Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffin Tops

 

I have never been one to dive head first into the annual pumpkin craze. Not that I don’t like pumpkin, I’ve just never become pumpkin obsessed. Fall rolls around, the temperature drops a few degrees, and everyone is slipping into their boots and leggings and heading to starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte. Don’t lie, you know you did it. I, however, have never caught that pumpkin fever…until today.

Thank You

thankyou

Two weeks ago I shared my testimony here on the blog. I was completely overwhelmed by the response I received, and by how many people my message has reached. Several of you have written to me of similar experiences, thanking me for sharing some hope for a better future. It touches my heart to know that the Lord is working through me to reach out to others and make a positive impact on their lives. Just knowing that I have helped one person makes everything I do worth while. I am so blessed and excited to witness this growth in my ministry….

My daughter and I had such a good time creating these delicious bite-sized snacks. These are a great treat for the kids, and perfect for getting them involved in the kitchen. My three ear old daughter did all the pouring, mixing, and cutting! Lyla was so excited to create, bake, and pack her own snacks. They turned out fantastic and taste just like the real deal!

Paleo Chicken Apple Sausages

Chicken Apple Sausage

Chicken and Apple has become my favorite flavor combination when it comes to sausages. Quality pre-made sausages can get to be a bit pricey. I get a pack of 10 for my girls every week, which is just enough for them, but I am always tempted to eat them myself. I decided to make some of my own to stash in the freezer so I wouldnt have to steal food from my kids. The turned out fantastic. And the little ones loved them too. It’s okay….Ill share….

Grain free Cheddar Chive Waffles

Grain Free Cheddar Chive Waffles

Lettuce wraps are great…but they can get old. They can also get messy. I wanted a sandwich bread or bun that could hold up to the mess, but I don’t have the time to bake fresh bread every week. So I started using my waffles. The easiest grain-free sandwich solution. Waffles are crispy and moist and can hold up to the sloppiest of sandwich fillings. The little grooves are perfect for spreading mayo or almond butter. Life changed….

Honey Lime Chicken Marinade

Tis the season for grillin! I’ll be real with you, I haven’t ever really gotten into grilling until this year. I used to just leave it to the guys. But….my husband doesn’t seem to care too much for it. I have no clue why, since he is REALLY good at it. He made some BBQ bacon wrapped venison that was out of the park! And my skeptical yankee family members polished it off. That man can really throw down when he tries. Alas, I fear that I am the only one around here that truly loves cooking. I will proudly assume the role of grill master….
