Welcome! I posted my final post in October 2010 for the sole reason that for those who need it, it is the post I most want them to see. It was, for us, an answered prayer. I wish you the best of luck in your journey with food allergies, eczema, and/or asthma. I have since founded ChasingMotherhood. CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org XO

Spending Memorial Day Weekend with a few close friends at our house was very special for our family. With the kids crew slip and sliding the day away as we sat and watched with amusement, I realized how incredibly lucky we are to have friends who are willing to sacrifice some major food groups for the weekend (three days of rice milk in coffee for some!). I also depended greatly on the gems in the fabulous Sophie Safe Cooking to keeps us all well fed (corn muffins, chocolate chip pancakes and chocolate frosted cupcakes). Once the ground rules were set in advance of the visit, smart choices and menu planning kept food safety the highest priority. All the kids ate the same allergy friendly meals so no one felt "different", including apple juice pops on the parade sidelines! With the right combination of fabulous friends willing to sacrifice, winning recipes to meet allergy needs, and some lucky weather - lots of fun can be had by all. Happy Memorial Day!
