Vegan Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes

So I’ve got a couple of things I want to talk with you guys about today.  Daft Punk and these chummy pancakes. Let’s talk about Daft Punk first. So I’ve known about Daft Punk for quite a while (upon a smidge of researching, I found that they’ve been around since the 1990s), but for the […]

Cinnamon Rolls

Christmas came and I must say, it was pretty spectacular.  It was simple, but I like simple.  Just us and our lovely little animals enjoying each other’s company while enjoying Christmas specials (A Christmas Story!), munching on special treats (cinnamon rolls, anybody?), and staying up into the wee hours of the morning knitting Christmas gifts.  […]

Green Brilliance Smoothie

Cherry Almond Galette

CHERRY ALMOND GALETTE Slightly adapted from Sara Forte at Sprouted Kitchen, http://www.sproutedkitchen.com/home/2013/6/9/cherry-almond-galette.html.  I could imagine this being equally delicious served with some crème fraiche infused with vanilla and almond extracts and gingerly sweetened with some clover honey. 110 grams / 3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour 70 grams / 1/2 cup spelt flour 1 tablespoon unrefined cane […]
