Life Update & A New Salmon Recipe

Creamy Dijon & Dill Baked Salmon {Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I've had a really tough time this past month. My mom is sick in the hospital. I've talked on my blog before about my family's health issues (here). My mom is a paraplegic. Last month, one thing led to another and she ended up in the hospital unable to breathe. She ended up with a tracheotomy and is now undergoing rehabilitation to help her breathe on her own again. It was quite serious and probably the most difficult thing my family has been through yet. However, the crisis seems to be over for now and the doctors are very positive that she will make a full recovery.

Despite all that has been going on, food has never been very far from my mind. I seem to find inspiration in the toughest of times. I guess it's how I keep on going. While staying at my parents' house, I was rifling through my mom's pile of magazines and reading material, looking for something to read and occupy my troubled mind. I found a little recipe booklet put together by their insurance company. Inside, I came across this salmon recipe and immediately saw the potential for adapting it to be low-FODMAP and in my case, egg-free (and dairy-free) as well. It turned out delicious and I think I may have a new favorite salmon recipe. My favorite part - it's so easy! See my version of the recipe below.
