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 Chicken and Dumplings

This is a great hearty meal that my girls couldn't get enough of. They especially loved the fluffy dumplings. Leftovers reheat perfectly.

Quick and Simple Chicken and Dumplings

6 tbsp dairy free margarine
½ cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups cooked diced or shredded chicken
2 cans mixed vegetables
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1 cup soy milk

Melt the margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper. Add the broth then whisk until thoroughly combined and thickened. Stir in the chicken and vegetables then bring to a boil over low heat. Meanwhile, combine the Bisquick and soy milk in a separate bowl until a soft dough is formed. Drop the dumpling mixture by spoonfuls on top of the boiling chicken mixture. Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Cover and cook an additional 20 minutes or until the dumplings are cooked through.
