Welcome to 2Cooks4Allergies!
If this is your first time to the site, then greetings!
After 60 years of eating everything and anything, I discovered that I had four food allergies: Wheat (gluten), dairy, eggs, and peas. If you are what you eat, then I used to be a cheese ball. I was devastated when I lost my favorite foods. The first six months was a real struggle. I tried making my own bread and ended up with only crumbs. My pantry was filled with every type of gluten free flour available.
I began reading food labels, only to find that there is either wheat or egg in everything. Fortunately, I enjoy cooking, and so the adventure began. I took one dish at a time, whatever I was missing the most. Eventually I began to have real success with my dishes. My husband is my tester – if he doesn’t enjoy the meal then it’s a failure. I need to make delicious meals that everyone will enjoy. I don’t want them to say, “Oh that’s a good gluten free cake”. I want them to say, “What a great cake”.
I now have developed recipes for enchiladas (with gluten free flour tortillas), lemon cake, pizza, sausage rolls, and so many more.
I’m lucky to have a friend that is a chef. Eileen helps me take my recipes to the next level, and together we create videos to help you make mouth-watering allergy friendly meals.
