Baking GF and egg-free

No sorry, its not a post about some new recipe...  :(

However, I'm excited because yesterday I found a blog called Fresh Love Homestead where the author has egg, dairy and gluten allergies.  So.... I can make yummy foods that both hubby and I can eat (me with my Celiac Disease/gluten issues and him with his egg allergy).

I LOVE FINDING RECIPES LIKE THESE! (Yes emphasis was meant) Because it means that I don't have to spend extra hours tweaking recipes to taste good and to pass visual inspection.

Here's the link so you can go check it out yourself!  ;)

Happy Saturday everyone!

Baking the Paleo way

Hubby has decided that he wants to eat Paleo in 2017 again (he did it in 2012) in the hopes of losing weight.  So I've been doing my best to come up with Paleo-acceptable foods. Last night it was banana bread made from coconut flour and no eggs.  I'll go add more details from my desktop computer plus a link to the recipe.

Here's the mixed dough, it was very thick.

EDITED 1/14/17

Well I found  out that I cannot post pictures on Blogger directly from my iPhone, though I know it is possible as I did it 3 years ago.

So... when I get pictures uploaded from my phone, I'll be back to update this post with pictures and more details.

Bye bye 2016, Hello 2017

I've doing really badly at this blogging thing with no posts in 2016.  However, in 2017 I hope to do better, with at least one post each month.  I have plenty of hopes and desires to have occur in 2017, but will have to write about them later... time to get Taw from school.

So hopes and desires....

I've got a list taped to my bathroom mirror reminding me of my daily things I need/want to accomplish (prayer, scriptures, brushing my teeth, taking vitamins, hugging my children, etc)... Yes I do need to write them down because courtesy of my gluteny problems (aka Celiac Disease), I often cannot remember that I need to do things, even easy things, and sometimes to do them at a specific time of day.

I have a list of to-do's for Jan-March 2017 that are bigger (ex: save $10/wk - disciplining myself; clean bedroom closet, throw away unneeded papers/receipts, clean under bed, declutter -- throw or give away X-amt unused things per month, etc.) and require more time spent on them.

Then I have a mental list (which may soon end up being taped to bathroom mirror too) of things I want accomplish throughout the year, such as: learn to knit hats, mittens and socks; show more love to my family; eliminate gluten COMPLETELY from my home; reuse/recycle 1 thing each month into something else, etc.
