Sophie's Lemonade · Better Together BC →
It has been three year running now that Sophie and I have made a cooking video. We had a lot of fun making lemonade this year. I didn’t do my usual plea for votes as we have won the past two years, and the reward was watching my daughter become an entrepreneur and cook!
