Allergy Friendly Friday 4/20/12 and 4/27/12 Birthday Recipes



I just looked at the calendar, and realized, it’s one week away from my birthday. EEK! Time for reassessment of life goals: am I where I want to be; how can I be better (or “betterer”, as my teacher, the great playwright Marsha Norman used to say); how can I achieve more balance in my life? Oh, screw all that, the real question is, “What do I want to eat for my birthday?!”

When I was a kid, my brother and I shared a birthday party, since our birthdays were only two weeks apart. We would throw a big shindig picnic party, and my mother would make Southern Fried Chicken (the kind you shake up in a big paper bag), a Mahogany Fudge Cake for me, and an Orange Layer Cake for my brother Dylan.  Then we would make homemade strawberry and vanilla ice cream with the old fashioned ice-cream maker, where you surround the tub with salt, and crank it. My dad was in charge of that part of the party, and it was always a big hit with the kids.  And that’s still my idea of a bang-up party, and the ideal birthday meal.

I will be traveling across the country next Friday, so I think it would be fun to have Allergy-Friendly Friday go for two weeks this round. LET’S HAVE A TWO WEEK VIRTUAL BIRTHDAY PARTY!   Please feel free to post two recipes, since it’s running two weeks.  I’ll follow up with highlights on May 4th.  And here’s the theme: For Allergy-Friendly Friday these next two weeks, let’s post BIRTHDAY THEMED RECIPES. ANYTHING YOU WANT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY OR WOULD MAKE FOR SOMEBODY ELSE. BRING ON YOUR BEST ALLERGY-FRIENDLY, AND/OR GLUTEN-FREE BIRTHDAY RECIPES. IT’S THE BIRTHDAY RECIPE ROUNDUP!

Thanks for your flexibility last week, allowing me to host Allergy-Friendly Saturday, for once. A little change is good, sometimes! This week’s Allergy-Friendly Friday roundup highlights were:

Please add your allergy-free and/or gluten-free recipe links to Allergy-Friendly Friday. PLEASE remember you have to link back from your post, for me to feature your recipe. That means link WITH A HYPERLINK THAT LINKS BACK HERE. When you link back to this post, you can share both your own and other’s fabulous allergy-friendly recipes. Am I repeating myself? 🙂 And remember, I specialize in creating gluten-free recipes that are free of the top 8 food allergens, but yours don’t have to be. They just have to be allergy-friendly in SOME way.




  • Please LINK  back to this post so that your readers can find ALL the recipes linked to here. This is a sharing page.
  • Link to your individual recipe post, NOT your homepage.
  • Recipes DO NOT have to be completely allergen-free, just “ALLERGY-FRIENDLY” in some way.
  • When you link, let us know who you are.  For example, I might add old fashioned gingersnaps (cybele

    My favorite birthday treat is pumpkin pie, so, even though it’s kind of out of season, maybe I’ll work on a pumpkin pie to share. Never got around to it in the fall…

    Thanks again!!

    Hi! Happy Birthday Cybele! Hope you have an awesome day! Since it’s a birthday party I’m sharing my SCD Toffee Ice Cream recipe from last year (it’s been here before).

    Thank you so much for highlighting my grain free sponge recipe! I wish I could bake you a birthday cake with it but you wouldn’t be able to eat it!

    Have a lovely couple of weeks! Be safe!

      No worries, we can always repost the good ones, right? Toffee ice cream rocks! When I was a kid, my favorite candy bar was heath bar toffee crunch. Remember those, anyone?
