The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at www.stevecarper.com/li I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on Smashwords.com or Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

Chrysalis Dairy-Free Wheat-Free Cookies

Biochemist Linda Hardin, like many other mothers, needed to learn how to make wheat-free and dairy-free cookies for her children who had food allergies.

Unlike most she's trying to turn them into a business. She's just started an online store at www.doughgirlskitchen.com/, although www.chrysaliscookie.com redirects you to the same place.

To be precise, she doesn't sell cookies, she sells frozen cookie dough that you bake yourself. This allows her to use a commercial supplier to cut costs.


She's selling five varieties of cookies - Unbelievable Chocolate Chip, Old Fashioned Molasses, Very Vanilla Sugar, Granny's Chocolate Crinkles, and Chewy Cranberry Oatmeal - in batches of 3 dozen pre-portioned frozen dough pieces. The site doesn't technically go live until Jan. 28, but you get $3.00 off the normal $25.99 cost.

You can read more about Hardin in this article by Meg Dedolph in the Naperville Sun.

I just tasted Linda's cookies.

Oh my, where's the milk! Some of the best tasting cookies out there! I highly recommend them to everyone, no allergies required. Job well done.

Too bad Linda Hardin has decided to "market" her cookies by pretending to be a thrilled customer who "found" the cookies and posting about them on the internet:

I don't care how good they are. I don't buy products from people who act so unethically.
