    My daughter loves baking. She will cook as well, but her true passion lies in baking.

    Given that she is only eleven, I am incredibly proud of her culinary skills.

    A basic study of the world’s most accepted color.

    The color blue, one of the 3 additive primary colors (Red, Green, Blue - or known as RGB) and one of the 3 subtractive primaries (Red, Yellow, Blue - or also known as RYB in the painting world) is the world’s most well accepted color. This really isn’t surprising, remember the last time you asked someone what their favorite color was? If it wasn’t blue - it was probably in their top 3. In contrast to this colors like yellow are typically love it or hate it.
