I’ve been liking making cookies in a bar form for a deep dish cookie, I like the silicone trays so the cookie pops out easily and the edges do not get hard and crispy. You certainly can make these cookies as drop cookies in any size, just vary your cook time. These are sugary, richContinue reading “Gluten free dairy free chocolate chip cookie bar”

Multitasking your dreams until synchronization
* Ben’s dreamy *
Quite literally, he lives in the clouds, it’s his determination to bring dreams to life that makes him special.
He’s a believer that if you have multiple spinning plates at the same time they are become synchronized at *some* point.
He says, you have to focus on certain plates for a little and then move to a otter plate, bouncing around isn’t a bad thing….sometimes It feels like we don’t get anywhere because projects don’t get 💯 finished before moving to the next…
But it’s because of seasons, sometimes you can’t finish a project because of a derail like a tractor breaking, instead of throwing in the towel, he moves to the next project, while the tractor gets fixed.
Ben’s also *dreamy* because look at that smile when he is doing what he loves, building. He’s a carpenter by trade and by-goodness, he is building a photo studio in our barn + a boutique to be open at @simplycountryranch + @simplystainedshop

GF/DF BBQ Chicken Pizza
Ben has not enjoyed pizza since he became GF/DF in 2018… today was the day!
It has been a challenge to find the best ingredients that make it feel like the “real deal.”
Let’s be frank…there’s not many substitutions for melted delicious cheese or fluffy crust, enter, the Simply Country pizza creation!
Let’s take a bite!
en believes he is the master, so we had a “build off” there’s a balance of having the right amount of sauce, cheese, topping ratio, I totally agree, but he is competitive… what about you, are you a total cheese person, lots of sauce? tell us in the comments!
The taste test reveals…. a Simply Country Favorite!
Let me start by saying, INVESTMENTS. We saved and saved for this equipment, when we first wanted to start getting back into fitness, we chose equipment that could be versatile.
We stuck with MAJOR body parts and items we felt would be core work outs.
There are so many opportunities we felt could happen within this building we decided to expand the gym from our own personal gym to adding additional equipment. You don’t need EVERYTHING to get started with a health journey, but it was asked by our audience to share what works for us and our opinion. I hope this gives you an idea of the pieces of equipment, if you have additional questions please leave a comment or reach out on social! 🙂 None of these links are affiliate.
Gluten & Dairy Free Orange Sauce Recipe
It’s all about that sauce! It’s been a challenge to find sauces that do not include gluten in the seasoning. Ben is the master of making his own recipes to make the dish complete!
I am not a cook, so if I can follow this recipe and recreate the magic, I promise you can do and create the best ORANGE SAUCE. Think of all the chicken dishes you can create with this!
Take an opportunity, you don’t know where it’ll lead.
That doesn’t bother me because when I started ranching I had to google terms like, “what a HEIFER was,” (cow that hasn’t had a baby) and a “STEER” (castrated male) but the point is,
when you SHOP LOCAL you get real things, REAL people framing your art, real highlands captured through the lens of my iPhone that live here on our @simplycountryranch
