Of course you are – everyone is always up for comfort foods, right?
This month’s theme for Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free was Comfort Foods. We had a small but mighty group of participants that definitely brought some comfort to our meals. I’m definitely going to try to incorporate one or two of these into my future meal plans.
If you missed out on this month’s event, check out Michelle over at Bakeshop 360 for April’s theme. She will be announcing soon!
Without further adieu, here they are!
Naomi of Straight Into Bed, Cakefree and Dried made these swoon-worthy Coffee and Walnut Cupcakes. I can’t wait to try out that frosting, as it sounds divine!
Kate of Eat, Recycle, Repeat made Scalloped Sweet Potatoes and Apples. This is such a unique spin on scalloped potatoes, and a combination I think would be lovely on a cold day!
Linda of The Gluten-Free Homemaker made a wonderful slow cooker version of Beans and Bacon. This is definitely something you could have simmering away all day while you’re out and about, only to come home to an amazing aroma.
Cam of Wheat-Free Mom made Chicken Pot Pie. Let me tell you, I strongly considered making a pot pie for this theme as well, but it looks like Cam really nailed it. That sauce bubbling over just a bit in her photos makes me hungry!
Michelle of Bakeshop 360 made a Chilly Day Chili full of peppers and butternut squash. I love squash in chili – it definitely ups the comfort factor, and in a healthy manner!
And lastly, I made a Turnip “No Potato” Salad with Grainy Mustard and Pickled Red Onions. I think if Linda made the beans, and I made this salad, and we volunteered someone to make barbecue, we’d have a Southern-style comfort food party for sure!
Thanks to all the participants! If you’re interested in participating in April, check out Michelle over at Bakeshop 360, as she will be announcing the theme!
