I have been losing some of my interest in "Kitchen Creating" lately.
When I was first diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, it was a pain in the butt... well, mostly the finger... but it was also a challenge.
I started experimenting with my favourite recipes to make them Diabetes friendly. I enjoyed the challenge and rose to it.
But, as with all chronic conditions, it's gotten a little dreary. A little too much hassle some days to cook for just me.
Since we've moved, I've been introduced to gluten-free cooking and baking. There are several people at church who can't tolerate gluten.
And the Conquering Spirit has been revived.
First it was gluten-free cookies for open house and youth group snack.
Today it was blueberry muffins.
I saw "Bob's Red Mill Biscuit & Baking Mix" at Safeway the other day, and I picked up a bag.
It has a recipe for pancakes and biscuits on the package, and it says to "use in your favourite recipes that call for baking mix..."
So I did.
The muffins had a slightly different taste, the way whole wheat products taste different from white flour things, but they turned out really well. Nice consistency, nicely risen.
And, so I give you:
Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins.
Three cheers for Bob's Red Mill!
