Dear Marketing Stop Being Dicks to Gluten Free People

Hey Party City, I’m Not Gross

God. I hate writing these blog posts. I’m in San Francisco right now and I’m sick. Not metaphorically sick of the fact that brands keep making fun of us, but like literally sick. Like blowing my nose into Boogie Wipes that are made for snotty sick kids, stuffing my face with Sudafed. But I’m here… Continue reading »

Drag Queen Bingo at La Gattara Cat Cafe

Drag Queen Bingo at La Gattara Cat Cafe

Drag Queen Bingo at the La Gattara Cat Cafe is pretty much exactly what it sounds like – bingo, played with cats at a cat cafe, with drag queens. Now, there’s no show – just a lively game of bingo where you can bring you own food and drinks (as long as they don’t interfere… Continue reading »

Schar Table Crackers making Christmas Crack

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Christmas Crack

As a kid, I had never heard of Christmas Crack. In fact, I’d never tasted anything like this recipe before. I’ve never melted butter and brown sugar before in a sauce pan and tasted the liquid gold that’s produced from combining this sugar and fat together. It’s dangerous. Dangerously good. Yes, I understand that Christmas… Continue reading »

Canyon Bakehouse Stay-Fresh Packaging

Canyon Bakehouse Stay-Fresh Packaging

I’m pretty excited about Canyon Bakehouse‘s brand new innovation, their STAY-FRESH packaging! Their bread and bagels will stay fresh in this packaging 90 days from when it was packaged in their bakery! And I have a chance to try it out, since I received it at least 30 days ago – and have not put… Continue reading »

#NimaTested #NimaApproved Holiday Treats

Nima Sensor Test Gluten-Free Holiday Treats #CATBHoliday

This holiday season, I rely a lot on my Nima, the gluten-free sensor. I purchased my Nima and all the capsules, but I’m also an affiliate of Nima and they are a paid sponsor of Celiac and the Beast.

Have a SAFE Gluten-Free Halloween 2017

I’ve written about the Teal Pumpkin Project® for years and I’m a huge supporter of FARE for starting a movement to include food-allergic (and even celiac) kids into Halloween. I can’t even imagine being a kid again and going door to door, but not being able to eat a thing. Or getting pillowcases full of… Continue reading »

Is the Starbucks Maple Pecan Latte Gluten Free?

Is Starbucks Maple Pecan Latte Gluten Free?

Starbucks just launched their newest seasonal latte, the Starbucks Maple Pecan latte. I love maple AND I love pecan, so clearly I was excited to try this. When I tested the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte, it came up as safe on the Nima , and Nima themselves even found it to be safe, so I… Continue reading »

Fair Oaks Farm #FarmInsight17

Meeting Your Meat: A Farm Tour with IFICF #FarmInsight17

I recently was asked to come on a farm press trip with the International Food Information Council Foundation (the lovely people behind FoodInsight.org). Naturally, I like exploring things that are new to me – and traditional farming is definitely not something I’m well-versed in, or something I even have the appropriate clothing for. So I… Continue reading »

Go Beyond Celiac

Go Beyond Celiac Digital Community

I was a part of something really magical in 2015, but it took me this long to tell you about it. Why? I couldn’t really share with you all the exciting things NFCA (now Beyond Celiac) had planned until now. Because the people at Beyond Celiac have been hard at work since those meetings in… Continue reading »
