The Best Gluten-free Zucchini with Smoked Gouda Savory Scones.

Again, it is time for more scones. This time I found a generic gluten-free recipe online and I made it into both sweet and savory scones of my twisted version. They are moist inside and crunchy on crust outside.  I am quite happy with the taste and here I share with y'all. I keep the sugar in my savory scones as I don't think coconut palm sugar is that sweet  neither does it compromise the sensation of savory scones.  Here I want to credit the original recipe to Glutenfreelove (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/BEST-EVER-GLUTEN-FREE-SCONES-50121233) Thanks you for this awesome inspiration. 

A prefect Sunday Brunch Scone. 




My twisted recipe where i sub. 2 eggs with egg white only, sugar with Coconut palm sugar and milk with almond milk, butter with coconut oil. So basically, this is a lactose-free, gluten-free and casein-free scone. My friend, Isabel, suggested to sub. eggs with apple sauce for its moist so you can avoid egg as well.  I have yet to try it myself but I love my egg white in my scones so I will keep it for now. 




Zucchini with Smoked Gouda Savory Scones



ingredients: 
  1. 1 3/4 cups Gluten-Free Oat Flour/Oatmeal 
  2. scant 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  5. 1 tablespoon salt
  6. 1/4 cup coconut oil 
  7. 1/3 cup shredded smoked Gouda (or as much as you like in your scone) 
  8. 1 regular sized zucchini, cut into small stripes 
  9. 1/3 egg white/egg beater 
  10. 1/3 cup almond milk 

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a large baking sheet (or line with parchment).

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt.

The coconut oil can either be solid or melt it (microwave it until it slighted melted), cut/crumble into small bits 

Whisk together the egg white, almond milk, until frothy. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring until well blended. The dough should be cohesive and very sticky. 

Gently stir in the smoked Gouda and Zucchini into combined mixture.

Place on a gf floured surface. Pat out to about 1 in. thick (do not attempt to roll out - the dough will be too sticky for this and adding more flour will only create a dry, dense, result) .  Use large ice-cream scoop to scoop the dough or spoon to separate the dough into 6-8 balls on the pan. Gently press down in the center.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
