My mom is worried that she is allergic to chocolate. I know, I had the same reaction as you: "Nooooooo!" She has been breaking out in hives for months now and is having allergy testing done soon. In the meantime, she suspects chocolate is the culprit and has been avoiding it. Normally when we get together with my parents, I make my delicious brownies. I decided to put together a blondie recipe, something we can all enjoy.

Low-FODMAP Tomato Margherita Pasta

Some days (maybe most days?) I feel like my body is falling apart. I woke up with a wry neck on Saturday morning. Not exactly how I wanted to start my weekend off. I have a tendency to get a stiff neck, I think it's because I carry so much tension in my neck and shoulders. I've recently started doing yoga, so I'm hoping that will help prevent these type of "stress injuries."

Low-FODMAP Cheddar Broccoli Millet

Low-FODMAP & Gluten-Free Cheddar Broccoli Millet  /  Delicious as it Looks

I recently heard that September is National Whole Grains month, so I thought I would celebrate by sharing this delicious recipe using a delightful whole grain: millet. I love, love, love carbs and I'm keen on spending a whole month celebrating them, how about you? Millet is an ancient grain and often found in bird seed mixes! What's good for the birds is good for us I guess. It has a mildly sweet and nutty flavor and is a good source of carbohydrates, fiber and protein. Plus, it's low in FODMAPs!

Low-FODMAP Bakery-Style Blueberry Muffins

I have to admit that I've been working on this recipe for the past two years! It's not that it's been difficult to develop, it's just that I get so easily distracted. I have a hard time focusing on just one recipe. I made my initial version of these two years ago, then never followed up with it. I recently decided to revive the recipe when I had a bunch of blueberries to use before they went bad. This time I was determined to get it finalized and posted.

Grilled Cuban Spiced Pork Chops

Low-FODMAP Grilled Cuban Spiced Pork Chops  /  Delicious as it Looks

I know it's back-to-school time already, but it's still perfect weather for grilling. Speaking of weather, I hope you had some clear skies for viewing the solar eclipse last week! It was cloudy here in Iowa, but luckily I was able to join my aunt and uncle in a drive down to Missouri to be in the path of totality. They drove all the way down from Minnesota where they spend their summers to witness the event.
