Cooking Traditional Foods Give Away

One of my dear friends, KerryAnn Foster has a great business. She develops recipes for people that have casien and gluten allergies that also want to eat nutritionally dense traditional foods. Recently she created a recipe for yogurt made with coconut milk. This is a wonderful treat since coconut yogurt is so expensive and I do not care for soy yogurt at all. This week she posted a recipe for donuts made without wheat flour. And they are nutritionally dense to boot!  What more can you ask for? Being able to make foods your kids want without having to subject them to all the nasty chemicals, preservatives and colorings sounds good to me. My son can't have those things so being able to give him treats like that really make his day. Today, she posted that she is going to give away a year's worth of her weekly recipe mailers. That would be a dream come true for me to have all those recipes to look forward to since I love to cook. She tests each and every one until she gets them just right, so you know they are good. Each menu mailer has five dinners (including side dishes), one breakfast, one soup and one dessert every week.  Just the time savings in menu planning makes it worth its weight in gold!  It contains a full menu, shopping list, a preparation plan, and serving suggestions for each meal.  Tips and information are included in every mailer as well. So head on over to her blog and check out this awesome contest.
