Gluten-Free Pumpkin Donuts
I'm always on the the hunt for gluten free recipes for my daughter Juliet. Donuts are one of her favorites that we have had to cut out. She was over the moon for this recipe!
All you need is 1/2 cup of confectioner sugar and 1.5 TBS of water for the plain. Mix together well and dip the entire donut into the bowl and then let dry.
For the chocolate you will need 1.5 TBS of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 cup of confectioner sugar, and 1.5 TBS.
Chocolate was the favorite here!! Recipe made 8 donuts for us so you might want to double!
This is going to be a Reel Family Staple! Delicious and Simple! There are so many nights where I realize its almost time to make dinner and I simply don't feel like it! Are you with me? I actually found making this recipe pleasant. You chop quite a few veggies but they only need to marinate for 30 minutes and then once you throw them in the broiler, the entire dinner is ready in 8 minutes! If you are a prepper, you could have it all done and ready to go on an off night! I'd love to hear what you think!

A Sweet Potato Mission!
I hate sweet potatoes. I've been on a mission to like them for three years now because they are so good for the body but to no avail!
Shift Shop put the pressure on with its nutrition plan! My carb list is minuscule! I found a recipe for sweet potato fries with garlic powder, salt, pepper and paprika roasted for 20 minutes at 450 and they aren't bad. That's about as close as I can get to enjoying sweet potatoes! 😂

1¼ cups freshly grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese
3 cups cooked chopped chicken breast, boneless, skinless
6 cups chopped broccoli florets, steamed
1 tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
½ tsp. ground black pepper
1. Cook macaroni according to package directions. (Do not use salt or oil if suggested in directions.) Set aside.
2. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.
3. Add flour; cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute, or until brown (don’t let it burn).
4. Slowly whisk in almond milk; cook, whisking constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until mixture thickens and there are no lumps.
5. Reduce heat to low. Add cheese; cook, whisking constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until melted.
6. Add macaroni, chicken, broccoli, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute, or until heated through.

Tips and Variations:
• Use quinoa pasta and gluten-free flour if you’re following a gluten-free lifestyle.
• Asparagus, green beans or Brussels sprouts can be substituted for broccoli.
• A combination of cheeses like cheddar and Gouda, cheddar and Monterey jack, and cheddar and Asiago can be substituted for sharp cheddar.
This has become a staple in our house! So full of flavor and simple to make! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I swap out the wine for vegetable broth because I like a few tortilla chips with mine but to each their own! #chooseyourcarbswisely
