HOMEMADE Coconut Milk Yogurt

Funky Food writes that she has successfully made homemade coconut milk yogurt at home!  I LOVE coconut milk yogurt, but WOWSERS (!), it is expensive!
So Delicious

Check out her starting recipe (originally made with milk, but shows an update at the end of the post) and be sure to read the comments for further suggestions regarding thickening of the yogurt.  Then you should check out her updated recipe specific to the coconut milk.

Have you successfully made dairy free yogurt at home?  Add your link to the comments, please! Thanks!

Combating Allergies

Allergies Have You in a Fog? is a great article of 25 tips to help combat allergies (not just food allergies). The author uses a myriad of links to bloggers, commercial products, and medical professionals.

While some of it isn't new information to those of us that have dealt with allergies for a long time, it's certainly a good starting place for those being thrown into the allergy world against their will. :) I know there were a few articles I tagged to check out and we've been dealing with environmental allergies for at least 5 years now - thinking we've tried everything. (And if I were still a food allergy cook, there were a few new-to-me blogs that look like a fun place to check out.) I'm always thankful for new ideas, aren't you? :)

While the author of this article did contact me and asked me to read it, I was not compensated in any way for this review. These are my honest, unbiased opinions and thoughts. Thankyouverymuch and have a nice day. :)

Ask the Readers: Chocolate Fountain

I received this email from a reader and I don't have any experience with this, so I thought I'd throw the question out there to my readers. Please offer any suggestions in the comment section. Thanks so much!


Have you ever come across an allergy-friendly recipe for a chocolate fountain or chocolate fondue? I have a 'turning-fifteen" year old daughter who is allergic to dairy, egg, and peanuts who really wants a chocolate something for her birthday party. If you have any ideas, I would really like to hear them.
