Halloween DIY: Taxidermy Rat Wall Hanging

Taxidermy Rat Halloween DIY Rat Finished

I started this post back in July...now here I am the day before Halloween posting a Halloween craft! Oh well, you'll be ready for it next year :). I made these last year, they're relatively quick (depending on how good of a painter you are) and they're really fun as haunted house, haunted mansion, or apothecary table decor! I've looked around and so far I'm the FIRST AND ONLY person who has made these - woo hoo for creativity! I'm sure that won't be the case after I publish and promote this … [Read more...]

Apple Cider Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Roast Squash

Apple Cider Glazed Pork Tenderloin; Gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free recipe

Two weeks ago I made this and told my dad about it.  Last week I decided I wanted to have him over for dinner and told him I was going to make a root vegetable pot roast. He said no....he wanted this :).  It's good enough to have once a week so that's fine with me! I love fall food! Apples, pork, squash, cider - this is the perfect autumn dinner. It will definitely be on the menu every year when the leaves start to change! It also happens to be naturally gluten free, soy free, dairy free, nut … [Read more...]

Italian Chicken with Green Beans and Potatoes

I don't really cook many SUPER EASY dishes. "What!?" you say.  I know, I'm crazy right? Not really, most of the super easy dishes I used to make were full of gluten, dairy, soy and all kinds of preservatives and nasty stuff. Think, throw some rice in a baking dish. Top with chicken breasts and some type of jiggly, creamy, full of msg canned "soup". It's not that I don't like to cook easy stuff. It just tends to take a bit more prep time to cook a meal without that junk.  I stumbled across this … [Read more...]
