pancakes, sunsets and Stinkers

This morning we had pancakes for breakfast.
Yeah that's right, PANCAKES.

Gluten free ones obviously.

And you know what the EASIEST thing is?
Picking up a prepackaged gluten free flour and switching it out for regular flour.
This time we used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour blend.
We ran out of the mix that I usually make up myself, and the health food store didn't have any sorghum OR garfava.
So I panicked and searched for an alternative.

It's not too bad.
I think that in all honesty I prefer our scratch mix, but in a pinch this was pretty good.

I made two batches of chocolate cookies this week (shut up I know!) using this flour and while they weren't the INSANITY that these cookies are known for, they were pretty damn delicious.

I did make them twice after all.


This little stinker is a late Christmas gift for Alex. At Floating Gold Iceberg we drew names for our Christmas swap and I got the lovely Miss Alex.
She's not expecting this, and he came together through divine inspiration.
Back in Art School I used to draw these hilarious little demons on EVERYTHING and I have been thinking about bringing them back.
This is their first new incarnation.
I am loving embroidery again right now.

And tonight we had a BEAUTIFUL sunset. All day it was gorgeous, not even that cold, and when I popped outside to bring Indiana Jones in (long story) I caught a glimpse of it and had to run inside for the camera.

As far as pre-packaged gluten free flour goes, I LOVE Jules' Nearly Normal flour that I order online. Much better than Bob's in my opinion and uses expandex so the baked goods don't go old! I use it in my favorite Tollhouse Chocolate Chip cookies...delicious!

I would LOVE to see those little demaon guys on a necklace, or charm, or something. Adorable.
