Kane's Handcrafted Gluten-Free Donut

Oh. my. word.

So last month, everyone in Boston is freaking out and Tweeting and Facebooking about Kane’s Donuts coming downtown. The artisanal donut fad yada yada yada I get it guys you can all eat beautiful, delicious, gorgeous donuts… and I can’t!

I admit it, I saw their tweets and felt bitter about it. Sometimes, a food fad comes along and an awesome local store opens, and we celiacs just can’t enjoy it, and it’s totally a bummer.

However, there is often more that we can enjoy than what we can’t, and I was in for a surprise regarding Kane’s Handcrafted Donuts.

I was inspired to pick back up blogging here by my travels to Italy last week. I ate like a king the whole week (more on that coming to the blog next week!), and wondered how I had let this blog go! I love food, I love cooking, and I love finding the next great gluten-free pizza, and you guys love to read about it! So I’m all fired up, walking to work with idea after idea for posts coming to me, when I get back to the office after a week away. My boss comes up to my desk and says, “Jenn, I’m sorry it’s a day old, but I got donuts for everyone yesterday and there’s a gluten-free one for you left in the kitchen.” … Say what?!?!

It’s been a pretty crazy week at work. Good and productive, but definitely a bit on the crazy side. Coming into the office today, I was bracing myself and readying myself for the day ahead (being over-dramatic, per usual). However, when I got to my desk my thoughts were interrupted by this adorable box:

My new coworker had gone on a vegan cupcake mission the night before, and happened upon some gluten-free goodies at CurlyCakes and brought them in for me! Yum!

I enjoyed a gluten-free red velvet cupcake after lunch with some tea this afternoon. Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about decadence. This cupcake was super rich and super delicious. The cupcake was super moist and yummy, and held together well. The frosting was good, I enjoyed it much more paired with the cake, and did take a little off since I’m not huge on frosting and it was just so, so rich. It was adorned with white chocolate shavings, so cute! Continue reading

Burton’s Grill Gluten-Free Menu

Various locations in MA and CT

I have to start this one off bluntly. The gluten-free meal I enjoyed at Burton’s Grill yesterday was not only delicious, it was impressive. I was wow-ed by the selection, the service and the quality of the meal. If you are searching for a stress-free gluten-free dining experience, you have got to try Burton’s.

My mom and sister have been obsessed with Burton’s for many years, yet I never understood why. Back when I lived near one, their gluten-free menu was ahead of its time, they had one when I was first diagnosed in 2006. Still, it was seriously lackluster – one of those “if you get this salad without the croutons and dressing it’s gluten-free!” kind of gluten-free menus. But times have certainly changed. Burton’s now offers tons of gluten-free substitutes and the gluten-free menu is robust – from appetizers to entrees to dessert and even cocktails!
