I am a wife and mother of two learning everyday how to take care of my multiple-allergy family and help others in doing the same.
I aim to educate others on a gluten free/dairy free and vegetarian lifestyle, and show that nutrition is...

What's your go-to product or brand that gets around your child's food allergy?

Our home has been gluten and dairy free for the past 5 years when, while pregnant, I discovered the culprit to my health problems at the time, and after our children were each diagnosed early in life.
There are quite a few things in our home that we are purposeful NOT to run out of:
Bob's Red Mill Sorghum Flour and Brown Rice Flour-these are my staple baking flours! I make everything from pancakes, to donuts, to biscuits to pizza crust!!
Tofutti "Sour Cream" and "Cream Cheese"-can be used anywhere their dairy counterparts would be used, and in some unsuspecting recipes as well!!
Daiya Cheese Shreds-they melt SO well and make the taste and texture more similar to what I remember from cheesy foods, but even creamier!!
Tinkinyada Spinach Pasta and Lasagne Noodles-this brand by far cooks the best out of almost all we have tried and I can make many dishes out of these!!
Trader Joes Brown Rice Pasta (Spaghetti and Penne noodles)-Every home should have a shelf dedicated to this in their pantry!!
Orgran All Purpose Rice Crumbs-I think I prefer these over "traditional" bread crumbs, better texture!
Enjoy Life's Mini Chocolate Chips-who doesn't like good, pure chocolate chips? and mini too?!
Pamela's Chocolate Cake Mix and Corn Muffin Mix-for those times when cupcakes/muffins are absolutely necessary and mommy would rather spend time playing with the kids than with the kitchen utensils.

What's one thing you'd like all moms to know about food allergies (either about your family's specific allergies or in general)?

What's one of your favorite recipes that's safe for your family's food allergies?

What advice would you give to a mom who just found out her child has a food allergy?

What's a great allergy-safe food to bring to a party?

What's your go-to cooking shortcut?

I triple my pancake recipe and freeze the leftovers in between squares of freezer paper and wrap. We can pop in the toaster when needed. This gives us quick breakfast, lunch or dinner (because breakfast is ALWAYS appropriate!) We have even used pancakes to whip up a quick pb&j when gf bread isn't readily available!!
