Homemade Gluten Free Waffle Cones // Ever tried making your own waffle cones? It's easy peasy and once you've made your own you'll never want to buy store bought again! This fantastic recipe is made without any refined sugar or refined flour! Absolutely delicious! | Tried and TastyA couple of weeks ago I shared with you my Nutty Salted Caramel Coconut Ice Cream recipe. If you don’t remember that, or haven’t seen it yet – you MUST check it out! I am continuing my quest to eliminate white flour and white sugar from my cooking (if you need convincing as to why you should too, you HAVE to watch Hungry for Change). While I wasn’t sure if it would work, I put my Waffle Cone Express Ice Cream Cone Maker to the test with this gluten free recipe. 
The results? AMAZING! I am already excited for summer… since it’s my favorite season. Now I’m even MORE excited to have this waffle cone recipe to carry me through. The next task will be to create more delicious ice cream, sherbet, and sorbet recipes to fill them with. That won’t be tough – I’m up for that challenge! Oh, and if you’re wondering how simple these cone are to make, they are crazy easy! Almost as easy as making a waffle. Only extra step is forming them around the cone (that came with the waffle maker). I will say though, because these are a healthier version, they don’t hold as strong as your typical cone will. So I would suggest eating them right away, dehydrating them for a few hours if you plan to store them longer than a day, or stacking them one on top of the other with the cone form in the center to help maintain the shape!

Slow Cooker Easy Indian Butter Chicken // If you have never tried Indian food, this is a MUST MAKE (next to Chicken Tikka Masala). It's made easy with the help of your slow cooker. Packed with flavor, your family will fall in love with the tasty bold flavors! Serve with basmati rice and garlic naan for a delicious traditional meal. | Tried and TastySteve and I have become known for the Indian food we make. Let me start over. Steve and I are known for our love of Indian food. More, Steve than myself, but I’m getting there. In fact, for our second date, Steve made homemade Indian food for me (Chicken Tikka Masala) and it was fantastic. Then, for my birthday a couple of months after we started dating, he took me to a local Indian restaurant for the first time. I immediately fell in love. It was fantastic. Since then, I can’t tell you how many times we’ve shared an Indian meal together. I even planned Steve’s surprise 30th birthday party a few years ago at a favorite Indian restaurant. Additionally, we’ve converted many friends to this delicious food – and now you can fall in love too! 

In this Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken, the flavors blend so well together. With the help of your slow cooker, you can make this before work and come home to a pretty fantastic dinner. The only out of the ordinary spice you will want to get will be garam masala (which is an Indian spice staple), along with cumin, turmeric and curry powder. We keep all of those on hand. You’ll also want to pick up some basmati rice because that’s the traditional rice you’ll find in the restaurants. Although this is not considered a healthy meal, it’s definitely a delicious meal that we don’t mind splurging our calories on every once in a while. The recipe makes enough to feed a crowd, or have leftovers if it’s just for your small family. Believe me, you will want leftovers!

100% Whole Wheat Biscuits // Made with wholesome ingredients, these whole wheat biscuits are perfect for any breakfast or brunch. Great with melted butter or coconut oil and a drizzle of raw honey! | Tried and TastyNow that you know How To Make Whole Wheat Flour, you can whip up a few cups and make these delicious biscuits. You also may be interested in my Whole Wheat Buttermilk Biscuits. Both are fantastic recipes. I’m a huge breakfast advocate and the healthier the better. These were perfect with my freshly made flour, I loved them with a little bit of butter and a drizzle of real maple syrup. So yummy, especially with scrambled eggs and turkey bacon!

I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, but I have LOVED my new Blendtec Designer 625 Blender! So very much.
