What's the one food you could never live without?

What's a treat your kids love that's actually healthy?

What's your best tip for feeding a picky eater?

Meals prepared by me are usually free of the top 8 food allergens (peanuts, treenuts, soy, wheat, eggs, dairy, fish and shellfish). I also keep away from most seeds like poppy, sunflower etc. Apart from the traditional ham, my favorite dishes for Easter are reflective of the crisp fresh spring air: 1. Grilled vegetable (green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers, squash, zucchini) lasagna made with dairy-free cheese (Daiya) and gluten-free lasagna sheets. The lasagna is bursting with the flavors of fresh herbs - basil, cilantro et al! 2. Sauteed asparagus (olive oil, salt and freshly cracked pepper) 3. Sauteed green beans(olive oil, minced garlic, red pepper flakes and salt 4. For the kids: Allergy Friendly cupcakes decorated in spring colors and Easter theme. 5. Allergy Friendly Bread Pudding (made from glutenfree bread and oat/ hemp/ Dari-free/ coconut milk). 6. Chilled spring drink made from fresh carrots and coconut milk.
