Blogging consistently and my work schedule=do not work. Apparently.
Anyhoo, last night I participated in a craft fair to raise money for the Barebones Halloween show thingy that happens every year here in Minneapolis but that I’ve (gasp!) never made it to. I work with someone who’s fairly involved in the process, so I believe that will change this year. Since I’m not much of a crafter, I brought my zines along and baked up some treats.
Actually, I spent most of my day off baking. I ended up not bringing two things along, because I’m not a very good planner and just sort of threw most of the recipes together (save one from a cookbook) and two of them were not bake sale-worthy. But one was my tummy-worthy, so it wasn’t a total loss!
I made gluten-free chocolate chip cookies from Christy Morgan’s Blissful Bites, and from my own brain some cardamom-orange-pistachio cookies, banana tahini bread, and za’atar-spiced chickpea cracker sticks. The middle two recipes I am going to put in the next zine (someday!), and the chickpea cracker sticks I need to make a couple more times and share, because they are so tasty and easy and gluten-free! (Speaking of gluten-free baking, I haven’t forgotten about the gf version of the coconut milk scones, I just haven’t had a good day to bake them up.)
I sold some zines, sold some baked goods, and had fun times with friends who stopped by to see me. I’ve got a lot of recipe making to do in preparation for a review of Blissful Bites, but I hope I can squeeze in some other fun things before this crazy month is over!
