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.

Ham and Candied Carrots

This meal has been in my family for generations. We make this meal quite often because it is easy to prepare and turns out very tender with lots of flavor.

Ham and Candied Carrots

1 box dark brown sugar
1 1/2 liters of ginger ale
1 ham
1-3 cans tiny carrots

Combine the brown sugar and ginger ale. Pour some of the mixture into a roasting pan. Place the ham on top then pour the remaining mixture over top. Add the carrots around the ham. Cover and bake at 350 for 3 hours, spooning some of the liquid over the ham occasionally to prevent it from drying out.
