Everything Sauce

This sauce is named appropriately….you can literally eat it on everything. We dip naked chicken strips in it, we top potatoes with it, you can use it for a tangy salad dressing. The possibilities are endless! Couldn’t be easier. Simply mix all three ingredients in a small bowl, and serve. Can also be refrigerated, covered,

Whipped Potatoes

When we started doing Whole30, I wanted something quick and easy, and could also be disguised as fancy with a steak. This fits the bill! Bring a large, and salted, stock pot of water to a boil over medium high heat. Add potatoes, bring back to a boil, and cook until tender. This usually takes about

Pam’s Macaroni Salad

Growing up, we had a garden full of tomatoes and cucumbers, so when we had macaroni salad, it contained….wait for it…tomatoes and cucumbers! That is why I use those veggies in my version. But when I met my husband, he was not a fan of heavy mayo based salads, so I had to devise a

Onion Strings

When I was in high school, I worked at Runza, which had the best onion rings. The breading was excellent and the crunch…I still dream about the crunch now that I am gluten free and cannot enjoy them anymore! When I crave onion rings and make them at home, they usually are a side dish
