CeliacChicks Around The World

View from Block Island, RI

We are constantly surprised when looking at our Google Analytics by what a widespread audience we have. Of course, most of our readers are in the States followed by Canada, the UK and Australia. As if that isn’t shocking enough, somehow readers in Chile, India, Japan, etc. etc. have found us. There is even someone peeking in Pakistan. Unbelievable! So, we were thinking it would be fun if people could contribute their own story of a local restaurant or bakery that serves up gluten-free food, especially in places that we probably won’t be able to get to. What power in numbers we would have to everyone’s benefit! And if there isn’t a local place where you can eat gluten-free treats, what amazing recipe do you treasure and want to share?

We officially invite all of our readers to contribute as guest bloggers on CeliacChicks.com. All you need to do is send an email to CeliacChick@gmail.com with CELIACCHICK STORY in the email heading and include:

  • a link to your digital photos on Flickr
  • your scoop
  • personal contact info
  • recipe/restaurant/bakery contact information

We ask that you not be a business owner or affiliated with a business in any way when submitting a story. Business owners are advised to ask a loyal customer to submit a story to us about them. We do love helping new gluten-free businesses to thrive, but we feel more confident the information will not be slanted if submitted by a customer rather than a business owner. We can not guarantee that we will use every story submitted.

We know there are lots of creative celiac chicks and celiac guys out there and we look forward to hearing from you.  Who knows?  You may get a little "thank you" present in the mail for your good deed in spreading the gluten-free word and making our gluten-free world a little smaller!


We can’t keep up with listing on our sidebar all of the different gluten free bloggers that keep popping up, so if you’d like to be listed on our site, please post the url to your blog and a brief description in the comments section below.

    Hi All,
    I’m a new GF Blogger. Hope you check out my site.
    It’s the story of a 36 year old woman living in upstate NY dealing with Celiac Disease, a husband, 4 cats and a dog. Welcome to my gluten free world!

    Very cool idea…I have been meaning to get a post up about a local place, plus an absolutely fabulous one we encountered in old Quebec City…can I send in a link from my blog? Or do you want a copy and paste type action?

    Kelly says:

    Hello Mrs. GF,
    I will definitely link to your blog and give you credit, but as a guest blogger it usually is on the host blog. Shoot me an email and we’ll chat further about the details. Since you are familiar with blog software I can set it up to send you an invite directly from our software that will give you limited access to the “back office” of CeliacChicks in order for you to write and upload photos.

    This will be fun! 😉

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and recently started my own – hoping to show people all the great, tasty & nutritious ingredients (new & familiar) that are out there that are gluten free (as well as other allergens). I post recipes I come up with & sources of ingredients hoping that people will be inspired to try their own take on them…all questions & suggestions are welcome. Here is the blog: ritaskitchenconcoctions.blogspot.com. Food is important and eating should be a valued, fun and sensual experience – not about denial and making do – enjoy!

    a small url with the occasional gf-recipe. my wife was diagnosed with celiac a number of years ago — after a near scare with liver failure (thank god for johns.hopkins liver center!). she has written an article on her travails — esp regarding nutritional supplements that caused a host of subsequent health problems; due, in part, to celiacs tendency to malabsorb minerals. i would be happy to post a pdf of her article for you if there is space to do so.

    Hi, I have been reading your blog for a while now. I live fulltime in a travel trailer with my husband. We work at campgrounds and resorts. Right now, we are in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Next summer we are going west. I write about our day to day life living the RV lifestyle, working in campgrounds, and living with gluten intolerance. I would love a link, and I have a good recipe for Blueberry Cornbread I would like to post on your site. Thanks for the invite!

    Hi Celiac Chicks,

    I read your blog regularly and rely on it for up to date information, especially about dining in NYC. I started a gluten free blog in early ’05, just shortly after diagnosis. I love the opportunity it gives me to connect with other like-minded people. Keep up the good work!

    Hi! My blog, A Chronic Dose, explores living with multiple chronic illnesses. I post often about having celiac disease, mainly to talk about attitudes towards it, how to familiarize family/friends, and, most importantly, how to go out to eat successfully. (I also just went dairy-free, which is another escapade altogether…)I’m also publishing a book in 2008 that includes material on adjusting to GF life….

    I’d love to be listed!

    Thanks and keep up the great work…

    I am so glad I found you, I got diagnosed recently and I am an illustrator AND and international flight attendant. Talk about tricky traveling-I am working hard not to panic about it (travel with Celiac) I must carry my own food! But I needed a community like this-hooray!

    Hi all!
    My blog, the Book of Yum, offers tons of delicious gluten free, international, mostly vegetarian recipes. I also have reviews of Gluten free restaurants, Gluten free bakeries, Gluten Free products, and Gluten free cookbooks. I post frequently, so there is almost always something new to see. I also do Gluten Free monthly recipe roundups…

    Recently I made Indian Paneer from scratch, I made tofu from dried soybeans, I made the best ever Gluten free pizza with Chebe crust… SO many recipes, so little time. Soon I’ll be posting a recipe roundup and a recipe for gluten free crepes. (They were yummy!)

    So, come on by and check it out!

    Hi y’all!

    I’m also a long time fan of CeliacChicks, they’ve done such a wonderful job.

    I have a blog about the different restaurants I go to in the Greater Philadelphia area (Southern PA, Southern NJ, Northern DE) and how Gluten Free friendly they are. I also have experiences in Chain Restaurants for those not in the area.

    People named Joseph Dunphy there are in abundance, but the above label seems to have stuck in some circles. 🙂

    Aside from a journal of a trip I wish I had not taken, I have a blog located at


    and a few sites attached to it where I’ll soon start posting recipes, all of which will be gluten free and kosher, mainly a blend of African and Latin cooking, with far less adaptation going on than one might expect.

    I’ve been GF for 8 years, since my celiac diagnosis. Since I’ve spent so much time reinventing my cooking to make it GF for me and my kids, I decided to try to help by blogging about recipes that can be made in a short amount of time. If certain recipes take longer, I’ll make sure it’s worth the effort, ’cause everyone deserves to eat well…even if they’re eden (eating) GF 😉

    Hello All…I just found you as I was surfing for info about gluten free products. I have heard different debates about whether or not distilled spirits contain gluten. People have occassionally told me they only drink potato vodkas to avoid the gluten. I was out last night and discovered a rice vodka called KAI. They had a lychee flavored vodka too and I indulged. Happy to say, this morning I felt great and had no reactions. Do any of you know whether or not distilling wheat products removes the gluten? I’ve had bad next days drinking wheat vodkas, but want to make sure it was the wheat, not just bad alcohol.

    Love your blog! It’s helped me find great places to eat on my many trips to Manhattan!

    Gluten free since 2001, I live in Los Angeles and am pursuing my Master’s degree in nutrition. I just started a gluten-free blog. It will have recipes, info, restaurant and bakery reviews (mostly LA), etc. – all gluten free. My goal is to be a comprehensive resource for going gluten free in LA!
    Check out my blog… http://glutenfreela.blogspot.com/

    Weekly Menu Planning Made Easy

    http://www.gfreecuisine.com offers a simple and delicious gluten-free menu, shopping list and recipes every week!

    People who need to follow a wheat-free diet often long for the same textures and foods they used to eat. We tend to spend more time and money on food but it’s always the weekly planning and grocery shopping that’s the hardest part. That’s where GFree comes in. For only $10 per month, we offer weekly dinner recipes all using approved gluten-free ingredients and the shopping list that makes getting in and out of the store a breeze.

    The grocery list follows the flow of the grocery store and the approved Gluten-Free brands are identified.

    Everything you need to cook five dinners and side dishes is in your refrigerator. It’s that simple.

    GFree has teamed up with gluten-free cooking expert, Carol Fenster who has developed all of the recipes for GFree. Simple, yet interesting recipes that allow gluten-free families to enjoy dinner and savor breads and baked goods once again.

    Thanks Celiac Chicks for introducing http://www.gfreecuisine to your readers.

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for this link page and all your great recipes and information!

    My blog is http://gluten-dairy-sugarfree.com, a blog with recipes and advice for living without wheat, dairy, and sugar. I post regularly with healthy, whole-food recipes, many of them vegan/vegetarian; information on the effects of gluten, dairy and sugar on your health; local businesses in the San Francisco Bay area for gluten-free foods; and recent news regarding food, nutrition,and health. I’ve included you in my blogroll, and if you have the time, I’d love it if you would check out my site and do the same. Thanks so much!

    Blogging from the beautiful Northwest – but a big fan of NYC. We are a gluten free family of five – but our diets have not slowed us down.

    http://www.flour-arrangements.com/ I just started blogging gluten free a few months ago and am having a fun time experimenting with all the fun flours! 🙂

    I started blogging to share with friends and family different restaurants with gluten-free menus. Since we live in Minnesota the focus is heavily on the midwest but I am trying to expand it for those who travel and to help others in different areas.

    A gluten free lifestyle with a celiac child. My son was diagnosed with celiacs disease this summer. Our journey and some of the ups and downs we’ve been through, as well as some of our favourite easy, gluten free recipes.


  27. 27

    Our blog started as a children’s book and product review, but when our daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease, we began blogging about that too. Hopefully it has some helpful resources for parents of children with celiac.

    This bakery makes the best cookies I have EVER eaten!
    They make a lemon drop cookie that is amazing! The Chocolate Cherry Ranch is so good I have to hide it from my friends and their choc. chip asst. totally rocks! I have been on this diet over 15 years and eaten some awful cookies! But these are the best ever! AND they ship!

    I’ve had Celiac Chicks on my blog roll for the past year — great site! My daughter was diagnosed with CD in high school after years of mysterious ailments. I’m a writer (www.elizabethatkinson.com) so I wrote a survival guide (GLEE! An Easy Guide to Gluten-Free Independence) for her before she left for college, which will be published in March 2009 by Clan Thompson!

    Dawn says:


    My blog started out just as a food and life-update blog. Then I learned that going gluten free would really help control my migraines. I’m not celiac, but I still try to post successful GF recipes when I find them. I also make a point of not using refined sugar in my cooking & baking either.

  31. 31

    Hi, I blog for a small, family-owned business, Triumph Dining, catering to the gluten free comunity. We make dining cards and restaurant guides to help celiacs eat out, and grocery guides to help them eat in. Our blog is focused on helping celiacs simplify their lives a little. We update it three times a week. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to join a wider GF community!

    Hi Kelly,
    I know you know about us because I read your very helpful comment about titles (we’ve been talking a lot about SEO’s.)Our blog is mainly personal observations from Kendall and I and sometimes Ann about gluten-free live in general. We also expand on some of the things we write about in the magazine or include things that we did not have room to write about on our pages.
    I’d love to link to your blog if Kendall hasn’t handled that already. Let me know how.

    My son has celiac, and thanks to Celiac Chicks he enjoyed one of his most favorite meals EVER at Peter’s Restaurant in New York. We (he!) can’t wait to go back to NY…and try some new places like Lilli and Loo. URL for my blog is:


    Article of particular interest about dining gluten free in Northampton, Massachusetts (#1 small arts town, woohoo!) can be found at:

    I just started up a blog called Ms. Celiac Says… that is dedicated to spreading awareness of gluten free bakeries, events, products, and restaurants. I focus on the NY-area but occasionally will feature other cities nationally and internationally. I would love if you would add my blog to your list, as I will add yours to my site.

    Hi Kelly,

    I met you briefly at a cooking class in Tribeca last September. We sat at the same table and spoke a little about Gluten Free Girl’s book. Anyways, since then I have moved out to California to attend Culinary School for Baking and Patisserie (yikes! that’s a lot of gluten!). I, however, and 100% gluten free and hope to someday open my own 100% GF bakery. I just started a new blog about GF baking and would love it if you would post a link to it on your list. The url is: < .”>http://chunchiesmunchies.blogspot.com/>. And the blog is called Chunchie’s Munchies. Thanks a bunch and keep up the good work!

    My name is Michelle and I do not have Celiacs Disease, but my best friend Amy does. “Friends of Celiacs Unite” or F.O.C.U. (yes, it’s a joke) is a humorous look at wheat allergies from the perspective of the loved ones of someone with the disease. We offer witty anecdotes and advice, geared towards those who are new to Celiacs and don’t know what to expect. F.O.C.U. is a support group of sorts, aimed at helping the gluten-free and non-gluten-free co-exist happily and painlessly.
