Hooray and thank you for all who participated in the Free Give-away for the Holiday Menu Planner and Just Desserts for Limited Diets recipe e-book. The winners of the give-away are: Tina, Emily, Michele S, Rebecca and Robin. Congratulations and I hope the book and planner bring a wealth of goodness to you holiday season!
As for me, I feel like I’ve ran a dessert marathon these past few weeks. I have never baked or created so many sweets in such a short amount of time. I have to say that my enthusiasm, energy and ability to get this done in time is largely due to following the GAPS diet. I have never had so much energy, been so even-minded, centered, happy, and enthusiastic for such long periods of time. Yes, and it is all because I am no longer eating grains, starches, and refined sugars (only honey). I plan to write a lengthy post about all the changes I have been experiencing on GAPS soon!
I also really have to give my mom some credit here because she helped me test/create several of the candy recipes and a cookie recipe. I was a little over-zealous with how many recipes to put in the e-book so it was so great to have her help with this project. She used to make lollipops for us when my sister and I were kids and I still have a vision of her making them over the stove with the star and heart molds.
I have to share a few of my flops while testing recipes for the Just Desserts for Limited Diets recipe book. I unfortunately didn’t take pictures of them. I cleaned out the refrigerator tonight and tossed them in the compost.
