Gluten-free in MKE: Pairdd


I’ll let you in on a little secret.

Many of our evenings are spent in the kitchen, you guys know that, that’s not the secret — we make a couple cocktails, find our chill Pandora station, apron on, (for me at least, the husband doesn’t wear the one I got him.) and then we do our thing. Find fresh ingredients in the fridge and see what we can come up with.

The secret? I don’t actually like to go get the ingredients at the store.

I sometimes joke to the husband that I wish someone would just drop by with a bag full of everything and we go from there.

That’s where Pairdd comes in.

It’s like my wish came true!

Pairdd is a new company in Milwaukee that is going to make our gluten-free lives easier — and we could use a break sometimes, am I right?

Their concept is simple:

  1. YOU select a gluten-free recipe from their website. (this week they are featuring MY recipes, which is beyond exciting!)
  2. THEY do all the shopping and measuring and deliver it right to your door! (my favorite part)
  3. YOU follow the simple step-by-step recipe in your kitchen and make a gourmet meal.

AND… as my lovely readers, you can use the code CITC50 to save 50% on your order to be delivered on Tuesday! (that is one amazing meal for just $15)

Let me tell you how fun it was to have all of the ingredients to one of our favorite, easy-peasy skillet meals show up at our doorstep to taste test!

(see, wishes DO come true!)

Looks good, doesn’t it?

Fresh ingredients. Real food. Delivered to your door. You just have to pick the Pandora station (the Jack Johnson one is perfect for cooking) and the apron and leave the rest to Pairdd.

But I didn’t think the 50% discount was enough. (although please do place an order as well — you won’t regret it, and it is an amazing price for what you’re getting!) I wanted to offer you a FREE PAIRDD MEAL on me!

That’s right, a meal on me — just leave a comment below letting me know which of the two recipe choices from this week you would choose. Stop over at their site: to see the recipe options, then come back and leave a comment with your choice.

Want BONUS entries? Your name will be entered again for each item you complete below. Leave a separate comment for each item. (be sure to leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you!)

Although I’d love to send this to any of my readers near and far, it is limited to the delivery area for Pairdd. Winner will be drawn at random on Monday, July 29th at 10pm CST and delivery will take place on Tuesday, July 30th.

  1. I love this idea too! I think it might be especially convenient for me if I live on my own someday since it will be more of a pain for me to get to the grocery store! I would love to try the Mexican lasagna.

  2. I love me some Celiac in the City, she rocks!! Always giving the latest and greatest about GF eats in Milwaukee. I have never had anything by Pairdd yet but after reading the blog, I’m dying to try them. And I am a follower of all the FB, Blog and Twitter accounts. Keep the love coming, friend!! ❤

  3. LOVE! What a great idea. How about ordering one for GF guests to ensure they can prepare a menu/meal during their stay that’s GF with out all of the mystery at the grocery store of unknown brands and products!!! Great company!!

  4. I’d love the shrimp and smashed potatoes! Even my husband could cook dinner with these kits. I’ve liked pairdd on Facebook too! Thanks for doing this!

  5. What a great idea and fun new service for the GF community! Very exciting to see someone doing this. I am vegetarian so not toooo tempted by the first options although they look beautiful!:) Congrats on having your recipes featured!

    • Hi Lisa — I will say that last night I ate the leftovers sans shrimp and it is still tasty. 😉 BUT, would be lacking a little maybe for you. What kind of addition would you make to it to convert it over to vegetarian? Or would you go without? Because I’m sure we could leave off the shrimp and you could still at the Penzey’s spice to it for flavor. They make each box fresh, so I bet we could work something out — let me know and I’ll talk with them, would love for you to be entered if you’re interested!

      • The potato/veg/spices part would be delicious! I’m a fairly simple (aka – boring:) cook so would probably be happiest just having steamed broccoli or a pepper with it. Actually… we just got back from Scandinavia (GF options galore!) and had a red pepper grilled with a piece of brie inside. That was very tasty and might go well with these potatoes?
