Roasted Garlic Lemon Chicken with Potatoes & Sprouts (Top 8 Free)


Easter is approaching fast, so do you know what you’ll be serving for the family dinner?  We’ll be visiting family, but if I were cooking this dish is what I’d make.  Roasted chicken is one of my favorite meals, but I put a spin on this dish by adding garlic and lemon.  Throw in some potatoes and Brussel sprouts (or broccoli if you’re not a sprouts fan), and you’ve got a complete meal in one dish.  The best thing, is that it’s Top 8 Free, and you can use regular butter if you’re not dairy allergic.  If you’re avoiding soy, make sure that your dairy-free margarine is soy free as well.  I use Earth Balance dairy & soy free spread.  I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.  If you’d like to serve bread with this meal, try my homemade bread-it’s easier than you’d think and I’m requested to bake it time after time.  Happy Cooking!

Mom Vs. Food Allergy’s New Look!


Just a quick post this morning to show off my new logo!  I’m overly excited about how it turned out.  It’s absolutely perfect, and just the right amount of flair that my site needed.

It is expertly designed by a great friend, Jonathan Davis, owner of Ingensis.  My fellow WordPress bloggers will be interested in Jon’s business that develops Shopp, an e-commerce Plug-in.  Please stop by his site and check it out and see what he’s up to.  Thank you, Jon, for designing the perfect logo!


I’m looking forward to polishing up the site in the future, little by little.  Thank you to all my readers for sticking around, and I am looking forward to exciting things in 2014 here on Mom Vs. Food Allergy!

What do you think, how’s the new logo?
