So what's a girl to do but get in the kitchen and create! These Chocolate Covered Strawberry Energy Bites are Mr. T and Mr. F approved. They are also super easy and quick to make, … [Read more...]
Kids in the Kitchen at Everyday Graces
Kids in the kitchen is a special feature here where we share our kid friendly, allergy friendly, super yummy recipes with you. We use real utensils and employ many Montessori methods in our kitchen so the boys are learning to navigate the kitchen with the respect and delight that kitchen adventures warrant.
Are you an allergy mom? This letter is here to help you spread awareness to friends and family who might not understand.

If you have a recipe request or idea, please email us at Hello@LaraMolettiere.com and we will see what we can do!
Oh my stars! I have a 5 year old! How on earth that happened is beyond me. But it did. And he loves Olaf, that sweet and goofy snowman from Disney's Frozen. (He was Olaf and Mr. F was Sven for our church's fall festival) And I'll be honest, I looked for weeks for Olaf party supplies that were already made. And there are very few, and most are still … [Read more...]
Having a child with multiple food allergies presents challenges. And a lot of them depending on the food the child is allergic to. If it isn't your child, you may well think of them as problems. It is my child, so I choose to think of them as challenges and adventures into unknown culinary waters. Mr. T is gluten-sensitive, allergic to yellow … [Read more...]
Dirt cups are a delightful part of childhood desserts! But with all the allergies and sensitivities Mr. T and Mr. F have, it's difficult to find ways to make my favorite childhood treats. Thanks to Annie's Homegrown, we are able to make and enjoy these delightful Mini Dirt Cups! #spon: I'm required to disclose a relationship between our site and … [Read more...]
I love Key Lime pie! I also love how I feel when I'm eating healthy and not filling my system with junk and sugar. What's a girl to do? I came up with this recipe and it's awesome! Even so, you'll probably want to share some since eating 8 individual pies by yourself is a little excessive. If you decide to try freezing them, let me know how they … [Read more...]
We love tea time! What better way to celebrate our Valentine's Day than by sharing one of our favorite scone recipes with you? These are really fun and if you have a chopping utensil your preschooler like to use (we love the wavy chopper) then have them help chop butter and fruit! We are also working on tracing our Awana modified verse: 1 John … [Read more...]
Part of Mr. Ts treatment plan currently is a gluten, dairy and soy free diet. It's expensive and tough, and Mr. T has had some trouble adjusting. So have I. But thankfully I have friends and Pinterest. I have a seriously awesome Gluten Free board. Check it out! The above picture is of a great dessert I modified off a Pinterest recipe. It's … [Read more...]
Hello! Who wants dessert for breakfast? I thought so! This was a delicious treat and still mostly healthy :) Mr. T approves! What better way to begin a brisk fall morning than with a steaming bowl of hearty organic oatmeal that tastes like pumpkin pie? It's simple, quick, and lots of fun for budding chefs! Adding the pumpkin into the soaked … [Read more...]
We like easy meals at this point. The morning is difficult for me to get moving at this point since I'm uncomfortable enough that I can't sleep well, and I don't like feeding my family processed cold cereal (the boys don't mind, but I do!) or a banana every single day. Enter muffins! Maybe even some mini-fritattas this week if I get the extras … [Read more...]
Mr. T was delighted when I let him bring his little chair into the kitchen to help mommy make spaghetti sauce since mommy didn't let him help make scrambled eggs for lunch. :) I don't trust him around our 2 burner griddle just yet. But we put in the olive oil, spinach, salt and pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning and stewed tomatoes and then turned … [Read more...]
