 New Favorite Recipes We've Discovered: 

I may not have found much time to post new recipes here on the blog recently, but that doesn't mean I haven't been cooking and trying new recipes.  I took exactly one picture, so this isn't as visual as usual, but I don't want to lose track of these, so you here you go!    Here are a few new favorites we've discovered recently...check back and I'll update it with new links as we try them:  

LUNCH/DINNER: 

Best Broccoli Cheese Soup:  WE loved this healthier version of broccoli cheese soup!

Buddha Bowls (We loved this for dinner, but loved it even more as leftovers the next day for lunch.   I want to make a double batch of it at the beginning of the week and use it for healthy, easy to grab lunches later.   We used a mix of roasted brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes for the veggies, and used cauliflower rice instead of rice.  And I doubled the sauce, because I knew my family would eat more veggies if there was more sauce.  haha, my kids may be teens now, but I still use some of the same tricks to get them to eat their veggies ! )

Chili Lime Instapot Chicken--good basic overall mexican chicken recipe--love that it comes out perfectly in the Instapot!

Grilled Chicken and Avocado Pesto--served over cauliflower rice, cooked the chicken on cookie sheet at 400-degrees for 20 minutes, very low carb and very delicious!

Korean Steak Bowls:  We went through a phase of eating this once  week or so and like it with chicken even better than steak.

Sesame Chicken Salad--Great flavors in a delicious healthy dinner.

Favorite Chia Seed Pudding:
  hearty and chocolatey, great with fresh fruit and a drizzle of nut butter over the top

Gluten Free / Low Carb Pancakes

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies: Just make sure you use GF oats, but this is a good solid GF cookie recipe that's saved me many times!    I like to omit the flax, add a real egg, and increase the oat flour just a bit.  Perhaps one of these times, I'll write down what I do and add it here to the blog.

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls: It's a terribly written recipe (I guess I'm a recipe snob) and calls for super expensive flour, but these made for the best GF breakfast for Christmas morning.  Even my gluten eating family gobbled them up!

The BEST GF Lemon Bars: Nice and zesty--the way lemon bars should be!

Gluten Free Rolls--calls for some weird/expensive ingredients, but are the BEST gluten free rolls I've ever had
https://gfjules.com/recipes/gluten-free-pull-apart-dinner-rolls/


Keto Tortillas: easy and good GF tortillas (we made them a little thicker to be more like naan bread)
https://elavegan.com/keto-almond-flour-tortillas/


Mashed Cauliflower--good basic recipe.  Added extra cream cheese and extra garlic.  
https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/230816/garlic-mashed-cauliflower/

No Sugar Cranberry Sauce--Just the right amount of tartness.  Also excellent added to whipped cream cheese or served over goat cheese.

Overnight Oats--We may be a little late to the game, but we have just discovered the joy of overnight oats for crazy mornings.  We usually use some PB powder in place of actual PB and love to change up the toppings with different fruits and nuts.
