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.

Christmas Cookies

I wanted to share with you the Christmas cookies we made for this year. Since we made so many different kinds, I decided to freeze them like my Grandmother used to do. I placed the baked cookies on a baking sheet with parchment paper in between the layers. Once frozen, I placed each kind in a labeled Ziploc bag to store in the freezer. The girls loved them right out of the freezer and we didn't have to worry about them getting stale. We gave some of the cookies to friends and family and they couldn't believe that all of the cookies were safe for Jazlyn because they were so good.
A few days ago we made.....

Sunbutter Oat Cookies (we left out the chocolate chips this time)
