Who says a birthday party free of dairy, eggs and nuts has to be boring and yucky!? This post will be picture heavy, but ALL of the food from the party was dairy, egg and nut free!
Let’s start off with the Menu for Caleb’s 3rd Birthday Teddy Bear Picnic!
Sunbutter and homemade peach jam sandwiches
Chicken Salad Sandwiches (made with vegenaise instead of mayo. Have you tried this stuff? SO yummy! My husband prefers it over regular mayonnaise!)
Vegetables and “Sour Cream and Onion” Dip
Fruit with “Cream Cheese” Dip
Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods
Lolly Pop tree
Rice Krispie Treats
Candy Coated marshmallows
CUPCAKES! (this was all my son wanted for his birthday!)
As you can see, we had a lot of great food. Here are some quick recipes for the dips and treats that we had this weekend. (I told you last week that this week’s post would make up for the lack of a recipe!) I hope you enjoy this as much as we all did!
1 bag of marshmallows (we used Kraft jumbo marshmallows)
1 can of Pillsbury White Icing (you can feel free to change the color or use melted “safe” chocolate)
Safe Sprinkles or colored sugar
Put one marshmallow on each skewer. Use a knife to spread icing on half of the marshmallow. Shake sprinkles on to the marshmallow. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
“Cream Cheese” Fruit Dip
1 container of Tofutti Cream Cheese
Mix. yeah, sorry. No measurements! 🙂 Just do this one by taste and you can’t go wrong. This was such a yummy fruit dip. The husband even liked it! It always gets extra points when he goes back for more!
“Sour Cream” Onion Vegetable Dip
1 container of Tofutti Sour Cream
1 package of Onion Dip Mix (Be sure to carefully read labels! I got the Kroger brand. Do not get soup mix, as all of them had milk or were processed in a facility with milk. The “chip dip” was our safe dip!)
Mix according to directions.
These cupcakes were made with the Cherrybrook Kitchen Cake mix. Dairy, Egg and Nut Free! Everyone loved them and had no clue they were missing milk and eggs! (and now the picture has my mouth watering for more!)
It is so hard to believe that three years ago today Caleb entered this world and changed my life for the better. I love you, my sweet boy. Happy Birthday to the best “Little Buddy” a mommy could ever ask for. You make me so proud each and every day!
