Free and Friendly Foods Corn Free Apple Pancakes by The Allergy Chef

Corn Free Spiced Apple Pancakes

It has been quite a busy season around here, but we must keep moving forward 🙂 We’ve been working on several collaborations right now, and this is one of them. We’ve teamed up with Hannah from Positively Pure Food. She has an AMAzing Instagram Profile, here’s the link. Like me, Hannah creates awesome allergy friendly recipes, so be sure to follow her for yummy ideas.

Together, we decided to come up with holiday CORN FREE pancakes. That’s right folks. Hold on to your seats. While most of you don’t have a corn allergy, those of you that do understand how difficult it can be to source safe ingredients and then get said ingredients to work together to form something just right. Both Hannah and I put in a lot of time and energy to deliver what we feel are delicious, enjoyable, and safe recipes. For all of my corn free friends out there, enjoy yourself. Indulge yourself.

Enjoy Life Pancake Donuts by The Allergy Chef at Free and Friendly Foods

Fun & Festive Quick Donuts

We teamed up with List at You can also see her on Instagram, she’s @mummymadeit. Before I jump into things, I have to say, it’s been quite fun connecting with her online. In fact, the internet is quite amazing like that. For years, it seems like we’ve been on our own little island, and now that we’re try to help people, we’re connecting with SO many people who are on the same mission. Here’s what really gets me about Lisa: the health factor. The things she makes without cane sugar will blow you away. So, we thought it would be fun to each share a donut, and cookie with you, with a holiday theme. This week, she has created gorgeous Gingerbread Donuts. I personally can’t wait to give the recipe a go!

On our side of the globe, we decided to do something totally unconventional. We’ve created quick pancake donuts. A while back, I was reading how people are using boxed mixes to make all sorts of things, including donuts. Well, there aren’t many allergy free mixes available on the market. However, Enjoy Life has recently release a whole line. When they first came out, I decided to pass since we have so many pancake recipes around here. I thought, why am I buying a box of something? Although, thinking back, I should have so the kids and The Papa could make them faster for themselves, lol.

However, when these went on sale, I grabbed a few to try. A while back we shared the muffin mix results with you. The kids loved them. So I thought, what if…

The best part about these is that they sat out for 2.5 days, and everyone snacked on them as they walk ed by. No one ever reported that they had gone stale or dry, which is a huge plus. Kid Two said they really do still taste like pancakes. Kid three says they taste like donuts. I’ll let you be the judge.

Free and Friendly Foods Pulled Pork by The Allergy Chef

Organic Pulled Prok

Online, we’ve been able to connect with a lot of new people. One of them, @theunskilledcavewoman on Instagram, loves using her combo slow cooker. We posted about pear dish a while back, and she used that as an idea to create something totally rad in her pot. I had been thinking about a slow cooker for a while until that point, and that’s what pushed me over the edge. We ended up getting a combo slow cooker and pressure cooker. I’ve always wanted both, and Kid Two and I saw a really cool demo last year and knew we needed it. Fast forward, and we get one. The Papa immediately says, “We have to have pulled pork!” So that’s what I set about making. Pulled pork in the pressure cooker, then slow cooked with sauce. Although this is a labor intensive and time intensive project, according to everyone that ate it, you won’t regret it at all. If I could go back and do anything differently, I would have made more so there would be more leftovers. They ate most of it the night I made it. Not sure if I should be happy or sad about that.
