Cheddar Bay Biscuits (Gluten-Free!)

Hello, internet! It’s already April, and wouldn’t you know it, we got snow yesterday morning. Some surprise.

I’ve been a lot busier than I’d like to be these days. The good news is that now that it stays lighter for longer, I don’t feel the need to close up shop shortly after getting home from work. I can cook when I get home, I don’t need to rush, and I can photograph my food without needing to work from home… I mean, what? I don’t do that.

My friend came over this weekend and we made Indian food — Chicken Curry, it was delicious. I even had some leftover naan bread, spiced some chick peas, the works. The best part was that after, she asked me to do Reiki on her. I didn’t have a lot of time to give it enough thought to say no, but I realized how apprehensive I was do actually practice Reiki. Will people think I’m weird? Will they believe what I’m actually doing? If I do sessions on people, will they actually think that what I’m doing is legitimate?

I did a quick half hour session on her, and oddly enough, once I did it, I stopped worrying about the legitimacy of the practice and fell right into it like a seasoned habit. I was able to pick up on physical energy blockages that manifested from what was going on in her life and I was able to clear them to set her on the right path. It was nice hearing from her yesterday that she said she felt a lot better and truly believes that it makes a world of difference after she receives Reiki. Perhaps as I study it more, I’ll practice on more people 🙂

No other updates from me, but I wanted to leave you a little treat. I LOVE biscuits. Like, I can’t even convey in words how excited I am when a restaurant has good biscuits, or biscuits and gravy (HUGE points… love it so much). Here’s a little gluten free treat, cheddar Old Bay biscuits!!!
