There’s a lot of misinformation out there about chocolate and cheese (blue cheese in particular) and it needs to go by the way side. People who are gluten-intolerant, gluten-sensitive, or have celiac disease must limit themselves enough as it is, so I’m including links to a couple of very well written About articles by expert Jane Anderson to set the record straight.
I’m encouraging you to not be dissuaded by gluten-free alarmists (and they’re out there), who might be well-intended, but who perhaps haven’t done enough reading/research...Read More
Peter and I used to enjoy heading over to Avanti Caffe in Mount Prospect, IL once in a while. That is, until I decided to embark upon the gluten-free journey.
I think our initial experience with Avanti’s food was at a friend’s housewarming party. Avanti catered the party and OH! The Giant Cannoli! -Filled with a plethora of delicious little cannoli for individual consumption. Obviously, that made an impression. So, off Peter and I went to Avanti – The Caffe. Not being huge fans of Italian food in general (believe it our not), Peter and I were both pleasantly surprised by Avanti’s offerings, especially their sausage pizzas and calzones. The sausage is “correctly” spiced. (I suspect it’s a fennel thing.)

And why not? They’re sweet, succulent, and gooey balls of deliciousness. And, you guessed it, they’re usually gluten-free.
Let’s begin our conversation knowing I’ve been pining after pins on Pinterest.com. (I’m building-up a showcase of wares, food related and otherwise, in conjunction with my new venture to support up-and-coming artists and designers worldwide.) While pining yesterday, I happened across a 2 ingredient recipe for coconut macaroons that left me dumbfounded.
Not one to allow myself to remain dumbfounded for long, I quickly transitioned to a state of baked-good deprived and drooling macaroon-a-maniac as I hearkened back to a trip to Milwaukee’s Public Market about a month or so ago. The bakery there (C...Read More

1. Going-out to eat can be challenging, especially if you’re used to going to independently owned restaurants instead of chains.
2. It’s important to eat a lot of fiber and protein from sources like almonds. (Yes, almonds are high in fiber.)
3. This light and gluten free chicken recipe is delicious! You’ll especially like it if you like Indian food. (Don’t forget to make sure your spices are gluten free! All McCormick brand spices are.)
4. I haven’t lost any weight yet (after 3 months), but the gluten free diet is easier on my digestive system.
5. The new gluten free pizza crust at California Pizza Kitchen is very good. (Non-sponsored comment.)
6. It’s important to plan before going out to eat...Read More

Peter and I have been racking our brains when it comes to eating out gluten-free. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the offerings of some restaurants, but going out for Easter brunch presented a higher level challenge. Take into account that Chicagoland price points for Easter brunch seemed egg-cessive, and I was starting to wonder if I should have hammed-it-up at the grocery store.
Instead, we scrambled off the egg-beaten path of the wind whisked city, and headed north to Kenosha, Wisconsin and Twisted...Read More
I just made these “puddings” for dessert tomorrow night as we’re having guests over. They came out of the oven looking just like they do in the photo and smell delicious! I used 3 TBSP. butter as the conversion from grams. -All other measurements as stated. I also used lite coconut milk. The folding-in of the egg whites took a little time – be patient.Read More
