Wednesday Real Food Recipe – Toad in a Hole, with an Egg-Free Version

Toad in a Hole

I found out as I was writing this post that although I have been calling this dish “Toad in a Hole” for years and years, a true Toad in a Hole is actually a sausage dish. Huh, interesting!

We are babystepping into this whole real food thing, but I decided it was time to finish cleaning this up. I love this version even more, it turned out so yummy! I like to serve these with

Wednesday Real Food Recipe – Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

Marquis’s mom has always been able to make the most perfect, delicious dinner rolls. You really don’t need anything else to go with the meal, you just sit down with one (or two, or three) of those babies and enjoy.
