    Gluten Free Bread Review

    I picked up every gluten free bread that Aldi, Kroger, and Target carry and gave them a try (they all happen to be dairy free, too!). I ate each fresh and then toasted a few times. Then, I froze them for a week to try their defrostability (I always buy extra and freeze gluten bread when I find it on sale). My (not gluten free) husband also nibbled them all to get the perspective of someone who isn’t as used to gluten free bread as I am. Here’s our honest review of these gluten free breads (Please note, this review is not being sponsored by any of these companies). BFree…

    Gluten Free at Noble Roman’s

    My family recently had the pleasure of dinning out at Noble Roman’s. I have eaten at a lot of gluten free pizza restaurants (at least 11!) and Noble Roman’s is my favorite. Read on for my review of gluten free (and dairy free!) offerings at Noble Roman’s. Please note that I am not getting paid for this review! Atmosphere First, the atmosphere. I can only speak of the Noble Roman’s near me, but for a pizza place it is really nice! Everything feels a little higher scale. Stone work and nice finishings add to the feeling of it not being your typical pizza joint. The kids like watching the chefs…
