Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
Recipe for soy, gluten, dairy and egg free fruit tarts
I posted this with photos on my blog ( but wanted to post it here in case anyone with allergies or on the elimination diet wanted to try it. It was yummy! You'd have to choose the fruits that you could have, but you could use whatever fruit you like and even a different filling if you wanted. Ingredients: 1 cup non-soy, non-dairy margarine 2 cups fructose or sugar 1 cup rice flour 1 cup tapioca flour 1 tsp. xanthan gum 2 tbsp. lemon zest 2 tsp. lemon extract 2 tsp. poppy seeds Cream sugar and butter. Mix dry ingredients and add a little at a time until your dough is a cookie dough consistency. Add lemon zest, extract, and poppy seeds and blend well. Spread into 2 tart pans, pressing into the pans so that there is a raised rim around the tarts, and cook at 350 for 20 minutes or until set and slightly brown around the edges. Take out of oven, let cool. Topping: 1 can lemon filling or one jar lemon curd (check for allergens) Fresh fruit: I used strawberries, gold kiwi, kiwi, mango, blueberries and kumquats. Whipped cream (optional) Put it Together: Once the tart is cool, spread the lemon curd or topping over each shell. Arrange the fruit in a pattern around each tart. I started about an inch in from the edge of the tarts with mango slices, and then arranged the rest in concentric rows. Thinly sliced kumquats really added to this recipe...they are sweet/sour and complement the lemon flavor.

PICTURE: Aubrey in her cute cat outfit. If you look you can see how her right foot turns in. She walks that way as well. It is not as exaggerated in the morning's but gets worse in the evenings. This was after her nap.
Where do you find nondairy non soy margarine. All the ones I have found that are even soy (since Aubrey can have soy) have traces of dairy. What brand do you buy???

GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS).

Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Thanks! If only I had seen this before I tried my chocolate egg-free cake recipe and accidentally added foru times the amount of baking soda that was called for. My husband and I are gagging over here. I can't wait to try this!!!
Check with your
doctor first!
