A Thanksgiving Treat

Well, Thanksgiving was a couple days ago, and it definitely did not disappoint. The food was absolutely amazing, and I was definitely reminded of why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It feels great to be able to eat whatever I want, regardless of whether or not I have a nut allergy. By far my favorite food of the night was the dessert, which was Fudgy Wudgies! If you don’t know what those are, imagine a glorious combination of chocolate fudge, cheesecake, and brownie. Even that can’t begin to describe how delicious it was.

I wanted to share the deliciousness of the Fudgy Wudgies with my readers, so I’m posting the recipe below. Apparently, it’s like a really old family recipe that was adapted to be nut safe by leaving out the walnuts, which is pretty cool.

Fudgy Wudgies

Ingredients for 36 servings:

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1 square (1 oz.) unsweetened chocolate

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. vanilla

Spread in a greased or floured 9 x 13 pan. Combine filling ingredients. Spread over chocolate mixture in pan. Bake 25-35 minutes (until a toothpick poked in can come out clean). Sprinkle marshmallows and bake for 2 more minutes. Immediately prepare frosting- Combine butter, chocolate, cream cheese, and milk in a saucepan. Heat over low heat until chocolate melts. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Pour over marshmallows. Swirl together. Cool and cut into 36 bars.

It’s absolutely fantastic, especially when it is just a little bit cold.

I know it looks like a lot of work, but trust me, this is the best dessert I have ever had. It is one of the main reasons why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. If you have any questions about the recipe, feel free to ask me and I will answer to the best of my ability.

Finally, as with any recipe, double check with your allergist to make sure the ingredients are safe. Enjoy!

Until next time!



Hello readers!

It seems like just yesterday that I went trick-or-treating on Halloween night, and now my giant bag of candy is much less giant, and Thanksgiving has seemed to have snuck up on me! Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday of all time. In many ways, I love it even more than Christmas or my birthday. Only on Thanksgiving can I have five different pies, turkey, a chocolate chip muffin, and mashed potatoes all on one plate. As an adamant foodie, this is kind of like a dream day for me.


I like to think my Thanksgiving is kind of unique because my aunt hosts two meals. We have one breakfast meal, complete with chocolate chip muffins, crepes, bacon, eggs, sausage, and juice. It is an amazing breakfast, and I actually love it more than the dinner part. The dinner meal is even bigger, with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and bread sticks. And for dessert, a bunch of different pies and ice cream.

These are the biggest meals I have all year, and they are completely safe! My aunt is always super good with my allergy, and makes sure I’m safe every year.

These next couple of days, I’ll be writing all about the food I eat at my Thanksgiving dinner, and I’ll even provide some nut-free recipes from the food that will be eaten.

Also, if any of you readers want to share your Thanksgiving experiences, feel free to comment below, or on Facebook, and you might be included in the next post.

Until next time!


A scary good time

Halloween was the best time ever! I had a blast! I’m not gonna lie, with this being the first time I trick-or-treated in about ten years, I was a little bit nervous, but I had an absolute blast! My sister and I went around the entire subdivision, and by the time we were done, our bags were completely stuffed! Meanwhile, my mom stayed at home to pass out candy, but she also had food free options, so she put a teal pumpkin sign up on the door.



Once my sister and I got home, my mom set up a “store,” where she traded my candy for her allergy safe candy. She had a whole bunch of cool candy that I could trade for.


All in all, I’m super glad I did it. I was nervous at first, but it turned out to be a really fun experience. Not to mention all the candy I have now!

Until next time!
