  24. Kylie @ A Hungry Spoon

    Woo-hoo!!!! Congratulations on your graduation! How exciting 🙂 Your meal looks award-winning for sure. What does level 2 entail? What distinguishes it from Level 1? Level 1 looked so advanced (and delicious!) to me, I can’t imagine it getting any harder than what you’ve already done!

    Enjoy your graduation celebration week 🙂

  25. Jaylyn

    How did you finance your education? I’d love to go myself, but wondering what the options are?
