Filling the Pantry

I am including a new section to my blog called “Filling the Pantry.” See it on the right-hand side below the blog archive.

I was inspired when I saw the “Foods” section in No Whey Mama’s blog . By the way she has posted some good-looking recipes. I want to try the Monkey cookies -- I’ll just need to use the egg replacer and skip the nuts.

Anyway, when I started this blog I wanted it to be a humorous (on the rare good day) resource for people and place to share experiences and tips. I have always said that dealing with food allergies is MUCH easier once you know how to fill your pantry with various “safe” things that your child can eat.

I have included lots of references to different products we like at our house, like here and here. But I thought listing cool products on the right would make it a lot easier for the “hordes” of people that read this blog.

When I was roaming other blogs, I did find a reference to Divvies. But I need to see them kid-tested by Big Guy and Little Guy before I will post it on the Filling the Pantry section. They look yummy. Has any one tried any of these out?

Also, let me know if you have any other good food suggestions.

Thanks!

Hey, thanks again! You might also want to try Jennifershmoo's (of Vegan Lunchbox fame)Banana Oatmeal Cookies. They don't have eggs, and you could leave out the sunflower seeds. The recipe is on her second site, Schmooedfood.blogspot.com

Wow - now that you poseted on my blog I feel kind of famous :)

So we have tried Divvies and liked them alot! We got a sampler with yummy gumballs, rock candy and jawbreakers....though Amazon.

Honestly though - my son is more of a potato chip guy than a sweet guy (he did NOT inherit that from me).

I've posted a huge list of foods my son can eat on my blog (http://mykidsallergies.blogspot.com/2007/01/commercial-foods-andrew-can-eat.html). I've also just posted a coupon code for NoNuttin' foods, which makes great granola bars which are incredibly safe.
