Safe Breads

Baguettes
Ah, the smell of a warm baguette. The texture, the taste. Maybe a little piece of gouda or asiago or Maytag blue to go with it. My family loves to eat bread and cheese. We'll eat bread with olive oil too. I suppose it is the bread we love most.

Since the peanut allergy diagnosis, we haven't had any bread like that. I can't seem to find a baguette made in a peanut-free, nut-free facility. This morning before preschool, my son said "You know what kind of bread I really like?" and pointed out the baguettes at the supermarket. I think it's time for me to either learn how to bake my own baguettes or find a safe place to buy some. 

If you have a great baguette recipe or tips, or maybe even know where some completely peanut-free, nut-free baguettes are made, please send in a comment! 

Peanut-free, nut-free, egg-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, gluten-free breads

This where I feel foolish for feeling frustrated about not finding a specific type of bread, while friends struggle to find any safe bread of any kind. It's a reminder of how good things are, and how everything is relative. A reader is looking for recommendations on breads and cereals for a one-year old child allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, dairy, wheat/gluten. The only brand of bread that comes to mind is ENER-G. Are there others you'd recommend? Or is the only other option to bake your own bread? I know many people do bake their own. How about cereals? Which ones do your kids like best (for the above listed allergies)? Thank you for any advice or tips!
