Finding a Miami favorite (with some twists) in Chicago- Cassava (Lake View, Gluten-Free, Outside Trips)

As to be expected in a city like Chicago with quite a lot of gluten-free options, I didn’t get a chance to visit every restaurant on my list. Torrential rain threw a bit of a wrench in my morning plans, so I wasn’t able to visit Tweet in Uptown for a gluten-free breakfast (definitely want […]

Gluten-free doughnuts to make up for a night in “Shambles”- Do-Rite Donuts (Chicago/Loop)

Sunday morning of my Chicago trip we woke up a little late. The bar we went to the night before in Wicker Park was called Shambles and it seemed an accurate description of life the day after.
