Recipe Collection: Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

I love sun-dried tomatoes.  Once I had a large glass jar of them packed in olive oil (which is how you should buy them if at all possible) that I needed to use up.  It was summer and I had fresh tomatoes, too.  I created this sauce and tossed it with some angel hair pasta.  It’s a light, flavorful and delicious sauce!

Recipe Collection: Chicken in Cream Sauce

I invented this one night when I was craving a creamy, saucy chicken.  It’s delicious!  It can be modified to be GAPS-friendly by using ghee instead of butter and coconut milk, and simply uncovering to reduce the sauce (before adding milk) instead of using flour.  Serve it over rice, mashed potatoes, or, for GAPS, steamed cauliflower.

Recipe Collection: Orange Sherbet

Since we’ve been no-sugar, I’ve been seeking some type of “dessert” I can eat. I tried a super simple recipe for orange sherbet and it was “okay.” I decided to scrap that and try again. The second attempt is what I’ve posting for you today, and it is excellent! In fact, it tastes like an Orange Julius to me! So for those of you missing fast food…make some of this!!

Recipe Collection: Stuffed Mushrooms

When I was a teenager, we went to the Olive Garden to celebrate someone’s birthday and had stuffed mushrooms. I created this recipe after that experience in an attempt to copy those mushrooms. I later adapted it once we were dairy-free and it’s just as good that way. My father requested this dish at a recent holiday, it’s so good.

Making Jerky

Jerky!

This is a really great snack for us on our new diet. But when you buy it, it’s expensive, made from factory-farmed meat (often, not always…but if not it’s even more expensive!), and can contain sodium nitrite. No thanks!

Recipe Collection: Thanksgiving Recipes

A collection of favorite gluten-free, casein-free Thanksgiving recipes. If you’re not “free” of anything, feel free to use “real” bread or butter instead of coconut oil. Although I love the coconut oil so much I might use it even if we weren’t dairy-free!

Recipe Collection: Chicken Marinade

I love marinated chicken, but I never buy commercial marinades. They’re full of high fructose corn syrup and a lot of other unnecessary ingredients. So, I mixed up my own marinade. This is so yummy! It works to grill it, bake it, make sandwiches, add to salads, etc. We eat it at least once every couple of weeks.

Recipe Collection: Stuffed Peppers

We love stuffed peppers so much, we have them at least every couple weeks! Sometimes we even have them every week. These are kind of fattening (which is GOOD!) and very yummy.

I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything.  I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!
