Gluten-Free, Vegan Chai-Spiced Pancakes


I remember the first time I had homemade pancakes.  Growing up, I'd had plenty of pancakes made at home, but they always came from a box.  Just add water and eggs and voila - fluffy pancakes to stack high and then drown in maple syrup.  But the time I'm referring to is when I first had pancakes from scratch.

Ratio Rally! Gluten-Free, Vegan Teff & Black Sesame Shortbread Cookies


Welcome to another Gluten Free Ratio Rally challenge!  After sitting the last four months out, it's good to be back, especially with this particular challenge:  shortbread.  Shortbread cookies were one of my first baking successes after transitioning to a gluten-free way of living, and in fact, my most popular and most requested recipe to date is for rosemary lemon shortbread cookies.  And while I could easily have rehashed or regurgitated that recipe, what fun would that be?  

Give me baking trials, give me learning opportunities, give me inspiration to re-envision and reinvent.
