Woops, Grapevine Mills 

I had always wanted to try macarons. I had some when I was younger, but who appreciates anything when they’re nine? I always looked at them longingly, like donuts or cake. But, I didn’t realize until recently that they are traditionally made with Almond flour. So, imagine my surprise when last week I found a…

Crustless Pizza (Pizza Pie)

I made a crustless pizza last week and have been craving it ever since! So, I decided to make another one and actually show what I used and how much.  🙂 Three dollars worth of canned goods. I mixed the past and the diced tomatoes for the marinara. I love the taste of tomatoes, so…

Zucchini Lentil Pasta, Bird Eye Veggie Made

    I saw this on Walmart’s website and thought I was going to have a heart attack. I just HAD to try it! I haven’t had pasta in twleve years…here’s my chance! This. Is. AMAZING! It tasted like mac and cheese, or at least what I remember it tasting like when I was a…

Sesame Snacks, 99cent Ranch

I was really bad and hadn’t eaten for a couple of days. Literally, I hadn’t eaten anything at all and had scheduled when I could drink water. And water was all that I was drinking. I hadn’t even been drinking a bottle a day, for those days. I was trying to cut water weight for…

Literary teas

I am a big fan of Literary Teas. They are a company in Australia that blends teas based on authors and usually ones that go well with their most well known works. I happen to have a reserve of Jane Austen and William Shakespeare in my favorites box. This blend sounded interesting and I thought…

Vegan Falafel

I am always a fan of falafel. Anytime I see it, I’m going to order it. I saw these in Sprouts and figured “why not?”. While they weren’t horrible, they were dry. If you’re going to dip them in tzatziki or hummus, they might be better. But, they seemed rubbery and just feel like they…

Tri-color Quinoa, Great Value

I’ve made no secret of my love for Quinoa. I would have to say that the Tri-color is my favorite, since it has quite a few textures mixed together. It is about thirty cents cheaper than it’s counterparts, too! If you are worried about it taking too long to make, know that you can microwave…

How Do You Deal With All That? (IBS)

  This is a question I get a lot. When people hear about my diet restrictions or my flares, this is usually the response I get. More often than not, I shrug my shoulders and say “I just do. I don’t have a choice.” and that’s the end of it. There aren’t a lot of…

Crustless Pizza (Mushrooms, Onions and Green Peppers)

I miss pizza! We had such a great relationship and the memories can be haunting. Especially once I start to smell that crust crisping in an oven! The worst is when one of my roomates leaves their leftovers in the fridge. That smell commandeers the fridge and I just want to sneak a piece! I…

2012 Tasca D’Almerita Regaleali Rosso, Sicily

I’m not a big drinker. In all honesty, it had been two years since I drank anything before a glass of this wine. I wasn’t sure how I would feel, so I limited myself to one glass. I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t get too drunk, and I definitely wanted to be sure that…

The Flourless Fiasco

I post recipes on Facebook, all the time! It helps people see what I can and can’t eat; how they can eat the same, if they want to. I finally decided to make a flourless cake from one of the posts. It was daring. I decided to try to use Martha Stewart’s recipe, but wasn’t…

Cranberry Chia and Flaxseed Nut Clusters,Country House

I bought these nut clusters during my trip to 99 cent Ranch. I love the combination of almonds and cranberries. This was one of those times I was right and really enjoyed it! The cranberries went well with the nut cluster and nothing was overwhelming about either. It wasn’t too sweet and it had a…
