I am a mother of two Allergic kids, one of whom is severely allergic to Dairy, Eggs, Peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish, moderate to Soy and coconut. I have had to learn how to cook a lot from scratch in order to have food in my home that is safe for my family to come in contact with and to eat. I personally don't want anyone to feel left out ever and I especially don't want my children to not be able to enjoy at least some of the same foods just because they are allergic to basic ingredients. So with some good motivation I have taught myself how to cook and bake and I have come up with some great recipes to share with the world. I want to make it easier on other people in similar positions. Hopefully I can help other people to be able to also enjoy foods that previously would have been thought to have been off limits.
