5 Allergy-Free Desserts for Valentine’s Day PLUS a Sweet Giveaway!

Easy Allergy Free Valentine's Day Desserts

My husband and I rarely go out on February 14th. Restaurants are usually overcrowded and overpriced that night. Plus, the kitchens are often busier than usual, so the food never seems to taste quite as good as if you were to visit the restaurants on a quieter night.

Instead, we usually make a fun dinner at home with the kids and include some of our favorite treats.

This year we are letting the kids pick the menu. After hearing their choices though, I think it may have been cheaper to go out, after all. ;)

Their exact request this year: 1. Steamed Crab legs; 2. Daddy’s “Special Filet Mignon Steaks”; 3. “Something yummy” for dessert.

In the past, we have had a tradition of making some of my own favorite dessert recipes for Valentine’s Day. Some of our favorite allergy-free desserts are below:

This time though, we are going to be making a Cream Pie! The Pie Crust will be coming from my absolute new favorite cookbook (which also happens to have a lot to do with my Sweet Giveaway).

The recipes are incredible. A lot of them remind me of my own childhood and the very recipes that my mom used to make. I have made a good portion of the recipes from the book so far and the biggest critics in the house (who, by size, ironically also happen to take up the least amount of space), have seriously fallen in love with all of them.

    What drew me to this cookbook is the fact that it is not only gluten free recipes, but egg free as well. Not always easy to find! Hope I win!!!!!

    Shared on FB! Would love some new recipes that I can make for our girls. Tough eliminating so many things from our diet and not feeling deprived. I want to instill in them the simple truth that food can be wonderfully yummy and healthy at the same time…and that we can still have DESSERT :-)

    Would love to win this cookbook to give to my son who follows a GFCF diet but gets tempted to have “normal” food sometimes–with these recipes he can have both!

    My 8 yr old son was recently allergy tested & his worst allergies are all the things he loves…Egg, Milk, Cheese & Wheat! So, needless to say, it has been a HUGE transition for him & our family of 4. I am constantly researching online to find replacements for recipes he loves or how to even omit an ingredient & substitute with another!! Thankfully, he is not a fussy eater but he does miss sinfully sweet desserts & his eggs in the morning. This cookbook would be incredibly helpful for me to cook fun & new recipes for him! I would only have to open up the cookbook in my very own kitchen to find a new recipe, instead of having to sit at my computer, racking my brain of what to cook for him next?! This cookbook would be a LIFESAVER & make my son incredibly HAPPY!!
