Edwardian Tailored Wool Skirt & Linen Shirtwaist

Edwardian Tailored Skirt And Linen Shirtwaist

That’s my other Edwardian shirtwaist costume. It’s a late Edwardian outfit with tailored plaid wool skirt and apricot-colored linen blouse with crochet lace.

This method is called tailoring, and includes moderate styles with straight lines and perfect curves and an exactness that is not necessary when draping or constructing gowns for fancy effects.’ (Text-Book On Domestic Art, 1911) Continue reading Edwardian Tailored Wool Skirt & Linen Shirtwaist

Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies – Gluten-Free

Light, crispy and so delicious – these oat flour chocolate chip cookies are naturally gluten-free!

Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies - Gluten-Free

Unlike my soft and chewy naturally green sunflower seed chocolate chip cookies, these oat flour chocolate chip cookies are cripsy and light. The chocolate chip cookies are made with oat flour so they’re naturally gluten-free.

If you don’t have oat flour at home, you can easily make homemade oat flour: either grind oat grains in a grain mill or blend rolled oats in a food processor. I always use chopped baking chocolate for my chocolate chip cookies because it’s dairy-free and cheap but feel free to use chocolate chips instead.

These homemade candied cherries are quick and easy to make – and they taste much better than the store-bought kind! The candied cherries are made with fresh cherries, not canned cherries or maraschino cherries.

Homemade Candied Cherries

I love candied cherries – but the store-bought ones have such an unnatural color and doesn’t taste like cherry at all! After making candied lemon and orange peel and candied orange slices I thought I’d give homemade candied cherries a try.

And they turned out delicious and I never would’ve thought that candied cherries can be made so quickly and easily at home! All you need for these homemade cherries is pitted cherries, sugar and water. Some candied cherry recipes say to let the cherries soak for up to 14 days in simple syrup but this recipe is quicker: the candied cherries can be done in 1 hour!
