My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Strawberry Tapioca Pudding

I love strawberries and this is one of my favorite puddings.

Strawberry Tapioca Pudding

1 cup frozen strawberries, mostly thawed
1 1/2 cups water
Sugar, amount depends on the sweetness of the berries and your personal taste (I use 2-3 tbsp)
1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca

Place the strawberries, water and sugar in a blender then process until completely smooth. Pour the strawberry mixture into a saucepan. Thoroughly stir in the tapioca then allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes to allow the tapioca to soften. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove the pan from the heat when the pudding has thickened.
*  Serve warm or chilled.
*  I always triple this recipe. It takes 15 minutes for the pudding to thicken when I make this amount.
