Be a Rad Gluten-Free Party Guest, Why Don’t Ya’?


When I go to a party I try to bring amazoids gluten-free snacks and leave my piss poor attitude at home. After all, I’m a fun gal. Are you heading out to a shingdig this weekend? A par-tay? A good time? I certainly hope you are, but even if you aren’t, you will require snacks in the next few days, right?

Just last weekend I was invited to a birthday party that involved a Family Feud tournament and cleverly named cocktails (Regis Phil-Gin & Tonic, anyone?) and I came armed with food to soak up the gluten-free booze I was about to consume. But the goal is not only to have porous snacks in your gut, but to also impress others with gluten-free deliciousness. Which is why I busted out my gluten-free peanut butter pretzel buckeyes and my all-time favorite lemon ricotta basil cheese dip with the best damn gluten-free bagel chips you’ll ever eat. In fact, I’ll even go out on a limb and declare gluten-free bagel chips better than those gluten-filled types.

That’s right, I said it.

Here’s what you should shovel onto those bchips.

  1. Love the dip recipe! Maybe my picky kid will even like it, which would be helpful to my life. And I agree about the bagel chips! Glutino brand, right? I nearly freaked out at a family function when they put them out in front of my daughter until I saw the package.
