Recommendation: Gluten Free New York Cheesecake
Review: Cheesecake is one of those desserts I'm not too upset about not eating now that I eat gluten free. Don't get me wrong. I love cheesecake. But avoiding the fat and calories makes it an easy decision.
Unfortunately (wink, wink), my husband has made it his life's mission to make me the most awesome gluten free food. So on the 18th anniversary of our first date, I arrived home to some surprise dinner guests and a dessert that should have probably been served first, and taken the place of the main course.
It was the creamiest, tastiest, didn't taste like anyone took out the gluten, cheesecake I've ever had. It is my duty to share this recipe with you!

Recommendation: Bobo's Oat Bars - Maple Pecan
Review: It's hard to spend more than 5 hours with someone and not reveal that you eat gluten free. Inevitably eating options are discussed and my selection process and preferences quickly become noticeably different than everybody else's.
What makes me smile is when one of those people goes out of their way to accommodate my eating needs or remembers the next time they see me. And that's just how I found out about Bobo's Oat Bars. A talented woman named Maggie (I met her only once before in Seattle) brought me a new gluten free bar to try.
I used to be a granola junkie. Bars. On top of yogurt. With milk. I loved eating granola. The hearty, "oatie," filling bites of this super crunchy treat. All these memories came rushing back after eating the very dense and very enjoyable maple pecan flavored Bobo's Oat Bar.
