GLUTEN-FREE TUSCAN BREAKFAST WRAP

The alarm sounds off at 5:30am most mornings and by late September (that would be now), it’s still dark, the sun hidden – yet the moon begins to disappear. The Professor stirs first, removes his long body from the bed, hits the alarm and returns for a few minutes while […]

GLUTEN-FREE BROWN-BUTTER YEASTED WAFFLES

Waffles were a big deal at the little house on Ankeny Street; my mother had a large waffle baker that had a long black ‘fabric-type’ of cord with little gold threads running through it. She would make one very large waffle or 4 individual pieces could be torn apart and […]

GLUTEN-FREE RHUBARB TOASTER PASTRIES

Ten minutes to empty my head, empty my thoughts, pen-to-paper without stopping. No editing, no looking back – only moving forward. Wouldn’t it be great if we could live life this way? If I could live my life this way? Only moving forward, never looking back to edit, cross through, […]

MURPHIN GRANOLA & MURPHIN RIDGE INN
