What to Eat

Pin It!

Our fist day in Orlando we went to Downtown Disney for lunch at Cap’n Jack’s. It’s located in the light blue building overlooking the water.

The chef actually came out and talked to us since I informed the waiter I had allergies. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and said they could work around anything I chose.

In the end I went with the Citrus Shrimp Salad. It was great, I’d definitely get it again!

Here are a few more pictures from Downtown Disney.

We also went shopping at the beautiful Mall at Millenia.

After all that shopping we were hungry, so where did we go for dinner?? P.F. Changs my favorite restaurant just happened to be at the mall, it’s accessible from the outside of the mall only, on the same side as the valet parking!

We shared the Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and I ordered the Singapore Street Noodles. Both are offered on the gluten free menu, yes there is a gluten free menu – printed right on the regular menu! They will also provide any other allergy information for you also, my two selections were also on the dairy free list.

It was so good, we actually ate there twice during our vacation week!

While we were in Florida we had a unit with a kitchen so we could cook dinner if we did not want to go out. A few nights we did, as well as breakfasts and lunches most days.

This meant we had to go grocery shopping, we went to a few of the local grocery stores including Whole Foods which had a great selection of gluten and dairy free products.

Gluten & Dairy Free Sweetness!

Pin It!

Mr.K and I returned last week from Orlando. We got to escape the cold weather at home and went to  much warmer climates, almost 80 degrees most days! Hanging out by the pools, shopping, visiting Animal Kingdom, and Downtown Disney were just a few of the things we did.

Downtown Disney is also where the Babycakes Bakery is located, so of course we had to go! We actually ended up the bakery twice and bought a wide selection of treats to try.

The Babycakes Bakery is actually located inside the Pollo Campero restaurant.

They had lots of selection, and are open daily until 11pm!

The blondie, and lemon cupcakes were tasty. Lots of people were at Babycakes purchasing treats both times we were there.

The brownie cupcake as well as the chocolate dipped cookie crumb donut were my favorites!

Babycakes had so many treats, a lot of them I recognized from their cookbook. I hope to be back someday to try more!

As Christmas came to an end I started on this cowl. It’s by Jen Geigley and you can find the free pattern on Ravelry to make your own Gap knock-off!

I used 2 balls of Van Dyck by Filtes King in a purple-pink blend with 9mm circular needles.
This pattern is perfect for catching up on your favorite shows since it is a mindless seed stitch pattern that knits up quick.

Mine is wrapped around twice but depending on the wool you use you may manage 3 times. I would highly recommend this pattern for yourself or a gift. We had a few snowfalls over Christmas, as well it’s been colder lately, so this cowl will definitely be getting a lot of wear!

More Recipe Reviews

This past week I baked two more goodies from The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook.

First are the Gingerbread Muffins:

These are super tasty moist muffins that are egg, dairy, and gluten free. Great for breakfast or a snack!

Up next are the Chocolate Chunk Blondie Bars:

These taste just like the gluten/dairy filled ones, but are much better for you!

I’ll definitely be making both of these again.
