Gluten-Free Guest Chef Bob Aungst at The Bistro on Park Avenue Review

Because of my dairy-free constraint, my courses came out in a different order than the menu shows. Because the risotto cakes were not dairy-free, Chef Bob brought out my salad course first to allow for a custom dairy-free risotto to be freshly cooked once I got there. Those who read my blog know that I’m usually not a big salad fan, but I must give Chef Bob full credit for crafting […]

Event Preview and Giveaway: Living Without's Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest

When it comes to being gluten-free, there’s nothing that I love more than connecting others who share the unique experience of having dietary restrictions. While I have had opportunities here and there to meet up with and make friends with other gluten/dairy free folks and fellow bloggers, I have been waiting for an local opportunity to come along. Sure enough, my wish for a Central Florida based gluten-free event that aligned with […]

FARE's Teal Pumpkin Project

This Friday is a big holiday for kids young and old: Halloween! While there are many ways to join in on the fun from costume contests to candy galore, there are nasty tricks to many treats that could ruin all the fun for kids with food allergies, sensitivities, intolerances, and other dietary restrictions. This year, advocates, parents, and communities alike are banding together and giving Halloween a teal-tinged makeover to raise awareness of these […]

Peak Season Pops Review

Let’s just face it: Florida is miserable this time of year. No matter how many times we grin and bear it, the inferno-like heat, choking humidity, pesky bugs, unreliable weather patterns, and other staples of a sunshine state summer can get just too much to bear. The perfect (if temporary) antidote? Popsicles.  Orlando is home to many different “pop shops” featuring icy creations that range from the familiar to more […]

After discovering the magic of food trucks in Philly a couple months ago, I have been yearning to check out the Central Florida food truck scene which is quite varied and active. As it has […]
