Review: Gluten Free “Animal Crackers”

gf_arrowrootLast week I was sick ALL week long with a bad cold. It was horrible. I had no appetite at all but would get some odd cravings and that’s all I wanted to eat and couldn’t think of anything else. I’m usually that way when I’m sick. And most often the only thing I can think of eating is something fresh. Usually some kind of fruit. Last week I survived primarily off of peaches.

Then I had this craving. For animal crackers. Which are cookies, so I have no idea why they are called crackers…. but I digress.

I needed to have them. I wanted that arrowroot flavour in tiny animal shaped form. I hunted down some gluten free ones that are awesome and satisfied me! Mi-Del Gluten Free Arrowroot cookies- that just happen to be in the shape of animals 🙂

If you ever get the same craving as I did, you should try these. They are really awesome.



Recipe: Peanut Butter Cookies with Cinnamon Sugar

Our peanut butter cookies!

So I did some baking again- shocker.

As time goes on you’ll come to realize that I have a baking problem. Anytime I want something sweet (which is often) I bake.

This time I had my husbands help, which I think is a first. We made peanut butter cookies then rolled them in cinnamon sugar.

I followed this recipe, which is just slightly different than the usual easy version on the side of most jars of peanut butter (peanut butter, egg, sugar) I find that adding the brown sugar gives it a really caramel-y taste. And they are more crispy than usual- which I personally like. Also we opted to roll them in cinnamon sugar instead of adding cinnamon to the dough.

Whipped them up from start to finish in less than a half hour.

Try them as a treat this weekend!
