going crackers...gluten-free crackers!

(new vases by Gary Rith)

Goofy Kim writes me:  "you should bake these gluten-free hummus crackers I saw on reddit!" and although she is CORRECT, the recipe looks a bit more complicated than I am in the mood for, so I find a simpler one.
Basically, you take chickpea flour, a little water and spice, and bake it into a gluten-free cracker, dang its tasty!
And since the oven was hot, I made some gluten-free apricot-walnut-cinnamon scones too.....

It is obvious that you need to make food so you can eat, but do any of you find that baking settles your head?  I needed to get a lot of work done in the studio but had been in there all morning and needed to do something different for awhile....and baking for an hour really does relax the mind.  Like yoga!
Think of what society has lost, because so few people work with their hands or prepare their own food from scratch which is SO creative and satisfying....

Sometimes I need a diversion and I do find cooking a satisfying one... except for the clean up!

Barbara Rogers said...

Well you've definitely got a good philosophy there! However, I can bake any time but hate the clean up, so I avoid it a lot. With pottery, it doesn't matter so much.

I need #1 - a day off and #2 gluten free scones STAT!

I don't bake a lot, but I cook dinner from scratch almost every night. I find it rewarding. And I enjoy eating it!
