Do you remember the kids in school that were lucky enough to be born in the summer so they got to have pool parties and outdoor adventures? Well I wasn’t one of those kids. My birthday is in February and although I grew up in the South, it was still too cold for any extended amount of time outdoors. That said, my boys are those lucky kids! But being born in the summer does have its disadvantages. You miss out on the classroom party that all the winter kids get. I know… I would much rather have the pool party in the summer too!
To make a really long story short, my youngest is celebrating his “half birthday” in preschool this week. Yep, half birthday. Sooooo, I’m on the hunt for some yummy allergy free goodies (my son suffers from a severe dairy allergy, plus he can’t have nuts for now either) to make. I may go with the good ole cupcake, but we’ll see. In the meantime, these are a few of the fabulous things I found!

- Nut-free (could be dairy-free with the right chocolate) Pretzel-Toffee Bark idea from Big Girls, Small Kitchen posted by The Naptime Chef for Babble’s Family Kitchen
- Dairy-free buckeyes posted by Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom (she offers advice on making these nut-free as well)
As always, I hope you’re inspired!
