  1. I just found a great place to get gluten free baked products. Andreas Fine Foods in Chesterfield, MO has the best gooey butter cake I have ever tasted. They also have flavored pecans that are really yummy. They let me taste their bread also, and it was really good, did not fall apart like most gluten free breads. They have several things to choose from at their website www.andreafinefoods.com.
  2. I wen to Andereas Gluten Free Bakery in Chesterfield, Mo. today and purchased a sausage pizza, gooey butter cake, cinaman rolls, bread and flavored pecans. They are delicious. They let me try different products they have while I was there and I was in hog heaven. I have been gluten free for several years and am really impressed with the quality of their products. As everyone knows, it is not always easy to find excellent tasting products that are gluten free. Just wanted to let everyone know how wonderful they are (and no, I do not know anyone that works there, I was referred by a fellow celiac).
  3. I was lucky enough to run across Van Harden pizza's. Their pizzas are delicious!!! They have great customer service too. I ordered the 3 variety pack and will order in the future from them. The first delivery, the UPS driver didn't ring the door bell and the pizzas thawed out, but I emailed them the next day and had a reply from Van Harden and the UPS office that delivered them that day. They had already shipped out a new set and overnighted them. If you love a good pizza try http://www.vanharden.com/index.html . :D :D
  4. Big Article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in the Business Section on Redbridge rolling out nationally. It will be $7.99 for a six pack and sold in organic and health food stores. Can't wait to try it!
  5. Outback In Greenwood, In (near Indy)

    Outback in St. Louis is great too. Never had a problem there. They bend over backwards to make sure everything is okay!!!! and they know what gluten free is (yeah).
  6. Jack Daniels Sauces At Tgifridays

    I asked the TGIF's in St. Louis, MO and they brought out the recipe. There is a small amount of flour in the sauce. Sorry to blow the bubble. They were very nice here and let me look at the recipe book for anything I ordered and promised to not cross contiminate what I ordered. Never have had a problem here.
  7. Positive Olive Garden Experience

    I called an Olive Garden in St. Louis and talked to the Manager today. He told me he didn't know what gluten free was and suggested I not come there. I don't know what city your post was from, but I sure wish it was from our city.

    Outback steakhouse has gluten free clearly items listed on their menu. If I can think of any others, I let you know
  12. I have asked for a hamburger without the bun explaining I'm alergic to wheat and was asked if I would like bread instead. Seams a lot of people don't know how wheat is used. Oh well. I thought it was funny. Just learned to watch like a hawk when eating out and hope for the best.
  13. Gluten-free A Restaurant Cook's Perspective

    I would love to know where concerned chef works. If he is in St. Louis, I would go to his restaurant in a heartbeat.
