News & Notes: January 30, 2015

Sal De Forte's Ristorante in Ewing (1400 Parkway Ave., 609-406-0123) has a gluten-free menu that includes linguini, grilled chicken parmigiana and grilled eggplant. rollentini. Other dishes can be modified accordingly.

Ristorante Primavera of Wayne (384 W. Lancaster Ave., 610-254-0200) offers gluten-free pasta and can prepare a variety of entrees to be gluten free. (Thanks to reader Emily F. for the tip.)

Seventeen Pizza Hut locations in South Jersey are among the first to offer gluten-free pizza. Unfortunately, southeastern Pennsylvania and Delaware are not part of the first phase but likely will be added in the near future. You can read my review and check out the full list of participating stores here.

One of my favorite gluten-free cookie brands, WOW Baking, has introduced three new soft cookie flavors: Maple Squares, Key Lime White Chocolate and Butter Toffee. I spotted these at the Target store in Voorhees, New Jersey on sale for $2.99.

Trader Joe's now has its own version of chewy cookies sold in the Bakery section. Their soft Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies retail for $3.99.

The new snack-food version of Nathan's Famous Beer Battered Onion Rings are gluten free. The new baked onion snack is available in convenience and grocery stores nationwide in 2 and 3.5-ounce bags with a suggested retail price of $1.99 - $2.49 per package.

Dinner rolls are the newest Gluten Free Bakehouse item from Whole Foods. They're sold frozen and can be heated in the microwave for 15 seconds. The rolls are made with Manini's Ancient Grains flour. You'll find a $1-off coupon in the current Whole Deals circular.

Chabad Lubavitch of Bucks County is sponsoring a gluten-free challah bake event on Thursday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. The cost is $18.

Have a great weekend!
