Gluten Free Cookies & John Wayne

Hello! Last night I got to make Jesse some home made gluten free (GF) organic chocolate chip cookies accompanied by a hot cup of organic green tea. It was the most perfect addition to our night, and we loved every second of it!  First, we made some Indian food, took a stroll around the neighborhood and then came home and baked some cookies, we then put on an old western, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance! John Wayne is one of our favorite movie actors and since we have been on an old movie streak the past few month's we thought this movie would be great and it was! If you haven't seen it go and get it! 
Anyways, back to my cookies, I have this cook book called The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook by Cybele Pascal, it's super helpful if you have ANY kind of food allergy. I have a low tolerance for wheat and gluten so any cook book with yummy GF recipes is great! There are many different GF flour options out there; here's a link for some suggestions as many of the GF flour have varying flavors and taste, try them all out and use what you like best! Last night I used Bob's Red Mill GF flower, Bob's Red Mill has tons of different GF product & recipes and can be found at most health food stores even Ralphs! Here's the Bob's Red Mill Recipe for chocolate chip cookies, It's pretty good but I would definitely recommend getting the Allergen-Free hand book! In honor of Easter, here is a link for some GF candy.

Oh! I almost forgot here's a helpful hint for those who don't bake often but crave a sweet treat every now and again: if you notice in the first photo I have ball's of dough wrapped in saran wrap. so what you do is take the left over dough roll them up into individual balls & wrap each on of them up and place them in the freezer so when you have a craving take 1 or 2 out, pop them in the oven and you have a baked treat in 10 minutes!

I hope you enjoyed this quick, brief blurb from my perspective.
Love, Jesse's Girl
