Tuna and Egg Salad Sandwich

When I first had a tuna fish salad sandwiches out, it didn’t have egg in it. I soon realized eggs were not normally added to tuna fish salad. I wondered if it was just something common to the South, but when I searched online, tuna fish sandwiches don’t list eggs as and ingredient. My mother […]

Low FODMAP Sheet Dinner

I wanted to make an easy dinner and make it low FODMAP. I looked in the fridge and considered my options. I decide on a sheet dinner with chicken, carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, and potatoes.

Southwestern BLT Sandwich

Malaysian Chicken Satay

This is based on a “Cook’s Illustrated” recipe. I didn’t have several of the ingredients on hand, so this is what I used. It came out beautifully and so good. Bruce did the actual skewering and grilling. This meant dinner was ready when I finished work. Serves 4 to 6
