Often times when I mention my food intolerances to someone in conversation, I am asked what exactly I eat in a day. I imagine this is because my food intolerances sound rather dramatic when said aloud (I can’t eat gluten, dairy or egg), and while my diet can get a little lack-lustre, it really isn’t … More Everyday Eating With Food Intolerances
In yesterday’s post I mentioned that my mom and I visited a bakery when we were in Port Dover on the weekend, and because the desserts I got from said bakery are so darn delicious, I wanted to share it with you. Trish’s Bakery Cafe, located in the heart of downtown Dover, opened in 2009 … More Trish’s Bakery Cafe
My family and I are often on the hunt for new restaurants to try out, so when my mom and dad received some gift cards for the Lakehouse as a gift, we figured it would be a great place to attend following my graduation from Niagara College. My mom, dad and I had been to … More Restaurant Review: The Lakehouse
If you read a post I composed a couple of days ago addressing my search for a great cookie, you’re aware that the chocolate chip cookies by Sweets From the Earth slightly missed the mark. I am not one to completely write off a company based off one rather disappointing experience, however; I figured I … More Cashew Cookies?
As much as I appreciate a solid chocolate chip cookie, it can be tricky to find one I can eat due to my food allergies.

To my complete and utter shock, … More An Intolerance to Potatoes?
As I promised in my last post discussing Edible Options, a bakery dedicated to individuals who have dietary restriction in St. Catharines, today’s post will offer my own opinion of the desserts I purchased to sample. Maple Chocolate Cupcake: Quite honestly, I was entirely unsure as to how maple and chocolate as a combination would … More Edible Options: My Review
My wonderful friend was kind enough to surprise me recently with a box of different desserts that, to my surprise, were safe for me to eat. She explained to me how she came across a bakery in St. Catharines called Edible Options, and how everything they create is 100% gluten-free, but further can be made … More Edible Options
I am sure you’re all aware by now of my food intolerances, but in case you’ve forgotten (which I doubt you have), I am intolerant to gluten, dairy, and egg. These intolerances can make eating protein quite tricky since many processed meats contain additives and filler, for example, gluten, therefore when I come across something that is … More Oh Naturel! Black Bean Bites
I am beyond thrilled that I have been able to compose two posts as of late discussing some tasty treats I can consume with my food allergies. The first was my post regarding Newton’s No Gluten products, and today’s post regards Galt Juice Bakery’s Quinoa Puff Chocolate Chip Cookies. My sister picked up these cookies … More Galt Juice Bakery’s Quinoa Puff Chocolate Chip Cookie
