Since moving to Phoenix, my friend Jess has blessed me with the knowledge of great restaurants, bars, and stores in the valley. She’s lucky to live close to this hip little marketplace on the corner of 16th and Bethany Home Rd. called Luci’s Marketplace. I finally made the trip up there to try some of their gluten-free offerings. I’ve spoken with Luci about their connection with Gluten Free Creations Bakery before and GFCB never disappoints. I had the egg and cheese sandwich on an everything bagel. Sure you can buy the bagels in the store, take them home, defrost and toast them. But it’s just so much better when someone else does all this for you! Luci’s offers gluten-free options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I’m dying to have a few of these sandwiches:
The Naughty Nurse Roasted red pepper, artichoke, avocado & mozzarella topped with pesto, hummus, and a balsamic glaze.
Say Cheese Gruyère cheese & tomato. Served with a creamy tomato dip.
In the spirit of staying on my toes with the gluten-free happenings in AZ, I’ve recently been spending a lot of blog time on a fellow GF-er who’s right here in Phoenix as well. Gluten Free Frenzy is a great source for all things gluten-free here, and she loves giveaways! Who doesn’t!? Her latest is for a company called Namaste, which offers allergen free mixes. I can always use a pizza mix!
