This is The Cursed Cook. Every single time she cooks or bakes for a man she likes he leaves. And it is not because her cooking
is so bad that the men leave. Nonetheless she keeps making food, hoping that one day she will break the curse.
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I do not know if that is true or not, but if it is then those she has cooked for are the ones that are unable to receive all
the love she has to give.
