  1. My FIL is a vegitarian and my hubby is a celiac so I always make dishes for the two of them when we do family dinners. That way they have items that are special just for them. My husband is not so sensitive that he has to worry about a spoon or something bumping into a gluten product. I have gotten used to making sure his dad's food doesn't touch the meat that it has become fairly easy to do his foods too. Each year for Christmas we do a snack food buffet. So this year I made two dips, I did the philly cheesy chili dip and made one regular and one vegitarian/gluten-free. They ate the whole thing and were so happy to have something that looked just like everyone elses. Plus I took my own chips that we knew were ok. I don't think it has anything to do with the person but it is a pain in the butt to do a special diet. I would feel bad if everyone else had to give up some of their favorite things because of me. I don't have a problem cooking for a certain diet because my dad had a heart attack and quad bypass when I was 5, I grew up on a cardiac diet. My mother later got cancer and so there was another special diet. Then I grew up and spent a couple of years being able to eat whatever my little heart wanted only to get a hyatial (sp?) hernia. Then a few years after that I married my gluten free husband. So special diets is all I've ever dealt with. Congrats to you for taking the step and try to make your sis happy and for those who do have the extereme reactions, if you are taking your own food, espically after being told that the host would/is doing a gluten-free menu, explain to them why you are still bringing your own food. I know my feelings would have been hurt too.
  2. I had no clue where to start in this forum so I just picked here. lol My husband has been diagnoised for almost twenty years now, though we've only been married four. For the first 3 years of our marriage he wasn't on "the diet" he had been on it when he was first diagnoised but after a few years he was tired of it. He just didn't eat a lot of wheat products and if he went into a big flare up as he called it he would just eat rice for a couple of days and all would be better. He finally had a flare that he couldn't control and decided to go back on the diet. I cried when my first batch of gluten-free bread came out of the oven. I have cooked award winning breads, cookies, and pastries and here sat a door stop. I thought I was alone. I even recently started a blog so others could find out they aren't the only ones. It is a journey that is for sure. We've been battling a flu/pnomnia type thing in the house and this place has been a God send. I have been able to look up each med and find out if it is ok for him.
