Our Newest Gift

Almost exactly a year after a miscarriage, we welcomed our precious little girl into the world. She is every bit worth the wait and worth a more challenging pregnancy than I had with her brother. Here’s a review: I spent half the pregnancy with “morning sickness” – which plagued...

Crockpot Chicken and Rice

I’m not really big on rice, but I thought I would give chicken and rice another try. I combined a couple of different recipes I found through Pinterest, then added some flair of my own. It’s challenging to get my little man (or even my husband) to eat vegetables,...

Creamy Crockpot Chicken

What you will need: 2- 8 oz cream cheese 2 Good Seasons Italian dressing packets 1/4 cup white cooking wine (vinegar also works) 6-8 chicken breast.   Place chicken in a crock pot (still frozen) and pour the mix of the other ingredients over the chicken and cook on...

Chicken in Mushroom Sauce

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided (flavored olive oil can really kick this recipe up a notch. For this recipe, I used the chili oil – only problem: it was too spicy for the 3 year old and the preggo mommy) 1 small can sliced mushrooms...

Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

No doubt some are familiar with this Bisquick recipe, which uses eggs. My first attempt making this recipe with a substitution of sour cream was a little runny – not quite the right consistency, but still tasty (and D ate it!). So for my second attempt, I added a...

Honey Bun Cake

I adapted this recipe using cornstarch instead of eggs. Next time, I will probably use a little more liquid and maybe even a smaller pan for a thicker cake. Either way, it turned out great (as the ladies’ Bible class will also give witness). Cake 1 yellow cake mix...

Muffins

Most muffin mixes contain egg in the ingredients. Most pre-made muffins also contain egg, not to mention the “may contain trace amounts of peanut” warning. D wanted some muffins at Bible study so badly, that I decided I would have to make him some “safe” muffins. This recipe experiment...

Pork Chops with Ginger Snap Gravy

1 lb lean pork loin, trimmed 1 tbsp olive oil 1 1/4 cup water 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped (I use onion flakes, and only about 1/4 cup because we aren’t big onion people) 4 ginger snaps, crushed 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp beef bouillon granules 1/8...

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

(adapted from a Stove Top recipe). The Stove Top chicken flavored stuffing is egg-free, making it an ideal substitution – at least until I brave making my own egg-free cornbread and making a variation of my grandmother’s dressing (which will be nowhere near as good without the eggs…). 1 1/2...

Skillet Lasagna

Another adaptation of a Weight Watchers recipe. The original recipe calls for egg noodles. Obviously, I had to find something else since Dietrich is allergic to eggs. 16 oz. of low-fat turkey sausage 1 1/2 cups low fat cottage cheese 8 oz. spiral noodles 8 tsp. Parmesan Cheese 2...
