Hey, this information is exactly what I was searching for! I'm heading off to college in the fall, and am probably going to live in a dorm that comes equipped with a kitchenette, but no stove. So I just wanted to thank you, this is extremely helpful in finding out what I can use in college to make food. I'm definitely going to have to experiment with cooking foods in the microwave!
Hey I'm sorry you haven't been able to find a penpal yet. I know there are some kids younger than me (I'm 16) on but it may take them a while to see this post. I think your best bet is to try to get in contact with some of the moms around here. I hope this somewhat helps! Just keep on looking! I'll try to look around and help find a penpal for your daughter.
I was diagnosed at age 12 and I've grown a lot taller since changing to the gluten free diet. I'm now officially 5'5'' which I am sooo proud of (hey, everybody in my family is pretty short) I'm now sixteen and I still feel like I'm growing because I have a lot of catching up to do!
Hey I live in Florida too! South florida though. I might be interested. I've never been to Europe. I'm in Spanish 3 and 4 this year and hopefully I will continue on in AP spanish next year and I think a trip to Europe would really expand my vocabulary. I'm not sure whether I can go, but my email is email@example.com if you want to talk. (My name's Julie by the way)
Notta Pasta is ggod. really quick to make although it does stick together. I love pasta and although i suppose i agree it doens't have much of a taste, I like the pasta with some spray butter if i don't want my pasta to have to cook a looooong time
I've been very delayed in growth, and have finally been starting to grow this past year. I'm just up to 5'4'' but I am really hoping I grow taller than that!! I seem to be growing a quarter inch every couple months, so hopefully I'll continue in my growth spurts. Though I'm not sure about how tall I might get, because all my female relatives are pretty short, and I'm taller than everybody except for my sis, who's 5'6''. My goal is to at least reach 5'6'' so i can beat my sis. lol.
Most people will say Tinkyada, but I have to say I disagree. My personal favorite is BiAglut, a pasta that is made in Italy. Most people have not heard of this brand because you can't find it in a lot of stores but you can order it from almost any online gluten-free store and it is by far the best. It heats up fairly well and cooks for about 8 minutes for every shape. Tinkyada is ok but mushy and I think slimy. It has a weird slimy coating on it, especially the spaghetti. My second fav is Dr. Schar which is also a pasta that is made in Italy.
Any kind that I know of is gluten free. I like Orville Redenbacher the best, I almost eat it every day. My favorite kind is light butter, though sometimes I buy Smartpop butter but I like it far less. Mostly I eat light butter and I sometimes put spray butter on it. yum!!
I'm 15 also. I also feel embarrassed when I go out with my friends and I have to eat different food and if I get a hamburger, can't have a bun, etc. Tell you daughter to feel free to contact me. I can hopefully relate.
