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.

Rainbow Crayon Cakes

This is a perfect way to use up old and broken crayons. This is a fun craft to make, but they are even more fun to color with.

Rainbow Crayon Cakes

Fill lined cupcake tins 1/3 full with unwrapped, broken crayons. Place in a preheated 300 degree oven. Turn the heat off immediately. Remove the crayons once they are melted (there may be a few that don’t melt completely). Once cooled, remove the crayons from the liners. Color and have fun with your rainbow crayons.
* I recommend using a old muffin tin for this craft.
* If the liners of the crayon cakes stick to the muffin tin, turn the tin upside down and hit the bottom.
