DIY Gluten-Free Mix™ — Butter Scones

Americans are often overwhelmed at baking scones, but I don’t quite understand why.  In reality, they are another form of a quick bread, much like muffins, but without the special baking pans.  Scones have a long and interesting history.  The first mention of them is in the mid-1500’s in Scotland and England.  They are always […]

How to Make a Dutch Baby Pancake to Share

Technically a breakfast item on most menus, my teenagers used to beg for this for dinner.  Why not? Dutch baby’s are big, puffy egg pancakes usually served with fruit compote in the center.  A little too sweet for me most of the time, but that never lowed dow the teens!  Making these is a lot […]

Too Much Bread Here–What Shall I Do?
