Friday, February 8, 2008 that?!

Since finding out that my little Sam is allergic to wheat, soy and eggs, I've taken it as a personal challenge to see just how many different foods I'm able to create from scratch without using these 3 ingredients. Most people would feel pretty intimidated by such major dietary limitations ( wheat, soy and eggs seem to be in EVERYTHING!!!), but I say: BRING IT!!!

Today in my kitchen / laboratory, I actually made egg-free, soy-free mayonnaise! And it actually tastes pretty good! My oldest daughter, Taylor, was observing this little culinary experiment with a worried look on her face (she was convinced that I was going to blow up my Kitchen Aid mixer) and asked " What..... is that?!" I proudly replied, " It's mayonnaise! But I think I'm gonna call it Jennaisse!" Not totally convinced, I had her try a little taste and asked her what she thought. "It tastes like cheese." Everybody's a critic.

But on the brightside, we can both agree that the taste does resemble food of somekind. I just don't think it's any kind of food Taylor will be subjecting herself to any time soon.
