Bystro Blog is back! Its been almost five months since my last post and anyone may be excused for thinking that this blog is dead. But no, I was just taking a long break to change careers. I have been in the process of transitioning from chemical engineering to web development by studying at a “bootcamp” called The Firehose Project. It was a great experience and I learned a ton about building websites. The work has been pretty intense and used up all of my time that’s not taken up by the family. I graduated about three weeks ago and since then have been busy with online courses and personal projects. One of these projects is a recipe sharing site, so more on that in a later post. Now, the only thing that’s left to do is to find a job.
Warning: shameless self-promotion ahead! If you know of anyone looking for a web developer specializing in Ruby on Rails, please let me know. I would really appreciate it.
In the meantime, I’d like to share my favorite pancake recipe. These are easier and faster to make than any other “from-scratch” pancake recipe that I’ve tried. The recipe was a random find on a blog called Broke and Bougie. I will not post the detailed recipe because it can be seen here. It involves mixing oatmeal, eggs, and a banana with a food processor until the mixture turns into a batter and frying it. The pancakes come out fluffy and with a light banana flavor. A small change I made to the recipe was that I used three whole eggs instead of four egg whites. Also, the vanilla extract seemed to be lost among the other ingredients and made no noticeable difference.
