This recipe is AIP (autoimmune protocol) friendly. All ingredients are rough-chopped, taking into account that many people on the AIP diet, as I am, suffer from joint-related illnesses, making it hard to spend time finely dicing veggies. An added bonus is that this recipe is also kosher if you follow Jewish dietary laws.
This was made utilizing leftover chicken that had been smoked/grilled the previous evening. We have a Char-Broil Tru-Infrared Grill/Smoker/Roaster and it has literally changed the way we eat. We grill out practically every day, have become wood chip connoisseurs (hickory is the way to go if you’re curious), and are always experimenting with grilling. If it can be put on a grate, wrapped in foil, or put on a skewer, we’re going to grill it!

We are (prayerfully, hopefully, God-willing) closing on our house a month from tomorrow, which means it’s time to pack. It also means that I need to use up everything in my cupboards, fridge, and freezer, because even though we’re only moving 50.4 miles away, I’m not moving our food.

We got invited to a 4th of July picnic this afternoon and our host is diabetic, so I scrambled to come up with something that is both yummy, pretty diabetic-friendly, and doesn’t require me to turn on the oven. (We’re having a heat wave here in the northwest and, without air conditioning, it’s about 89 degrees in the house.)
I love ambrosia salad and, with a few modifications, I made it relatively diabetic-friendly.

We’re blessed to live down the street from a major farmers market, and last fall, I purchased several pounds of ground lamb. Tim refuses to eat it so it’s taken me a while to get through it all, but since he was away for the weekend, I decided to put it to good use.
The following was quick, easy, and completely delicious. Use what you have on hand, but if you have some lamb, definitely try it out this way!

Today’s mass market deodorant is full of aluminum, perfume, and a dozen other unpronounceable ingredients. If you’re like me, your body has said, “Nope, no way!” and it’s gone on strike, leaving you with red, itchy armpits that are only soothed by a rough scrubbing in the shower. Also, if you really are like me, you’ve tried the natural stuff, too – the Tom’s, the crystal – and have ended up with the same angry pits. So where do you go from there?

I made this chili this weekend and it was so delicious that I wanted to share. And it makes a lot of food (as you’ll see from the pictures below), so you’ll be eating it for a few days!
