July is the month to celebrate the French Fry! Did you know that? French Fries can be made out of vegetables other than potatoes. I’ve been serving up a variety of French Fries to the family for about two weeks practicing different types of fries. Turnip fries, rutabaga fries, sweet potato fries and the beloved potato fry. You can find my recipes for these fries by reading my article about French Fries over at My Life With Food Allergies. Click here to learn how. Also shared at Allergy Free Wednesday.
We eat with our eyes first. That is why I’m hesitant to post the below picture. It is not the most appetizing looking meal. However, in this case a picture doesn’t say 1000 words. To be honest, I got eye rolls when I put this on the table. But I soon got, “wow, this is really good” and clean plates at the end of the meal. This Cuban Rice and Beans meal can be lumped into the “comfort food” category. Seriously, it has that down home, satisfying feeling. Another plus….it is cheap to make. After all, black beans are really … Continue reading
I’m dreaming of warmer temps. And grilling. And picnics. So I decided to have an indoor picnic. With my indoor George Foreman grill. Enter: turkey burgers. These are so easy! And fast! In fact, this has already debuted on the blog….back when I was a newbie blogger. I think this is worth repeating though. Who doesn’t love a fast and easy meal now and then? You can find the original recipe and article here. That article goes into much more depth. It’s worth a read. Serve these turkey burgers on a bun of choice. Or top with salsa and eat … Continue reading
Every once in a while you just need to have fried food. I am generally a very healthy eater so frying chicken tenders a few times a year is quite the indulgence for me. And since it is so rare, I figure it’s not so bad. Actually, I think indulging like this is a good thing. Maintaining a healthy diet free of so many categories of food can sometimes be overwhelming. So treating oneself gives oomph to plug on. I have made these fried chicken tenders probably every 4 months for a couple years now. I thought it was time … Continue reading
I made Savory Squash Soup yesterday and it was delish. If you have not tried it yet, by all means….go, print out the recipe. You will love the soup even if you are not a big squash person. And as always, when I cooked the squash for the soup I had leftovers. I actually plan it that way. I buy a bigger squash so that I will have leftover squash. I was going to make Not Your Mama’s Chocolate Shake, but I didn’t have ripe bananas. Don’t you hate it when you want to make something, only to find out … Continue reading
Fall is knocking on our door and I’m ready to start making soups and stews again. In fact I made this stew last night and it was good. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. One of my favorite soup recipes from childhood is a chili recipe that requires a can of condensed tomato soup. I started making my own condensed version about 4 years ago. I took these pictures back in 2012 and am just now getting around to sharing it. You’ll need oil, starch, spices, milk (dairy free or not), and tomato paste. Heat oil on stove … Continue reading
Can you believe I have not had a soda in a year!? I cut out corn and artificial sweeteners about a year ago, so that means no soda since they are all made with either high fructose corn syrup or aspartame/Splenda. (Well, except Zevia, but that stuff is expensive!) I never was a huge soda drinker anyway, so it really wasn’t that big of deal. But then…. I had a garage sale back in August. Those are a lot of work, and by the end of the day, I was tuckered out and in no mood to cook. We have … Continue reading
I love garlic. I use it in a lot of dishes. Today I made a Garlic Lover’s Hummus. Garlic is an herb with endless health properties. It’s good for the heart, blood pressure, keeping cholesterol in check, is an anti-fungal, may reduce the chance of developing Alzheimer’s and much, much more. Better yet, it makes food DELICIOUS! If you do not care for lots of garlic, then you may be interested in this hummus recipe. Also shared at Allergy Free Wednesday. Real Food Wednesday. Garlic Lover’s Hummus From: Peggy of Allergy Free Test Kitchen Ingredients: 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and … Continue reading
What if I told you that you could make ice cream not only without milk, but without dairy free milk too? And what if I told you it would be rich and creamy?

With the pie filling having no added sugar it is super healthy too! What more could you want? Anyone could make this it is so easy! And there are many people without food restrictions that … Continue reading
Every vegetable deserves a chance to shine. Today it is the mighty, little brussel sprouts turn! Basically a mini cabbage, the brussel sprout is a health boon boasting tons of vitamin A and C and beta carotene. They also contain protein and fiber. Sadly, they somehow get a bad rap. And I used to be one of those who wouldn’t eat them. But one thing I have learned about vegetables. It’s all about how you cook them. Cook them wrong and you will get a bad result. Cook them right and you will get a delicious vegetable. Follow the recipe … Continue reading
