I hope everyone had an incredible Easter! We had beautiful weather here in Washington that motivated Steven and I to get outside and do some yard work! I know, that doesn't sound very exciting, but I think when you're a homeowner it's actually quite a satisfying way to spend your afternoon. (Although I did get a blister on my pinky from raking...boo-hoo.)
And while weeding I noticed this one lonesome, little flower. The first to bloom in our yard this Spring! I loved it.
And made Huckleberry take a photo with it of course. (Because that's what crazy dog ladies do.) This picture of him cracks me up...
Other than the yard, this weekend I spent a lot of time in the kitchen being inspired by this new cookbook (and stuffing my face). Not only are all the recipes in here gluten-free, but they are also dairy-free (and delicious!). I decided to make the lemon bars to bring to Easter dinner at my in-laws on Sunday and some classic drop biscuits for Steven to enjoy with his breakfast. He misses his bread in the mornings.
Both recipes were a huge success! They taste just as fat and sugar infused as your average lemon bar or biscuit, but they're not! I love being able to have a healthy version of sweet treats and comfort food without having to sacrifice the flavor. :)
