I had an amazing weekend and I hope you did too. Is your Christmas shopping done? Mine sure isn’t! No, this weekend was not full of shopping as it probably should have been. This weekend I was busy in the kitchen whipping up some delicious (and healthy) gluten-free Christmas cookies, like these Meyer Lemon & Almond Biscotti.
But that’s not all I did! I also had a five hour food photography lesson with Brent Harrewyn from Hoverfly Photography (make sure to check out his amazing food portfolio, isn’t it stunning!?). Brent was gracious, patient and showed me the ins and outs of food photography. I’m excited to take what I learned and translate it into my work on the site. I’m jittery just thinking about it! What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Now, onto the cookies. As Christmas is just a little over a week away, I decided I would dedicate the next five days to cookies. A week full of cookies. Gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free quinoa cookies. Yes, that’s right. Each and every one of the recipes this week will feature quinoa. Why you may wonder? Not just because I love baking with quinoa, but also because quinoa is the greatest and it makes everything taste better.
