Gluten-Free Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are on the sweeter side due to all the powdered sugar added in, so make sure to use unsweetened cocoa powder!

Makes 15 cookies

Ingredients: –

2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder –

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar –

3 egg whites –

1 tbsp vanilla extract –

1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

*To make them Christmas Festive – melt Nestle Toll House White Chocolate Chips and drizzle over cookies – add christmas sprinkles*

Allow the cookies to set on baking mat, forming a sort of hardened “crust” for 30 minutes before baking. This is a vital step because if not done the cookies will expand too much in the oven

Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes

ENJOY . . . . . .

How To Chi in Some Energy With Feng Shui . . .

I have been studying Feng Shui  lately – I would like to add this service to my Home & Office Concierge Service. I suffer from depression, I am looking for a more holistic way to treat it and I read an article in a wellness center over the summer about how Feng Shui has been found to help with people suffering from depression . . . I was intrigued.

Cleaning and Organizing for people in their homes and offices for over 20 years, I do understand the concept of placement – and in other blogs I have written about how a home, office, and/or space has its own “heartbeat”. So, I am beginning to understand placement along with symbols to energize an area. I’m getting there!

If you would like to work with me in this very infantile stage of my learning the powers of Feng Shui – please reach out to me (860)961.6824 (leave me a message that you’re interested in FENG SHUI and I’ll get back to you), we can learn together – it will be very affordable to start out at this stage of the process in  developing an outline for this service.

*Side Note – I chose this video not only because Nancy is simple in her explanation of the process – but I love Olivia Newton-John . . . Who doesn’t right? Enjoy . . . . . . . .

Gluten-Free Living – A Delicious Dish

Champagne Shrimp Risotto

SOURCE: https://www.bettycrocker.com

Ingredients

1 lb uncooked medium shrimp in shells, thawed if frozen

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup brut champagne, dry white wine or Progresso™ chicken broth
1 1/2 cups uncooked Arborio or other short-grain white rice
2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton), warmed
1 cup clam juice or water, warmed
2 cups chopped arugula, watercress or spinach
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1.
    Peel shrimp. Make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each shrimp; wash out vein.
  • 2.
    In 12-inch skillet or 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until tender. Reduce heat to medium. Add shrimp; cook uncovered about 8 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are pink. Remove shrimp from skillet; keep warm.
  • 3.
    Add champagne to onion in skillet; cook until liquid has evaporated. Stir in rice. Cook uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until edges of rice kernels are translucent. In 4-cup glass measuring cup, mix chicken broth and clam juice; pour 1/2 cup mixture over rice. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed. Repeat with remaining broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender and creamy.
  • 4.
    About 5 minutes before risotto is done, stir in shrimp, arugula, cheese and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

    EXPERT TIP:

  • Even though you may be tempted, don’t rush the process! When making risotto, adding the broth a little at a time ensures that the dish will be creamy while allowing the grains to remain separate.Leave out the shrimp and serve this as a lovely main course for your vegetarian friends.

*Shrimp and Rice create an excellent source of iron, a mineral important for transporting oxygen to working muscles*
