Found a new blog I think you'll enjoy!

Gluten-Free on a Shoestring.  Although she's an American blogger with access to different flours than we have, she has some very interesting comparisons, breakdowns of cost per cup, and some recipes I want to try!

Take this Puff Pastry recipe.  Sure, I scrolled through it - and then went "Hmmmmmm".

Cheese Straws?! WELL! I think I'm going to give it a try when I'm finished these last few Census holdouts in a week.

OH, and she's written a cookbook… While I don't think I need *another* cookbook, I might consider it if this turns out well.

Urban Chicks! (Not in Edmonton… yet!)

One of my favourite blogs to read (when I have time) Is Steamy Kitchen by Jaden Hair.

And timely too! A blog post about Baby Chicks Arriving in the Mail! She decided to add to her flock of 5 existing hens, and she posted the CUTEST video of 2-day old chicks arriving from the post office.

I hear through a little birdie that Edmonton might be amending our bylaws in the near future to  to allow urban chickens… crossing my fingers and looking for ward to a hen husbandry class in the near future!

Go River City Chickens!
