Sometimes you just need some cookies. Soft, chewy, melt in your mouth cookies. Even when you’re sugar-free. Yes, it can still be done…it just takes a little more creativity.

I just got a notice in my email announcing that Breakaway Bakery is now offering online ordering. Breakaway Bakery is located in Los Angeles, CA, and is a certified organic bakery that specializes in baked goods and breads with NO gluten, NO wheat, NO dairy, NO casein, peanuts, soy or treenuts (vegan options available).
I was in Ithaca, NY, recently for a conference and had the chance to try out gluten-free dining at several restaurants. I was pretty nervous going in, since there weren’t any of my old favorite chain restaurants nearby. But I’m happy to report that I was pleased at the options available. Everyone I talked to seemed to understand gluten-free and there were already systems in place. There wasn’t a single place where we caught them by surprise and had to go into a lengthy explanation. Bravo, Ithaca!
I saw an interesting article on Celiac.com today:
Basically, it said that in a recent study, people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity reported more severe physical reactions to gluten than did diagnosed celiacs. However, both groups reported a wide range of psychological reactions.
