    Chasing my husband and grown kids! I am a Born Again Christian.
  1. I haven't been around for a while however, I too read the article in the Fresno Bee and took my Celiac DD to the Doc that was talked about in the aritcle. (Paul Hanchett is our Doc too Dingo Girl, small world). Anyway, Dr. Judy Davis has the Bravo ph Monitor and did the test on her. It was so cool! I think all the Fresno and Fresno area people should get together for coffee/tea sometime. ZimmiZ
  2. What type of pan do you use for baking? Non stick, glass? Everytime I bake a cake, especially white, they come out nice and brown around the edges but just about raw in the middle. I have checked the temp in my oven and it is correct. My daughter is getting married and I may be the one to bake the wedding cake, three tiers! I have found a baker in California but it is 3 hours from our home. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  3. EV, What do you mean by "die off" after taking Diflucan? Thanks! Z
  4. Dear Patty, My college daughter says she came out of the "Brain Fog" after she went gluten free and didn't realize what it was or that she was in it. It's only when she "gets glutened" that it returns. We found gluten in Tylenol white tablets, one type of dental floss and vitamins, only then did she clear up completely at the beginning of this journey. Keep searching for gluten, it will get easier, and your brain fog should clear! Here's to sunny days ahead! ZimmiZ
  5. I purchased the toaster bags from Pampered Chef for my dorm living gluten-free child, worked out well. They wouldn't let her store a toaster in the cafe or have one in her dorm room so the bags were good. In the schools defense they did give her a key to the catering kitchen to use 24 hours a day and could leave the toaster in there.
  6. Just had to jump into this topic! I would gladly trade some of the worlds best California peaches and plums just see that bear in that Plum tree! I do hope the tree doesn't break! We grow 80 acres of peaches and plums, about 12 varieties adn 100 acres of Sun Maid raisins. Plum jam is the best! Although I make apricot and pomegranate cooked jam and strawberry and boysenberry freezer jam too. Pies are big around my home too! Our family and friends love getting jams for gifts, they are so nice. We try and make it family project Anyone wanna come drive a tractor? Or better yet, pack peaches? Moving a child out your home is tough and fun! I have found a new and exciting relationship with ours as they moved out. My mom was very crafty, I'm not too interested, but I did sew. Today we looked for a sewing machine for our 20 yr old who wants me to teach her. She is VERY crafty. Any hints on what brand I should look for or avoid? We looked at a White today.
  7. As I read the replys I just laugh, I have been there, searching and tasting everything and more often than not being disappointed for my gluten-free family. With that said, I purchased a Zojirushi 2lb bread maker online from WalMart and make Manna from Anna. You set the setting on medium crust, one rise time and remove it immediatley with finished to cool on a rack. WE aren't lucky enough to have a fresh bakery close so mail order almost everything and bake it. Kinnikinnick buns are good, they agree that using lettuce as a bun is yummy but at a party using a bun makes you like everyone else, remember to toast the bread, always! I also use Kinnikinnick bread and bun mix, pizza crust, english muffins and bagels. We are looking for a cracker like ritz, the only ones they like are sun diamond but a variety would be nice. The best cookie so far is Million Dollar Peanut Butter: l cup peanut butter, l cup white sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp baking soda, Roll into balls, roll in sugar, place on pan score with sugar coated fork.Yield: 24 cookies, Bake 350, 10 minutes or until lightly brown.
  8. Dear Sheely, I am not Celiac but my husband and college aged daughter are, one son is not. After the first diagnoses I felt overwhelmed for them. I didn't know how to cook or how to shop. I made a decision that our home would be totally gluten-free, home is where you should feel safe. I watched them go up and down in their emotions toward celiac disease, It is hard and I am so sorry that you are struggling. They have each other to complain to, this group and others are terrific support. Just know you can always share here and find comfort and understanding. You can find great ideas for shopping, eating out and support for bad days. Pizza, we like Kinnikinnick pizza crust. I bake the crust first on a stone for 8-10 minutes then top it with sauce, veggies and then cheese and bake. Eating out is easier now also. Reading posts about restaurant menus is so helpfulI think the thing I hear my two complain about most is feeling hungry all the time. After a year I think we all thought that would pass. Any ideas anyone? We also order hamburger buns and bagels from Kinnikinnick. ZimmiZ God is good all the time and all the time God is good!
  9. My Celiac husband asked his Gut Doctor about eating Oats. He told him, something like this; Big question, well, I guess we could biopsy your intestine then you could eat Oats for a couple of months and then we could re-biopsy and know for sure. My husband decided not to eat Oats but wishes we could know for sure.
  10. Darla, Last week I tried Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour to make gravy for Chicken Fried Steak and Gravy. (I know it isn't the healthest meal, but sometimes...........) I coated the meat with the mix and fried it. For the gravy I used the pan juices, Bob's mix and milk to stir up gravy. It turned really good. Corn Starch mixed in cold water first would make gravy too. I found recipes for Chicken Pot Pie and many other gluten free recipes on the Bob's Red Mill Website. Good Luck! PZ

  12. Dear Chantal, I buy Blue Diamond crackers at my local Save Mart and Albertsons stores with the crackers. They are Good! Enjoy! Peggy Z
  13. Thank you for your reply! I am starting to get nervous for my family. We going with family to visit extended family over the holidays. We will be staying in a hotel, eating out all meals, including the Holiday dinner, and we are not familar with Las Vegas. We will check out the Hard Rock Hotel. Thank you so much. Do think eating at a Breakfast Buffet, like Paris, is out of the question?
  14. We are traveling to Las Vegas and would APPRECIATE any help in finding restaurants with gluten free menus. Thanks all!
  15. Thanks everyone! Shopping guides are just that, a guide, I will keep that in mind when using them. I will investigate the shopping guides you recommended. Am getting pretty good at remembering brands and items. But I still need some help. College is going pretty good for my daughter. The cafeteria cooks for her and usually knows what is safe and tells her as she comes in, I told you it was a small university! She says it would be easier to just live at home because I decided to make our kitchen gluten free, she can find food and not think about it cause she knows its safe. Thanks all!
