I'm from MN too! Has anyone checked out BitterSweet Gluten Free Bakery in Eagan?


I have not been to the bakery, but I buy their products often at Fresh and Natural Foods - super yummy.

I don't know what is with the cold spell - but I hate it!! I thought it was spring <_<

No kidding!!

I checked their website and there wasn't anything that my dd could have because of the additional allergies. I WISH someone could bake me a VANILLA cake that she would eat!! I've tried at least 25 recipes and they either don't come out right or she doesn't like them :(

Hi everyone.

Nice to see some local Minnesota people on this board. I've been browsing for a while, but never registered... but I finally did. :)

I've been gluten-free for 3 and a half years. I went through what alot of others here have before I was diagnosed. Went to doctors for 2 years and finally met one doctor who said he had a hunch. Did the test and found out. Thats the cliff notes version lol.

I've been reading this thread, and I'm glad to see that you have found the gluten-free bakerys around the TC area. I tend to stay away from any type of bread (rice, corn, etc) because it just doesn't appeal to me anymore... but show me a gluten-free pasta and pizza dish and I'm happier than a pig in mud.

Well like I said, this is just a hello, and I'll see you around the forums.

-Pete

Hi fellow Minnesotans!

I am so glad they have a forum for people like us! I just figured out that I am gluten intolerant about 20 days ago and have been feeling so good now that I am gluten free! It's been about 12 years of suffering supposedly from IBS and a whole array of other things. But now this one little thing and here I am actually a normal person!

I am from the Shoreview area and just wanted to say hi. I have recently discovered the FNF in Shoreview but I feel like I get the same things every time. Anyone know any good and easy recipes? I just got some cookbooks from the library but I can't even pronounce half the things they have in there. I just want to eat some normal good food! :P

Well I did see that there are a few bakerys around the area though so I will have to check those out.

Just wanted to say hi and see if I could get some ideas!

Welcome, Sheena! Glad that you are feeling better now.

I have checked out every gluten-free cookbook in our library at one time or another. Great resource.

Because of my dd's numerous allergies, $$ and taste, I make most everything from scratch now. The few things I don't make are K-too cookies, Cerrone Cones, Glutino pretzels and cereal.

Come check out the Baking and Cooking Thread and you'll find lots of ideas!

Hello! I am in a northern suburb of Mpls. We usually shop at the F&N in Plymouth. Has anyone been to Mad Woman foods retail store in Mpls? It is on 47th and Nicollet. It is so good! They have great cakes and I ordered one for my daughters b-day. They also have great rolls and hamburger buns, muffins, cupcakes, quiche, swedish meatballs and their pizzas. You really have to check it out. Anyone going to the making tracks for Celiacs walk on saturday? It will be in victoria.

Becky - I was at the Celiac Walk. I was the one cutting all the doughnuts and bagels in quarters all morning. Did you try the gluten free pizza??? Delicious - just like the greasy, fresh out of the oven pizzas you get from any other pizza place.
Take-out pizza is the one thing I miss so I'm very sad that the pizza place is in Victoria and not closer to me in Shoreview.

I didn't know there was a Celiac walk yesterday. That would have been fun!

What was the pizza place called in Victoria? I don't live near there either, but might take a drive there one Saturday to let Carleigh eat pizza out. When we were on vacation in FL, there is a place that she was able to eat pizza at and she thought that was the coolest thing. Expensive, but totally worth it!

I finally went to the new Fresh and Natural store in Bloomington this week. I think their prices were about the same as the co-op I go to in Burnsville. I did buy some awesome produce that was very reasonably priced though!

I am sure I saw you there then! I was the one with a little wild red head in pig tails! She had a blast and ran the whole way during the walk!

Hi,

I live in the southern suburbs of Minneapolis and was diagnosed about 8 months ago with Celiac Disease. Thanks for all the great places to go to eat. I highly recommend Chianti Grill in Burnsville. They have a gluten free menu that includes gluten free pasta. They are an italian restaurant, but their steaks are also great!

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good Gastroenterologists in the southern suburbs? I've been to two different ones, and haven't liked either of them. I've read of a good one at Mayo in Rochester, but would prefer to stay closer to home near the Twin Cities area.

Thanks Cheri. I was hoping they'd be more well staffed/stocked so I wouldn't have to call and reserve anymore - darn. Oh well, that "works" bread is so good, it's worth it!


I thought I'd give a Cooqi update, since I go there at least twice a week now.

The store is still open four days a week -- Wednesday til 6:00. Thursday til 8:00, Friday til 6:00 and Saturday til 4:00.

They have a lot more people working there (I counted six last Friday afternoon), and every time I go there now, there is a big selection. There are usually a few kinds of breads, foccacia, rolls, buns, etc., 2-3 kinds of brownies and 2-3 kinds of muffins, plus cookies and cupcakes and sometimes fruit bars. They always have frozen bread and frozen pizza crust, and are working with a local pizza shop on making gluten-free pizzas. Doughnuts are supposedly coming soon, too. They also sell some of their gluten-free baking mix in little bag if you're a do-it-yourselfer, but I have not tried it.

They can also make gluten-free cakes if you order them. I bought a gluten-free carrot cake a few days ago. The person who ordered it cancelled the order, so they had it in the display case and I couldn't pass it up. I'm a carrot cake lover from my pre-Celiac days, and this cake was phenomenal!

Also, most of the people who work there are celiacs or have celiac in their families, so they are very knowledgeable and very nice. Pretty much everything I've had tastes great. I especially love the brownies and muffins, but that's because I've always liked brownies and muffins!

It's probably still a good idea to call ahead if you're coming from outstate, and the pickings can get slim at the end of the day on Saturday. But it's definitely improved from a few months ago, when I would sometimes drive over there and then be disappointed because there was nothing but cookies available.

Hi Shari :)

Thanks for the info on Chianti Grill. I live very close to Burnsville. We'll have to give it a try.

Sorry, I don't have any gastro info for you. I hope that someone else does.

TT ~ thanks for the Cooqi update too. I'm glad that they are doing well! :) I'll have to call and ask what is safe now for my dd.
