I need to down some yummy soup right now, because I’ve been sick (really, really sick) all week.  This recipe from  Amanda at A Few Shortcuts sounds so good to me that I’m sending my daughter out for missing ingredients.  I love the Pasta E Fagioli soup at Olive Garden so much – it has the perfect balance of ingredients. Because Amanda has had such great recipes in the past, I expect this Copy Cat Olive Garden Pasta E Fagioli version from her to be as good as the original. My daughter better get home soon and she better have garlic bread with her!

CaptureKrusteaz has a new line of gluten free mixes that I was so excited to try out! I had to develop a recipe for the Krusteaz Gluten Free Blogger Bake-Off! They sent 2 of each mix which was good – I made each one to taste them and to try to inspire me to come up with an idea for my creation!

The new gluten free Krusteaz mixes are:

Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancake Mix
Start your day off on the right foot… or the left. Just as long as it’s with our light, fluffy, and tasty Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancakes that are made with real sweet cream buttermilk.

Gluten Free Honey Cornbread Mix
Enjoy your next meal with a side or perfection. Gluten Free Honey Cornbread has sweet corn flavor in each and every bite. The best part is, it’s made with real honey!

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownies are moist, flavorful, and bursting with chocolaty flavor. They are also loaded with chcolate chips to complete every chocoholic’s dream!

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Mix
We pride ourselves on our delicious, tender muffins. So, it should come as no surprise that our Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins are everything you want… and more!

I know a lot of triplet moms with older triplets who have gluten issues.  They talk a lot about what to make for their GF kids.  So I knew I wanted to make something kid friendly and the honey cornbread mix is what caught my eye!

I made Gluten Free Corn Dog muffins! So much fun and so easy! Here is the recipe, it makes 24 muffins – we each ate 2 and thought that was a good serving size:

I love cinnamon.  Really love it.  Just recently I started putting cinnamon on my peanut butter sandwiches (ok, quirky, but it’s really good)!  Amanda at A Few Shortcuts created her new recipe to have on Christmas morning, and I’m going to be right there with her.  Cinnamon Roll Cake is moist, yummy and chock full of cinnamon-there’s nothing like a nice thick swirl of cinnamon to wake up to in the morning.  This cake will be great for the holidays and beyond.  Also a great item for potlucks, for company and for when you have the house to yourself!

Amanda at A Few Shortcuts has another new holiday (or anytime) recipe! Brownie Peppermint Biscotti uses a gluten free box brownie mix, gluten free pancake mix, and white chocolate chips and peppermints.  Mix the first 2 ingredients up with 2 eggs and 1/2 cp oil, for the 1st step to biscotti.  Cool, cut and re-bake to get the cookies.  Cool and drizzle with white chocolate and crushed peppermints for the decorations.  So festive and perfect with a hot cup of tea (my favorite beverage) or coffee for a great holiday treat!

A Few Shortcuts Weekly Recipe: Christmas Brownies

by Pennie on November 30, 2014

Baking is best during the holidays.  Everything is festive and yummy and happy! Amanda at A Few Shortcuts created another great 3 ingredient recipe! Christmas Brownies uses a box brownie mix, white chocolate chips and candy canes.  As I was looking at this picture wondering why she made it in a round pan instead of a square, I realized the wedge is the shape of a Christmas tree!  If you add a few drops of green coloring into the melting chips before frosting and then a star at the tip it would make a great plated dessert!
