I am going to try to post one specifically gluten free recipe each week, but for all of you gluten-avores still enjoying the pleasures of all purpose wheat flour, I will add an option for you. It’s a lot easier to convert back to gluten than to go the other way, let me tell you!
There was a bar of Scharffen Berger dark chocolate in the swag bag I received at the Food Blog Forum. My family, gastronomical cretins that they can sometimes be, was not offered any. I chose to break it into fourths and spread it out over four lovely breakfasts for gluten free me. I had some leftover Valentine’s chocolates for any passersby that mentioned that I was eating chocolate and they weren’t.
My husband keeps looking at my pancake photos and telling me that I need a circular ring so my pancakes come out in perfect circles. I haven’t been able to convince him that it isn’t the pouring that is the problem. It’s the flipping of the dang pancakes. I cannot tell you how many times I have elongated my cute circles when turning them over. You folks understand, right? We are going for taste here, not geometry.
I enjoyed eating these as I took the pictures. Usually when I bake, I have to fake the bites or enlist a volunteer from the ranks of onlookers. There are some definite advantages to my posting gluten free recipes once a week! The only child in me gloats over having something all to myself. I try to keep that only child person at bay, but sometimes she asserts herself and I lose control.
