Santa's Simple GF Sugar Cookies

Nothing like waiting until the last minute to whip out these cookies on Christmas Eve with my boys.  Luckily I had two little helpers that were super excited to make and decorate Santa's treats. ;)  You can make these crunchy if you like your cookies that way by baking for the 12 minutes otherwise they will be a little soft.  I think its safe to say that Santa really enjoyed them!

Savory Breakfast Casserole

We are always on the look out for a good breakfast casserole that you can make quick and will feed the family over the weekend and this one is a keeper.  We will be adding this to the top of our Christmas Morning Casserole list!  My husband and I like to prep it the night before so while the kids are going crazy on their stocking stuffers we just pop the dish in the oven and 40 minutes later breakfast is served!  This recipe is originally from PaleOMG with just a couple of changes.  I didn't have a sweet potato this morning so I substituted fingerling potatoes and loved it.  I also only put one tablespoon of hot sauce in because our chorizo was pretty spicy to begin with.  Now get after it and enjoy!

GPA's BBQ Chicken

Want a super simple really good kid loving chicken recipe that you can even cook on a hot plate?...well, look no further because this is the one.  We used to beg my dad for his BBQ chicken and then devour it when he would make it for us.  He would usually grill it but while I was on vacation one summer the only thing I had was a tiny kitchen and hot plate to work with so I thought I would give it a try and wow super easy and super yummy!  I hope you enjoy this one with your kids!

Cold Weather...Red Hot...Beet Turnip Soup

Is on the menu!!!  If you are still in the midst of continuous cold weather, snow and rain then this soup is for just for you to pull you out of your long winter blues and make your belly warm and happy!!  The turmeric is an awesome addition to this soup for not only flavor but good anti-immflamatory qualities but if you don't have any on hand you can make it without and I guarantee it will still be amazing.  Stay warm and Enjoy!!
