The Food Allergy Mama, Kelly Rudnicki, is brilliant. Her legions of followers, including Martha Stewart, agree. Rudnicki just released her third cookbook filled with delicious recipes for kids who have allergies. She’s giving away two copies of The Food Allergy Mama’s Easy, Fast, Family Meals on her website right now, so head over there after you read this post. But don’t click away from me just yet. Rudnicki shares one of her most popular recipes below. (See the photo. Yum.) And if you order The Food Allergy Mama’s Easy, Fast, Family Meals from her website, she’ll send you a signed copy. Her new child- and mom-approved dishes include breakfast burritos and oatmeal fudge bars.
She’s recipe prolific, and I asked her where she gets her inspiration. “From my readers! For years I was asked to develop a delicious allergy-friendly macaroni and cheese, a classic childhood meal,” she says. “So I went to work in the kitchen to make a mac and cheese that kids could have, and that I would actually eat.” She also works diligently for her son, John, the only one of her five kids with food allergies. “He will look around stores, restaurants or even his own lunchroom at school, and ask if I can make a similar thing for him,” Rudnicki says. “I developed my corn dog recipe after he came home bummed one day when all the kids at his lunch table ordered corn dogs and said how awesome they were. Little conversations like that fuel the creative fire in me to make new recipes all the time.”
Check out her book. Read her super popular blog. And enjoy this Rudnicki recipe that’s guaranteed to please the whole family:
DAIRY- AND EGG-FREE SPAGHETTI AND TURKEY MEATBALLS
“Spaghetti and meatballs are a classic kids’ dinner. It’s also one of my most requested recipes,” Rudnicki writes. “I can get this dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes, yet it tastes like it simmered all day long. The best part is leftover sauce and meatballs can be turned into a fantastic Turkey Meatball Sandwich.”
