Gluten-free Valentine's Treats!

Gluten-free Valentine's Treats!

Valentine's day is another hallmark holiday in my eyes. It's cute & fun as little kids, but at 36 years old, really I enjoy just having a nice home-cooked meal versus eating out these days! Doesn't hurt to be married to a chef!

This Sunday we checked out Love Dose as I wanted to try LUSH bites, a 100% gluten-free cookie company made in a dedicated gluten-free facility in Chicago. I've been drooling over her Instagram photos for months. Megan's cookies are TO DIE FOR! Drew, my husband literally got me almost every kind that she makes and it was hard to decide my favorite. I am having one today for a treat and cannot get over how flaky the sugar cookies are. PERFECTION. It was so nice to meet Megan and I am now her biggest fan! Check out Megan on Instagram or her site at https://lushbites.cratejoy.com/ She ships cookies, has a monthly subscription and is at some local markets in Chicago.

After Love Dose, I was dying for a BLT (gluten-free of course) and decided to get Drew his favorite gluten-laden treat from Humboldt House and a good local stout. We both were happy campers!  Talk about a Sunday Funday!

OK, last picture so you can see the amazing asparagus risotto that Drew made for me last night with a side of mushrooms for meatless Monday. Heavenly and such great comfort food!
