Do you watch competition shows? Baking and cooking shows. I can’t stand them. That’s why I watch them. When I saw the advertisement for Beat Bobby Flay, I couldn’t wait to tune in. Sadly, it didn’t involve a baseball bat so I changed the channel. I recently just finished Blown Away on Netflix. It’s a competition show with glass blowing artists. I love glass art and have enough vases in my house that my funeral is going to be awesome. Glass is so beautiful and to be able to work with it is no easy task. I had the opportunity to work with a glass artists and let me tell you. Glass work is no joke. What I hate about these competition shows is that they ask you to make something from your creative perspective and then they critique you on it. I don’t understand this. “I like what you did here Alex. I just wish you would have used a different color or done a different shape.” Get the fuck outta here. It’s like asking …

Bullying is horrible let’s get that out of the way. They’re just kids. They don’t realize the harsh realities of life yet so we want to protect them. Understandable.
This bread came from a goof. Not really a goof but more of a, I bought the wrong product, didn’t know what to do with it, refuse to throw it away, read the ingredients and said, “I could make this like a nice almond bread.”
I’ve learned that life is damned if you do, damned if you don’t. There’s no way around it. I’ve tried. I’ve failed each time. With that said, I say “Do”!
Generally I don’t think or work in a gluten free mindset. Not my forte. However, when I was asked by my dear friend to work on gluten free waffles. Impossible to say no.
