Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookie Mix

Baking Up Some Friendly Love

My daughter was invited to a friend's house for a (post-)Valentine's Day party. Not so much a "party" per se, but a get together for a handful of teenage girls to giggle and eat and giggle and giggle some more.

She wanted to bring something. Or was asked to bring something. Or was supposed to bring something. Whatever. She needed to bring some sort of yummy food item that all the girls would love.

Well, who wouldn't love some little hearts at a Valentine's Day party?

Half Moon Bay Brewing Company

Brewery Food

It is nice to be surprised sometimes. Assuming the surprise is one that is likable.

I had assumed that brewery food was on the same scale as bar food. Maybe. Maybe not.

I knew I wanted to stop at the beach in Half Moon Bay. I needed to get my beach fix. I needed a sunset. If I was going to stay for a sunset, it only made sense to find dinner somewhere close to that sunset.

So I looked for gluten-free options in Half Moon Bay. That seemed like the logical thing to do.

But I was with a small group of colleagues. Colleagues who are beer connoisseurs. I don't have a problem skipping the beer, but places where they get their good beer aren't usually known for their gluten-free food options. If they have any at all.

So when I found this place as recommended for gluten-free food, I had to give it a try. And luckily for me, the beer connoisseurs didn't have any objections. It is a brewery, after all.

But would the food be gluten-free and good? I was about to find out.
