eataly, a food lover's paradise in rome

We'd been in Rome, Italy for nearly a week and, believe it or not, we were starting to hit our limit of pizzas, pastas, and other carb-laden delicacies. Since we were staying in a rented apartment that we'd found on Airbnb, we decided to take advantage of the fact that we also had our own kitchen that we could use. We'd stashed a bunch of leftover meats and cheeses in the refrigerator and had a vague plan to round it out into an Italian salad with some greens and fresh fruits and a bottle of Italian vino.

Some people go to Rome for the history and sites and schedule their eating excursions accordingly. Well we kinda did that in reverse! To ensure that we could eat safely, we figured out where all the gluten-free restaurants were and then planned our tourist activities around the restaurants. It worked beautifully and we were able to experience a number of gluten-free dishes across Rome thanks in part to recommendations from our friend Amy the Family Chef. In fact, this might have been the first vacation we've ever been on where we didn't get sick, have an oops, and might have actually weighed the same (or more!) when we came back. I'd call that a victory!

Soufflés are quickly becoming my back-pocket dessert. They are surprisingly easy to make, can be prepared in advance, and are sure to wow even the pickiest dessert eater.

Lately I've been obsessed with creating a gluten-free, grain-free paleo version of my favorite chocolate soufflé.
