Corn Dog Muffins

During this busy busy time as we prepare for Thanksgiving and/or the holiday season it is invaluable to have an arsenal of quick and easy recipes at your disposal. This is one of those recipes. Double the recipe, pop one batch in gallon baggies and freeze ’em for later lunches or quick little dinners. Traveling for the holidays? Tadaa! Bring that baggie with you and Corn Dog Muffins to the rescue!

They’re cute as a button but I was a dingbat and didn’t snap a picture of them quickly enough before they were consumed…..er….inhaled…

Enjoy guys!


Eating Out


Here is an updated version of a post I published last September that may be helpful to you.

When you’re dealing with several or even one food allergy, eating in a restaurant is a daunting task.

Cross contamination is a BIG issue. It’s so easy to go from one food to another and most people don’t even think about it. I know I didn’t before food allergies. People go from mashing potatoes to flipping steak and so on and so forth without a second thought. Without washing their hands!!!

If you do plan to eat out, here are a few tips to help make it as safe an experience as possible:

  • Have a Chef’s Card handy and ready to go.
  • Have your medications and action plan with you at all times.
  • Go at a time when they aren’t very busy.
  • Call the restaurant ahead of time and speak with the Manager.
  • Work out a plan with the manager to best accommodate your needs.
  • When you enter the restaurant, speak withย  the Manager, your Server, and the Chef preparing the food in question.
  • Give them your Chef’s Card.
  • Be kind, informative, and firm.
  • Tip well! They’ve done their very best to keep you and yours safe, they deserve a good tip ๐Ÿ™‚
