Giveaway: Gluten Free Restaurant Guide

triumph dining gluten-free restaurant guideBoulder is the Mount Olympus of the health food industry, nirvana when it comes to gluten free food products, and, Bon Appetit recently named Boulder the “Foodiest Town” in America.

When dining out in Boulder, I go to the places I know and trust.  Both Matthew Jensen’s Radda, and Kimball Musk’s Kitchen, are comfortable places that serve pure, wholesome, delicious food, making it easy to adhere to the gluten free diet.  In Summit County, where we spend many winter weekends (think Vail), I walk into Larkspur and my friend Thomas Salamunovich gives me a big hug before I sit down for a spectacular salad.

As someone with Celiac disease (which necessitates strict adherence to the gluten free diet) it’s easy to get great gluten free food at my friends’ restaurants.  What to do when not in a restaurant full of familiar faces?  Triumph Dining’s Gluten Free Restaurant Guide to the rescue!

This guide is great resource for those that need to know where to go when it comes to gluten free dining.  The restaurants listed in this book are not necessarily strictly gluten free; they do know how to accommodate the gluten free diet.

triumph dining gluten-free grocery guideWhat do I like about this guide?  The people at Triumph Dining have spoken to every restaurant listed in the book and heard back in the affirmative when they asked about the gluten free diet.  That means you won’t get a lot of blank stares when you place your order in one of these establishments.  The good folks over at Triumph have also created a wonderful Gluten Free Grocery Guide as well with more than 30,000 products in it.

Today I’m giving away both guides to one lucky winner.  Just leave a quick comment before 11:00pm (MST) tonight, June 27th, 2011.  I’ll choose a winner using random.org.  This giveaway is open to everyone anywhere.

For more information on gluten free restaurants in Boulder, go to Triumph Dining’s Gluten Free Restaurant Guide or check out my post on Gluten Free Restaurants in Boulder.

Update: this giveaway is now over and the winner was Harry!

  31. Nora

    I love this idea. I was recently at a restaurant in my hometown (you know, yummy looking pasta and crostini and breaded appetizers) and asked if there was anything gluten free. I was floored when my waitperson actually came back with a (limited, to be sure) gluten-free menu. I REALLY wonder, though, why I end up feeling like such a BEGGER when I go out to spend my money on a nice dinner.

  32. Alyska @ pointykitty.net

  64. Linda:-)

    Love to eat out…this would be great to have:-)

  65. Renee Gregory

    This would be a great guide to own. However we still need to be cautious as the employees may not be fully trained on what g-free means and what is/isn’t on the g-free menu. I went to a 99 Restaurant with my dad one night and asked for the cheeseburger with the gluten-free bun off of their special g-free menu. The waitress asked, “And would you like a side of fries with that, Hon?”

    I’ve also had Wonderful experiences at places where the staff were knowledgeable and understanding of g-free requirements. Recently, a deli took the time to made me a fresh batch of pesto-mayo, right there on the spot, for my breadless sandwich because they weren’t sure whether the batch on hand was made with Hellman’s. I was blown away, since it was 12:20pm and there was a line of 6 people behind me wanting to put in their orders! Now that was one of the best food ordering experiences that I have ever had in my 18 months of g-free eating!

  66. mimi fackler

    This book would make might life sooo much easier!!! I hope I’m the lucky one!! I have a hard time trusting restaurants that may not be committed to serving gluten free menu items.

  67. Renae Lynn

    I would love to win these guides. Thanks for all you do!

  68. Janis

  69. Christine

    I would love to win these! (As much for me as for my best friend who is a recently diagnosed celiac and really struggling with that as she also deals with her husband’s cancer.)

  70. April Roberts

    The guides sound like lifesavers!

  71. Pam Hopmann

  84. Lynda Donahue

    This would be great with there being of the family being glutton intolerant.

  85. Carol

    My husband hasn’t eaten in a restaurant since being diagnosed three years ago. These guides would be so helpful! Perhaps he would try “eating out” once again. What has your experience, and those of your readers, been with cross-contamination in restaurants?

  90. Sally

    What a great give-away! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  91. Amanda

    Great resources!

  92. Leanne

    Just recently learned about your blog, it’s a wonderful resource, full of very helpful information for us celiacs. I am also recommending it to one of my friends whose son is lactose intolerant.



  93. christie

    This would be a wonderful resource for me to have! I would appreciate it so much; and so would my husband:)

  94. Noel

    I’ve wondered about investing in one of these. Seems particularly useful on vacation!
    : )

  95. Farrah

    Love gluten free!!!

  96. Julia

    These look like they would be great resources. Thanks for all you do!

  97. Erin

    Great resource! BTW – I made two cupcake recipes from your book this weekend and they were a hit – even the teenage boys at the BBQ were eating them!

  98. Great giveaway! I would love the books!

  99. Annette

    I am very new to the gluten free world and this guide would be a very helpful guide.


  100. Donna

    Thank you. Great resource :)

  101. Kara

    Sounds like a great resource! My 2 yr. old daughter and I are both gluten intolerant. This would be very helpful! Thanks

  102. Gloria

    It takes determination and perseverance to adjust to dining out with gluten intolerance/sensitivity. I have other food intolerances as well and when I ask the server if there are gluten free choices on the menu I get a wide variety of responses. The worst was an experience where I was left standing in the middle of a self-serve line at a Mongolian restaurant, with folks waiting behind me (I did step aside and let them move along down the line) while the hostess went to find a “nutrition guide” for the restaurant, which told me nothing when it arrived. The manager knew nothing about gluten or other food allergies. The ironic thing about this is that there were signs all over the wall in this particular restaurant claiming that they were very aware of individual food sensitivities in their patrons and were happy to help. Go figure. A book such as the one you are advertising and giving away would be very helpful in avoiding uncomfortable situations such as these. Thank you for your blog. I have tried many of your recipes and they are always wonderful.

  103. Stacey LoSacco

    Would love it!

  104. Brent B

    Looks like a great resource.

  105. Linda Collier @ eptworks.com

  113. Cheri

    Elana, I’m packing to move SOMEWHERE! not sure where yet. I’m looking for a new job. I left out your Almond Flour cookbook because I use it frequently. I’m spending time checking the potential cities for Gluten Free friendly shopping and restaurants. It’s possible I’m going to relocate over 1,500 miles from where I am. I sure could use this reference in the car with me as I move on to my new life in a new place. I’m happy to share my experiences with others as I travel across country. I sure hope I can stop in “foodie Boulder” to sample some of the restaurants there. Thank you for your blog. It has saved my Gluten Free life! -Cheri

  114. Tracy Thomas

    Looks like this would be a necessity to my family….. I have been GF for almost a year and my 7 year old daughter was just deemed GF due to her dealing with Alopecia, the Holistic Dr’s believe it starts with the gut and after several tests she is out of balance…. I really enjoy your recipes I use them often and look forward to what you have next….

  115. I’d love to win one of your guides. I’m new to GF and any help would be greatly appreciated!

  116. Thanks for hosting this; what a great resource!


  117. Christina

    What a perfect tool for travel!

  118. Meghan

    This would be incredible – I’m moving across the country soon and need all the help I can get!

  119. Melissa Walker

    oooo. I’ve been eyeing these guides for a bit. they look very thorough and would be a great help.

  120. Here goes! I never seem to win any of the giveaways I enter, but I keep trying. :) These would be two great resources for my family.

  121. Abigail

    I did not know this about Boulder…it may be my next vacation spot so I don’t have to worry so much about eating out!

  122. Carol H

    Oooh oh oh I want it! :-)

  123. DK

    This will be a huge help to us as we plan family outings, and also as we help other families who call us for ideas as they begin their own gluten free journey.

  124. liz kettle @ textileevolution.com

    I am traveling more and more and would love to win a copy of this guide! I usually rely on the GF friendly chains but would love to find some new places to eat

  125. Leta

    I would love to win these books. I feel much better eating gluten free.

  126. Chloe Marty @ mochieroo.com

    These guides look GREAT! BTW, I think I saw you at the Kitchen in Boulder when I was in Boulder in April – LOVE that restaurant!!!

  127. Danielle Zollitsch

    What a great book!!! Will be so valuable!

  128. We are just starting the GFCF diet. I found your blog just yesterday and so glad I did! What a wonderful resource. Thank you so much for sharing your time and talent with us. This would be so wonderful to have for eating out!

  129. Joan Seliger Sidney

    I like your unpredictable give-aways. Hope you come to CT & we meet!

  130. Dawn

    This would be a great addition to my GF library. Thanks, Elana!

  131. Would love to win – thanks!

  132. Lynda Michael

    Eating out seems to be the privilege of the many who can handle gluten. Maybe a guide to restaurants would give that privilege back to me.

  133. Liz N

    I live in Parker, CO and would love to have these guides! What great resources! Thanks for the chance to win!

  134. Harry

    These books would be very helpful for me, I’m almost deaf and very hard communicate with others, thank you for this opportunity.

  135. This would be such a wonderful resource to have!

  136. carol @ n/a

    wow – yet another great giveaway!

    I have been diagnosed and GF for 10 years now, last month my 15yr old son just joined me.
    This would be a great resource for us.


  137. Paula S @ digiclipsinc.com

    This is fantastic! Didn’t know it was available. Thank you Elana!

  138. Kirstie

    I have a few friends with Gluten sensitivity and I would love to have this resource to plan gatherings and events for them. It is so much more fun to go out where everyone can enjoy themselves; and not have them feel they always have to pick the restaurant because of their needs.

  139. This would be extremely helpful. I was previously living in Boulder and just moved back to San Diego. I found it actually more challenging eating out because “gluten free” is such a trend in Boulder that many people aren’t as sensitive as us celiacs and blur the difference between gluten free and low gluten. I got sick from every restaurant I ate at while living in Boulder – and I only ate at restaurants that were recommended as gluten free and had gluten free menus. Cross contamination and uninformed chefs/servers are still a major issue for eating out when you have celiac disease. I have found the gluten free boom to be a blessing in grocery stores but a curse in restaurants :/

  140. sharron w.

    what a fantastic giveaway! :) great gift!

  141. Monique

    This is Great!

  142. Deb Brannock

    What a wonder book. I live in northern Co & have several friends (plus me) that could really use a guide like this. Glad someone took the time to put it together.

  143. ac leming

    I’m more wheat & corn free, but can always use more BOOKS!

    I love your site. And refer people to you often.

  144. Pascale D.

    This guide would be a very helpful resource for me & my family, especially this time of year when we travel some & eat out more often. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 9 years ago. I was also diagnosed with IBS in 2008. In 2009 & 2010, my health worsened with the fibromyalgia getting so severe that I was homebound weeks at a time. I kept hope & positivity that somehow it would improve even when some doctors were telling me that fibromyalgia does indeed get worse with time. In fall 2010, a holistic chiropractor recommended that I went on a gluten fre & dairy free diet. I did not feel that there was anything wrong with my diet as it was pretty healthy. I also knew that I did not suffer from Celiac disease. So I accepted to try even though I was skeptical. After a few weeks of absolutely no gluten & no dairy, the improvements in the IBS symptoms were already impressive. Then, I also experienced an improvement in fibromyalgia & overall health. I have been a reader of your website & facebook page since. I have tried some of your recipes & love them! Thanks, you are a great resource.

  145. Marlene

    Love your blogs, cookbooks, and recipes, Elana. I have a tough time staying gluten-free (I’m only wheat sensitive) but I keep trying! Would love to know about restaurants that cater to gluten-free foods.

    Have a wonderful day.


  146. Alaine

    what a fabulous resource the gluten free restaurant guide is! I don’t have celiac disease, but often choose gluten free foods as I just find I feel better when I keep the gluten to abare minimum. Love your website Elana and also the recipes which I use often – lots of yummy stuff here! Thanks!

    Alaine M.

  147. Laurel

    Would love it!!

  148. Felicia

    Thanks Elana, what an opportunity!! Would love to have this handy guide!! Love your site and all the opportunities to stay gluten free and healthy!! :)

  149. This would complete me. that is all.

  150. Michelle O

    Just stumbled upon your blog and I am so excited to start making some of your recipes. I have a good friend that has to eat Gluten, Dairy and Wheat free recipes. We both just purchased your Almond Flour cookbook and will be trying out those recipes as well. I know my friend has a hard time finding places to eat out with her restrictions so this book would be so helpful.

  151. Vikki

    Both look like great resources. I travel a lot, so I’m always looking for “safe” restaurants.

  152. tina

    Please enter me! Those look super helpful!

  153. Elisa

    This would be great for travel – every time I travel I have to search “gluten free (city)” for a restaurant, and then look through reviews, etc. But I love trying new GF so it’s always worth the risk! :)

  154. Felicia

    Thanks Elana for the opportunity to stay gluten free and healthy!! Love your site and all the wonderful recipes! :)

  155. Sweet! Thank you so much, I travel constantly for working fun. Finding somewhere to eat is definitely the hardest part!

  156. Lori L

    WOW! This would have been great last week while driving cross country!

  157. pj

    WOW OH WOW!!! I had not heard of these before, and they would sure come in handy. Thank you for sharing this.

  158. Laura

    Thanks so much. Summer holidays are coming up and this would be a great help!

  159. Sharon

    I am a breast-feeding mom to my gorgeous baby girl who is both wheat and dairy sensitive. This will very beneficial for the both of us!

  160. Kelsey

    What a perfect book! Thank you for the opportunity!

  161. Joan

    This guide would be such a great handbook to have.

  162. What an amazing resource! We’ve been traveling lately and this would have come in handy. Gluten free sure has come a LONG way from twelve years ago when I started this journey.

  163. heather hemphill @ none

    pick me!!! =)

  164. Pat @ Elegantly, Gluten-Free @ elegantlyglutenfree.com

    When eating out, if the restaurant can’t or won’t help with a gluten-free meal, I just have to stay hungry. A restaurant guide would be such a help.

  165. Sara Jean

    What an amazing resource!!!!

  166. Lora

    Looks like a great resource!

  167. Tarrie

    What a great idea. This would be so helpful to family and friends of people with celiac disease. And I really am tired of those blank stares I get when I enter a restaurant that is supposed to be “celiac friendly”, and the server or hostess looks at me like I’m speaking in jibberish. Thanks, Tarrie

  168. Sonshinejudi

    Wow I would really appreciate these guides…I love your recipes and mostly cook from scratch at home but like to go out to eat also. It is always a pain when i have to call resturants and ask about gluten, soy and sesame seed, free food. Thanks Elana! Judi

  169. nancy

    Going to make almond joy bars tonight. So thankful to have your website as a sugar free/gluten free healthy resource!

  170. jess lent

    Finding it nearly impossible to eat out without feeling sick for days afterward, I’ve mostly given up on dining out, so I can control what goes in my food at home. How awesome it would be to win these and know where to dine out as well as be clued into GF items at the grocery. <3

  171. Kristen

    This would be a great help to me!

  172. Quinlyn

    Each city should come out with a guide like this. It was would be a great resource for those of us hesitant to dine out! Thanks, Elana!

  173. Deana

    If I don’t win, will definitely be buying that book!

  174. Carol Pomeroy

    This sounds like a great resource. Thanks for the opportunity to get it.

  175. Judy Rosloff

    My daughter has celiac and is shy about asking questions and making requests at retaurants. It would be great to have a guide so she can find places that are gluten-free friendly.

  176. Lynn Krukowski @ fireagateartstudio.com

    I visited Denver’s Gem and Mineral Show last year and was astounded to see a sign for Gluten free pizza as we drove downtown. I didn’t know such a restaurant existed. We didn’t make it to Boulder because of the fire! I am impressed that you have so many “aware” places to eat. A guide like this would be real handy when you are on the road and in a new place. Thank the writers for us.

  177. sara r. michel

    What an awesome giveaway!!

  178. Susie

    This would be so helpful!

  179. Terri Chalnick

    Thank you, Elana. These two books sound wonderful. My whole family eats gluten free because my son and I cannot tolerate it. I appreciate what you do for us. Terri

  180. mike

    This would be a great gift for my wife as she is attempting to go gluten free.

  181. Yulia

  198. Brenda Hoskins @ brendahoskinscounseling.com

  202. Chelsea

    Since I had to start eating gluten free I have realized hating at home is relatively easy, but eating out can be such a challenge

  203. Dana

    This former Coloradoan misses easy to find gf restaurants! This would come in handy in our new spot. Thanks!

  204. Lauren S

    I realize that comments should not be directed towards substitution questions, but speaking of the difficulties of eating gluten free at restaurants and Bon Appetite, I cannot help myself … can you help me convert the lemon-lime basil shortbread cookie recipe in the July issue of Bon Appetite to a gluten free and healthy recipe?

    I will admit that I am not gluten intolerant, but I am trying to cut as much gluten out of my diet as possible. Once I found your blog and started making your recipes, I noticed that I have a lot more energy and feel better after I eat (this is particularly true for sweets!). So, eliminating gluten only seems natural.

    I am asking for your help because I cannot get this cookie recipe out of my mind. The recipe looks delicious, but I hate the idea of putting while flour into my body. I would love a low-sugar and high-protein gluten free version.

    Here is a link to the recipe. Please let me know your thoughts. I appreciate any and all help!

  205. Cindy Mchorney @ n/a

    Both of my children are gluten free and it is very difficult to eat out. I’m excited about this opportunity. I enjoy your blog. Thanks!

  206. kdm

    What a great resource. I look forward to exploring more gluten-free options. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would LOVE to win this fantastic prize!

    Katia Neufeld

  225. Lenci B

  227. What a wonderful resource!

  228. Laura B.

    I was just telling my husband that I don’t know of many restaurants that we can really trust to take care our family! These guides would be great!!

  231. What an incredible resource :)

  232. Tammy

    After a year of suspecting I have celiac (and on my own taking gluten out of my diet to see if I would feel better) the tests confirmed it last week. I so appreciate your website ~ Thank you!

  233. Susanna Harget

    That would be a great book to have! Thanks for doing the giveaway–my son and I are both celiac, and we have a road trip later this summer that such a guide would really come in handy!

  234. Lanell

    What a great resource, would take the guessing out of where to go, especially when traveling :)

  235. Would love to have this book! Thanks for the giveaway:-)

  236. Anna

  237. Elizabeth

    Thanks so much for the giveaway and for publicizing this book! It looks like a godsend for my husband, the traveler. Thank you!

  238. Debbie Pettigrew

    Would LOVE that! Thanks!

  241. Karen

    Thanks for sharing your great website!

  242. Heather OBrien

    What a wonderful book. I’d love to read it!

  243. Laura

    Today is my birthday and my husband got diagnosed with celiac disease on Friday. We are a family of 4 and this would be a huge help for us when we want to eat out from now on!

  244. Carolyn Bennett

    Dining out has gotten easier over time but I’m never really sure how trustful I am of the staff and their knowledge. Restaurant websites usually are great but if you are in an unfamiliar area it makes it hard for the sporadic stop. Lots of planning involved!

  245. Dee

    My mother adheres to a GF diet, and lives in a small town in KS. this would be a great guide to introduce new food combinations when she visits me, near Boulder!

  246. Lauren

    We’re about to go ona road trip and would LOVE to have this with us!

  247. Cory Williams

    I have to travel a lot. This would be a fantastic resource ! Thank you for all you do !

  259. Linda C

    what a great idea! this would get rid of all the eating out stress! i hope i win :)

  264. My newly glutenfree 16 year old has been eating out a lot (and having issues with smaller and smaller exposures). This would be a fabulous resource for her!

  265. Looks like a great book! :) Thanks for giving us a chance to win it!

  266. Melanie Bergeland

    This would be a fabulous resource. your recipes are the best

  267. Robin kaplan @ Www.sdbfc.com

  268. Aura

    So intriguing!

  269. Amie Sue @ nouveauraw.com

    Wonderful site Elana!

  270. Karol

    Ever since going GF, I’m always afraid to eat out and have done it very infrequently, so this would be great to have :)

  271. Betty

    I would love this guide!

  272. LuAnn Littleton

    Would love to have this thank you for the chance!

  273. Nancy Finkenzeller

    I just bought a gluten-free guide for Itlay so it would be great to have one for the USA! Love your website..
    All the Best!

  274. Ellen Smith

    It would great if there were a Paleo guide for restaurants as well. But I’ll take the gluten-free guide as a start. Thanks for the info.

  275. Stacy

    Awesome! Thanks for the chance to win!

  276. Michele

    Pick me! I would love looking at a whole book of my choices. :)

  277. Alison Kennedy @ n/a

    What a wonderful book and invaluable resource. Being Gluten free can be hard and what I miss most is being able to eat out and enjoy a great meal. Thats hard to do with dietary restrictions. Thanks to Triumph for putting this together!

  278. Amy

    I think both books would be a great resource!

  279. Melody

    Will be getting both of these wonderful resources whether I win or not! Thank you for the heads up!

    The Gluten Free Restaurant Guide and GR Grocery Guide look helpful



  283. Meredith

    What a great guide that will be to have handy!

  284. Dianne

    You are such a great resource inside and outside the kitchen. Thanks for making this fun.

  285. Myrna Panno @ Iowasue.blogspot,com

    This looks interesting. I mostly just don’t eat out so this would be a large help. The HyVee grocery chain here in the MidWest has a list of groceries their store carry on there web site. Don’t know how many other grocery stores do this. Nice to see so many of the name brand items adding Gluten Free to their regular line.

  286. Courtney B

    Thanks Elana for continuing to open our eyes to all the wonderful resources out there for celiacs sufferers and other health-conscious folks! If I don’t win the book, how do I purchase it?

  287. SusanT

    What a great resource. It’s so hard dining out gluten free.

  288. Brandi B

    I would love to have this resource!

  289. This would be an excellent resource as I’m always looking for restaurants that offer gluten-free options. I live in Denver and wish I could get to Boulder more often since they have some amazing restaurants there. Thanks for sharing your picks!

  290. Linda S. Steinberg

    How nice of you, Elana, to give this wonderful book away. You are really great! Thanks for the recipes and information. Linda

  296. Micheline


  297. Linda

  298. Theresa

    What a great resource to have! I would love to have this. It sure would make traveling a lot easier. Thanks for pouring so much info into all of our lives. May God bless you richly!

  299. Betty Ann Powell @ babap@quickclic.net

    What a coincidence!! My husband & I are coming to the U.S.A from Canda for a vacation next month. I would really love to win these books as it would make my life as a celiac so much easier.
    Thanks Elana for the opportunity.

  300. Karen

  305. Timmy Lamse @ grandrapidsmassage.com

    I sincerely hope that the Chicago O’Hare Hyatt Hotel is included in the guide. I stayed there for 5 days back in 2009. The chefs were wonderful. They treated me like I was a queen. They would come out to my table and speak to me personally to ask what I would like but I usually told them to surprise me. Everyday my 3 meals were fabulous. No matter which chef prepared my food, it was outstanding. I highly recommend that hotel to anyone with Celiac Disease. The entire staff was great. Hady was the manager in Red Lounge and he took very good care of me every night by ordering my food. It’s over the top in service.

  306. We are GFCF since Nov 2009 and eating out is RARE!! This would open up so many opportunities to dine out, especially when traveling :)

    PS – LOVE your stuff

  307. Venessa

    Wow! These sound great! Thank you for this giveaway.

  308. Kalyn

    I would love to win these!

  319. Now I’ll have to visit Boulder! And I thought NYC was the place to go for gluten free food.

  320. Lisa

    What a great giveaway! Would love to win!

  321. Karen

    What a great giveaway!

  322. Eeva

    Having books like these can come in really handy. I rarely go out to eat anymore because you never know what you’re getting at the restaurant. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  323. PAT

    Both books are fabulous. I live in a relatively small town which only recently has heard GF, so consequently, they have not found it necessary to add gluten free items to their menu which mneans I have to go to other counties to find restaurants which accommodate GF diets. The book contains restaurants that I had never heard of, which adds some excitement about eating out.

  324. Jordan

    Both books sounds wonderful. I may have to pick them up if I don’t win.

  325. Laura Dickinson

    Would love these resources!

  326. Jessica P

    great giveaway for a great site!

  327. Emily

    I’m excited to know of good places to eat out in Boulder as I’ll be there later this summer. I’ll have to try them out. :) Thanks for the tips; this book would be great, too.

  328. Sandra Smith

    Thank you for the opportunity, these would be a great resource for our family! We are going to be traveling to Colorado this fall and we have a two year old son who has multiple food allergies, who eats a vegan and wheat and gluten free diet!

  329. Laura

    These books would be a great help for our family when we eat out. Thanks Elana!

  330. Megan

    What a great set of resources. Fingers crossed!

  331. Debra Soderman

    These would be great! I usually go online and google gluten free and the city I’m visiting. I SOMETIMES find something interesting:)

  332. Betty Pirkle @ don'thaveone

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a great dining resource and also a great grocery resource!!

  344. Lisa

    Thank you for making this resource available.

  345. Ariana

    What a great tool to have! Thanks for the share.

  346. Glenda Webster
