Curry Seafood Chowder

Curry Seafood Chowder - I Say Nomato Nightshade Free Food Blog
Made with nightshade-free curry, this Curry Seafood Chowder has a zippy twist!    They said on the news that stores across Nova Scotia have run out of snow-blowers already this year. We are, it seems, still a bit shocked from the snowy disaster that was last winter, the snow that never seemed to melt between… Read More

Risotto alla Milanese

Italians are some of the most patient people in the world when it comes to food. Parmesan aged for 20 years… wine aged for 50… every meal is an investment, a work of art. A meal worth waiting for. So when I say that this risotto takes at least half an hour of patience and… Read More

Italian Wedding Soup

Okay, I’m officially in denial. I admit it. Summer is here, and here I am, making soup. I could make some sort of excuse, like drinking hot liquids makes it seem not so hot outside… or that I had leftovers in the fridge that I needed to get rid of… And while both of those excuses… Read More

Sweet Potato Beef Stew

You know how sometimes you make something over and over and it’s delicious but just not… fantastic? There’s something missing, but you can’t quite put your finger on it?

Nightshade Free Miracle Chili

Nightshade. Free. Chili. And that’s it. We’re done. Pack it up, move it out, blog’s over. I’m just kidding, of course. But seriously, guys. There’s no way I’m ever going to top this. This chili is… I just don’t even know how this is possible. It tastes almost exactly like tomato chili. With every mouthful,… Read More

Cream of Mushroom Soup

It’s the end of January, and that means winter is setting in. It’s been cold here in Southern Louisiana. A torrential storm has blasted a path across the southern state, so rainy that even though it’s sunny now, I’m eyeing the swiftly moving bayou behind our house, planning exactly what I’ll grab if it creeps… Read More

Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine Alfredo is one of the most decadent dinners I can imagine. It’s my ‘treat myself at the restaurant’ dish, my ‘rainy day’ dish, my ‘guests are coming oh my goodness what am I going to make’ dish. There’s just something about the creaminess of the sauce and the noodles, and all that cheese that… Read More

Slow Cooker Chicken and Vegetable Soup

I love soup. Soup is like a hug for your whole body, and even though we’re in the sunny American south for now, it’s been pretty cold this November. Another thing I love? My crockpot. I say ‘my crockpot’, but I’m pretty sure this is crockpot #3 over the past few years, as we move… Read More
