Lime-Berry Corn Meal Muffins

I was looking for a gluten-free muffin to bake, these came out more than I was expecting. The lime zest make them so refreshing and the baked blueberries just pop in your mouth like a little balloon of flavor! So good! I like to bake muffins because they are the perfect portion. Don’t have to worry if one slice is thicker than the other. They freeze perfectly, so you always have a quick breakfast ready or a perfect munch with your coffee for a snack.

Gluten Free Apple Bread

My son is visiting! So excited! He loves to cook, bake and everything related. He’s been following a gluten-free diet for about a month now, will see how that turns out. Meanwhile, we had a great time baking this delicious apple bread. We made some little mistakes, like mixing up tablespoons with teaspoons, but it didn’t matter because it smelled and tasted wonderful anyway.

We had this bread for breakfast with a nice cup of coffee, we also had it for dessert with a little spoon of ice cream!

He found in the internet a mixture of flours to replace wheat flour. So you can transform any baking good to gluten-free. It was interesting all the way from the grocery store to the tasting. Just delicious and above all, building good memories!

Happy Thanksgiving!

IMG_0886

I wanted to know a little bit more about the celebration of Thanksgiving, so I did some research (maybe you already know). What I found out is that the newly arrived Pilgrims were dying because they didn’t know how to survive in the new environment. The Wampanoag Indians helped the Pilgrims adapt to a new lifestyle and save food for the harsh winters of New England. The first Thanksgiving Feast took place on November 1621, when the two communities, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians, gather at Plymouth, MA for a harvest celebration.

So I invite you to give thanks for the food on our tables and for the good will of people who are present in our lives. Happy Thanksgiving!

And speaking of food, I leave you this easy and yummy Mexican Style Cornbread with rajas recipe.  Rajas are California green Chiles roasted seeded and cut in long stripes. Have a good time!
