Gluten-Free Cheesecake Factory Menu Items 2012

I heard back from Cheesecake Factory today. It actually seems like they have quite a few options for us. I have no idea whether they’re really safe or not (I would bet cross-contamination runs pretty rampant in that kitchen).

Gluten-Free on the New Cheesecake Factory Menu??

Well, it‘s that time of year again. My best friend just loves the Cheesecake Factory, so I’m off to another birthday bash next week. So I was just trying to figure out if there was anything I would dare order this year. (I chickened out last year because I didn’t want to get sick). Turns […]

That night, as I paged through the beautiful full-color photogrpahs of beautiful baked goods, I told my husband “Forget BAKING these…. I want to get on a plane to New […]

Edamame at Pei Wei

The other day when our family went to Pei Wei, we ordered the edamame and forgot to say it “gluten free” when we ordered. (We actually totally forgot to order the edamame and my husband went back and ordered it after we’d already sat down, which is what caused the confusion.) So when the plate […]
