I have had a lot of requests for information about eating out.  It can be tough.  While there are food allergen lists out there for several places, many are not updated and change as the establishment changes distributors.

Making gluten free dinner last night, I realized that over the years I have implemented several gluten free penny pinchers.  We all know that Gluten Free products can be costly, so making the best use of those products is essential.  We pay a nice price for a good slice of gluten free bread.  I want […]
