By Regan Olson

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.
