    At least we have Bread Machines!
    AllerDine posted:
    I have two with young boys with allergies to Sesame and nuts. As with us, your dairy, egg and wheat allergies are going to make bakeries off limits. There are very few, if any bakeries that I would consider with your list of allergens. The good news is baking and cooking at home can be an activity with the kids. Baking safe foods and especially bread is not as time intensive as it once was. We have two bread machines and they have truly been amazing appliances. The bread is fresh, no preservatives and allergen free. You are not alone with your allergies. Every day is another day you have to plan for each meal, each birthday party and each day at school or camp. It's not an easy road, while trying to have your child live a "normal" life. Hopefully the bread machine tip will at least give you some relief and solutions to the very limited menu you have.

    I love my bread machine! WIth one child with milk allergy and another with peanut, it is really really hard to find bread at the store that I can feed them both. And what I do find is pretty junky. My bread machine never leaves the counter these days!

    Thanks for a good tip.
