Do you know about my new baby vintage shoppe?

Pumpernickel Toast is open for business on Etsy! I'm finding and adding new things all the time!

I'm just loving hunting for these wonderful baby things! It's so much fun! Too bad my baby is 8 and a half......

circus wedding.

This treasury made me smile.... and so I had to share it. What an original theme, right?

Thanks MiriMoMo for creating such a fun and lively treasury and for making my shoes a part of it.

If you have included anything from my shop in your treasury and would like me to possibly feature the treasury here, on my blog, please let me know. This could be a reoccurring blog feature.

forget the flour.

For a while I've wondered if I would feel better if I cut glutens from my diet.

No, I'm not allergic to wheat and no, I don't have Celiac's or anything. Just done a tiny bit of research and really do believe that as a culture, we might over consume glutens.

Anyway..... back to the reason for this blog post. Last night D and I were heading to some friends' house to hang out. I decided I'd whip together a desert we could all share. Then I remembered my friend doesn't eat gluten (but her kids do). Shooooot! I really had to think for a minute if there was something I could make that we could all eat and enjoy. Fortunately I had a bag of Red Mill Gluten Free Flour sitting on the shelf in my pantry!

With a quick internet search I discovered Gluten-Free Girl's blog! I took her recipe for gluten free blueberry muffins, and used it as a guideline for my.......

Gluten Free Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins!
I used this recipe as a guideline, Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Zest, by Gluten-Free Girl.

Instead of her flour suggestions, I used 1 cup white rice flour and 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour. There was no yogurt in my fridge so I used 1 1/4 cups sour cream mixed with 1/4 cup milk. Instead of blueberries, I added 1 cup fresh raspberries and about 1 cup chocolate chips.

The truth is I could give up glutens if all gluten free foods tasted as good as these muffins! 3 out of 4 kids approved and my gluten-free mama friend was happy too! As far as the 4th kid.... well I promised that cute little blondie chocolate chip cookies. She specifically asked if I would make them with "real flour." But of course!
