The Hart & Thistle Leaves Me Hungry

Last month, I decided to meet Mike in town and try out The Hart & Thistle in Historic Properties. Although it’s a brewery, it distinguishes itself as a gastropub, meaning the food is supposed to be higher quality and prepared fresh. I thought that this boded well for gluten-free options. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Happy 200th Post!

This post marks an exciting milestone for us – it’s post number 200! To celebrate, I wanted to share my five favourite Celiac moments from the past few years.

5. Constantly finding new and exciting products that make the gluten-free diet that much better!

4. Watching Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity become much better understood, and our food options growing with that understanding.

3. Seeing a reference to furry poop on 30 Rock! Yes, that really happens!

2. Connecting with many amazing people through this blog and learning every day!

And the number one item…

Having a wonderful group of family and friends that go to tremendous lengths to ensure that I am safe, happy, and well fed!

Thanks to all of our readers and followers out there. Here’s to many more blog posts and great gluten-free times!

I’ve reproduced a gluten-free version of the recipe below.

Plenty of Options for Celiacs at The Cellar Bar and Grill

A couple of years ago, Mike and I visited The Cellar Bar and Grill in Bedford. The food was good but an incompetent waiter ruined the meal for us. Recently, we decided it was time to give it another try.

We arrived at around 6 p.m. on a Friday night, but despite the timing, we were quickly seated next to a fireplace. Our server arrived at the table quickly. She was very pleasant, if not very chatty, and very knowledgeable about the gluten-free options available.
