Steak Fajitas

1 Large sweet onion
2 Green Peppers
2 Yellow Peppers
2 Red Peppers
Several Steaks-Sirloin,Tenderloin(my Favorite),or T-bone's

Slice onions in Strips and Saute until they start to soften.  Then add Peppers in Slices and Saute until done to your liking.  I grill my steaks then slice and add to veggies when they are done cooking.  This time I added a can of Black Beans.

Spelt Tortillas-8 medium Tortillas

2 Cups Whole Spelt Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
3 TBS butter
1/2 Cup Warm Water

Mix Flour, Baking Powder, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl. Mix in butter with fingertips until thoroughly blended. Add 1/2 cup warm water and mix well. Divide into 8 balls(divide in half then 4 each half) cover and let rest for about 10 minutes on well floured board. Use a rolling pin to roll the tortillas into circular shapes about 8 inches in diameter. Carefully transfer to a hot, lightly greased cast iron pan, turning to cook both sides, about 20 seconds each side.

Blueberry Muffins

2 3/4 cup Flour I use 1 3/4 cup Whole Spelt and 1 cup Ivory Teff or all Ivory Teff
2 TBS Arrowroot
1 1/2 tsp xanthum gum
1 TBS Rumford Baking Powder
3/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 cup Goat Milk(Almond Milk, Hemp Milk, Rice Milk,or Water)
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Agave, Maple Syrup, or Honey
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries(if frozen get out and let thaw on a plate while mixing up the muffins)

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F. Grease with butter a 12 cup muffin pan(prefer a Pampered Chef Muffin Stone) or line with paper cups. In a bowl whisk the dry ingredients together. In a 2 cup glass measure, whisk the water, oil, and agave. Pour into the flour mixture and mix just until combined. Don't overmix. Fold in Blueberries. Spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling them almost full. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until firm when touched in the center, lightly browned, and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes. Tip on their sides in the pan. Remove to the rack and cool completely if any are left!
