Busy as a Bee... Flours and Hunny Update

Well, life sure is busy with two kids.  I expected it to be so, but I don't think I truly understood the impact... And I'm not sure it makes much sense that time passes so quickly when there are not quite enough hours in the day.  Not that I wouldn't do it all again...

for those who can't decide on a favorite flavor,

I have been baking, of course, but have not been able to get online much to share about the projects.  For the sake of a quick update, here are a few recent creations.


Summer Citrus Rose Cake -
freshly squeezed and zested orange cake with a
seedless raspberry glaze and a mini chocolate chip border

Our 1st Holiday Gingerbread House -
not only was it entirely gluten and dairy-free, but it was also delicious and fun to eat!

I have also changed the bakery name slightly to 'Flours & Hunny' - do you like it?  Since many baked goods contain local, organic honey along with the many gluten-free flours, I think it fits well.  We also have a facebook page now too.  Please join us there by 'liking' the page, and then you will get updates a bit more frequently.  I've been enjoying the ability to pose questions, get feedback, and post pictures quickly and easily.

Kale Salad

Chocolate Sunbutter Millet Squares
(simple to make, very few ingredients
and free of all common allergens!)
Strangely enough, considering the lack of "free" time, my husband and I have started yet another project called Our Sustainable Kids.  Please check it out and let us know what you think.  We'll be inviting other parents, health experts and others to join us in that blog venture all about raising healthy, active children.  And I'll be posting recipes there, like these to the left too (gluten and dairy-free, of course!).
