Happy 16th Birthday, Jon!

I said it the other day and I’ll say it again – where did my baby go?

All grown up!

I am making him a surprise for when he gets home from school today!  I can say it here because I am pretty sure he isn’t reading my blog.  If he is, [...]

Burger King Fries

It has been going through the blogosphere that Burger King’s French fries are now gluten-free. I thought they had always been gluten-free as far as ingredients go, but they were contaminated due to being fried with the chicken.

Turns out they have just recently changed their recipe as [...]

I Must Dance…

If you have been a reader for a while, you are well aware that I am easily amused and sometimes feel the need to break out into a happy dance when I find new gluten-free products & such.  We have had a crazy busy week and I have not been feeling well due to [...]

Welcome to November!

Hope everyone had a good Halloween last night!  We did here.  My BFF and I walked around the neighborhood with Hannah and Emma (BFF’s daughter).  Hannah was dressed as a Zebra; Emma was Ariel. Love the wig!  

e had a freak hail storm hit about 4:30 PM yesterday.  I thought for sure that [...]

Gluten-Free Menus: More = Good or Bad?

I don’t know about you, but after the debacle with California Pizza Kitchen, I am on the fence about the prevalence of gluten-free menus. Yes, it gives me warm fuzzies when I walk into a restaurant and find out that they do indeed have a gluten-free menu. However, 30 seconds later I begin to [...]

California Pizza Kitchen Continued

Earlier this summer California Pizza Kitchen debuted gluten-free pizza on their menu.  I was giddy.  I loved CPK pre-gluten-free and couldn’t wait to go back and try their new pizza.  Well, we did, and it was great, but our spirits were quickly dampened by the news that there could be major cross contamination issues [...]

This is How We Do It….

I don’t know why that song is stuck in my head. I am weird and I know it. My mom and step dad came in town over the weekend. My mom loves California Pizza Kitchen and was thrilled that they were now offering gluten-free pizza, so we had originally planned on heading there for [...]

Consistency–A Good Thing

When gluten-free restaurant chains have a gluten-free menu, you have to wonder how consistent the process is across the country or their areas of service.  Sometimes you find that things are done by the book and don’t really vary from place to place much at all.  Other times, even though there is a gluten-free menu [...]

Eating Away From Home

As you all know, eating gluten-free while traveling can pose certain challenges.  In these days, it is not hard to find something to eat that is gluten-free, but it is hard to find the things you want to eat that are gluten-free.  Any convenient store has Fritos (only has corn, oil and salt) or Snicker’s [...]

Taco Time Offering Gluten-Free Menu Items

While this exciting news does not directly affect me, it may affect some of my readers, so I felt compelled to share this information.  I am all about spreading the word when I hear of a restaurant catering to the needs of the gluten-free community.  The more awareness that we have out there, the better [...]
