Support In Se Wisconsin

Recommended Posts

Greetings from Southeast Wisconsin!

I am newly diagnosed (going on 2 weeks) & searching for some support close to home.

I'm located 40 minutes north of Milwaukee in small town, USA.

It would be nice to have a shopping partner - someone to hang out with - just someone who really gets that this disease involves more than intestinal issues.

Thanks so much!

Pondy

Hello, Pondy. I just responded to MelindaLee's post as well. I'm south of MKE, so a little far away for a shopping buddy (although I really want to check out that Costco in Grafton!) but just thought I'd say hi. I have some family in West Bend, too.

I noticed on the facebook page that a cookbook author with a new gluten free cake book out is having an event at a bookstore on Downer in MKE on Friday the 25th of March. I figured I would try to make my way there, just for a taste of cake, if nothing else. Anyone want to meet up, let me know!

(We can practice our secret handshake ;))

Hi & thanks for responding!

I would love to check out the "cake" event. Here's hoping that samples will be provided :D

I'm not on or into Facebook so would you be able to let me know the time & name of the bookstore?

Secret handshake - that's cute :) Yeah, we'll have to work one out.

I haven't been to Costco - think you have to be a member. However, the new Woodman's in the Falls has a huge selection of gluten-free products - including some Desert Essence soaps & lotions. The prices are fair also. It's worth checking out.

Cheers!

I hope posting this info isn't against the TOS here, but the event is at

Boswell Books

2559 N. Downer Ave.

Milwaukee, WI 53211

And, yeah, I'm just going for the cake. I'm really not into box mixes because they are just too much money, but I'll happily taste test for them :D.

Oh, and I am very fortunate to have a "Woody's" within two miles of my house. DH and I walk to it at least three times a week in good weather (just started our walking season last night by picking up some groceries there... and my muscles are feeling it today :blink:.) I love the rice crackers in the Asian aisle. That's where I get all of my rice and tapioca flour, too!

Just came back in to brag... er, I mean... say that:

I HAD CAKE!

I went to the bookstore event, and they had samples of her cakes... and I must admit, they were delicious.

Even she had an issue w/ the cost of gluten-free cake mixes, and had recommendations on maximizing them once you forked out the money for one.

I just requested her book from my library (ever the cheapskate, I) and am going to give some of her recipes a shot. And, if the book disappoints? Well, who cares?

I HAD CAKE!

:lol: Your post made me laugh! That is how I felt when we went to the cupcake factory and I had a cupcake! WHoo-hooo! So I just discovered this part of the forum. We three on this thread are in a big triangle! I am about 2/3 the way to Madison and also live outside "small town USA" We could all meet in Waukesha and practice that handshake! :P Terri O

Hi aeraen,

Can't believe I missed it!!! Yeah, I'm jealous. I really am. My sweet tooth is crazy strong!

I do have to say though, last weekend I made frosted brownies - Pamela's brand mixes - and they were outta this world!

Glad you had fun :D
