Gluten Free Cheddar Cornbread

You all know I'm putting most of my new recipes on but whenever I use one of my recipes from the 500+ recipes on here, I kept seeing the photo of the eggs. Got tired of seeing that, so I just needed a change! (also, big day at school today and woke up earlier than the alarm clock's 5:30am)
At a recent Family Night Dinner, (I love to cook for 7 on Tuesday nights!) I made this cornbread and wanted to share because it's so easy and delicious and when I talked to some friends about it, they'd never done this.

To make the easiest gluten free cheddar cornbread, buy a good mix, then LAYER IT UP.
I don't make cornbread very often but now and then, it's just so perfect with a great soup or stew!

Now and then I buy a gluten free cornbread mix from or pick up one in the grocery from Krusteaz.

I make the cornbread mix according to directions.
I rub my dish with coconut oil.
I spread out half of the batter in the prepared pan.
Next, I layer in 1/2 cup organic white corn and 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
Then, I put the second half of the batter on the top and then cook according to the package directions, or maybe 3-5 minutes more.

It's delicious and looks great when cut into big chunks that just cry out for some KerryGold butter on the top. Some people around here even crumble this cornbread into the bowl before they add their soup or stew.

I've also recently made a batch of this with the middle layer consisting of:

1 small container of green chilis and 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese.

Both have their favorites in this house!

Broccoli and Eggs in Cast Iron

Hi, guys. When I had a week of snow days I made eggs every morning, all different ways. This one was a delicious and easy way to get fueled up for a great day of checking things off the to-do list. 

In a small cast iron skillet, I put 1 tsp of coconut oil and rolled it around to coat the bottom evenly. (I think my kitchen is a bit crooked, or maybe it's my stove?)

I broke three eggs into the skillet and barely broke the yellows. I added a handful of organic broccoli, cut into very small pieces, hickory smoked sea salt, mustard, smoked paprika, and freshly ground black pepper.

As the eggs, over medium low heat, began to cook along the edges, I would pull them up with the spatula and tilt the pan, so that the whites would move under there.

Next, I cut down the center of the eggs with the spatula and flipped over both pieces. 

Then, I turned off the stove and moved the little cast iron skillet off the heat, and slid the eggs onto a plate. 

Ah, so good with coffee!

So, since I'm a left handed gal in cast since Sept 24, I haven't been posting much on here. I hope to get this waterproof cast off on Nov 10 if the X rays look good. Then I'll get a brace and start working on the wrist rehab. (been working the thumb already)

Needless to say, eating has been a challenge - I can't cook with just my non dominant hand, I can hardly get food INTO my mouth with my right hand...and what else? I bought a new dishwasher and it's sat in my kitchen floor for an entire week now. (If anyone out there is trying to think of a job that is needed, this might be a great idea...) 

But, tonight Jack, Isaac, I am going to Ger and Cassie's house. They made chili. Jess is bringing grilled cheese sandwiches. How nice is that? I'm looking forward to it.

Don't you love the shirts in the photo? Kim saw them and just had to get them for Ger and Cassie. The SASS is STRONG with them, for sure! I can't wait to see them in these matching shirts.

Paleo Chicken Pepper Paprikash has the power of smoked paprika.

Chicken Paprikash is a traditional Hungarian dish that uses Paprika as a main ingredient in the cooking of chicken thighs until extremely tender and flavorful.  I took the old family recipe and changed it up, using Paleo ingredients and Smoked Paprika and everything compliments the other ingredients to the point of perfection.

Smoked paprika has a deeper color and a more intense flavor than normal paprika.  it's filled with vitamin C and carotenoids and we all know the long list of benefits to our health that come with that, right?

So, try this easy and efficient recipe for your health and strength in your meal prep plan this week. Chicken thighs are also economical, even when they're organic.

Here's the recipe:  Paleo Chicken Pepper Paprikash

Berry Blend Fig JouleFuel Smoothie is SO good for you!

Figs. Have you read about the nutritional powerhouse that figs provide? Did you know that you can substitute figs in any recipe that has dates 1:1? The more figs are researched, the more health benefits are found and since they've been around for over 5,000 years, I think it's time you gave them some attention.

People who are new to figs sometimes find the fresh ones...weird. All those different textures and the seeds and sometimes just the look of them stop some people in their tracks. 

Even the dried figs have a consistency that some find hard to love. 

What's the answer to this? Throw them in the Vitamix and sweeten up a JouleFuel smoothie. It's seriously good stuff! click here for the recipe:  Berry Blend JouleFuel Smoothie
