Try these amazing doughnuts in Orange County, CA (with GF options, too!)

Ok. I’ve been meaning to write a post about this place for a while. You see, when I found out I have celiac and can’t eat gluten, this food lover went into a deep state of depression as I lamented all of the wonderful things I would never be able to eat again. There’s something about being told you have a medical reason not to eat certain foods that just makes you want them so badly.

I think a tear came to my eye and I requested a moment of silence so that just the doughnut and I could share this special moment together.

That place, my friends, is Sidecar Doughnuts in Costa Mesa, California.

A So Cal Native’s Tips for Visiting Disneyland

As cheesy as it sounds, Disneyland is still fun even after living in California and going there my whole life. That being said, there are certain times when I won’t go anywhere near it due to obscenely large crowds that make the whole experience more brutal than magical. So, with that, I would like to give you some of my favorite tips for visiting Disneyland.
