Roast Sweet Potato Cubes

I was going to post my recipe for Sweet Potato and Chorizo Hash last night but we got home from vacation and there was mysteriously bird poop all around the inside of the house.  Where's the bird? No idea (frightening). Anyways, so the hash recipe will come soon enough, until then, here's a super simple recipe that's a great base for a bunch of recipes I make all of the time (see the list below - includes the hash I will be making soon). All of them are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut … [Read more...]

IMG_20151122_153351

Do you like celery root? I LOVE it but oddly, I never ate it until a few years ago.  Now we eat it all the time.  This is one of my favorite side dish recipes. I started making it a few years ago when my husband decided to go primarily nightshade free (although he still eats tomatoes and peppers occassionally - apparently potatoes effect his joints the most). We were looking for a "mashed potato" substitute that was not only nightshade free, but also gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut … [Read more...]

I've been a bit MIA since Thanksgiving (other than some cookie posts)....didn't mean to I promise. I was neck deep in garland, and LED Christmas lights with a full fridge (and I mean FULL! ….Turkey, two whole chickens, green beans for an allergen free green bean casserole, and more) when I decided that I was going to help my father-in-law do an elimination diet.  He's had a multitude of health problems for years and I can just tell a lot of them are related to food intolerances. Over the last … [Read more...]
