I have tried to make my own sunflower seed butter in my food processor, but even after a looong time in the processor and a fair amount of canola, I still get a "paste" so thick you can slice it! What am I doing wrong? Do I just need a better processor? We haven't retried pumpkin seeds yet - she got hives from it about a year ago when we first tried it. I'll probably wait until pumpkins start showing up in stores so I can get truly uncontaminated seeds. Thanks!
This is the bread my son depends on...I've been making it for over 2 years now. We use applesauce to replace the egg, so I guess we could call ours applesauce bread!? Going to try it with sweet potatoes. Sounds yummy!
Susan C! We are glad you found us! What allergies are you managing? Is there anything we can help with? Please visit our Food & Cooking forum for assistance with this or any other recipe. http://community.kidswithfooda...rum/food_and_cooking
Thanks!!! This is probably my favorite cupcake recipe ever. They aren't hard to make, just time consuming. And the only downside is that it requires peach extract which most grocery stores don't carry. I got mine on Amazon. Otherwise, they are reallllllly goooood and also they aren't overly sweet or anything. Perfect for just about anyone!
Peach extract?? I've never even seen that! But I have made different varieties of fruit infused vodkas - I wonder if you could make peach "extract" that way?? I'm going to have to look up the recipe for that one and see if I can tweak something to be safe for my allergy set (gluten, dairy, egg). I love peach!
I would opt for flax meal instead of flax seeds just to make sure that they soak in the liquid and mix through without an errant seed remaining "crunchy". Flax and chia are very similar and both can be used to make "goo" to replace eggs.
I tried this bread and my family loved it. My older son who doesn't have any food allergies ate 2 slices with butter and wanted more. My husband didn't think it tasted like gluten free bread at all! Thanks for this recipe. I was using egg replacer before and it didn't have much flavor. I like the extra vitamins that we are getting by using sweet potato too. ��
I need to check and see if my kids can even have yeast but I was wondering if anyone has tried this with a different flour mix, my kids cannot have rice, which is in the King Arthur mix. Sounds so good and we would love to have a non soy bread or cracker!,,
Now that the flu is epidemic, more information is being distributed through the media regarding this issue of egg allergy and the flu vaccine. Here is one from National Jewish Health in Denver that came out today. Changing Advice: Egg-Allergic Patients Should Get Flu Vaccine Without Delay
My dd received the flu shot for the first time this year. She has had severe reactions to miniscule amounts of egg. But she had no reaction to the flu shot! It was quite a relief. Her allergist, who sees many kids with severe egg allergy, said at most he's seen a few kids with minor reactions. The vast majority have not reacted at all.
My son is extremely allergic to egg and gelatin when used in vaccines. When he was 4 years old, he had a severe reaction to his shots. Two months later, he received the flu vaccine (h1n1 as well as reg flu) and had the same reaction within 15 minutes. We saw an allergist who did a skin test proving it was the gelatin and egg. He has heart defects so we tried to do the multi-step flu shot, and he had an immediate reaction. Hives, rapid breathing and pulse, burning inside, lethargy. When he...
I'm sorry to hear that your children had reactions to the flu vaccine. Other components of the flu vaccine like gelatin can cause allergic reactions in some children. Your allergist can sort that out. And of course, if your child did have a reaction to the vaccine, as the article said, that is a different scenario and you'd have to follow up with an allergist for as well.
If it's so safe, why is it recommended that it be given in an allergist's/pediatrician's office? Also, why wouldn't the mist be safe? It sounds like good news but I think I'll still give it a few years for my son in case they change their minds again...
Belgiumite - the flu mist contains live virus; it's a different type of vaccine. The studies the updated recommendations were made on were based on the injectable form of the vaccine. dvk - as a consumer, you make the decisions for your child. However, these guidelines are what the CDC have adopted based on the clinical evidence. Other parents will want this information to initiate a conversation about the flu vaccine with their child's allergist, and that is why we've provided it.
Our allergist says that they have never had an egg-allergic child react iwith ana to the flu vaccine. They give it in the office to be on the safe side (they have all the rescue meds in the unlikely event there should be a reaction). My son has had it the past three years without any issues whatsoever. My son is ana to trace amounts of egg--he has reacted to cross-contamination. He also has asthma and if he gets the flu, he is at increased risk of hospitalization or even death. We have...
My daughter is allergic to eggs and has never passed a flu vaccine skin test. This year is the first time she's ever had a flu vaccine. She developed a rash (not common with her) several hours later. While this may be a reaction to something else, I'm reluctant to have her vaccinated again unless she outgrows the allergy. Her doctor dismissed my concerns completely. We're looking for a new allergist.
Product Review: We tried the Aged White Cheddar Puffs and really liked them. They are mild in flavor and not salty. I was worried that the puffs would have the texture of Styrofoam, but they didn't. They melt in your mouth. The entire bag was gone within minutes. If you like nutritional yeast, you'll like these Puffs.
