National Waffle Day!

What did you have for breakfast this morning? Cereal? Eggs and sausage? Yogurt? Well if you had any of that, you missed out on celebrating National Waffle Day! You read that correctly; today is National Waffle Day. The "holiday" marks the anniversary of the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron, which Cornelius Swarthout received on August 24, 1869.

Now we know that Cherrybrook Kitchen's allergen-friendly and gluten-free Pancake & Waffle mixes weren't around 141 years ago for that first waffle iron, but we can't think of a better way to celebrate National Waffle Day than by using your modern-day waffle iron to cook up a fresh batch of waffles without having to worry about your food allergies. Let us know what you think about National Waffle Day and send us some pictures of you and your family celebrating this, or any, holiday!

School's out....'til September

It may still be hot and humid where you live (like it is here in Massachusetts) but school will be back in session in as little as two weeks from now.

Preparing to turn the calendar over to September means preparing for the return of children to local public schools, private high schools, and colleges and universities. FAAN has updated their Food Allergy Action Plan for the 2010-2011 school year and this form is incredibly important for any student with food allergies. This form should be filled out and given to school nurses, administrators, or anyone else who could be a first responder to an allergy emergency. These individuals must be given proper information about your child's specific allergies and how to react, including the correct use of injectible epinephrine (EpiPen, Twinject, etc.).

At Cherrybrook Kitchen, we are doing our part to make the lives of food allergy sufferers and their families at least a little easier (and tastier!). However, you can never be too prepared, especially when your child's critical needs may become lost with the hectic environment that is present with hundreds, if not thousands, of other students.

So while you're stocking up on pencils, lunch boxes, and backpacks, be sure to take ten minutes to fill out this form. Not only will the school appreciate not having to scramble for this information when they really need it but it will give you one less thing to worry about.

Cherrybrook Kitchen Photo Contest

Our latest photo contest winner is Jennifer from Merced, CA. Here's her cute picture:

Luke's 1st Birthday!

Jennifer's Story:
In Late September we found out that our 2nd child Lucas is allergic to Egg, Wheat, Milk and Peanuts. My first thought was "what is he going to eat?" What do you feed a kid with such a restricted diet? Surley there is nothing with any flavor. I began to think of things he could not eat instead of what he could eat. I thought about his upcoming birthday, he wouldn't even get to enjoy cake on his own birthday!! Thats where you come in Cherrybrook Kitchen. You and your wonderful gluten free chocolate cake mix and vanilla frosting. Luke had his cake and ate it too! I just want to say you are not only putting out a safe product for people with food allergies. You are helping Families to make happy memories.

Thank you for your story Jennifer. We are honored that Luke enjoyed Cherrybrook Kitchen cake at his first birthday party! If you have a special story and picture to share, please visit our website for details on how to share it with us.
