Over the weekend, after the Hurricane scare was over,
which was after the earthquake scare was over as well around here.
(tornado a mile from our house in May, so scary, then the earthquake that made my sofa literally bounce, now the hurricane, we finally got our emergency back packs ready for the "just in case we have to run" situation!)
I was ready to make a new recipe, gluten free. I received an email
with this delicious looking cake and I had to try it.
It is absolutely delicious and moist and if you served it to your non-gluten free friends, they'd never know the difference.
The recipe is from
and it is so easy to make and so delicious, the only thing is that the recipe doesn't call for any salt so I added a 1/2 teaspoon and it came out delicious.
Great with coffee or tea.
Next time I will make it with blueberries, because I LOVE blueberries!
On another subject, I added a curtain to my kitchen window which I left bare because the views from there are just beautiful and I didn't want anything to cover that up, plus we only get the morning sun there so I wanted to keep from putting anything up that blocked any natural light.
Going through my moms linens a week ago and we came across these pretty lacy table top runners and I took one to turn into a valance
It lets all the light in and the color goes perfectly, it's a cream color. I didn't even bother making holes in our walls I just hung the rod over on top of our cabinets and added cafe rings.
Can you see the pretty lace detail? Mom had a bunch of these in different sizes so I think I may be picking out some more when I see them again in New York.
Hope your day is as beautiful as mine!
