Want to be driven all around Columbus to be fed the most delicious gluten free desserts the city has to offer?
I thought so ;)

Columbus Food Adventures, an organization that gives awesome food tours around Columbus, has gone gluten free.

Their second gluten free tour is Saturday, September 24th beginning at 2:30 pm and tickets are $55.
(The first gf tour sold out so I'd recommend getting tickets fast if you're interested!)

You can find a more detailed description of the tour here but here's a rundown of the planned stops:
First stop is at Pistacia Vera, the "dessert boutique" located in German Village
Next up is the new Cherbourg Bakery, which is a gluten (and nut!) free facility, in Bexley.
Clintonville is the next stop for Food for Good Thought where they are dedicated to employing those with autism.
And what dessert tour would be complete without the delicious Jeni's Ice Cream and a Cameron Mitchell restaurant?!


Out of this entire list I've only been to Jeni's Ice Cream (which, if you haven't been there, oh. my. gosh. stop reading this, get in your car and drive. seriously it's that good). But I am anxious to try these other bakeries/restaurants!

I admire Columbus Food Adventures efforts to not only provide a gluten free tour but also in finding hidden gluten free gems!

For me, the price is a little high. But, I'm also a poor college student. :P So, unfortunately I will not be attending but I'd absolutely love love love to hear about your experience if you attend!

CFA also aims to provide gluten free options on their other tours as well. I'd love to try the taco truck tour!

Happy Friday!

As the cliche goes, it's the little things that make living worthwhile.

I'd say that's especially true for those of us with severe food allergies. 

Discovering a substitute product or recipe for an otherwise off limits food is such a great feeling.
That's why on vacation I was so happy to discover S'moreables from Kinnikinnick.
We'd have bonfires at night in my uncles backyard. We'd roast marshmallows and talk. But I was dying for a smore!
Luckily, I found S'moreables, a gluten free graham cracker, at Meijer!

These were so good that when I got back home, I wasn't ready to give up my nightly smore.
So I made them in my oven!

Messy & worth it!
Excuse the awful quality of my camera phone. (I use an EnV2, I know, it may as well have a cord. But I make up for it with my macbook pro and ipad!)

While I could not burn my marshmallows how I like, these smores were delicious and definitely satisfied my craving! Just make sure the chocolate and marshmallows you're using are gluten free as well! Also, I realize that this isn't an earth shattering or even original recipe, but I thought a lot of you would enjoy it! 
(Confession: I mostly just followed the directions on the back of the box!)


All I did was:
1. Put some foil down on a cookie sheet and preheat oven to 350.
2. Place cookies down on sheet. Technically you are to break them apart but these cookies are pretty small so I just used two whole cookies to make one smore. 
3. Add as many marshmallows and chocolate pieces as your heart desires. (Leave them open face)
4. Heat in oven for about 3 minutes. Mine were pretty soft so watch them closely, they heat up fast!
5. Remove from oven and use a knife or spatula to put one cookie on top of the other.
6. Prepare to get messy and...
7. Enjoy your wonderful gluten free smore!!


I'm dying to know, what's been your favorite gluten free discovery of an otherwise off-limits food?!

Many more posts to come this week!
Hope you're all enjoying your Thursday.
