One Year Blogaversay! {& White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe}

Lemon cranberry pound cake with white chocolate cream cheese frosting

Wow! Has it really been a year since Allergy Girls Eats first hit the internet?

When I started Allergy Girl Eats, I wasn’t sure what to expect. All I knew is that we needed more allergy peeps sharing their stories of everyday life with anaphylaxis. I was feeling alone and neurotic about my food allergies, so what better place to put it all but in a blog.  Continue reading

Thoughts on the Free From Festival Berlin

The Free From Festival Berlin took place on November 26 & 27

Review of the Free From Festival Berlin - gluten free, sugar free and dairy free

Last weekend I attended the Free From Festival Berlin at RunBase Berlin. The festival focused on foods free from gluten, dairy, and sugar. It catered more to the clean eating and healthy lifestyle homies as opposed to the allergy free peeps, which means there wasn’t a whole lot I was able to try. Even though I couldn’t sample much, the festival was inspiring to eat better and live actively. Continue reading

Feta fournou

Feta fournou means baked feta, and if you’ve never tasted warm feta before this will change your feta-eating-life! 

feta-fournou

I’m really not a fan of anything made from goat or sheep’s milk. And I’m a baby when it comes to any cheese that isn’t cheddar or parmesan. Trying to get me to eat goat cheese is like trying to ask Ina never to cook for Jeffrey again! The worst thing possible! Continue reading

Travelling Brussels with Food Allergies

Travelling to Brussels with Food Allergies

I was a little nervous and unsure what it would be like travelling to Brussels with food allergies. I’ve actually been to Brussels twice, but both times my food allergies were not as severe as they are now. Before my first anaphylactic reaction, I was a lot more daring with the food I ate. So yes I ate Belgian chocolate without checking, and you guessed it, I had a reaction. Needless to say, my memories of Brussels are of throwing up at the train station. See why I was nervous 😉  Continue reading

Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles

Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles are only 3 ingredients! {Free from dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts & soy}

Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles are easy to make and only 3 ingredients! These whole wheat waffles use coconut oil and applesauce making them dairy free, egg free, soy free, and nut free!

We spontaneously bought a waffle maker a few months ago, and when we got it home, I realized had no idea what I was doing. All I could remember about making waffles as a kid is they took forever. We had to separate the eggs, beat the eggs whites, fold in the eggs whites, and then let the batter sit. To much work! Who wants all that egg-y bru-ha-ha?  Continue reading

Sweet Potato Mash with Caramelised Onion

Sweet Potato Mash with caramelised onions is one of my favourite parts of a big holiday meal.

Sweet Potato Mash with caramelised onions is a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving dinner. Only five ingredients, dairy free, nut free, soy free, top 8 free.

I love Thanksgiving dinner because of all the delicious side dishes you only seem to get when turkey is served. And at Casa Kwong Hing we take our sides very seriously. So much so that on our table, you will always find two kinds of mash: the traditional creamy mashed potato and sweet potato mash with caramelised onions. Why so much mash?

A Pilot’s Opinion on Flying with a peanut allergy

flying with a peanut allergy

Flying with a peanut allergy takes the fear of flying to a whole new level: you are in an enclosed environment at the mercy of others. You would think that because it can be life threatening for an allergic person to fly other passengers would rally together to make sure that individual is safe. But more often than not, passengers would rather get their complimentary peanuts than accommodate an allergy. It’s true. I’ve heard the angry murmurs after an announcement is made asking people to refrain from eating nuts on the flight. Continue reading

Nut Free Carrot Cake

Nut free carrot cake is made using apple sauce for a dense and moist cake! Served with cream cheese frosting and perfect for coffee or dessert.

September is like a seasonal limbo here in Berlin. One day it’s fresh and perfect for comfy socks and a big sweater. The next day it’s sweltering and back to wearing as little clothes as possible. The same goes for the cooking. One day you buy lots of ingredients for soup then it’s 30°C the next day and soup no longer sounds like the last thing you want to eat. There is, however, one thing that can bring happiness to this jumble of when-will-fall-finally-arrive emotion, and that is Carrot Cake!
