If you’d like a delicious but sad period film experience, do watch “Bright Star”. It’s the love between John Keats and Fanny Brawne, and I love it dearly. Ben Whishaw was born to read the poetry of Keats.
Okay so, where I live (Canada, Newfoundland) we have the smallest ponies.
And the biggest dogs
Here’s a size comparison for the Newfoundland dog
That is a full grown dog and pony together LOOK AT THAT!
Now if you don’t think that’s the greatest shit ever I don’t know what is!
I have no regrets over spending my entire evening watching Mighty Ducks movies.
I’ve found that some of the gluten free all-purpose flours (cup for cup or the trader joe’s one) work pretty well as straight replacements in recipes — particularly cup for cup. Cup for cup is expensive though — $16 for 3 pounds at whole foods.
Ouch. I know I should bite the bullet and get a scale and assemble my own, but. Effort?
Try half almond flour, half coconut flour.
The flour I have is good (and if I use coconut flour, my best friend can’t eat them), but I have to work out how much less butter to use, and get the flax seed…ugh, this is a pain and a half.
The cookie experiment so far is…a failure. A delicious failure, but oh. Such a failure.
Thing is, I have to do them gluten free if I want to be able to eat them. And while I am an excellent baker when I can use wheat flour, I’m less of one when I have to leave it out.
Plus I don’t want to use xanthan or guar gums for structure. They’re expensive. So I tried chia seeds (since I always have them on hand), but they’re not enough on their own. I have to get flax seed as well. And keep experimenting. Expensively. Gluten free flour isn’t cheap. I may need to wait till the next paycheck to try again.
