Learning to cook the food I like to eat…

Adjusting to new allergies… and planning for 2014

Posted by jenskitchen on January 15, 2014

Yes. I’ve not been a good blogger. I started off hoping to chronicle my adventures in learning how to cook for myself. Believe me, I’ve come a long way! But somewhere in the middle of THAT journey, I found myself on a variety of paths that have brought me back to learning how to cook again. This time, I am learning how to cook not only Gluten-Free, but also: Corn-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Fish-Free, Peanut-Free, and Tree-Nut-Free. Oh, and let’s not forget: free of cranberries, cucumbers, bananas, pineapple, cabbage, pears, strawberries, and sesame seeds. That’s only when it’s just the two of us – the little sous chef and me.  Update: The allergist has said no restriction on eggs and fish for now. 

Oh… and, I’m trying to cook every meal, every day, while dealing with the pain, exhaustion, and confusion of Fibromyalgia. Because life is all about the challenges, right?

So, I’m learning new things and cooking in new ways. I hope to have some recipes to share soon – especially some Asian-inspired dishes. I’ve almost figured out my son’s favorite – Orange Chicken. The little sous chef is celebrating his seventh birthday soon, so I should have an allergy-friendly birthday cake as well.
