Gluten-free Baked Chicken Strips with Honey Mustard Sauce (Paleo & SCD)

If there’s one thing that frustrates me the most, it’s having to make 2 different meals at dinner time. I try to feed my son what we are having for dinner that night, but sometimes the flavors are too mature for his pallet, so I like to keep some more kid friendly options in the … Continue reading

Thai Style Coconut Curry

I love to go out to Thai food but it gets so pricy and my favorite restaurant won’t deliver outside a 5 mile radius (we’re about 6.5..they won’t do it). My first venture into the land of Thai was my Thai Coconut Soup (Tom Kha Gai), a relatively easy soup that warms the soul and … Continue reading
