Glutino Goodness

Glutino Goodness

I have been on a quest to find the new Glutino crackers since I heard they came out.  This quest led me to the Meijer on Central Avenue, ok, truth be told it let my husband there.  I asked him to make a stop on his way home from work to see if they had the...
Hot Dogs have their own month?

Hot Dogs have their own month?

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Applegate to try their Super Natural Hot Dogs. Apparently July is National Hot Dog Month, who knew? The Super Natural Hot Dogs are gluten and casein-free, along with being all natural. However, none of that would matter if they...
Zip into Zingo’s

Zip into Zingo’s

For a year I have been hearing about Zingo’s from my cousin who lives down the street from the restaurant. I finally got a chance to check it out. Zingo’s serves tasty Mediterranean food at a fair price. Most dishes come with rice pilaf, which is not...
No Dish Needed

No Dish Needed

After two years of eating my ice cream in a dish, I finally was able to an ice cream cone.  My summer snacking just got a little better! First let me state that I am a sugar cone girl, not a cake cone girl.  This meant the discovery of gluten-free sugar...
Not So Miraculous Noodles

Not So Miraculous Noodles

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...

A Wall You Can Eat

I recently went into Bassett’s Health Foods (the one on Secor).  I shopped there when I first went gluten-free and did not find a lot of options. But I was pleasantly surprised at the additions they have made to their selection of gluten-free items. The best part...

Grillin’ It Gluten-Free

Grilling season has arrived, which is my favorite time to cook gluten-free.  There is nothing easier than adding a bit of spice to a few pieces of meat and veggies and throwing them on the grill.  A must have for my gluten-free grilling summer is a grill basket.  This...
Not for the Novice

Not for the Novice

My husband picked up a few new gluten-free cookbooks for me on a recent trip. One is Blackbird Bakery Gluten-Free, by Karen Morgan. If you are an adventurous baker, and not afraid of recipes that are more than five ingredients, I highly recommend it.  I had to special...

Cinco De Mayo a Bit Early

Over the last two years, I have visited several Mexican restaurants in the Toledo area that were willing to make gluten-free accommodations for me.  However, none of them had a dedicated gf menu, and anytime cooking gf is not a standard procedure at a restaurant, I...
Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

One of the products I picked up at Walt Churchill’s was a boxed mixed from 123 Gluten Free.  I am always a bit nervous about purchasing gluten-free boxed mixes.  In my experience, they tend to be a bit on the gritty side, and I have found that when I bake...
