Cooking as Therapy

I always tell people cooking is my creative outlet outside work – which is true – but it’s more than that too. I spend a lot of my day wondering what other people are thinking about me, what they’re thinking about each other, trying to get everyone to get along…

Medications for IBS symptoms – what’s worked for me

I’ve been meaning to write this post forever, because I sort of feel like I’m lying to y’all otherwise. Being all “yeah the low FODMAP diet cured me!” when that’s only part of it. While I wish I didn’t have to take any medications for my IBS symptoms…

Curry Sauce with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Continuing our unofficial sauce series, today we’ve got a super easy curry dipping sauce inspired by one of my favorite bars in Austin. Yellow Jacket Social Club is your typical Austin bar – 90% outdoor space, 10% indoor space. The drinks are good and cheap, but the hidden gem there is the food…

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets! We’re going back here people. I almost titled this post “Cornbread Crusted Chicken” or something equally as pretentious, and while the alliteration is nice, I can’t lie to you people. These are chicken nuggets and I made them because I wanted chicken nuggets…

Quick pumpkin soup “recipe”

Is it soup season where you are? Here in Austin, it’s hit 90 degrees every day for the past week. Which apparently makes some people mad, but I’m loving it. Because it’s cooling off in the mornings and evenings, which is when you want to eat soup anyway…

Turns out setting really annoying reminders does the trick…

Tips for Traveling on the Low FODMAP Diet

Summer — and therefore travel season — are in full swing! We just got back from a vacation to King’s Canyon, Sequoia, and Yosemite National Parks, and traffic has been unusually wonderful this week because everyone is gone on vacations. I absolutely love traveling and seeing new places, but it can be stressful. Especially on the low FODMAP diet…

Tips for Eating Out on the Low FODMAP Diet

Hello and happy (almost) summer! I’ve been drafting a “tips for traveling” post in my head for quite awhile now, but when I sat down to actually write it, I quickly realized that I needed to write a “tips for eating out” post first. So…

Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake

Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake

Is it strawberry season where you are??! Growing up the midwest, my memories of strawberry season are that it was a very short amount of time — like a week — in the end of May or beginning of June. We always made it a point to go strawberry picking, but we never knew when Strawberry Week was going to be, so it was kind of a game…
