The Piping Gourmets

Founders Leslie and Carolyn began The Piping Gourmets and production of their delicious Whoopie Pies to fill a void that they saw in the gluten free dessert market. Locally based out of Miami, the desserts are not only gluten free (yay!), but also vegan, kosher, and non-gmo. With a variety of flavors, these individually wrapped whoopie pies are a game changer.

Gluten Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Banana Bread

I am a huge lover of banana bread. Whenever I buy bananas, they always seem to be covered in brown spots before I get around to eating them, I kinda wonder if subconsciously I let them get that way on purpose. Once they start to turn brown, it means it is time to make banana bread.

4 Gluten Free Friendly Restaurants with Kid Friendly Menus

Gluten Free Friendly Restaurants with Kid Friendly Menus can be a hard to find, but they are out there!

Gluten Free Friendly Restaurants

The search for kid friendly restaurants with gluten free options.

If your family is anything like mine, they occasionally like to go out to eat, but eating out with my one year old can be quite a challenge. She is not gluten free, and there is nothing she likes more than throwing her gluten-encrusted dinner all over me. She has glutened me on more than one occasion. When she is with me I really need her to eat gluten free, she doesn’t need a sick mama. I started thinking,

Are there any places I would want to take my daughter that have gluten free menus for kids?

Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookies

The cry for gluten free girl scout cookies has been answered! Ok, so it may have been answered a year or two ago, but this is the first chance I’ve had to try these Toffee-Tastic cookies. It is not for lack of trying. I have looked. Every time I see the girl scouts out in front of a store, I stop, but no one has them. Last night, fate shone down upon me. I met a girl scout who was selling the gluten free girl scout cookies at my gluten free support group.

Gluten Free for Life Expo

The 5th Annual Gluten-Free Expo

If you live in Florida, you do not want to miss the 5th annual Gluten-Free for Life Expo in St. Petersburg, Florida. This one day event will take place on March 26th.  The expo is a fun-filled family event designed to provide education and awareness of Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance. There will be vendors, raffles, face painting for the kids, and great speakers and teachers. This years Expo is shaping up to be an awesome event and I am beyond excited to have a part in it as a blog sponsor! I cannot wait to be in a place where everything is gluten-free and I won’t have to explain what Celiac is 100 times. I love educating people, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to relax (and try samples without worrying!).

BFree Gluten-Free Bread Review

BFree Gluten-Free Bread Review

When BFree Foods contacted me to try out some samples of their gluten-free bread products I was extremely excited. I absolutely love trying out new products. It was not a brand I was familiar with, but after some research I saw that their products are currently available in Europe and just beginning to make their way into the United States.

The great thing about BFree gluten-free bread products is that not only is it all gluten-free, it is dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, and nut-free, and non-gmo. There are also low sugar and high fiber options available. Bread, wraps, bagels and dinner rolls, there is something for everyone!

All the products have a long shelf life and are best stored in the freezer until use.

{Gluten-Free} Beer-Infused Strawberry Shortcakes with Fresh Whipped Cream

Paired with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, these beer-infused cakes are a delicious treat!

{Gluten-Free}Beer Infused Strawberry Shortcake

It is strawberry season here….yes, I said strawberry season. While everyone up north is freezing, down here in South Florida we are just beginning to harvest. U-pick farms will open soon and there will be an abundance of sweet, ripe strawberries.

You may be wondering…

Why would you put beer in a Strawberry Shortcake?

Normally, I wouldn’t, but awhile back I was in the midst of taste testing gluten-free beers for the 8 Gluten-Free Beers to Celebrate Oktoberfest post and I came across New Planet’s Blonde Ale. I had already planned to use one of the beers for a recipe, and had been thinking brownies, but the crisp sweet taste of the Blonde Ale made me think dessert and I wanted to use it. I remembered I had a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Vanilla Cupcake mix sitting in the pantry and a thought of genius struck me. Why not use the beer to make the cupcakes? No one is paying me for this idea (though if they wanted to I would not refuse!), it was just a light bulb moment. I originally tried out these cupcakes in October, but I wanted to wait until strawberries were in season to share!
