Shady Grove Sundries

"I always think of my customers using my bowls by holding one in one hand and and a spoon in the other hand, maybe sitting on the porch listening to the birds. That's what I do." says Licia Lucas-Pfadt.

Licia is a "part time" potter who lives in Montana and runs a guest ranch with her husband, children and a handful of assorted animals.  Don't let the "part time" fool you, she is a well educated professional with years of experience in clay. 

She believes "A piece made by hand holds the vibrations of its maker rather than those of the machine. When you surround yourself with things made by real people, you invite a tiny piece of each craftsman into your space." By doing this, you "begin your day with these pieces in your hand or by your side and your ability to find beauty in the rest of the day will strengthen." 

Licia is a gluten-free cook.  

She shares her recipe for gluten-free granola with us.

Mix together:

4 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats
1 cup red mill gluten free hot cereal
1/2 cup ground or whole flax seed
1 tsp cinnamon

In another bowl mix together:

1/2 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup honey
2 Tbs coconut oil
1 1/2 Tbs gluten free vanilla

Drizzle liquid over dry and toss. Bake on cookie sheets at 350 for 30 min turning as best you can half way through. Then add your choice of 1 cup nuts and 2 cups dried fruit.
"I am connected with food, from growing it 
to cooking it to eating it."
