We visited PDQ way back before Christmas and now just finally wrote a post on them.  Right off the start, full disclosure, you will not find any gluten free friendly statement from PDQ on their website (http://www.eatpdq.com/) or in their restaurant.  We did find their Falls of Neuse location’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PDQFalls/posts/398763470199919) which referenced a […]

Utz Potato Stix

We love to find quick snacks as we travel.  We recently took a trip to Pilot Mountain (beautiful time with the leaves) and needed to stop for a quick snack.  Of course we headed into a Sheetz in Greensboro . We looked around, looking for a salty snack after all that hiking we did.  We […]

Kennywood–Western PA Amusement Park

Pittsburgh is home to many things, including a popular amusement park named Kennywood.  As a child, we would go there multiple times a summer.  During a recent trip to Pennsylvania, we took the girls for their first trip of roller coasters, wet rides, and dark rides.  As with any amusement park, Kennywood has all your […]

Chicken Nuggets–Better than Gluten Style

Recently we picked up Tyson’s chicken nuggets for the non-Celiacs and made gluten free nuggets for the Celiacs.  We used the recipe below, using GF Bisquick.  In looking at both, we could not believe how the gf nuggets actually LOOKED like pieces of chicken.  The Tyson’s…not quite so much… Reminded us of the Jamie Oliver […]

Ore Ida French Fry Labels

We always knew Ore-Ida brand potatoes (fries and tator tots) were gluten free.  We noticed, however, good labeling recently.  Can’t get much clearer than a big, red gluten-free on the label.  Good job, Ore-Ida and Heinz!

Chick-Fil-A Labeling

We recently stopped at the Chick-Fil-A off Falls of Neuse in North Raleigh.  We always feel pretty comfortable getting their waffle fries, since they fry them in their own dedicated friers to eliminate cross contamination.  We usually order a grilled chicken breast, sans bun, as well.  Until recently, I never said ‘for a food allergy.’  […]

Mustard? Let’s Not Be Silly Now…Lemon, That’s Different…

Anyone pick up on that quote?  Famous from Disney’s version of Alice in Wonderland.  So now we will take a look at mustard.  I could save you some time and say, don’t eat any of it, but that’s not fair.  I just do not care for it.  I do know many like it on a […]

Gluten Free Condiments

While maybe not the most exciting topic to cover, definitely a necessary one, as much uncertainty exists.  You would think one ketchup being gluten free, then they all would.  But then we introduce Catsup, different flavors of mustard, and light and regular mayonnaise.  Lots of room for confusion!  We will spend a few posts with this […]

Mickey D’s Gluten Free Menu

The most ubiquitous fast food restaurant can definitely help guide what all the other restaurants do.  In other words, if McDonald’s provides a comprehensive gluten-free menu, we can expect that from other restaurants as well.  You figure, over 70% (rough estimate) of the US lives within 5 miles of a McDonald’s.  And with the whole […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  Hope you are all enjoying some gluten-free turkey, fixins, and pumpkin pie!  We are definitely thankful for all the great web resources and knowledgeable people here in the Triangle that help make Celiac Disease for our girls very manageable. — We found a special recipe to make with your children for […]
