Gluten Free Graham Crackers

For the past two, or more realistically, three hours, I’ve been sitting here trying to write this blog post. Typically, I’m not a huge procrastinator, and can at least form a string of words together on this site, call it a blog post and move on. Today, not so much.

Music is my distraction today. Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Chris Cornell have been on repeat all weekend on my radio, phone and in my head. One of the many unfortunate parts of growing older is seeing your heroes die. Even though you don’t know them nor even met them, it feels like a part of you died along with them. And knowing they’ll no longer be in the world creating more art that has always been a beautiful distraction for you, from your own life, problems, worries, etc. is really the hardest pill to swallow.

Being human is as confusing as it is difficult most days, and if you find something special in life, like music that you can get lost in, shut off your brain and close out the world for those 3 minutes, you want to try to hang on for that feeling forever.

That may be a selfish mindset, and is definitely a very common one, but instead of focusing on the tragic outcome and thinking what more there could have been, I’m just gonna sit back and be grateful for what already exists and play the shit out of Badmotorfinger. <3

Gluten Free Graham Crackers

Moving on, how about some gluten free graham crackers to get your week going? These crackers are so soft and incredibly delicious. I’ve even overcooked them once, leaving them with crispy edges, and they still rocked. I may have even preferred them that way. So, if you want them a little firmer, leave them in the oven a few minutes longer.

These graham crackers are perfect on their own, but if you want to slather some almond butter on them and inhale them, I won’t argue with you one bit. Also, s’mores, hello?

  1. Sad days indeed…I’ve been a bit emotional these days and thinking about the past, the future and the times we are living through. I’m thankful that we have our food blogs and our kitchen moments to occupy our minds.

    Truth be told I’ve never made graham crackers but looking at yours make me want to run to the kitchen and start cooking, too bad it’s past midnight and I ran out of arrowroot flour. :-p

  2. It’s definitely nice to have a way to distract your mind. I know my thoughts can sometimes get out of hand when I’m left idle. Hopefully you try making some graham crackers someday! I think they’d be fun using cookie cutters too.
