Just a Couple of Yummy Recipes...

Here are 3 of my all time favorite recipes. I love that I can just change the flours, butter, and milks and make it GF/CF for the little's. Even GF/CF these recipes are YUMMY!!! They get thumbs up all around! :)

Pumpkin Pancakes
These taste like pumpkin pie. The little's scarf them up! LOL!

2 cups pure canned pumpkin
6 egs
1 cup flour
2/3 cup milk
6 TBS brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
4 TBS butter

Combine all ingredients except the butter and stir in a large bowl. Add butter to skillet and then add batter. Enjoy!

Turkey Chowder
I found this recipe at the Urban Homemaker website back in 2005 and we've enjoyed it many, many times over the years. I made a HUGE pot of this last week and had enough for dinner and several lunches, shared some with my parents, and had enough to freeze 2 containers!

2 Cups sliced carrots
3 Cups water, turkey broth or canned chicken broth
1 large floret of broccoli or 1 -10 oz box of broccoli
1 Cup onion
1/2 Cup sliced celery
1 tsp salt
1/2 Cup ground oat flour (take rolled oats and blend into flour)
2 Cups milk or dairy subsitute
6 oz Swiss Cheese, grated (I have never used swiss cheese but have used cheddar in the past. Did not include cheese this time at all and it was still wonderful!)
1 1/2 Cups diced turkey

Combine carrots, broth, onions, celery, broccoli and salt. Boil over medium heat. Simmer 10 minutes. Bring to boil again and gradually stir in the oat flour, stirring constantly.
Simmer 10 minutes until lumps disappear. Reduce heat. Add milk and turkey. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese. Serves 4-6

Pasta e Fagioli Soup
I'm not much of a recipe follower. I usually just wing it and end up always adding my own touches. This soup is so flexible in that anything I've added to it over the years just makes it taste even better! So let your creative side thrive and add your favorite things.

1 lb. ground turkey
1 carrot
1 onion
1 celery stalk
2 cloves garlic

In a large stock pot brown turkey and veggies. When meat is no longer pink add:
1 29 oz can crushed tomatoes
5-6 cups broth of your choice
2 15 oz cans great northern beans (mash one can - adds thickness)
1 15 oz kidney beans or black beans or whatever kind suits your fancy
1 tsp thyme
1 TBS basil
Simmer over medium heat covered for 20 minutes.
If desired you may now add 1 cup small pasta (we've never added the pasta)
Simmer 10 minutes until pasta is tender.
