We Interrupt Your Monday…

For the First Pumpkin Sighting!  The date is August 29, 2011 and there has been a pumpkin sighting.  Pumpkin ranks right up there with chocolate & wine for me, so I always have my feelers out looking for pumpkin goods.  One of my favorite companies came through.

Peeled Snacks: Review and Giveaway

Who likes dried fruit? I do! I can’t keep my hands out of it! Last week I reviewed Peeled Snacks on Celiac-Disease.com. Peeled Snacks are great for on-the-go snacks for school, gym or travel. I love that they come in small, single-serve packs for easy portability and less waste.

Weekly Menu Plan–August 28, 2011

Today is a very exciting day for a friend of mine.  Beth, featured here as a gluten-free marathon runner, is competing today in her first Ironman in Louisville, KY.  I can’t even begin to tell you all how excited I am for Beth.  I have know Beth since high school and we reconnected a [...]

Everything Spelt

Spelt is not gluten-free.  Why am I writing this post?  Education.  Spelt is not safe for those with Celiac Disease to consume. Spelt is a species of wheat.  Wheat is gluten.  2 + 2 = 4.  More on spelt from Wikipedia:

Spelt (Triticum spelta) is a hexaploid species of wheat. Spelt was an important [...]

Keeping Me Honest

Okay, it is really “Keeping Them Honest”, but there is no them here, just me.  Unfortunately Anderson Cooper wasn’t available to help with this project, he probably has more important things to do. 

At the risk of looking like a hoarder, I am about to share a picture with you.  I am sharing [...]

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 [...]

Bits & Pieces

Today I am sharing bits & pieces of things I have swirling around in my head. It really isn’t enough information for one post, so I am making a conglomeration.

First up, gluten-free ravioli or tortellini. Jon asks me for this all the time, but I have never made pasta from scratch. Ever. Not [...]

Giveaway: El’s Gluten-Free Snacks

One of my favorite pre-gluten-free snacks was bagel chips. I loved the crunch. Nothing like a salty, spicy, crunch snack to wake you up in the middle of an afternoon slump. I have missed that and haven’t really found anything to quite take the place of those bagel chips. Until now. Enter: El’s Gluten-Free snacks. [...]
