krysmaralie added a topic in Gluten-Free Recipes - Baking & Cooking TipsWhat Are Your Favourite Chocolatey Baking Mixes?Hi everyone,
I'm brand new at the gluten-free diet and do not yet have all of the baking ingredients. I'm taking a dessert to a dinner party this weekend and don't have a lot of time to prepare so I would rather by an all-in-one packet mix then a bunch of different flours.
I was wondering if you had any recommendations on some good dessert gluten-free mixes? Or a good chocolate cake mix that I could take with some ice cream? Its my first gluten-free social experience and I'm a little nervous and would like the dessert to taste almost as good as the real thing!
Thanks in advance,

krysmaralie added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsBlood Test Positive For Celiac, Do I Need Biopsy?Hi Everyone,
I have recently been tested positive for Celiac disease in a blood test. My GP said that I need to go for a biopsy 'to confirm'. The problem is that I am currently travelling and it will be months before I get to do a Biopsy. I want to go gluten-free now, but am concerned that I should wait (and continue to feel terrible) to have this biopsy. Is it possible to eat 'normal' for a few weeks leading up to the biopsy, in order to get a true reading?
All of the literature I have read say not to go on a gluten free diet until you have been tested - is the blood test sufficient?
Thanks very much for your thoughts.
