Mazel Tov. Our food allergic twins just became bar mitzvah this shabbos.
We had a beautiful nutfree home-baked kiddush in their honor. If you're contemplating making a nutfree simcha rest-assured, it's mangeable!!! Read labels carefully and choose recipes that omit nuts or even recipes where nuts are an optional ingredient. Great substitutions are sprinkles, glazes, icings, colored sugar crystals, edible markers,chocolate chips, and crumb toppings. Be creative. Use cookie cutters, dip pretzels, utilize puff pastry, make rum balls. Artistic flair goes a long way. Challenge your imagination. My friend Chanie (another food allergy Mom) made these gorgeous tefillin & torah cookies.
