Don’t Forget the Dressing!

This is a plea to the wonderful restaurants that offer gluten free (gf) options. Please, don’t forget the dressing! A salad seems to be an easy option for restaurants to make GF given the frequency that they appear on the GF menu.  But, all too frequently, there are...

Olive Pits, not Garden

Olive Pits, not Garden

I have had gift cards for Olive Garden sitting in a drawer for a while, and recently decided to use them to grab take-out during a very busy week.  I called and placed the order based on the list of gluten-free options listed online.  I ordered the mixed...

Fries Guys, at Five Guys

I decided to try a new fast food place that was rumored to be ok to eat at for the non-gluten eating crowd.  Eating gluten-free at a fast food place makes me nervous.  Too many times I have received a strange look when ordering something bun-free, or...

Several people have mentioned the wonders of Miracle Noodles to me, but it was not until recently that I came across them in a store in the Toledo area.  I found them on a recent trip to Bassett’s.  The noodles proclaim to be gluten-free, calorie-free and...
