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.

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
Delicious Organic Rice Cookup
This came about for a few reasons, mainly, I didn’t feel like cooking meat, and, I had a variety of various fresh ingredients available. Another big reason is that I like to push myself to omit things like tomato, onion, garlic, and parsley when I can, so people with less common allergies can enjoy a good recipe too. Kid Three is a serious meat eater. He really cracks me up sometimes. However, I think it’s important for people to enjoy eating all sorts of meals, and really focus on flavor, texture, and the joy of the company they’re with. This dish would be great also made with organic quinoa if you’re a fan, or don’t have any rice handy.

Recipe: Gluten Free, Beef Free, Corn Free, Corn Dogs!!!
Do you hear that friends???!!! It is truly the sound of success!!!! You see, back in the day, before we knew about the wheat allergy, the kids would often eat corn dogs. There’s a gluten free one made by Applegate, but, it’s beef based. So, our allergy kid hasn’t had corn dogs in may years. So, on day, I was online and saw a Tasty Video, and that’s when it hit me. I could make him a corn dog. It was like the clouds above had opened and angels were singing. I kid you not, there was so much singing and dancing and giddy all around joy in the kitchen when we made these. In addition to this post, we’re working on a video for the Youtube Channel 🙂

Organic Spinach, Chicken, & Mushroom
We made a very special dish for someone recently, and The Papa says it turned out well. I will say, I don’t think this one is very kid friendly. It’s definitely for the grownup, or kids and teens with adult tastes. Additionally, I feel that this is a great springboard for making something awesome. Have some extra Thanksgiving stuffing? You could totally add that in for something extra tasty. Apples would also add a lovely touch.

Dessert Date Pasta (Sauce) Recipe
If you were to ask Kid Two, he’d tell you that I saved the best for last. He couldn’t stop raving over how good this sauce was. It was rich, deep, and tasted like dessert. However, he did tell me later that it’s like pasta or cream sauce, you can’t eat too much of it. Yet, it was soooo good, he still wanted more. Makes me giggle to myself thinking about it.

Easy Peasy Lemonade Popsicles
I know they say the fall season has started, but I needed to sneak in one more thought of summer time. If you were on the internet during the summer, you would have been inundated with beautiful editorial-style photos of popsicles. All sorts of them!! My favorites were ones that were clear with fruit chunks on the inside. Turns out, coconut water. The Papa’s allergic, so nope. I thought about using water, but thought, who does that?! I mean, that’s a bit out there, even for us. Plus, it may melt faster than I would like. I seriously lost a little sleep over this one. I had to find a way to show the internet that you can have pretty, coconut free, Ikea made, popsicles. LEMONADE!!! I was resting one day when the thought hit me like a ton of bricks. I was so happy.

Organic Stuffed Peaches
RUN TO THE STORE!!! It’s just about the end of the peach season. Please, I beg of you, if you’re not allergic to peaches (like me), buy some. No. Buy lots. Prep them, bake them, freeze them, make sorbet, just stuff yourself silly with peaches. Can you tell I miss eating peaches? You know the ones… they’re ripe, soooo soft, but cold and juicy… I may go cry a little bit. While I do that, you read this recipe 🙂 One of us should enjoy the peaches, right? Funny thing about that, the kid who hates oatmeal the most ate one and a half of these stuffed peaches, oatmeal and all, hehe.

Patty Melts Recipe
I loved patty melts as a child, and as I recreated these for the kids (beef and wheat free of course), I actually missed them. There’s not much that I miss, and most times I don’t realize that I miss something, but these, I tried to eat about 10 of them in my head. In my head, I feasted. Then I nibbled on some corn free peas…

Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Waffles Recipe
Sometimes, I really feel like the kids are messing with me. I’ll make something, and it will be my first attempt, and they rave over it. I really think they’re joking. This was one of those times. Other times, I think have it SO right in my head. I have my long and drawn out foodie title, and nope. No one likes it. You know the saying, it’s falling on deaf ears? I feel like some of my greatest creations have fallen on deaf taste buds. They can’t hear the nuances of delicious that’s been crafted with love. I digress. Back to the tasty waffles. Here’s the recipe. I’m certain you (and your kids) will enjoy.

Maple Balsamic Fig Chicken & Zoodles
It’s been such a roller coaster ride connecting with so many people online. It’s strange at times because we’ve been on this journey for so long, and turns out, my distaste for the internet shot me in the foot. Funny, coming from a we designer and IT person. Needless to say, I’ve tried to make a personal connection with each new person because honestly, all we want to do is help others go through this. There’s simply no reason to suffer etc. if someone else can lend a helping hand. The cool thing is that it’s giving me unique opportunities to create new things that I may have never even considered because, well, children. Those of you with kids know what’s up. Balsamic for children? I say yes! Well, now that I have a great reason to 🙂
Today’s creation came about after a conversation on Instagram with @eatingwellwithrochelle. She reviews products, and sometimes recipes. So, I wanted to create something, and she likes savory. It got me to thinking about all the fancy food I wish I could eat, and like Manna from Heaven, the idea fell out of the sky. So here it is. Hope someone out there can really enjoy this for me. The Papa says it’s nice, in a foodie sort of way.
