Some changes


I know I haven’t used my blog in a while and I go on excited spurts of writing and then not. There’s a lot that happens behind the scenes here that is never posted about. The above picture is a few pages torn from my recipe notebook. The one on top is the banana bread recipe I love and is lovingly splattered with layers of banana juice. So why is it ripped out? Because I have Celiacs disease. The only “cure” or treatment is to maintain a 100% gluten free lifestyle. I’m starting over. Who knows if I’ll start posting here more as I learn about this new culinary world. But maybe it’ll become a lot more of personal musings or a recipe collection of the gems I find around the internet. Who knows?

But strangely, I never really had peanut butter cookies.

So on one of my days off from work, I decided to try the ultimate peanut butter cookie. These cookies are gluten-free, flourless goodness.
