Why Meal Planning Isn't Always the Best Option for Busy Food Allergy Moms (and What To Do Instead)

Meal planning for me has become a blend of structure (pre-planning) and flexibility (cooking from the pantry) to fit whatever stage or needs we have as a family and I as a mom.  This perfect mixture of structure and flexibility keep my meals inspired with variety but also efficient and running smoothly.

Allergy-Friendly Penne Pasta Bake

Its a cold and dreary January day here in Calgary.  This is the perfect day for a comforting, warm, healthy and delicious pasta bake.  It's this kind of recipe I go-to this time of year.  This is our first year with a gluten intolerance in the family so I haven't been making as many pasta dishes lately.  But the kids have been begging for pasta so I thought I better get to it.  And I have to say, this recipe doesn't disappoint.  The kids LOVED it! 

My Easy Food Allergy Baking Tools (Which Make Great Gifts For The Food Allergy Baker)

It’s that time of year!  Time to subtly hint to your hubby about what you want for Christmas.  Or maybe not? I was recently reading a marriage blog that said we shouldn’t be subtle (or expect) our hubbies to know what we want.  We need to be honest and tell them exactly how we feel (in a loving way), and take out all those unfair “read my mind” expectations.  And I have to say I agree.  Which means if you’re a Food Allergy Mom that cooks and bakes as much as I do, this post comes at the perfect time.  It’s full of my favourite food allergy baking tools and you can easily forward it to your hubby, or anybody else who needs to buy a present for you.
