How I Cured My Four-Year-Long Tomato Allergy

For 4 years, between the summer of 2017 – summer of 2021, I had been allergic to tomatoes. Thankfully, those days have ended. And I will share with you what I’ve learned, have done, and the process behind it.

A Hack for Unique Ravioli

Back in late 2018, my family and I took a trip to Ireland. The first night there, we ate at an Italian restaurant, where I consumed purple potato filled ravioli in either an oil or cream sauce. I enjoyed it enough that I wanted to cook my own version of it at home. I preparedContinue reading “A Hack for Unique Ravioli”

Items I Want to Cook During My Lifetime

Oftentimes, when we hear the word, “bucket-list,” we think of traveling. But who says that you can’t have a bucket list for cooking? Yes, you read that right. There are so many items I want to learn how to cook, but are either too time-consuming or are too difficult. Most of these foods I’ve triedContinue reading “Items I Want to Cook During My Lifetime”

Pasta and Pepper Vodka Sauce… Pretty Delicious?

Once again, there is no tomato in this sauce due to my tomato allergy. It’s with bell peppers. Other times, this sauce tasted good. However, today, not so much. I don’t know what it was.

Mmm… Meaty Marinara Without Tomato

Before I became allergic to tomatoes, I really enjoyed Pizza Hut’s meaty marinara. However, since then, I had to make my own versions of my favorite foods that normally contain tomatoes, except without them. Sadly, they usually don’t taste very good. Or they will only be similar at most. But even that is not satisfying.Continue reading “Mmm… Meaty Marinara Without Tomato”

Doesn’t that look delicious? If you say so, then you’re with me. In fact, as the title says, that is not regular macaroni in the picture. It’s made out of brown rice. It tastes pretty good, believe it or not. And best of all, the pasta is only a few ingredients, such as brown rice and water.Continue reading “Mmmm… Mac and Cheese Made of Brown Rice Pasta”

Making Mac and Cheese Without Following a Recipe

Yeah, you read that right. You probably would look at me like I had four heads. But I assure you that this is correct. It’s no easy task making a meal without a recipe. However, the reason I did that was because I couldn’t find the recipe anymore. Thankfully, though, I’ve used that one enoughContinue reading “Making Mac and Cheese Without Following a Recipe”

How I Made My Gnocchi Healthier

I love gnocchi! I used to order it a lot in restaurants, if they had it, before I developed a tomato allergy.  For some reason, however, I couldn’t find the traditional potato kind at my local grocery store. So, I made it from scratch, which I have done several times before. But this one differed. Continue reading “How I Made My Gnocchi Healthier”
