Camping Gluten, Dairy and Dye-Free

Camping Gluten, Dairy and Dye-Free

When I first went gluten and dairy free, it was hard to imagine taking my new GFCF lifestyle on the road. Everything seemed so overwhelming at first. Now after five years, I’ve transitioned all our essential recipes/dishes and treats to gluten and dairy free. For the most part, we don’t miss the gluten or dairy and camping is no exception. One of my strategies is to make dishes that everyone can eat including my older kids who are still gluten and dairy consumers. One day, I’ll convert them but meanwhile choosing meals that are naturally gluten and dairy free helps...

Mariposa Gluten Free Bakery – OMGoodness

Mariposa Gluten Free Bakery – OMGoodness

This post is long over due. Mariposa Bakery has been our favorite destination for several years now. Being a lover of french baguette back in the “gluten days,” I was ecstatic to discover Mariposa’s gluten-free, vegan baguette. It’s not a direct replacement for french baguette, but go off of bread for several years and this gluten-free baguette will light up our life! Mariposa has two locations. The main bakery is in Oakland off of Telegraph Avenue. This bakery actually has sit down dining which is nice. Sammy and I take our dairy-free cream cheese (Tofutti is our...

Local Gluten Free Chef, Amy Fothergill

Going gluten and dairy free (GFCF) can seem overwhelming at first. For me, it was a major lifestyle change and just when I got my feet on the ground and found a new “eating grove,” I was faced with entertaining. The dilemma…do I make separate meals (something for my guest and then a gluten and dairy free version for myself) or do I subject my guests to eating gluten and dairy free food. Unfortunately, many mainstream eaters have a negative perception of gluten free food so I’ve been afraid to taint the spirit of my dinner party with “gluten free food...

OMGoodness – Jules Thin Crust Pizza – Restaurant Review

OMGoodness – Jules Thin Crust Pizza – Restaurant Review

Jules Thin Crust pizza in Danville (located in the Livery) is our favorite gluten free pizza place. I love everything about this pizzeria experience. It has a clean modern decor with a nice dining area. They use green products to clean the tables and have recycle and compost waste options. The staff is always friendly and Heather, the owner, treats you like a good friend when you arrive…. Their pizza topping options are some of the most unique I’ve ever seen. My favorite is Meat Pie #4, “Kim’s pie,” with Hormone-free roasted chicken, portobello mushroom,...

Cinnamon Donut Muffins – Recipe Review

Cinnamon Donut Muffins – Recipe Review

Cinnamon Donut Muffins- Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Back in my “gluten days” I used to make scrumptious mini cinnamon muffins on an occasional Sunday morning for brunch. They were great to take to family gatherings. Stuffed in a cute basket with a pretty napkin, guests would gobble them up. I made them in a mini muffin pan so they were easy to pop in the mouth and had a wonderful cinnamon toast flavor to them. After going gluten and dairy free (GFCF), I often thought about these muffins and missed having the option to make them. Well, you can imagine my...
