I made that! French Onion Soup 

So I have been making bread lately and if you follow me on Instagram you will know it’s a thing for me right now I just can’t stop. A new loaf made every weekend. But with warm bread comes the thought of soup. We had a very cool Saturday and it felt like Soup weather. I had learned a while back that my husband’s favorite Soup was French onion. In searching for Soup to make this weekend I remembered I had a French bistro cook book and figured it would have something good! I of course found what I hope is an authentic recipe for onion soup. 

I gathered my ingredients according to the recipe above and went to work. 

After you have made your soup you have to assemble the dish. I didn’t have my ramekins (they are in storage) but I had some oven safe Pyrex. 

I toasted the homemade potato garlic bread and then cut to fit the soup bowls and topped the whole thing with shredded Swiss cheese. 

Now you are supposed to put this under the broiler until the cheese is brown and bubbly unfortunately these dishes aren’t safe for the broiler so I just put the oven up as high as safe for the cookware and watched it closely until the cheese was melted. 

The soup was a hit and I got the seal of approval from both my guys. I will be making this dish again. 

What did you make this weekend? 



Gluten free Stuffing and such 

For Try-it Tuesday I wanted to share with you all one of the new recipes I tried for Thanksgiving. I am going to be honest and tell you I didn’t take near enough pictures at Thanksgiving and I am fighting a horrible migraine so this is going to be a short post. But as I was saying stuffing…

Stuffing and mashed potatoes are probably my Thanksgiving staples next to the Parade! I didn’t know how to survive without stuffing and I was scared to try. So I started scouring the Internet for recipes and ideas. I found a recipe called – Awesome Sausage Apple Cranberry Stuffing on allrecipes.com and decided that sounded yummy and different and gluten free bread could be used without too much notice by my family! 

The only change to the recipe I made was using sage sausage instead of regular turkey sausage and gluten free bread instead of the regular white and wheat it called for. I did not stuff the turkey but baked it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit covered and then 15 minutes uncovered. 

Here is the link to the recipe  Awesome Sausage Apple and Cranberry Stuffing  
It was a hit! My fiancé has asked for me to make it again for Christmas dinner and I will gladly oblige. And now for some random Thanksgiving pics I do actually have! And yes these were two different days we had back to back Thanksgiving with all of our family! It was awesome and I am blessed beyond words. 

Wait is that my wine or yours?

This is the best banana pudding ever and I will definitely be sharing this recipe for holiday events to come! 

My little boy is growing up too fast! Oh the mustache!
