New Name, New Look, Same Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Focus (Giveaway)


If you came here looking for gluten-free and dairy-free reviews and are wondering what website you are on right now, don't panic. 

Hello, it's me- Amanda- your gluten-free and dairy-free tour guide on Eating Out Without Gluten and Dairy. Going into my third year of blogging, the time had come for my little blog to grow up a bit, taking on a new name and new look. After all, since the beginning, I have expanded my focus from exclusively restaurant reviews to now including product reviews and coverage of events in the celiac and food allergy world. The blog had simply outgrown it's original conception and name. 

In the reimagined blog, now named Gluten & Dairy-Free Review Central, not much is changing content-wise. Reviews will still be 100% authentic and independently tested by me, because I value honesty above all else. My social media streams will continue focus on gluten and dairy-free products and advocacy, and show off how I live as a college student with food allergies. 

Going forward, I've got some fun things in the works in the near future. Next month is my birthday month so I'm definitely dreaming up ways to celebrate (stay tuned for giveaways!). April is my annual intensive look at all things baking, and I've already partnered with some fabulous brands to make this year's line up the best yet. Plus, upcoming adventures to North Carolina, Washington DC and Cincinnati will allow me to change up my routine a bit and showcase more cities outside of the Baltimore area. 

Because I'm doing a complete overhaul of the blog, there may be glitches going forward with broken links and formatting of pages. Please let me know if you experience these because it'll help me make the transition as smooth as possible. Besides just the website update, my social media channels are changing as well, so make sure you link up with my new accounts going forward (see icons to your right at the top of the page). 

Finally, I want to give a heartfelt thank you to you, my readers. When I started this blog, I had no idea how long it would go and what it would become. Thanks to your support, Eating Out Without has grown into its own and has helped me grow personally and professionally. I am a far better advocate and cook than I was when I started out, and am much happier and healthier thanks to the products and restaurants I have discovered as a result of the blog. 

One last note- because of all of the changes on the blog, I am a bit late to the Valentine's Day game. Instead of focusing one one day, I want to celebrate February as the "month of love" with a little giveaway from Enjoy Life Foods. I'm drawing a winner at the end of the month who will win a love-filled box of goodies from Enjoy Life Foods. You will win a heart-shaped pancake stencil, one box of pancake mix, one bag of dark chocolate morsels, and one coupon for a free Enjoy Life Foods product of your choice. Imagine how delicious chocolate chip pancakes would be with your loved one!
