Product Review: Casa de Sante
I was recently given the opportunity to sample some seasoning mixes from Casa de Sante. It's so exciting right now with all of these new companies coming out with low-FODMAP food products. When I first started blogging about low-FODMAP recipes, there were no products on the market specifically designed to be low-FODMAP. Now I'm hearing about more and more products available and it's so promising!

I don't know about you, but there are just some days that I don't feel like cooking at all. Nor do I feel like going out or spending money on takeout. For those days, I rely on freezer meals. When my husband and I were first married, I actually didn't cook much. I worked full-time in engineering and when I wasn't doing that, I was recovering from surgeries. So we ate a lot of frozen chicken nuggets, pizza and prepared freezer meals like Chicken Voila! This was long before the low-FODMAP diet, so I had no idea that eating such foods was likely causing my IBS.

I know a while ago I promised some more vegetarian Low-FODMAP recipes, but life got in the way and it never got done. I've recently made some changes in my life and should hopefully have more time and energy to devote to my blog once again. So here is a vegetarian recipe that I created more than a year ago and I'm just now getting around to posting it.

Are any of you familiar with the term "Hygge"? I've been hearing a lot about it lately and I have to say that I love it. Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a Danish term roughly translating to the word "cozy" in English. It means snuggling up with a blanket and a pug on your lap with a good book and a hot cup of coffee while it's cold and snowing outside. I guess growing up and living the midwest - Iowa and Minnesota - made me appreciate how lucky I am to have a nice, warm home to live in when the weather is unbearable outside. I truly live for the simple things in life and appreciate how satisfying just sitting quietly and realizing how comforting your surroundings can be.

This time of year makes me yearn for creamy comfort foods, like soup, stew and pasta dishes. One of my favorite pasta dishes right now is Creamy Italian Turkey Penne. I'm excited to share the recipe with you, but first, I wanted to share my recipe for Italian sausage, which is the main ingredient. You can make this sausage with either ground pork, ground turkey or ground chicken. I tend to use ground turkey most frequently. It is lean and I like the flavor.
