Buttermilk Dill Chicken Tenders

I wanted ranch flavored chicken. I wanted it so bad I could taste it in my head. I have expiramented with making my own ranch powder mixes before. I have used numerous recipes that claimed to taste like Hidden Valley packets but none even came close. I have tried my own spice combinations and still that amazing ranch flavor eludes me. I am beginning to think that the chemicals and ingredients with long names are what makes it taste so good.

On my latest quest for ranch flavored powder I came up with these yummy chicken tenders. I call them buttermilk dill because they too were just not ranch flavored. They were however amazingly good. I love Saco buttermilk powder. I use it in my coconut flour buttermilk biscuit for one. Now I have a new go  to chicken recipe and a new use for my buttermilk powder. Alan says he wants this chicken as often as I am willing to make it. Try it and then tell me about your homemade ranch successes and/or failures in the comments section below.

Gluten Free Raw Cookie Dough Bites For Ice Cream

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls For Ice Cream

I have been craving cookie dough ice cream ever since I became a celiac. I finally came across some made by So Delicious. It is dairy free and gluten free and has the most incredible cookie dough chunks I have ever had! I ate the entire pint in one sitting. The pint cost about 5.50 which is way out of my price range for a pint of ice cream. I wanted to save my money and buy it again, but then I had a better idea.

Gluten Free Copycat COCO Wheats

COCO Wheats hold a special place in my heart. To me they come with a sense of freedom. I took a risk and moved states away with not much money and only one friend who needed a roommate at the age of 19. One of my first breakfasts cooked by myself in my shiny new tiny apartment was COCO Wheats.
