Coconut Curried Chicken Thighs


As I’ve said before I’m a huge fan of Asian food.  So many delicious dishes with meat and seafood and lots of veges.  Miso soup and sushi…yum my mouth is watering.  I don’t know about you but every time I eat it whether it be Thai, Chinese or Japanese I get an upset stomach.  I’m not sure if its the oil they use or the soy sauce or the MSG… Read More


Grain-Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins


I really, really love muffins.  I really really love these Grain-Free pumpkin spice muffins.  I should have just named this blog Michelle’s muffins, but I figured I might get the wrong kind of followers  But seriously if you have a bag of grain-free slightly sweet healthy muffins lying over on the counter where the bite size brownies or chocolate chip cookies might be or god forbid something with frosting (my..

Slow-cooker Chicken Piccata


I am in love with my slow cooker.  I recently bought a new one on the recommendation of a friend that can brown the meat right in the crock pot.  You can find it here on Amazon.  I found that when a recipe called for me to brown the meat first I never did it because I didn’t want to waste a pan (and I’m lazy) so I’d just throw..

Grain-free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

So this is my first food post, yay!  These beautiful grain-free banana chocolate chip muffins are one of my favorites.  These are for all the nay-sayers who tell me “I can’t live without baked good, I could never give up grains!”  I get oh’s and ah’s when I make these and most people are amazed they don’t contain grain flour!  Why do I personally try to avoid flour in my..

Carrot-Sweet Potato Muffins


I’m a huge muffin person.  I always make them mini because I never want to eat one regular size muffin.  Two mini’s does it for me, and if I end up eating four which might equal one big one, I still feel like I ate less!  It gives you options.  A lot of eating is emotional, a lot of managing your eating is self-control and a lot of eating is perception… Read More
