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:
Allergy Friendly Friday
Today is April 29th, the day I was supposed to be born. (I was born 2 days early on April 27th). But I still always think of April 29th as my supposed-to-be birthday. In honor of birthdays, let’s post celebratory allergy-free recipes this week… anything you might want to make on somebody’s special day. This could be anything from a special breakfast, to a festive lunch, to a dessert. Anything is fair game! And if you’re not into that theme, then Cinco de Mayo is coming up next week, so what might you be making for that?
And speaking of festive recipes, last weeks lineup was chock-full of them. Some real highlights were:
- Vegan Coconut Macaroons for Passover from Recipes Reinvented
- Dairy Free Easter Fudge from Whole New Mom
- Hot Cross Buns from Cooking Without Ingredients
- Easter Chocolate Muffins from The Intolerant Gourmet
- Spring Salad with Fresh Corn and Asparagus from The Allergic Kid
Have you seen my Gluten-Free Vegan Sweet Noodle Kugel recipe over at Whole Living Daily yet? Did you know I also blog over there, twice a month? This Kugel was hard won, and took many tries, but the final result had me wanting to sit down with a fork and eat the whole casserole. (Oh, wait, I did)
And what about my Allergy-Free Brisket Tsimmes recipe over at Foodista? Yes, I also blog over there, once a month! Oy veh! Whether or not you are celebrating Passover, this recipe is a must try.
But enough about my recipes, let’s talk about yours!
Last week’s Allergy Friendly Friday had some awe-inspiring recipes links. Some of the top highlights were:
- Dairy-Free Cadbury Creme Eggs from Live Free Gluten Free
- Raw Strawberry Lemon Cheesecake, GF from Hecka-Good-Recipes
- Silky Smooth Bean Fudge from Whole New Mom
- Gluten, Dairy, and Egg-free Fluffy Pancakes from Allergy Free Cooking
- Indian Spiced Chicken Burgers from Plan to Eat
Please add your links for this week. Please link back to this post so you can share both your own and other’s fabulous allergy-friendly recipes. 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.
