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
Organic Pulled Prok
Online, we’ve been able to connect with a lot of new people. One of them, @theunskilledcavewoman on Instagram, loves using her combo slow cooker. We posted about pear dish a while back, and she used that as an idea to create something totally rad in her pot. I had been thinking about a slow cooker for a while until that point, and that’s what pushed me over the edge. We ended up getting a combo slow cooker and pressure cooker. I’ve always wanted both, and Kid Two and I saw a really cool demo last year and knew we needed it. Fast forward, and we get one. The Papa immediately says, “We have to have pulled pork!” So that’s what I set about making. Pulled pork in the pressure cooker, then slow cooked with sauce. Although this is a labor intensive and time intensive project, according to everyone that ate it, you won’t regret it at all. If I could go back and do anything differently, I would have made more so there would be more leftovers. They ate most of it the night I made it. Not sure if I should be happy or sad about that.

Organic Creamy Chicken & Zoodles

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.

Organic Paleo Peaches Recipe
I really hope you bought those peaches I was telling you about. Do you remember the first photo on the Stuffed Peaches post? I had 4 giant organic peaches, but only used 2 for the recipe. With the extra 2, I put together these delicious peach toppings. The first is a Paleo version, and tomorrow I’ll be posting the Triple B Peaches.
The concept behind the dish was to make something that would be really yummy at breakfast time. However, turns out it’s great with ice cream too. I imagine this could be used on cupcakes, oatmeal, cream of wheat, and toast. And of course, eaten straight out of a bowl.

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.

Quick Recipe: Organic Cherry Blast
I wanted to make something quick and fun for the kids, and this was the result. Don’t blink, or you’ll miss it. This was a bit of a cherry milkshake, and Kid Three was in love with it, as he’s the biggest cherry fan in the house.

Rosemary Ginger Chicken Salad Recipe, A Three Course Meal
The great part about the main course for this three part meal is simply how fast it comes together. The flavors in this salad pair so well with the Hasselback Potato. Everyone really enjoyed this, and usually don’t like rosemary. If you’re preparing the full three courses, start with the Chocolate Ice Cream first while your oven preheats. Then, make the potatoes and get them in the oven. You’ll want to get this dish in the pan when there’s 10 – 15 minutes left on the potatoes.

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…
