Grasshopper Pie, Teff Muffins, Grain Free Bday Cake, & More–Featured in Allergy Free Wednesday ~ 4/4/12!

Allergy Free Recipes


Welcome back to another week of Allergy Free Wednesdays!

A week of yumminess that is aimed at making it easier for you to create healthy, allergy free foods for you and your family.

As I mentioned, this past week, there is no “clear rule” against including processed ingredients in your submission (but we hope you are moving in that direction :-)).  So…occasionally you will find some “whole foodie undesirables” in the entries.

What to do if you see processed foods and don’t want them?:

So—-welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW).  AFW is a weekly blog hop where folks can share their allergy-free cuisine, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and connect with others living or caring for someone with food allergies.

Your weekly submissions will be shared on 7 blogs!  Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before.  Please visit each blog to see their features!  Your hostesses are:

    Speak Your Mind


  1. This week I shared dairy free and gluten free (if you use GF oats) no-bake bird’s nest cookies. A fun Easter treat! 🙂

  2. Also, I finally put up my tried and true recipe for Bacon, Egg, and Cheese “Muffins”. It’s one of my favorite bulk/make-ahead meals, especially since breakfast can get in a rut sometimes and it’s nice to spice it up!

  3. Thanks Adrienne 🙂 Yes, I’m planning to host a blog carnival in the future, but I would like to fill a niche that isn’t already too popular. Do you know where I can find a list of all the existing real food blog carnivals? Thanks for checking out my sites too! If you love Middle Eastern food, I’m sure you’ll find some recipes you like on MidEATS 🙂 All the best to you!

    • What niche are you thinking about? There are some plentiful lists out there–maybe we can put our heads together :-).

      • I really don’t know yet 🙂 It will depend on what already exists (I haven’t yet looked) … I started a discussion on the NLN forum about this – would love to put our heads together and discuss! Have a lovely day.

        • I’m currently thinking of whole foods and healthy living, but there are already hops like that. So I’m not sure. Too narrow and you won’t get visitors. I like the Wed one I have now b/c it gives freedom for those now totally whole foods. I’d like all foods to be whole, but I’d also like freedom for those “not there” yet….

  4. Hello Adrienne, can you believe that this is my first time to notice that you host a blog carnival!? I’m a fellow Nourished Living Network blogger — I blog about healthy living at My Life in a Pyramid ( and I coauthor a site on traditional Middle Eastern food called MidEATS (http://mideats). So for this week’s carnival I liked to one recipe from each of my sites:

    Rosewater-Scented Pistachio No-Bake Cookies (Grain-Free & Vegan):

    Raw Milk Orange Julius with Ginger & Chia Seeds (with Dairy-Free Option):

    Check them out sometime 🙂

    • Hi Heba! I used to host the Traditional Tuesdays but was getting the sense that it wasn’t the best fit for my blog so I just recently started this one. It’s still not quite right – I’d love to have healthy living posts as well…but it might come in time. I think some of the ideas shared here are genius. I will certainly check out your sites! We love Middle Eastern food! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Adrienne! I’ve linked up two muffin recipes from my March Muffin Madness event (for which the final roundup linky is still up if anyone wants to share their gf muffin recipe!). Thanks for co-hosting. You girls are working very hard for AFW. 🙂


  6. Thanks for hosting! I’ve added you to my email list so I’ll remember this great party! Finally got my soup linked up!

    • Looks wonderful! I bookmarked it! I never really cook w/ peppers like poblano, etc. Do you just purchase them at the store – I assume I could also use dried? Also, I typically don’t purchase the fire roasted tomatoes. Any ideas how to alter the flavor of regular ones to make it taste just as good? I’m a little “on the fence” about Muir Glen’s cans w/ BPA, plus that type is quite pricey. Thanks!

      • Hey Adrienne sorry it took me so long to respond! My email sent your reply to junk mail…so not cool! I’ve had a hard time finding poblanos at certain stores…most of the time I can find them at whole foods. You can definitely use dried! BPA…yes it’s evil I should also stop buying canned foods! I would suggest using tomatoes and you can purée them and add your own seasonings! Always healthier 🙂 I hope this helped! If not you can always contact me again, always happy to help! 🙂

        • I only buy bionaturae tomatoes in cans b/c I did research and theirs are really really low. I’ll have to get some peppers now – thanks!

  7. Hello!

    Today I shared a flourless banana bread recipe. It contains no grains, gluten, dairy, corn, peanuts, soy, or sugar; and it is also suitable for paleo diets! Enjoy 😀

  8. This week I’m sharing my homemade Almond Roca recipe, which is perfect for Easter baskets! Plus it’s made with honey, so you can feel good about eating it! Gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, and GAPS-legal (you can use my white chocolate recipe instead of the traditional chocolate layer if you can’t handle cocoa powder).

  9. I don’t see a link to link up? 🙁 Am I missing something?
