Grilled Chicken Satay Kabobs (Low-FODMAP)

Grilled Chicken Satay Kabobs {Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I'm still here! It's been a while since my last blog post. I've been working on a big project and gotten behind in pretty much everything in my life right now, including this blog. I'm stressed and exhausted, but I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and I hope it will all be worth it. Right now I put all of my energy into working at my new engineering job in the mornings, then what energy I have left goes into my project in the afternoon and evening. I end up not having any energy left for anything, including my poor neglected blog. So I hope you are still with me, because I have a tasty recipe to share today!

Easy-On-The-Belly Barbacoa (Low-FODMAP)

Easy-On-The-Belly Barbacoa {Low-FODMAP}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I know some people will think this is sacrilege, but I've never eaten at Chipotle. I know, right? Well, if you have IBS, you will understand why I usually try to avoid Mexican food. Don't get me wrong, I happen to love Mexican food. But it does not love me. Onions, garlic, spicy peppers and chilies....they taste wonderful, but they also stick around to haunt me later.

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!
