Happy Anniversary to Cooking for Cody!

Today is the one year anniversary of Cooking for Cody.  I can't believe it's been a year already!

Thank you all for reading. We hope we have been able to help, educate, provide a good recipe, or even the knowledge that you're not alone.

I love this blog. I love writing it even when it keeps me up late at night. It has been really rewarding! 

Here are some of my favorite posts from the last year:

My first post will always hold a special place in my heart.
Cody has since tested out of a few of the allergies, but the rest holds true.

I just made these last night for Cinco de Mayo. We all love them and they remind me of my sweet grandma.

This is the first thing I tried baking for Cody and I make a loaf every couple of weeks. I was struggling to figure out how to get Cody to eat anything of substance other than vegetables and oat milk. Those just weren't enough. He loved sweet potatoes, so I thought I would try them in a bread. It worked!

Cody and I make a smoothie that we share almost every day. It's one of my favorite parts of the day. These are so good and still one of the only ways I can get Cody to have fruit. If I forget an ingredient Cody reminds me. He's quite a smoothie maker!

This is one if my favorites. I think it tastes really good even if Cody still won't try pasta!

This is another one of the first things I tried. I love that I can make big batches to freeze for an easy breakfast that I can just heat up in the toaster. I don't make the mini-waffles anymore. Cody's appetite outgrew those!

Birthdays are a big deal for kids, but they can also be difficult for kids with food allergies. I was happy to find and successfully make delicious recipes for cake and icing. Now I have something I can always make for Cody on his birthday and if I have to send him with a safe treat to eat when he attends other kids' birthday parties. And I love the icing recipe. I use it all the time.
Cody didn't like the cupcakes then, but he's a big fan now!

And finally my personal favorite, 
He loves them. We love them and I love that I can make them for him.

Cody is doing great and eating healthy, nutritious, well-balanced food. He also gets to have fun treats which I think is also important. He has become a very good little kitchen helper. It makes me happy that he is learning about cooking early and enjoying the process of making our own food since that will be very important for him.

Here's to another year of fun, safe, good food and, of course, the occasional mishap and recipe that turns out awful. I haven't told you all about the gnocchi yet. So bad we ordered take out! :) It happens.
