What the heck is that???? It's a blueberry friand slice, fresh outta the oven. I know it looks anemic, but it is actually quite a lovely treat!!! I used to be really into baking - for our first year of marriage, you couldn't keep me away from the oven. I would bake some yummy treat at least once a week. And then on the 27th of December, our oven blew up. We were oven-less until April this year, and during that time I learnt to cope without the luxury of cooking roasts, pizzas, lasagnes, casseroles... and baked treats. So when the oven was finally fixed in April, while I relished the opportunity to roast and make pizzas and stuff again, baking somehow fell by the wayside. Sad! I want to get back into it, because a baking wife is a GREAT wife!! Ha. So last night I made this blueberry friand slice, which I've had in my recipe file for about a year, tempting me each week as I flick through and plan meals. Yay!
I'm an Aussie wife who loves flowers, colours and good coffee. I married a Californian computer-nerd who is the love of my life! Together we created the cutest baby in the universe and I spend my days taking care of him in our always-a-work-in-progress little home. Life is good. Really really good.
