No Milk, No Butter, No Problem

I'm not here today. I'm writing allergy-friendly bakes. This wasn't the direction I planned on taking my food writing, but as it turns out, I'm a good fit for the job.

Which makes sense, I've been doing this forever - creating recipes to fit our needs at the moment.

This week, I'm writing a cookie recipe for a friend who has food allergies that are worse than my snot-filled, gummy-throat dairy allergy. His allergy list is also more challenging, but I'm determined to write a safe bake.

What a fun challenge.

You Boogerbutts have a yummy day & boogie boogie :-)

    1. Sometimes they're easy swaps, sometimes not so easy. But that's the fun.

      Saw you added reply on your blog. It's a fun feature on blogs. People get to chat and it's far more personal.

    1. It's so much fun. I do this each day, anyway, now I'm just helping someone else.

      Saw the donkey butt thing ... brilliant.

    1. Hey Christine - I never baked with cow's milk anyway, as I find it gross. That, and most nearly all my bakes are vegan anyway. Now though, we have a few other restrictions for our friend, but the challenge is great fun.

      Happy 2015.

    1. It's my kind of thing, and I do it already for us, so why not try and write something for someone else.

      Read your post. Great new cover.

  10. I knew a guy who couldn't eat much. More food allegries than you could imagine, plus the gluten thing. He said that one of the few restaurants he could go to were asian ones.

    1. That makes sense if they had lots of veggies and rice. Easy on the tummy.

  12. A challenge can be fun, especially if it's in the area you enjoy messing around in. This morning I spent a couple of hours doing miniature scenario photography. OHMYGOSH...so much fun. I'll have to introduce this new theme on my blog. That macro lens is exactly what I needed to launch this. Love it. I have to think of a title for my miniature photo theme. I've asked hubby to help find a fun name. If you think of anything, shout it out. Or email me :) I'm behind again on emails and blogs, but I finally made it to yours to say 'hey'! Hope you had a groovy day. Almost time for popcorn...

    1. I am excited for your new theme. Very fun. And hahaha, I spent the morning writing food and taking close-ups. No micro for me yet, but soon.

      Really excited to see what you come up with. I still miss your other blog.

      I'll give the title a think ... hmmm ...

    Are you happily whisking a dairy-free bake for your friend? Try using some vegan recipes... That will work!
