Don’t Fear the Beer!
Let me be clear. I really like beer. In 2008, I truly did fear A life without beer.
Red Bridge was here. But it wasn’t good beer. Bards then drew near. One taste and…oh dear.
Then a whisper in my ear “New Planet tastes like beer.” What did I just hear? Was it really sincere?
“A true gluten free beer!!” I let out a cheer. I shed a big tear Then swung on my chandelier.
Then Harvester Brewing Beer Found its way here. Who created this beer? A gluten free beer engineer?
Glutenberg then appeared. After I paid the cashier. I said “It’s a new frontier” “In gluten free beer.”
Omission, being quite cavalier, Calls themselves gluten free beer. If I were you, I’d steer clear...

What Kind of Celiac are You?
Hi folks. Before we kick off today’s post, a few quick Dude notes.
- Writing a blog post takes time and my time seems to be at a premium right now. So bear with me (or bare with me…which could also be fun) while my blogging pace and commenting has slowed down.
- I’m pretty active on Facebook and sometimes it can be a quick and dirty way for me to connect with the community. If you are not following me, please give it some thought. Here I am.
- I want to give a huge shout out to one of Mrs. Dude’s friends from childhood (you know who you are). She reached out to Vitamix, told them the health history of both Mrs. Dude and I and especially what Mrs. Dude is going through now, and Vitamix actually sent us one of their mixers. I am beyond...
I started this blog almost 3 years ago.
I’ve written 434 blog posts.
Heck…I even wrote a post called Gluten-Free Sex for Only $27.
Yet in all this time, I’ve never once posted a recipe.
Well my friends…the time has come.
Whenever Mrs. Dude is whipping up something amazing for me in the kitchen, I always ask her how she made it. Her response is pretty much always the same: “Oh…it’s so easy.” And yet she never tells me how to do it.
Well I had a major hankering for some of Mrs. Dude’s famous gluten-free risotto last week and since she is kinda out of commission these days, I ponied up and with Mrs. Dude’s verbal guidance, I actually made the risotto myself. I posted a picture of it on Facebook and everybody...

Celiac Rant: I’m Sick of Celiac Disease!!
I woke up this morning hoping no nude photos of mine on iCloud were hacked. The photos, all tastefully done I assure you, are for a new site I’m launching. It’s called Gluten Nude.
Watching Mrs. Dude deal with her breast cancer this summer has made me put celiac on the back burner. No matter what I was going through or how I was feeling didn’t seem to matter to me and I started to wonder…”Is celiac that bad?”
But then I think back to my past six years and I realize…yes, it still sucks.
Look, we’ll sadly always find someone who is worse off than us. But that does not minimize what the celiac community goes through at times. I was reminded of this via an email last week from a fellow celiac who reached her boiling point and needed a place to vent.
She also sent...
