Hi there! I’m Kelly Roenicke – allergy friendly author, recipe developer, and photographer behind The Pretty Bee.
When my second son was born, I was thrust into the world of food intolerances. As a breastfeeding mother battling my son’s reflux, I was confused and discouraged as I removed food after food from my diet in an effort to improve his symptoms. Once I became comfortable with those intolerances, my son was diagnosed with life threatening allergies to tree nuts, peanuts, and sesame seeds.
I refused to give up the joy of cooking delicious meals for my family. Although my ingredient list was now limited, I knew that I could create allergy friendly recipes that my family and friends would love.
I spent hours reworking our favorite recipes until I had allergy safe versions that were just as good, or better, than their original versions. I have over 15 years of experience cooking and creating allergy friendly recipes.
I love spending time in the kitchen now. My feelings of being lost and overwhelmed have been replaced with joy and confidence. I believe that you can enjoy amazing, easy recipes, even when cooking for multiple food allergies.
Can you relate to what I went through? Have you lost your love of cooking and baking due to food allergies?
Reading labels, shopping for safe brands, and finding delicious recipes can be a full time job.
Do you wish you could find simple, delicious, allergy friendly recipes that your family would rave about? Well, you’re in the right place!

“This is the most delicious, easiest meal I’ve ever made. My family was raving and keep begging for it. And I’m happy to oblige, because it takes just a few inexpensive ingredients being dumped into a pot and I’m on with my day! I’m going to make it again tonight and get double ingredients for next week!” – Mel
“These are perfection. I made these twice in 3 days. Some days you just need some cookie dough!! And these keep perfectly in the freezer. I love this easy, simple recipe.” – Shanna
“Today I made your vegan waffles for the first time. They were so easy to make and my son (with the allergies) was so excited to finally be able to eat waffles! Thank you so very much! I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes.” – Kristin
