The holiday season is in full swing, which means invites to celebrations that most likely involve alcohol. In order to be safe and stay educated, I’ve compiled a handy guide of alcohol that contains nut ingredients. We’re talking beer, brandy, gin, liqueurs, rum, vodka, and whiskey. I was surprised that many types of gin are made with almonds, who knew!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’m gearing up to cook an epic feast that’s nut-free, gluten-free, and also includes dairy-free and vegan options! One of the trickiest items is stuffing, a dish usually full of gluten..and nuts. Today is also National Stuffing Day, which felt like the perfect time for me to share a few of my favorite recipes and pre-made allergen-free (nut-free and gluten-free specifically) stuffing mixtures.

Halloween Costume? Check. Wipes? Check.
Halloween Candy

Halloween is right around the corner and I’m finalizing my game plan for celebrating. While I love to bring my own safe candy to parties that I attend (we’re talking nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free), Halloween can provoke a bit of anxiety as it’s a holiday centered around food, most of which is usually not safe for me and my husband to consume due to the enormous amount of candy containing life-threatening allergens.

Summertime is synonymous with sunshine, backyards, beaches, and BBQ. Given that National Hot Dog Day happens this month I felt inspired to create my own Allergy Free Wife spin on the typical hot dog meal, replacing the hot dog with a fire-roasted fuji apple chicken sausage, trading in a traditional wheat bun for a gluten-free variety made with whole grains, and swapping out fries for baked lentil chips.

Last December I discovered A&J Bakery, a dedicated nut-free and gluten-free bakery located in Cranston, Rhode Island. During a trip to Rhode Island I was lucky enough to visit the bakery in person! As we walked through the doors, I realized there are very few spots in the world where my husband and I can pick out anything that we can safely eat together. I felt like a kid in a candy store, I wanted to buy EVERYTHING!
