Eat Pastry Cookie Dough

My friend Hilary and I were perusing for Whole Foods, primarily looking for some Sharkies electrolyte gummies for my long runs, when we stumbled into her favorite section: cookie dough.  I was used to having this be totally off-limits for me so you can imagine my surprise when we found a vegan, gluten free cookie dough on the shelf!

Eat Pastry is a line of vegan cookie dough; the company also makes a gluten free chocolate chunk flavor, pictured above.  Hilary and I decided to give it a whirl to check it out.  I had never before seen a gluten free cookie dough available on the shelves and was excited to check it out.

When we went home we immediately set out to make the cookies.  They were very simple to make, just as prepared cookie dough should be.  We placed them on a cookie sheet (surprisingly not pink, given Hilary's assortment of pink kitchen products) and 15 minutes later the cookies were ready to come out of the oven.

The cookies were good!  They were tasty and and not at all grainy or strangely textured, as many gluten free cookies can be.  I appreciated the ease of baking them.  While using a mix isn't that much more difficult, as someone who doesn't eat eggs it is sometimes frustrating to buy a dozen eggs for one simple recipe.  I often experiment with applesauce as an egg replacement but haven't yet honed that to perfection.  That being said, these cookies are a simple vegan and gluten-free product that can quickly prepare you for friends coming over.  The cookie dough provided a good number of cookies and was very simple to form and bake on the sheet.

Check back soon for a post on another gluten free cookie dough mix -- Hilary and I found both in one visit to Whole Foods!

Bisquick Gluten Free Giveaway

I was recently contacted by MyBlogSpark about participating in a review and giveaway for my readers of Bisquick's new gluten free mix.  Obviously I jumped at the opportunity!  I was very excited when I received my package; it was heavier than I thought it would be when I first picked it up.  When I opened it and was greeted by a cast iron pan the weight was justified.  I had forgotten that they were including it in the package along with a "pancake pen" and spatula -- what a great surprise!  The sample, prize pack, and giveaway were all provided by Bisquick through MyBlogSpark.

Unfortunately I'm not a good cook so I enlisted the help of my friend Chris.  I know, I know, pancakes aren't the most difficult item to make but isn't it true that food is better when somebody else prepares it for you?  This was definitely the case with the chocolate chip pancakes that Chris and I made using the Bisquick gluten free mix.

For the chocolate chips we used Ralph's brand of semi sweet chocolate chips.  They were perfect because they were marked "A Gluten Free Food"!  I've seen the marking on other products before but was glad to see it again.  I don't do much of my shopping at Ralph's anymore because I live closer to a Pavilions so it was a pleasant surprise.

The pancakes were a bit difficult to prepare; our first batch didn't come out as well as our second match.  There seems to be some uneven distribution on my stove-top  Sadly it is also electric so it generally is not as good as a flame, in my opinion.  The pancakes didn't brown as easily as gluten-filled pancakes did, but we quickly noticed that due to the uneven distribution we had to rotate the pan along the burner.  Regardless of how they cooked, Chris and I devoured the pancakes.  He paid what I think is the highest compliment: "These don't taste gross or fake."  I agreed that they were excellent but it's been years since I had "real" pancakes so my comparison may be a bit off.

Overall, Chris and I had a great experience baking with Bisquick's gluten free mix.  The mix yields a lot of silver dollar pancakes (we easily made 10 using one cup of mix and the required additions).  I'm excited to test out the pancakes again on my own to see if I can replicate our success.  I'm also looking forward to exploring some of the recipes on the product's website.

Again, the product and giveaway were both given to me by MyBlogSpark.  On that note, the contest!  Check out all the different recipes Bisquick has posted using its mix here.  If you were to win, which recipe would you try?  Note that the giveaway comes with a box of Bisquick's gluten free mix, a spatula, a pancake pen, and a cast iron pan -- exactly what I received and a great bundle for your pancake-making needs.  Leave a comment below along with your name and e-mail address to enter.  That's it!  It's as simple as that.  This contest will run until November 2nd at 5pm PDT.

Warning for Gluten Free Runners

Or a warning for those who think going gluten free is a sure-fire way to improve your running.  Runner's World has just written an article warning people about the dangers of going gluten free for the supposed "health benefits."  It can often sap you of the complex carbohydrates, nutrients, and minerals that your body needs to run.

Check out the full article here.  Thanks for posting it Lindsey!  I'll write a more in depth analysis of the article later.  Leaving on a trip today!

Treats from Mariposa

Check it out -- my friend Sarah was up in San Francisco this past weekend and brought me back some gluten free treats from Mariposa!

I know the picture isn't great... in fact it is horrendous.  Blame Apple's reluctance to release the iPhone on Verizon!  I'm stuck with an embarrassingly outdated Blackberry.  Call the waaaaambulance for me.  Despite the picture, the treat was delicious!  It's called a "penguino" and is gluten free and vegan.

Sarah also brought me back some garlic Crostini... I'll be sampling them tonight with dinner tonight at Fritto Misto.

If you find yourself in San Francisco, I definitely recommend that you check out Mariposa.  They have gluten free breads, desserts, and great coffe cakes available.  You can also order from them if you don't live locally.

Leaf Restaurant in Boulder

After spending the day walking along Pearl Street and avoiding intermittent rain in Boulder, my parents and I went about finding a suitable restaurant for dinner.  My mother came prepared with an entire list of restaurants, of course, and the one that most appealed to me was Leaf Restaurant.  Multiple people recommended that we check out The Med and while it looked great, we were all looking forward to a more unique dining experience.

Leaf Restaurant is entirely vegetarian.  The restaurant also has a healthy serving of raw items on its menu and is extremely knowledgeable about gluten free options.  The restaurant itself is small so I would certainly recommend having a reservation.  Even if you don't, however, don't fear!  The restaurant next door, Aji, is owned by the same person/people/entity as Leaf and when it was apparent my party of three wouldn't be seated in under an hour the friendly hostess offered to seat us in Aji while being served food from Leaf.

The atmospheres at Aji and Leaf are quite different; Aji has a much more vibrant color palette (suitable for its Latin American cuisine) while Leaf employs subdued earth tones in its decorations.  Admittedly it was a bit strange to eat in Aji while eating Leaf's food, but it was a great option for us as we had exhausted our Boulder to-do list and were ready to eat.

Regardless of where we sat, the food was incredible and the staff was super helpful.  I ordered the raw lasagna, made with zucchini and summer squash "noodles," spinach, mushrooms, broccoli, tomatoes, marinara, and cashew ricotta.  I should have taken a picture but, for some reason, resisted.  The presentation was spectacular.  The lasagna came out in an almost perfect square shape and looked beautiful.

Of course I'm sure you're asking, "But how did it taste?!"  It was magnificent.  I originally didn't gravitate to this option because it mentioned "noodles;" in fact the noodles were very thinly sliced zucchini and summer squash so the dish was totally gluten free.  The vegetables tasted fresh, the portion was pretty large, and the cashew ricotta was unbelievably tasty.  I really could not tell that there was no dairy in the cheese.  It was also used to perfection in the dish, which didn't include too much or too little of cheese.

For dessert I chose the flourless chocolate cake.  There isn't much to say... I didn't love the dish.  It was extremely dense and not that delicious.

Regardless of the disappointing dessert, I would definitely recommend Leaf Restaurant to the discerning Celiac, vegan, or vegetarian.  The menu is large, the options are varied, and the food was delicious.  At worst, you can always skip dessert at the restaurant and pick up your favorite dessert from the local Whole Foods.

The Kitchen

While visiting Denver my parents and I weren't content to stay exclusively in Denver.  We decided to explore Boulder after hearing so many great things about the city/suburb.  It's only a short drive away from Denver but has plenty to offer and is definitely a great idea for a day trip.  Before heading into the city we took a drive through Estes Park.  It was truly beautiful and really surprising that it was only one hour from Denver.

As my parents and I headed into Boulder we scrutinized our list of restaurants in the area.  My mother had done extensive research into the options we had for lunch.  Ultimately, we chose The Kitchen.  The Kitchen is a nice place on Pearl Street in Boulder, just down from the outdoor, pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall.  The Kitchen is a casual place with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients.

For my appetizer I did something I've never done before: ordered soup in a restaurant.  I know, I know, it's crazy, but it just never appealed to me as something I would order in a restaurant.  I took the plunge at The Kitchen and am glad I did -- the soup was delicious!  It was a very plain tomato soup but it was great on a chilly day in Boulder.

Even better than the soup was the restaurant's offer to make any sandwich gluten free!  The Kitchen is stocked with Udi's gluten free bread and will serve up any of its sandwiches using Udi's gluten free bread.  While I didn't opt for a sandwich (just wasn't in that kind of mood), it is great to know that the option exists.

For my entrée I chose the Hazel Dell Mushrooms served with polenta, cherry tomatoes, and parsley.  This dish was another incredible success.  The cherry tomatoes added a great flavor to the polenta and mushrooms; I definitely think without them the dish would have been lacking.  While I enjoyed the polenta, the consistency of it would not have been enough on its own.  The cherry tomatoes burst with flavor when mixed with the polenta and made a great, gluten free lunch option.

 I don't know what it is, but I had a lot of great luck in Colorado with gluten free eating!  People were friendly and knowledgeable about what was and was not gluten free friendly.  Overall, The Kitchen is a place that I would love to visit again soon.

My parents and I headed to Denver this past weekend; it worked out perfectly as I had a long weekend off from school and they were attending a wedding in the city.  Of course meeting my parents is never as simple as that -- there's always a lot of restaurant planning included.  Not that I can complain, of course, as they will foot the bill and I'll be able to eat some delicious gluten free meals.

One such meal was at Rioja.  The restaurant is located in Larimer Square, which isn't so much a square but a street in downtown Denver that is beautifully lit with overhanging lights.  Regardless of the misnomer, it was a nice, welcoming street.  During my entire trip in Denver I was shocked by how friendly the people were.  It was such a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, where driving 3 miles can take 20 minutes (as you readers well know).

Anyway, back to Rioja.  The restaurant recently changed its menu and as such did not have a printed out gluten free menu available.  However, they are working on creating an official gluten free menu based on the new menu and I was assured it would be available soon.  Despite not having the typed out menu, my waiter was extremely helpful in guiding me through gluten free options on the menu.  The chef at Rioja, Jennifer Jasinski, was also just named Denver Chef of the Year by Denver Magazine.

I ordered the roasted organic beets salad and the grilled Tasman King Salmon.  I absolutely loved the beets salad, which was beautifully presented and had a rich, fresh flavor to it.  But writing this days later, I can really only focus on the salmon.  The salmon was fantastic, unbelievable, wonderful, over-the-top magnificent.  Living in California has made me into an avocado lover, and the chefs at Rioja did justice to the versatility of avocado.  The avocado purée which came with the salmon was not overwhelming and in no way came off as a guacamole rip-off, as other avocado purées I've sampled in the past have.  When paired with the salmon the purée was fantastic; add to that a grilled avocado on the side and you have a healthy, filling plate with robust flavor.

I couldn't resister dessert.  It was my first night in Denver and, when presented with the options, I knew I had to take advantage of my parents' generosity.  The online dessert menu has not yet been updated, but I can tell you that this dessert was breathtaking.  It was a peanut butter and jelly creation but not like you would expect.  Instead, the "jelly" of the dish came in the form of sorbet, and the "peanut butter" came in cube-shaped chunks of (frozen? chilled?) peanut butter topped with peanuts.  Whoever created this dish was a master.  It was amazing!

I'm sad that I didn't take pictures... but load the restaurant's website here and let the pictures play for you for a moment.  They may tease you, but hopefully they will convince you it's time to make a trip to Colorado!

I wholeheartedly recommend Rioja for gluten free eaters as they were very aware of our options and also very accommodating.  Just as importantly, the food is fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented.

My friend Lauren and I recently checked out BLD near The Grove here in Los Angeles.  We went as part of DineLA and were treated to a delicious three course meal.  

Our waiter was super helpful in my selection from the DineLA menu.  I opted for the Roasted Squash and Ancho Chili Soup as my appetizer, the Pan Seared Golden Trout as my entrée, and the Flourless Chocolate Cake as my dessert.  I also cajoled Lauren into ordering the wine pairings with me.  Having just come from a wonderful weekend of eating my way through Denver, I decided that I shouldn't let the good eating and drinking end just because I came home to Los Angeles!

I absolutely loved the soup appetizer along with the wine that came along with it, Bott-Geyl Gewurztraminer "Les Elements," Alsace 2004.  While Lauren and I both admit to being far from winos (our palates allow us to detect whether something is wine or beer... and that's about as sophisticated as we get), we enjoyed the pairing.  The soup was perfectly spiced and a great fall soup.  Lauren was surprised to find out that this was only the second time in my entire life that I've ordered soup in a restaurant... the first time being just a few days prior in Denver!  Crazy, I know.

I didn't receive my entrée quite as well as my appetizer.  The trout was served whole, something I was certainly not expecting.  While it was good, the work of cutting off the head and de-spining it was frustrating.  I've had some practice in working with whole fish from my time living in Spain, but I would have liked to be warned of the way the fish was served so I knew what I was getting myself into.  It wasn't particularly appealing to be spitting out bones for much of the main portion of my meal.

The flourless chocolate cake was also good; it wasn't too dense and wasn't too light.  It wasn't perfect, but as a gluten free option it was pretty great.

Of course be warned: BLD is in no way a gluten free environment.  However the waiter assured me that they would use separate and clean utensils in preparing my meal.  My waiter was knowledgeable and double checked on every option I chose to reassure me.

Mani's on Maple Visit

My friend Jaz and I checked out the new Mani's yesterday, aptly titled Mani's on Maple after its new location on Maple Drive in Beverly Hills.  Jaz was kind of enough to pick me up from LAX upon my return from Denver and we decided that Mani's was the perfect place to have lunch.

I was very excited to try out the new Mani's; I absolutely loved the old location on Fairfax and was hoping for a similar feel to this restaurant. 

I was definitely not greeted by the old Mani's I used to know and love.  The location is particularly confusing; there is no signage and it is in a corporate complex in a semi-residential area.  Strange.  Then, upon walking in, there was nothing that said "Mani's" about the space.  Instead of the comfortable, small-ish feeling of the old restaurant, the owner implemented a drastically modern design.  The space is also enormous and a bit overwhelming.  It certainly did not feel like the old Mani's on Fairfax with its large "Bakery" sign; indeed, there were no baked goods in sight.  I was told by a waitress-in-training that the restaurant would soon open up a small bakery location in the courtyard of the complex for people to get their coffee and muffin and go.  I really miss being greeted by the delectable baked treats.  Mani's had a decent sampling of gluten free treats, none of which were mentioned on the section of the new menu which detailed the restaurant's baked goods.

On the plus side the restaurant now has a liquor license.  It was only 3:30pm when my friend and I visited so we abstained from drinking, but I am excited to try them out during my next visit.

My friend and I were also disappointed when, after placing our orders, we were told ten minutes later that the restaurant only serves small plates after 3:30pm.  I guess there is a lapse in between the lunch and dinner menu... but I have trouble imagining that such an issue would have presented itself at the old Mani's.  We also walked in at 3:31pm and weren't warned about this quirky changeover period.  I ordered the salmon dish which was delicious... but I was really looking forward to the quinoa salad, my favorite lunch-time order at Mani's.

Of course Mani's has just opened and may be flexing its legs as it prepares to become a restaurant which is more geared towards power lunches and dinners.  Regardless, it is sad to see a perennial classic so drastically changed; I was a fan of Mani's for it's healthy vibe and casual atmosphere.  Sadly, both have been eschewed in Mani's new location.

I really hope that I update this review in a month when I give the new Mani's another go and can say that I was sorely mistaken.  Until then, I can't ask whether you love it or love it... because I don't.

Mermaids Bakery

Wow.  That's really the only way to begin this post.  I had been looking forward to visiting Mermaids Bakery for weeks and when I finally made it to Denver I was greeted by cupcakes from Mermaids that my parents had picked up earlier in the day.

These cupcakes are outstanding.  If you're gluten free and have any opportunity to get to Denver, take it and visit Mermaids Bakery.  It's been more than 5 years since I had a cupcake with gluten; Mermaids' cupcakes imitated gluten-filled cupcakes to near perfection.  They were light and fluffy instead of heavy and dense as many gluten free cupcakes end up being.  I'm still astounded by how they are able to mimic gluten-filled recipes in their awesome cupcakes.  I had the Signature Red Velvet, Platinum Blond, and the Chocolate Dream -- all three were fantastic, my favorite being the Chocolate Dream.

When my parents and I visited the bakery later on in our trip I was nervous to see the "Gluten Free" display initially empty.  The girl working behind the counter assured me that they had gluten free cupcakes available.  Indeed, they had just come out of the oven and had yet to be frosted.  As she went about frosting my cupcakes we talked about Mermaids and about the different options they offer gluten free folk.  The bakery has done wedding cakes, large orders of cupcakes, and can make specialty items gluten free as well.  For the full gluten free menu, click here.

Even better, the staff is super friendly and the prices aren't outrageous.  $3.50 for a fresh baked gluten free cupcake seems to be the market rate to me; I'm used to paying much more in Los Angeles and New York.

In addition to cupcakes the bakery offers up macaroons which are gluten free as well.   The macaroon was much larger than the ones I normally snack on and was delicious.  It, too, was freshly baked to perfection.

In a tantalizing bit of news, the girl working told me that the bakery is thinking about opening up an exclusively gluten free bakery.  This would be great news for Celiacs as we would no longer have to worry about cross-contamination.  Right now, the bakery is located less than a block from the 16th Street Mall.  It's a good location because of the pedestrian traffic on 16th Street and easily accessible via public transit.  However if you're visiting Denver for a short time, make a quick trip to Mermaids Bakery and avoid 16th Street.  My friend described it as a "tourist trap" and she was totally right.  There are much better places in Denver to spend your time.

In other news:  I love Denver!  I had a terrific weekend in Denver; I ate great food, met really nice people, reconnected with some college friends, and saw some beautiful vistas.  I was also very lucky to see my friends Stephany and Robyn, who now live in Denver.  It was Stephany's wedding weekend and it was so nice to see her again after such a long time.  I'll be posting about some of my other gluten free adventures in Denver this week.

The Bazaar by José Andrés

I've been to The Bazaar before with my friend Alissa and absolutely loved it; the menu is unique and the drinks are incredible.  The restaurant and its decor is very trendy and very eclectic.

More recently, my friends Ashley, Chris, Michael, Travis and I visited the restaurant as part of DineLA.  Dine LA is a great opportunity to check out new restaurants; they serve up special prix fixe meals so you can get a variety of different foods.  

When I gave our name, they asked me who the gluten free eater was.  I had forgotten that I had listed "gluten free" as a special request when I made the reservation through OpenTable.  The first time I visited the restaurant I was unaware of such a menu, and was happy to open it and see a full smattering of options.

For dinner I opted for the Tortilla de patatas "new way," catalan spinach, endives, and the apples and fennel.  I loved all of my choices, particularly the apple and fennel salad.  It was a large serving of shaved apples with manchego cheese and was cool, crunchy, and delicious.

The Bazaar is a tapas-style restaurant so it's a good idea to visit the restaurant with people who will share with you.  It isn't a choice for those trying to eat on a budget, however; a meal at this restaurant is almost guaranteed to put a dent into your wallet.

BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse Restaurant Visit

I recently posted about BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse's gluten free offerings.  After an exhausting day in the library (and by that I mean, an exhausting trip to Babycakes), my friend Hilary and I ventured over into the heart of enemy territory -- you know, the enemy that we recently passed in university rankings and whose football team is generally terrible -- to check out BJ's.

We ordered the gluten free thin crust pizza with artichoke hearts, roma tomatoes, and garlic.  It came out pretty quickly and we were both excited to dig in.

Both Hilary and I really enjoyed the pizza.  It's a thin-crust pizza unlike BJ's normal offerings of deep dish, but the crust was really delicious.  We also paired it really with our toppings.  Hilary was definitely surprised by how good the pizza was.  It's always nice to have a friend who doesn't mind trying your gluten free food and, even more, having one who actually enjoys it with you!

Perhaps the best part of all was the price: it was only $11.95 for the gluten free pizza!  That's right, no additional surcharge for being gluten free, no jacked up prices... it's amazing!  The restaurant also serves up Redbridge for only $4.50 -- also super cheap.

BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse is a great family restaurant with an awesome gluten free pizza.  I can't comment on how knowledgeable the staff is about other gluten free options on the menu, as the gluten free Thin Crust pizza is on the restaurant's main menu.  The staff, however, did know enough to inform me that the restaurant makes its gluten free pizzas on separate equipment that is thoroughly cleaned before each use.

Red Mango

I know I've posted about this before (here) but I was really happy when I walked into Red Mango and saw the signs pictured below.  Red Mango is also now a self-serve shop!

Pretty cool to see a national chain so prominently advertise their product as gluten-free, right?  Especially when you read that there are no artificial sweeteners and 100% all-natural.

My friend Hilary excused herself from the fro-yo proceedings, but I opted for a mix of pumpkin spice and pomegranate.  I really liked the pumpkin flavor but didn't enjoy the pomegranate as much as Pinkberry's pomegranate flavor, but it was a nice self-serve fro-yo option for us gluten free folk.

Gluten Free Dessert in the New York Times

My friend ACM sent me this recipe featured in today's New York Times.

Here's the recipe:

Quinoa-Oat Crumble Topping
This topping can be used to make any number of delicious, gluten-free crumbles.

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt (to taste)
3 ounces (6 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment. Place the oats, quinoa flour, sugar, salt and nutmeg in a food processor fitted with the steel blade, andpulse several times to combine. Add the butter, and pulse until the butter is evenly distributed throughout the grain mix. The mixture should have a crumbly consistency.
