Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a MAJOR sweet tooth but when it comes to baking anything it has to be 100% gluten free since my son will be eating it as well. I mean what kind of mom would I be if I made cookies and didn't let him have any? Since I started baking/cooking gluten free I have tried several different kinds of gluten free flours and several different gluten free desserts. Some of them have been amazing, some have been okay and some have been straight up nasty! When it comes to gluten free baking, using the right flour makes a big difference in how well something will turn out. My favorite is Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Mix. I personally feel it is the closest tasting to regular flour as possible and even when my hubby has taken banana bread muffins to work people never realize they are gluten free when they try them! I do, however, like to take the easy route when it comes to desserts since I am a far better cook than I am a baker. These gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are perfect for when you want something sweet last minute, when you just don't feel like measuring out 20 different things or if you're like me and baking is hit or miss. With just 4 simple ingredients these cookies take no time at all. If you're a peanut butter cup lover as much as we are then you'll love these! 


Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup peanut butter (best to NOT use all natural peanut butter here)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
  • dash of vanilla extract (optional)
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray non stick cooking spray to cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. 
  3. Using a hand mixer, blend the peanut butter, egg and sugar over low speed until well combined. 
  4. Fold the mini chocolate chips into the batter. 
  5. Scoop cookie dough from bowl and roll into approximately 2 inch balls. This batter should make a baker's dozen (13 cookies). 
  6. Using a fork, press down on each ball of cookie dough in a criss cross pattern to slightly flatten them. 
  7. Place cookie sheet into oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes or until just cooked through. (Baking times may vary depending on your oven, altitude, etc. Watch your cookies closely. If you over cook them they will be crumbly.)
  8. Remove from oven and let cool. Serve and enjoy!

Kid's Bathroom Makeover on a Budget!

Remodeling can be SO expensive! I sometimes feel the saying "champagne taste on a beer budget" 100% applies to me. Being the HGTV junkie that I am, I watch all of these people say they're doing things "on a budget" and think their "budget makeover" is my "champagne taste". Even though I do like the nice things and there are a lot of things I don't think you should skimp on the quality, it is definitely possible to have nice things and not pay an arm and a leg for them. Shopping the clearance section at home improvement stores is one of the ways we save a lot of money when doing projects. You might not get exactly what you initially wanted but as long as you have an open mind and a general idea of your design you'll be able to find what you need and sometimes it'll be even better than your original plan.

The biggest way to save money on any remodel is to do as much as you can yourself. Paying a contractor or handyman adds up quick.…

Fall Freezer Meal Plan

I’m back with another freezer meal plan...

Hey y’all! I know I’ve been slacking the past couple of months with posting but I’ve been SO busy! I went back to school full time, have two toddlers, bought 40 acres and some goats, trying to get used to my hubby’s new work schedule and still trying to finish projects in our fixer upper. When all of the chaos really hit I slacked on my freezer meal prep and let me tell you we all felt it! Freezer meals allow us to eat healthy(ish) meals and stops us from making poor food choices.

The best way to save money with meal prepping is to incorporate several meatless meals and try to double, triple or even quadruple recipes. You’ll be buying in bulk which will often save you money! As always, I recommend labeling your storage bags with the names and ingredients for each recipe so prepping will go faster.

Alright enough chitter chatter...here it is!

Back to School Freezer Meal Prep

Well y'all its about that time...schools back in session! Now my little ones aren't of school age yet but my stepson and nieces are. School in the south starts much earlier than we do here in Wyoming and many of the counties have already begun classes. Now I know it is a relief to get the kids back in school and out of your hair, regardless of whether you're a working or stay at home parent. But things can get stressful when it comes to making sure you have a healthy(ish) meal on the table every night when there's work, school, extra curricular activities, etc. 

Don't fret! I have got you covered with 30 freezer meals you can prep in a day and be set for the entire month. I chose 10 meals and repeated each meal 3 times. This means you'll be eating the same meal 3 times in a month BUT repeating the meals makes the prep go faster AND it is cheaper because you can buy certain things in bulk. If you don't like having the same meal more than once per month you ca…
