Gluten Free Shepard’s Pie

My next gluten free adventure in a quest to eat food that actually fills me up was to make a gluten free shepard’s pie.  I found the recipe at Gluten Free Goddess and since it looked pretty good I figured i’d give it a try.  I’m rather new cooking so some of the ingredients were a bit challenging to find at my local grocery store but I was able to find everything.   This dish isn’t the most attractive thing but I really wasn’t going for looks, just wanting to expand my rice and salad diet. :\  So, as I started gathering all the ingredients together and cutting veggies I think I was starving because I decided to double the recipe.  🙂  The whole process went pretty smooth although I had a few small issues since I decided to double things.  Mostly it was cooking the veggies.  Mental note: I need a bigger pan if I’m going to do that again.  A bit of overflow!  I’ll also skip the artichokes and use yeast instead of bouillon for the gravy.  I also added sea salt to taste in the other parts, potatoes and veggies and when adding the gravy in the end it over powered the dish a bit to much with salt.  Other than that I liked it and very filling! 🙂  Happy Fill-Me-Up food!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This was a fun little cooking project since I love chocolate chip cookies and absolutely needed to find a substitute from the “gluten versions”.  This is a mix made by Bob’s Red Mill and although the overall texture was slightly different than the wheat ones I actually like these better.  I found them a little sweeter too, although that could have been just this brands recipe.  Not an issue for me since I love the sweets 🙂

One thing i’m finding while making all my gluten free foods is my kitchen is totally not set up to make food.  I run back and forth a lot.  I think I need to re-organize the kitchen.  Anyways, this is them all baked up and ready to Om nom nom nom!
