It is so funny, when I first started the gluten free thing all I could think was OMG I'M GOING TO DIE! Luckily I had a great support system and have been able to enjoy life just as much as I did before. My first venture was a Gluten Free New York Cheesecake. My birthday was at the beginning of the month and going Gluten Free meant no more Walmart Bakery cakes! Soooo.....I turned to my next favorite sweet treat and turned to my great friend over at My Side of Life. She had just posted the recipe for this Cheesecake so I jumped in and hoped for the best. I had never made a Cheesecake at all! Now I was going to make it Gluten Free?!? Luckily it turned out GREAT! If you are interested in the recipe please head HERE. The only thing I changed was I used Chocolate Gluten Free Cookies and ground them up for the crust.
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
