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 . . . . . .

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*

Does Hearing “What’s For Dinner?” Sends Chills Down Your Spine?

Well, I found this place in Manchester CT, it’s called Dream Dinners.

What an awesome concept for families to spend time together, single people that hate to cook by themselves with the plus side being, messing up someone else’s kitchen instead of your own . . .

Here are two videos that give you more information about the process.

 

 

 

Depending on how you go about it, meal planning can be the misery of your existence or your weekly lifesaver. And while it does require a bit of thinking in advance, I’m all about helping you make it easy to save both time and money.
