Super Bowl 2016

Today I’m breaking with tradition just a bit by posting on Sunday and taking a loot back at last year and some recipes to enjoy tonight.

First up is cheese sauce. Which makes a fantastic chip dip when some diced jalapenos are thrown in! Or, you know, just cheese is good too. 🙂

And what are chips without some salsa to go with them? This is a super simple salsa recipe that only takes a few minutes to put together.

Tonight I’m actually going to make a variation on my gluten-free orange chicken. Yum! Although not a traditional football food, this meal continues to satisfy no matter the occasion.

And of course what meal would be complete without dessert? I’m thinking these gluten-free brownie cookies sound just perfect!

Want something more traditional? Try these gluten-free chocolate chip or M&M cookies. They are also quite perfect.

Want something a little bigger? How about combining the two for this brownie cookie cake? What’s even better is that it’s absolutely perfect while it’s still warm, served up with some vanilla ice cream.

Simple Salsa

Happy Friday, everyone!

Over the weekend we discovered that we had run out of salsa. *Gasp* We eat crazy amounts of salsa sometimes, and apparently had gone through it all.

Fortunately, I had plenty of ingredients, so I decided to try making my own! I think it turned out pretty well. Just what we had been looking for.

A couple weeks ago we tried out a new Mexican restaurant and they had some very interesting flavors of salsa, so I’ll (hopefully) be recreating some of those in the future.

In the meantime, here’s a basic salsa recipe. It’s similar to Chili’s salsa. I hope you enjoy!
