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!

Spicy Vegetarian Chili

Spicy vegetarian chili is perfect for warming up on a cold fall day. Pair this vegetarian chili with rice or over nachos!

Spicy vegetarian chili holds a special place in my heart because it’s the first thing I ever cooked for my hubby! If you’ve read my allergy love story, you will know that our first date ended in the hospital due to an anaphylactic reaction (sesame). We were college students, and it was a pretty scary experience not only for us but also for our friends. They were incredibly supportive after my reaction, and even came to pick us up at the hospital. As a thank you for taking care of me, I decided to prepare an allergy friendly vegetarian meal, featuring spicy vegetarian chili.  Continue reading

I was back home in Canada for a couple of weeks and took the opportunity to check out all the awesome allergy friendly brands we don’t get in Germany. One that I was excited to try was Enjoy Life.

Oh, oatmeal raisin muffins how I have missed you! You see, I don’t own any muffin tins. But I was back in Canada for two weeks, which meant I was taking full advantage of my parent’s pimped kitchen. I have a tiny kitchen, whereas my mom works as a chef for Miele, so hers is bad @$$. She also has every gadget a gal could dream of including muffin tins!  Continue reading
