You Might Live With Food Allergies If …

Fortunately, my son and I are not anaphylactic (well my son does get a funny feeling throat and mouth from eggs), bur there are seriously uncomfortable symptoms we deal with beginning anywhere between 1-12 hours after consuming the culprit food… that lasts for up to two days… SO, I can TOTALLY relate to this! I keep an Epi-pen for our son just in case, so that is definitely on the out the door checklist.

curtis_sittenfeld_fare_conferenceLast month, attendees at the first FARE National Food Allergy Conference were treated to a heartfelt, warm and witty keynote speech, “Finding Your Food Allergy Voice,” by bestselling author Curtis Sittenfeld, whose daughter has food allergies.

Trying to make the Ratatouille from Ratatouille

Simple, beautiful, and naturally food allergen free (of the 10 common)… minus the Parmesan cheese. Ratatouille is one of my all time favorite movies too!

Comfort food. Such a strange term. Makes me think of neurotic bulimics smearing chocolate eclairs over themselves.

The scene in Disney’s Ratatouille, where Remy the rat-chef prepares the dish for Anton Ego, the blisteringly arrogant food critic brilliantly voiced by Peter O’Toole, provides a far better insight into what comfort food is.

And along the way it shows you how to make a fantastic looking ratatouille.
