Dinner Tonight: Sausage, Pepper and Onion One-Pot

I was looking for some good old fashioned comfort food to do for dinner tonight, and stumbled across this recipe for Sausage and Peppers done in  a single pot.  Using a single pot for every stage of this process means you don't lose any of the flavor from the veggies or the pork fat that renders out of the sausage.  It all stays and layers to make an amazing dish.  The only change I made was to use a nice belgian white ale in place of the white wine (Fat Boy's don't keep white wine around the house).  Nice crisp full flavors without a lot of clean-up afterwords, now thats what I call Fat Boy Heaven.

Dinner Time - Gluten Free French Onion Soup...with a twist!

I love french onion soup, and this seemed like just the day to enjoy it.  I modified a recipe from AllRecipes.com to fit my tastes and our dietary needs, and it came out fantastic!

Adding the apples and bourbon gave it a very complex flavor profile, and using cheddar cheese to the top really helps set the combination of flavors off.
