Thank you to Pamela’s Products for sponsoring this post and giveaway.
In the last few weeks, I’ve read a bunch of articles and blog posts on the subject of home-cooked family dinners. The big question is: are they more pain than they’re worth? My opinion lies somewhere in the middle of that argument, as there are plenty of opinions to go around on both sides. I think it’s so, so important to sit down as a family as often as schedules allow to share a meal together. Sometimes we miss a day here and there. Is it always dinner? No. Sometimes it’s breakfast or lunch. But over all, we try, but we certainly aren’t perfect. In any case, I really enjoy sitting down with my family to discuss our day, whether it’s beginning or ending, without distractions. My kids relish the time with us too. This is especially important to me now that school is back in session. One common complaint about family dinners at home is that it takes too long to make something healthy. We are all busy, and that is true of some recipes. But not this one! As a kid, one of my favorite quick meals was my grandmother’s tamale pie. It was delicious and super easy to put together.I haven’t made it in years! Using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Cornbread and Muffin Mix, I recreated it for my family. And it’s even easier than my grandma’s recipe. This gluten-free tamale pie has a yummy filling made from two kinds of beans, corn, and salsa. Read on to see just how easy it is to make and to enter the Back To School giveaway.
