I have struggled with allergies my entire life, going out to eat and finding recipes that work for me has always been a constant struggle. Foods with peanuts, nuts, coconut, nutmeg, etc. are all off limits (I go into anaphylactic shock). My foods have always consisted of mostly “comfort food” or what I like to call “comfort food.” My husband has always thought of it as healthy, but its what I am most “comfort”able cooking.
Since my allergies restrict me from cooking certain foods or eating out, I have developed different ways for myself and my growing family to enjoy them. I am the only one in my household so far (just had a baby) that has a known food allergy. My goal is to teach her how to not be afraid of cooking and to take risks. I don’t want her to be afraid just because her mom has an allergy.
