Healthy Eating and Whole Grains

Whole grains are one of the easiest things that you can add to your diet to make it healthier and it is one of my food goals for the new year. I now eat gluten free due to some health issues, so whole grains are a bit more challenging to incorporate into my diet, but I am going to do my best at experimenting more with the […]

Homemade Cream Of Chicken and Cream Of Mushroom Soup


Last week when I wrote Cream Soups: Good or Bad, I had no idea I would have the response that I did. It was very interesting to read through all the comments and learn how many of you love and use them, but also how many of you avoid them and make your own. Some of you left comments, or sent me an email, asking about […]

Homemade Taco Sauce Recipe

Mexican Pizza

My family loves the Mexican Pizzas that I make. Since they are a copycat type recipe, I have been buying and using the taco sauce you buy in a jar at the store. We liked the famous fast food restaurant brand best, so that is what I was buying, and it worked well. Every time I bought the sauce though, I would think about how […]

Gluten Free Melt Down


Yesterday I had a major meltdown, seriously I stood with my pantry door open looking at all the food I could not eat and cried.  This gluten free diet is more challenging than I thought it would be. Temporary or not this is hard. I feel like I am learning to cook and eat all over again. I had no I idea how much stuff contained wheat, […]

A Glimpse Into Real Life

There is no menu plan this week. I needed a break from menu planning to step back and figure out a few things.  Last week’s plan did not go at all as planned and to be honest I am not sure what this week’s meals will look like.  The name of my site is “Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures” and over the next few weeks I will […]

Easy Homemade Berry Yogurt


I have been eating homemade yogurt since I was a kid. I was a very sickly child.  I had a lot of health problems and allergies,that are to long to describe in this post, but because of this my mom made almost all of our food from scratch.  She made the majority of her baked goods with whole grains and honey and she made everything she […]

Homemade Vanilla Update


Back in March, I posted about making homemade vanilla extract.  I know several many people thought this was a strange idea.  I am pretty sure my sisters thought I was a bit crazy for making it.  But I really want to make most of our food from scratch and making homemade vanilla is so simple to do. I figured it was an easy thing make myself. […]

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Cookies

WW cinnamon cookies

My son loves cinnamon, anything cinnamon. He loves cinnamon toast, cinnamon bread, cinnamon rolls. You get the idea. He enjoys snickerdoodle cookies. I enjoy them too, but I wanted something a little different. So I tweaked my favorite snickerdoodle recipe to come up something a little healthier. This recipe uses whole wheat flour and incorporates cinnamon into the batter instead of rolling the dough into […]

Soy Sauce

soy sauce

In my effort to avoid a lot of processed foods, I have been reading a lot of labels. This has made me aware of things like vanilla that contain things like corn syrup. One of the labels I never thought to check though was soy sauce. I mean it is soy sauce right? No, it is not. I read an article by Kimi this week […]
