Trick and Treats – Allergy-Friendly Candy

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. While my sweet tooth is as strong as the next person’s, for me Halloween has always been as much about the costumes as the candy. My most memorable childhood ensembles were hand-sewn variations of Raggedy Ann, Cinderella and the wicked witch. After I grew up but before I had my own children, I used to sew elaborate costumes for my niece and nephews. I’m still haunted by the recollection of working until the wee hours of Halloween morning, finishing up the see-through eyes on Casper the Friendly Ghost.

Homemade Dairy Free Yogurt

My husband, a man who dearly loves dairy, recently developed a milk intolerance. His sensitive stomach reacts to lactose, forcing him to cut back on his favorite foods—milk, cream, cheese, and most difficult for him, yogurt at breakfast. He didn’t give them up without a fight. Attempting to satisfy his dairy craving one day, he guzzled down some lactose-free milk and happily discovered he could drink it without the usual ill effects. Good news for him, which got me to wondering: Could I make a tasty yogurt from lactose-free milk? What about coconut milk, goat's milk or soy milk? With my husband’s encouragement, I decided to give it a try. The results were delicious. The fresh yogurt I produced was on par with flavorful Greek and Turkish varieties. My better half was delighted.
