several months ago i discovered that my body doesn't tolerate wheat very well (i'm okay with gluten, just not the wheat), and i must admit that i was pretty bummed out at first........okay, it was an all-out pity party.......but then again, what's a party without all of my favorite party fare like cinnamon rolls, an assortment of gooey, crusty panini, and cookies, cookies, cookies?! so i've been on the hunt for decent tasting treats, and while i found some wheat-free delights at the grocery store, i'm not crazy with how overly sweet all of the rice-flour-gluten-free products taste (can't believe i just said that). i've been reading a lot of great things about almond flour, so i ordered some......and if proof is in the bag alone, i'm definitely on to something......this is pure almond happiness!!
and combined with this cookbook, i should be back in pastry paradise in no time (i'm thinking that chocolate cake with the mile-high frosting will be a great place to start, don't you?!)!
