Sorry this isn’t one of my best pictures. I honestly had no intentions about blogging about this. It was just to good to not share with you! I did a post a while back about Dove Chocolate Discoveries. Well after spending lots of money buying their products I thought I would sign up. And that has been the best decision I have made! I am getting to experience all new ways of enjoying cocoa. Including in every day cooking.
I am all for budget friendly meals and one of those is Country Fried Steak- aka Breaded Cube Steak! Our family loves having these with some mashed potatoes, some corn or green beans. You could probably do a white gravy sauce (you can use my sausage gravy and just leave out the sausage!). It really is a great, budget friendly dish!
Last night we tried a new recipe. It was really good, my kids both really liked it and my son even had seconds! It was really easy to throw together. Total cook and prep time was about 30 minutes! This is just a regular recipe that is naturally gluten free! I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and glad I tried it!
Every now and then we go in with my in laws and buy either 1/4 or 1/2 a cow. When we are able to do this I am in heaven. With being grass fed, no hormones, as natural as you can get with cows, their beef is to die for! It is always tender and juicy. They only raise one at time so it is not stuck in a huge massive feed lot either. I hate when we run out and I have to go back to buying from a store!
This is a dish I used to make before going gluten free. I would use the Kraft Mac & Cheese (white cheddar flavor) and some Parmesan cheese. For you gluten folks I will put a note below as to what i did with that below. This was my first attempt and I think I may do a few things differently next time. I think this would be a great dish to mix up the flavors. Like add taco seasoning, or chili powder, maybe some garlic and mozz cheese and italian spices for an italian flavor. I think this is a good base for those hamburger helper type meals.
One of the recipes I tried from from the cookbook Gluten Free Made Simple was their Spaghetti and Meatballs. The only thing I did differently was I made my Spaghetti Sauce instead of the recipe they had paired up with the Meatballs. This was a real easy recipe to make and to be honest the meatballs tasted wonderful the next day with BBQ sauce on them!
Heard this recipe on our local radio station and had to try it. I changed some things up to add more flavor so if you would like the original recipe you can go here (it just uses hamburger and onions then the topping). This will also make a really good breakfast casserole dish if you add some peppers, tomatoes, and maybe some ham or sausage instead of beef.
This has always been one of my favorite dishes. My Grandma made it, my Mom made it and now I am sharing it with my kids!
|Dinner of meatloaf, corn and mashed potatoes- I will try to get the name of the GF Gravy|
Meatloaf can be a very good and naturally gluten free dish if using the right products. Here is a simple dish that I have been making since going GF. The only thing I had to change was the brand of oats I used.
Tater Tot Casserole is a good quick go to meal for those chilly days.
