Recipe Easiest French Toast Ever (Gluten Free)

Here’s a simple french toast recipe that my kid (and husband) love. It’s just toasted paleo bread with grass fed organic ghee, and organic maple syrup… But, surprisingly it tastes quite a bit like french toast, because the bread has both an eggy flavor and texture. It’s so easy that your kiddos can make it all by themselves, supervised while using the toaster.

*I consider this a paleo recipe (though perhaps not super strict paleo) because of the use of ghee or high vitamin butter oil.

Kid loving goodness

Recipe Buttered Cauliflower Puree (Gluten Free)

by Kristen Suzanne in gluten free, grass fed butter, recipe

Here’s a great side dish recipe to have in your recipe box because it can go with so many meals, it’s easy to make, and it’s nutritious. It has a texture that is like air, if you can imagine that. But, the catch is that you need a high speed blender to get it to perfection, preferably a Vitamix with the plunger.

Yield 4 servings

Blend the steamed cauliflower and butter until smooth, using the plunger to make the magic happen. Taste and season with sea salt, if needed.

** My favorite steamer is here. I love it! I used to have one of those cheapies you insert in the bottom of a pot. It would always fold in while trying to get out the veggies – total pain. Then, it was hot and couldn’t touch it. I found this awesome steamer insert and fell madly in love. It fits a couple of my pots, I can easily get all the veggies out at once by using the side handles and picking it up and dumping all veggies in a bowl of butter. The handles don’t get too hot to touch. Highly recommend.

Recipe Rudolph Cherry Cobbler (Paleo Gluten Free Raw Vegan)

Rudolph Cherry Cobbler (Gluten Free. Paleo. Raw Vegan.)

I asked my husband, who has a birthday around the holidays, what he wanted to eat for his birthday dessert. He said without thinking twice, Rudolph Cherry Cobbler. It’s a raw vegan, paleo, and gluten free recipe from my Holidays Recipe Book that he’s been a raving fan of for the past five or so years. I said to him, “Really? That’s what you want for your birthday?” He said, “YES! It’s the best and I can’t eat just one serving, I keep going back for more.” I can’t say I blame him… it is friggin’ delish. The squishy and delicious cherries explode with flavor in your mouth.

Sunshine Muffins (Gluten Free Recipe)

 

Sunshine Muffins (Gluten Free)

Sunshine Muffins (Gluten Free)

These versatile and moist muffins are not sweet. I limit the sugar content in my family’s life so I create some recipes without any added sugar. The only sweetness from these babies comes from the orange juice. So, if you’d like a sweet muffin, then by all means add some sugar (coconut crystals, honey, xylitol).

I’m also known in my family to make gluten free muffins and breads without added sugar because if I feel like sweetening it up later, I drizzle raw honey or maple syrup on top.

Oh, another good reason for keeping the sugar out is that I can then serve these alongside stew or chili.

Recipe Tomato Beef (or Bison) Slow Cooker Stew

Hhmmm all done and ready to eat.

Hhmmm all done and ready to eat.

Here’s another easy recipe that uses the slow cooker. I continue to sing the praises of using a slow cooker because it cooks the food at low-ish temperatures, it is so fracking easy to use, and using a slow cooker saves tons of time. This recipe, like many of mine lately, is slim on ingredients because I really love letting the fresh ingredients speak for themselves. I didn’t add garlic or anything (although the jar of sauce I use includes some lovely flavors with basil, onion, etc).

Recipe Bison (or Beef) Mexican Stew Slow Cooker Paleo Gluten Free

by Kristen Suzanne in gluten free, grass fed bison, paleo

 

Mexican Stew

Mexican Stew

When we buy grass fed red meat, we opt for both grass fed bison and grass fed beef. Bison is reputed to have lower fat and cholesterol than beef (not that I’m concerned about that though – we just appreciate variety). So, when cooking with bison, I’ll often increase the fat in my dish by adding avocado, grass fed butter, or coconut oil.

Here’s another easy recipe using a slow cooker (one of my favorite kitchen appliances, you all must know that by now though, right?) that delights my entire family. It’s just a handful of ingredients because that’s all you really need for delicious home cooked food.

Spiced Bison or Beef Short Ribs (Slow Cooker, Paleo, Gluten Free)

 

Spiced Bison Short Ribs on Acorn Squash

Spiced Bison Short Ribs on Acorn Squash

I just had what must have been the easiest recipe in the world. As a result, I’m on the computer blogging about it because this easy recipe freed up so much time that I can share it with you.

Back story: I ordered grass fed bison short ribs a couple of months back, but they stayed in my freezer for so long because, frankly, I was intimidated by them. I’d never made ribs or short ribs, and I had no idea where to begin. Well, that’s not true. I did know where to begin. 1) My Slow Cooker  and 2) Google.

My new motto… when in doubt, slow cooker.
