This is a gluten-free, grain free version of almond crusted tuna steaks. It’s a tasty main dish for a fancy dinner, yet it’s very simple and doesn’t take a lot of prep time. It’s a family favorite for when we want to splurge on tuna steak!

Homemade Frappuccino

It’s really no secret that I live a significant way from a legitimate coffee shop.  I live in Rural America.  So, when I get a craving for a iced coffee drink on “one-of-those-days”, I have to improvise.  Today was one of those days.  I mixed this up this afternoon. Made with all natural ingredients and sweeteners, it’s actually a yummy coffee drink that I can drink without regrets. :-)



Several hours or overnight from when you want to make the frappuccino, make some strong coffee.  Pour into ice trays and freeze.  Blend coffee ice cubes, milk, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth.  Pour into cold glasses and serve.

Cheddar Biscuits

These biscuits are light, flaky and full of cheesy goodness.  It is our family’s favorite “soup bread”. Someday, when I get my sourdough starter “restarted”, I shall post the sourdough version I came up with. It was delightful!

HEAT oven to 450ºF.
MIX first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in Cheddar. Add milk; stir until mixture forms soft dough.
PLACE on lightly floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times or until smooth. Pat out dough into 6-inch square. Cut into 9 squares; place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheet.
BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until golden brown.
