Hi Everyone! Thanks for entering the Allerbling Food Allergy Awareness Bracelet Giveaway. I’ve picked the three winners. They are…. Betsy, Christine, and ATM! Congratulations!
To watch the drawing, watch the video below. Also, I need your full names and mailing addresses, so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for entering. And if anyone feels like voting for this blog, well, just because, you can still vote today and tomorrow to keep it in the Circle of Moms Top 25 Food Allergy Mom blogs! Just click the badge below and scroll down, because no, I’m not at the top. However, my friend Sarah (Sarah M. Boudreau-Romano, MD) is, and I’m very happy for her! Also, Sarah is writing the foreword to my new cookbook, so you’ll be hearing a lot more from her soon!
Watch me pick the winners, in my highly mathematical way!
A couple months ago, Jodie Hommer, founder of the Spokane Food Allergy Support Network, gave me one of these amazing bracelets for my son Lennon. Lennon absolutely loved it, and had the best time popping in his allergen indicators. One of the coolest things about this bracelet is its flexibility, and I don’t mean just the stretchy rubber band. I mean, that it lets you change the allergen indicators, based upon the ever shifting landscape of food allergies. For example, in the old days, Lennon had life threatening food allergies to dairy and soy. He outgrew both those allergies by the time he was six, but then developed new allergies to tree nuts and shellfish. (there was also a brief period of wheat allergy and supposedly egg). This bracelet lets you customize your medi alert, over and over again. (hopefully one day, your child will just get to wear the cool orange band, with nothing inserted into it!).
Allerbling has kindly offered to give away THREE of these Food Allergy Awareness Bracelets to three of you readers. All you have to do to enter the drawing is vote for this blog by clicking:

Allergy Friendly Friday
Thank you again to whomever it was that nominated this site to the Circle of Moms Top 25 Food Allergy Blogs list. I’d be honored to be in that top 25, so click on the badge above, and just scroll down till you hit my listing and click on vote, if you feel so inclined. Alternately, you can just click here. You can vote for it every day up until November 16th. And as mentioned earlier, with 25 slots to fill, there is room on that list for this blog and most of my food allergy blogger friends (girls, you know who you are!)
What an impressive lot of recipes you all have added over the last 2 weeks! I’m going to have a very hard time just picking 4 featured recipes with so many beauties! Drumroll please….
My first pick for Allergy-Friendly Friday is this gorgeous Lemon Cake from Sheena Cucina. Lemon cake is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world.
Next I was wowed by these adorable seasonal Pumpkin Krispie Treats from Fresh4Five. These would be great on your Thanksgiving table as part of the dessert spread, don’t you think? Kids would love an alternative to pumpkin pie!
Then I noticed this innovative and warming Creamy Pumpkin Breakfast Cereal from Tessa the Domestic Diva.
And last, but certainly not least, I was drawn to these mega Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins from Gluten Freely Frugal.
These were just four of the many many wonderful allergy-free and gluten-free recipes you submitted over the past two weeks. Please come back with your links for this week! PLEASE remember you have to link back from your post, for me to feature your recipe. That means link WITH A HYPERLINK THAT LINKS BACK HERE. When you link back to this post, you can share both your own and other’s fabulous allergy-friendly recipes. Am I repeating myself? 🙂 And remember, I specialize in creating gluten-free recipes that are free of the top 8 food allergens, but yours don’t have to be. They just have to be allergy-friendly in SOME way.
