Hope everyone had a lovely Easter, or whatever holiday you celebrate. Now, what would possess me to go out and bring home more than 11 pounds of various flours?Lately in my quest to be gluten-free I’ve used a pre-mixed all-purpose flour blend, but haven’t been the biggest fan of the flavor and texture. So I turned to Gluten-Free Girl and her all-purpose flour mix, which has 7 ingredients. Then I got to use my new Williams-Sonoma Teacake Pan.For some reason, the recipe in the package only made half of what it stated, but they were still quite tasty. I added some fresh lemon juice to the glaze for a little springy flavor.They sat on the table with the other desserts.And my family didn’t even know they were gluten-free.
Good thing my Mom’s little collection of Beatrix Potter friends didn’t say a word.
Forgive me for another pet post: Humphrey is 100 days old today (by my estimation) and that’s an important holiday in Korean culture. I’ve been pretty excited about taking language classes at The Korean Society and have even been able to order food in Korean, cause really, let’s talk about priorities here. As part of the 생일 (birthday) celebration, the baby has various objects set out before him and his choice is said to predict his future. Humphrey chose a yellow ball with a marble inside.So, shall we say he’s channeling his yellow Asian side? Trying to coordinate with the daffodils? Either way, cheers and love to him. Because growing up is hard to do and he needs all the rest he can get. And somehow I don’t think that will be a problem.
