Cheap Beer in Boston??

back to knoxville, what's new over the last year?

Too late for this year, but if you come back and are still hankering for BBQ you could try Dead End BBQ on Sutherland Avenue. The restaurant is located west of UT Campus and can be gotten to on a public Knoxville Area Transit Bus, or you could walk there if you don't mind a bit of a hike. There is also Sweet P's BBQ. Their orginal location in south Knox County is not convenient to UT, but they've just opened a new location near downtown on Jackson Avenue. My dad is particularly fond of Sweet P's brisket.

Needing a new cookware set

My mother has made me a little biased, but I think cast iron is the only way to go. They are not "non-stick" per say and not recommended for the dishwasher, but they do become more non-stick over time if properly seasoned and well taken care of. Plus, they don't have that horrible potentially carcinogenic coating. They are my favorite skillets in the world. They sear fish and meat well and work well for making gravy. They also make fabulous crusty cornbread and are great for omlelets, frittatas and scrambled eggs. In addition, they sauté vegetables nicely, brown and melt up a mean grilled cheese sandwhich, turn out lovely pineapple upside down cakes and much much more.

Best frosting for a chocolate birthday cake?

I vote for chocolate cream cheese and would suggest going with the recipe Bugsey34 posted or the the recipe at: If your cream cheese and butter are nice and soft the icing whips up like a dream in no time flat with no tedious cooking on the stove. Plus, it tastes really yummy. I have had success using on a two layer birthday cake and on cupcakes.

Beer low in Gluten/Gluten light?

My mom is similar to you. She does not have celiac but her stomach tends to be happier when she doesn't have gluten. She likes a beer called Omission. The company goes through a process that takes the gluten out, but they have a disclaimer about it as a warning to those with true celiac disease. The best thing is the beer is available at a lot of big chain grocery stores so you don't have to go out of your way to a specialty place to get it.

I have also heard good things about Ground Breaker Brewing (formerly Harvester Brewing), Green's and Brunehaut, and my cousin's boyfriend who does have true celiac sometimes drinks St. Peter's.

Resorts, not cities, with great food

20 microbreweries, several wineries, multiple farmers markets, tons of restaurants that serve locally grown food from the simple down home variety to the gourmet, the Grove Park Inn, Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, Swannanoa Gathering, Southern Highland Craft Guild and more... Plus, the little town of Hot Springs is a quick trip west down Highway 70 if you want to soak in a tub, stay at a quaint bed and breakfast or eat dinner in a restaurant that is literally on the Appalachian Trail.
