    thank you so much for this! I made the duck last night and my girls could not stop eating! They loved it so much. My super allergic daughter drizzled hers with honey and he said it was awesome!

  • It Likely Saved His Life

    You were a huge help. I can't tell you how much I appreciated you insight and resources. It likely saved his life. The main one was corn. That's his deadly allergy. Corn was in the most unsuspecting places and if you hadn't told me about it we would have been so lost. His doctor didn't even know what you do. Thank you again.

  • LOVE your page!

    I have gerd and UC so I don't like following healthy food IG's unless they are AIP! A lot of healthy accounts have a bunch of nuts and seeds and stuff on top of their food and it makes me feel sick even looking at it! That's how sensitive I am haha

Gluten Free, Vegan, No-Bake Rose Cheesecake

Allergy Friendly Rose No-Bake Cheesecake

This is the cheesecake that taught me quite a lesson. The cream cheese to liquid ratio is a delicate balance that you can’t disrupt. However, what if you simply use less liquid? In theory young jedi that should work. However, in practice, you end up with something that as the kids say, “tastes like you’re just eating cream cheese”. So you see, you need liquid, so in this recipe, you’ll see that extra cream cheese had to be used to save the filling from the dreaded droop. Droop will happen in the fridge if there’s too much liquid and the cheesecake is unable to stand on its own. Don’t let this stop you from experimenting though. I personally have enjoyed every lesson learned in the journey of cheesecake making.

If you’ve been reading through all of the cheesecake posts, you may wonder why on earth I made so many. Simple, to give everyone with food allergies and special diets something to choose from. In this case, our Allergy Kid absolutely loves all things rose.

Gluten Free, Vegan, No-Bake Peach Cheesecake

Allergy Friendly Peach No-Bake Cheesecake

This recipe calls for jam, and this is where we may all go in a different direction. Depending on the jam you use, you may or may not need as much oat flour, and may be able to leave it out all together. Our particular jam in this case is imported (Alce Nero), and special as it’s pectin/binder free. Inna Jam is another AMAZING jam choice.

Gluten Free, Vegan, Key Lime No-Bake Cheesecake

Allergy Friendly Key Lime No-Bake Cheesecake

I was so pleased when The Papa said this was his favorite cheesecake. Now, full disclosure, he is partial to all things key lime. This was no different. Yet, here’s what this illustrates best:

  • People who don’t have a dairy allergy can still enjoy these
  • Making flavors that are preferred to your audience is key

I’ve seen a rise in the use of collagen online for various health benefits, and depending on your personal health needs, you may find it to be a great addition to your supplement line up. Read More

Glute Free, Vegan, Crispy Oat Apple Pie

Allergy Friendly Crispy Oat Apple Pie

I’ve been wanting to use the pressure cooker and/or slow cooker for some time now to make a dessert. This was our first attempt, and it came out VERY well. Using a pressure cooker or slow cooker can enhance the overall flavor, and in some cases, save you time. In the case of the pressure cooker, it takes about 20 minutes and presto, dessert is cooked. If you were to cook those apples in the oven, it would take about an hour. On the slow cooker side of things, while it takes much longer, you have the option to add everything before you leave for work, and set a delayed start time. Either way, I see these tools as a real win.

Just a friendly reminder when working with oats- if you are wheat allergic, or have celiac disease, it’s important to use certified gluten free oats. We get ours from GlutenFreeOats.com, and I have to say, I’m quite impressed with their growing standards, and the measures they take to keep people safe. They also happen to be the only corn free oat product I’m aware of. We use their oats for overnight oats, homemade oat milk for the bakery, and of course oat flour for baking. I’ve also recently gotten into making tortillas using the oat flour as well.

For Corn Free: Source safe apples. They shouldn’t have wax on them. Use a safe butter/fat/oil. Make sure each source material is safe for you. Read More
