Strawberry Cheese Danish

Click here for recipe. 

This was a very yummy and very special Christmas morning breakfast. The only thing I did differently was I used strawberries, omitted the almonds, and used pre-made frozen gluten free pastry sheets.

Beef Tenderloin

Click here for recipe.

If you are like me, then trying a new recipe with an expensive piece of meat is very scary. So I took the leap this year and I'm so glad I did! This recipe for beef tenderloin is so amazing. It came out perfectly! I can't wait to make it again.  It made our Christmas dinner extra special!

Gluten Free Gravy

Gravy is always best when made from beef drippings. This was my first successful gluten free gravy.
