Kashi Gluten Free Waffles

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day.  Well, it’s a toss-up between that and lunch and dinner.  And second breakfast.  And elevenses… Bacon, biscuits and gravy, waffles… it doesn’t matter what time of day, it makes for an excellent meal.  In a food allergy house, though, it’s not always the easiest meal…

Dark Chocolate Fudge

For when you need chocolate yesterday… I have a friend who doesn’t like chocolate.  We try not to talk about it. I cannot comprehend not liking chocolate.  I get that everyone has preferences, and maybe you prefer something else, and some people can’t eat chocolate… but to just not like it at all?  I just…

Totally Tubular

I once read a blog post (some recipe, I don’t remember what it was) in which the author used the phrase “totally tubular” at least three times.  When I say “I once read,” I don’t mean back in 1989.  I mean just a few months ago, in early 2017.  I just…. I mean…….. *sigh* But…

Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs

The  taste of  summer, bite-sized. Any parent knows that coming up with dinners can be a challenge.  If that parent has a kid with food restrictions (whether due to allergies, EOE, or any other of a host of things), it is that much more difficult.  In the midst of the “I don’t want to do…

I Don’t Have All the Answers…

This kid…….. Last night I made dinner.  I made Reese-safe chicken nuggets, Reese-safe dip, and Reese-safe french fries.  And he would’t touch it.  Well, I take that back; he touched a french fry, and decided it was hot (it wasn’t).  Then decided he was done.

Chocolate Haystacks

Nostalgia, now dairy-free! When I was a kid it seemed like there were things we always had in the pantry.  We always had chocolate chips.  We didn’t make cookies often, but we always had chocolate chips.  We also always had crispy chow mein noodles.  I have absolutely no recollection of ever having Chinese food at home, but…
