What To Give the Gluten-Free Grief Stricken

gluten_free_gift

I actually somewhat cooked last night for the first time in forever because grief makes you somewhat non-functional. Which is why the tradition of bringing food to those who have had a tragic loss is such a great one. Also, food is awesome, as I discovered yet again when my amazing friends and community mitzvah meal’d, sent loads of See’s candies, and even had a chef prepare amazing gluten-free gourmet meals. Yes, I am #blessed to have people in my life who are ready and willing to take care of gluten-free me and my people in my hungry household.

3 Ways to Enjoy Your Favorite Gluten-Free Snack Bar (Also, GIVEAWAY!)


There was a period of my life where I decided the best way to fuel up between running hither and yon was to chow on Luna bars and drink Vitamin water. While I’ve since balanced out my life (my eating life, anyway), I have missed the delicious Luna S’mores bar ever since my celiac diagnosis, aka, the darkest day in the history of my waffle maker.

Those dark days just got a little bit brighter, folks.

It’s totally true that Luna Bars are now 100% gluten-free! All of them! Yep, you can get your Lemon Zest, your Chocolate Cupcake, your Iced Oatmeal Raisin ALL GLUTEN-FREE. Do you know how you know your Luna is GF? There’s this adorbs pink circle on every package saying so. BAM.

Gluten-Free Los Angeles: Grand Central Market

gluten-free-los-angeles-grand-central-marketI don’t know about you guys, but I’ve started the official eating season off with a bang. I’ll be putting my vegan’ness on a part-time schedule, as there is much dairy and meat to be had. Much. Gluten-free mac and cheese, I’m talking to you.

I discovered even more goodness last Friday when the family decided to be adventurous and head outside of our neighborhood. Hey, it’s LA. It’s not easy to explore. I mean, unless you have a car. Which we do. Nevermind. Let’s just say I left my neighborhood and found some things.

Entertaining Your Gluten Eating Guests

Do you know what’s super fun? Having a house load of guests that you love. Lots of eating, laughing and of course, karaoke. But you know what’s not awesome? When you’re gluten-free and you’re secretly worried about what everyone will think since you’re serving gluten-free bread and stuffs.

Luckily, I have amazoids friends and family and even more luckily I’m super into saving my intestines so I won’t be serving up any gluten in my kitchen. (Bringing it in, and keeping it segregated is kind of okay, I just won’t be the one slicing up those bagels.) Still, as the only person who has to eat gluten-free, I want to make damn sure everyone is too busy stuffing their faces to notice what may or may not be in their breakfast. Also, I try to get everyone liquored up so aren’t as concerned about the food. That’s a pro tip, and you are welcome.

So here’s what I whipped up with visitors in town. Easy, breezy, yummy in all the gluten-y tummies. Continue reading

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Coconut Pie is Yum

gluten-free-dairy-free-chocolate-pieI love pie, ya’ll. I don’t love making it so much since that whole crust thing gets in the way.

Which is what I just did here with this one. Also, I did it without dairy*. What? I KNOW. Continue reading

Gluten-Free Chuck E. Cheese ‘Cuz It’s Chucktober!

gluten-free-chuck-e-cheese

Okay, so this pizza is not gluten-free. But how cute is this????

Happy Chucktober everybody! Oh, you didn’t know that was a thing? IT IS. And I think my kids might have been the first to celebrate at the Burbank Chuck E. Cheese because they were so excited to see us wander in dressed like crazy people. Or maybe everyone at the Burbank Chuck E. Cheese is just way nicer than the one we used to go to in Brooklyn. 100% possible. Get it together, Atlantic Center.

Either way, when my kids walked into Chuck E. all dressed in costume they were greeted like skee ball champions with unlimited tokens. Which, they kind of were. You see, Chuck E. Cheese reached out to me about this promotion going on all over the nation in October—kids wear costumes, kids get 50 free tickets. Tickets which kids can trade for toys and candy that makes them lose their little minds. But I had another reason for wanting to go and write about Chucktober. A reason beyond going home with a ton of Fun Dip.

I’ve written about gluten-free parties for kids before in both my first book, and I also recommend Chuck E. Cheese as a fun gf spot in my upcoming book as well. It’s because of this – Continue reading
