Just a mom who loves to bake
Many of you are probably wondering if I am a Vegan, the short answer... no! My journey started when I became a first time mom to my eldest son. When he was one year of age, I found out that he was allergic to milk, eggs, ALL nuts and ALL shellfish (and now allergic to ALL mammalian meats). Well, let's rewind back to 2010 when food allergies and intolerances weren't as prevalent as they are today. Maybe they were, maybe they weren't, but the reality was in 2010 that the Organic/Gluten Free/Dairy and Egg Free section in the grocery stores were slim to none. I distinctly remember my local grocery store only having one type of dairy free butter alternative and now the options are endless.
I made it my mission to create different recipes for my son. I didn't want to take him to birthday parties and for him to feel left out by not being able to enjoy any goodies. Nor did I expect any parent hosting these birthday parties to provide my son with an alternative. In my experience over the years, when a person is unfamiliar and doesn't have or know anyone close to them with food allergies, they don't necessarily know how to navigate the food preparation and cross contamination aspects involved with preparing foods for individuals with special dietary restrictions.
With all that being said, I take great pride in my kitchen being 100% Nut Free and Vegan. Although my son does not have Celiac Disease, I can assure you that there will be zero cross contamination and you can rest assured knowing that your desserts will be prepared accordingly.
