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.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Jell-O Poke Cake

For a special Valentine's Day treat, we made a vanilla cake using our recipe for Amazing Vanilla Cupcakes. Then we turned it into a Jell-O Poke Cake using our recipe for Jell-O Poke Cupcakes using black cherry Jell-O. To decorate the cake, we added a few drops of red food coloring to the Rich's Whip whipped topping as we were beating it to make the perfect pink. Once the cake was frosted, we gently pressed heart cookie cutters into the whipped topping then filled them with sprinkles. Once filled, we removed the cutters to reveal the beautiful hearts.

I hope everyone had a very happy and delicious Valentine's Day.
