Red pepper pasta sauce [DF, GF, SF]

Every parent has a meal in their repetoire that is ideal for the nights when you’re low on motivation, or time. Being a parent of a child with allergies, and teaching my child about allergies, means that it can be harder to knock up meals quickly. I need to ensure the kitchen is clean and safe before cooking begins and I try to involve Daisy wherever I can too. This red pepper pasta sauce recipe is one of my fail safe dinners. Daisy will ALWAYS eat it, I can add some veggies and protein to bulk it out and it is pretty cheap too!

Attending a wedding with FPIES (or other food allergies)

We have been living with FPIES in our family for 3 years now. Parenting a 3-year-old isn’t always easy, even without food allergies. When we were invited to a family wedding while we were very excited, to see my brother-in-law finally marry his long-term partner, it also filled us with dread. Attending a wedding with FPIES was something that I had never really thought about and now the wedding has passed I want to share some tips with you in the hope of helping someone else.

Keeping your home safe for your allergy baby (AD)

Having a baby with allergies can really feel so scary and isolating at times. When my 4-year-old daughter Daisy was a baby I would often stay home, as it was far easier than going out and facing disappointment in restaurants. Or dealing with the fear of being in someone else’s home and seeing our FPIES allergy triggers everywhere. If you’re someone who likes to stay home, as I did, to help your own anxiety, then these are my top tips for keeping your home safe for your allergy baby.

Dairy free oat biscuits [DF, GF, SF]

When making dairy free items I’m always pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to convert basic baking items. For butter, we typically substitute with Vitalite (the sunflower one) and for milk, we use almond milk, which is our preferred dairy free alternative. These dairy free oat biscuits have been a favourite in our home for a couple of years now. They are simple to make, fairly cheap and you can freeze the dough or the leftovers too. The ingredients I have used are dairy free, soya free (soya lecithin may appear in the specific ingredients I used) and gluten free. Please ensure you always check the ingredients you are using, as ingredients may vary by brand. Scroll down near the end of this recipe for the recipe card to get started right away! If you want a version of these biscuits with dairy and gluten then check out these homemade oat biscuits.
