It’s about time for me to share the excellent website Cook It Allergy Free . It is indeed a fabulous find!

I remember when Kim hopped on the scene not too long ago. She came out of nowhere and made a name for herself and her blog in no time.

Kim is an incredibly creative mother of two really cute boys. And she’s a bit of a health-nut, I love that about her.  I always learn something from her posts and recipes.

What I really love about Kim though, is how she values her family time. Kim does not hesitate to take mini-breaks so she can spend more time with her young family.

Did I mention her recipes (and the accompanying pictures) are always incredible? And they’re so allergy-friendly.

To make allergy-free living easier for other people, Kim created an iPhone/IPad app that allows you to tailor hundreds of gluten-free recipes to meet your specific needs.   It’s incredible and really user-friendly.  With the tap of your finger you can find substitutions for just about any ingredient.

Clearly I could go on and on about Kim and the work she does for our gluten-free community, but I know you want to see what I made!  I’ve been wanting to make many of Kim’s recipes for months!  This was the perfect opportunity.

First of all, I made Kim’s Granola Oatmeal Cookie Bars. My almost-five-year old starts school in September so I’m busy getting us both ready for school lunches. This recipe is perfect, and really easy to prepare and play with!

My kids love French Toast so I knew I had to try Kim’s Vegan Banana French Toast. We all loved this recipe. I found it really quick to prepare so breakfast was on the table and everyone was happy.  I had a little bit of the mixture leftover so I used it in a smoothie.

Kim’s recipes are so kid-friendly because they’re tested on her two little boys so I figured I should try her  Grilled Asparagus with Balsamic Tomatoes. I made a few minor changes (no goat cheese and I used coconut oil to cook the tomatoes).  It was delicious and even Callum ate it – told you they were kid-approved recipes.

If you haven’t already, make sure you take some time to check out Kim’s blog. Of course you can also find Kim on Twitter and Facebook.
