Hello. Welcome to Recipe Idea Shop, where we give you recipes for comfort food with a healthy twist.
“It’s May. It’s May. The lusty month of May!” (From Camelot)
May brings flowers, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and the start of summer picnics. It’s also (my personal favorite) “Eat Dessert First Month.” So this month I will feature special desserts and picnic foods. And you will want to try my Guacamole recipe. I personally think it’s the best guac recipe.
On WHSV’s One on One program on May 21, watch me talk about French Potato Salad. It’s a flavorful, delightful potato salad that is perfect for picnics because it doesn’t require mayonnaise. You are gonna wanna make this salad.
Good food can more than nourish you, it can heal you. It helped me heal my gut. Read my story, How I Healed Myself with Food. I learned I had food sensitivities and what a
pain (literally) that is.
Lately, we seldom eat in restaurants because I have developed food sensitivities that make eating out difficult. Gluten seems to be the biggest culprit—although I’m not celiac—but I also have trouble with commercial milk products. I have to stick with A2 milk or I get severe joint pain, almost immediately. So…we are cooking more gluten-free and dairy-free recipes, and I am busy converting all my cookies and cakes to gluten-free. Baking gluten free is quite a challenge. Getting the texture right is hard, but when I get it right, I share the recipe and tips on how to do it.
