Please read, before reading

I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

Not Quite Dairy-free Cream Cheese Frosting recipe

My daughter is lucky.  For whatever reason, regular Cool Whip does not cause any allergic reaction for her.  Yay!  Right?  So, when I was reading this blog entry on Cooking During Stolen Moments last week (scroll to the bottom, but read them all) I was anxious to try the frosting/topping.  I substituted Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese and it tastes excellent.  Even to those of us who are dairy eaters.  If you are not lucky enough to use regular Cool Whip, I found this excellent resource on Go Dairy Free that gives a few products to try and some at home recipes (be sure to scroll to the bottom to see whipped topping suggestions).

Not Quite Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting
3 oz Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Cool Whip (or use on of these dairy-free options -- scroll to bottom)

1. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.
2. Fold in Cool Whip.

**This is an excellent topping for berries.  I'm going to use it on top of brownies and add strawberries on top.**
