Welcome to ABC's and Allergies! I hope you will enjoy some of my thoughts and experiences with allergies and homeschooling, and try out some of my recipes. I have found a new passion for creating excellent meals that are free of Mandie's allergens, and are so yummy no one realizes they are "allergen free". I am also passionate about raising awareness of food allergies, and raising money for FAAN.

  1. We are going apple picking in the next few weeks in the N.GA Mtns. I will have to try this recipe. I'm gonna have a bunch of apples. I am planning on making Apple Squares. I've never made applesauce --- I hope it isnt too difficult.
