I don’t really remember the exact moment that I realized I was in love with food, but all of my favorite holidays (and my birthday) all include some sort of feast. Many of the foods that I treat myself to on Easter, Thanksgiving, July 4th, and Christmas are exclusive to those days (and for good reason)!
While I do experiment in the kitchen from time to time, I prefer to go with what I know on holidays. I’m often cooking for a large group of family and friends, so I don’t want to potentially ruin a dish.
The recipes below are from all over the web. I spend at least 1 hour each week searching for allergy-friendly recipes. I love having all of mine in the same place so that I can reference them the next time I’m preparing for a big dinner.
Everything below is completely free of peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish because those are my major allergies. I’m lactose intolerant and I usually use coconut milk/cream/yogurt as a substitute in recipes calling for dairy.
