Eight Days of Comfort & Joy...

Apart from the flurry that December brings, it’s a fantastic time to enjoy rich, cozy foods – think flavorful meat entrées, root vegetables, and elegant holiday dinners and desserts that look fancy but take only a little effort to get them to the table.

This month Wildtree brings you eight days of comfort and joy with the December Home-Cooked Holiday Cooking Collection and meal plan to give you healthy, nourishing dinners and incredible desserts to carry you through the end of the year.

Super nourishing dinners, healthy holiday-ish salad, cozy soup, s'mores inspired chocolate desserts…

Weeknight meals made easy...

Warm-up your house and the oven with Busy Day Lasagna – Flavor-filled and perfect for that busy day when you have tons of holidaying to do! Hearty Spaghetti Sauce Blend seasons tomato sauce combined with ground beef and onion, milk, and cream cheese for the delicious, flavorful sauce that’s baked into a creamy pasta casserole topped with mozzarella cheese to become bubbly and brown before serving.

I love this Meatball Skillet Bake recipe. You’ll start with a meatloaf meat mix (veal, pork, beef blend), or you can use just ground beef. Add eggs, milk, parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, minced garlic, and a few other seasoning staples with Hearty Spaghetti Sauce Blend to the meat for meatballs that are ‘outta this world. Cook up the meatballs in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat until browned on all sides. Remove the meatballs from the skillet. Using the same skillet, sauté the peppers and onion for about five minutes. Stir in a can of tomato sauce with a little more Hearty Spaghetti Sauce Blend and bring to a simmer. Return the meatballs to the skillet, gently toss them in the sauce. Cover with mozzarella cheese and then bake until the cheese melts, and the meatballs are cooked through ((165°F). Serve it with crusty bread for an easy Italian-inspired dinner. Now that’s a GOOD meatball!!

Light Up Your Lunch...

Light with a lovely cranberry flavor this classic sandwich for Cranberry Chicken (or Turkey) Salad couldn’t be more enjoyable! Grab that leftover turkey breast meat you froze from Thanksgiving or start from scratch by cooking up one-pound of chicken breast to make this yummy sandwich. After that, you’ll combine the chicken with grapes, celery, almonds and mix it all together with a Cranberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette and mayo dressing. Oooh, so tasty for lunch or dinner!

Meals for A Healthy Holiday...

Find comfort and joy in this low-stress dinner after a crazy, busy day. You’ll love this five-star recipe for Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Apples and Parsnip Puree!  And if you love surprises this time of year, the first delicious surprise you’ll unwrap for this recipe is the limited-time seasoning Herbes de Provence Blend. This aromatic blend lends a unique, delicious flavor to the pork chops that packs in flavor inspired by a region in Southern France known for its mixture of dried herbs. To make this dish, you’ll pan-sear the herb-coated pork chops until they form a beautiful brown crust on the outside and become succulent inside. Serve them with a sauce made with apple and shallot alongside a parsnip puree. But that’s not all. Above all, the real surprise is the nutritional punch you get from the apples, parsnips, and pork that makes the meal excellent for adding to your healthy diet and meal plan! Make sure you come back to get the recipe and read the post following the #CookingGfreeDeliciously Live later this month to learn about the nutrition and high-quality rich proteins you’ll get when eating this meal.

Christmas Eve is In The Bag (Pun intended)… Mark your calendar for December 23rd and join me on #CookingGfreeDeliciously Live to make this delicious Winter Scallop Salad. We’ll be making candied pecans, slicing up seasonal pears, tossing them with lettuce and Cranberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette, then pan-searing scallops to serve on top. After that, I’ll be revealing my holiday wine picks to pair with this tasty salad that’s perfect for an easy and elegant Christmas Eve dinner, a light holiday meal, or to serve as a starter salad to enjoy this New Year’s Eve.

Comforting Soup to Warm You Up...

Use the Instant Pot to make this Creamy Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup. Or you can cook up a potful on the stovetop in this bonus episode of #CookingGfreeDeliciously Live scheduled December 30th – Onion, carrot, celery, baby Bella mushrooms, and nutty-tasting wild rice flavored with Herbes de Provence Blend combine in a buttery, creamy milk sauce for a comforting mushroom soup with crumbled bacon and thyme. Make some this winter evening to warm up before cozying up with your favorite blankie and a movie!

S'mores Inspired Chocolate Desserts...

The best cookie EVER! Melty marshmallows, crunchy graham cracker, loaded into a chewy chocolate cookie with more S’mores flavor (and, especially with my addition of milk chocolate chips too!) – Believe me, life does not get much better! You’ll love this recipe for S’mores Cookies using our S’mores Dessert Blend (available for a limited time in the December Home-Cooked Holiday Collection).

Simple and luxurious, this S’mores Ganache Tart has all the flavor you love in classic S’mores in a grown-up dessert done holiday style! Made with heavy cream and dark chocolate and S’mores Dessert Blend simmered until melted and smooth, poured into a buttery graham cracker crust. When set, sprinkle it with flaky salt, and slice. Top it for serving with peaks of heavenly whipped cream flavored with more S’mores Dessert Blend – What else can I say but YUM, YUM, and YUM!! This easy chocolate tart will have everyone singing Hallelujah praises this holiday season!

A dazzling line-up of delicious eats...

Make the most of the season’s dazzling line-up of delicious eats for December from the Wildtree Home-Cooked Holiday Collection. Eat your fill of S’mores Inspired Sweet Eats* before the limited-time S’mores Dessert Blend is gone. Fall in love with our Herbes de Provance Blend for a salt-free multi-purpose seasoning to use for making wild game, braised, and pan-fried meats extra savory; try as a rub for grilling or give roasted root vegetables and mashed potatoes an extra oomph of taste. Most importantly, if you’re looking for more inspiration, peek through the filmstrip located at the top of every page on the site to discover more recipes for cooking GfreeDeliciously!

For those who cook and those who eat…

That wraps it up for this month’s Keto-Friendly Cooking Collection of eight recipes that help you explore just how simple & delicious keto cooking can be.

I hope you make them all. They’re super delish, and just because you’re eating healthy shouldn’t mean that you don’t get to feel like you’re sometimes splurging, so every one of these recipes let you put a check in that box too!

As always, I love helping you enjoy the satisfaction that cooking brings. Thanks for reading and supporting the companies I partner with, which allows me to create even more unique content and recipes for #CookingGfreeDeliciously. All opinions are always my own.

*Please Note: Not all of the recipes found at the G-Free Deliciously Wildtree Store site use strictly gluten-free ingredients or products. If you are celiac, gluten-intolerant, or following a strict gluten-free diet, be sure to substitute an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend in place of whole-wheat or gluten-containing flours. And, always check the ingredient labels, and swap out any products that may include wheat, barley, or rye for certified gluten-free versions when making recipes not explicitly tagged gluten-free.

G-Free Deliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Say please and thank you, LAUGH, Pray often, ENCOURAGE others, Be KIND, HONEST, HAPPY, Keep your PROMISES, Be GRATEFUL, Wash your hands, FORGIVE yourself and others, LISTEN, Have FAITH, Be CONFIDENT, Honor your parents, CHERISH your children and grandchildren, TREASURE your family, ABIDE in GOD’s love, Be POLITE, Guard your HEART, SEEK your purpose, FEED your mind, body and soul, Be HOPEFUL, Resist temptation, Lay your burdens down, TRUST your gut, CONNECT with nature, Know that GOD made you perfect just the way you are, SERVE others, LIVE to love, Be COURAGEOUS, Shine bright, OPEN your mind, RESPECT differences, HONOR your inner hunger, SING loud, Be PROUD of who you are, Practice PATIENCE, Never give up, WEATHER the storms of life, Say I love you, LOVE one another

  • I’ve traveled to 32 states in the USA where I’ve enjoyed the food, history, people and the local culture while visiting.
  • Among the states, I’ve lived in are Arizona, California, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
  • My favorite island is Maui.
  • I’ve also been to Canada and Mexico.
  • I rode horses as a kid, and barrel-raced.
  • I broke my neck when I was 18 and went to senior prom in a neck brace.
  • As a little girl, I grew up living next door to my grandma and grandpa on a small lake in rural southern Michigan.
  • The first thing I learned to cook was pancakes.
  • The craziest thing I ever made was mint-flavored green cupcakes when I was 13. My family didn’t like them much…

Call Me…

Throughout my life, I’ve called upon God through many of my troubles. Admittedly, some of those troubles have been of my own making, while others have been completely outside of my control. I’ve always thought that it’s a very good thing that God doesn’t distinguish between the troubles that we deserve and those that we don’t deserve.

Cream of Asparagus, Crab & Wild Rice Soup

Flexibility is one of Minnesota’s authentic wild rice soup’s strongest selling points. This wild rice soup recipe is made with asparagus, crab, and wild rice in a creamy soup broth – it is a soup that stretches the boundaries of Minnesotan tradition, offering flexibility to the cook who makes it.
