Wendy’s is the hidden gem of the gluten free dining world and is quickly becoming my favorite place to eat out. I recently realized that people aren’t aware of their gluten free offerings (many more than other fast food restaurants) so I quickly jotted down this review. Continue reading
One of our good friends messaged me last week. His daughter had been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and he wanted some good getting started info. I sent him a message with links to my “getting started” posts, and then I realized how convenient it would be to actually have all those posts on one page. Continue reading
When you first go gluten free, it can be a struggle to just figure out what to eat. At the end of a busy day, making dinner can seem almost impossible. No more throwing a frozen lasagna into the oven or whipping up some hamburger helper. Even if you regularly made a fancy dinner from scratch, it can be a challenge to find new recipes.

And I was thinking, you know what would look great like that? Corn relish. Corn relish is such an incredibly boring looking food. It looks like corn in a bowl. Lets add a dash of irony and take a picture of it as artistically and mysteriously as possible. Continue reading
