Homemade Vanilla Extract

 Last year I found these bottles with instructions to make my own vanilla. Oh, once you make your own vanilla you won't want to go back to store bought vanilla. My baked goods taste so much better. I couldn't believe it.
 Here are the instructions, right on the bottle.

All you need is a glass bottle or a mason jar, 3 vanilla beans (at your local health food store) and vodka. That's it. You will save yourself so much money and really love the taste in your baked goods. 

 This bottle on the right I made four months ago. Try it you will love it.

Homemade Peach Cobbler Wheat/Gluten Free

 Oh my goodness! This is so easy,  but oh soooo delicious.
 Just out of the oven.
 My family loved it and had seconds.
1/2 cup coconut oil or butter ( I used coconut oil)
3/4 cup any type of milk (I used coconut milk)
1 cup cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour (I used spelt flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
5 peaches skinned and thinly sliced (you can use canned peaches, just drain)

Place the cut up fruit in a baking pan. Mix all your ingredients in a bowl, and pour over the cut up fruit. Bake in the oven at 350 for 1 hour. DONE

You can serve it with ice cream if you like  ;)

Wheat Free Whole Speltflour Bread

 After many, many failed attempts to make a wheat/gluten free loaf of bread, I finally did it! Hurray!! Here you see my two loafs rising in the oven. Looking pretty good so far.
 This is how much they rose and now it's time to bake them. This is a 100% organic spelt flour loaf of bread I cannot tell you how excited I was when I saw how much they rose. No one was allowed in my kitchen during the bread-making process :) I did not want to take the chance of someone bumping my stove.
 Fresh out of the oven. It looks beautiful. My husband could not wait to taste it.
 Well he had the first slice while it was still hot and loved it. We all had a taste and there wasn't a dissatisfied customer in the house. 
 Best of all,  my wheat and gluten allergy husband had absolutely no problems eating this bread. Thank you, Lord.
 Here is the recipe:

4 to 41/2 cups spelt flour ( I used organic)
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast

3/4 cup water
5/8 cup milk any kind ( I used water )
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons honey

Sift your 4 to 4 1/2 cups of  flour with the sea salt. I used a bread machine, but you can do this by hand if you like.
Place all your wet ingredients (water, milk, oil, honey) in your bread machine bread pan. Add the flour with the salt on top. With your finger make a little dent in the flour and add the yeast. Let your machine knead this dough for exactly 8 minutes. Turn off the machine and let your dough sit in your bread pan, in your machine for 45 minutes.
Take your dough out of the bread pan unto a lightly floured surface, knead and shape your dough for only 30 seconds and place into a greased bread pan. Cover with a thin cloth napkin and let rise for 50 minutes. I let my breads rise in the oven so that I just have to remove the napkins and turn on the oven. The less you have to move your bread pans the better your dough will rise. Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes.

 Don't over knead your dough it will become sticky and gooey. When this happens just add a little more flour to your dough knead it a couple more times and then let it rise.

New Round Pillows

 When I went to JoAnns fabric store to buy some yarn for my new project,  I saw this beautiful fabric. I thought it would be perfect for the two round neck pillows I recently purchased at a thrift store.

 I added the polka dotted fabric with some white rick rack to give it a little style. 

 Sooo Cute.  I think these pillows would look great on a white wicker chair.

 This is what the pillows looked like before. Just plain....

The strings were easy to make just fold and sew  :)
