The winter doldrums are upon us. I dread every incoming winter storm, and loathe the melting snow and ankle deep mud that will be my driveway for the next 1-2 months. I curse my dog every time he goes out, then comes in leaving muddy paw prints all over my floors; which does nothing for my OCD level of annoyance with dirt on my floors. (Yes- I sweep and vacuum almost daily!)
Well, in spite of the mud, I for one am ready for SPRING! Welcome Sunshine, warmer days, and baseball season. March 11th also marks the birth of my first son 8 years ago. He was my introduction to life threatening allergies, which in turn, led me to starting this blog, and to connecting with you!
In Celebration of my son’s birthday, and the end of winter, welcome of spring- Let’s kick it off with my first ever give-away courtesy of Amanda’s Own Confections.
Like so many of us who are thrust into managing life-threatening allergies to keep our children safe, Beth started her company in 2005 as a result of her daughter’s life-threatening food allergy to dairy products. She did not want her daughter, Amanda, to miss out on all the chocolate holidays, like Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Chanukah/Hanukkah, or the everyday events that include chocolate, like baking chocolate chip cookies with dairy free chocolate chips. “We started making chocolate that is totally dairy free, tree nut free, peanut free, egg free & gluten free for Amanda and she loved it. We shared our chocolate with friends who have children with food allergies and the response to the great taste and safe ingredients was overwhelmingly positive. We decided to offer these treats to everyone.”
Amanda’s Own Confections offers a full range of delicious chocolates and candies that are dairy-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, egg-free, gluten-free, shellfish-free, and sesame-free. Their products are also vegan and Kosher. (Be a sweetie and like them on Facebook too!)
