The recipe that I’m sharing today is easy to make, and something that our youngest child was in love with. Keep in mind, she doesn’t like fish. What makes me even happier is its allergy friendly status. This one is safe for SO many people.

Allergy Friendly, Paleo, Maple Garlic Ahi
I’ve found myself over-experimenting with maple as of late. However, it’s been a real win-win-win for everyone. The kids are happy, readers get new recipes, and I get to use maple. It’s one of my favorite sweeteners for a very good reason: it’s one I can tolerate without getting sick, and I’ve seemed to find a brand I can use, sort of. Too much sugar of any kind is never good for me. Maple is also vegan and diabetic friendly, so there’s even more wins. OK, back to the ahi.
Costco sells wild ahi fresh where we live, however, it is a little pricey. We pay on average $25 for the ahi, and it will make one dinner. Now, divided over several people, it’s not so bad, but by comparison, canned tuna is less expensive. Needless to say, it’s something that I make the kids every couple of months. At Costco, I usually purchase two packs of ahi, make one fresh, and pre-slice the second and freeze it.
I’ve been making ahi for the kids for years, and I knew it was time to do something different, and this was a MEGA Hit! Kid Four isn’t a huge fish fan, and usually only eats a couple of pieces. The others sacrifice themselves and offer to eat the extras for me. I know, how brave, noble, and thoughtful of them, hehe. However, this version, Kid Four was more than happy to eat several pieces, and even asked for seconds.
Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Refined/Cane Sugar Free, Paleo, GAPs, Diabetic Friendly, Low Histamine, Corn Free Compatible, SCD Compatible, AIP Compatible
For Corn Free & Low Histamine: Source safe ingredients, and use a homemade seasoning blend. Look up the brands that we’ve used so you can replicate a homemade safe version for yourself. For example, the AP Season has tomato in it.
For SCD: Use a safe sweetener, as maple is not allowed on SCD, and use a homemade season blend.
For AIP: Omit Braggs, as some items in the blend are non-AIP. Instead, make your own multi use blend and use that. Read More
Lemon Garlic Shrimp
You know Kid Two loves shrimp right? I think I’ve said this before. Well, it was time to cook up some more, but with a new twist this time. This is a new take on our usual shrimp, but a Paleo version, and perhaps a little foodie? Either way, the kids enjoyed it, and hopefully you will too.
If you’re new to cooking with shrimp, I want to share this good news with you: it’s easy to work with. Be sure to purchase shrimp that’s prepared (peeled and deveined) to make your experience easier.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, Pescatarian, AIP Compatible, SCD Compatible, Nightshade Free Compatible
For AIP & Nightshade Free: Use a different/homemade spice blend, as Bragg contains peppers and tomato.
For SCD: Use a homemade season blend, as store-bought blends are not allowed. Read More
Tomatoes & White Fish Recipe
For those of you that have been on this journey with me for quite some time now, you know how MUCH I want to go to a restaurant that costs about $400 a person, and leaves you feeling hungry when you leave. hehe. No really… I do. This meal was an attempt to create that environment here in our home, even though I’m allergic to it, and could only pretend to eat it. My first thought was blistered tomatoes. Look it up, it’s really a thing. Then I thought, no, the kids won’t go for that, so went in a slightly different direction. In the end, I made the right choice because the kids enjoyed the meal, even though it was something totally new and different. From my heart to your tummy, I truly hope you enjoy this one. Well, not that I don’t want you to enjoy the others, just make sure you serve yourself a $400 portion 🙂
Speaking of portion size, that has become a bit of a joke in our kitchen. The kids will sample dinner and tell me if they would like a $10 portion (a lot of food) or a $400 portion (just a little). Cracks me up.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, SCD Read More
Honey Soy Baked Ahi Recipe
The kids have decided this is one of their new favorite dinners. Feels like they’ve been saying that a lot lately. Anywho, here’s what I LOVE about this one: It’s SOOOOOO easy, and comes together really fast. If you’re a Costco-aholic like I am, you could purchase several packs of ahi in advance, cut them all at the same time, and freeze them. Then the dish is even easier to prepare when you need a quick meal to make for everyone. In fact, please excuse me while I add more ahi to the shopping list.
This recipe pairs well with most veggies, and this time we served it alongside broccoli. We also shared this dinner with Grandma, and she loved it too. Sometimes there’s a misconception that those without allergies won’t enjoy food that’s gluten free, or refined sugar free, or [insert free here]. Truth is, when you use the right techniques and flavor profiles, people will quickly forget what the meal is free from, and love what you share with them. OK, well maybe the exception to this is nasty hard GF bread. Some of you know exactly what I’m talking about… 🙂
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo Compatible, GAPs Compatible, AIP Compatible, SCD Compatible, Corn Free Compatible
For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients. Products such as Coconut Aminos may need to be used in place of soy sauce.
For Paleo, GAPs, AIP, and SCD: Use a safe soy sauce, such as this GAPs Legal soy-free sauce. Also check Wild Mountain Paleo for current options too. Read More
Salmon Stuffed Ronde de Nice Recipe
Last week was Stuffed Vegetable Week here on the blog, and I didn’t have enough time to share this gem with you, so here it is. This was deemed to be juicy and delicious by The Papa, the kids, and one of their cousins who was over for a visit.
A note about the honey. You see, I was measuring it out when the whole lid popped off and honey went everywhere. If I had to guess, it was 2 TBSP. I was planning to use 1.5, but there could be as much as 3 TBSP, so please use your best judgement on this one. SO sorry. And we didn’t even get a funny picture of it happening.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Legume Free, Nightshade Free, Low Histamine, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, AIP, SCD, Sesame Free Compatible
For Sesame Free & AIP: Omit the sesame garnish.
*Corn Free: Source safe ingredients.
*Low Histamine: Be sure to have fresh fish. Read More
Seafood Stir Fry
I think this is the last of my Foodie Dream Posts for a while. Did you know I’ve always wanted to go to a place like French Laundry or Chez Panisse (started by Alice Waters)? Welp, I do, annnnd I can’t. So to make up for it, I like to dream up long fancy titles of meals. Officially, this one is described as (make sure you read it in your best voice): A seafood medley composed of a delightful blend of sea scallops, shrimp and calamari. To dazzle your taste buds we also added seasonal ramps, and for crunch, organic snap peas.
Or for short, you can call it Seafood Stir Fry.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Nightshade Free, Low Histamine, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo Compatible, GAPs Compatible, AIP Compatible, SCD Compatible, Nightshade Free Compatible
For Paleo: Serve over cauliflower rice.
For AIP: Omit smoked paprika, serve over cauliflower rice.
For SCD: Omit Bragg seasoning and replace with a homemade seafood season. Serve over cauliflower rice.
For Nightshade Free: Omit smoked paprika. Replace the Bragg season blend with something safe/homemade.
Mushroom & Lobster Pasta Recipe
This is another foodie dream of mine. Thanks for allowing me to dream 🙂 I don’t really have much of an intro today. If you could see the smile on my face, you’d see why. I’m just so happy I was able to make this, and make others happy, and still have no idea what it actually tastes like.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo Compatible, GAPs Compatible, SCD Compatible, AIP Compatible, Vegan Compatible

For AIP: Use a safe fat/oil of choice instead of dairy free butter, and omit Paprika.
For Vegan: Use a meatless fish product of choice, or omit the lobster all together. Read More
Ramps & Crab Dish Recipe
Remember when I fell in love with ramps? Well this is one of the few things I jazzed up using those wonderful little bulbs. I’m totally looking forward to the next season. Idea: ramp and leek onion soup. Oh and something with butternut squash. Yes, this is exactly how things come to me. Thank you for being part of the process 🙂
Back to the dish at hand. Being the foodie that I am, the idea of crab just makes me smile. It’s just so fancy 🙂 I think I make the kids something with crab twice a year and Kid Two looks forward to it. The ramps that we have access to via Good Eggs are wild foraged, and they smell AMAZING. While it’s similar to onion, it’s better. It has so many notes and honestly, I could just sit and smell it for hours at a time.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, SCD, AIP Compatible
For Strict/entry AIP: Omit green beans and replace with vegetable of choice Read More
Festive Tuna Salad Recipe
Did I tell you we sent Kid Two to summer camp? Well, we did, and it worked out so well. He had a blast, met new people, and even met someone who likes to do card tricks like him. He was thrilled. What has that got to do with Festive Tuna Salad? Well, it’s one of the meals I sent with him, and he really enjoyed it.
For quite some time now, I’ve been using Organicville ranch dressing and coleslaw dressings together to make the idea of mayo in his tuna salads, and he’s been OK with that. I was aware of some vegan options, but they were all soy based, and you know how I feel about American soy. So I’m walking through the store a couple of weeks ago (read: perusing Good Eggs from the comfort of home), after my aquafaba discovery, and THIS AMAZING EGG FREE VEGAN MAYO product catches my eye. It says it’s made with aquafaba on the front. I read the label, and no soy! And Kid Two can have it!!! So of course I had to buy some. The Papa was the first to sample the creation, and he said it tasted like the real deal, so much that he couldn’t really tell the difference. Kid Two. OH the joy and that child’s face! Once again, regretting not taking a picture in that moment.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free*, Sesame Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo Compatible, GAPs Compatible, Vegan Compatible

*Cane Sugar Free Note: The Mayo contains a small amount of cane sugar. You will need to use an alternative mayo.
