Pancakes are also an option at Atiya Ola's Cafe, a raw/vegan cafe in West Philadelphia (4505 Baltimore Ave., 215-939-3298), says reader Laura G.

Tis' the season - for skiing, that is. In Tuesday's post, I shared word of the gluten-free options available at ski resorts at the Poconos and other day's-drive spots.

The big product news this week was the unveiling of Glutino's toaster pastries in Apple Cinnamon and Strawberry varieties. Whole Foods Markets will be the first to stock these treats. You can print a 55¢ off coupon via the Glutino website.

At Trader Joe's, I discovered an new gluten-free all purpose flour, sold in 1 lb. bags for $3.99 each. Gluten Free on a Shoestring has reviewed the product and ventures that it's made for TJ's by King Arthur Flour.

Tickets will soon be on sale for Celiac Awareness Night at the Phillies, this year to take place on Friday, Aug. 16, when the Phightins take on the L.A. Dodgers. I hope to have some news on gluten-free options for the 2013 season in the next few weeks.

Have a great weekend!
