My name is Nicole Ciuppa, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and food allergy advocate, and thank you for stopping by my blog. I was diagnosed with multiple anaphylactic food allergies since infancy and grew up learning to adapt and change my diet without getting rid of the amazing flavors or joy that food brings. I am currently allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, mustard seed, sesame seed, poppy seed, and lamb.
I aim to show you, through my recipe posts, that you should play with your food and discover new ways to cook and bake. I cannot begin to describe the way I feel while cooking in my kitchen. It's smiling ear to ear when I see how high my pancakes are rising. It's dancing around my kitchen because the cookie dough tastes that good. It's singing through a wooden spoon when mixing a fresh pot of sauce. It's priceless conversations with my mom all while chopping up the dinner vegetables. It's all of these moments surrounding food that creates my passion for food and nutrition.
As I began to create my own recipes and adaptations to my family's treasured ones, I decided to put them online to share them with you. I have created this space for those of you with food allergies or caring for someone with food allergies to find tasteful recipes that can easily be adjusted to meet your needs. Settle in and make yourself at home. Your next allergy friendly creation is a couple clicks away.
