Luna's Living Kitchen Review

After passing through Charlotte, North Carolina several times in the past year (see reviews here), I have grown to love discovering new places to eat in this Southern city. When I began to make plans for my week-long spring break, I knew I would be passing through the city once again on my way to my aunt and uncle’s house in Hickory, North Carolina. Because I would be flying in late in […]

Top 5 Chain Restaurants and Top 5 Out-Of-State Restaurants of 2015

Since I am based in Orlando and Baltimore, my reviews disproportionately cover the two metropolitan areas. However, I cannot ignore the excellent restaurants I featured on the blog that don’t quite qualify as local to either city. In this restaurant round-up I want to give a shout out to both the big chain restaurants and independent out-of-town restaurants that made the year memorable.  This best-of list would be a good […]

Sabor Latin Street Grill Review

Due to circumstances beyond my control, my plans to spend Thanksgiving in Orlando were disrupted, sending me to North Carolina to be with my family there. Relishing the opportunity to cook and bake with my family, I did not get to do much restaurant exploration. Realizing that I’d have an opportunity to explore Charlotte, NC before flying out the next day, I decided to research gluten-free restaurants to check out. […]

Two Foodies Gluten-Free Kitchen Pizza Crust Mix

This review has been a long time coming. I first discovered Two Foodies Gluten-Free Kitchen back in March at the Gluten and Allergen Free Wellness Event in Charlotte, NC. At first bite, I knew I would be coming home with a box of pizza crust mix that would be put to the test in my own kitchen. What is really cool about Two Foodies, is that Jen and Chris, the […]

Maggiano's Little Italy Review

When it comes to dining out, I often shy away from major chains in favor of local restaurants and cafes with a proven record of accommodating guests with dietary restrictions.  However, in keeping my finger on the pulse of what’s going on in the world of dining out gluten-free, I cannot ignore the buzz around some big chain restaurants. Maggiano’s Little Italy is one such restaurant with nation-wide presence that I have heard […]

Gluten and Allergen Free Wellness Event Recap (Charlotte, NC)

My spring break was pretty darn good on the gluten-free front. Homecooked meals erased my week-to-week college survival struggles, and the opportunity to attend not one but two gluten-free expo events made me eat well and be super happy. The second of these two expos was the Charlotte Gluten and Allergen Free Wellness Event. Promising to bring together local and national brands, local practitioners, and expert speakers to educate and […]

Zoe's Kitchen Review

My trip to Charlotte, NC for the Gluten-Free and Allergen-Free Event was a jam-packed 48 hour period filled with a whole lot of gluten-free food, one horrible glutening, and having to change hotels mid-day on the day of the event.  Never one to let trip ups and slip ups get me down, my mom, sister, and I sought out a fun, low-key way to end our last night together before […]
