Good recipes to share with friends.
I’m experimenting a bit more with gluten-free these days. I know a few people with intolerances now, and like many people with allergies and food restrictions, potlucks are their worst enemy. Not that one potluck guest can change their experience, but I can try.
I should mention that if you’re not worried about gluten, substitute the quinoa flour for ¾ cups all-purpose flour and ¾ cups quinoa flour (in fact, using 100% all-purpose flour works too. I’ve tried it).
To celebrate “rock the boatmeal cookies” I wanted to find some boat music. There are so many options for music to go with boats. There are the bands Boats and Yacht (both from Canada). Aaliyah even has a song called “Rock The Boat” and there are dozens of other songs in this nautical nature. When I started this blog, I made complete playlists to accompany my readers through the baking process and for this one time only, I’m doing it again.
Living in a landlocked city, I don’t indulge in too many boat trips, but I do like them when I can get them. I’ve always loved canoes. I think it has something to do with being Canadian and reading Pierre Burton.
If you take the expression “don’t rock the boat” literally, you really don’t want to rock a canoe. They’re the ones that tip extremely easily. I’ve been on ferries, steamboats, powerboats and even rinky dink rubber rafts. Canoes are the only boats I’ve ever been worried about tipping over.
