LoSo Sheet Pizza

Pizza is without a doubt my favorite food. But a fast food slice of cheese pizza can come in at a whopping 1,000mg sodium per slice! That’s insane!   I’ve GOT to get my pizza! We’ve been messing around with a bunch of different doughs and this one has been our favorite! We precook it […]

Baked Lemon Chicken

As my kidney disease has progressed, I have gotten more and more exhausted. This means less energy to cook-noooooooo! I’ve needed to come up with easy, quick recipes to make my life easier but also feed my family. I don’t know about you but my kids seem to be always starving. This baked lemon chicken […]

Buffalo Chicken Soup

My husband loves all things buffalo chicken. I’ve attempted many different recipes with the Buffalo sauce as the hero: Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas and now this soup. I have to say, I haven’t found an excellent Buffalo Wing sauce here in Oklahoma. I tend to go for the sauce with the least amount […]

Pad Thai

Do you ever crave a dish so much that you can’t relax until you eat it? No? Only me? Okay, well, the girls in the office heated up some left over Pad Thai and boy, did it smell good! I had to have some! I couldn’t get it out of my mind. I could almost […]

Chicken Pot Pie

  Chicken Pot Pie is my daughter’s favorite dinner. She asks for it all the time, no matter the season. I feel like this is the perfect fall recipe, but she’s a fan all year round. I remember the first time I ate homemade chicken pot pie when I was a kid. It was creamy […]

Italian Wedding Soup

  I found this delicious soup on www.gourmet.com and modified it to be low sodium. For this version, I used store bought meatballs because it made my life easier, but I prefer it with homemade ground turkey meatballs because they are way lower sodium and way lower fat and I can eat more of them. […]

Chili Rellenos

    My husband started craving chili rellenos, but couldn’t find one that actually tasted decent. He bought one at the store that literally had no flavor and just tasted like a soggy heap of not-food. gross. This happened right about the time I created the Down the Hatch Salsa. So a light bulb went […]

Lentil Soup

  The weather is consistently cooling down in this part of the world, making me crave soups and crusty breads. The leaves are starting to fade to brown. We don’t have a gorgeous fall rainbow of turning leaves like I did growing up in upstate NY, but the fall season is still my favorite. My […]

3 Bean Chili

    I don’t know about you, but as soon as it starts to cool down, I want to make chili. It seems like the perfect fall recipe…so warm and yummy and filling. Of course, I like to add cheese and low sodium fritos (and rice if I’m trying to fill up the kids, which […]
