Welcome to The Allergy Safe Kitchen!

We all want our children to not only survive, but thriveSomewhere throughout the ages, since the onset of processed convenience foods, our culture has stepped away from the kitchen.  The speed of life has gotten in the way of passing on culinary instruction to younger generations.  I’m not talking about learning to become a gourmet chef, but rather the hands on, basic cooking instruction that children used to receive in their grandma’s kitchen, or at their mother’s skirt (or yoga pants). 

For a food allergic child, learning to cook is not only about survival, but also about thriving in a world where ingredients can be the enemies.  I believe that every food allergic child who learns to cook real food, with good, safe ingredients, is an empowered and knowledgeable child, who will carry that confidence, wisdom, and food safety awareness into adulthood.  The recipes here are not only allergy friendly, but designed with steps that even small children can be taught to do.

My goal, in The Allergy Safe Kitchen, is to get not only you, but also your children cooking with confidence
  • Steps that are child-friendly are marked with an asterisk! ( * )
  • “Kitchen Tip Tuesday” posts are bite-sized nuggets of cooking instruction to help you and your children make the most of learning to navigate the kitchen.   

I hope you’ll get cooking with me! 

The Allergy Safe Kitchen is a way of life for my family. Our meals are egg-free, dairy-free, peanut/tree nut free, as is our house. We have been living the food allergy life for almost 10 years now.  It's been a long road of negotiating substitutions, finding meals that our family of nine can mostly agree on, and learning how to fill our freezer with homemade convenience foods. 

Here are some things I want you to know about my blog:

  • Even if I don't make a note of it in the actual recipe, I always encourage purchasing as many organic ingredients as you can reasonably afford.  If it's one ingredient, that's a great start. If it's more, than that's great too.  
  • Whatever you can do to start eliminating GMOs, artificial coloring, and pesticides from your foods, do it. 
  • The product reviews are simply my opinions.  If you have had a different experience with a product, please feel free to respectfully share your opinion in the comments section. 
  • I will always let you know where the reviewed product came from - whether I bought it, or received it for free. 
  • Please comment and ask questions!  We are a community, and the more people who comment and share, the more we can support and lift up each other. (Any comments with profanity will be removed.  I also reserve the right to remove any comment from the blog.)
