The holidays are over, warm weather still seems like it’s lightyears away, and everything just seems kind of… gray. Yes, we are in that gloomy period of January through March, and if you ask me, that means it’s time for a weekend getaway to break things up! While it would be nice to escape to somewhere warm and sunny (sunshine!? What’s that!?), there’s something really nice about a cold weather trip, too – fireplaces, comfort food, lots of reading and hot coffee. If you’re from the Boston area o...

Happy Friday, everyone! We are BACK from a little blogging hiatus (holiday craziness, anyone!?) and we’re getting back in the swing of things with some Free-From Favorites. I got back on Monday from a long weekend spent exploring Washington, D.C. and Silver Spring, MD and have been enjoying a much-needed quiet week at home filled with The Bachelor (unsure about Arie so far), movie night at Julia’s (lots and lots of cheese accompanied by The Wrestler), and of course lots of gluten free goodies (m...

Living in the Boston area, Canada has always been one of my favorite places to visit for a quick getaway. Boston is within relatively easy driving distance to Montreal, Quebec City, and our latest travel destination, Mont-Tremblant. I’ve visited all three cities at least once within the last year or two, so I decided to combine the three and do a more comprehensive QC Gluten Free post!

Montreal, QC, Canada

Ahhh, Montreal! There is beautiful architecture, amazing foliage, a chance to practice your...

I love, love, love October Fridays. There’s something about a chill in the air (if it would stop being hot in Boston, anyway), sipping a hot coffee, and knowing you have a weekend ahead full of fall. I don’t know about you guys, but my fall weekends so far have involved apple picking, candy corn, spooky movies, and lots and lots of PUMPKIN! This week, I’m sharing my gluten free Fall favorites, which all happened to take the form of something pumpkin-related 😉

                          Walking through Boston’s North End, I’m always struck by how much it feels like not Boston. Not Italy exactly, but some weird middle ground between Italy and Boston. I’m also struck by all of the cafes (cappuccino, anyone?), pastry shops, and little Italian restaurants – all of which I have always felt pretty sure I couldn’t eat at, despite having not tried or really done any research.  Of course, much lik...

I’ve mentioned my love for homemade gluten free pizza before (I use the Minimalist Baker’s recipe), and we almost always stick to the same toppings (tried and true – see the recipe here!). This past weekend, we decided to try something a little bit different. One of our favorite restaurants, Wicked, used to have a location in Dedham that we frequented, but it recently closed. Our favorite pizza there was the Autumn Butternut Squash pizza, and we have been craving it for months. Finally, we decid...

Indian food can be tricky for those of us with Celiac Disease, since many of the dishes contain some form of gluten or are simply served with a gluten-filled side (naan!). Even though a lot of the traditional Indian entrees are naturally gluten free, I’ve found that there is very little awareness of Celiac/Gluten Free dining in general at a lot of Indian restaurants, which always feels tricky with cross-contamination. About a month ago, a rainy Friday had me craving some warm takeout, and I came...

I’ve gotten asked a number of my times what my favorite place we visited in Ireland was – no hesitation, it was Dingle. The Dingle Peninsula was a few hours’ drive from Galway – a few hours worth of fearing for our lives down narrow roads on the edge of cliffs that drop straight into the Atlantic. No big deal 😉 Aside from the fearing-for-our-lives bit, the drive was absolutely stunning. On our first night in Dingle, we took the scenic Slea Head Drive. Slea Head is the reason Dingle is our favor...
