One of the Few Restaurants that Get It

Have you given up on eating out all together with food allergies? For my son, we still do not let him eat at restaurants. Unfortunately, his allergies are so severe that the risk of cross contamination is not worth taking. However, for my allergies, it is a different story. Mine are not quite as severe even though I am Celiac and have various other food issues. That being said, if you ever get a chance to eat at LuLu's be sure to do it! This is one of the best restaurants for food allergies I … [Read more...]

Homemade Sunbutter Pie

My son's school recently celebrated Pi Day and, provided they memorized the first 20 digits of pi, they were all able to homemade pies. I told my son about it and let the school know I'd be bringing a pie but in all honesty, I had no earthly idea how I was going to make it. I ran through all the fruit based option with my son and he was not interested at all. Eventually, I began to think of my favorite pies. Years ago, I had a peanut butter pie and it was amazing. I start wondering if I could … [Read more...]

Allergy Friendly Homemade Peppermint Marshmallows

Hot chocolate is one of my favorite things. Favorite. Things. The second the temperature hits around 65 degrees, that's cold enough for me to grab the hot chocolate in the mornings.

The thing is, I don't stop there, I always, ALWAYS add marshmallows. That's where homemade marshmallows come in, they are easy to make believe … [Read more...]

Allergy Friendly Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

I LOVE hot chocolate. As in, I probably have an unhealthy addiction to hot chocolate. Starbucks sells the most unbelievable Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate on the planet. ON. THE. PLANET. It's beautiful, it's amazing and unfortunately, it contains milk. Milk and I do not get along nor do I get along with soy milk either so that's off the table. This led me to attempt to come up with my own version of this overpriced deliciousness. The first thing I did was make my own caramel sauce. This is … [Read more...]

I experimented with a couple of different methods and today, I'm going to give you the two that won out. Both are slightly different and will produce different results. First, my … [Read more...]
