Egg-free, Gluten-free Almond Cake

My sweet baby is allergic to chicken eggs. We discovered this when she was around nine months old and had an unpleasant reaction when I fed her some hard-cooked egg yolk (I’ll spare you the details). Since then, we have mostly avoided any foods that

Green Eggs and Ham

It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and while I’m not Irish, it’s fun to wear green, make four-leaf clover decorations for the house, and eat lots of green food. Last year, I saw this post for green eggs and tried it out on my then-four-year-old. She actually really
