Chicken Tortilla Soup
1 lb chicken (boneless, skinless breasts)
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 10 oz can enchilada sauce (make sure it’s gluten free if that’s an issue for you!)
1 medium onion
1 4 oz can chopped green chilies
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 bay leaf
2 cups frozen corn
1 TBS chopped Cilantro (for garnish)
Corn Tortilla chips
Put all ingredients in a gallon zip lock bag (except the cilantro and tortillas) and freeze. Thaw and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-5 hours. Shred chicken after cooking, serve with cilantro and crushed tortilla chips.

We’ve been introducing new foods to Riley very slowly. With the family history of allergies and his already found sensitivity to dairy through my milk and his eczema, his pediatrician and Landon’s allergy doctor want us to just go slow with food, especially those top 8.
For the longest time (it seems) we’ve just been doing single food meals, some combinations (like applesauce in his oatmeal) but we’ve just recently gotten enough foods that I can start making “baked goods” for him. So far the really “baked good” he’s had have been Mum Mums, which let me tell you are super awesome for starting self feeders. They are easy to hold and really melt the second they get wet. They have also have Original and Vegetable flavors. They also sell them by the case and if you use the subscribe and save option they’re even cheaper.
Today I made these Oats and ‘Nanner Drops found here. They were a success! They are like the texture of a chewy oatmeal cookie. There’s other recipes I have from Landon that I’m anxious to start trying (and sharing with you!)
With breakfast being the most important meal of the day, we don’t have much in the way of foods for breakfast other than the scones and muffins, so I thought I would share some of the cereals that we have found to be “safe”.
Below you will find a list of cereals that we have found to be gluten, dairy, and soy free. Following the list I have also included a majority of the nutritional information for each of the cereals.
Ice cream is one of those thing you really miss being dairy free. There are a ton of dairy free ice cream recipes, but they all call for soy – or egg. Now I do have to say if you don’t like bananas, you may not like this. We are going to experiment with this and see if a different fruit would work as the base. We use out 1 1/2 quart ice cream freezer, but I’m sure you could just freeze it in a freezer safe container as well.
