I have been gluten-free for three years now.
Just before my second year anniversary of being gluten-free, I put the idea out into the Universe that I wanted to start a group here in the city. That was in January of 2010. The following month, I hosted my first Gluten-Free Get Together event at Pizzeria Piccola in Wauwatosa.
That was a year ago. It feels like yesterday that I was nervous, anxious, excited, giddy to get there and meet everyone. Not sure why I was so nervous. Some pretty amazing people showed up. Several of which will be coming to our one year anniversary dinner on February 28th at Parkside 23 in Brookfield.
Care to join us? Check out the invite on Facebook to RSVP.
Here is a look at what we have been up to for the last year. Not just to make you drool over the food, or feel bummed that you weren’t around in the beginning, but to give you ideas of places in and around Milwaukee for your next date night.

Oh, Lawdy! The pics of the desserts we had in Madison?? Deee-lish. That peppermint, fluffy, thingy? **drool**
You’re the best, Lady! Thanks for making my transition a whole freaking ton easier. I was locked in my house with a freezer full of Amy’s rice mac & cheese (not a bad place to be), when Lo sent me your way. I’m so grateful!
