We aren't avoiding egg so I'm not sure what is safe for your family but almost everything we've tried has been really good.

The only 3 safe nut/peanut desserts are the apple pie, caramel apple pie, rhubard/strawberry pie and creme brulee. We tried the apple pie, it was ok but I think I've spoilt the family with baking from scratch and everyone prefered my own homemade pie..BUT....if a pinch it is a great option for our son (when he's older) to grab and quickly throw into the oven.

The onion rings were great and I loved the butter chicken and canelloni. My favorite had to be finding sesame free bread, it is rosemary pull apart and when you bake it it has a perfect crunchy bakery like crust. MMMMMMMMMMMMM

We've also enjoyed everything we've tried there. With only one exception. Not extremely fond of their cabbage rolls. They aren't bad -- they just aren't as spicy as we like.

thanks! we love onion rings... so I may have to try that.. unfortunately DD can't have rosemary.. she breaks out with it, but DH would LOVE the bread.. we may have to get it for one of those "adult" dinners! Once in awhile, when we really want something that DD can't have, we wait until she goes to bed for our dinner... doesn't happen often.. but once in awhile it's great to eat a few of our favorites that we don't normally have in the house. :)

M&M meats has a breakfast croissant which has no sesame warning. I emailed them asking if it was possible for them to sell these croissants separately (plain with no egg/meat) as I've never seen any croissants safe from sesame. I received a reply today letting me know that they do a yearly re-evaluation of what to sell, to remove, to add, popular requests etc.. My request has been forwarded to marketing to see if others have also requested the same thing. SO.....if anyone else is looking for more sesame free bread products it would be great if you would take 2 min. and contact them. Here's the link to the email page from their website.

BC2007.. that's great to know M&M does a yearly evalution... and will consider your request! we've been looking for egg free hamburger/hotdog buns with no success... so even though sesame isn't a problem for us, V can't have them either... I'm going to have to start looking for a good recipe and make my own I guess.
