My Favourite Tools For Food Allergy Cooking

Thanksgiving is almost here!  As Food Allergy Moms, this can be a time of intense cooking.  If we aren’t hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner, we’re usually helping with one so our food allergy kiddos have safe options.  Which is why this is great timing for a post about cooking tools that make our lives easier.  

School Supplies Checklist

Summer is the perfect time to go over your allergy plans and make sure you're ready for the new school year.  Print this list to remind you what to buy now to avoid the crunch before school starts.

To Food Allergy Moms, With Love

It was this time of year about 2 years ago when I got sick.  Spring was in the air.  The warmth after a long Canadian winter was finally doing more than just tease.  Our family was planning details of summer vacation and Father’s Day was on the horizon.  My kids were in the home stretch of the school year.  In fact, my youngest daughter was finishing grade 1.  As a mom, I had looked forward to this year with anticipation.  Not that I didn’t want to spend time with my kids, but given I would have 7 hours each day to myself, I started to dream.  I dreamt about how I could flaunt my new-found independence.  Would I take on one or two projects that meant the world to me?  Would I start work full-time again?  Would I do a Pilates at any time of the day?
