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:

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!

Our team in the Kitchen at the GF/AF EXPO Dallas: Chef Castano Penn, Chef Denise O’Dean SanFilippo, and Chef David Shaw

Last Friday, I traveled to Dallas for the Gluten and Allergen-Free Expo and Vendor Fair, which was a smashing success, with over 2000 visitors passing through the vendor fair, and all the cooking classes extremely well attended. I spent a good 10 hours baking and cooking in the kitchen you see pictured above, and quite literally never left the hotel once all weekend!  I walked through the doors at 4:00pm on Friday, and walked out at 1:00pm Sunday, got back in my rental car, and drove back to the airport. It was a great weekend, but a crying shame I never got to see a glimpse of the city, particularly since both my maternal grandparents were from Texas, albeit, Amarillo, which they always described as “dust-bowl”.
