Carmelized Baked Chicken


  • 3 pounds chicken wings (we used 4 Chicken Quarters)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix together the oil, soy sauce, ketchup, honey, garlic, salt and pepper. Pour over the chicken.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for one hour, or until sauce is caramelized.

****Because Rob is Diabetic, we try to use minimal Honey, so we only added 1/3 cup Honey and 2/3 cup Agave Nectar.

Taco Rice

Taco Rice

2# Ground Turkey (you can use ground beef too) Seasoned with double batch of Lawry's Taco Seasoning
2 Cups Brown Rice
1 cup Lentils
1 Can Chili Ready Tomatoes
1 Can Diced Tomatoes
1 Large Can Green Chiles
Triple batch of Lawry's Taco Seasoning
Cheese to top

Cook Rice & Lentils together, in the meantime cook the turkey with the seasonings.  Once rice is finished cooking mix all ingredients together and cook until heated through and well blended.  Then top with cheese (we used Medium Cheddar & PepperJack for a little bit of a kick)

Then serve up, and stir in so the cheese goes through each serving
I like to mix a little sour cream in my serving as well.

You can substitute the Lentils for canned kidney or black beans, just add after the rice is cooked instead.

Popcorn alternative

I am and have always been a popcorn going grain free has been tough.  We found kind of an alternative Puffed Millet (we get it at Good Earth in their cereal section).  We melt a little butter, add garlic powder, sea salt and parsley then stir it into a bowl of puffed millet.  Then microwave until crisp usually 3 to 4 min but you stir it every 20 seconds or it will is not popcorn but it is yummy.

Homemade Grain Free Cheesy Crackers

Rob has been wanting to make crackers, so tonight he did!
He used each ingredient to taste lol.

Almond Flour
Cheese (we only had the sliced american)
Cheese Powder
Blend ingredients in a food processor, roll out and slice into squares with pizza cutter, then we put in the freezer for a few minutes to cool so we could easily break them apart, then arranged on a cookie sheet.
Baked at 350 for about 9 min
We are Rob & Heather, have been happily married for 8 years.
