      Moderately adventurous: Something either uniquely Pacific NW or something not readily available gluten free. For the latter, I saw "biscuit bitch" online.

      I will have a lengthy layover at the Seattle airport in late October.  Allowing for a comfortable cushion on travel by the light rail, I could have 3-4 hours.  Any suggestions for lunch in the downtown area?

    3. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic gluten-free Options In Gluten-Using Restaurants   

      I think the way to think about it is that risk is not a yes/no question but a scale.

      If you cook in your home and have a totally gluten free house, the risk is very low but if anyone leave your house or visits, opportunities for contamination start to creep in. If humans work in the production of your gluten free ingredients, there is some level of risk.

      If you get something gluten free from a business that uses flour directly, you have lots of risk. If all of the flour based products are prepared off site, the risk for their gluten-free options is somewhere in between.

      The best you can do is get lots of advice then make informed decisions about what you are being exposed to.

    4. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Travelling On "Carnival Victory"   

      I just finished a seven day cruise with Carnival (Glory). My experience was completely opposite from what Deb experienced.

      I did talk to some of the staff and they generally have a contract for several months and then they rotate out. Just like any land based restaurant personnel turnover introduces risk.

      Thank you. I have done that and have some ideas. I thought if I asked here I'd get some recommendations from someone who is actually living gluten free and has personally tried the specific restaurant.

      Central Connecticut Gluten-Free
      I am going to be staying between Hartford and New Haven. Our agenda will take us to various museums, primarily art, and to visit family.

      Suggestions for restaurants to consider almost anywhere in the state would be appreciated.

      When are you traveling. I'm planning a Sep cruise on Carnival. I have never taken a cruise before.

    8. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Bugs Crawling On Skin Feeling?   

      Nothing really to add except a chance to use a word I learned recently:

      Formication is the medical term for a sensation which resembles that of insects crawling on (or under) the skin.

    9. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Big Bob's Cornbread Mix Review   

      I've used the Gluten Free Pantry brand also and like the OP, I've not found it in local stores lately (I really don't want to buy a box of six on-line). I found a package of Pamela's and like that better than I did the Gluten Free Pantry type. I did make one of the package variations that didn't use sugar and replaced the water with buttermilk.

    10. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Confused About Msg   

      According to Wikipedia's entry about MSG, there was a time over 50 years ago when wheat gluten was used in making MSG. If that is true, that historical fact is probably the root of a lot of the false rumors about MSG with regard to gluten.

    11. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Ny Newsday Araticle   

      Probably a contradiction but consider someone with a typical diet who is getting all of the nutrition they need. If they eliminate a segment of that diet, they will be eliminating some of the nutritional items they need. But that leaves a big question: What, if anything, do they replace those items with?

      To make any generic statement about a gluten free diet without some assumption, caveat or knowledge about that adjustment almost has to be wrong.

    12. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Pamela's Cheesecake   

      I agree. In many cheesecake recipes, the only gluten is in the crust. Gluten free cookies of almost any type could be used. I think I've seen the suggestion to just press coconut into a pan and toast it to make a crust for cheesecake. I've used gluten free ginger snaps and gluten-free shortbread cookies. My attempt with the coconut was less successful cosmetically but still tasted good.

    13. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic gluten-free Grahm Crackers   

      There is at least one gluten-free mix (by Jules Shepard) to make your own graham crackers. Not sure of the rules for linking so I'll just put a link to and article on the main page of this site about the company:

      I've had "pop-tarts" made with this recipe at a demonstration at a local Whole Foods and they were pretty good. I've not tried to bake my own.

    14. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Gluten Intolerant Vs. Celiac   

      I think the dietician is correct. Gluten-intolerance is not a consistent term on this message board. While the diagnosis is problematic, Celiac is a well defined auto-immune response to gluten. That is, well defined in terms of which body sub-system is doing what. And, as the dietician said, the treatment is the same.

      To the extent the dietician is discounting your knowledge and option because you aren't a "real Celiac", that's just silly.

    15. Tim-n-VA added a post in a topic Can I Eat Oatmeal And Muesli?   

      I haven't tried oatmeal yet but would really like to be able to add that to my menu. Is there any correlation to being able to eat the gluten-free oats and general sensitivity to gluten? That is, any indicators that make you more or less likely to be able to tolerate oats?
