I'm glad Trista realized that we all need festive, special meals once in awhile--whether or not we have allergies or other food restrictions! The act of cooking and eating should be more than just a means of filling our stomachs! It can also be a way to exercise our creativity and to give us social/emotional pleasure. Thank you for sharing your story! :)
This is a good story with a great title!
Your title and opening paragraphs were really good. Kept me reading.

I winced at the whole grain spinach brownie. I wouldn't have eaten that, but the whole wheat sweet potato gnocchi doesn't sound bad.

Was Trista a little obsessed? Known food allergies are one thing, but this seemed to be controlling her entire family. Thanks for sharing a story with a good lesson.
