Gluten Free Banana Drunk Macaroons

I hadn’t realized it while planning this weeks’ posts, but there is an ongoing theme for many of the recipes this week.

fiber + healthy and happy digestion

I just love fiber, don’t you?

Abusing my body throughout my teenage and early adult years left me with a very broken digestive system.

After going through countless tests, x-rays, medications, hospital visits, acupuncture, massage therapists, and exercises I said enough is enough! And I made a promise to myself that I would Read More »

Gluten Free Diets May Reduce Autistic Behavior


The CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network released data in 2007 that found about 1 in 150 (8-year-old) children in multiple areas of the United States had an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The number of diagnosed cases of autism is on the rise; the reason(s) for this is unclear.   Autism knows no racial, ethnic or social boundaries.  Family income, lifestyle, and educational levels do not appear to affect the chance of occurrence.

Fortunately, dietary changes can make a significant change in people with autism.  Research is profound on the positive impact that a gluten and casein free diet can make on children with autism.  Gluten and/or casein free diets have been implemented to reduce autistic behavior, in addition to special education, since the early eighties {Autism, Vol. 3, No. 1, 45-65 (1999)}.  The scientific studies include Read More »

Gluten Free Indulgence: Kitchen Table Bakers’ Parmesan Cheese Crisps

Kitchen Table Bakers Parmesan Crisps Gluten Free

Nine Varieties of Kitchen Table Bakers' Parmesan Crisps

Many snacks are labeled “cheese,” but only Kitchen Table Bakers’ Parmesan Cheese Crisps can rightfully claim this title. They are, after all, made from 100% parmesan cheese.


That’s right. While other companies use a bit of cheese to flavor their products, Kitchen Table Bakers delivers the tastiest cheese as the whole part for you to savor.

We tested all nine product flavors: Aged Parmesan, Rosemary, Jalapeno, Basil Pesto, Sesame, Flaxseed, Italian Herb, Everything, and Garlic. We also tried the Aged Parmesan mini crisps.

Our take – Kitchen Table Bakers’ Parmesan Crisps are a unique gourmet indulgence and totally satisfying.


About the Cheese Crisps:

We first met Barry Novick, the president of Kitchen Table Bakers, at a Celiac Disease event being held at Columbia University in 2005. He had recently started his business. As attendees raved about the taste of his cheese crisps, he proudly described how his products were made from the best all natural parmesan cheese and were 100% gluten-free. Like many in the gluten-free industry, Barry became involved to improve his own health. This makes him just as passionate about the safety of his products as he is about the flavor.

Kitchen Table Bakers’ Gourmet Parmesan Crisps are:

  • Made from 100% aged parmesan cheese.
  • Low in carbohydrates, less than 1 gram per serving.
  • All natural – no preservatives.
  • Sugar-free, gluten-free, wheat-free.
  • Low in calories (70-80 calories per serving).
  • Contain no Read More »
