Allergy Free Jazzed up Hotdogs by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free Jazzed up Chicken Hotdogs (Beef Version Too)

Did you know that Kid Two is allergic to beef? It’s why most of our recipes that have meat are turkey and chicken based. However, when we purchased our stove, pots, and pans, it made starting fresh and dividing the kitchen awesome. Everyone else likes beef, for the most part. Now, we’re able to safely make them a beef version of something (even though I don’t do this very often yet). It also means we can save a little money by not having them eat the allergy-friendly meats, especially hotdogs, which can sometimes be more expensive. This was one of those times.

I like showing the kids the different things they can do with hotdogs, since it’s “easy” for them (no meat to trim and prep, etc.). Kids in general like hotdogs, but personally, I feel like the meal is too easy… like somehow I’ve cheated everyone because I boiled hotdogs and served them. Yet, if the kids boil the exact same hotdogs, I sing their praises for taking initiative. LOL. I really crack myself up. This time I opted to make something that I felt would be fancy and healthy. I had several items from Costco that I wanted to put to good use, and I’m glad I did.

Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Paleo Compatible, Refined/Cane Sugar Free Compatible, Diabetic Compatible, GAPs Compatible, SCD Compatible, Low Histamine Compatible
For Sugar Free, Paleo, Diabetic, AIP, GAPs, SCD, and Low Histamine: Follow the beef recipe, or use fresh chicken rather than the hotdogs. Read More

Free and Friendly Foods Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes Recipe, A Three Course Meal

For those of you that come to visit often, you know how much of a foodie I am, or at least, want to be. Do you ever notice in life that people with a disability of any sort usually go on to conquer something that challenges that disability? Like one-armed tennis players… That sort of thing. Seems like it’s only natural that a person with severe food allergies with come up with all of this stuff. Anywho. The potatoes. Have you seen them online? They’re GOR-GEEEE-ous! I’ve been wanting to do this, and the right need came up.

As our social media presence grows, I’m meeting all sorts of people with all sorts of allergies. @chronically_kota and I were chatting about her needs, and the sorts of things she missed, so I created a very special 3 course meal. I really hope that this not only makes her day, but yours too.

Before we move on however, I have a confession to make. There aren’t many pictures. We tried to make this one of our first video posts… the video… may it rest in peace. And, you’ll love this. I plated the most perfect of the four, and accidentally let the kids eat it before I took a picture. It had fanned out just right… it’s OK to cry for me.

Free and Friendly Foods Patty Melts

Patty Melts Recipe

I loved patty melts as a child, and as I recreated these for the kids (beef and wheat free of course), I actually missed them. There’s not much that I miss, and most times I don’t realize that I miss something, but these, I tried to eat about 10 of them in my head. In my head, I feasted. Then I nibbled on some corn free peas…

Free and Friendly Foods Breakfast Ramen

Breakfast Ramen Recipe

When the kids were younger, they loved ramen. I’d buy the products that came with the little season pack and make it. We’d add all sorts of things to the ramen as well. It’s been so long since we did that, mainly because we learned of Kid Two’s wheat allergy. It never dawned on me that ramen could be gluten free, until I was in the store and saw it. It just clicked in my brain, and suddenly ideas of all sorts of ramen came into my brain. Often times I’d seen people posting photos of pho and ramen bowls, and simply move on. I feel like my time has finally come, and yours too, since you get to eat something epic.

Free and Friendly Foods Carrots & Cauliflower Cookup

Organic Carrots & Cauliflower Cookup Recipe

In need of a quick healthy lunch? This should meet your needs. Kid Two and one of the cousins were need of a nice lunch, and I needed to take a picture of something… anything. So I made them this. The Cousin is trying to go Paleo right now, so I’ve been showing them how to come up with different, quick, easy meals to make while away at college. This one went over well, and came together quickly, exactly what’s needed when away from home.

Free and Friendly Foods Sunflower Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sunflower Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is another installment of the Nut Butter Cookies Series. I was so inspired at the grocery store to see all of the little packs of nut and seed butters. It has allowed me to create small batches of cookies to test ideas without having to take the plunge and purchase jars and jars of butters (which we all know can add up to a small fortune).

I don’t know what else to call these but little bites of joy. There are corn free notes below so that you too can enjoy these. Take this advice however: make small batches. If you don’t, you’ll gain 10 pounds. Yes, they’re that tasty.

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, Vegan, GAPs Compatible, Corn Free Compatible, Low Histamine Compatible

For Low Histamine: Omit chocolate chips.
For GAPs: Use choice or combination of coconut and almond flour. Omit chocolate chips.
For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients, and use safe chocolate chips. I personally use Once Again since they don’t use corn derivatives. Other major brands have CF products that share lines with corn derivatives. Pascha chocolate is corn free.

Free and Friendly Foods Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potato Trio Recipes

What to cook, oh what to cook? We have a rule that if I can’t take a picture of it (as in, it’s something new that we need a photo of), I’m not cooking. It’s my polite way of going on strike. That mask is not nearly as comfortable as it appears.

I know I can’t be the only one that has those days where you simply have no idea what to prepare for hungry children. On days like these, smoothies are a great choice, but perhaps I wasn’t in the mood for making one. Instead I decided to look through what was in stock, and there was a plethora of sweet potatoes (thanks Costco). I decided to pull out several and start peeling, hoping something would come to me, and come it did. Once the idea was developed, I was rather excited to make breakfast.

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you the joy of Rosemary Sweet Potato Bites, and the somewhat joy of what was supposed to be Sweet Potato Hash Browns. They didn’t behave the way russet potatoes do, so I had to think on my feet. I’ll start with the recipes first, then move on to the pictures. The allergy status is included with each recipe.

Free and Friendly Foods Mushroom Pizzas

Mushroom Pizza Recipe

Like Watermelon Cake, this one had me giggling on the inside all over again. The kids LOVE to make homemade pizza, and when I told them we were having mushroom pizza for dinner, they were excited. The last time I used mushrooms on pizza, I took the fancy road and purchased exotic-to-us mushrooms and made the kids Lobster Mushroom Pizza. There were several other fancy mushrooms on the pizza too.

Back to this meal. So Kid Three was more than happy to help, but he was confused because there was no pizza dough to be found. As I started to prepare the mushrooms, Kid Two says “OH! Mushroom Pizza!” Yes… Mushroom Pizza. I hope you have just as much fun with your family serving these as I did. FYI, we made dairy, and non-dairy versions, which you’ll see in the pictures.

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, Vegan, Low Histamine Compatible, SCD Compatible
