    what brand would you suggest for corn tortillas? We keep trying them but they're not too tasty.

    Thank you for the links!
    That's really helpful.
    Thank you too for being generous about my last question on ibs. I was really worried about it being an odd question to ask, but the topic of tummy troubles has a tendency to come up from time to time at familial get togethers, so I thought, "why not?"
    Warm Wishes,

    Hi Cybele,

    Have you ever seen a recipe for vanilla ice cream to put in an ice cream churn? I've heard about trying soy creamer. Have you ever tried this?


    P.S. Your husband's PSU show was nice. Quite the potty mouth ;). Chelsea giggled a lot and I had some 'splainin to do...

    I posted a comment on the Food Network site, letting them know how beneficial a special on food allergies would be to viewers. I mentioned your name, I really hope that's okay. I should have checked in with you first, but I got caught up in what I was writing and forgot.

    I also checked out the 8 snack recipes and decided to try making Monte's Mango Madness, without the mango. Thanks for posting those up!

    Hi Anon:

    I use La Adelita, but I'm not sure if they are available all across the country. I live in LA, where they are manufactured. Have you tried the various brands at Whole Foods? I use them too.


    Oh dear, when I got that email from you asking whether the concert was age appropriate for your daughter, it was already too late to warn you. Those shows are really for a college age audience. However, the new show he'll be touring with this coming year, "Broadway State of Mind" should be a lot cleaner. I'm sorry about the splainin'.


    THanks for posting at Food Network!! OF course I don't mind that you mentioned my name!

    Hi Cybele! I also followed your link to the Food Network and mentioned your name for an Allergen Free food show! Hope it gets us all somewhere... even if it just raises awareness!

    Hi Cybele,


    It wasn't so bad, really. It opened the door for Chelsea to tell me things about what 7th graders talk about in school that just about made my head spin around.

    So...about that ice cream... :)

    Hi! I posted at Food Network, too. Great idea. I loved Martha Stewart's show with the allergen-free baker, it would be wonderful to have something like that with you. If it happens I hope you'll post and let us all know.

    Hey, while searching for widgets for my blog, I stumbled upon and wow! I found what I wanted. A cool news widget. My blog is now showing latest news with title, description and images. Took just few minutes to add. Awesome!

    For the new book, how about WINE ALLERGIES? Not too many write on that and there are many people who suffer from wine allergies even from a small glass. I know you aren't a sommelier, but maybe it would be nice to feature suggestions to compliment your recipes. Think of the sponsorships :)

    Your future tv show isn't going to be Allergy Idol format is it? Say it ain't so, say it ain't so. What would be your ideal format?

    Hi Cybele, what about an update? Any progress with the cooking show? How are you and your boys? I hope you are enjoying the summer weather. It is so nice to be able to enjoy sunny days all the time.

    Hi Cybele, Thank you for writing your very helpful and amazing cookbook. For your next one- I would love an allergy free version of whipped cream.

    Done. Sent my message to the food network strongly encouraging them to have you on there! Good luck!

    Thanks so much for writing in to the food network.

    I'm just curious.... has anyone gotten a response? Or are we emailing into a vacuum?

    I just visited the Food Network website and left a comment about the addition of a food allergy cooking show to their programming. I would love to see FN air something for families who can't follow most traditional cookbooks without so much improvising that the recipe is kind of lost. And, it would be great for the general public to see how allergic families have to be innovative and creative to make meals fun, tasty and as close to "normal" as possible.

    Good luck to you!
