Twin Flame, Must Read; This is The Key To Getting What You Want

Manifest Twin Flame UNION

All of my Transmissions are Via Unity Consciousness

There is no greater gift than my love for you

I love you

5584323_orig

The Twin Flame experience is painful. It’s gut wrenching, confusing and brings you to places that you never knew you could go. Humans outside of this experience, looking in, cannot possibly fathom what the Twin Flame phenomenon entails. They don’t understand why you just can’t get over it. Why you just can’t forget about it. Why you just can’t move on. So we say, do you think that I would be suffering like this if I had the choice? I wish I could forget. I wish I could move on. I wish that I could stop loving this person. I know it sounds pathetic. I know it sounds absurd. I know it makes no sense, but it’s beyond my control. This is the experience. It’s overtaking and powerful. It…

Charity-related twattery 2: The carrot cake disguised as a chocolate cake

boylanhotoffthepress

Continuing with my theme of how my charitable efforts are often marred by, well by me…

Today at work we hosted a coffee morning to raise money for MacMillan, the cancer charity. I volunteered to bake some cakes to bring along.

I also made a carrot cake.

Or what was intended to be a carrot cake. There were carrots in it so what else could it be?

Well, here are some of the questions I was asked:

Be Stitched Baking {Gluten-free Apple Tart}

(formerly be stitched)

A few weeks ago at the gluten and allergy free expo, I met Karen Morgan.  Karen is the spunky owner of Blackbird Bakery in Austin.  I was glad to meet a fellow Austinite at the expo!  She explained to me the differences in her professional grade flour blends, and I was sold!  This was my first attempt to use her flour blends in my baking.  They didn’t disappoint.

The instructions on the package couldn’t be easier.  Add butter and eggs.  Viola!  Pastry dough!  I tweaked the instructions a bit.  I divided the flour in half so that I would still have some in the event my tweaks were disastrous (it has definitely happened).  Instead of butter, I used organic coconut oil.

{Gluten-free Apple Tart}

Crust:

1/2 (4.5 ounces) package of Blackbird Bakery Tart & Pie Crust Flour Blend

1/2 c organic coconut oil

1 egg

Topping:

2 Jazz apples (or whatever you have…
