6 Weeks Isn’t Too Bad…

Standard

I feel like I was just writing my Beach Blog Break post, but I must make a similar post again, now. One week was bad enough, but I hate to say that I will be away for the following 6 weeks. Gasp! I know, tragic. But…I have gathered and created many recipes that I hope will satisfy bloggers everywhere, and that I will return to high site visit stats, likes, comments, and who knows what! I love blogging and cooking, and will be back as soon as possible.

Let me leave you with these notes:

Make the most of your summer. Cook in your spare time. Get with friends. Be with your family. Have fun. Enjoy yourself. Make use of your spare time…every minute. Even if what you really need is just a nap, do it. But get outside and do the things you love (which may keep you inside!).

Everyone have a great 4th of July as well! Oh! That reminds me, I occasionally go on Pinterest and saw a great 4th of July idea. I highly encourage you to check it out because it is so cool and delicious looking, and that’s coming from me, someone who isn’t the biggest fan of sweets.

Until 6 weeks from now!

Beach Blog Break

Standard

I know this post is not truly necessary, but I just wanted to let any readers out there know that I will not be posting for at least a week, because I am going out-of-town to the BEACH! Hopefully I will post in the following week. While I’m on the topic of not being able to post…I am tremendously sorry to say I will not be able to post for most of the summer after that, because I will be out-of-town without computer access. So I hope that everyone has a bright, sunny, and cheerful summer and that you get some delicious and wonderful cooking squeezed in!

Some quick summer to-do’s:

  • Have a cook-out…can’t go wrong there. Have some friends and neighbors over and grill some yummy food. You could also try out some recipes on your friends and family!
  • Spend a day at the beach…if you live close to one, it’s always fun to just pack the car, spend a day on the beach, and come home at night.
  • Go outside…simple and vague, but I mean just that. Summer is so nice, so don’t waste any spare moments you have. Ride a bike, take a walk, have a picnic, get together with old friends, whatever. Just enjoy the sunshine and warm weather!

Happy Summer!

Coming Soon…

Standard

Ah! I’m so sorry it has been so long since my last post. The past few days have been crazy busy for me, and I just haven’t had time to cook much. Anyway, while I don’t have a complete recipe to share in this post, I do plan on cooking a bunch this weekend and hopefully during this week.

So here is what to expect in the coming days…

  • Homemade Pasta
  • My own, original pizza recipe
  • Spinach, Mushroom, Chicken Stir Fry
  • Homemade bread (hopefully)

I hope to get to all these recipes and hopefully MORE, but I am going to be pretty busy again this weekend, so these might me the only ones I manage. The first recipe will either be the pasta or the stir fry. I can’t wait to get cooking!

Again, sorry for the recipe lapse. I hope to make it up with these (hopefully) delicious recipes which are, by the way, all ORIGINAL recipes. I am so excited to try them out! Thanks for your patience.

Upcoming Weekend Plan

Standard

Okay, this weekend I really want to get cooking! There are so many recipes I want to try, but I have to spread them out. After all, I can’t make tens of recipes over the course of only two days (well, I guess I could, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon). Given that fact, I have to pick and choose my recipes and make them whenever I have a large chunck of free time. Otherwise, I have to really try hard to squeeze in any special recipes during the week.

Anyway, looking forward to this coming weekend. These are the recipes I hope/want to make:

  • pancake popovers or regular popovers
  • pancake crepes
  • flourless pizza

Of course, this is just a vague outline and I will really try hard to fit these in. However, I will say this: I definitely plan on making pancake crepes and probably a popover recipe, but I am not entirely sure I will be able to make the flourless pizza. Nevertheless, I do have flourless pizza as my #1 recipe to try/make and am so excited to do so (I found the recipe almost 2 months ago and have been dying to try it), so I do really want to attempt it this weekend.

Now, just as an added note, these are just recipes I want to make at some point (soon):

  • brazilian cheese rolls
  • spoon bread
  • cheese muffins
  • corn muffins
  • baked pancake
  • mozzarella sticks

Happy Easter…and Birthday!

Standard

Happy Easter everyone! Enjoy your first day to enjoy whatever you gave up for lent, enjoy the candy, enjoy the Easter egg hunts, enjoy the joy, enjoy your kids, enjoy your parents, enjoy your family, enjoy today! I’d also like to give a shout out to my sister, who just turned 18 today…Happy Birthday Sis’!

This is going to be a great cooking day, because it is a double special occasion after all. Here is my family’s delicious meal plan for Easter:

Breakfast: Eggs and biscuits (sausage for those non-GF-ers)

Lunch: Leftover cheese pizza and salad, and some hard boiled eggs, of course (after we die them!)

Dinner: Eating out for my sister’s birthday

I love Easter–it is a great, carefree holiday. Having said that, however, I need to get to church now!

Pictures Coming Soon!

Standard

I know I have posted a few recipes, and I would like to apologize for the lack of visual content. I know I will want to make these again, so I will try to get some photos posted as soon as possible! Thank you for understanding…I am new to this after all. I’m also a little forgetful, so sometimes I only remeber to take a picture after whatever I’ve made is finished off. So bear with me as I get the hang of blogging. Thank you!

Welcome!

Hello world, universe, and all who view this! I have been wanting to create this blog for a long time, and am so happy I finally have. I have recently fallen in love with baking….specifically gluten free baking, because I found out I have celiacs disease three years ago. I wanted this blog to share my discoveries–recipes, ideas, photos, and whatever else I may want to share. Being gluten free is not as big a pain to me as with some people, mostly because I don’t like sweets (believe it or not). But also because I had already been eating a lot of gluten free foods anyway. My mission now is finding the best replacements for the few foods I do miss. My first two recipes were biscuits and goldfish…and my entire family (not gluten free) LOVED them! Now I hope I can share my recipes with others. Because the life of a celiac can be delicious.
