  So, I had a lot of hot dogs in my freezer (I bought too many when they were on sale, ha ha), and I had some leftover pizza sauce sitting in my fridge that I didn’t want to go bad.  Therefore, Pizza Dogs!     Today’s recipe is one I found in a few different places:  here, here and here.  I took those and adjusted them to match what I had on hand.  You can totally do the same.

Gluten Free Crunchy Chicken Bites 2 comments
Crunch to the crunch, baby.   I love a good crunch to my chicken “nuggets”.  It’s something I had to give up over the summer when I started on my anti-inflammatory diet.    Well, in the last 2 months I’ve been allowed to slowly add new foods back into my diet, one at a time.  And while nuts are allowed, they just weren’t giving me the classic crunch I was looking for.           So I cheated.   […]

Gluten Free Quinoa Crusted Chicken 2 comments
This is a quinoa-crusted chicken that is perfect for those that are gluten, dairy, peanut, or sugar free. I discovered this recipe over at The Baking Beauties, and I adapted it for my own needs, since there are a few ingredients in the original recipe that I have to avoid.  I’ll share my adapted recipe below.     SO good, seriously!  When my 7-year old heard the word “quinoa”, he told me twice, “don’t forget Mom, that I don’t like […]

Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa - Paleo, Gluten Free and AIP friendly!
This Anti-Inflammatory Diet I’ve been on (as part of a treatment plan my doctor put together for me) has forced me to think outside the box when it comes to meals….which, if I’m honest, is probably a good thing! What is the anti-inflammatory diet?  It’s basically a diet designed to cut any foods that are known to cause inflammation out.  My diet has been personalized based on my test results and right now I am NOT allowed to eat any […]

Gluten Free Indian Fry Bread - So Amazingly Good!!
I remember going to local carnivals and smelling the delicious fry bread to go with Navajo tacos as a kid…and as an adult.  When I was younger, I never ate them because “we weren’t there to spend money”, and so you can bet the first time I was in charge of my own cash flow, I bought a Navajo Taco at the carnival.     Then, dang it, I discovered my inability to correctly process gluten, and I haven’t had […]

Gluten Free Indian Fry Bread (for Navajo Tacos)

When I first learned I had to give up gluten, I was pretty sure that meant I would also have to give up one of my favorite comfort foods:  chicken and dumplings.  For the first 2 years, I lived by that belief, and then a few months ago I came across a recipe for a gluten free version. I didn’t have all the ingredients listed in the recipe, but the thought of dumplings had already entered my heart, and I […]

Homemade Lemon Dill Dressing
Over the last couple of months, I’ve had a recurrence of some health issues I’d had back when I ate gluten.  I’m not eating gluten, and doctors haven’t been able to find anything, so I’m once again looking at my diet to see if I can heal myself.  I read The Virgin Diet: Drop 7 Foods, Lose 7 Pounds, Just 7 Days , and decided to follow it.  The idea behind the Virgin Diet is to eliminate the 7 foods […]
