This is our family's answer to macaroni and cheese with food allergy restrictions. This recipe is loved by both my food-allergic husband (who never experienced this comfort food until adulthood) and our son (a toddler who loves cheese!). The recipe makes a creamy dish that you can supplement with vegetables or extra spices.
This recipe is adapted from several others I have come across to suit our tastes and food allergy needs. The spice can be increased by the addition of crushed red pepper flakes, but even without it is very flavorful and a favorite at our house. This recipe freezes well!
I was craving this combination and ended up using and tweaking two separate recipes to create this amazing dessert. I'm posting this after only having made it once. It tasted perfect, but the cooking temp and time may need adjustment (or use a larger pan for shallower brownies), as it took a long time for the center to cook through.
This is an adaptation from an old family recipe. I've substituted for milk and egg, and added a little extra spice. They are friendly for every major food allergy except wheat.
This recipe is forgiving. When I make it for kids, I use whole wheat flour and skimp a bit on the sugar. Add dried fruit if desired.
My dog and husband both have severe food allergies, so finding soft training treats that they can both handle is a big challenge. After creating a liver dog treat, I decided to make a vegetarian version as well. The rosemary gives an aroma that our dog cannot resist!
Between the two of them, my husband and dog are allergic to many of the common ingredients in dog treats. There are also a lot of ingredients in commercial treats that I avoid on principle. I came up with this recipe to satisfy a need for soft and tasty training treats that meet our needs and our dog's tastes. Adjust the seasonings or substitute another fruit or vegetable for your dog's own needs.
I adapted this from Best Pumpkin Cookies #185445 to be suitable for those with dairy, egg, and soy allergies. I changed it enough that it deserves its own entry. I highly advise getting a 1 ounce metal scoop (smaller than a normal ice cream scoop) to make large fluffy cookies. You'll never go back to using a spoon again! Adjust the spices to your taste (I find this combo mild, my husband likes to go easier on the allspice and nutmeg). Frost if desired after cooling.
No baker would make a cake for our wedding once they learned of my husband's food allergies, so I had to do it myself! I made faux bottom layers, and used this recipe for the top layer of the cake. Super moist and delicious with icing! Adapted from The Egg-Free, Milk-Free, Wheat-Free Cookbook. Try Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa for an even more satisfying cake.
Mug cakes are fairly popular, but they often have egg. Here's a tasty version you can make for yourself in a flash! Food-allergy friendly, too!
I highly suggest using Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder in this recipe (I've switched to only using it instead of regular cocoa powder). It's richer, moister, and smoother!
Variations: try coffee or rice milk instead of water, use other flavored chips, or add nuts.
Great texture, very flavorful, and an extra boost of fiber. I've been tweaking this recipe for years!
I use Ener-G egg replacement powder, but other brands (like Orgran) or substitutions (like arrowroot powder) may work just as well. If you want to try using a real egg instead, reduce the amount of pasta sauce accordingly, so that the egg plus sauce equal 3/4 cup liquid.
I've been working on this potato soup for years, and I'm finally happy enough with it to share. Just tonight, I served it to a friend who claimed not to like potatoes. He liked it!
Specific brands for making this egg-, dairy-, and soy-free are included. A good potato soup does not need cream or milk!
This recipe was given to me by a friend when I was starting to cook for my boyfriend (now husband) with food allergies. I used her original written recipe so often I had to post it here so I wouldn't lose it before it became unreadable (Thanks, K!) These don't last long around our house! Try substituting lime for some of the lemon!
