Vegan Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Saturday, January 15, 2022, In : Vegan 
I'm making a vegan, gluten-free pizza crust for my son this morning and this time, I'm recording my recipe and what steps I took. I'm not using tomato sauce for this recipe to lower the acid for easier digestion for my little guy.


  • 1 packet of Fleischmann's RapidRise Instant Yeast Fast-Acting (this one doesn't require proofing ahead of time). When you go to the grocery store, they usually sell them in a pack of 3 so you just use one of them. You can buy the same product here: Fleis...

Making Boba Balls at Home

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Saturday, January 8, 2022, In : Boba 
(More photos to be added soon!)

Surprisingly, you only need 3 ingredients to make and roll your boba balls at home, the three ingredients are:
  • 1/2 cup of tapioca starch/flour
  • Between 1/3 cup but less than 1/2 cup of brown sugar (depending on your preference on sweetness)
  • 1/2 cup of water (divided)
That's it! Lucky for those who can't eat gluten, tapioca starch or flour is gluten-free and you can make sure it stays gluten-free by making it at home. However, it does require some work.

Bunn Thai Bistro Restaurant in Grover Beach Review

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Monday, January 3, 2022, In : Restaurants 
There are a few Thai restaurants in Grover Beach but Bunn Thai is our favorite! Their food is authentic and the decor inside is warm and welcoming with pink walls!

They also have great lunch specials. We've dined there for lunch and have done many take outs for lunch and dinner. It's always a great experience each time. I've tried their Thai fried rice, pad see ew noodles, seafood sizzling plate, curry and a couple of their appetizers.

The only thing that I feel uneasy about is that it's l...

Oyster Loft in Pismo Beach Review by a Central Coast Local

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Sunday, January 2, 2022, In : Restaurants 
For one of our date nights, we ate at Oyster Loft in Pismo Beach! It's beachfront with a phenomenal view of the Pismo Beach Pier and ocean.

We didn't have reservations and just walked in around 5:20PM and luckily there was a table available. Once we were seated, it didn't take long for the other tables to fill up so I highly recommend making a reservation ahead of time! We were just lucky that they had room for us. 

Oyster Loft is located on the second story. It's a beautiful restaurant with...
