Pão de Queijo (gluten-free Brazilian cheese bread)

Pão de Queijo (gluten-free Brazilian cheese bread)

Have you ever been to a Brazilian steakhouse? If you haven’t, you are missing out on the most amazing (and naturally gluten-free) bread ever.  It’s called pão de queijo, and it’s made with lots of cheese. If that hasn’t got you dying to try it yet, I should also say that it’s chewy, soft, and so deliciously flavorful.  It’s happens to be really easy, as well.

Spaghetti Squash and Italian Turkey Meatballs

I’ve found my new favorite fall meal. It’s pretty healthy but feels so so indulgent.  Roasted spaghetti squash is topped with Italian turkey meatballs, marinara sauce, shredded parmesan cheese, and fresh basil leaves. Fall and winter squash season is here (I can’t wait to make this soup again) and I am so happy about it! Once you try this meal, you will be too.

Sixlet Butterscotch Pudding Cookies

Sixlet Butterscotch Pudding Cookies

I will never get tired of classic chocolate chip cookies.  However, it’s fun to switch it up every once in awhile, right?  The dough for these cookies is made with butterscotch pudding which keeps them soft and adds a subtle but yummy hint of butterscotch.  Obviously there are chocolate chips (mini chips, as to not overwhelm the other flavors), but the really fun part is the Sixlet candies, which add a nice crunch and an almost malty flavor.

Vanilla Toffee Pie with Macaroon Crust

Vanilla Toffee Pie with Macaroon Crust {gluten-free}

Pie! Everybody loves pie, right? Pudding pies are some of my favorite to make (like this one). They can be whipped up quickly with a box of pudding mix, or you can take your time and make pudding from scratch. The crust here is what really stands out, though.  The crust is essentially just the same coconut macaroon recipe used to make cookies.  I love coming up with fun and delicious gluten-free pie crusts. This one is no exception!
