  1. I always have to look to spell your name. My brain calls you Sea Ideas ALL the time.

    1. AesSedai

      AesSedai

      LOL I see why!

      It's from a book.

      How old is that little one of yours? I had baby in my mind, but if already a wheat allergy has been diagnosed, maybe  I am mistaken?

  2. I am not oppsed to the elderly and other people in general loving on her. But I stop everybody if I can to let them know that if they are sick they can harm her because of her heart defect. She is also allergic to wheat and when I have to decline, Ivehad no problem with telling people that either. No one has ever been NOT understanding at all. Yesterday in the grocery store she was crying loudly because she did not get a balloon and a lovely young man (20ish) with down syndrome, just ambled over and gave her a huge hug. I am sitting here with crossed fingers that he wasnt sick! LOL but this is life and you can spoil away @AesSedai I am always watching her so I am not having any trouble with anyone at all. I am one of those older moms though :D
  3. Very nice! Share share share! :D ...... added to this post 0 minutes later: MMM Pictures of steak and these fondant potatoes. Get crackin! :D
  4. Thank. I figure a lot of us in here really enjoy cooking, baking, and creating. The INTJ Iron chef battles really limit what we can put up to post. While they are fun, I hope more people participate in this thread. I LOVE seeing what other people are doing, too!
  5. I put on a vanilla spray after I shower, before I go to bed. Same reason as the person above. Its pleasant when I wake in the night. Soothing. It lingers ever so slightly the rest of the next day. I like it. I LOVE when the husband uses his scented body wash. Its some weird thing with cracked black pepper... yea.. anyway I Like the smell of his deodorants too. Ah well.
  6. Coconut Thai Chicken Curry (I forgot to take pictures of the WHOLE process again. OPPS!) A little goat cheese on top because.. I could! Ingredients: 2 boneless sknless chicken breasts, cubed EVOO a thumb sized nub of ginger, chopped finely 1 large vidalia onion Salt & Pepper 3 cloves of garlic minced Curry Powder (2-3 tbsp) A large handful of shredded carrot (I bought mine preshredded because I am lazy today!) 2 red bell peppers chopped 1 bunch fresh cilantro, Chopped 2 cans coconut milk (NOT the light stuff!) 1 lime 3 tbsp brown sugar ( I did not USE this today because I was making this meal keto, but it is definitely missing this final touch!) Method: Chop and mince everything BEFORE you start. Make life easy, ok? Add the evoo to a large pot or everything pan. Brown your chicken with a little salt and pepper and at the end, throw in the ginger and garlic and cook for 2-3 more minutes on med. or lower. Remove chicken and leave all excess juices and stray ginger and garlic in the bottom of the pan/pot. Add in the onion, red bell pepper, and carrots with another small sprinkle of salt to help the veggies break down. When everything is nice and soft and translucent etc, add 2-3 TBSP of your curry powder. (Use your fav). Stir well, then add in the coconut milk. Dont worry, it is SUPPOSED to separate in the can like that. Just mix it all in well and it will turn out fine, I promise. Use a hand blender and chop it all up into fine bits right there in the pot. If you dont have a hand blender.... I guess you could eat it as is, but its much nicer to have it itty bitty. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the chicken back in, then your Cilantro. stir well. Cut lime in half and squeeze the juice in from both halves. Finally.... add in your brown sugar. Start with 1 tbsp, and then taste test ... but dont go over 3.. that would be WAY too sweet. I topped mine with some goat cheese from the fridge, because I wanted to. Completely unnecessary.
  7. Ground beef recipe right there! YUM YUM!!
  8. As a pasta fanatic (I often make my own) and a celiac, I HIGHLY recommend Tinkyada brand noodles/pasta. Great product nd TASTES great..AND has the right texture. None of that corn and amaranth whatever ....
  9. There are quite a few of us that love to cook and/or bake. I love sharing the things I have made with everyone. Directions for this post are simple. Pictures of your process and finished product and the recipe with directions. Food and even great drinks or shakes are all applicable. If you only have a finished product picture, I am sure we will all be fine with that too but it is certainly more fun to show us all HOW you did it. ...... added to this post 9 minutes later: and now let me be guilty of not photographing the process. These just came out of my oven! Blackberry Lemon Scones (gluten free) Ingredients: 4 Cups of flour (to make them gluten free, use Cup4Cup GF flour) 2/3 cup sugar 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp kosher salt 1 tsp baking soda 16 tbsp (2 short sticks) cold butter 1 cup sour cream 2 eggs 2 grated lemon peel from whole lemons fresh blackberries ( however many you think will be tasty! Sugar for sprinkling before the final bake Method: Preheat the oven to 400F. Whisk together all the dry ingredients except the extra sugar, save that for the end. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, sour cream, and lemon peel. Set aside. Use a box grater and QUICKLY grate the butter over the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or even a fork, if you like, to the butter is in pea sized chucks within the flour mixture. Pour in wet stuff and stir until it comes together. Lightly flour a LARGE cutting board and cut the dough in half. With each half, gently fold in your berries and do NOT over knead. 3-5 "squishes" should be sufficient. DO the same with the other half. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 1 at a time, form into about an 8 inch circle and cut into 8 triangles. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 14-18 minutes. EAT
  10. This is strictly dependent upon where you live but you may have community FB pages. FOr instance, I live in "this place" and I am on the FB "this place Community". EVery single day there are recommendations on local places for EVERYTHING... every kind of maintenance or class you can think of. People ask, community members answer. You would have to wait to be approved into the group because they check your address usually. BUT.. I have no idea if you live in a big enough community to have such a thing.
  11. Made some goat cheese stuffed sweet cherry peppers with balsamic reduction. Recipe in my blog.
  12. Brava @yes great job on the pretty AND healthy!

  15. The answer is, I do not know. What I DO know is that formula is laregly based on corn products. Doesnt matter which brand you go with. I did not want to give it to my baby.
