Finally a bit o' posting

Life took a turn for the crazy. I got a new job at a Mental Health and Detox Hospital which is keeping me on my toes but going great. The Red Cross is kicking things into gear and needing more volunteers. AND I'm 98% set to move into a new apartment on this Friday. I'm excited but exhausted. Things will keep on moving. Just wanted to fill in some of the food I've been eating. Recently my cooking has seemed like nothing to write home about: fajitas, pancakes, stir-fry, and chicken lettuce wraps are just so delicious I can't stop.

Superbowl Fajitas-so pretty

Corvallis Fajitas-so delicious

Recipe?-yeah sure (store bought taco seasoning can have wheat and too many additives)
Peppers, I like one of each
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 pinch cayenne
Garlic seasoning or crushed cloves

Allergy Free Macaroni and Cheese! (Dairy-free, wheat-free, egg-free)

It was amazing, I made it once at the beach and shared it with friends and then again at home. Sooo delicious and should be one of my staples.

1/2 box quinoa pasta, cooked, drained and placed in baking dish
1/2 cup rice milk or other non-dairy milk
3/4 cup Daiya mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup Daiya cheddar cheese
2-4 Tbs nutritional yeast
salt and Pepper
3 zucchini
1 onion
2 garlic cloves, crushed

I first cooked the sausage and threw in the zucchini, onion, and garlic. Pour these over the pasta and cook the cheese sauce in same pan for sausage-delicious-ness. First add milk and yeast and slowly add cheese. It melts well and gets thick. Add more milk/cheese as needed. Pour over pasta and stir in. I baked it for 30 min to get it really good but if could be eaten more readily. Check out the awesome dish from the beach cabin. Highly recommend this recipe!


  1. I want the recipe for those lettuce wraps. :-)

  2. I found the recipe for the macaroni and cheese so reassuring! I have been tested for coeliac and was worried that I wouldn't be able to eat my usual things. However seeing this settles my worries because this would be a pleasure to eat!


  3. I'm so glad! Allergies were so daunting at first but, considering all the allergies I have I eat way MORE GOOD FOOD than the average person. :) Thanks for reading.
