This week has seen a return to the kitchen, a return of inspiration to actually cook, and a return of new recipes posted to the blog.

Sadly, it also saw a return of a large number of my food sensitivities.

Damn you stress. Damn you.

As a result, I’m back on the Nightshade Free bandwagon. I’m also back on the Dairy Free bandwagon (never really got off that one), the Corn Free bandwagon, the Gluten Free bandwagon, and the Sugar Free bandwagon.

Sounds like fun, right?

The good news is, I’m enjoying the challenge of menu planning within the limitations above. And trying so many new recipes.

Like this one for roasted sweet potatoes. We paired them with some bison burgers (no bun for me). You can pair it with whatever you like.
