Just leave a comment about how pink fits into your life (or not - but, then, why would you want a pink alligator scarf?) by midnight Thursday. I will announce the winner on Friday. Bon chance!

As I am trying not to eat my way out of January/February, I am trying to both hold it down on the carbs, while introducing healthier grains into my diet. This is a challenge for my weekend baking - for the barn crew, who appreciate sugar, fat and sugar. And fat. Did I mention sugar? I've tried to sneak in some gluten-free treats and some have been met with approval, while some are just not mentioned. This weekend I made some gluten-free chocolate chip cookies with low gluctose sugar (palm) and 'healthy' flours - teff, sorghum, hemp. As I mixed the sandy mass, I could tell it was not going to be good. Maybe good for you, but not good. No, not at all. Besides the sandy texture, it was held together with sunflower oil. So, now we had a sandy, oily mixture. And thanks, I am sure, to the hemp flower, there was a definite aroma of burlap. Argle. I tried a very tiny bit and, while I did not gag (maybe mentally), they were not good. I put them aside, where they cooled to the consistency of a hockey puck, and whipped up an applesauce spice cake.
