Whether it’s a new take on your go-to classic or a new recipe from your favorite cookbook author, there will always be something to fit your needs. By now, it’s a fair assessment that you have probably seen it all. With releases from famous-chefs-turned-TV-personalities, internet stars, and former comedy writers, it’s safe to say that there is one common denominator connecting the lot: personality.
