Christmas is just two weeks away; the promise of good things hangs heavy in the air, doesn’t it?
Celebrating the season with sweet things to enjoy and give away is part of what makes Christmas so magical. But making holiday treats safe and scrumptious poses a really big problem to food allergy families like mine. It takes a lot of mental energy to sort out safe ingredients, select solid recipes, and stretch the budget to accommodate specialty products. Figuring out how to keep family traditions alive around our holiday table after allergies transformed our kitchen was burdensome, and I got burned out fast. Finding my way back toward a familiar, delicious holiday treats left me frustrated and too discouraged to do much more than snag allergy friendly candy canes when I saw them.
I refused to give up. Lots of trial and error ended up being worth it in the long run. I have so many recipes at the ready now that I couldn’t possibly make them all in one month if I tried! From childhood favorites reimagined to fresh takes on holiday standby’s, I’ve collected our absolute favorite cookies, candies and sharable sweets that keep my kids clamoring for more into an eBook that I hope will help make your holiday sweet again too.
