Checking out another gluten-free blogger is always a fun assignment. Learning their writing style, checking out their food photography, reading their stories and test driving some new recipes is great inspiration. So it was with great relish that I spent time prowling around Until the Thin Lady Sings, a gluten-free, low-carb and chemical-free blog written by Rachel Cobb, a self-described foodie opera singer. I decided to adopt this wonderful blogger for the Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger event founded by the Book of Yum and hosted this month by Enjoying Gluten-Free Life.
Cobb is a wonderfully vivacious writer and she provides a lot of information about healthy foods, from bone broth to low carbohydrate baking, with plenty of recipes and kitchen tips on the side. I love the energy in her writing and her "evangelism" in giving readers the inspiration to try out new ingredients and cooking techniques.
For my adoption, the first thing I made was a batch of her terribly addictive Coconut Flour Cheese Biscuits. These were so moist and they filled the house with a tremendously inviting savory smell as they were baking. They were very easy to make too, so I have gotten this recipe in my permanent rotation.
I also tried out some of the Thin Lady's Blueberry Lemon Bars with Stevia. They weren't quite sweet enough (I use the stevia I had at home, which was in packets, so perhaps I undermeasured), so we added a little pure maple syrup drizzle to each serving and these were then quite heavenly with a lovely almond flour crust. The blueberries are soft and pop in your mouth.
I recommend the Cobb's blog to anyone who is looking for healthy, low-carbohydrate and gluten-free recipes and food posts. She is particularly fond of baking sweet, though sugar-free treats, and I intend to explore more of these as I work my way through more of her recipes.
