Homemade Sushi Adventure
At no point will you ever hear me claim to be a sushi chef. I know my limits, hence, the really cool sushi maker that we have. It claims to roll out perfect sushi every time, except we usually over fill it. In addition to over-filling the maker, I use Costco bought guacamole, and call it avocado sushi. Sometimes, easy is simply better 🙂
Kid Two simply loves and adores all things sushi, except for the spicy sauce. We both cringe at the price though. When he was younger, I bought the cool sushi maker on Amazon, along with Sushi For Dummies the cookbook. We still haven’t read the book, and often forget to use the sushi maker. However, it’s making a comeback. I want to share with you our weekend of sushi making.

Fall Feature – Creamy Pumpkin Spaghetti Squash
It’s another Monday in October, which means we’re bringing you another recipe collaboration with @dana_aversa (Happy Herbivore) on Instagram. Each week, we will both bring you a spectacular way to approach the same dish. This week, it’s pasta!!
I’ve always been fascinated with spaghetti squash. It’s so cool to shred it and see “pasta” strands form. I once had it in a soup I purchased from Mission Heirloom, and I knew I had to try it out. There’s a safe farm that I can buy produce from on Good Eggs, and sure enough, they had just what we needed.

For Paleo, GAPs, and AIP: Omit the guar gum in the sauce. It is a thickener. You could use a little coconut, almond, tigernut, or cassava flour to thicken if you’d like. However, it’s not a requirement for a tasty dish. Read More
Kiwi Lime Paleo Dessert
I saw a really cool idea on the internet, and decided to give it a go. I purchased a container of organic kiwi at Costco with this dessert in mind. I really love Costco… affordable organics… Back to the dessert. What I read online was more of a tart, with a semi-traditional crust. I opted to use a method that I’ve been going with for about a year now. It’s similar to the Paleo Dessert Cups that we sell at our bakery (freeandfriendlyfoods.com), except in bar form. The kids really enjoyed it, and my only regret was that I didn’t set it in the freezer. I think if I had, there would have been less discoloration around the kiwi fruit.

Organic Chicken & Sweet Potato Soup
Kid Three wasn’t feeling well, so I decided to change course make the kids soup. They said it turned out really well, so it’s a good thing I wrote everything down. As I was getting ready to prepare the soup, I had the thought to add some unconventional soup ingredients. I spun it to the kids as “it was extra healthy and healing” and I think that made them like it even more.

Dessert Date Pasta (Sauce)
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 so good, he still wanted more. Makes me giggle to myself thinking about it.

Chocolate Coconut Sorbet-Style Ice Cream, A Three Course Meal
What’s a three course meal without dessert? When I knew what allergens I needed to avoid, I dug deep to come up with this. @chronically_kota misses chocolate ice cream, and hopefully this will hit the spot. Here’s what we found to be interesting. We’re calling it more of a sorbet because I used coconut milk that was more like a coconut water. It’s the Pacific Organic brand, but it was very watery, unlike the kind you buy the can, which has the fat layer on top. To achieve a more creamy, ice cream like texture, opt for the kind in a can if you have one that’s safe for you. That extra fat is what will make the greatest difference in the final texture.

Rosemary Ginger Chicken Salad, A Three Course Meal
The great part about the main course for this three part meal is simply how fast it comes together. I also feel that this pairs quite 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.

Hasselback Potatoes, A Three Course Meal
For those of you that come to visit often, you know how much of a foodie I am, or at least, want to be. Do you ever notice in life that people with a disability of any sort usually go on to conquer something that challenges that disability? Like one-armed tennis players… That sort of thing. Seems like it’s only natural that a person with severe food allergies with come up with all of this stuff. Anywho. The potatoes. Have you seen them online? They’re GOR-GEEEE-ous! I’ve been wanting to do this, and the right need came up.
As our social media presence grows, I’m meeting all sorts of people with all sorts of allergies. @chronically_kota and I were chatting about her needs, and the sorts of things she missed, so I created a very special 3 course meal. I really hope that this not only makes her day, but yours too.
Before we move on however, I have a confession to make. There aren’t many pictures. We tried to make this one of our first video posts… the video… may it rest in peace. And, you’ll love this. I plated the most perfect of the four, and accidentally let the kids eat it before I took a picture. It had fanned out just right… it’s OK to cry for me.
