Meat Lover’s Brussels & Rice Recipe
Today I want to share with you something that the kids absolutely loved: Meat Lover’s Brussels & Rice. It was a quick lunch that I put together, but they went back for thirds. My favorite thing about this recipe: it incorporates Brussels Sprouts. I was surprised when they were much younger how much they liked meals that included sprouts, and have continued to add them when I can.
As some of you may know, we are a homeschooling family, so on rice days I’ll often start the rice cooker with veggies on top in the steaming insert before running an errand or taking the kids somewhere. When we get back, half of the meal is ready to go. This meal is no different.

Hilary’s Breakfast Cookup
Can I just start by saying how much I LOVE Hilary’s Eat Well? If you have food allergies, are vegan, corn free, top 8 free, diabetic, or low-histamine, this is a company you need to know all about. They have a wide range of products (and the ranch dressing is bomb dot com) for people to choose from. During the Food Allergy Awareness Expedition, we had the pleasure of visiting the Hilary’s factory and they gifted us so many products, including the Millet Medleys, which was new at the time.

Allergy Friendly Purple Sweet Potato Mash
So mister Low/No Sugar had braces put on his teeth. With that in mind, I had to create all sorts of soft foods which were safe for him. In addition to his special “jello” and soup, he was also showered with sweet potatoes galore. There was also pudding and ice cream. And of course, his most favorite person in the world. Krysten (KrystensKitchen.com) brought him some very special Mickey Mouse gummies that she made. Read More

Allergy Free Comforting Chicken & Rice
This dish came together as one of those, “use what’s in the fridge” types of meals. I only used a small amount of asparagus since around here, it’s considered a bad word. I’m working on that by the way, lol. Here’s the best part though: after I had everything ready, I asked everyone to sample, and they were just so pleased. The Papa said that it’s not a dish that knocks you off your feet with flavor, but at the same time, it’s just so comforting to eat. In fact, he told me several times that evening that “Dinner was just so comforting. We should have that again soon.” Coming from him, and knowing that asparagus was involved, it was quite the compliment. So, from our kitchen to yours, here’s a comforting dish for the family to enjoy.
