When in doubt, get the special.


Found these delicious buggers at Gourmet Girls Gluten Free in Tucson, Arizona.

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. In fact, I am so much of a fanatic that I could probably eat breakfast three times a day. There’s just that special something about drinking fresh coffee, having a warm plate of carbs in front of you, and knowing that you still have the whole day to go that is simply inspiring.

One of the best breakfast combinations in my opinion is pretty straightforward: Pancakes + coffee + sunshine = a brilliant day.

This morning, I went to only the best (and one of the few) gluten-free cafes in Tucson, Arizona. Gourmet Gluten Free Girls was hosting a special: cherry pancakes. However, we’re not talking about your average flapjacks here. These light, fluffy pancakes arrived rolled in homemade cherry pie-like filling, and topped with fresh whipped cream. Not only did these pancakes look beautiful, but they tasted sweet and simple. In fact, if you didn’t know that they were gluten-free, I swear that you would never have even guessed it.

The moral of today’s story: be bold and brave. Go hard or go home. GET SPECIAL OF THE DAY.
