Recipe Roundup: Ultimate Comfort Food!

Happy Friday y'all!

I wanted to share some DELICIOUS recipes that we have been cooking lately.  As the colder temps are coming in, I am craving anything and everything COMFORT FOOD. Seriously…the winter weight is also setting in.  It's amazing what a little cheese, couch time and egg nog will do!

With my gluten free diet, comfort food is sometimes a challenge. I don't love the gf breads out there unless I fry them up (um, not so healthy) and the doughs are just not an easy, bake it real quick situation. These are a few recipes that we found to satisfy my warm, comfort food need without a ton of hassle.


I am in LOVE with this recipe by gluten-free-girl. Y'all, even if you are not gluten free, like my husband, you will find this recipe to be one of the best eggplant parmesan recipes you've ever had. Trust me.

It is super easy to cook, adds lots of extra flavors like red pepper & tomatoes, and isn't fried. One of the more healthy eggplant parms that I've ever had. Perfect for those cold, rainy winter nights.

Plus, if you haven't read Shauna & Danny's blog, hop on over! She is a beautiful writer and she has some amazingly delicious recipes to share.

Try it out for yourself!


Chicken pot pie is one of the ULTIMATE comfort foods! Its also a big request in our house once winter sets in.  In the bitterness of winter, this staple is on the table at our house probably every other week (do you see where my winter weight comes from?!).

To top it all off, one of Andrew's favorite things about chicken pot pie, is what he gets to say. This e-card says it all.  Such a charmer…

So when I found this recipe for chicken pot pie soup, I knew we had to try it out! And y'all, it is just as good as the pie! For us, we substituted regular flour for gluten free flour and it was just the same! I also added some mushrooms for extra flavor. It turned out to be a super creamy dish without all the crust hassle. This one will definitely be a repeat in our kitchen…watch out thighs!


And since we are on the subject of winter weight and thighs, lets add cookie dough bars into the mix, shall we?! I haven't tried out this recipe yet, but I have a feeling over the holidays it is going to be the perfect excuse to try it out. Calories don't count at Christmas, right?!!?     

Averie Cooks makes a simple, two ingredient dessert, and its gluten free! All you need is the Pillsbury g-free cookie dough in a tub and some reese cups to make these mouthwatering treats. How easy is that? I'll let you know how they are:)

Have a great weekend cooking y'all!
