1st Grade Jitters

School will be starting here in a little over two weeks. In preparation of that I met with Caleb’s first grade teacher this morning just to introduce ourselves and talk about his food allergies, and to get to know her.  It is always a bit nerve-racking getting ready for school, getting all the paperwork updated […]

Learning to Bake Allergen-Free ~ book review

      I recently was sent a copy of “Learning to Bake Allergen-Free: a crash course for busy parents on baking without wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, or nuts” from the author, Colette Martin.  I LOVE this cookbook! It really is a tutorial~ teaching you not only about the alternatives you can use in […]

Kindergarten

I took Caleb to school for Kindergarten screening today. I confess that I left the meeting not feeling very confident or assured about the ‘allergy-plan’ that is in place there. One of my issues is that the school is peanut free, but not tree nut free; and since Caleb is allergic to tree nuts, dairy […]

Allergy-Free ‘Better than it Looks’ Banana Bread

My best friend,  who happens to be an amazing cook in my opinion, came over for a visit and I had her try a slice of this recipe I tried to create- wanting something like my mom’s banana bread, with the nutty flavor- She looked at it, and then at me, and skeptically, then took […]

Canola Allergy

Jacob was just diagnosed as having in addition to others, an allergy to Canola and Rapeseed.  I almost think this is as,  if not more, frustrating than the allergies to soy and wheat! Canola is used in just about EVERYTHING!!~ Canola is in almost all potato products, cooking sprays, margarines, baked goods, and a lot of things we have […]

Oat, Rye, Barley,~Grain Allergies

Most allergy sufferers wont end up with allergies to all these grains as well as wheat, but Jacob did. Unfortunately for me it seems that when I get him adjusted to a new diet and find foods he will eat, months later he has a new allergy to them! I Hope that this trend is […]

Authentic Foods Flour

Authentic Foods  Rice Flour is raved about as the best out there for the simple reason- it makes your baked goods not taste gritty- like so many gluten free things do- If like me, you perhaps have looked at getting it- then had shell shock when you saw the shipping rates- no matter where you […]

Corn Allergy

Corn Allergy is, in my opinion,  the most frustrating allergy to have. You must avoid not only corn on the cob, corn chowder etc, but any product that uses corn derivatives, such as corn syrup, corn starch, corn meal. Corn is even used in medicines, vitamins, toiletries, and packaging.  Unfortunately it also is NOT an […]

Egg Allergy

Egg allergies are scary to me. My chiropractors grandson has an egg allergy, and went into anaphylactic shock, lips turning black, and stopped breathing after eating scrambled eggs at about 2 years old.  So when Jacob was having his 1st allergy scratch test done, they also tested him for eggs. The largest welt on his […]
