Instant Pot Eggroll in a Bowl

We adapted this delicious recipe to fit into our low fodmap/gluten free diet.
Adapted from recipe found on You Brew My Tea (

GF FODMAP-Friendly Bolangnese Sauce

This sauce is beyond delicious! It comes together quickly for a healthy family meal. Served with gluten free spaghetti (we use Barilla GF), this makes a wonderful meal that is both gluten free and low FODMAP. Enjoy!

GF Oat Flour Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

Delicious gluten free gumbo fresh from the Louisiana coast. My hubby adapted his family's traditional recipe to accommodate my gluten intolerance. DELICIOUS!!!

Gumbo is a traditional Cajun/Louisiana meal and is usually made in LARGE batches. At our house, my hubby makes a gigantic pot that sits slow simmering on the stove all weekend and our friends and family help themselves whenever they get hungry. Great food solution for our teenage son and his friends who seem to always be at our house and are ALWAYS hungry. LOL. Enjoy :)

Honey Almond & Pear Tart

Delicious gluten-free dessert. Make sure to pay attention to portion size...calories add up fast. Super sweet and delightful.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Amazing pumpkin bread found on
So moist...and NO OIL!!!! YAY :)

Garden French Bread Pizza

Delicious homemade french bread pizza that uses the fresh flavors of our favorite garden veggies. Great alternative to pizza with heavy sauces. Simple. Flavorful. Delicious.

Country Green Beans

These green beans are out of this world!!! With potatoes, onions, and bacon, these beans become a delicious side to any meal. They're even better the next day...or day after that! But, the best part is the pot liquor. It is so flavorful all of your guests will want a bowl to share it. The potatoes actually thicken the cooking water and turn the pot liquor into a simple soup. Delicious!!!

Lemon Ice Box Pie

Using my MIL's recipe.

Peachy Keen Crumble

This was made using cans of peaches and mandarin oranges out of my pantry.

Yummy Scrummy M&M Cookies

I make this dough in batches and freeze the dough balls for later. I bake a few cookies in my toaster oven each morning for my son's lunch. My son and his friends absolutely love these cookies.

Curves Vanilla Shake

Standard Curves Vanilla Shake with a little vanilla for extra flavor.

Low in Sweet Waffles

These whole-grain rich waffles are a filling start to the day. The waffles themselves have no sweetness. Feel free to add the toppings of your choice. My son likes his with country crock spread and sugar free syrup. I prefer mine with a few sprays of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and a little honey drizzled over. No matter what your finishing touch is, you are sure to enjoy these hearty waffles.

Ranch Crackers

These tasty little crackers are full of flavor and are a great (and inexpensive) snack to bring to parties, meetings, etc. This version uses herbs from the pantry (not a dressing mix). Sometimes you can find the oyster crackers at discount stores like Dollar Tree. I always keep a bag on hand for party-going emergencies :)

Dr. Farfapepper's Blindingly Bold Banana Pudding there's nothing really that special about this damage controlled version of banana son and I just like making up crazy names :)

Breakfast Baklava

OMGosh...this is the perfect breakfast for the sweets lovers out there. This recipe combines the classic method for French Toast with the essential flavors of Greek baklava to create a beautiful (and tasty) breakfast.

Mama Sunbeam's Spectacular Snack Bars

Awesome alternative to commercial granola bars. Filled with whole grain goodness and little sweet surprises throughout. Perfect for a school lunch, handbags, or your emergency stash in your snack drawer.

Tasty Taco Salad

Delicious recipe for Wendy's-type Taco Salad without meat.

Plain Ol Pancakes

Variation on classic recipe using alternative ingredients.

Peanut Berry Delight (It's a Sandwich)

This is so awesome. It has the salty goodness of the peanut butter and the sweetness of the strawberries all wrapped up in one handy dandy sandwich. Yum-O!

Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity Salad (1 cup)

I started making this "salad" in the early '80s as a child. It was even included in my mom's company's employee cookbook in '84 under the title "Janeal's Favorite Salad."

This version substitutes less-fat, less-sugar ingredients but keeps its yummy flavor. I hope you enjoy it!

P.S.- It's fun to make with kids.

Hungry Girl - I Heart Apple Slaw

From the cookbook: "Hungry Girl 200 Under 200" found on page 273.
