Raspberry Black Bean Dip

This recipe is a tribute to the best appetizer from the best college town bar in the world (ok, I may be biased, about the dip thing and the college thing). This dip is my best re-creation of So Long Saloon’s in Manhattan, Kansas. So Long’s Raspberry Black Bean Dip is one of my favorite things to eat in Manhattan. They serve this in a piping hot little skillet and it is delicious!

Homemade Pantry Staples

Get out your mason jars to make these homemade pantry staples (all gluten free and unprocessed)!

One of the things that has been the most difficult and the best thing about going gluten free and trying to eat whole foods, has been all of the little things that you don’t think about. Things like chicken broth or cream of chicken soup. Have you ever looked at the ingredient list for the taco seasoning packet or cream of chicken soup? All of these items can be made in a flash and with items that you probably have in your fridge or pantry.

Here are a few recipes for staples that I find myself preparing frequently. These are all recipes that I’ve tested and think are just as good if not better for the over-processed grocery store find.
