Hi all! It’s been unseasonably warm in New Hampshire which is making me (Denise) paranoid that we’re about to get slammed with snow despite the groundhog’s predictions for an early spring.

Snacksafely.com had an article on the FDA’s recent Allergenic Products Advisory Committee meeting to discuss progress toward effective Allergy Immunotherapy (AIT). Contained in the article were links to the meeting materials: one on Clinical Development of Allergen Immunotherapies for the Treatment of Food Allergy and one on Prevention of Respiratory Allergic Diseases with Allergen Immunotherapy.

Monday is Chinese New Year — 2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey. Chinese used to be one of my go-to cuisines when I was just dairy-free, but it’s a little harder with gluten and soy issues. Still, it is kind of exciting to read about “new” American Chinese cuisine.

Also, it is citrus season again — check out 23 citrus recipes from The Kitchn. Not all of them are allergy-friendly, but a good number of them seem adaptable.

Have a great weekend everyone!
