Baked pumpkin seeds

Don’t throw them out! The pumpkin innards might be ooky and gooky but it’s worth digging through them for the seeds. And since you are making a family activity of the carving, why not teach the kids about a healthy treat? We used a cookie sheet with paper towels for the collection of the seeds, […]

Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest

I’ve been attending this gluten free food sampling Mecca since it started in Indy. In fact, when it started, it was not owned by Gluten free & more magazine. It was a local creation. After the initiation years and public build-up, the magazine purchased the show and took over. However, things have changed. While I […]

Gluten Free Subscription Box

So, I’ve tried them… various gluten free boxes with minimal products, stocked full of the same ole, same ole or worse… just a few measly samples. Ugh.  When I had the option to try American Gluten Free @americanglutenfree I was skeptical because of these experiences.  However, all I had to do was open the box […]

Gluten free condiments

One of the things people ask me the most about eating is, “is there really gluten in condiments?” Yes, sadly, there is. More often than not, wheat is used as a filler, binder and (I suppose) just for good measure. I also see a lot of barley malt, which is made from barley and therefore […]

Gluten free soy ginger chicken

In an attempt to make creative, flavorful meals that are heathy… ugh, I’m exhausted at the thought… I created something new. I bought the chicken leg pack at Costco… Then I split it up and put half (3 bags) in the freezer. Then I opened the 3 remaining packs and put half of them (8) […]

Gluten free D.C., Pt. 4

There is so much amazing gluten free ground to cover in D.C…. I didn’t scratch the surface of what they have to offer but I still managed to find some great eats! There are distinctly areas of town for dining gluten free that provide more than chain type express joints, Alexandria proved to be one […]

Gluten free salsa meal

Quick, grab your magic pot and follow me! This dinner was super fast, easy and delicious. Sometimes I work for hours and end up with dinner that is just so-so. I feel so redeemed to try something like this and end up with a winner that will reside on our staples meal list for years […]

Gluten free D.C. Eats, Pt. 3

We spent a week in D.C. and half of it was near the hotel but we did venture out a few times, often just to try food in the neighboring communities. Honestly, that’s my favorite part of traveling. While in the National Harbor we also had the pleasure of dining at McCormick and Schmick’s. This […]

Gluten free D.C. Eats, Pt. 2

If you are headed into downtown D.C., you will quickly notice that all of the buildings house a federal office of some sort. Interestingly, you will not see places to eat. It’s actually very bizarre. It took us a few hours touring to realize that snack shacks were owned by The Government and food trucks […]

Gluten free D.C. Eats, Pt. 1

Where we eat depends a lot on where we stay and the purpose of our trip.  On this trip, we are staying at the Gaylord Convention Center in Maryland. It sits on the bank of the Potomac with striking views, easy access to DC tourist attractions and has several in house restaurants. I most cases […]
