    I'm so excited about the halloween articles! I'm helping out with kindergarten festivities this year and there is a surprisingly high number of children with food allergies in the class--so i was hoping to get some good ideas from you. Thank yooou!

    Those Halloween treats looked good...

    I like the halloween piniata(sp?) idea! thanks

    Thank you sooo much for both articles... not just for the recipes, but the ideas! Your kids are so blessed to have you for a mom. (Mine is still trying to feed me things I can't have. Denial is easy when it's not your own food allergy.)

    Quickly, I'm also glad to see Emily McNair's post at least one teacher out there is being mindful... I hope others follow suit.

    If it's all about supply and demand, and Americans start saying no to feeding our kids ... cr-p in a wrapper... our kids would grow up healthier and the foods you recommend would be more mainstream. O for that day!

    This is sort of random, but for your husband's birthday, what kind of cake did you make? Did you make an allergy free one so your boys could have some or did you make a specific cake just for him? And if you did, how do you make cakes for your boys?

    The reason I ask is because I want to make a cake for a food allergic friend. Do you have any tips? Thanks!

    I made a healthy dip tonight that my picky eaters loved and I thought I'd share it.

    I chopped and sauteed half an onion and added ground chuck. I drained off the fat. I added taco seasoning and a little water. My smaller daughter hates ground beef unless it's pretty smoothe so I put it in the food processor for a few pulses. To the food processor, I added a fresh tomato, an almost-cooked steamed carrot, a can of fat-free refried beans, some dairy-free cheddar shreds and a tablespoon of salsa and pulsed it until it was almost smoothe. I cooked it (with a spatter screen on)and stirred occasionally until it was pretty thick. I served it in a hamburger-sized condiment cup with big wedges of baked corn tortilla and apples on the side. They loved having a snack as dinner.

    Elleine08, do you have Cybele's cookbook? There are several cake recipes in it.

    Have you heard of Cherrybrok Kitchen? It's a company that makes allergen free baking mixes. They were recently at my local Costco which was cool. They're treats were delicious, if that helps :]

    I forgot to mention that Cherrybrook Kitchens' chocolate chips do contain soy.

    Jane, unfortunately I have been unable to pick up Cybele's cookbook, which I keep kicking myself for not having done so, yet. But thanks for that. More incentive to go pick it up! :)

    I'll have to look at Cherrybrook Kitchen. Thanks for that!

    Uh Oh, I've been an absentee blogger. Please forgive me! Thanks for the recipe Nancy. Dinner disguised as snacks are a great idea!

    I like Cherrybrook Kitchen for a quick easybake solution, but be careful, some of the products also contain wheat.

    For my husband's birthday, he had my allergen free chocolate sunflower butter cups. We went out to dinner at a place that serves "small plates", so we ordered like six different dishes, and were stuffed! I had an allergen free cupcake in the fridge left over from Lennon's birthday party a couple days earlier, but he chose the candy instead.

    My book is available for cheap on Amazon. You can buy one of the used copies, and it's even cheaper. Or you could probably find it at your local library. If they don't have it, they should order it. It's a good resource. Many libraries now carry it.
