Recipe of the Month: New Year, New Menu

December 30, 2018 Uncategorized

With about six weeks under your slightly bigger belt of eating, drinking, and being merry… it’s time to buckle down and get healthy, starting next year of course (Wink! Wink!).  So what is it that you’re trying to eliminate?  Sugar, wheat, dairy… all of the above?  Going without these things can have tremendous health benefits and can still be tasty, we promise!

Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls – gluten free

The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies – gluten free

Italian Chicken Sausage and Veggies – yes, most sausage has gluten, but not this one!

White Chocolate Almond Raspberry Cake – gluten free

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies – gluten and dairy free

The Creamiest Vegan Mac and Cheese – dairy free

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie – dairy free

Molten Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake – Keto (low-carb, no sugar)

Pull-Apart Cinnamon Rolls – no gluten here

Ooey Gooey Butter Cake – Keto

The above suggestions are treats, but if you want to get super serious about your health, get outside on your grill and sizzle up some lean meats and veggies.  Heck you can even grill up some peaches for a sweet surprise.  See?… living outside is better (and better for you)!

Have a project in mind? We work throughout the Houston and Dallas - Fort Worth areas.

Our Customers Love Us

We worked with Mark, who came to us with plans and fully explained the costs, materials, timeline, and talked about the construction methods. The project was well organized, with a new crew arriving once each stage of construction was completed. I kept a photo record of it, which was fun and friends are wowed by the timeline. I completely recommend Texas Custom Patios.
