Gluten Free Flour and Brownie Recipe

buy motilium domperidone Gluten Free Flour 3 cups rice flour, white or brown works 1 cup potato starch, NOT flour 1/2 cup tapioca flour 1 tablespoon Xanthan gum (do not leave this out–you will have a sticky mess baking without it!) I use this in most regular cookies and quick breads, not just gluten free recipes. If it is a rather “wet” recipe, then I sometimes combine it with some oat flour to stiffen up the dough.  I hope this helps others to use their favourite old recipes in a gluten free way! It works for oatmeal, peanut butter, ginger….  you get the idea. I […]

Local farm eggs and produce for 2015 breakfasts

follow url There is a huge emphasis on local farms in Ontario and we are surrounded by farms here in Stratford. Thanks to the Beacon Herald article on local farming, we found a local free run natural egg supplier for our Stratford Bed and Breakfasts in 2015, with a few fresh harvested herbs to accompany the eggs. This year we are delighted to be serving eggs from Lynn River Farms to all B&B guests. Here is a link to their website, for the curious. http://lynnriverfarm.com/ “About Our Farm My Grandparents had a small farm just outside of Stratford where my Grandma always […]

New Year’s resolution

So, I have neglected the blog for way too long, but it is a New Year and we have many things in the works, some of which are photo worthy! First, the kitchen has had a makeover with all cabinets painted pale Victorian green and better storage added (which will allow Kelley to buy more little antique breakfast dishes). This means the house is in disarray on the first floor as they are installing today, but soon it will be a lighter, cleaner, lovely kitchen. Photos to follow later. Next, Daniel finished the side stone wall in November and I […]

Holidays at 100 Church St. Bed and Breakfast

Holidays at 100 Church St.   Holidays at 100 Church Street were filled with family, friends and snow! Painting of the downstairs is finished, as are the rooms, save for a a bit of door sanding and quarter rounds around the newly refinished wooden floors. The private washroom has been gutted and redone, including a new Italian style mini-mural on the bathtub wall. Daniel and Kelley continue to explore Stratford area restaurants and sites, as well as the delicious chef school menus during November and December.

The wooden floors are almost finished (pun intended)

Daniel and Kelley continue to breath in fumes from their lovely new floors, which causes euphoria whilst gardening and tearing out more messy vegetation and filling their huge dumpster. Happy Thanksgivings… so grateful the trash removal process is almost finished, save for bringing the yellow bathtub down to the dumpster. We very much love the house!

Daniel At Work On The Deck.. note the guy in orange high up in our tree pruning away!!!! Kelley and Daniel closed on 100 Church St. B&B on October 1st at 1 p.m. and made their future first floor study their home away from home for the construction, cleaning and painting months of October and November.

Daniel and Kelley love it here in Stratford with the sun shining and fall easing gently into Ontario The house is reeling from their “TLC!” In his first 36 hours, Daniel […]
