Chocolate chip cookies. But not your average one, besides being gluten free. The star ingredient: sea salt. I found the most amazing recipe for homemade chocolate chip cookies that was touted as ”the best ever” and I must say they are the best I truly have ever tasted. The slight crunch of the sea salt balances out the sweetness of the chocolate chips, and takes this cookie to a whole ‘nother level. And I found my favorite baking flour in their gluten free version? Oh we about to do this! Lol!
”On top of spaghetti…all covered with cheese…” I don’t know if it’s the song that made me want spaghetti and meatballs, or me craving Italian. Either way, here it is! All freshly made from the meatballs all the way down to the sauce. Served along a spring mix garden salad and GF garlic baguette bread – this meal is perfection!
I’m feeling like some spaghetti and meatballs tonight and I needed 3 things…gluten free spaghetti, my homemade marinara sauce, and of course meatballs. I mixed these with grassfed ground beef and hot italian pork sausage, garlic, parsley, some fresh crumbled Udi’s GF bread for breadcrumbs, grated parmesan reggiano, drizzle of olive oil, along with some spices. Now off to the oven they go while I heat the sauce. I’ll post a pic when they’re all done and dressed up. 😉
Good morning! I must admit, I am not a baker, more of a good cook, but lately I have been acing my baking skills. Check out these beautiful from scratch biscuits I made for breakfast. Just picture perfect! Want to know a secret ingredient my grandmother taught to add to your biscuit batter? Mayonnaise. Just one tablespoon mixed in makes them so delicately moist. Just call me the biscuit lady. 🙂
These are the pancakes I remember as a child at Grandma’s house. We would sit around the table and put our order in for how many we wanted, and she would keep them coming, which was no easy feat with a house full of people. Now I take pride in whipping up the best pancakes for my family to sink their teeth in, and they consistently look like this. The art is in the technique. Cast iron skillet, perfect batter, flip timing, and the frying conditions have to be just right. Aunt Jemima has nothing on these…
