Sort of Stroganoff

Who doesn’t love a hearty dish like Beef Stroganoff on a cold fall or winter day? I know I do! Last winter I just had to do without; we didn’t have enough safe foods in mine or Zac’s diet to make such a delicious dinner. But this year, well, I have … Continue reading

I Hate Leaving My Kids

July worked really well for my work schedule, in the end. Even if I hadn’t called out sick, I only would have worked 8 days total. Five of those days, though, started last Wednesday. I didn’t get home until almost 2:00a.m. Sunday night/Monday morning, and I am still  exhausted from … Continue reading

The Chicken Trial

Saturday we did the scariest thing we’ve done since the first food trial last summer. We fed Zac chicken. I knew it was coming up; we’d decided that if the reintroduction of cucumbers went well, we would call them a pass on Friday and start chicken on Saturday. I knew this. … Continue reading

Frugal Fridays – Stretch A Chicken

I know, I know, this isn’t exactly a new idea. But it’s quite brilliant at stretching your budget, and therefore earns a spot on the Frugal Friday roster. Make your chicken work, baby! Take every little part of it and make it squawk for mercy from the relentless stretching you … Continue reading

Cilantro Lime Chicken Skewers

Now that summer is in full swing, one thing we’ve started up in the Summers household is using The Grill. I love the grill because Darrel is in charge of grilling (less work for me) and other than wadding up the foil and throwing it away there are no dishes … Continue reading

Dairy, Egg & Gluten Free Chicken & Rice Casserole

Well, it’s been a little serious here lately, what with probiotic trials, paper eating, and Mommy Meltdowns, so I’m lightening it up a bit with a new recipe today! When Jed was first diagnosed with MPI (Milk Protein Intolerance) I struggled mightily in the kitchen.  ALL of my limited cooking … Continue reading

Vegan Cheese Quesadillas

I had to share this with you!  This was dinner for the boys last night: Pretty unremarkable looking, I suppose…until you find out that these quesadillas were made with homemade vegan cheddar that TASTES GOOD!!! I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but I cannot.  The brilliant mind … Continue reading

Cilantro-Lime Crock Pot Chicken

One thing I figured out early on in my elimination diet is that I’m basically eating a modified (and greatly limited) Paleo Diet. I’m not convinced that strictly Paleo is the way to go, but I can’t argue that grains (specifically wheat) and sugar are poison for my body! Consequently, … Continue reading

Chicken Hash

Years ago I found a recipe for something called “Chicken Hash” in a magazine.  I never actually made it, but I saved it because it looked really good. With this dual-elimination-diet-thing going on in my house, I’m scrambling like mad to find edible meals to serve my family.  (Delicious is … Continue reading
