Wesley Crusher's Mom Starts New Celiac Disease Awareness Campaign

02 March 2011 - 01:12 PM

Wil Wheaton (of Star Trek: TNG fame) has a sister who has celiac disease, and his Mom has started a new site, notevenacrumb.com.

See his post about her site here:

Supposedly CBS has agreed to air a PSA on celiac disease!

Cheesecake Factory

15 December 2010 - 09:54 AM

My mom asked to go to the Cheesecake Factory for her B-day next week. Last year I went and had a plain but good (=didn't get sick) meal, but I wanted to know if anyone had been there recently. (FYI last time I had the Thai lettuce wraps with no sauce on anything, it was really boring.)

Taste Testing The 'old' And Reformulated Redbridge

24 September 2010 - 05:42 PM

As some of you know, the makers of Redbridge put production on hold to reformulate their beer so it could be sold in all 50 states:

In short, the alcohol content was high enough that in some states it would have to be re-labeled as a malt liquor beverage, which they didn't want to do. I got my hands on some of the new brew (at my local Kroeger). It has less calories (133 versus 160), and a lighter taste.

I should state here that I"m a Guinness/porter type of person, and it makes me sad that I can't find a dark gluten-free beer that doesn't taste like candy (Green's). The main reason I like the new Redbridge is that it's slighly more bitter and a lot less sweet. Granted it's a little lighter tasting, but that just makes it go down a lot faster. :) Any others try the new formulation?

(PS, for those who like a hoppy beer, get your hands on a St. Peter's Sorgham ale, it's my all time fave, but at $6 a bottle it's a rare treat. I found mine at Whole Foods.)

Frustrated About Incorrect, Out Of Date Posts

15 June 2010 - 05:33 PM

I"ve come back to post on the DH board a few times, but when I go onto other areas, people have been replying to threads that are 5 or 6 years old. I am afraid that newbies will see this and get very confused about what is correct and what is not. Stumbled upon a hot dog discussion where it was plainly listed that Nathan's are not gluten-free, but as of recently they now are gluten-free. I would really like the mods to add a post to the top of old threads stating that the info is old and may be out of date, or else (which I know won't happen) to clean house and get rid of old, out of date information. I"m begging you, please consider this! You have the a great resource but you're making it more confusing than it needs to be.
