If youíve never had alcohol, I might recommend not starting out with vodka. It could be compared to never actually driving to the first time driving taking a race car for a spin.

Finding a cooler type beverage if youíre wanting to try an alcoholic drink might be a good option.

Or you could try a plain vodka like Titoís and mix it with your own trusted fruit juices, so that you can control the amount of alcohol in your drink.

Itís okay to just avoid alcohol, too. Just want to also say that. If youíve made it this far, youíre not missing out on that much.

While they are not sesame free, they accommodated DS with a clean wok, clean implements, etc.  He doesn't appear to be sensitive to minute traces of sesame, so he was comfortable with it.  (I'm not, but he is an adult, and it's his choice.)

He was over the moon, since not being able to have Asian food has always been a sticking point for him.

Oooh, you're talking about the Smirnoff flavored malt beverages not the Smirnoff flavored vodka... FWIW, I've had those and the Mike's Hard Lemonade and the Henry's Hard Sodas before with no problems.  I can't stand beer, but will occasionally do one of those wine cooler type drinks or hard cider.

See how uneducated I am when it comes to alcohol? LOL  I'm starting to wonder if my email was intended for these as well.

I was at a get together a few months ago, and someone picked up takeout from there. I remember there was something that was really, really good, but don't remember what it was.  And since it wasn't a concern for me or anyone who was there, I had no idea whether they were allergy-friendly.

I've seen them for a while but they have a non-top-8 ingredient I'm allergic to in them... they look good; good to know they taste good as well.  Yay for new finds!

Heads up!  I don't know if this has been posted here yet, but these are totally delish (if raw cookie dough is your thing ;))  There are three different flavors ... Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, and Sun "Better" ... all Top 8 allergen free!  I found them at Whole Foods Market in Winston-Salem, NC, but a quick look at their website, shows that they are available at Whole Foods nationwide.  Not the healthiest option, but I love getting something a little different and more decadent as a treat, and this totally fits the bill for my daughter.  Enjoy!!

There are a number of deaths in India and Georgia associated with H1N1. And a 26 year old journalist in the US went from fine to deceased within two days this week.
