Hi everyone. Even if we do not feel comfortable baking, we can still help Haiti’s Edeyo school that was destroyed in the Earthquake by purchasing baked goods at the concert and bakesale tomorrow night. See above posters for the details.

Here is a Gluten Free recipe I have been making lately that is so tasty!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Cookies:

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ cup honey or agave
1/2 cup chopped dried cherries or cranberries
1 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped chocolate from a chocolate bar

Mix dry and wet ingredients until thoroughly combined
Spoon out TBS size balls of dough on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet
Bake at 350° for about 7 to 10 minutes
Cool and serve
Makes 24 cookies
