Udi's Gluten Free Pizza

I am a big fan of Udi's. I eat their bagels just about every morning and love to treat myself with their blueberry muffins every now and then. Last week I noticed that my Whole Foods now sells their pizza. I was so excited, as I have been looking for a new gluten free frozen pizza. They have 3 different varieties including pepperoni, three cheese, and margherita pizza. I opted for the pepperoni and it was a great choice. The thin crust was nice and crispy, the sauce and cheese were perfect, the pepperoni was delicious, and the basil added a nice extra touch!

babycakes NYC at Downtown Disney in Orlando

I was so excited to recently find out that babycakes NYC now has a location in Orlando. This past weekend we went to Orlando to celebrate my daughter's 2nd birthday with Mickey Mouse! Of course once I found out about the babycakes NYC location, I had to add this to our weekend plans. We stopped at Downtown Disney on our way out of town before heading back to South Florida so I could stock up on some goodies to bring back home with me. I was so overwhelmed when I walked in and saw the cases filled with gluten-free cookies, cupcakes, donuts, and more. I immediately thought I should have brought a bigger cooler for the drive home.
I ultimately decided on a few chocolate chip cookies, a cookie crumb donut, a brownie cupcake, and a blondie cupcake. Everything was AMAZING! If I had to pick a favorite it would probably be a very close tie between the cookies and the blondie cupcake. I am already thinking about my next trip to Orlando and that bigger cooler! It is pretty well-known that Disney World is very accommodating when it comes to special diets. When I asked about a gluten-free meal at one of the restaurants at the Magic Kingdom I was told I was probably the 75th person to ask for this on that day alone. I hope all of those on a gluten-free diet living or visiting Orlando are as familiar with babycakes NYC as well!
