This is not a peanut issue, but I know many of you also deal with egg allergies. DD had a food challenge today and passed! Now she is just allergic to peanuts and milk. We are very excited!!

That is awesome news!
How old is your daughter? And what were her previous RAST scores? Did you do complete avoidance or did you allow in baked goods, etc? We are also dealing with egg allergy. His first RAST at age 4 was 4.33 and it is still the same at age 6. His SPT has remained the same too. I am just wondering if my son has a chance to outgrow.

Congratulations!!!!! Such good news!
Now a laugh for you. We recently bought a new gas grill with a side burner. Hubby and I were outside the last 2 nights after the kids went to bed. We cooked EGGS using camping dishes from our dating days. Yum! We ate a great dinner outside while the bugs ate us. It was so worth it! Haven't had eggs in years. What a picture we must have been! We joked (maybe not joking) that we'll be out in the snow this winter eating eggs too!

Congrats. That's wonderful news. I dream of the day that DD might outgrow egg. I'm like Corvallis Mom: I think of what I could cook and bake. Oh to be able to bake madelines again.

Thanks everyone! For the background info: DD is 2.5, will be 3 in january. We found out about her allergy at 12 months. She never had an actual egg, just exposure through breast milk and pasta. Her only egg reactions that I know of were from pasta - screaming and scraping her tongue with her fingers (I think her mouth was burning), also hives.
We avoided all eggs, even in baked goods until today! She had spaghetti (Barilla pasta) and chocolate chip cookies made with eggs tonight. She was in heaven and it was so fun. I hope I'm not being too excited, I'm sorry some of you are still dealing with this and I really do not mean to be insensitive...
It is really great to be able to add something else to her diet though! I'm going to have fun making new foods for her.
Edited to add RAST - I think the first one was around 4 or so and the second one around 1-2. This time it was zero. Her first skin test was I think at 2 or 3+, this time no reaction.

That is so exciting! Dd passed her egg challenge at age 9. I had forgotten how good mayonaisse tasted until I was able to have it again. Just wondering, where have you found milk free chocolate chips? I have searched and searched and never been able to find any.
