recipe: gf cinnamon roll biscuit skillet cake (with coconut oil)

In honor of the first day of fall, we bring you a deliciously sweet, warm and cozy treat. We've been talking about making a cinnamon roll inspired recipe for a while now, because we LOVE cinnamon rolls. The thing is, gluten-free cinnamon rolls are just a little too complicated for our kitchen. We've made them once, they were delicious, but we wanted that same cinnamon roll flavor without all the fuss. So, we bring you gluten-free cinnamon roll biscuit skillet cake. Promise, the name is way more complicated than the recipe.
GF Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Skillet Cake
Ingredients:
- 2 Tbs. coconut oil (melted)
- 2 1/2 cups gluten-free baking mix
- 1/2 cup water
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla

For Cinnamon Swirl
- 4 Tbs. coconut oil (melted)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 Tbs. cinnamon 

For Glaze-
- 2 Tbs. coconut oil (melted)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tsp. almond milk (or milk of choice)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. In a skillet, melt 2 Tbs. coconut oil over medium heat.
3. Mix together baking mix, water, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
4. Add mixture to the skillet.
5. Mix together cinnamon swirl ingredients and place in a baggie.
6. Snip off a corner of the baggie and squeeze mixture into a swirl on top of the mixture in the skillet.
7. Place skillet in the oven for 20 minutes.
8. Mix together glaze ingredients and drizzle over the cake.
9. Slice the cake and serve warm!

Now if you are only cooking for 1 or 2 people like us, you may want to invite some friends over to prevent you from eating all of this in a day. Trust me, they will thank you.

in the meadow

So maybe you've noticed we haven't been blogging as much lately. We've been so crazy busy lately preparing for festivals. We've hated not being on the blog as much especially since we've really tried to blog everyday. Major fail. Please forgive us. 

Moving right along...So we knew after the first festival that we were gonna need a little break. We booked a place I stayed at last year for 3 days that is about 30 minutes outside of Nashville called Penuel Ridge. The experience was wonderful. If you are in the area and need to get away, I highly recommend this place. The cost for staying there is only $35 and the accommodations are very nice and the house is on such a beautiful piece of land. Unfortunately due to our schedules we could only get away for one night, but we made the most of our time there.

diy: affordable hang tags

For our festivals, we wanted to make sure that we were branded really well. We also wanted to make sure each clothing item had specific washing instructions, so we decided we needed some hang tags. This would also allow us to price each item accordingly. All of the tags we ordered cost $10 and we now have 500 of them (250 business cards cut in half.) Whoa nelly.
We ordered the business cards from Vistaprint. Now, you have to have your logo or whatever design you want on the tag. You will need to repeat the image twice in a business card size file. I did this in photoshop. I had two files, one with instructions on the back and the logo on the front with our website.
We ordered the "premium" business cards so the paper stock isn't flimsy. The business cards got cut before I got a picture of them in full size, but you get the picture of what they looked like.
Cut 'em down the middle.
Punch a hole in them.
Tie it to your clothing item! Super easy and affordable. The best kind of DIY!
We also used these to add our Hey Wanderer hashtag. Branding, branding, branding!
