Recently I attempted homemade dumpling wrappers for the first time. They took a while and weren’t perfect but they were delicious and it was fun!⁣ You can totally use store bought wrappers instead, it would be much easier that way!⁣I do not come from an 

Cold Corn Summer Salad

Cold Corn Summer Salad

Summer is my favorite time of year for food. The produce is the best during this time – so many fresh items from the garden or the farmers market! I try to get as many of the ingredients for this cold corn summer salad from 

Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

This dish is heavily inspired by Alex’s Whole30 Meatloaf at TheDefinedDish.com!

I cannot eat onions or garlic and those are two huge ingredients in most meatloaves. This version is mostly low-FODMAP without any onions or garlic and it is still delicious and tastes like the classic dish!

Servings: about 4

Meatloaf Ingredients:
-1.5 lbs ground beef
-1 red bell pepper, diced
-¼ tsp herbs de provence
-1 tsp tomato paste
-1 tsp ghee or butter
-2 eggs, beaten
-1/4 cup almond flour

Sauce:
1/2 cup tomato sauce
-1 tbsp tomato paste
-1 tbsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce), soy sauce, or coconut aminos
-1 tbsp dijon mustard
-1 tbsp maple syrup

Mashed Potatoes:
4-5 gold potatoes
-½ cup milk of choice
-2 tbsp butter
-Salt and pepper

Instructions:
1. Finely dice your bell pepper and saute in a skillet in the ghee until soft – about 4-5 minutes. Add in the tomato paste and the herbs de provence and mix well.
2. Mix together the meat, egg, and almond flour. Mix in the bell pepper & tomato paste mixture. Add mixture to a parchment lined bread loaf tin.
3. Stir together the sauce and brush it on top of the meatloaf. Bake at 350 degrees F for about an hour, or until internal temperature of loaf is at least 155 degrees F. Once it is done, remove from the oven and carefully remove the loaf from the tin. Place on a baking sheet.
4. Place the loaf on the baking sheet back in the oven under a low broil. Broil for about 5 minutes, or until edges are browned.
5. While loaf is baking, roughly chop the potatoes and add them to a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and allow to boil until potatoes are soft – usually 15-20 minutes, depending on potato size. Once they are soft enough to easily poke with a fork, strain the water. Mash the potatoes with the almond milk, ghee, and salt and pepper. Adjust almond milk and ghee as needed for desired consistency.

Cheesy Jalapeno Cornbread (Gluten Free)

Cheesy Jalapeno Cornbread (Gluten Free)

I love eating chili with cornbread, especially spicy and cheesy jalapeno cornbread. Sometimes I like eating cornbread just on it’s own! It is also great with barbeque. Jalapenos are plentiful in the garden during the summer so this is a great way to use those
