Gordita Tortillas

It was time.  I wanted a big, fat, chewy tortilla.  For many years, Hubs and I lived in Arizona, where beautiful, authentic Mexican cuisine was never more than 36 inches from my reach.  How I have missed it!  And now that I’ve adopted a whole new way of eating, most Mexican food is off limits. … Continue reading Gordita Tortillas

It’s slurpy, it’s messy and I’ve missed it.  I never knew that nightshades were an issue for me until going AIP, and when I discovered it, I was crushed.  I LOVE tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, tomatillos and eggplant.  I’ve grown gobs of the aforementioned, and canned some, too.  And the sauces!  Oh, the sauces… Drool. Well, … Continue reading AIP Spaghetti Sauce
