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 can't quite remember what I had for breakfast but this was Lunch! MMMM... Homemade Popcorn
Roasted Chicken Thighs
Dinner: Roasted Chicken, Broccoli, & Brown Rice = AWESOME!
FEB 3rd... Breakfast
Decided to switch it up a little, Baked chicken wings (because we liked the baked chicken thighs so much the previous night)
& Fried chicken wings!
I surprise myself sometimes with how good certain foods taste. The fried chicken this time was mind blowing! I feel sad for the baked chicken, it couldn't compete.
Lunch! Tuna fish: tuna, salad dressing, sweet relish, a ton of horseradish, yellow mustard, spicy brown mustard, celery...
I love the Glutino Gluten Free crackers with tuna fish.
The tuna fish deserved an encore for lunch the next day!
Dinner (ignore the puppies and kittens on the paper under the plate lol)
Ok, so we liked the fried chicken so much the other night I made fried chicken tenders! Amazing, simply amazing!
The Lil Chef and I ran into some financial issues this month and visited our local food pantry. Boy did we get lucky with these western style ribs! I seasoned them but they should have marinated overnight but I didn't have that type of time.
After: we went to the library, came back and Ta-Da!...
Ribs and fries! I am going to post the french fry recipe shortly. These are the homemade crispy seasoned fries that I posted a few days ago.
We ate pretty good for having to make due with what we had. This was the first time in a long time that we weren't able to go grocery shopping when we needed to but life happens and it's good to be reminded sometimes that you shouldn't take anything for granted!

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…
