This is my sweet little boy!

There are so many wonderful resources out there with recipes modified for multiple food allergies, but I still usually have to make some modifications to make them safe for my son. His current food allergy list include peanuts, wheat, egg, dairy, potatoes, bananas, pumpkin, peas, green beans, avocados, flax and strawberry. He is also sensitive to corn but can tolerate some small amounts of corn derived ingredients, such as corn alcohol (found in gluten free extracts such as vanilla), small amounts of dextrose. He can not handle corn starch or corn protein. I used flaxseed as an egg replacement for a while, but it became clear that it does cause a reaction.  We haven't dared to try tree nuts, fish, other berries or citrus, and at this point aren't trialling any new foods and are sticking with our known list of safe foods.

(Updated 6/15/2010)

Safe foods include:
Grains: rice, oats, barley, buckwheat, teff
Fruit: apples, pears, cherries, peaches, grapes, coconut
Vegetables: sweet potatoes(?), carrots, pinto beans, SOY
Baking ingredients: guar gum, arrowroot starch, tapioca flour, yeast
Seasoning: black pepper, cinnamon

Some of the recipes I will post are gluten free or can be easily modified to become gluten free, but gluten is ok for my little guy.
