Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies (Egg-free)

As part of my quest to find party recipes which are safe for my daughter’s friends who have allergies, I tested this egg-free cookie recipe for a Valentine’s Day party earlier this year and was blown away by how delicious they were!  Moist, buttery, and just sweet enough.  While not healthy by any stretch, theyRead More

Brownies – without the eggs!

I have been very fortunate in that so far, neither of my girls have any food allergies (nor do hubby or I!).  My young niece, on the other hand, has not been so lucky, and cannot eat nuts or eggs.  Because she is often placed in the unfair position of not being able to shareRead MoreRead More
