We cook and bake live, and answer any questions you may have. We talk about recipes, substitutions, and all things food allergies. There’s also lots of humor mixed in. Be sure to check our Instagram account for the latest details each Monday. This delicious dish was made a few weeks ago, and our good friends have had nothing but rave reviews for it.

Vegan Mango Spice Cake – Guest Blog Post
Today we have a special treat for you, a guest blog post by Shikha from Veggiecurean. Her site is simply gorgeous, and full of allergy friendly, all vegan, recipes. You can also follow her on Instagram, @veggiecurean. Enjoy!
Who doesn’t like tropical fruit? My kids absolutely love mangoes, so much so that we often have mangoes in all three major meals of the day — in our smoothies for breakfast, in our salads for lunch, and in our Thai curry for dinner. It seems like I can never buy enough mangoes at the store!
It became obvious to me that my kids wanted to add mangoes to their dessert, too, specifically in the form of cake, their favorite kind of dessert. So, being the amazing mother and spice queen that I am, I decided to make a Vegan Mango Cake and add a spicy ginger kick to it.

Allergy Free, Vegan, Chocolate Chia Pudding
Have you ever seen Chia Pods in your local grocery store? I saw them a very long time ago, and Kid Two really enjoyed them, but only certain flavors. No one else seemed to like them, and I wasn’t in love with the price. After thinking about the ingredients, I set out to make them myself. That was over a year ago. The boys have been in love with every flavor I’ve created, including vanilla and mango. They also know how to make these on their own now. Chocolate however remains king of the flavors, as it is requested the most. This rendition includes banana, and everyone was happy to have it. What I like the most about this is that it’s coconut free. All too often, healthy chia puddings call for either almond or coconut milk. Well not these. However, if you’re grain free, you could sub in a milk that you enjoy. These work great as a breakfast, snack, or dessert. Once you’ve made them once, you’ll see how the ratios work, then I suggest you go wild and start making all sorts of flavors.
Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Diabetic, Vegan, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Paleo Compatible
For Paleo: Use an allowed milk of choice. Water is not recommended.
For Corn Free: Use a safe milk. If needed, make fresh oat milk using safe oats. Read More
Allergy Free Comforting Chicken & Rice
This dish came together as one of those, “use what’s in the fridge” types of meals. I only used a small amount of asparagus since around here, it’s considered a bad word. I’m working on that by the way, lol. Here’s the best part though: after I had everything ready, I asked everyone to sample, and they were just so pleased. The Papa said that it’s not a dish that knocks you off your feet with flavor, but at the same time, it’s just so comforting to eat. In fact, he told me several times that evening that “Dinner was just so comforting. We should have that again soon.” Coming from him, and knowing that asparagus was involved, it was quite the compliment. So, from our kitchen to yours, here’s a comforting dish for the family to enjoy.

Grain Free, Allergy Friendly, Sweet & Sour Pork
I have been having SO much fun experimenting with the Cascadian Farms frozen cauliflower rice product. I think it’s been out for a while, but only newly available in our area. Whole Foods also has a similar product, however, it’s made in a shared facility, and isn’t safe for Kid Two. This new product though, it’s very interesting! When we make cauliflower rice at home, there’s a much more organic texture about it. The frozen package seems to have somewhat uniform square pieces of cauliflower.
I was working on a different project when this idea came to me – an allergy friendly sweet and sour pork. First, I thought I would about it in the tradition way, then I reminded myself of how much I love to go about things totally different. I have yet to see a clean, grain free, version of sweet and sour pork, and set out to make that a reality. When I made it, I was afraid I had gone a bit too far and no one would like it… They ate it all in one go. I think it’s safe to say this is a delicious recipe 🙂
Allergy Status: Gluten/Wheat Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Corn Free, Paleo, GAPs Compatible, Diabetic, SCD Compatible
For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients, especially the bell pepper, and pineapple.
For SCD: Use organic date sugar instead of organic maple sugar, and use an appropriate flour such as coconut.
For GAPs: Use the proper flour and omit the cassava and tiger nut. Read More
Allergy Free Taco Tuesday Gorditas
Do you remember gorditas from Taco Bell? I learned about these as a kid, and thought it was pretty neat to have two taco shells in on go. For many reasons, we don’t feed the kids fast food, however, I love recreating things at home for them that I think they’d just love. This was a HUGE hit! If it weren’t for my severe corn allergy, I’m sure we’d make these more often. It was comforting to see how much the kids were willing to work to keep me safe while we prepared this meal. The Papa set up a table outside for us to work on, and of course, I didn’t touch anything. So, ready to make these? Our Allergy Kid had never had anything like it, and was blown away, as was everyone else.

Allergy Free, Vegan, Brussels Sprouts Lunch & Giveaway
As you may know, we teamed up with Bentology to bring you a delicious stuffed pork recipe. Well, there’s this one as well, as we didn’t want our vegan readers to be left out. As I mentioned before, I really like that this is a bento-style product. In addition to making this recipe for our vegan eaters, I thought it would be great since they work hard to encourage people to eat healthy. For those of you that are brussels sprouts avoiders, I can personally guarantee that The Papa was happy with this meal. Focus on the word happy. He hates brussels sprouts.
To make this partnership even better, Bentology has given us one of their lunch boxes and tote to give away. To take part in the giveaway, head over to our Instagam account, @TheAllergyChef, and follow the instructions. Good luck!

Allergy Free Bison Cinnamon Meatballs
Before we get started, Constructive Eating sent us their product, free of charge, to be used and reviewed. Alright, let’s get talking. This product… it’s EPIC. You know how honest I am. I’d never say that unless I meant it. The Papa, The Kids, and I all have our eyes on the eating utensils, lol. I can say that for the most part, we’ve been quite blessed with having kids that weren’t too picky when it comes to eating. However, our oldest, up until about age 10 could be a problem. I suppose the others were a bit picky in their early years too. I am over the moon in love with the concept behind this product. It’s simply way too cool if you have a picky eater. Now, I know some of you come from the background of “not playing with your food” however, have you seen the plates? As a graphic designer, I would have loved to have this when the kids were younger so I could make my own inserts. It would have been never ending fun for me, and them.
The inserts that we have seen are the ABCs, and different kid themes such as space, the beach, the farm, etc. There was also a place-mat included, but honestly, the other items totally overshadowed the place-mat. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice addition to the set, especially if you want your child to have the full experience. As an adult with older kids reviewing it, I could take it or leave it. The utensils on the other hand, I REALLY want to take them for myself. They’re just too cool.

Today, I present you with M is for Meatball. This was a recipe that turned out really well. It was my first time working with ground bison, and the kids, and the extended family, all really enjoyed this creation.

Allergy Free Earth Day Brownies
Have you been able to watch our Instagram Live Streams on Mondays? If not, see if you can start tuning in. Each week we go over different recipes, field questions, give tips, and even take requests. These brownies were a request from a user needing a little help in the baking department. Here on the blog, there’s the Free Brownie Recipe. Over at the Bakery Website, there’s the Free Kit Card Download of a different brownie recipe (and a topping too). This was something totally new because this person didn’t want a brownie that too oily. To achieve that, I started with the Kit Card version, then modified 🙂
On the Live Stream, we also showed people a really cool topping idea for people who may want to make Brownie Bars, as well as Candy Stuffed Brownies. So, here’s several recipes, links and product information (none of the links are affiliate links) and yummy pictures too. Happy Earth Day!
