Nutella to welcome


My longtime primary school friend Keith, was back from Germany last week, after a 6-month academic exchange program so we had a BBQ dinner gathering in his honor. Yours truely was asked to make the dessert for the night and I thought chocolate would be perfect to go with the smokiness from the food. Thus, I finally had the chance to make the long-awaiting Nutella Cake recipe sitting amongst my many to-make recipes. The recipe, originally by the original domestic goddess, Nigella Lawson, was adapted by shiokadelicious and I in turn, followed that.

The cake was just amazing! The cake was dense, sort of like a torte, but yet the ground hazelnut within actually offsets the denseness such that one do not get the heavy-in-the-stomach a.k.a guilty type of feeling. I divided the calories cut the cake into 16 slices and it was just the perfect sweet ending.

Everybody, let's welcome Keith back home.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
