  1. Good News At Yankee Stadium

    I just read an article that Coors Stadium in Denver has an entire concession stand that's gluten-free... hot dogs, brownies, beer! Road trip!

  4. Gluten Free Chicago

    Bump! Going to the Windy City in July.. surely there are some more places??
  5. what do you know about chocolate alkali? Is it safe? When I first went gluten free and researched it some old information said ketchup, vanilla, some alcohol wasn't safe... is this the same for chocolate alkali? That perhaps it was thought not to be safe - but is it? I've been known to eat my fair share of it and never had a problem, but some just told me today it's not gluten free, so I'm very curious. Thanks!
  6. The Melting Pot

    so this is a "twofer" posting... a comment and a question. We went to The Melting Pot for Mother's DAy, and it was FAB!! I had emailed ahead and was assured they would take good care of me, and they sure did. Everything was discussed ahead of time, changes made for me (like sub a different meat for a teryaki marinated meat) and the food was great. It's expensive, and it's leisurely (3 hours!) but I loved it. Except for a waiter who has celiac. It was very nice of him to come and talk to me, but frankly his attitude was not friendly. He kept trying to explain to me that I couldn't have chocolate fondue since they use chocolate processed with alkali and that it's not gluten free. He even went so far as to tell me they would not serve it to me since it wouldn't be safe for me to eat. While I appreciate his determination and helpfulness to come talk to me, he really had a bad attitude about it. We've all had to do battle about telling people what we can and can't eat, but at least we're nice about it - aren't we :-) When I explained I've never reacted to chocolate processed w/ alkali he said I wasn't getting proper care from my doctor! So my question is - what do you know about chocolate alkali? Is it safe? When I first went gluten free and researched it some old information said ketchup, vanilla, some alcohol wasn't safe... is this the same for chocolate alkali? That perhaps it was thought not to be safe - but it is? We ended up going w/ Bananas Foster, made from white chocolate, and it was so yummy this is hardly a complaint, but my whole dining party is so curious now! Please share what you know, and if you want a fabulous (expensive) leisurely dinner, check out the Melting Pot!
  7. Newbie From Kalamazoo, Mi

    Hi.. I'm from Ann Arbor too! Just wanted to say hi! I've been doing this for 3.5 years now, it gets so much easier and it is SO worth it! The Ann Arbor group is having a gluten free meal at a local restaurant in June, if you're interseted in hearing more abut Ann Arbor's events be sure to join our local group "glutenfreeannabor" on Yahoo.
  8. Red Robin!

    I go to the AnnArbor/Ypsi, MI, RR and *LOVE* it (in fact, going Friday and looking forward to it!), but yes I LOVE LOVE LOVE gulio's!! My favorite place to go, hands down.
  9. Use your favorite mac n cheese, I do all the time with Glutino pasta. If my recipe calls for flour to thicken the sauce I just use rice flour.
  10. College Students

    I just posted this under "dining out" (for lack of a better place to put it): hope this helps http://www.housing.umich.edu/dining/allergy.html I have recently started working for UM Housing, imagine my surprise and delight to come across such a comprehensive list of allergy free foods. The gluten-free list is several pages long, and apparently gluten-free pizza is always available - you just have to ask and they will "whip one up for you". Now you only have to come up with the money to send your kids to school here!
  11. New In Rochester,mi

    Welcome! I also belong to the glutenfreeannarbor group on yahoo - you might have some luck there as well. I love, love, love!! gulio's itallian in Livonia. gluten-free breadsticks, pastas, deserts.... did I mention I LOVE this place? Also have had great luck at Red Robin, my RR has a seperate fry fryer for only french fries; I'd check at your local one to see if they have the same set up. Also they will wrap the burger in lettuce so it's sort of got a "bun" to it (I but I still prefer to eat it w/ fork and knife on a plate).

  13. My test results were all "normal". My dr. told me that if eating gluten free made me feel better, I should do it! He made the analogy of if it hurts when you shut your hand in the car door, do you need a test to tell you that you should stop doing that? Made sense to me!
  14. What Do You Order At Restaurants?

    What about breakfast for dinner? Omlette and hashbrowns? Can you search for gluten-free restaurants in the areas you travel?
  15. I like the L'Oreal Color Vive line... and yes, you're worth it!
