Join The Lil Chef and Myself on our "Food Adventures"! There will be recreations of "Old Classics", exploration of new Allergy Free products (as they come out), the making of my many food cravings, and testing of recipes. We are ALWAYS trying to raise awareness of food allergies & intolerances one post at a time. This page Gluten Free, Wheat Free, mostly Allergy Free, hopefully, one day Yeast Free, NO red meat, Dairy, and Lactose Free.
I think I might've gone just a little not so healthy crazy lately so I haven't had my usual cravings (which is a good thing) or have really wanted to eat for that matter. I definitely have not wanted "breakfast food". I glanced at The January Menu (I had to make it cute for MY Birthday!) and there it was... a great idea! Chicken Caesar Salad for breakfast!
Chicken Tenderloins from Aldi, who knew >>>>>>>>>had gluten free croutons?! Ok I din't! So awesome. Oh yea I found them in Walmart, Italian salad mix, Pecorino, & Walden Farms Caesar Dressing from Giant Eagle.
I was a little disappointed :-( I had to Dr. up the Caesar dressing. I was hoping I could find one that I wouldn't have to jazz up myself. Again, my fault, I jumped the gun I was suppose to make my own dressing and I saw this in the store and had to get it. There will be homemade caesar dressing recipes coming soon. I'm going to have to try all of them to see which I like the most.
Overall, this was very good!
This may not look like much but this was EVERYTHING!!!!! I super super love iced coffee, frappuccinos, coffee ice cream & shakes except I cant have those things from outside places anymore. I posted my diy at home frappuccino recipe and result the other day, which is/was really good but!... you mix it with ice cream and it's heaven! The Lil Chef said it tastes like Wendy's. Yay Mom!
Finally Dinner. We had tuna patties, I needed something easy to make and we love them. Most of the time :/ The Lil Chef complained there were too onions this time around.
You see I used my pan method for the brown rice again. :-)
I always saute my veggies. I actually parboiled the cauliflower first then sauteed it, of course in the same pan. No need to create more dishes.
Tuna Patties are incredibly easy! I used 3 cans of tuna in water (GF) from Aldi, Seasoned the fish, Diced the onion added that, sprinkled a little GF flour and added one egg to bind it.
Form the mixture into patties, give them a slight flour coating and "fry". These patties take very little olive oil to cook. All you need is a coating of olive oil on the bottom of the pan, if you need more then add it but add as you go, never start with too much.
MMMMMM, so good!
Everything all together! Tuna Patties, Sauteed Cauliflower, Brown Rice and Chobani 0% greek yogurt to top it off! Of course it tastes better than this picture looks.

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
