Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cream Pie {dairy + gluten free}

When I was a teenager, my mom and I spent weeks trying to make the *perfect* pumpkin pie recipe. We tried several variations and finally found THE ONE. I still have that recipe and have made it nearly every Thanksgiving since then.

This year, while planning my (dairy & gluten-free) shopping list/menu for two family get-togethers, I actually left the pumpkin pie out of my plans. I still love it, don't get me wrong. But I was in the mood for something different this year.

Food Allergy Bloggers Conference :: 2013 Recap

When I first began writing this blog nearly a year ago, I never imagined the amazingly supportive community of bloggers and advocates that exists. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the inaugural Food Allergy Blogger Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, with so many of them. You may have seen my posts on various social media platforms about how excited I was for this journey, but those posts cannot truly capture the excitement I was feeling.

Halloween :: Staying Safe from Allergies

Traditionally, Halloween is a time of fun, festivities and food. But if you are managing food allergies, school parades and classroom parties, trick-or-treating the neighborhood, and even a trip to the grocery store can cause excruciating anxiety.

(This time of year always brings back so many memories for me...this post is a little flashback and a little bit of the present.)

I have learned over the years that keeping my son safe from his allergens and managing these stressors takes a lot of work. Preparing teachers, other parents, and your child(ren) is crucial.
