Who knew Pita Chips could be this preeti 

These are so preeti cute and yummy!!!! These are perfect for an instant appetizer when your girlfriends says they are coming over and you’ve got to feed them because friends that eat together stay together….

So I thought I’d try this because it seems preeti easy to put together. I had avocado and spinach dip at home so I tried it. It was delishh.  I used the tositos spinach dip and added the grape tomatoes, omg it was yummy, so for the other one, I made up a mix using avocado, diced cucumber, diced celery and sour cream, also added a dash of black pepper, I didn’t have salmon so we ate it away….yum and to top it off, it’s nutritious. Stacey Baked Pita Chips were the awesome base to this tasty treat. Hmmmm yum was the feedback from friends.

Try it and let me know which is your favorite!!!

Just because I have a kid with Food Allergies 

My son was born with a food allergy which we discovered at 6 weeks old when he had a rash that refused to go away, he would wheez every time he was nursed – long story short, we had bloodwork done to identify what he was allergic to, turned out to be allergies to cow’s milk and eggs. The doctors expected that he would outgrow it by one, he’s almost 8 now and he’s still very much allergic to cow’s milk and eggs. As a mom, I had to come up with different alternatives to make sure he enjoys every meal and snacks a kid loves – pizza, nuggets, cookies, bread, candy. Making Halloween treats fun and allergy friendly for the kids is an adventure – favorite allergy friendly treats my son loves are skittles, twizzlers, smarties, temporary fun tattoos.

Favorite brands: Daiya, Tyson makes chicken nuggets that are dairy free – I say that’s a win!!!
