    Restaurant Review: Buttered Tin

    by  • October 30, 2013 • Restaurant Reviews • 3 Comments

    Daily special hash with smoked trout at The Buttered Tin in St. Paul. Read the full review on TwinCitiesGlutenFree.com

    On this dreary October evening, with our first *gasp* snow in the forecast, I am remembering a sunny Sunday morning about six weeks ago, lolling around on the sidewalk as we waited our turn at a quaint table at The Buttered Tin in downtown St. Paul.  Lovely wait and worth it! I had an...

    Dessert Review: Cupcake

    by  • July 27, 2013 • Dessert Reviews • 0 Comments

    Moist, rich Michelle Obama cupcake at Cupcake on University Ave. in Minneapolis. Also enjoy macarons (all GF) and a GF Lemon Blueberry cupcake.

    Cupcake is a delightful little coffeeshop, bakery and light meal location on University Ave. in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis.  Bryce and I popped over there tonight to enjoy a cupcake each.  I ordered the Michelle Obama, a GF fudgey delight with a moist cake and almost too-rich-to-handle frosting.  That said, I’m not...

    Dessert Review: Groundswell Coffee

    by  • July 24, 2013 • Dessert Reviews • 1 Comment

    Gluten free cupcake from Groundswell Coffee at Hamline and Thomas, St. Paul. Light and delicious.

    After two people recommended it in the last week, I picked up a GF cupcake from Groundswell Coffee on Hamline and Thomas in St. Paul’s Midway area tonight.  Swanky!  An industrial feel, this place looks like it serves great coffee.  I have sadly sworn off coffee, as it has decided it is my new...

    Cold Stone Creamery review on Twin Cities Gluten Free

    (Kelli’s note:  Please help me in welcoming my husband Bryce aboard as an author!  Even though he doesn’t eat exclusively GF himself, he’s got a pretty good idea of the routine and eats a good amount of GF food himself by virtue of connection.  Now that he’s on board as an author you can...

    Restaurant Review: Good Earth

    by  • October 29, 2012 • Restaurant Reviews • 4 Comments

    Turtle Bar

    It’s been a while since I went to Good Earth (in Roseville, second location in Edina), even though I love it there. You see, before I went off gluten, I couldn’t digest lots of fruits and veg, including spinach, broccoli, apples, basil (ok, any dark leafy green), oranges, and tons more.  And since pretty...

    Restaurant Review: Café Latté

    Café Latté Cake

    Café Latté in St. Paul, an upscale cafeteria-style establishment with pizza and wine bar, has been a standby of ours for years!  It was a huge blow to my dessert psyche when I went GF and thought I’d never have turtle cake pass my lips again. Not to despair:  Deep Chocolate Flourless Torte is...

    Product Review: Bittersweet Bakery Cookies

    Bittersweet Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie

    I went scrapbooking last weekend with my mom’s quilt group.  Being a bevy of strangers potlucking it, I wasn’t sure what to expect food-wise.  I needn’t have worried, all the crafters were familiar with gluten free, so there was sympathy.  However, they had found out I was coming at the last minute, so they’d...
