I’ve been getting a lot of recipes!
Thank you for those! I’ll be sorting through them for the next few weeks.
Here’s one that sounds like a never-fail, using pantry ingredients only. For the gluten free crowd, I would swap out the flour for all purpose GF flour and add some Xanthan gum.
Recipe from Dina — thank you, Dina!

Although we have a gluten free chocolate cake recipe we have been using for years that is delicious. If you’d like our version, let me know and I’ll pass that on, too.
Because I’m limiting the fresh food I’m using for recipes (it’s been three weeks since we shopped), I’m also having to use a great many new recipes. Some have been total disasters. Some have been surprising successes.
But I find I’m yearning for fresh salad!
So far, none of my immediately family have contracted CoVid19. We’re all very carefully self-isolating, although I think I might have to start going out for a walk each day. I never thought that I, a classic introvert, would long to get out of the house!!
I hope you and yours are well and not going too insane with the stir-crazies.
Although it is pure coincidence, I may have a distraction for you. A whole boxed set, brand new, and at a massive discount.
Once and Future Hearts Box One returns to full price on April 30!
