One of the things I miss the most during this pandemic is connecting with the celiac community and networking with food brands in real life. In a normal year, I have usually been to at least two events by mid-February. While it is still not advised to meet with large groups in person, there are plenty of virtual events in the next few months where we can connect online. I am excited to share the following events with you.Continue reading
2021 started out unlike any year I’ve experienced before. I did not feel like celebrating a new year. Yes, I was glad to leave 2020 behind but was there really anything to celebrate entering a new year with almost 400,000 COVID deaths in the US? Then, on January 6th, there was an insurrection terrorist attack on our Nation’s Capitol. I sat in disbelief and tears while I watched the news. I couldn’t muster up wishing anyone a happy new year. From connecting with so many of you on social media, I know you felt the same way. I guess there is something comforting in sharing the discomfort of the world. I am here now to wish you a Happy February.Continue reading
I always tuck away ideas of great travel-related holiday gifts for gluten-free travelers. This year, most of us aren’t traveling so my gift guide looks a little bit different. More comfort food to enjoy at home while in quarantine, a few travel-related items, and even a celiac movie! I have also included some discount codes for you to use on your purchases.

This Thanksgiving is probably unlike any other Thanksgiving we’ve had in recent memory. The world feels upside-down right now. I feel like I am stuck in that movie Groundhog Day and I can’t move forward. The days are flying by but the actual forward momentum feels like I am walking in glue. I know so many of you can relate as you have shared via email, tweets, and direct messages. There is something strangely comforting in knowing I don’t feel alone.Continue reading
We all need something to look forward to these days. For me, I am starting early by trying to get into the holiday spirit. Normally, I would scoff at anyone putting out Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. But this year, I think we can agree that we all are craving some holiday cheer. Just today, I noticed my local business improvement district started putting up Christmas lights and this made me so happy.
