Happy Valentines:)

We don’t make a big, extravagant deal out of Valentine’s Day.  This year a made Kelly & each of the kids a little scripture card about love (from the leftover Cricut shapes Tobin had cut out).  And, I found cute hats for $.60 at Target for the kids (pink & red)

Kelly got me a sweet card and some gluten-free shortbread cookies that I love:)


German Pancakes

Found a yummy gluten free recipe, from Domata (gluten free flour), this last time we didn’t have enough and used 1/2 Domata & 1/2 Namaste Perfect Flour Blend and we liked it better.  They are a cross between a crepe and a muffin and an omelet.

  • 1 cup milk-we use coconut milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup Domata Recipe Ready gluten free flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. orange zest (optional)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted-we use grapeseed or coconut oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Blend first six ingredients (milk thru orange zest) in a blender.Blend in butter a little at a time, in order to temper the eggs.Grease muffin tins and fill cups slightly less than ½ full.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until puffy and golden on top.Serve with your favorite toppings. We have used honey & powdered sugar, real maple syrup, strawberry jam & baked cinnamon apples.

They have found their way into our regular breakfast rotation.

Ezra’s birthday party

We had a small party right after church and then went roller skating (where Ezra invited Jenna & Charlie to join us)

So, if you know my history with birthday cakes, you’ll know that we were pretty excited about how this one turned out:)


Love this picture of Ezra not wanting to have his picture taken!
