Matcha Madeleines

Moist and buttery sweet madeleines pair beautifully with the bitter sweetness of matcha and a good cup of tea! 

School has started for me! It's more or less a week of just meeting friends and settling in and trying not to lose my way in the huge campus. For me the part I look forward to most though is meeting up with friends I haven't seen for a while and really just being with the people I care about. It's comforting to know that there all people who would always be there for me in tough times and in good. 

Sometimes, though, it feels a little pointless to give so much and get nothing in return at the end. I help and do things that I'm not obliged to do- but yet sometimes I don't feel like I've done anything to help, or if anyone really appreciates it. Or if my presence would be missed if I weren't there. Perhaps good things will be repaid some other day, and maybe people will be notice someday. Have faith in yourself, and do what you feel is right. 

I'm leaving you with some comforting treats for a midday snack. They're delicious and super quick to make if you don't bother with Madeleine humps- these are just as good without chilling in the fridge. Eat these warm or dipped in dark chocolate- or simply with a cup of tea.
