  1. I have just discovered your blog and seriously I’m feeling hopeful for the first time. Two days ago I discovered my 9 yr old daughter is severely allergic to gluten, dairy, eggs and a host of other things. I have been feeling completely overwhelmed and confused about where to start. And wondering what’s left to feed her?? But now I can’t wait to get started on your delicious recipes! There are so many new ingredients that I will need to use now so I was wondering, would you have a ‘beginners’ shopping list of essential pantry items on your site? Thank you for all you are doing, it’s so much more than a cooking blog to those of us who are starting out on this journey – it’s a life-line. God bless.

    • Hi Shawna!!
      This comment gave me misty eyes. I TOTALLY remember being where you are at when I first was diagnosed with a new diet. It can make you feel very alone and helpless and it’s the main reason I started this blog. So it makes me so happy that it is providing a lifeline for those who really need it. Let me know if you ever need anything, please! I am just an email away and will do my best to help make this an easier process for you and your family πŸ™‚ Much love, Cara

    Oh my gosh you replied soo fast! And I did not, I’m sorry! I have no idea where to buy flaxseed. What stores do you usually go to? And thanks for the info, it is helping a lot!

    • hehe. I’m quick like that πŸ™‚ You can find flaxseed at WholeFoods, Trader Joe’s (if one is near you), or even the regular ol’ grocery store. Most places are extending their natural foods selection. If you can only find flaxseed in whole form and not meal form, you can always just ground it at home with a spice or coffee grinder. Hopefully that helps! Let me know, Kassy (fingers crossed for you…)

    Hi Cara! I stumbled upon your blog and I totally find you so inspiring. I am slowly transitioning into veganism and I am having trouble finding vegan ingredients mainly for baking. Do you have any suggestions to shop?

    • Hi Kassy, thank you so much for such a sweet comment!! Glad you found your way over here…
      What exactly are you having difficulties finding? Just off the top of my head, I would say some essentials for vegan baking are the following: Nut or soy milk, Silken Tofu, apple cider vinegar, baking soda, flaxseed meal to name a few. I’m thinking these should be fairly easy to find anywhere these days. Let me know if you were looking for something specific!
      If you check out my Guide to Vegan/GF baking, I give some tips for substituting eggs, dairy, etc for vegan baking. Hope this helps! Ask away if you need to πŸ™‚ xo

  6. You site is so awesome. Please do tell. How did you get your site this way with the categories all on one page (above), and how did you get a Facebook LIKE button embedded on this site. Please help! πŸ™‚ You can check out my site. I have 701 subscribers altogether but I desire to jazz up my site a little to increase readership. Your guidance would be magnificent. Thanks, Res

    • I created the recipe page myself with blood, sweat and tears πŸ™‚ You can add FB, just go to widgets, I believe and drag the FB like button over… xo Good luck!
