Our Adventures In Baking ~ Gluten-Free Banana Oatmeal Muffins

I’ve found that cutting wheat out of my diet still leaves plenty of tasty options to try, and I recently tried a recipe my wife found for me on ‘Gluten Free on a Shoestring dot com’ called ‘Banana Oatmeal Muffins’ that were excellent!

While I’ve taken on more and more of the baking process for my own treats, I’m fortunate that my wife – as the expert baker – keeps me organized and on track so the results turn out well! 🙂

These muffins are hearty and filling, and combine the two main flavors of bananas and oats.  The chocolate chips are the finishing touch that make these muffins taste like dessert ~ enjoy!

My Original Artwork-In-Progress (Update 4) ~ A Medieval Fair

This is the fourth update of my Original Artwork-In-Progress ~ A Medieval Fair (18″ x 24″), and all that’s left to finish now are the jousting knights and horses! 🙂 I’ve added in all the townspeople and villagers, finding it quite a challenge to paint such little figures ~ but at the same time the process encouraged me to explore painting portraits some time in the future.

My next update will complete this current painting, and I’m pondering what subject to explore in my next painting.  At the moment, I’m considering painting a field of wildflowers using an acrylic watercolor technique ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
