I bought a new toaster for the B&B today. It toasts and slides out the results in less than 90 seconds. I debated whether it is worth it. One, I time my poached eggs by the toaster which I won't be able to do any longer... and Two, I wonder i... Read more

Saturday, February 25, 2012      1 comments

I think I got tired of all the baking... but today was a friend's birthday so I made a gluten free cake - not coconut. I did make crepes for guests with coconut oil so I suppose I am learning to make some small changes. It has been busy with g... Read more
Coconut peanut butter cookies and Coconut macaroons
Wednesday, February 22, 2012      2 comments

Both of these are basic recipes... but with added coconut flour which makes them cake like. I added extra nuts and chocolate chips to the PB cookies and cocoa powder to the macaroons. The macaroons were the hit. The PB ones are "good for you" ... Read more

Today I am making coconut butterscotch cookies. They say they are a "buttery macaroon". Hmm. Well it is worth a try. I'll see how the reviews turn out from guests and family. I have entered the recipes for the ones that got 2 thumbs up in m... Read more

Saturday, February 18, 2012      1 comments

Today's recipe was gingerbread and it is a nice moist cake. I like it and will see how the kids feel about it. DH will have to wait until he returns and I will certainly make it again or for guests. I have not done the nutritional value but l... Read more
Recipe number 5 in the coconut challenge
Friday, February 17, 2012      2 comments

Today I substituted coconut oil in my Nanny's oatmeal cookie recipe. This was a scary decision because this is a no fail recipe for guests. The result was a slightly dryer, less buttery cookie but they still flew off the plate. Since I don't ... Read more

When I did the passion test one of the things that I was told was when you make clear your passions then the way to your passions will become clear. Having DH has not been good for me. I have been stressing and turning to food. I feel u... Read more

The coconut apple crisp is edible. My guests had it with sausages and fruits this morning. Another recipe I would not make again though. This morning I went for my ENT apt. and I expected the worse. That didn't happen. The camera went ... Read more

Today I baked coconut flour cheese/garlic biscuits. I have a good gluten free baking powder biscuit recipe and I would not give it up after trying these. A bit disappointing. The recipe makes 8 golf ball size biscuits. As expected you... Read more

I put all the ingredients into the spark planner and decided a serving could be 1/10 of a loaf... very generous! You could easily eat half the serving size pieces for a nice snack and still be satisfied. Coconut flour banana nut bread is q... Read more

I am a great believer that things don't happen by accident. So when I received a couple of utubes and articles about coconut I thought I would look at it more seriously... just for interest. Coconut flour is gluten free. Coconut oil is possibl... Read more

I discovered an addictive "carrot cake jam" at a friend's house and felt very guilty but put some on the fresh rolls she had made for breakfast. Oh so good. Gingery and sweet. I saw the same label at the health food store and decided I would ... Read more
