My blogging friend Erin asked me to make a sling for her, and I had a lot of fun at the fabric store looking for just the right fabric :) There was a big sale on, due to our local festival being this weekend. I hope Erin will love this sling! Hopefully we'll be able to meet up next week and I can pass it on to her then. I love how it's feminine while being boyish enough for her little man.
I finished the sling this morning, and I think I'm definitely getting better at sewing! Making slings is fairly easy, but pleating the shoulder was pretty tricky at first. I think I've got a pretty good system down now.
Yesterday I finished off my box of Allergen-free cookies, and I thought I'd try and make something that I could eat when I get a craving for something sweet. Anyone who is new to gluten-free baking will know that it is not easy! The flours are so different, and some of them can make your baking taste gritty.
I'm pretty impressed with the brownies I came up with. I used a recipe from Recipe Zaar as a guide, but altered it to suit what flours I had. I also can't have eggs, so I used an egg replacer. While I wouldn't say these are the best brownies I've ever had, they sure do hit the spot :)
Here's the recipe. I would post a picture, but I have them all wrapped up in the freezer already.
1/2 cup Sorghum Flour
3/4 cup Flour Mix
1 cup Sugar
6 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/3 cup Canola Oil
Egg Replacer, equivalent to one egg
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
Mix all together til there are no lumps. Pour into a greased 9" square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes. Make sure you don't over-bake. These turn out really gooey, but not chewy.
