Gluten-Free Chicago: Before the Expo (Pt. 1)

Many moons ago, before I started Celiac and the Beast, I scheduled a trip for two to Chicago to see one of my best friends and former coworker. She has been living out there for several months, and I haven’t had a chance to escape away from a very busy work schedule – but April… Continue reading »
