Re: Celebrating Thanksgiving – Focus on the Day, Not on the Food

Robyn Pollock Peterson ·
Good Morning! I'm a Mom of 2, ages 3.5 and 18 months. In our household we have an anaphylactic dairy allergy and a corn allergy. I am the one with the anaphylaxis and I've lived WELL with this allergy all my life. I'd just like to say that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and if there is extended family and friends who will cooperate with your food allergies, you can have a safe and delicious Thanksgiving. It's about trust... and about education... and possibly about providing recipes and...

Thank you for sharing these tips and recipes! When I have to make one in a rush--I put a box of Enjoy Life soft baked cookies (gluten, dairy, egg, nut free) into a bag and smash them up...then I just press them into the pie plate! The snickerdoodles are great as a base for pumpkin pie!

That's a great idea Tatimom! Do you add melted margarine like a graham cracker crust?? Or are the soft cookies enough to hold together on their own??

It's too late for Turkey Day, but for next month, what I found when I am making dough is to make it days ahead of time and let it sit in the fridge for a few days. Somehow it came out better that way.

bits of squash are the basis for our stuffing. better if you can roast the pieces of squash first. be sure to use lots of marjoram or poultry seasoning for that familiar stuffing taste

Re: Milk-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

Melanie Carver ·
Hi Kathy, Yes, I would assume this would do nicely with celery instead of mushroom. I've not made it myself (I'm just now convincing myself that it's okay to eat celery twice a year ). I would suggest replacing the 1 cup of mushrooms with about 3/4 cup diced celery. For the cream of mushroom soup, it is delicious on pasta -- I mix it with broccoli and served on gluten-free pasta. Also--good for casserole; but if you're storing it before use, it will really thicken/condense (garbanzo flour is...

My son just turned 2 and was diagnosed at 18 months. I also have a 4yr old daughter that is dairy free. She can tolerate baked dairy pretty well, but we eliminate all other major dairy sources. Both of my children have also had severe GERD since birth. Jill

I have not seen tapioca starch used as an egg replacer for pecan pie. Have you tried looking for a vegan version?

Re: Mom's Allergy-Friendly Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

kandicejo ·
The other difference between pumpkin and pecan pies is the body or structure of the filling. This is why I like to do smaller individual pecan pies. A pecan pie is a sugar custard and does not have the pumpkin puree to help with stability. I don't think only using a starch to set up a pecan pie will work. If you can do soy, Post Punk Kitchen (very reputable vegan cooking blog) has a Maple Pecan Pie that uses tofu.

For egg free pecan pie I prefer to make individual little pies called Pecan Tassies. We have a recipe in the Safe Eats Recipe collection that is available for Family Members (cost is $25 or sponsored memberships available). Family Members can find the recipe here: Pecan Tassies
Comment

Re: Mom's Allergy-Friendly Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Kathy P ·
Just an FYI that I tried that Pecan Tassie recipe as a bigger pie and it was messy disaster! That filling doesn't have the structure you need for a bigger pie. It is mainly sugar and made a caramel fountain all over my oven! It might work OK in mini pies that bake for shorter time, but not so much in a full size pie.

This is a great recipe! We have a corn and a dairy allergy in our household and my kids and I are making a pumpkin pie from scratch for Thanksgiving... I have a blog entry that describes how to prepare pumpkin from scratch (as in using those little pumpkins the kids picked out around Halloween time). It also tells how to make your own dairy-free, corn-free graham cracker crust, and what to do with the seeds from the pumpkin! :-) http://anunexpectedlynourishin...ves-way-to-fall.html

Hey! That's the pie I made yesterday! Except that I used canned coconut milk, modified corn starch, and added cinnamon. Cybelle Pascal's rice milk version of the recipe includes a packet of gelatin as well, I guess it helps thicken.

If you don't need these to be gluten free, they can be made with wheat flour. My favorite combo is 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour plus 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour. But you can use 2 cups all purpose flour also.
