Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

These cookies are a staple in our house. We make them on a regular basis. They are simply delicious!

They are soft and really tasty. Ingredients: 1 stick of unsalted butter 1/2 cup of brown sugar 1/2 cup of white sugar 1 cup of flour 1 egg 1/2 {Read More}

Salt-Free Baked Chicken with Roasted Vegetables

It has taken me a whole year to learn to eat without salt.  This is my favorite dish that I have perfected when it comes to cooking with no salt.  It takes times to adjust to food with no salt or sodium.  There is already sodium content in raw chicken.  Most foods will naturally contain a certain sodium amount even before you start prepping it for cooking.  This is really a good thing, though.  I have learned that the key {Read More}
