This was, and still is, the hardest part for me. Playing with gluten free baking ingredients.
I'm going to be really honest with you here; I struggle with trying new foods. I like the foods and textures that I grew up eating. All of these other things and textures kind of scared me!
However, I wasn't going to show that fear to my kids. I slapped on a smile and bought a small fortune of baking ingredients.
I decided that the easiest thing to do would be to find one or two recipes and play around in the kitchen a few days a week. I firmly believe that treats are just that, treats, and so we only have them in the house once or twice a month. However, I did not want to be scrambling around at the last minute if I needed a special dish!
I went to Google and found a banana bread recipe and a brownie recipe. These are our two favorites so I wanted to have a good recipe for both.
Well the banana bread came out "okay" but the brownies were a disaster!
I have actually not really found a brownie recipe that we love but I will keep hunting until I do.
I have really learned to experiment more in the kitchen and accept failure as it comes, and trust me I have made some seriously nasty stuff. However, I have actually made some delicious dishes as well!
Next week I will share our favorite gluten free desert with you!
