New Recipe-Sloppy Joes

img_8707

One of my favorite meals growing up was sloppy joes.  My mom would brown the meat and add the can of sauce.  I like to make things from scratch when I can.  I feel like it is better for you without all the added preservatives and such.

I am currently on a mission to find meals that I can make quickly because of our busy schedule.  I am pretty sure we will add this to our favorites.  It was super easy to make and it was a hit!

We like to use Udi’s gluten free buns.  Our favorite way to eat them is to toast them on the grill.  They get a little crispy on the outside but warm and soft on the inside.  Yummo!  If you don’t do the bread, you could certainly put this on a bed of lettuce or in a leaf of lettuce to eat like a lettuce wrap.

Nutella Fudgesicles

Nutella is one of our favorite things around here.  We love smearing it on toast or crackers, dipping our fruit in it, and now, making fudgesicles!  These are so easy and fun to do.  We experimented for the first time today with this.  This is what we did:

1 cup 2% milk

1/3 cup Nutella

Whisk together until well blended.  Pour into popsicle holders.  This amount made 5 popsicles, but it depends on how big and how many popsicle holders you have.  You can easily double, or triple this recipe!  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 

Gluten Free Chocolate Krispy Delights

I am always seeing such yummy looking granola bars and oatmeal cookies that look so good!  My little celiac is one of those who cannot have the oats either, not even the gluten free oats.  She misses them so….I recently came across a recipe that was making these cookies, except using oats.  I thought I would substitue the oats with Kellogg's Gluten Free Rice Krispies and they turned out great!  I had to hurry and take the picture because all 4 kids were eating them up!  They will definately be a hit!
