( 1 )

Overview

My story begins about 4 years ago when my grandson, Brandon, was restricted to a diet free of gluten, wheat, eggs, dairy, and peanuts.

I was totally bewildered. How could I possibly cook properly for him and his family? I only remember once that I wept in my kitchen pantry out of frustration, but many times I felt that inadequate.

Brandon's mom gave me a couple of recipes, which I prepared on every visit. I also had a house rule that no one was...

Overview

My story begins about 4 years ago when my grandson, Brandon, was restricted to a diet free of gluten, wheat, eggs, dairy, and peanuts.

I was totally bewildered. How could I possibly cook properly for him and his family? I only remember once that I wept in my kitchen pantry out of frustration, but many times I felt that inadequate.

Brandon's mom gave me a couple of recipes, which I prepared on every visit. I also had a house rule that no one was allowed to eat forbidden foods in his presence. I felt that I was doing all that I could until one innocent remark changed my life.

We were in a grocery store and Brandon took my hand, led me to a display, and said longingly, "Look, Nana, those are called muffins". It brought tears to my eyes, and I vowed to myself that I would learn to cook delicious foods - gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, and peanut free.

It has been a journey of trial and error. I cannot tell you that I have successes every time, but imagination and persistence has paid off. I have felt led to write this book, and it is my wish that it will help your family as much as it has helped mine.

    I am very much looking forward to trying the recipes in this boo

    I am very much looking forward to trying the recipes in this book. My 1 year old has had a terrible year. We didn't know what was wrong. He hasn't been gaining weight.  Two weeks prior to his first birthday, our Pediatrician told me that I can start giving him the "one year old foods". GREAT!!! Eggs for dinner! Immediate anaphylactic reaction. So, being a former nurse and proactive Mommy, I made an appointment with a Pediatric Allergist. Scratch tests showed allergies to eggs, wheat, soy and peanuts.  I had the Allergist send records to our Pediatrician, who tehn wrote orders for bloodwork. I just got the results today. They had called me in because they wanted to discuss it extensively with me. He is now also allergic to milk, sesame seeds, walnuts, seafood...and these are just his food allergies! He has numerous environmental allergies as well. I was reading Barbaras overview and started crying. I know how she was feeling looking into the pantry. I also have a 3 year old. She has not 1 single allergy! She has been told numerous times that she may NOT share any of her food with her baby brother. And then I have to show her his medical card, his medical bracelet and his epipens. I never thought that I would have this issue. And I pray for all the families who go through this. It's very scary. People treat food allergies like they're not anything significant. But when they're little kids and we all know kids share food...it can be life threatening in some cases. So again, I cannot wait to try these recipes. Along with the Elecare Jr. that I was prescribed to also feed him. Thank you, Barbara!
