So I’ve been blogging for more than five months now, and in addition to sharing my own allergy-free recipe creations I’ve been exploring the delicious treats that other bloggers have come up with. Some have been spectacular, like when I combined Katie’s ‘growing oatmeal’ trick and Julie’s egg white oatmeal to create a ginormous bowl of protein-packed Snickerdoodle oatmeal! Others haven’t been so successful, mainly because I end up trying to adapt recipes to fit my own unique allergy needs. And there are some things I’ve steered clear of just because they seemed strange, like mug cakes. Whoever heard of making cake in the microwave? I just didn’t think it could work, and besides, I like ice cream way more than cake, so barely ever eat the latter.
