Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
I think most that come to my blog only see me as someone who "does furniture" But I'm so much more than that.
I'm a mom (my kids have grown and moved out)
I'm a wife (my husband might wonder if I live with him or in my workshop)
I'm a sister and a daughter/in law
I LOVE shoes and purses and have learned (most of the time) to enjoy the shoes while they sit in the store, then go back for frequent visits :)
I'm also a foodie. I think that's what people that cook or eat or whatever are called right?
I love to cook, I love to bake and I love to do big dinners with new recipes.
And I love to save money. (don't we all)
A few weeks back I was invited to a facebook group that is all about bartering. As things go it was decided that I would bake some gluten free muffins in exchange for a haircut.
How awesome is that?
So off in search of a gluten free recipe I went, and I found a wonderful one at Simply Gluten Free
I am just posting the link to the recipe and not repeating it here.
And just so I had something to compare it to, I also tried another blueberry muffin recipe from Cooking on the Side
Since this was my first time doing muffins gluten free I thought I would share it with you here.
The first picture is from the first recipe just as they were heading in the oven. I do not have an after picture of this recipe because I was also baking a couple loaves of bread and making two home made soups at the time.
These two are from the second recipe. They look rather cumbly...but they aren't, I was just knocking off some of my mess from a messy scooping in before baking.
My daughter assures me that they are wonderful (I didn't eat any since they are for that haircut tomorrow)
So I got to bake, I got to save money and I am getting a haircut. Makes for a very happy Monday.
Ohhh and the bread came out great as well, daughter and hubby were very happy at supper time. Fresh bread with soup always goes over well :)
