The Sneaky Chef: No-Nut Butter

I'm sure most of you are in the no-nut allowed group as is our family but let's face it, most of the no-nut butters just taste funny. I get that, it's an acquired taste if you will.

For sure, it is the closest taste to peanut butter without the peanuts that I have ever tasted. I gave some to my son and he said, "Wow! That tastes good!" Seriously, … [Read more...]

Guess Who is Gluten Intolerant?

Well, it happened. I've been dealing with 6 weeks of incredible sickness, mostly because of infection (and inflammation) of my colon.

This is an easy way to dress up carrots, no fuss, just easy and good. Enjoy! [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:58]     … [Read more...]
