let’s bring in 2015 with healthy choices, shall we? for the past 6 weeks, i have cooked A LOT of food. and for some reason, i have not followed through and blogged about this food. i think now i know why. i don’t believe in it. not in the way i believe in clean eating. sure, it was all gluten-free. most of it was even grain-free and sugar-free. but it was holiday food. i think we all know how to make chocolate taste great, and appetizers pop when you’re using potatoes and bacon. DUH! but the real recipes i want to share are life-giving and energy producing. and delicious! those are the recipes that motivate me to take pretty pictures and rave on and on.
that being said, i would like to share two recipes i discovered over the holidays: gluten-free scones and gluten-free gingerbread cookies. both are lighter and more delicate than their floury counterparts, and you won’t feel weighed down when you eat 20. ahem…i mean 1 or 2. or 3.
i also made potato latkes for a party recently, and oh my my. they were a hit. shredded potatoes fried in butter and oil and topped with chive sour cream and pulled pork. amazing. i did not skimp on the butter or the sour cream, or the taste-testing while making them. sheesh.
i will post those scone and cookie recipes soon, but i just wanted to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! i don’t know who’s out there reading this, but i am thoroughly enjoying this blog. i feel like it is a silent accountability partner when i’m in the kitchen. i don’t want to make something and then have to report later that i used unhealthy ingredients. this blog inspires me to stay clean and healthy and happy!!!!
