Love It! Thursdays Giveaway: HomeFree Treats!

It seems like lately more and more of the kids I know are allergic to something. Peanuts, of course. Dairy, sure. But wheat? And gluten? It seems our kids are becoming more and more sensitive to certain ingredients with each new generation. I even know of a 4-year old allergic to grass. Poor thing!

The good news is that children with these types of allergies can still have their cookies, cake and eat them too, thanks to the good folks at HomeFree Treats! They were kind enough to send me some samples of their cookies and BOY was I sold!! Let me first say that (1) I don't have any allergies, so it's not like I need to eat cookies without certain ingredients; and (2) I'm not an organic-fanatic in the least (I mean an organic cookie? What's the point?) So believe me when I say that these cookies are off the hook. I would totally buy them just for their taste alone.

Jill Robbins, a mom, clinical psychologist and founder of HomeFree, created the bakery, with a line of delicious, wholesome cookies and cakes, as well as a cook book full of easy to make allergen-free recipes, so that kids with food allergies can enjoy treats along with everyone else. She seems to have thought of everything, from making her goodies in a dedicated bakery to minimize the risk of her baked goods being contaminated with food allergens, to creating an allergen-free baking cookbook so that parents can bake for their kiddies without worry.

All of the treats offered by HomeFree are peanuts, tree nuts, egg, wheat*, and dairy free. (You can check out their FAQs for specifics on what is and is not contained in their products).
All I can say is that the cookies were good. Ask my sister - I ate the whole (sampler) packge in one evening. Tsk tsk. In fact, they were so good that I want to share them with you! I have 2 boxes of HomeFree Organic Cookies to giveaway to one lucky MamaLaw reader. Just (1) become a follower of our blog; and (2) leave me a comment telling me why you should win. A winner will be chosen on Sunday, June 22.

*for those for whom traces of wheat could be a concern, please note that their grains are processed in shared facilities with wheat. Further, due to agricultural practices in this country, oats often contain traces of wheat.

I see I am a little late. I had some trouble getting to your site the last couple of days.

Anyway, I follow and I should win because I know people with allergies that could use these. Thanks!!!!
