Gluten-Free Restaurants in Austin, Texas

Hi everyone!  I made a list of our favorite gluten-free restaurants in Austin, Texas.  It’s really nice to live in a city with so many options! I’m super sensitive to cross-contamination so gluten friendly or gluten free-ish places didn’t really work for me.  But lately I’ve been impressed with how knowledgeable chefs and staff are and how easy it is to safely eat out.  And...

Gluten-Free BBQ in Austin, Texas

Hi everyone!  I made a list of our favorite gluten-free BBQ spots in Austin, Texas.  Luckily, BBQ and most sides are usually great options for gluten-free eats.  Beware of any BBQ sauce made with beer or soy sauce.  But most rubs are either salt and pepper or spice based and shouldn’t contain any wheat.  Always ask, though.

The Weekly Menu April 18, 2016

Hi friends! So this is always my favorite time of the year! I love April and spring and it’s my birthday month, but most of all I love the Austin Food and Wine Festival. We’ve been going to this event before it became “this event” (it used to be local before C3 took it to the next level) and way before I ever knew anything...
