  1. Hi all, I am new to this...but here goes. Cooking is not the problem in my kitchen. In my home, I have to work alongside my non-Celiac mother. For starters, I have to do my own shopping in order to provide myself with good foods, however I was more interested in some other problems. I am going to such great lengths to prevent any contamination of my foods when preparing meals. My preperation area is cleaner than a hospital could do with an autoclave. However, other areas may not be so well taken care of. Despite all of my care. reactions keep occurring. Recently, I watched my mother use the same rag which she uses to wipe up bread crumbs etc to wipe off the coffee maker(as well as the dripper on the inside). I feel that this may be the source of my problems. I know I am using only gluten-free material in the process, so I am beginning to wonder if I will ever be able to cook while I am still at home or not. I guess what I am really asking is how careful do I need to be? do I need to buy a new coffee maker? is my mother spreading gluten all over our kitchen, creating an unsafe barrier between me and any food in my house? Any suggestions on keeping a gluten-free diet, while cooking in a non-gluten-free house? or am I pretty much religated to prepackaged meals for months? thanks, Kevin
