She now has expanded her ingredients list and is no longer just whipping up allergen friendly food but still is sticking with the fun! Cara is also the co-host of the FriChats podcast with her gal pal Marly of the websites Namely Marly and Chopped Academy). When she isn’t making animal shapes from pancakes, she can be found at her other website Happy Whole Mom.
