GF/ AF Expo Schaumburg

What a great turnout for the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Schaumburg today! I would have to say 90% of the people took advantage of the great deal on Groupon for $15 for 2 people for the entire weekend. I know I did! #gfafexpo


So here’s just a few of the vendors I sampled and enjoyed. I will post more tomorrow on day #2.

NY Famous Pizza & Falafel Grill

Paneer Tikka, basmati rice and falafel for a late lunch. Reminds me of the texture of French toast😀
Nice staff. Not sure if they’d ever dealt with someone with allergies before but they accomidated nicely. I wanted spicy pili pili but it had soy. So we opted for just spicy sauce instead. I was happy with it. 

$9 Sunday meal 

(enough for 2 meals for me)
They also had a fresh smoothie bar with a lot of fun healthy options.something to check out next time.

Mini trip to Wisconsin. 1st stop Mars Cheese Castle

I Headed North to Wisconsin to find my favorite cheese this weekend and met some amazing people along the way.

I’ve been on the hunt for Grand Cru Surchoix for months now. I love the nutty flavor and goes well with my full body robust red wines that I love. For less than $5 I was able to get a wedge to share. (It retails at $22 lb)

I look forward to visiting in June when the remodel is complete. 

Thanks so much Kim, Brenda , Linda and Cece! Great suggestion Kyle G.

And to the guys from schaumburg. I’ll be hitting the donutplace soon!

I am so excited to get my personal food blog up and running. Join me as I venture out into Chicagoland NW burbs and occasionally surrounding states to search for delicious meals under $20. You may see some sweet treats posted here and there throughout my blog too because life is all about balance.

Being a home cook also I focus a lot on Gluten free and allergy free meals for my family so I will be posting some shopping trips for affordable ingredients as well.

Thanks for stopping by, come back often!
