  1. I noticed the food you ate included ham and bacon. My daughter has the same reaction when she eats nitrates as she does if she is accidentally glutened. Nitrates are in bacon, hot dogs, corned beef, some cold cuts, and I am not sure as we do not eat it, but maybe in ham. I don't know if you eat these things often, but just thought I would throw that out there as a possibility. If you feel this may be a possibility, you can by nitrate free bacon and Hormel has a line of nitrate free cold cuts.
  2. I find rice flour can be gritty. I found that my local oriental grocer carries rice powder. I use the rice powder in place of rice flour in some of my flour blends. It is not gritty at all.
  3. I like the Schar bread crumbs the best. They are pricey, but the little bag does go a long way. I also use Rice Chex ground up on their own or if I need to stretch the Schar crumbs, I combine the Rice Chex crumbs and Schar crumbs. If I have any bread failures, I grind those up into bread crumbs and put them in the freezer until I am ready to use them. These I tend to use in meatloaf or meatballs because the consistency varies so much and using them this way is less noticeable.
  4. I also thought cornstarch would work since it is available anywhere. I might follow the rule for gravy though and use 1/2 the amount for cornstarch (1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch = 3 Tbsp flour). If you do end up using cornstarch, please let us know how it turns out
  5. My college age daughter prefers Sam's Mills corn pasta to rice pasta although she does like the rice pasta also. The key seems to be rinsing it when you drain it otherwise it tends to stick together. I usually find the Sam's Mills at Big Lots for 1.20 a pound which is not too bad. They do not have it all the time so I stock up when I find it there. Have you tried risotto? I make it in my pressure cooker and it is really good with shrimp scampi. Hope this helps!!!
  6. If they do not have it at your Wegmans, perhaps you could request it. They always seem willing to accomodate if they can. They literally just started stocking it yesterday. Good Luck and if you are able to buy some I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! On another note, Udi's has a website with a store locator. Wegmans is not listed yet. I was surprised to find a health food store a little closer than 30 miles to me also carries it, but Wegmans is even closer!
  7. Udi's is by far the best gluten free bread we have tried. (Other than what I bake). I was thrilled today to find that they just started carrying Udi's today! Yea, now I do not have to drive to the health food store 30 miles away.
  8. For anyone that is interested, the Big Lots near me has one pound packages of Sam's Mills Corn Spaghetti (package labeled gluten free) for $1.20 per package. The store I went to has two areas with pasta. The Italian section and the specialty food section. This pasta is in the specialty foods section near the thai noodles. I do not know if it is available at all of their locations, but I thought I would pass the information along.
  9. I just started using these. My daughter likes them better than Tinkyada. I usually buy Sams Mills brand online. The lasagne corte are similar in shape to egg noodles. Once (and only once) my daughter found them at Big Lots for 99cents for a one pound bag. I keep looking hoping they get them again at this price, but so far no luck
  10. Progresso has a creamy mushroom soup that is gluten free. I used it last week to make tuna noodle casserole (with gluten free corn pasta). Instead of adding a can of soup and a can of milk I just put in the can of Progresso Soup with no additional liquid (it is not as thick as Campbell's condensed) and followed the rest of the recipe as I always have. It tasted very good.
  11. My daughter enjoys Hormel Naturals cold cuts. This brand does not contain nitrates which is good because my daughter reacts to nitrates in much the same way as she does to gluten. She has had no problem with this brand and since it comes prepackaged we do not have to worry about cross contamination. They go on sale quite often and you can also find coupons for this brand from time to time.

    The red tape is a great idea!
  13. gluten-free Cooking

    I bought red handled utensils, plasticware with red lids, and a red colander. Everyone in the house knows that the red items are never to be used for anything that may contain gluten. I have two sets of condiments and peanut butter. I take a marker and label the lids "gluten free" so the gluten eaters are aware they cannot use these items. Good Luck!!!
  14. They have started selling Starfish frozen gluten free breaded fish fillets in the seafood dept. It is kept in the freezer next to the fish counter.. They have cod, haddock, and one other that I cannot remember. As a side note, I did not realize my Price Chopper carried gluten free pasta. I kept looking in the healthfood section. When it was not there, I assumed they did not carry it so I just started going to Wegmans when I needed to purchase it. Imagine my surprise one day when I was looking for toothpicks and found their gluten free section in an aisle in between shampoo, etc and picnic supplies. This is on the other side of the store from the health food section. Silly me, but I thought the gluten free food section would be found in an aisle that actually was in the food section of the store. I never would have dreamed to look between shampoo and picnic supplies. Good thing I needed toothpicks!!!!!
