One of my big challenges this past year was figuring out how to make a bean-free low FODMAP chili. I’ve been making chili for years, but almost always with beans. And never without onions and garlic….
Low FODMAP Diet
The Best Low-FODMAP Diet Cookbooks and Gluten-free Cookbooks
Updated 5/7/2020 with new cookbooks.
When we started on the low-FODMAP diet, it felt a little overwhelming. There were so many things on our “do not eat” list, and pretty much all of them seemed to make their way into most of the packaged food in our cupboards. Not to mention the garlic and onions that were in just about every condiment or sauce in our refrigerator door. Clearly, I needed some really solid low-FODMAP diet cookbooks to add to my bookshelves.
Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies
Too often, the only gluten-free chocolate chip cookies I come across are of the crunchy variety. And although there’s nothing wrong with that, I’m a fan of a softer cookie. One that’s more chewy than crispy when you take that first bite.

I’d gotten in the habit of grabbing a hard-boiled egg and a babybel cheese and tossing it into my lunch bag for a simple breakfast I could eat at my desk at work. I know, it’s terrible to sit at your desk and eat. But when you are not a morning person, just getting out the door on time to catch the bus is hard enough. And I need to be awake before I can even think about eating anything.
So the egg-and-a-cheese breakfast made sense….
Chili Lime Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
My boyfriend has a serious sweet tooth. As in an eats-dessert-every-night sweet tooth.
He’s the lucky recipient of the bulk of my baking projects, and that’s just fine by him.
