I'm sharing the dark chocolate muffins I made this morning for breakfast.
Coconut oil instead of butter, a few bittersweet chocolate chips, almond flour and cocoa powder instead of wheat, and they're actually good.
Wink Now and then Saturdays are splurge days.

Hi, mntn13! Do you ever use Pamela's Bake mixes? They are gluten free and delicious. I buy it by the case on Amazon, especially the pancake mix. It can be used to make coffee cake, pancakes of course, and things like banana bread and scones.

Very Happy Hi I've not used them, though seen the already made cookies & such at the store. Does the mix have a not too sweet taste?
It'd be good to have a convenient mix. Often I'm tempted by goodies made with wheat but it really upsets my system.

No, the mix is not too sweet. When we make pancakes with it, it is the perfect amount of sweetness. For preparing other things with it, you must add sugar or honey. We like sucanat instead of white sugar. And I get tempted by goodies made of wheat too, and usually hate how I feel after consuming them. This mix makes awesome cookies, too. She has a website with all sorts of recipes and it tells which mix to buy for making them.

Idea Cool, I'll check that out. Thanks. Wish I had known a long time ago that wheat was the culprit for my 'dis-comfort'.

I'm feeling really bummed out right now. Our nice new neighborhood is showing its seamier side. There is awful loud music playing about one block away, accompanied by loud drunken laughter. I want to go to bed but the bassy notes will come right through my pillow. Worse, since this is considered a rural area, even though we called a noise complaint in we have no idea how long it will take before the sheriff comes. We really tried to assess the area before moving here, by visiting on different nights of the week and just listening to the various sounds of the neighborhood. We even asked a neighbor if there was ever loud music. She said that this one household did play it sometimes, but not often. But this makes the second weekend in a row that we have had to call in a noise complaint. It wouldn't be so bad if we hadn't bought the house. But now we are stuck here, I guess. Sad

Oh hartzofspace that is a tough one. Would send me into a sad/mad/horns-of-dilemna/misery loop. Sure hope it doesn't re-occur much at all. And the sherriff responds appropriately and soon.
Idea batman I'd send him after those neighbors if I could.

If the sheriff's department is not forthcoming, sonic warfare might be in order.

Back in the '80s, my first wife and I lived in a small unit in base housing at Offutt AFB. The couple next to us used to play loud music, usually rap, late at night. We tried calling the base police, but one of the couple had a friend at the HQ, so he'd get a warning before the cops showed up; by the time they arrived, the music would be turned down. Shortly after they left, back up it'd go.

Finally, one night, I turned my stereo speakers to the wall, turned the volume up a bit, and put on my recording of Chopin's Polonaises. It only took two or three repetitions for the message to get through; he stopped playing his rap at high volume after 10pm.

From http://medicalxpress.com/news/2012-05-nasal-hormone-autism.html:
Quote:
Children with autism given a squirt of a nasal spray containing the hormone oxytocin showed more activity in brain regions known to be involved with processing social information, a small study found

So if I meet someone I would like to bond with, should I whip out an asthma inhaler filled with oxytocin and give myself a good squirt? Or, following the traditions of the Cafe, should I find out whether the stuff also works by ingestion, and survives baking?

The data and conclusions of research presented at medical meetings should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

And possibly for a while longer, until they've been replicated.

Gromit, Gromit, poor gromit......


Did we learn nothing?

I do know that no one really likes to go hitting links, and links that switch us from one site to another, while trying to read what these words would seem to lead to and thyously indicate ARE of Utermost importance!! So, having said this, a link, which is a repeatance of much muffintude or wise in the sense of don't stick a muffin up your nose, very often. Anyways, da link (probably with ads of how to remove muffins from parts your Momma didn't ever talk about while Grandma was in the house...) and don't do it, unless, you can figure out how to do it right and no one knows what right is, yet, and if they say they do, send them to me and I will fix it, and them.

---- flowery music---(da link)---> my armpit <------ other wise known as...we still can't dance and Zappa, always, dared you too try Smile

No where, does it say in the Kama Sutra or any other book of bipedal cohabtitation, or other legged for that matter, unless you're a damn squrriel.... do you ever mess with the stuffs UPS your nose, unless and I repeatage, unless it is....vintage, and then only vintage, dried muffin...... remnants. It will survive baking, probably nothing else will, however.
