Healing Arts Sampler on Feb. 16

in Niwot at the Grange, 2nd Ave and Franklin St.  From 11am to 5pm.  I may be doing some massage there (if there’s enough room for my table).  I’ll also be having a donut tasting at the fair – some awesome gluten-free cake donuts.  Stop by and taste a sample, maybe get one to eat on the way home, or with a complimentary cup of coffee from our kitchen.

Healing Arts Samplers are our way of giving back to the community (holistic services at a fraction of their cost) and also a way of bringing holistic healing to public attention.  You’ll get to meet some great practitioners and try some new modalities or just have a session with something/someone you know works for you.  See the website for who will be there and what will be available.

Hope to see you on Saturday.  All sessions are $10/20 minutes and you can have more time if you wish.  You just pay accordingly – $5 for every additional 10 minutes.

Stay warm, Angela

Cornless corn bread???

That’s what my grand kids like to call my quick yeast-free ‘bread’ that I’ve been baking lately.  It’s a bit sweet, kinda crumbly like real corn bread, tastes almost like cornbread, and makes awesome ‘eggy bread’ (their version of French toast).  So, I’m going to have to share this with you all.  Just a few ingredients, no rising time, bakes in about 20-25 minutes and make the kids very happy.

Although some previously banned ingredients have been added back to their diet (some sugar, some butter and cheese), they are still corn free, soy free, and pretty much sugar free (except in some baked goods), and dairy free with the exception of the cheese and butter in small amounts.

Depending on how lazy I am when I make it or how much time I have, when I use the mixer this has a more bread-like texture (but not much more) and if I mix it by hand (really lazy or in a hurry) it has a more cornbread texture.  Just sayin’.

Cornless Corn Bread

Preheat oven to 350F

Ingredients:

1/2 C organic brown rice flour

1/2 C organic white rice flour

1-1/2 Tbsp organic evaporated cane juice

1-3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp sea salt (I use Himalayan pink salt)

1 egg (I just Jumbo eggs)

1/2 C milk of your choice (I use Almond or Coconut Milk)

2 Tbsp oil (I use light Olive oil)

Mix dry ingredients well.  In separate cup, mix egg, milk, and oil, then add to the dry ingredients. Mix by hand or mixer until well combined. The batter is like a muffin mix.  Pour into greased and floured pan – 8”x4” loaf pan (doesn’t rise very much), 2 mini loaf pans, round cake pan, brownie pan, etc.  Whatever works for you.

Bake at 350F.  Just adjust the baking time accordingly.  In the loaf pan, it takes about 25 minutes, about 20 in the mini loaf pans, and probably less in the other pans.  Check after 15 minutes to see how done it is.  Too long and it’s too crumbly, too little and it’s not done enough.

I’m sure you can add things to this, or use different flour combinations or just one flour alone.  I’m finding that I like the brown and white rice combo for this.  Sometimes I’ll use a vanilla flavored Almond or Coconut milk and that sweetens up the bread a bit.

Enjoy!!  This is easy enough for the kids to make (young ones with supervision, of course).

Pictures next time.  I made two loaves this morning an they’re both gone before I decided to write this up.
