Knit Leg Warmers

I recently ordered some new sock knitting needles off of Etsy. I've never really knitted with sock needles so I decided to start off with simple leg warmers to get used to them. Here's how they are coming.

Flourless Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Yesterday I made these addicting banana peanut butter muffins. They have the same texture as normal muffins - just without the flour! These muffins are totally gluten-free and extremely yummy. You can find the recipe here: Recipe

This morning, I enjoyed one of these muffins with a cup of coffee!

Snow White

I've always been told that if I was a disney princess, I would be Snow White due to my super pale skin, dark brown/black hair, and ability to sing.

Slouchy Hats

After attempting to get some nice pictures of my new knitted items, I took one look at the end result and was utterly disappointed. I hate indoor lighting. Anyways, the pictures I took of the slouchy hats turned out the best. Here are a few of the slouchy hats that will be for sale!

Fall Preparations

Can you believe that it's almost fall? I've been working hard all summer and looking forward to fall so much. I've scheduled my first photo-shoot of the year and items will be for sale again soon. Here's a sneak peak at some of the new items. I hope you love lace.

Lace and Flowers

Here's an outfit that includes two of my favorite things: cream colored lace and floral patterns.

Crop Knit Shirt

When I mess up a knitting project, I always attempt to resurrect it and turn it into something else. This was meant to be a tank top but halfway through was turned into this crop knit shirt.

Vanilla Coconut Crepes

This morning I made myself a gluten-free vanilla coconut crepe with greek yogurt and nectarines. And guess how long it took me to make this scrumptious breakfast for myself? Only 5 minutes! Originally, I found this recipe for a flaxseed wrap here: Wheat Belly: Flaxseed Wrap. I made this wrap for lunch and it turned out delicious (you should try it!). After thinking, I decided that it would make an amazing crepe.

Here’s how I did it:

Vanilla Coconut Crepes 

3 Tablespoons ground flaxseeds
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (you can add a little more if you want more vanilla flavor)
1/2 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
1 Tablespoon water
1 large egg
Pinch of salt

1) Mix all the ingredients together until smoothly blended.
2) Grease a microwave-safe pie pan with butter or coconut oil
3) Pour batter into pie pan and spread evenly
4) Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes until cooked
5) Let crepe cool for a minute or 2

Crepe Filling

This is where you can get creative!

1) Spoon a yogurt or whipped cream of choice onto crepe (I used creamy plain greek yogurt)
2) Chop up one fresh nectarine (or any other fresh fruit of choice!) and place onto the crepe
3) Finish off the crepe with a drizzle of syrup or honey (I used honey)

See how easy that was? Once you get the hang of making them you can whip 'em up in no time! This is a perfect breakfast for when you want something filling and healthy but have limited time. You could even make this sugar free by adding honey or syrup in place of the sugar.
