What is happening at LivingHistorySites this summer?

Several new and exciting things! We are looking forward to exploring history on our summer 2014 trip to South Carolina where we will be reviewing various sites in Columbia, the capital of South Carolina and coastal Charleston.....

We are also switching LivingHistorySites.com to a WordPress site that will allow you to search our content easier. Recategorizing information for historical sites, great dining locations and all the cool things to do in a particular location. We will have lists by city and by state, with suggested "things to do" and "things to see" packed with interesting tidbits and a realistic timeline!

New Gluten Free Bakery Coming to Knoxville TN

A new gluten free bakery is coming to Knoxville, Tennessee in July of 2009! Woo hoo! If you are sensitive to gluten, you know how difficult it is to find delicious gluten free goodies from a fresh bakery - so far it is impossible in the South! Gluten Free Goodies is changing that!

Gluten is the protein found in wheat, barley, rye and often found in oats processed on the same machinery wheat/barley/rye are processed on. Celiac disease is an inablity to handle gluten of ANY kind. Gluten intolerance and gluten sensitivity are coming to the forefront, as more and more people realize that gluten is something that just "makes them feel bad." Avoiding it seems simple, until you embark on a truly GF lifestyle and realize it is in everything! 

To answer the need for a GF bakery in the Southeast, Rachel Bibey created Gluten Free Goodies to address those who still want some of their old favorites like cupcakes, wedding cakes, biscuits and muffins, baked with safer GF flours. 

Look for Gluten Free Goodies at 5211 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN, 37919 to open in July. Phone is 865-300-5662

Gluten Free Goodies will be open 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday with lunch being served from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Brunch will be served on Sunday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

LivingHistorySites.com will definitely be visiting this hot new GF bakery when it opens in Knoxville this summer, and reviewing, what else, the cupcakes, cakes and delicacies there, bringing YOU the GF scoop!!

Congratulations Rachel -we can't wait to try Gluten Free Goodies in Knoxville!
