Shepherd’s Pie – gluten and corn free

It has been quite a while since I have indulged in some comforting, stick-to-your-ribs shepherd’s pie. I used to be able to whip this dish up using store bought beef broth, but surprise, surprise…. There isn’t a brand, organic or otherwise, that is corn free. Every single box I picked up had “natural flavors”, caramel…

Instant Pot Orange Chicken

One of the best things that has ever happened for my kitchen was receiving an Instant Pot as a gift from my awesome mom. If you have never heard of this magical little gadget, then listen up; it will change your life. Well, your cooking life. It will do nothing to help pay the bills…

Roasted Red Pepper and Butternut Squash Hummus

There used to be a time that I could tolerate just about anything I put into my stomach. Once I hit my 30’s, though, all that changed. Suddenly everything was making me sick. Every. Thing. My body was falling apart. Come to find out, it was just the corn that is hiding in everything that…

Steak and Sweet Potato Baked Eggs

Leftovers are seriously the best. Why anyone would deny themselves the luxury of not having to make every single meal from scratch by throwing out leftovers is completely beyond me…. But in my circumstance I can’t have any pre-packaged anything, so if I want easy, I have to resort to leftovers.  For example, when I…

Wild Caught Tuna Salad

I am finally getting around to eating lunch now that it is a bit after 3…. Where did the day go?! I threw this tuna salad together using wild caught skipjack tuna, a Tbsp of homemade mayo made with free range organic eggs and avocado oil, a couple of Tbsp California Ranch olive oil, minced…

Getting my curry fix with this delicious coconut curry butternut squash soup.  Sorry, no specific recipe, but you can throw this together with puréed roasted butternut squash and sautéed onion, coconut milk, curry seasoning and Garam Masala. 

Baked eggs 

Baked eggs over leftover roasted butternut squash, baby kale, and sausage. Super easy to throw together, and bakes to perfection in 10 minutes.  

Sweet Potato and Zucchini Fritters

We have a major abundance of zucchinis happening over here. They kind of exploded in the garden. Trouble is, no one likes them aside from me, my toddler (sometimes), and my father-in-law! In an attempt to get rid of at least a quarter of one of these giant things, I made these delicious fritters. Believe…

Bacon Wrapped Dijon Chicken Bites

For my little corn intolerant toddler, foods get boring very quickly. The problem with this is that he is also very picky when it comes to trying new foods…. So I have to get very creative with familiar foods to get him to put it even remotely close to his lips. Chicken nuggets? Yeah, those…

Cheesy Broccoli & Bacon Quinoa Bites

Holy crap, I found cheese that my stomach doesn’t noisily reject. And it is at BJ’s, so I can get a lot of it for less than the usual fancy special cheese I am normally limited to. If you are corn intolerant like I am, then you know how much this means to me! Also,…

Lunch Time for the Toddler |corn free options

Just about every day my husband is home with us, he asks “what is that baby going to have for lunch?”. And, every single time,  my response is “whatever I find in the fridge”. That’s how it goes. With our food intolerances there is no popping down the road to grab some quick takeout. There…
