With the advent of fall, and the crisp weather it brings, I always find myself drinking more and more tea.

Here’s a great recipe I tried from the King Arthur Flour website- for anyone who hasn’t checked out their website, I highly recommend it. I usually have very good luck with their recipes.

Since I’m trying to avoid GMOs,  I wanted to find english muffins without the corn meal. Unfortunately you can’t seem to buy them that way, so my only option was to make them myself. In place of the corn meal, I used dry Cream Of Wheat (farina). It’s an easy swap, and the texture is exactly the same! 🙂
