Stop EPI Pen Price Gouging




Mylan's 420% price increase on life-saving EpiPen needs to be stopped, we need to write a letter to congress to help stop EpiPen Price gauging. 

How can we afford to keep our children safe even if they offer a $0 co-pay or $100 savings.

Click here to send your letter.

Thank you!

Our Dog Allergic Child Got a PUPPY!!


I never thought we would see this day! We got a puppy and my super allergic son is NOT allergic to her. She is hypo-allergenic Teddy Bear, part Shih Tzu, and Bichon Frise. Her name is Zoey and she is 3 months. We love her so much!! 

Nathan hasn't had any problems with her. He still is allergic to dogs but not all dogs.

It has PEANUTS!!

Here is an another example of bad food ingredient labeling. 

I got this cookie for me and luckily I have no allergies.
It clearly contains peanuts and peanut butter but at the bottom it only states that is CONTAINS DAIRY.  But if you read the ingredients it actually contains WHEAT (GLUTEN), MILK, and EGGS in addition to the DAIRY. 

This make me nervous that food is being sold with this kind of labeling.  It came from a local bakery so I did block out the name.

Just a reminder to read all of the label.

Chocolate Pie

Nathan has asked about chocolate pie so I found this pie crust at one of my local grocery stores. It is GF, Egg Free, Dairy Free and Nut Free. I took some JELLO choclate pudding and made it according to the package but used soy milk instead of dairy. 



It turned out pretty good, I added marshmallows on top. Wish we had soy whip cream, that would have been better.
