ALLERGAROO-All Natural Ready Made Dishes

I cannot tell you enough how great the GF Cooking Expo was-Great Job JEN! Another of my favorite vendors was ALLERGAROO This awesome company was founded by Tabor, a mother of 2 children with multiple food allergies. The products are free of the 8 most common food allergens: wheat/gluten, milk, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish and shellfish.

Each 8 oz. package of Chili Mac, Spyglass Noodles and Spaghetti are microwave ready. I tried the Chili Mac and it was fantastic. These ready to take meals would be great for on -the- go people, travel, and quick after school meals. I highly recommend them.

Tabor said that they are available at some Jewel Stores in the Chicagoland area. For more information call her at 314-256-1433 or email her at

GF Bread by Andrea's Fine Foods

I had a fantastic time at the GF Cooking Expo in Oakbrook, IL. It was a great 2 days and I enjoyed talking to everyone. There were a lot of great vendors at this event. One of my favorite vendors was Andrea's Fine Foods She had sandwich bread for sale ($7/loaf).

I tired it and immediately thought it was the best bread I have ever tasted! I swear you will enjoy it! You don't even have to toast it! I am down to my last loaf (freezes nicely) and will be buying more. Please contact her at 636-536-9953 or visit She is looking for support groups in the area to contact her-she wants you to try her bread for FREE!
