It all started in the Dear Family kitchen when Janie Dear would pull out her infamous peanut brittle recipe each holiday season to make as Christmas gifts for everyone. She would start her list with family members and grow it to her husband's coworkers, the guy who always filled up her gas tank, the mailman, old friends and whoever else had impacted her over the year. It was when she was going to make peanut brittle for her hairstylist when she discovered Vegan Peanut Brittle!
Janie is the mother of Taylor, Lillian and her dogs Sunny and Gracie and wife to Steven. They all currently reside in Ramsey, New Jersey and Taylor lives in New York City.
