Marvelous Roasted Chicken

Lemon & Thyme Roasted Chicken {Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I'm far from being a professional chef, but I'm a decent cook. And I'm a darned good baker. I think any decent cook should have a simple, but satisfying roast chicken recipe in their repertoire. It doesn't have to be their own recipe. For years I used Ina Garten's recipe. Well, I've been working on my own recipe for the past couple of months now and I think I finally have it down. A roast chicken that I can call my own and use again and again.

They are very popular because of the "guilt-free" and "no sugar" aspect. has a recipe as well (pictured below): Flourless, No Added Sugar Oatmeal-Banana-Raisin Cookies.

The weather is cooling, the humidity is down, fall is arriving. As the temperature decreases, my desire to bake increases. I had a craving for oatmeal raisin cookies the other day. It just seemed like the perfect thing to bake for this time of year. Hearty and warm with cinnamon, oatmeal raisin cookies are so homey. It's not quite time for pumpkin yet (although the coffee places think otherwise), so oatmeal raisin cookies it is.

Belly Update: Brown Rice is Back!

Brown & White Rice Flour Blend {Gluten-Free, Gum-Free}  /  Delicious as it LooksOver the past year I have resigned to the fact that there are just some foods I cannot eat. Surprisingly, they aren't even all that high in FODMAPs. I have found that by not eating these foods, I am able to eat foods that I thought I originally had issues with.
