My unplanned hiatus has resulted from a combination of the following - deciding to be social again, falling ill, and never wearing interesting clothes or brushing my hair. I haven't really baked or worn make-up either - I find both of them to be distasteful pastimes in the summer, because of the extra heat. I do have one recipe to share, which I keep making because it's so nice to munch on! No photos, but oat-y biscuits all look the same...? Everyone eats my food before I can take pictures of it. ;/
In other news, I'm hopefully going to be accepted back into high school for a year - I still have one year left to stay in my small town before I can start applying for colleges (I've already finished two year long courses...) I feel like spending that time productively getting far better grades than I left school with. I finished school when I was 16, so I'll probably be less naive, lazy and frippery now... maybe! ;D I have a meeting there on Wednesday, so I hope it will go well. I can't believe I might be wearing a uniform again soon... uhr!

'OAT' COOKIES (GLUTEN FREE)
  • 1 cup of butter (can substitute sunflower/soy butter - I use sunflower)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of gluten-free flour (rice, tritamyl, potato, et cetera - I like making a mix of the three)
  • 3 cups of millet flakes (substitute for oats - if you're just wheat intolerant, use real oats)
  • 2 egg yolks
Preheat the oven to 175 celcius. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, then add the eggs yolks, and fold in the flour and millet flakes. Make as big or as small cookies as you like - smaller will obviously take less time to cook, and be more crunchy. The bigger the cookie, the chewier the middle - so whichever is your favourite, do! You can also lay the batter out in one big sheet, and then slice it into squares when done. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
(These can also be made savoury - substitute the sugar for cheese, and use 3/4 of a cup of butter, and add herbs of your choice that complement the cheese. If you want to use less sugar, add some raisins/cranberries/blueberries/applesauce... It's a pretty basic recipe that is very easy to elaborate on.)
