I looked at my camera this morning and realized I had several unused pictures of desserts I’ve eaten in Colorado Springs. How thoughtless of me to keep them to myself! I will put them here, as a public service, of course.
I’ll sort them by their gluten content.
Let’s start with the Tabor Mountain Bakehouse. I attended a DivaDOM event last month at Kristi Hayes’ gluten free bakery. DivaDOM, a Dessert of the Month club for women who are serious about dessert, meets once a month in various places around town. Kristi outdid herself for our little group!
Tabor Mountain offers a variety of gluten-free, grain-free and vegan foods, both meals and desserts.
Other gluten-free options are showing up around town too. Ingrid Henderson’s new business, Love Muffins, makes grain free muffins, almost entirely out of coconut. If you have a moment, click on the link and ‘like’ her Facebook page. Love Muffins is a brand new business and we can help her be successful.
Ingrid brought samples to Pikes Peak Crossfit the other day and got good feedback.
Not Gluten Free, but not made of flour either
It’s the dead of winter, but we still have ice cream in sunny Colorado. I found some (and some custard too!) at Adam’s Mountain Cafe the other day.
And finally …
Desserts Made from Gluten
Despite the gluten-free craze, you can still get traditional desserts.
Where can you get these traditional desserts? The Sahara Cafe, in Manitou Springs, comes to mind. Every time I go in there, the skillful waiter offers me baklava or ma’amoul at just the right moment.
Not traditional enough? How about a homemade chocolate chip cookie from Cowboy Espresso?
And don’t forget the coffee!
