We're hoping and scheming here in Treatsies land. As I write, I'm testing a recipe for Hawaiian bread pudding. Fingers crossed.
After a year of searching for work, balancing life, making new friends, and adjusting to a new city, it's time to get over my personal negativity and start racing down the path toward what I want to do with my life. I'm ready to work toward my own dream. It will be a long path, but it starts here, in my living room on this computer and in my kitchen. Though I'm still working part time, I have dedicated myself to using my time off to discovering what it will take to bring our treats to the people of Honolulu.
At the moment I'm looking at a mountain of red tape that needs to be untangled. If you have any tips for how to make that a bit easier, I'd love to hear them. The first step is setting up a meeting with the Culinary Incubator Kitchen at the Pacific Gateway Center. I hope they'll have a few answers about where to begin.
We're also working with some local artists to design a new logo, which leads to business cards and stickers, not to mention a new website that will make it easier for you to order your favorite treats for delivery. If you want to trade your skills for cake, give me a call. I can't wait to see what we come up with.
Soon we'll be passing out our card all over town and hopefully getting some orders so we can save up to expand our business with a van that will bring our treats to the streets.
In the meantime, I made you some chai-spice muffins. After all, treats are what we're really all about. As a non-coffee drinker, I long ago learned to love chai lattes. I love the idea of capturing that flavor in other places. These muffins have a great warm spice flavor and a hint of sweetness from the double layer of glaze I put on them. Because the only thing better than one layer of glaze is two layers. Don't worry, though. They're not overly sweet. Tender muffins that pack a punch of flavor can never be bad. Want some?
Thank you, Treatsies fans, for all of your help and support. We can't grow without you! More exciting news and delicious treats coming your way next week.
