Here comes Peter Cottontail…


  I have many happy memories of childhood Easters, and Easter baskets.  We had a huge, sugar coated egg that we would get every year-what ever happened to those? But of course, aside from jelly beans, who could forget Mr. Chocolate Bunny?  We would always eat the ears first! And don’t forget the chocolate, cream,…

Review of Red Robin’s interactive allergen menu


For most of us, dining out brings feelings of dread and can put us into a cold sweat.  We hope that the restaurant at least has an online gluten free or allergen menu we can study ahead of time, so we know what we’re up against. I saw a commercial for Red Robin the other…

Is sourdough the answer?


  I came across an interesting article this morning on my news feed.  The article from The Guardian: Could sourdough bread be the answer to the gluten sensitivity epidemic made me really think.  I thought I would share my thoughts with all of you.

Gumming up the works….


  I mentioned in my post yesterday that I am having issues with pre-packaged baked goods. Aside from agave, honey and dairy, I think I have found the culprit(s) I bought Udi’s blueberry muffins last week.  I got a bit of an upset tummy after eating them.  The same goes for the Katz’s donut holes…

Oops I did it again….


  The other night, I decided it was time to take another chance and go out to dinner.  I had to drop off a package for return at the UPS store, so we decided to try O’Charley’s, a local TGI Friday’s type place. When I do go out, which isn’t frequently, I am always pleasantly…
