From the earliest days of dating to our most recent dinner last night, food has been an integral - no, crucial - part of my and Seth's relationship. Our first date at Border Cafe in Harvard Square in 2011, our first meal made together in an apartment years ago (giant sandwiches on Ciabatta), and all of the countless meals, snacks, sips, and cookbook purchases ever since, our relationship seems to be not only with one another, but with the presence of food in our lives, and on our table. And since my own Celiac Disease diagnosis in 2013, food, specifically gluten free, Celiac-safe food, has become of utmost importance in our culinary lives.
Managing my Celiac diagnosis was quite an undertaking, but I was determined to not let it negatively affect my love of food or my and Seth's mutual love for going out to eat and having new food adventures together. Over time, we learned the ins and outs of eating well - gluten free - and realizing that life is actually better, and a lot more fun, when you're enjoying life as a healthy, thriving individual! My Celiac diagnosis, and subsequent life-changing mindset toward food was a blessing in disguise: I was finally able to hone my life-long passion for food through eating well, being healthy, and sharing this passion with Seth, my wonderful husband, who, fortunately for me, loves to cook (we got married in 2016!).
These days, we are an entirely gluten free household (except for the occasional craft beer or home-brew for Seth), and our weeknight meals revolve around delicious dinners that are (always) gluten free and satisfy any craving either of us may have on any given day. Oh, and I'm Gluten Free Mollie D. :)
Thank you for joining us and welcome! Let's eat!

Weeknight Dinner Recap
Meal plan. Grocery shop. Cook. Rinse and repeat. That's our method around here and they often say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" And so we're not! Every Sunday, we pore over cookbooks and create a week of meals that's varied, exciting, and most importantly, delicious. For us, a week is considered Sunday-Thursday because by Friday, let's be honest, it's time to GO OUT!
After each week, I write up a Weeknight Dinner Recap which reviews all of the meals cooked, and some tidbits on what went on life-wise during those days as well. The recaps include extra photos of food and us, and sometimes a cameo of our cat, Athens. :) She loves great dinners as much as we do and will practically climb onto the table for a lick of tomato sauce.

BOSTON + 'BURBS
Where we love to go in Boston, next to Boston, and way outside of Boston. All awesome, and all gluten-free approved by me, Gluten Free Mollie D.
Our favorites in Manhattan that I have been going to for years as well as newer locations that have become fast favorites in the forever-expanding dining scene of NYC. All locations have gluten free dishes that I have enjoyed time and time again.
