No Oven? No Problem. No-Bake Cookies!

No-Bake Cookies {FODMAP-Friendly, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I was really sad to leave my double oven in St. Cloud. I had really gotten used to it, baking two different things at once. It was a shock to move into a new place with only (gasp!) a single oven. Well, I got used to that too. Until it died. So sad. I'm sure we could have fixed it, but we used it as an excuse to go out and buy a new one! Trust me, I do enough baking to justify it, especially since one of my jobs (writing this blog) depends on baking and cooking in the oven.

Just for Fun: Crock Pot Candy

Crock Pot Peanut Cluster Candy  /  Delicious as it Looks

Well, we are about half-way between Valentine's Day and Easter, so it seems like a good time to share a chocolate recipe. You don't mind, do you? Didn't think so. This candy is not necessarily low-FODMAP. Nor is it natural or good for you, but not everything can be.

Low-FODMAP Recipe Roundup: Friday Fish Fry

I thought I'd try a new type of post. One in which I feature some of my favorite low-FODMAP recipes in different categories. Also, one in which I don't have to feature a new recipe that I haven't had time to create because my life has been a disaster lately and I'm so stressed I don't know which end is up and I've forgotten how to breathe and my back is still killing me. Did I mention I'm stressed?

My mom recently had another health scare. Thankfully, she is doing much better now and it appears the doctors may have found out why she has stopped breathing twice now. So the past few weeks I have either been working or at the hospital. Everything else has had to be put on the back burner. Plus, my back is still out of whack. Although it's better, I'm still not able to function normally. Or exercise. Exercise is essential to my mental health, so not being able to work out has made everything worse. Time for another trip to the doctor.

Well, back to this post. I decided to round up some of my favorite fish and seafood recipes for those of you observing Lent. It's no secret that I love fish and seafood and don't need a special occasion to enjoy it. I hope you enjoy these recipes too!

Cookie Dough Overnight Oats {Vegan, Gluten-Free, Low-FODMAP}

Cookie Dough for Breakfast?

I have a new breakfast obsession. I saw this recipe on Pop Sugar and was immediately in love. In spite of my killer back pain, I immediately got up out of my comfy chair and went to the kitchen to make this recipe. I decided to actually try it with the Greek yogurt. I've been noticing that I tolerate protein much better when I pair it with carbs, and this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

Potato Dumplings for Soup (Matzah Balls/Kneidlach)

Potato Dumplings for Soup {Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I know it's been a while since my last post. Things have finally been settling down though, and I finally have some extra time. The holidays are over, we are all moved into our new house, settling into our new jobs and my mom is coming home next week. Did the last couple of months really happen? I'm so glad we made it through because we are in a really good place here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
