      And to answer the question, I’m most looking forward to relaxing with friends + family this holiday season. =) Particularly around a warm fire, with a mug of hot cocoa in hand!

    I am looking forward to time spent with family and friends. Relaxing and remembering the birth of Jesus. I don’t really have anything on my wish list other than time with friends and family and health. My favorite cookbook is the one handed down to me by my Mom which has all the favorite recipes she used to make when I was growing up. Can’t put a price on that one! One of a kind.

    I was so drawn to how these look until I saw all of that processed flour and starch. Fake food for our cells will just alter our brain chemistry, fill our cells with starch and fatten us. I’m really disappointed because as wonderful as these look they’re no safer for my family that white flour and white sugar were. If only this was made with almond flour, coconut flour, rapadura or maple. Just thought it would be fair to voice a genuine wish. Thanks for your beautiful photo and ideas though.

      Thanks Gwen for your comment & genuine wish! While my own diet consists mainly of unrefined complex carbohydrates, especially lots of vegetable and fruit, healthy fats {including olive oil, coconut oil, pastured butter, nuts and avocados}, and lean plant and animal proteins, I have no problem consuming rice flour, sorghum flour, {organic} cane sugar, and other starches on an occasional basis, as they do not affect my own body chemistry negatively {like gluten does}. I dont’ believe there is “one diet that fits all”, and thus, encourage my readers to discover their own optimal diets, that make them feel their best. I’ve also discovered that most recipes can be adapted to suit your needs, so I hope you will consider experimenting with this recipe using almond flour, maple, etc, and let me know how it works for you. Best! EA

    Love that pear dessert, that whole pan would easily be devoured by me, LOL! You know I love learning about, and making gluten free dishes…..so this book really sounds wonderful! Hope you are doing well? Sending big hugs, Terra

    I love the idea of pear in this dutch baby – would love to see Gretchen’s new cookbook!

    I love your new system for entering prizes. So easy!! I do not own a dutch over or a cast iron skillet, is that not pathetic?? I imagine why this is the most requested breakfast!! I love the rustic appeal to it. For the holidays, I am looking forward most to just chillin’ with the family. That simple. Have a super week spicy!

    I have no pride, will beg for this book. Pick me, pick me. I do worry about the flour mixture, sounds complicated (I have a low threshold for anything that appears baking-esque). Like your entry checklist, where is that widget from? OK off to follow Komquat (spelling?). I can see this pear pancake a ski house must-make.

    I won’t be baking much this holiday season since we’re moving right after Christmas. But I am looking forward to some delicious home cooked meals at friends’ and relatives’ houses!

    I have never had a Dutch baby! Although I lived in the US for 24 years I never encountered one and here in the UK, you would be met with a strange look if you asked for one, I’m sure. This looks totally delicious, EA. And I liked you answer to Gwen’s comment. I am firmly in the one size does not fit all approach to nutrition and health.
