This week, I had the pleasure of a visit from Lori Corbin – The Food Coach from ABC7 here in LA. I’ve been hoping The Food Coach would pay me a visit since my last book, so was really thrilled when I got the call that Lori was coming over to check out my new Allergy-Friendly Asian recipes for Chinese New Year, from my new book Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking. For more about the interview, and the recipes featured in this video, plus tips on how to celebrate an allergy-free Chinese New Year, please see the article here.

TGIAFF, right? I’m ready to sleep in for a couple of days. And eat some comfort foods. February really is comfort food month, isn’t it? What’s your favorite comfort food? Mine is Shepherd’s Pie. (I’ve got a great new 30 minute Shepherd’s Pie recipe coming to you in my new book, btw) Let’s make the theme of this week’s Allergy Friendly Friday COMFORT FOODS. Allergy-free and/or gluten-free comfort foods. Bring on what you got! I want to sit in front of my TV and eat it!
Thanks for all your great recipe links this past week! I am putting on my nagging hat for a moment: Some great recipes were posted last week, that I would have LOVED to feature, but there were no hyperlinks back to Allergy Friendly Friday. Please remember that for me to feature your recipe, it has to link back to AFF. Okay, nagging hat is coming off again. Some great gluten-free and/or allergy-friendly recipes from last week’s Allergy-Friendly Friday roundup were:
- Spinach Artichoke Dip from Gluten-Free Cat
- Baked Garlic Tomato Salmon (I’m allergic to salmon, not severely, but enough so that I can’t eat it anymore. This has been the hardest of my food allergies for me to live with. I love salmon. This recipe looks beautiful!) from The Liberated Kitchen
- Leslie and Rick’s Homemade Yogurt (the name amused me!) from Sensitive Economist
- Gluten-Free Banana Oatmeal Muffins from PeanutButter, Passports, and Epinephrine (more…)
Allergy Friendly Friday
This is the first Allergy-Friendly Friday post of the new year. I don’t know about you, but I need to revamp my diet a bit after way too much celebratory eating and drinking. I don’t really fit into my pants right now. At least not my muffin top. Tomorrow, I go back to Los Angeles, and I am promising myself a little healthy restraint. Can you help me out by posting your lightest, healthiest, most diet-friendly allergy-free and gluten-free recipes? I would be so grateful! (more…)
