From today on the days will be busier and fly seemingly quicker than before. One of my favorite apps I use is Cozi. It helps me coordinate our schedules and shopping lists. We can both add items to our shopping list and both of us can see it from our phones. This app has some other wonderful features, and for the holidays it has produced some downloadable planning lists to help things run smoothly, I hope you find them as useful as I do.
May this be your best Holiday Season Ever!
Giving up grains makes you creative when it comes to baking. It took some experimenting to get the just right all-purpose flour mix. Yet, there are still recipes that I had that called for self-rising flour. More experimenting. This recipe will work for conventional and alternative flours. I hope this will help you whether you use traditional or alternative flours. It is super easy.
Mix ingredients well. Store in a sealable container in a dry place.
Never run out of confectioners’ sugar again. You can also replace the refined confectioners’ sugar with Honey, Coconut or Maple “confectioners’ sugar”. I have been trying to avoid refined sugars and replacing them with real and more nutritious alternatives. I have came across a lot of recipes that call for confectioners’ sugar. You know that powdery stuff in many a frostings. It is so easy to make your own. Why not try these better versions.
The ratios are all the same, whatever sugar you choose to use.
- 2 c sugar (honey, maple, coconut)
- 1/4 c arrowroot.
I have made this with honey granules, maple sugar and coconut sugar.
Combine ingredients into a food processor. Blend until it resembles the texture of confectioner’s sugar. Store in a sealable container. I like to use mason jars. Use in place of confectioners’ sugar.
These are great tips for the busy family.
Hope this article helps you to let your health begin in your kitchen.
Save $$$ by doing this yourself.
Here is the recipe for the paleo all-purpose flour I use for almost all my baking. I make a large batch and store it in a gallon size mason jar. I make a large batch probably every week. Any of the recipes that call for paleo all-purpose flour, this is the one. I will also have it available for sale soon from my website for those that do not want to buy separate flours or do not have the time to mix it up yourself. Contact me through the website if you are interested.
- 3 c almond flour
- 2 c tapioca flour
- 1 c coconut flour
Combine all flour into a mixing bowl, mix until well combined. Transfer into a large container. Now you have grain free all-purpose flour. Bake. Eat. Enjoy.
