Gluten Free Guava Bars

I love me some guava. It makes me feel tropical. So I guess you can say that eating these guava bars is like a mini vacay?

Okay .. maybe that is  a stretch, but they certainly are delicious.

In South Florida, mainly Miami, guava is everywhere. Go to Versailles and order the pastries and you will know what I am talking about.

Seriously though.

My version of guava bars are a far cry from any of those guava pastelitos at Versailles but they are a fabulous gluten-free alternative thanks to Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free all purpose flour. The bars made their first debut on a very good friend of mine’s blog, better known by the internet world as The South Florida Sage.

The South Florida Sage {SoFlaSage} was kind enough to allow me to write my very first post as a guest on her blog, which allowed me to work up enough guts to begin Sundays with Sarah.

These guava babies are on her page .. check it out here and enjoy!

Banana Scones

I am very new to this whole blogging thing, and likewise, horrible with technology. I must have deleted my about me section about five times before I realized I was simply not clicking the update button.

At any rate, here we are at my very first post!

I was feeling adventurous and decided to try my hand at making scones. Not only did I make scones, but also gluten-free cheesecake cupcakes, …to be posted on another Sunday.

Yep, I was living on the edge.

The scones were an adaption from one of my favorite blogs ever… How Sweet It Is and as always, I changed I few things. I made mine with a lemon juice and sugar icing, which if you are not a big lemon fan then feel free to do without. These babies are delicious all on their own.

End result… big hit! Try them out and see for yourself.
