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 Snow Ice Cream

The girls love to make snow ice cream every time it snows. It is very simple to make and they love to make their own. They make vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavored. So simple but so good!

Snow Ice Cream

Fill a bowl with clean snow. Stir in vanilla extract, chocolate syrup, or strawberry syrup. Then, stir in enough soy milk to make the ice cream the consistency you like.

Meme's Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Ribs are one of my favorite things to order at a restaurant. However, my mom's are every bit as tender and yummy as the restaurant and Jazlyn can have them. By the time I remembered to take a picture, this is all that was left.

Meme's Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

2 packs of boneless ribs (4 long country ribs each pack or equivalent)
2 safe bottles of barbecue sauce - 40 oz each bottle
                              (Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ sauce sticks really well to the ribs -
                                read the label to make sure it is safe)
Cooking bag

Pour one bottle of the barbecue sauce into the bottom of the cooking bag. Place the ribs over top. Pour the other bottle of the barbecue sauce over top. Seal the bag then place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours. Shake the bag using tongs to make sure the ribs don't stick. Bake for an additional 1 1/2 hours. If desired, cut the ribs into smaller pieces before serving.
*  If you want to make a smaller amount, just use 1 pack of ribs and 1 bottle of sauce.
*  If you don't want to shake the bag halfway through, the ribs will still be fine, they just might stick a little.
