Hi all. I'm brand new to this whole chat thing, but I do want to share my egg substitute recipe. Use one packet of Knox unflavored gelatine and mix with one cup boiling water. Stir until gelatine is completely dissloved. Use 3 tablespoons of gelatine mixture per each egg your recipe calls for , et voila- great tasting baked goods, pancakes,etc.. without the worry. There is a bit of difference in how high whatever you're cooking rises, but it's nothing a little extra baking soda can't fix. I have found that this really does not work in cake mixes though. Happy cooking. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
By the way, Katie is 2 1/2 and has egg, peanut, and tree nut allergies too. In fact, just got back from her cousin's birthday party where the parents insisted on serving chick-fil-a (fried in peanut oil) despite their knowing about the allergies. How's that for compassion and understanding?!
Ciao for now,
Katie's Mom

Hang in there peanut and egg allergies are not easy but kids learn to cope. My 10 year old daughter has had this since she was 8 months old and only had one peanut reaction when she was three and in daycare. We don't take major steps to prevent a reaction. Just good communication with the adult she is with and making sure she knows what not to put into her mouth. She even colors eggs at Easter and her sister still eats peanut butter, just not with her in the room. If you go to the Dairy Queen make sure to order especially for the child and tell them they have peanut allergies so they will clean off their utensils well before making the child's treat. Chips Ahoy cookies in the blue bag are good too. Going on vacation is the hardest, eating in lots of different restaurants.

Thought I'd post this again for everyone's information:
Egg substitute recipe:
1 cup boiling water (8 fl. oz. or 250 ml)
1 packet unflavored Knox gelatine (7g)
Mix together and stir until dissolved.
Add 3 tablespoons (45ml) of gelatine mixture for each egg your recipe calls for.
You can keep the remaining mixture covered in the fridge for a week. When you need more, just melt it in the microwave or on the stovetop.
You won't notice any difference in flavor, but it may take longer for your recipe to bake. You may also want to add a bit more baking soda to help it rise. I have also noticed that this recipe does not work well with cake mixes. Let me know if anyone finds out otherwise.
Happy cooking!

Our son is almost 3 and is tree nut, egg and dairy allergic. I purchased both volumes of the recipe books from [url="http://www.foodallergy.org"]www.foodallergy.org[/url] (the food allergy and anaphylaxis network). The recipe books are FANTASTIC. They have a great recipe for birthday cake (to replace eggs, they recommend 1.5 TBSP oil, 1.5 TBSP water, plus 1 tsp baking powder mixed together), blueberry muffins (the best I have ever had), pancakes, chocolate that is safe!!! to make chocolate lollipops, cinnamon crunch cookies, christmas cookies, shamrock cookies, etc.
IT IS GREAT. Enjoy!!!
