Gluten Free Rice Krispies Treats!

Gluten Free Rice Krispies Treats!  It's real!  Kellog's has come through.  Beware, not all supermarkets carry this gluten free cereal that you can easily turn into the most delicious gluten free treat.  Make sure you speak with managers, fill out requests for Kellog's gluten free rice crispy cereal, and even write to headquarters offices - it's worth it.

Most Romantic Gluten Free Pizza & Gelato in the WORLD

In Florence, Italy, of course!  Le Botteghe di Donatello is a godsend. While on a Mediterranean cruise, we had a day stop in Florence - and I had to have Gluten Free Pizza in Italy!!  I am ecstatic to have found this delicious magical place.  They have indoor and outdoor seating - outdoor is more scenic and fun so we sat outside.  What's amazing is on their outside gigantic menu, is a BIG MENU GLUTEN FREE sign!!

Zonin Creates a Magical Italian Culinary Experience

Italy in a glass of wine - Zonin
Casa Vinicola Zonin paired up with the Ritz Carlton at Miami Dade's Culinary Institute and created an Italian Culinary Experience.  It was a lot of fun, and a lot of great Prosecco and wine.  All courses were not gluten-free - Celiac's were not the intended audience, it was more about the decadent wine pairings and Ritz showing off their chefs capabilities to the audience. 

Check out this layout, Miami-Dade offered their awesome venue, the kitchen was the main stage, and all attendees had our own sinks and a great view.

Trapiche Room at JW Marriott - Sensory Overload

The Trapiche Room
The Trapiche Room is an intimate fine dining Mediterranean restaurant at the JW Marriott in Miami.  Luckily, it also participates in Miami Spice from August 1 to September 30, giving diners an appetizer, entree and desert for $19 for lunch and $33 for dinner.  Lunch is offered fro Mon-Fri and dinner is offered from Tues-Sat.  This is not a quick meal - don't expect to be in an out in an hour, not that kinda place.

I was there for lunch. Service is unbelievable.  I advised my server I was gluten-free and recalled JW Marriott being very accommodating.  I asked if there was gluten-free bread.  He immediately checked and brought back warm gluten-free goodness.  It's a rarity to have gluten-free bread at a restaurant, I cherish these moments!!
