Put the Bun Back into Your Diet at Indulge

Most of my burger experiences have been disappointing at best since the bun was removed from my diet nearly 10 years ago when I found out I had Celiac. I consider myself lucky if I can find a restaurant that will do a lettuce wrap for me, but no more sad “protein style” burgers for me thanks to Indulge Burger! They offer a perfectly toasted gluten free burger courtesy of Gluten Free Creations Bakery and some delectable desserts to boot. Continue reading

Gluten Free Pizza Options at Streets of New York

I’ve driven by the Streets of New York for the last 5 years just wishing I could eat there.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

With the first hint of autumn air finally crawling into Phoenix, I decided it was time to whip up a batch of pumpkin muffins to satisfy my sweet tooth. I found a recipe I liked from Elana’s Pantry, but modified it slightly to make it a bit sweeter and increase the quantity it made. You can also add some fun ingredients like chocolate chips, nuts, or candy pieces if you want to make it even sweeter. My 3 year old likes to add “mushalooms”, also known in English as marshmallows, to make it a sweet after school treat! Continue reading

Eating Gluten Free in Paris

I’ve been trying to eat gluten free in Paris for the last 3 days now, and have to say it’s been more of a challenge than I thought it would be. It has been torture every time I walk past a patisserie full of croissants and pain au chocolats and not being able to eat the foods that I used to indulge in during my pre-Celiac days. Worse though, is that finding something convenient and gluten free that my 3 year old daughter will eat in Paris – that has been a challenge in its own right. Man cannot live on French Fries alone … or can he? Continue reading
