Gluten-free brownies...

I made these gluten-free brownies twice already.  I basically followed the recipe on the back of the bag of coconut flour, but I only had 3 eggs, not 6 as they suggested:
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
Preheat oven to 350'F.  Melt butter in saucepan and add cocoa, let cool a bit, then add beaten eggs, sugar and vanilla and coconut flour.  My batter was a bit lumpy, next time I'll mix it until smoother.  Baked in 8x8 or 9 inch round ban for 30 minutes.
We brought some to my parent's house to share and topped it with caramel ice cream.
Bokeh.  I love this effect that I found here:
My friend Joscie made a simple tutorial here:

The rest of the photos are taken with our new (used) camera that we bought from a friend.  It's a Canon DSLR and we bought a Tamron 28-300 lens that takes nice pictures close-up and had a great zoom, too.
This is the last dahlia (and a bit of basil that has flowered) from our garden, the rest were all hit by the frost this weekend.
 I love that I can choose where to focus. 
Foreground vs. background!
We now only have 2 chickens.  Pepper died. 
They are moulting now and look pathetic.
 Nutmeg's favorite place to look for bugs is under the logs.
 And they are not laying eggs...hopefully in 2 months or so they will resume, although Cinnamon is now 2 and a half and Nutmeg is 3 and a half.  They are getting old.
