If you've been following along lately you can see that Mr. Charming and I have been traveling a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. I'm currently battling a cold from exhaustion and easy foods are at the top of my list right now. I am living on a lot of soup and bone broth and I wanted to find some easy meals to prep for Mr. Charming as I get better.
That, and since traveling so much, I really missed our kitchen and making new recipes. As Mr. Charming is a chicken fan, I was happy when I found Foster Farm's Gluten-Free Chicken Strips at our local market, but instead of serving them plain, as tasty as they are, I wanted to jazz them up a bit.
Enter my sauce trio.
Oh, Honey!, Soy Very Saucy & my bold Hottie Sauce were my latest concoctions and you can find the recipes below.
And yes, I totally named my sauces. Basic dishes need fancy names in my opinion. It just makes them fun.
Unsure how my trio would be received (because, I don't know if you're like me, but when I make a new dish I'm always afraid people won't like them or "get them") I was so pleased when the taste test was met with wide eyes and a "wow!" from my groom. Feeding him healthy and yummy meals just makes a girl feel better.
The Foster Farms gluten-free chicken strips are approved by the Gluten Intolerance Group to be gluten-free and the meat is humanely raised and antibiotic free. You can find more information on their gluten-free chicken nuggets, chicken strips & corn dogs by clicking here.

1 cup basil
1 clove garlic
salt & pepper to taste
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
In a food processor pulse basil, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil while pulsing. Store in a sealed container and refrigerate until ready to use or you can freeze this in ziplock bags to use at a later date.
6 ounces tomato paste
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
2 tbsp of your preferred sugar substitute (optional)
2 tbsp onions
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp sea salt
Combine ingredients in food processor and blend until the onion disappears. Spoon mixture into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. For more of my story you can click here.
All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
