Burlap & Cashmere

Just a quick little shout out to my sister and I’s new venture.  We grew up in a house that was full of creativity.  Our mother has always been extremely crafty, she started her own banner business in order to be a stay at home Mom.  She also made all of our dresses and cute outfits growing up and has made countless gifts and decorations. 

Well, Kristen and I have been crafting to decorate our respective homes as well as gifts for loved ones.

Now we have posted pictures of items that we would be more than happy to personalize and create for a gift for one of your loved ones or for a special occassion.  We are always coming up with new ideas, so check back often.  If you have a special request, feel free to ask and we will come up with a made to order treasure.

Please check Burlap & Cashmere out. 



Gluten Free Peach Cobbler… I promise this is not an imposter!

Thanks to some ladies in Mason County, Texas I am able to bring to you a scrumptious gluten free cobble recipe.

I have had this cobbler while visiting my in-laws and also at our Mason Wedding Shower.  My in-laws actually enjoy this recipe just as much, if not more than a regular cobbler.  I LOVE this cobbler a la mode, but then again have you ever known me to NOT add ice cream to my desserts or meal?

The recipe requires a mix, but the rest of the ingredients anyone should be able to easily get or might even have on hand.  This is really nice, my Mom was asking about a gluten free dessert recipe and she was happy to only have to purchase ONE additional item for this recipe, instead of a million other gluten free flours and additions like some gluten free recipes call for. YIPPEE as my Mom would say 😉

Pamela’s Gluten Free Bread Mix is rather easy to find at the grocery store in their gluten free or specialy aisle.

Gluten Free Cobbler Recipe

1 cup Pamela’s Gluten Free Bread Mix

1 cup milk, might need to add a little extra to get a spreadable consistency

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 stick butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 cups fruit of choice (we enjoy peaches)

sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar

Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top before baking.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until brown.

Be prepared for a full tummy when you make this… I guarantee you that it will satisfy your sweet tooth and leave your tummy full and happy!


Gluten Free pizza crust review

We have a WINNER!!!!

One of my co-worker’s husband suffered from a gluten allergy a little while ago.  He has overcome this and I lucked out and received the gluten free goodies that she still had in her pantry!! WOOHOO!

I have not been able to experiment in the kitchen like I would like to since we often get home pretty late from work and such.  With that being said I tend to try new recipes and ideas on the weekend.  I am happy to bring to you a Gluten Free pizza crust that is something even the hubby really enjoyed. 

The Namaste Foods, Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix turned out DELICIOUS!  It is wheat free, gluten free, dairy, corn, soy, potato, casein, AND nut free. Whew what an awesome find. AND the best part was that the bag contains enough mix for TWO different pizza crusts.  The Italian seasonings that were already included in the ingredients of this crust made it the best gluten free crust that I have ever had or made.  Typically the crust is just a plain combination of gluten free flours with zero seasonings.  I think that the seasonings are what won the hubby over also… he is a seasoning fanatic, the more the better! Plus, deep down inside I know Aaron misses the convenience of ordering a pizza for dinner when he just has the craving, maybe I can keep his cravings at bay by making this a regular occurrence for dinner!

We devoured the pizza before I took a pic, but I had mushrooms, hamburger, minced garlic, and spinach on my side.  Aaron had LOTS of mozzerella cheese, pepporoni, and mushrooms.  We both has tomato paste with italian seasonings on the crust before we added our personal toppings. 

I highly suggest trying this type of gluten free crust if you are looking for a gluten free pizza treat!
