Good News!

So as you may have noticed I have been baking alot and sharing my recipes with you. You also may have noticed that I haven't been posting too much recipes anymore, well there's obviously a reason for that and that reason is that I've decided I wanted to try to write a gluten-free cookbook, all about gluten-free sweets, I already have lot's of recipes. This means that I won't be posting too much recipes any more because I can't just give away them if I'm writing a cookbook. I hope to try to have the cookbook done sometime next year, I'm thinking maybe around late March. (coincedentally near my birthday!). I also have more good news, some of my friends and I at school started baking together and we also started making little cooking shows, our first one, about strawberry macarons we just put up on Youtube, here's the link to it:  Keep on baking!

So I've finally got myself to make Macarons not Macaroons the one with coconut but the parisian ones, I made it from the book Gluten-Free Bible, The recipe was very good and made very tasty Macarons, except for there was one thing that confused me, in the Raspberry Macarons recipe, where I think the second step, it said add cocoa powder but in the ingredients list there was no cocoa powder, I just skipped the cocoa powder, Guessing that it was an accident, but other than that this is the BEST recipe I absolutely love Macarons, my favorite is the Raspberry macarons, or maybe the almond, they're both good. the recipe may seem hard from all the steps but was much easier than I thought, except for when baking them to make sure they didn't crack that was a little too hard, but as I always say I'll definitely be making these again!

Here's a recipe for some cookies which weren't the best but were still good. Just to tell you before you make these, If you don't like peanut butter, than this is not for you, if you love peanut butter this is definatly for you. Anyway here's the recipe:

Maninis oat bread

I recently said that I would bake the Maninis bread I finally got around to get the yeast and make it. It was fun to make and was pretty easy except for the fact that it takes along time because you have to wait about an hour for the bread to rise. I made this and then me and my family ate all of it that first day and so I made it again the next day, the next day my dad had the idea of me putting butter on top of the bread to give it a good tasting glaze. I did this and it came out great. The Maninis mix I like a lot because first one bag makes 8 loaves so you don't have to buy it again every time you make it.The taste is very good I love the taste of the oats, it has a good texture for gluten-free bread and wasn't very complicated, I think this recipe is great, I will definitely be making this bread a lot.
