  1. And, Vanessa, just to try to ease your fears...my 7 and 9 year old daughter and son had scopes back in August. They both did great. No problems at all. I'm glad you're going to a Children's Hospital. They are good at taking care of both kids AND parents! :-) BTW, Celiac was confirmed in both. I have it, too. Michelle
  2. I've had great luck with Bette Hagman's "The Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread". My girlfriend gave it to me for Xmas (she is so supportive of my gluten-free-ness!! It feels really great to have that kind fo support.) I used to only use Manna from Anna for my bread machine. I still like it, but I've been having a ball playing with the bread in Hagman's book. And, I do them in the oven, no bread machine. Her French Bread in unreal! Not light and fluffy, but still really tasty and a great texture. Toasted it tastes like a Thomases English Muffin!!! Give it a shot! Michelle
  3. Thanks...Penicillin isn't on either list. Yikes. I'll call the pharmacy and manufacturer tomorrow. M
  4. I had suspected strep throat last week. My doc prescribed plain ol' penicillin. I took 3 tablets over two days. On the second night, I had a flip out session with my kids. I got so angry, really yelling, like I haven't in a long time. I felt like Jekyl and Hyde. I couldn't figure it out. I started wondering if I got gluten somehow. I wondered if it was the penicillin, so I quit it (btw, my throat culture results didn't come in before the holiday....but I feel all better now, must not have been strep). As I've been thinking about it, I remember that my Dad used to see mold on bread and say, "look penicillin!" Because that's how it was dsicovered. OMG!!! Do they still somehow make it in a way that has gluten?? I carefully checked on my last medication that I was prescribed, but this one I totally forgot to check on. It's not on the gluten-free list from the gfdrugs site. Anyone know for sure about penicillin??? Thanks, M
  5. What was in your meals?
  6. Yes, yes, yes!!!!! I've tried to tell everyone here about this. It is so easy and makes me feel that I can have some of my "old" life back!! Enjoy!! M PS Made gingerbread cookeis with it this weekend! Awesome!
  7. Traveling to Phoenix next weekend. Any good restaurants for us gluten-free types? Thanks! M
  8. I also gained a little bit. (I was in the normal range for my height before, still am) My dietcian said that's good, because it means my intestines are healing and absorbing more. And, yes, emotional reactions to gluten are very common, as you've read here. M
  9. Does anyone know of a brand of cancdy canes that is gluten-free? Web search not turning up much... Thanks, M
  10. Manna from Anna is at www.glutenevolution.com or do a web search
  11. 3 words...Manna From Anna Make it in the bread machine on white, medium crust, 2 lb loaf. Nothing better, trust me. M
  12. Did you get my e-mail? M
  13. I am very lucky. I live in the Boston area and got to see a dietician who has Celiac herslef. It was GREAT! Then, took my kids to see one at Children's Hospital and while she was pretty knowledgeable, I still knew more than she did. So, if you are in Eastern MA and want a name, let me know. Michelle
  14. If one was trying to see if lactose was an issue (a non-celiac person), how much dairy should they cut out? Just obvious dairy or baked good with dairy, too? Thanks, M
  15. Try a regular gingerbread cookie recipe, just sub in a gluten-free Flour mix (I use Bob's Red Mill) and about a tsp of Xanthan gum per two cups of flour.
