Summer Recipes in Review

Although the heat is not letting up here, I thought the last day of August was perfect for a “summer in review” post.  Good thing peach season starts late in Colorado.  It makes the summer seem just that much longer. 

1] Lemon Blueberry Breakfast Cakes – I created this recipe when my mom was in town.  It was the first time I combined oat flour, sweet rice flour + coconut flour, and definitely not my last.  Making that flour combination, was one of the best decisions I made all summer!

2] Can’t forget about my Perfectly Cooked Millet recipe.  It’s nothing snazzy, but works every time!  This also kicked off my Recipes For Mom series.  *You can cook quinoa the exact same way, but cooking for 15min instead of 20min.

3]  Did you somehow forget about, or forget to make my Beer Soaked Fries?  How could you!!?  Sweet taters more your thing?  I made a version with those, too!
