Hello and welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW).
  AFW is a weekly blog hop where folks can share their allergy-free cuisine, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and connect with others living or caring for someone with food allergies.

This is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself and six other fabulous allergy-free bloggers.  Your weekly submissions will be shared on all 7 blogs!  Check back each week for reader favorites and recipe highlights.

    Thanks for hosting! I don't have any allergen-free recipes, but I am learning to make them. Our family isn't 100% allergen free. It's a little hard when we have everyone allergic to the same things, but not everyone has the same number of food allergies. I also deal with crohn's and have eliminate sugars and yeast.

    • Hi There Victoria,

      So glad you are here. You're sure to find some fabulous recipes and LOTS of support. It takes time, small steps and behavior changes. I'm sorry to hear you have CD. I do hope you're well, and healing. Please let me know if you have any questions. :-)
