Gluten-Free Corn Bread

Gluten-Free Corn Bread 3

Has your weather been crazy like ours in Southern Ontario?! So far this spring it goes like this; morning the sun is shining, birds tweeting and the flower buds are just popping out. Mid day the skies suddenly turn an ominous grey, the wind picks up and ice pellets pound to the ground. Old man winter, you need some beauty sleep - off with you to hibernate!

Gluten-Free Corn Bread

Days like that call for comfort food! Much thanks to my daughter's boyfriend for finding this corn bread recipe! I have not enjoyed corn bread for many years. With 3 out of 4 in our family gluten-free, corn bread is a welcome addition to my recipe box. It is a great side dish to team up with chili on a cold day.

Kodee would like to take this moment to remind everyone this recipe is "dog ingredient" friendly. Plus she says to remember, nothing beats a mid day nap  after a hearty meal with your favourite person by your side.

A little bath time fun! Becky is such a poser - she sat in this tub for over 30 min and didn't move! She just loves posing with props. So odd! The bubbles amused her.


"Hey! Rubber Duckie, you'd make bath time lots of fun if you'd quit falling out of the tub dude."

I had this idea floating (pun so intended) in my head for a while. It will be my January photo for my series "Studio 12 Cav". I started in October doing a monthly flash photo and hope to have a a set of 12 photos ready to print in a calendar by next Christmas for family gifts - could be the year after that though, I'm known to procrastinate A LOT! Good thing my family never visits my blog ;)

I belong to a fun FlickR Group called the "Daily Dog Challenge". Each day they provide a prompt to help us create fun photos. You don't have to participate daily - just join the fun or stop by for a visit when you can!

Birds of Different Feathers Flock Together

Adorning our small, front lawn is a huge Manitoba Maple - yes I know a very large tree to be on a small city lot! I'll explain how that came to be in a moment.

A few weeks ago, when we pulled into our driveway we noticed our tree was swarming with an unusual variety of birds.


There were a few Cedar Waxwings which are a small grey-brown little hooded bird with red wing and yellow tail tips. They are one of a small variety of birds that can survive on fruit alone. You can tell these are adult birds because they have a black mask.


Our tree also had two bright red male Cardinals and a lone Downy Woodpecker.


Now the Robin is a common bird, but it did seem odd to find a dozen or so hanging out with these other birds on cold March day my front lawn - all in my Manitoba Maple.

So about this tree. How does a tree this size wind up on a small city lot?  Lets go back 22 years and blame my Dad!

While visiting my parents at their farm, my daughter found a small seedling. Dad decided it would be a good idea to show her how to dig it up, and plant it in a small margarine container so she would bring it home. Don't worry he told me, it will never live.

Lauren Tree (5 of 5)

It thrived and still is 22 years later! For the first few years she refused to let me cut her beloved tree down. Now that she is grown and has long since moved out, I do not have the heart to get rid of this monster tree! Well that and the fact it would cost a fortune to have it removed ;)
