My Picks for the Liebster Award!

A few weeks ago, Anu Rao at Allergy Foodie picked my blog for the Liebster Award. Yeah! And thank you Anu! I’ve been following Anu for a while, and I love her point of view on issues and (of course) her recipes.

Liebster is a German word for “Good Friend,” and I am honored that Anu picked me! Each recipient is supposed to pass the award on to five of their favorite blogs, and you will see my picks in a second.

First, the rules.
To accept this award you must:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and Paste the Award to your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the word and love to other bloggers.
5. Have fun.

Now, I must say that picking only five blogs for this award was tough, as there are so many great food allergy blogs out there. But here goes…

My winners are:

Lisa at Allergy-Free Vintage Cookery – I first discovered Lisa’s blog during the Circle of Moms search for the best food allergy blogs. I absolutely love her photos!

Jenny at Multiple Food Allergy Help – Jenny tells it like it is when it comes to food allergies, and is among the best at passing on critical information.

Jennifer at Food Allergy Buzz – This is one of the first food allergy blogs I followed. Jennifer disappeared for a while in 2011, but she’s back in 2012 – with a mission! And she runs the Food Allergy Blog Carnival.

Karen at Avoiding Milk Blog – Karen’s blog is a great place to find out the nuts and bolts of products.

Tessa at Tessa the Domestic Diva – Tessa and a few of her friends recently started Allergy-Friendly Wednesdays – a place to find and share great recipes.

Congratulations to these food allergy bloggers!! Every one of them meets the qualification of “good friend” to families with food allergies. Be sure to check out their blogs.

Thanks so much for the award, Colette! I think taking the photos for the blog is my favorite part :) (Oh, and testing the desserts...) Thanks again, and will pass it on this weekend.

I love the positive community that moms across the world have created around food allergies. Enjoying your top 5 picks - a couple of whom I already follow but the others are a new and informative find.

Best Wishes,
