HOLIDAY OATMEAL COOKIE MIX IN A JAR!

Holiday Oatmeal Cookie Mix
I absolutely LOVE the idea of gifting cookies in a jar!!! Hey, this could be a last minute Christmas Gift!!!
Of course this can be made into almost any cookie recipe!
Ingredients: 
  • For the mix
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (GF flour mix)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (Kosher salt)
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats (GF oats)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • I usually add raisins in addition to the crasins
  • To prepare
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (10 tablespoons), melted (Smart Balance) 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Method: 
For the mix:
Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Spoon into a 1-quart jar. Add the remaining mix ingredients in layers, pressing down lightly on each before adding the next. Seal jar.


To prepare:
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Pour cookie mix into a large bowl and stir in egg and melted butter. Drop cookie dough onto ungreased baking sheets by rounded tablespoons, leaving 2 inches between each cookie.Bake until edges are just golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Paleo Sour Cream

I have been searching for an alternative to sour cream for about 5 years! I'm so hoping this is the answer!...  Paleo Sour Cream Prep time:  5 mins          Cook time: 0 mins           Servings: 6
262 Votes Ingredients:- 1 can full fat coconut milk, left in the fridge overnight
- 1-2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
- 1/8 tsp. sea salt(kosher salt)

Equipment:- Can opener
- Kitchen spoon
- Medium sized bowl
- Citrus squeezer (if using lemon juice)
- Whisk

Directions:1. Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours (or overnight). This will cause the cream to separate from the milk.
2. Open the can of coconut milk and scrape out the cream into a medium sized bowl. Hint: I always open the can from the bottom and pour the milk out into a separate container before scraping out the cream. You can use the saved milk for smoothies and other recipes.
3. Whisk the sea salt and the lemon juice or vinegar into the cream until well combined. Taste and add more lemon…

TATER TOT STUFFING

The Lil Chef and I do not care for ANY sort of stuffing. I like the idea of it. I happen to be on Pinterest scrolling as usual and I found a Lasagna Timpano Pin/Post (which I will be posting in the near future) that looked amazing! I followed the link and it took me to The Food In My Beard site. I decided to do some exploring and I found this!!!!! I had to comment and tell him he was a genius! This is allergy free and not mushy bread, cornbread, stovetop or whatever so The Lil Chef and I are actually willing to try this! I'm excited! I will not be able to make it this year but it's definitely on the list for next year. Hopefully this will be something I can add to my/our repertoire.
