10 Year Recap: Gratitude 🙏
Thank you dear readers and friends for your constant support of NutFreeWok.com! When I started blogging about my family’s favorite recipes and my food allergy mom life, I never thought about how long I would blog but amazingly it’s been 10 years!
A lot can happen in 10 years! While I try to share and advocate as much as I can, I juggle life, work, family, home, etc.. I am super proud to send my kids off to college. It was wild to cook during a global health crisis for a family of four, develop 60 recipes in 60 days for a cookbook, and then adapt to cooking for 2 empty-nesters all in the span of one year! Thank you for believing in me and for the honor of receiving the Best Allergy-Free Blogger award.
A lot of thanks and credit goes to my family. My family has contributed a lot to this blog with their taste testing and feedback as well as their stories and ideas. My husband is the tech guy behind the website and provides all kinds of support. So many readers have become friends, thank you for seeing me. I may be the face of Nut Free Wok, but you and my family are the heart. Love you all!

I decided to celebrate big by hosting a big giveaway. I’m partnering with some of my favorite companies to give away 10 gifts over 10 days!

I cannot think of a better way to highlight the best of the best and share the love with you! Many thanks to Rodelle, ZEGO Foods, BRIANNAS, The Greater Knead, Snack Safely, Safe + Fair, Spokin, Enjoy Life Foods, and Koon Chun for their generous gifts for NutFreeWok.com’s blogiversary celebration!

A new giveaway will start everyday between February 21 to March 1 so check back daily for multiple opportunities to win. All the food related gifts are nut-free but double check that they align with your allergies and preferences for your household before entering. Ages 18+ and US addresses only. Giveaways are not affiliated with Instagram, Meta, Target, or Amazon. See below for complete rules.
Day 1 (2/21): Rodelle – Allergy Friendly Extracts
I have been a Rodelle brand ambassador for many years now. I love that their vanilla extracts and other baking extracts are made without peanuts or tree nuts in their facilities. They are very responsive if you need to clarify regarding other allergens. One of my most favorite recipes using Rodelle vanilla is Po Tat, an egg tart in a puff pastry shell.
Day 2 (2/22): ZEGO Foods – Top 9+ Allergen Free
ZEGO Food‘s products follow the Purity Protocol for gluten-free standards and are produced in a top 9+ allergen free facility. We can also have additional peace of mind that they also test for 500 other agricultural chemicals. I love that ZEGO provides a QR code on the package so we can see the available allergen and chemical test results.
Day 3 (2/23): BRIANNAS: Nut-Free and Gluten-Free Dressings
BRIANNAS makes dressings and marinades that are gluten-free, sesame-free, and nut-free, with some dairy-free and egg-free options. I also love that their products do not contain trans fat and high fructose corn syrup. My favorite dressing is BRIANNAS poppy seed dressing.
They also recently launched a line of delicious marinades and I love chicken breasts marinated with their Citrus Mediterranean marinade and then baked. Their delicious croutons (contains wheat) are also made in a nut-free facility and so good with salads and soups.
I love BRIANNAS FAQ and Product Attributes page, which answers most people’s food allergen and nutrition questions. I think that providing information about allergens is so helpful for people with food allergies. They informed me that they’re in the process of updating these pages, please contact them if you have additional questions.
BRIANNAS Giveaway: your choice of a variety pack of nut-free, sesame-free, and gluten-free dressings and marinades and a variety pack of croutons made in a nut-free facility, contains milk, wheat, and soy.
Day 4 (2/24): The Greater Knead – Top 9 Allergen Free & Gluten Free Baked Goods
The Greater Knead makes top 9 allergen free and gluten free baked goods. They specialize in making bagels in a variety of flavors and have other products, including pretzel bites, bagel chips, and bags of their top allergen and gluten free flour. They’re available in stores as well as via a subscription service.
They have previously sent me samples of the bagels and pretzel bites. The bagels and pretzel bites are soft and chewy at the same time and very good considering they are made without dairy or eggs. To prepare the bagels, The Greater Knead recommends microwaving the frozen bagel for approximately 60 seconds and then toast them for the best texture and flavor.
The Greater Knead Giveaway: 4 packs of their bagels
Day 5 (2/25): SnackSafely
Dave and Debra Bloom, the co-founders of SnackSafely.com maintain an extensive database of allergy-friendly snacks and food products. I’m so thankful for their friendship over the years and their support of what I’m doing here at Nut Free Wok.
Dave generously offered to send two of their mugs that say “Warning: Mother of a child with food allergies, stop talking, sit down, and take notes” and a $10 Target gift card so that you can select your favorite coffee, tea, or other beverage. This gift is in celebration of friendships with moms and dads of children with food allergies. We make an incredible community when we collaborate.
SnackSafely Giveaway: two Snack Safely food allergy mom mugs and a Target gift card ($10 value, Target is not affiliated with this giveaway)
Day 6 (2/26): Safe + Fair – Top 9 Free Granola
Safe + Fair manufactures granola in a facility free from the top 9 allergens. That’s a big deal to this granola loving mama because granola typically contains nuts or have precautionary allergen labels for nuts. Safe + Fair granola is a game changer so that I can enjoy granola around my sons worry-free!
Safe and Fair Giveaway: your choice of two different flavors of their granola
Day 7 (2/27): Spokin
Spokin features a free app that helps people living with food allergies and celiac disease find allergy-safe foods and places to eat. The crowd-sourced reviews are submitted by people with varying food allergies, always double-check for your own food allergies before eating.
I had the pleasure to meet Susie Holquist, founder and CEO of Spokin, many years ago at a conference and love her passion and mission as a food allergy mom to create an app that is user-friendly for everyone, especially our young adult children and their friends.
Spokin Giveaway: Amazon gift card ($20 value)
Day 8 (2/28): Enjoy Life Foods – Free of 14 Top Allergens
Enjoy Life Foods makes products free of 14 top allergens and gluten. Their products include baking chocolate, chocolate bars, and lentil chips, all of which are delicious.
Enjoy Life will ship one winner a case of Enjoy Life baking chocolate! The winner will have their choice of 1 case (12 bags) of either Semi-sweet Mini Chips, Semi-sweet Mega Chunks, Dark Chocolate Morsels, Rice Milk Baking Morsels Chocolate, or White Mini Baking Chips.
Enjoy Life Foods Giveaway: one winner will receive a case of Enjoy Life baking chocolate (12 bags of the same variety)
Day 9 (2/29): Koon Chun – Chinese Cooking Sauces
Koon Chun is a 95 year old company founded in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Their “facility does not process peanuts, nuts, meat, eggs, or dairy.” Some products contain soy, wheat, sesame, oysters, and/or shrimp. I love that they use non-GMO soydbeans and do not use any chemicals or preservatives.
When I make Cantonese style Chinese recipes with Koon Chun sauces, I love that the flavors are spon-on. They’re my go-to brand of sauces for Chinese recipes and also widely used in Chinese restaurants.
You can find most of their products in well-stocked Asian supermarkets. Little mom and pop Chinese grocery stores will carry some products but not the entire line. I will personally shop and ship this gift to you due to logistics and I’m partnering with Koon Chun to make it happen! The Koon Chun cooking sauces will be subject to availability, but here’s my plan.
For this gift set, I am selecting two of my favorite soy sauces, a bottle of thin soy sauce for everyday cooking and a bottle of premium soy sauce for braises and stews. I also love oyster sauce and hoisin sauce, so you will receive those too. Bonus: I will also give you the option to select A) another sauce (subject to availability) or B) an autographed copy of Chinese Instant Pot Cookbook.
Koon Chun Giveaway: 5 Koon Chun cooking sauces, includes 2 soy sauces, 1 hoisin sauce, 1 oyster sauce. Bonus: your choice of one more jar of Koon Chun sauce or an autographed copy of Chinese Instant Pot Cookbook.
Day 10 (3/1): Rodelle – Allergy Friendly Extracts
