Enjoying Summer!

Hello friends,

I am just enjoying summer and not motivated or inspired to blog in the slightest at the moment :) I hope all of your summers are going splendidly and are all well!  The reason I am blogging in the first place is to post a recipe for a friend who asked for it :) So enjoy if you so desire.

Gluten-Free Naturally Sweetened Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcake

Chocolate Chip Cookies or Bars (they're also really good on their own)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted or softened
1/2 cup of honey
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups brown rice flour
2 cups of chocolate chips (I use 90% Lindt dark chocolate chopped in my food processor)

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream together honey and butter (or mix if you'd melted the butter).  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Combine dry ingredients (minus chocolate) in small bowl.  Add to butter mixture.  Fold in chocolate.  Drop onto a greased cookie sheet or spread the whole batch out on a greased 16"x10.5" jellyroll pan.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.

1lb strawberries (organic is best)

Hull and chop strawberries to desired chunkiness.

Whipped Cream
1 pint heavy whipping cream (organic and raw is best)
1 tablespoon honey (raw is best)
pinch of salt
splash of vanilla

Whip cream and rest of ingredients together until desired consistency.

Combine together in order that you like.  For instance; I like: cookies first, then strawberries, then finally cream but DH likes cookies, cream, strawberries ;)).  To each his/her own!
