Happy Friday, Allergy-friendly Folks!
Hope everyone is enjoying these first weeks of spring. Has anyone found anything popping up in their produce section or farmer’s markets of note? I’m waiting eagerly for asparagus and strawberries. I would like to make a plea to all you fabulous cooks out there that we SPRING into ACTION, and start cooking up an allergy-friendly new produce storm.
This ALLERGY FRIENDLY FRIDAY LINKY PARTY WILL RUN FOR TWO WEEKS. I WILL POST THE HIGHLIGHTS ON APRIL 26th, SO LINK AWAY!
I will be in CHICAGO next weekend (Saturday and Sunday 20-21st), at the Gluten and Allergen-Free Expo giving out samples and COUPONS (yay!) for my Cybele’s Free-to-Eat Cookies, so for anyone in the greater Chicago area, please come visit me at booth #218!

That means link WITH A HYPERLINK THAT LINKS BACK HERE. When you link back to this post, you can share both your own and everybody else’s.And remember, I specialize in creating gluten-free recipes that are free of the top 8 food allergens, but yours do not have to be. They just have to be allergy-friendly in SOME way.
- Please link back to this post so your readers can find all the recipes. This is a sharing page.
- Link to your recipe, not to your homepage.
- Recipes do not have to be completely allergen-free, just allergy-friendly in some way.

Allergy Friendly Friday
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.
