Biscuits & Sun-dried Tomatoes

Buckwheat Bread
2 c buckwheat groats (soaked and dehydrated)
1 c golden flax seed (or chia seed)
1 c psyllium husks
1 t Celtic Sea salt
2 c water
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c Irish moss gel
1 T honey

Grind all dry ingredients into flour. Blend all wet ingredients. In a large food processor, process wet ingredients into dry ingredients until dough. Use buckwheat flour to dust counter and rolling pin, and roll out dough to 1/3″ thinckness. Cut and dehydrate between 105-110 F for 6 hours.

I am such a huge fan of buckwheat! It has a strong flavor, so not everyone is as enthusiastic about it, but the little plant is so full of nutrition that I haven’t found something quite as satisfying. After sprouting, dehydrating, and making flour, buckwheat can be used to make anything where you would use regular flour. These biscuits are perfect for any bread substitute.

For this post I topped the biscuits with a slice of avocado and a pinch of Celtic Sea salt or a simple sun-dried tomato spread of sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, and Celtic Sea salt. Enjoy!

Coffee Dyed Linen Scarf [ giveaway] closed

I had a mass amount of linen fabric to make a scarf but then ended up with two, so I’m giving the second one away! It is 100% linen, hand frayed, and hand double dip dyed in organic coffee. It may even have a lingering coffee aroma :)

“God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience.
I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will…
a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notion of what He is up to.”

-Elisabeth Elliot

In exactly one week I turn that age. 25. I’m not where I thought I’d be, but I’m glad for where I am. The past year was the worst most wonderful year, and as I look back it’s hard to believe everything happened in only 365 days. I was broken and persevered, and as Mr. Charles Spurgeon said, “I have learned to kiss the wave that throws me against the Rock of Ages.” I wouldn’t trade that for the world. Here are some wonderful things I learned or experienced in 2012:

» Forgiveness is essential, but it takes time.
» I am blessed and so grateful to call some of the dearest people friends.
» My biggest fears are of what I want the most, so I need to be myself and not fear man.
» WWOOFing was an incredible experience, but I now know I’m not cut out to be a farmer :)
» Guys and girls can’t be “just” friends. Haven’t you seen When Harry Met Sally?! *
» Classes started today, but I didn’t have to go. I can get used to this whole college graduate thing!

*No need to watch if you haven’t :)

Recipe time! These little bowls are equally refreshing as they are creamy. Citrus season is in full swing, so grapefruit, lemon, mandarine orange, and clementine would all be delicious!
