Pho Nouveau

Joel and I went to lunch in downtown Boise at Pho Nouveau.  I ordered the chicken curry.  It was very yummy.  Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, Scallions, and Chicken in a Coconut Milk Sauce with Yellow Curry.  They serve it with bread, but I got Jasmine Rice instead.  They serve it with a little bowl that has salt, red pepper flakes, and a lime that you squeeze on the salt.  You're supposed to dip the chicken in the lime/salt concoction.  It was like a party in your mouth!  :)  A very enjoyable lunch.  Joel got the Chicken and Spring Roll Noodle bowl.  Very fresh and light.

Long Time

It's been forever since I blogged. My life has completely turned around since the last time. I'm recently engaged to a wonderful man who loves to cook (safe for me!). I feel so blessed. He's already created several of his own allergy-free recipes. As we move forward together in life, we will be blogging many of the new, fun recipes we try and invent.

I'll keep you posted. :)

GF Vegan Pasta with Roasted Vegetables

This was my first time cooking with eggplant. I was a little nervous, so I think I cut it too small. It kind of disappeared into the mixture when cooked. But overall, it was pretty good. I took the recipe from, and left out a few of their ingredients and added a few of my own (I can never seem to follow a recipe without tweaking it!).

I've had a few rough days/weeks as far as food goes. Yes, I've created some delicious (and safe!) treats within that time span, but I've also encountered some allergens. And I've been invited to several very well-meaning people's homes for meals (which is very difficult). I never know what to do with myself in those situations. I don't want to turn down hospitality, but I really don't want to suffer for weeks on end just from eating one meal. I feel really bad when I have to explain my allergies. I've also been feeling really embarrassed, and I'm not really sure how to deal with that one. It revolves around my allergic reactions, mostly. I've been getting really self-conscious since my face erupted, and I really hate meeting new people when I look like this. It's like I want to say to everyone: "it's so nice to meet you - I don't normally look like this!" Then I want to explain my allergies so that they know this is not normal. I don't know what to do. I can't seem to figure out why I'm having so many problems. I feel lost.
