These tigernut chocolate chip cookies are a uniquely delicious take on America's favorite homemade cookie. We first gave these a try for New Year's Eve, when we had friends with food allergies visiting. Since then we've made them a number of times using different sugars and different fats. The texture changes a bit, but all variations are tasty.
Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin
We enjoy this spaghetti squash au gratin recipe because it uses ingredients that we normally have on hand to make a yummy dish. The texture is rich and creamy, but with less carbs than scalloped potatoes.
My brother refers to spaghetti squash as “the tribbles of the garden”. When you have healthy plants, they can produce a LOT of squash. This year we had over 100 squash from one hill and a couple of volunteer plants. This left enough squash to share with the duckies, plus plenty to try out new recipes. Plant a whole package of seeds, and you may end up with enough squash to feed a small army.
Ground beef and wild rice casserole is an easy, one pot meal that goes together quickly. If you prefer, you can make homemade cream of mushroom soup and substitute for the soup concentrate and water. When I'm in a hurry, I use Pacific Organic Mushroom soup concentrate, which is gluten free and soy free. I use one BIG onion or several smaller onions. We love onions!
