My Valentine’s Gift for Allergenistas

Ok, I have been going on about all the wonderful product I received for the Safe & Sound Dinner, and it didn’t seem fair for those of you who couldn’t make it, so I had an idea for all my loved ones with food allergies…If you are in the Chicagoland area on Sunday and want to pick up a giftbag of your own filled with allergen free swag… I will be home on Sunday and will be giving bags away if you come and get them at my home. It is first come first serve, so email me at and I will send you my address. There are a total of about 25 bags and I will save 5 for out of towners that email me their address (sorry you won’t get it in time for the big day).

Now I don’t want to leave anyone out of the Valentine’s Day treats, so below I am posting some treats you can buy for your sweethearts…and also some recipes you can make for a night in. Enjoy!

Kind Bars – I found this gluten and dairy free treat by reading a post from Gluten Free Betsy, Starbucks was giving away samples last Friday, I got the Mango Macadamia and have been hooked ever since. It has a nice tangy taste and is high in folic acid and Vitamin D3 and is a good source of fiber. A perfect good morning for your active allergenistas.

This is more for the decadent Valentine’s Day Breakfast… I went to the Free From Market in Orland Park where I got the chance to pick up some tasty Kinnikinnick Cinnamon Sugar Cake Doughnuts, I swear to you, no one will ever know the difference between these and their Gluten Full counterparts. A big kudos to Kinnikinnick, the strides you have made, wow!

Ok, on to recipes that will say nothing but love, enjoy!

Boeuf Bourgignon
Chicken Vesuvio
Lamb Chops Served with a White Bean Puree
Pork with Sweet Cabbage
Risotto with Red Pepper Puree and Fresh Basil
Spring Rolls – Chinese New Year is on Valentine’s Day!
Sugar cookies – use your heart cutter!
