Recipe Roundup: Christmas

by | Dec 13, 2018 | Recipes | 0 comments

While I love to cook, they are not always my own recipes. I have a few people I consistently follow that have tried and true recipes that match my style of eating. One thing I plan to do on this website is share some of my favorite products and recipes. There isn’t much point to me in wasting time re-creating the wheel. Instead, I hope you will find me as a valuable resource, who helps you filter and test out products and recipes.

In honor of the various holidays and celebrations throughout the year, I will be doing my Recipe Roundup posts, where I will share a few of our family’s favorite recipes that will hopefully help you plan your event.

First up: Christmas Recipe Roundup

  1. Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole (I have done this with regular and sweet potatoes and I usually add in a veggie like chopped peppers or some sort of green)
  2. Whole CrockPot Chicken (Make it easy and do a whole chicken instead of turkey or ham)
  3. Deb’s Kale Salad
  4. Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts – recipe below
  5. Ultimate Potato Gratin
  6. Gluten Free Cheddar Biscuits
  7. Gluten Free Cutout Cookies for Santa (here is her nut free version that I haven’t tried)
  8. Dairy Free Peppermint Bark
  9. Dry Farm Wines
  10. KC Canning Company Pickled Bloody Mary Mix
