The Port Townsend Summer Cider Day is hosted in the Maritime Center at Port Townsend, and there’s a huge range of local ciders available. It’s good timing for those of you excited about Washington Cider Week here in Seattle, because I got to try out many of the ciders that will be available here in September, so I can give you some advance opinions.
ZENERO’s mixes come together with a few simple ingredients: eggs (or flax meal), oil, milk (or milk substitutes) and water, in most cases. The mixes are created to be made in one bowl, and each is designed to be customized to the size and flavors the cook prefers. For instance, the multi-grain bread mix can be used to make hamburger buns, cinnamon-raisin bread (pictured), or sandwich bread. In particular, the mixes were developed to have a similar mouthfeel and texture to gluten-filled foods that some of us miss desperately.

Seattle Gluten Free is excited to announce our newest sponsor Dough Buddies. We often are asked where one can find a gluten free donut. One of the best choices for that is right here in our own backyard.

Sometimes you just want to tip back a cold one on a hot day.
It’s not for everyone, but those who do enjoy need quality Gluten Free options available to them.
Today we crown the top three on the market. We will mention a few extra to consider – as well as some to avoid.
When summer’s in full swelter, it’s only civilized to head out to eat. And if you want to be somewhere nearly outdoors, with the windows thrown open, and nibble from small plates, I recommend Tallulah’s. Their menu has many items labeled “GF” and they are happy to talk with you about what’s done on shared equipment with wheat. There’s plenty of fresh vegetables on the menu, which is always my preference to eat during hot weather. In particular, I recommend the beets and the halloumi salad, my two favorite menu items.
Recently we got a tip from the management at Pizza Credo. They let us know they offer a tasty looking Gluten Free pizza. They use a separate cooking surface for GF pies to help cut down on cross contamination.
If you have had their Pizza – leave us a note below – tell us how it was!
There’s nothing like brunch to make me feel like I’m “living without.” Ordering eggs without any sides, and no toast, is just plain disheartening. Luckily, I know the best place in town for gluten free brunch: Portage Bay Cafe.
If you’re out berry picking in Washington, chances are you’ll run across Maple Valley at some point. The blackberries are deliciously everywhere, and with the good sun this year, they’re luscious. If you happen to be traveling on a Saturday, the Maple Valley Farmer’s market has a dedicated gluten free bakery booth: Old School Treats.

|DGL or Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice Root Extract is a quick chewable tab I take daily. I think of it as nature’s TUMS. I began taking it after it was recommended by my sister who has a sensitive stomach. I also take it after I’ve eaten a heavy meal or notice my stomach acting up. It can calm my stomach overall. Perhaps it will do the same for you.|
Much as I love Seattle, I’m an explorer.
Summertime is the best time for road trips. And Port Townsend’s lovely Victorian setting and huge water views are beautifully amazing. But there’s also tons of beautiful farmland around here, and plenty of dairies and cheesemongers and foragers.
How’s this for a great gift?
