Gluten Free Chile Rellenos

This is one of my absolute favorite ways to eat green chile, I say that all the time. This gluten free version tastes just as good as the traditional recipe made with wheat flour. I actually like this version better because I feel that the rice flour gives a lighter more crisp coating.
We've been blessed to be in an area where Hatch Green Chile's have become available during the season, some markets will even roast them by the case for customers. That means I get to stock my freezer every year! Have you had Hatch Green Chile yet? If not, you're missing out! Hunt some down, order online! It's one of those must try foods if you like chile.

Women's World Cup Party

I know this was a long time ago. June 8th as a matter of fact! Yikes, but we had Piglet's soccer team over to watch the game. I set out some cupcakes, fruit, and Diva made a cinnamon bundt cake. The rest of the food was all the yumminess that the team parents brought over. It was so much fun! 
I even got to use my soccer cupcake liners and toppers. I love parties!

Let them eat cake! Five cakes for the holidays.

Whole Wheat Carrot Cake
The holidays are fast approaching and I know that means lots of cooking, and lots of desserts! I thought I would round up some cakes. I chose cakes because my kids have been baking so much since we moved this past Spring. They baked the Whole Wheat Carrot cake pictured above and I wanted brag on them a bit,  my 7 and 9 year old did such a great job! It's one of our favorite cakes since early on in our marriage. The carrot cake is moist and flavorful. If you like cheesecake, this Carrot Cake Cheesecake Cake has a layer of cheesecake in the middle. So good.

American Girl Bitty Bear Christmas Tree

Trees, trees, trees. So it's been a good 5 years since I've really decorated for Christmas. I mean I think in that time we've put up one tree, I believe that was in 2012. Well, we finally have the room to pull things out and decorate! So I thought I would share some of our Christmas decoration with you all. First up is Pixie's tree. It's a 6 foot tree that is quite sad and not very fluffy or full, none of their trees are fluffy or full actually. But I got them for $21 each, so you can't beat that.

2015 Lunches 134-145

More school lunches! I'm not sure I'll be blogging much this month or the next. I do have several posts scheduled but I'm just going to enjoy the time I have with my family when they have off. I'll still pack lunches and will probably be backed up until next summer. But that's okay!

Pumpkin Spice Glazed Pumpkin Seeds

These Pumpkin Spice Glazed Pumpkin seeds are crunchy and spicy. Use these to top salads, yogurt, soups, hot or cold cereal, stir them into granola, or use them for a special treat. They are like candy. Put them over the scones I just posted last week/
Simple to make you can swap out the seeds for walnuts, pecans, cashews. Whatever you like.
I sprinkled them on Pumpkin Spiced Caramel Rolls.

2015 Lunches #123-133 Take it Tuesday

I missed last week! What!? Holiday rush already? I think so, I don't know. Maybe that's an excuse. Or maybe I'm just hopeful because I love when Fall rolls around, the air gets crisp. Christmas is around the corner. Love it.  I can't wait. Snuggling with my babies on the couch. Hot cocoa. Boots. YAY!!!

Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze

There's something about light fluffy scones. A hot cup of tea. These scones have a wonderful pumpkin flavor and the ginger chips add a nice warmth. We love us some crystallized ginger around here. If you don't like maple, a white chocolate drizzle would be good also.
These freeze well, wrap them up good individually. Bring to room temperature and warm in a toaster oven or microwave if you have one for a short period of time.
