  1. Hi, I will be visiting Flagstaff next week. We are driving from Orange County to Flagstaff - to see the Grand Canyon, among other National Parks and then heading back. Can you recommend some gluten-free places to eat at? Thanks! Elissa elissaley@gmail.com
  2. Hi, I live in Tustin and I am so happy to know that there are so many other people around that are gluten-free. I hurt my back a couple of months ago, but I was reading an article about six months ago in the Sunday paper about people who get together and cook once a month. Is there a club like this in existence for those of us who are gluten-free? If not, is anyone interested? I would love to do this as soon as I am more comfortable moving around. Oh, I posted this under restaurants, but here is a place that I absolutely love to eat at: {{I discovered this restaurant about a year and a half ago and since I found this forum, I thought I should share this with the group. If you live around the area or if you are traveling to Disneyland, I strongly suggest eating at Storyteller's Cafe. My husband and I have passes to the parks, and we ate at Ariel's Grotto once and the food was horrible. They had only one item - Pasta that tasted like paper, which I wouldn't even eat after the first bite. Then, we found this place. It is outside of the park inside of the Grand Californian Hotel, right never the pool for the hotel and the food is excellent! Hamburgers - with gluten-free buns, Pizza, desserts and they have a breakfast menu as well - I have only eaten lunch and dinner there though. It is a decently nice restaurant, which has rolls on the table, which aren't gluten-free, but if you ask for them, they will bring you gluten-free rolls at no extra charge. The chef will come out and let you know what is gluten-free and they are extremely helpful. The other great thing about this place is that the prices are comparable to Red Robin, which is nice if you are on a budget. Once, I came to eat here though, during the week and they were closed between lunch and dinner for a short period, so we went next door, which is called something like the Rapid's Cafe, Canoe Something or Explores Snacks - something like that - this is also outside of the park. They went next door to prepare my gluten-free hamburger, with a bun and made my special french fries as well, which I was extremely impressed with since it is a cafeteria style place. In addition to Storyteller's and the substitute, if they are closed, check out the Rainforest Cafe at Downtown Disney, they are also fairly accomodating. The reservation number for Disneyland Dining, which includes Storyteller's Cafe is 714-781-3463. Enjoy!}} Elissa
  3. Hi, I got married in 2005 and I wanted to have everything, well, almost everything gluten-free. I had Baja Fresh cater it and I was so specific about everything and they did a great job. I was thinking Mexican food because it can be done with rice and corn instead of anything with wheat. Plus, I didn't want bread of the tables. It took a whole bunch of effort, but I pulled it out and wasn't sick. For the wedding cake, I did cupcakes which were NOT gluten-free, but then I had a separate cake that was gluten-free from the Flying Apron - my aunt lives in Seattle and flew in down to me. It was so nice and one of my friends who came to my wedding, has celiac too and she asked my mom what she could eat at the wedding and she was so happy and I called her the next day to make sure she didn't get glutened either and she didn't! Since I excuse myself from almost all activites that require me to eat, I was happy that my wedding day food went so well. Afterwards, even today, people thank me, who aren't gluten-free for having something other than plain, rubbery chicken.
