2014 Annual Food Allergy Testing + Results

2014 Annual Food Allergy Testing

Every year it becomes more and more difficult for me to approach our annual food allergy testing appointment.  Why?  Because each year I tell myself that I’m not going to get my hopes up – and yet I do.  What does it mean to “get my hopes up?”  For me, I envision (more like dream about) an allergy skin test where everything is negative.  Beautifully clear backs on my little men and a calendar filled with food challenges.  I work {Read More}

Allergy-Friendly Chex Mix

Allergy-Friendly Chex Mix

This recipe is easy to make and one that you could make any time of the year.  For me, chex mix reminds me of the holidays.  We have a standing family tradition for the day after Thanksgiving.  After we’ve returned home from our crazy, early Black Friday shopping, we mix up a big ‘ole batch of chex mix and begin decorating the house while it bakes in the oven.  Some families associate the smell of cinnamon or even gingerbread with {Read More}

Trick-Or-Treating With Food Allergies

The Teal Pumpkin Project

This time of year, I get lots of emails asking about trick-or-treating. Many of you have asked whether or not we let our little men participate and if we do, how we keep them safe.  Those are great questions and, like many questions related to food allergies, the answers depend a lot on each child’s specific allergies and circumstances and what parents feel comfortable with. Each child’s sensitivity to his/her allergen(s) is different.  Just with my own boys, I’ve noticed a {Read More}

Review & {Giveaway} Nana Creme Frozen Dessert

NanasCremeStacked

  I first learned about Nana Creme when I was doing research for my weekly, “Food Allergies In The News,” post.  I stumbled across an article titled, “Naperville Woman Opens Non-Dairy, Frozen Dessert Business in Lombard,” and after reading about Gina and her new allergy-friendly ice cream, I couldn’t believe what I was reading.  I literally did a happy dance in my kitchen and I knew I had to reach out to her.  Boy am I glad that I did!

Allergy-Friendly Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles

When I crave a cookie, it generally involves one of these flavors: Chocolate Chip, M&M, Grandma Lou’s Famous Sugar Cookies, Ginger Snap, and Snickerdoodles.  Those are my favorites and the ones I grew up making with my mom and grandma. Most of the recipes I’ve been able to rework so they are “safe” for my little men but I struggled to master the Snickerdoodle.  Oh and of course, I have yet to find a “safe” M&M – so I haven’t been able to {Read More}
