Allergy Friendly Friday


Thank you again to whomever it was that nominated this site to the Circle of Moms Top 25 Food Allergy Blogs list. I’d be honored to be in that top 25, so click on the badge above, and just scroll down till you hit my listing and click on vote, if you feel so inclined. Alternately, you can just click here. You can vote for it every day up until November 16th. And as mentioned earlier, with 25 slots to fill, there is room on that list for this blog and most of my food allergy blogger friends (girls, you know who you are!)

What an impressive lot of recipes you all have added over the last 2 weeks!  I’m going to have a very hard time just picking 4 featured recipes with so many beauties! Drumroll please….

My first pick for Allergy-Friendly Friday is this gorgeous Lemon Cake from Sheena Cucina. Lemon cake is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world.

Next I was wowed by these adorable seasonal Pumpkin Krispie Treats from Fresh4Five. These would be great on your Thanksgiving table as part of the dessert spread, don’t you think? Kids would love an alternative to pumpkin pie!

Then I noticed this innovative and warming Creamy Pumpkin Breakfast Cereal from Tessa the Domestic Diva.

And last, but certainly not least, I was drawn to these mega Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins from Gluten Freely Frugal.

These were just four of the many many wonderful allergy-free and gluten-free recipes you submitted over the past two weeks. Please come back with your links for this week! 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.

Allergy Friendly Friday


Check out this squash growing on the fence at my kids’ school!  Our edible schoolyard is really coming into fruition.  I love our “From the Ground Up!” program, and every year, I volunteer as the Garden Room Parent for both my kids’ classes.  It’s so exciting to see the kids weeding the beds, and digging in the dirt. Next month we’re putting in a worm farm. That should really get them enthused, don’t you think? (more…)

Allergy Friendly Friday


Uh oh, it’s Friday the 13th.  What do you have staged for today? I’m going to a Support our Schools rally, because the California Public Education Budget has been so drastically slashed that we’re in crisis.  I hope it goes well, given the looming bad luck date!  Luckily, there is another event on May 24, and Educate our State is hosting a virtual rally, so if you don’t feel like standing around chanting with sandwich boards, you can sign the petition online here.

But enough about the bummers.  Let’s talk about the thing we all come here for on Friday: FOOD!  First, I want to say, thank you to Ricki for her SOS challenge and sharing her carob cookie link. I am so excited that she’s featuring carob. People keep asking me what to do with my recipes if they’re allergic to chocolate. I am kind of a chocolate maniac. So I’ve been thinking a lot about carob, but haven’t ventured into its many facets yet. Thank you Ricki for the inspiration! So this week’s top featured recipes are:
