A very merry unbirthday to me!
The best and the worst thing about food allergies is cooking almost everything from scratch.
Talk about a mixed blessing. On one hand some items are much more inexpensive when made from scratch, but others can add up to be more expensive. Of course, the opportunity to control the healthful quality of food is much higher. Let's face it though -- cake isn't really a health food kind of thing. However, some days it is just what is called for.
