Sunday nights we usually have left overs to help clean out the fridge, but the fridge was already pretty much cleaned out. Craving some french toast (with some bread baking in the oven) I figured that wouldn’t be too hard to do egg free. I used several ideas from other people’s attempts and kept the best of the lot and made a few of my own additions (and subtractions). It was heavenly! I wouldn’t have even noticed it was missing the egg.
With Landon’s tomato allergy, we discovered Pesto Pizza as a twist to our Friday night “ritual” of pizza. However, all store bought pesto has dairy in it. So we make our own. We now also use the pesto to make Pesto Pasta, which is one of Landon’s favorites. It’s also pretty easy to make. We made some today as a quick lunch and it took all of about 10 minutes to make (we already had the pesto made in the fridge though).
This year for Christmas my mother-in-law made us a plate of these delicious gluten free cinnamon rolls. She adapted the recipe to be completely allergy free for us! needless to say, they did not last very long. I had to have the recipe! Here is the adapted recipe, with all of the replacements to make it completely safe for everyone in our house to eat!
One thing that I missed (among others) this Christmas was gingersnaps. I can eat an entire batch/box of them in one sitting (and be completely miserable for the rest of the day) ! I got to thinking today, I bet I could make some that would be good and not make me miserable the rest of the day. Low and behold, I found a recipe!
A favorite meal at our house is chili and corn bread. When Landon started breaking out in hives when we would eat chili, we knew there was something new to add to the “do not eat” list. After several tries (turkey chili on a previous post that wasn’t as great) we finally have “mastered” a tomato-less chili. Bake up some corn bread to go with it and enjoy!
