Thanks for your comment. If you look through my recipes on my site, you'll notice I have a large variety of different type recipes. With all the food allergies and sensitivities that you listed; I am hesitant to make any type recommendations for you. I use a lot of healthy whole foods and ingredients in my cooking such as the things you listed you can't eat. But one of the great things about almost every recipe I create is you can often make substitutions that you are currently using that work well for your dietary needs.
I cannot thank you enough for all the creative ideas you have shared! You are truly a blessing to many.

That's so sweet of you. I could not do what I do without all the people, like you, that bless me daily.
I think I'll try the cast iron skillet chicken thighs first - they sound awesome! Plus, with only 5 ingredients, I know it won't be too difficult.
