Nightshade Free Ramen

This homemade Nightshade Free Ramen is exploding with flavour!
Here in rural Nova Scotia, it's pretty much a miracle if there's a restaurant around that's not a) Mom & Pop Fish and Chips, b) Pizza, c) Pub Style (as long as you serve fish and chips...) or d) ... I'm having a hard time thinking of a d option. But lo and behold, there… Read More

I Wish it Were Spring Rolls

I Wish it Were Spring Rolls - I Say Nomato Nightshade Free Food Blog
Actually, do you know what? No, no I don’t. Wish it were spring, that is. It was -10 degrees outside this morning (14°F), and as I was scraping the ice off the car all I could think about was how gorgeous it was. Last night’s inches of snow were light and fluffy, and everything was… Read More

There are more goats on the island than people. So. Many. Goats. Groceries came in once a week by boat, usually on Wednesday, sometimes Thursday… Read More

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Guys... I have fall on the brain. First of all, I would like to state for the record that I liked fall before it was cool. Before pumpkin spice lattes (which are... not my fav), tall boots (which you will pry from my cold, dead hands), and plaid (which I adore). This is what you… Read More

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

So it seems I've settled into a winter food/crockpot rut over the last few weeks. I feel like I'm hibernating like an alligator (apparently they are sleeping now - I did not realize that alligators hibernate). And do you know what? I'm 100% okay with both the sleeping alligators and my delicious delicious crockpot streak. This week's… 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
