Hello everyone! Work has been crazy busy lately with the number of cases compounding every passing day. I have recently started baking again and often bring it to the office to share. Many of my colleagues are gluten free so I have been trying out more gluten free recipes. While going through my recipe arsenal I came across this friand recipe I tried during Christmas. Friands are little almond cakes that taste absolutely exquisite but cost a fortune at cafes. I admit, I never got around to blogging about it because I felt that they were a bit too dense. But I have now tweaked the recipe and am happy to report that I will never buy another friand in the cafe again.
Goodness me, I can’t believe that I have been living in Nelson for a whole month now. How time flies. To my horror I also noticed that the last time I posted something here was in January! My apologies. Do not worry though, I have finally sorted myself out and I am back to blog with a vengeance (if time permits). I will try to post a recipe soon but this week I thought I’d do an update and also some lessons learned from this grand moving adventure.
Yes, I have been terrible at updating. 2 posts in 1 month. Gosh, is this what having a job does? Leaves you with no time to do anything else besides housework, groceries and preparing meals? Either I really am just terrible at multitasking or I have yet to find the right balance between life and work. Anywho, I really wanted to get this post up because February 2016 is about to bring a whole lots of changes. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you would probably know about these changes already.
Happy New Year everyone! Can you believe we are in 2016 already? The last year has really gone by in a blur. In fact I have yet to come up with any New Year resolutions…perhaps I will just stick to the same ones as I have every year:
- Get a job (this used to be ‘do well in school’ but since I’ve graduated…).
- Be happy and grateful for what I have.
- Exercise more.
- Lead a healthier lifestyle.
Oh, perhaps I will add in a fifth resolution this year – to write more frequently here on The Chai Ninja. Now that the resolutions are done and dusted lets get down to business.
