Lennox and Reese’s SunButter Cups

My son Reese can’t have peanut butter (or dairy, or eggs, or soy, or nuts, or……). But he can have these! Without question, my favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. In fact, any peanut butter based candy is going to top my list. Unfortunately, two of my kids are allergic to peanuts, so I…

Bread-in-a-bag

Bread.  Seriously.  I love bread.  It would seem pretty simple, right?  Then you find out your kid has food restrictions.  We have pretty much become experts on reading labels, and it’s amazing what you find on the labels of bread packages.  Soon after lamenting this out loud to everyone that would listen (and a few…

Glazed Donuts

It’s Saturday morning, the time when the thoughts of young children turn to breakfast.  We have an amazing donut shop called Jack’s right down the street. Few things are better than going in and getting a box of fresh donuts.  And the fact that it is only a few doors down from the local comic…

Fruit and other things

When it comes to breakfast, I’m a “savory person.”  I’m not real big on pancakes (crazy,  I know).  They’re good and all, about 95% of the time, I’ll choose biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, and bacon.  Our little EOE dude though can’t have most biscuits (dairy and sometimes egg), can’t have sausage gravy (dairy), and…

Coconut Oil Chocolate Drops

Easy, delicious, and Top 8 free?  Yes please! Do you ever find yourself sitting in front of the TV after finally getting the kids to bed and saying to yourself, “I need something…..”?  I do.  Frequently.  That’s when I start getting creative.  I make up popcorn toppings, I pour honey and cinnamon on ice cream… basically I…

Mayo, please!

Do you guys know about this?  So, maybe I’m late to this party, but this stuff is great!  Dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, made with pea protein rather than soy protein… and good. Is it just like regular mayonnaise? ……..no. BUT, it is a great alternative (arguably better than lite mayo, which still has the egg and stuff…

Chocolate Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

(contains wheat) Sometimes you just want cookies.  Like, really want cookies.  I was at the store the other day to buy some spaghetti sauce.  Spaghetti is one of the few things our little dude will/can eat, so it’s something we have frequently.  I don’t know what it is about spaghetti (specifically spaghetti Bolognese – or…
