I am a high school student who has been baking my whole life. As someone with countless allergies – everything from gluten and nuts to pitted fruits and legumes – it has always been a struggle finding recipes that accommodate my needs. Because of this challenge, I have become comfortable substituting different ingredients and using recipes as a very loose suggestion at a young age. A lot of my dishes resulted in absolute disasters (think: brownies harder than a rock) to delicious masterpieces (if I do say so myself). I absolutely love baking, and food allergies shouldn’t inhibit anyone’s ability to share this love.
I first created this blog as a way for people with food allergies to have a variety of easy desserts with easy substitutions available to them. I know firsthand how hard it was to start baking with food allergies, so I want to make it as easy as possible for all of you! My blog soon morphed into a website with easy desserts, but I still include allergy-friendly variations for all of the recipes.
If you have any allergies you would like to have me include substitutions for, contact me and I will either give you a few suggestions that work for almost any recipe, or if the substitutions vary recipe to recipe, I will do my best to include them under the section “Variations” in every recipe. Or, if you have any substitutions that are tried and true, please share them with me so that I can share them with everybody.
I would love to hear what you have to say. Please contact me if you have any questions or suggestions!
