      It's rather surreal when that situation arises. Hubby & I were at dinner with some people. One person was a healthcare professional; supposedly gluten-intolerant and has symptoms when she eats wheat. She even volunteered an opinion on a gluten-free baking mix. Anyhow, husband & I ordered gluten-free food and she ordered a sandwich with BREAD! And eats it. Very surreal.

      No worries. I was thinking of how much I liked a chocolate and orange candy bar & the recipe sounded like it would be good combination. Your recipe sounds delicious as stated. Thanks for posting it.

      How about giving up any type of bread-like product for a weekend and see how you feel? For breakfast, you could have eggs or fruit with yogurt.

      Sounds like some hidden cross-contamination somewhere. Maybe toothpaste, mouthwash, or lip balm/lipstick products are not 100% gluten-free?

      This isn't a mix but pretty easy to make if you can have pumpkin and eggs. How about this?

      Mock Chocolate Cake
      1/4 c. canned pumpkin
      2 TBSP cocoa powder
      1 egg white
      2 pkts sugar (or sweetener of choice)
      2 drops of vanilla extract
      pinch salt

      Blend all ingredients together, put in a coffee mug & nuke in microwave for 90 seconds.

      If you can tolerate eggs, you can make bite-sized meringues (even with maple syrup as a sweetener) with different flavors. A batch using 2 egg whites makes about 2 cookie sheets worth of bite-sized ones & they keep nicely in an air tight container. Single bite-sized ones fit in the mouth so there's not crumbs flying around when you eat them.

      How do you prepare the sunshine burger? I've never tried them but they sound good.

      Our dinner is in the crockpot: lamb shanks/potatoes/carrots/celery/carmelized onions cooking with merlot & chicken stock. Will add chunks of sweet potato later (so they don't melt).

      I've used tapioca flour in a blend with Authentic Brand fine brown rice flour to make awesome cupcakes (recipe on gluten-free goddess blog). I think you can find tapioca starch in Asian stores at a pretty reasonable price.

      P.S. Great picture!

    10. Maggie Mermaid added a post in a topic New Allergy Or Intolerance?   

      Well, my husband's allergy tests showed that he is highly allergic or intolerant to caffeine. I had never heard of that before his test results. He's avoided caffeine since as well as a myriad of other foods so it's not clear how the caffeine affects him. His skin conditions are/were the indicator for the gluten intolerance.

      Personally, my stomach does not tolerate the powdered or fake liquid creamers so I've had to avoid them.

      Best of luck on figuring it out.

      Everything sounds wonderful. Does the Braised Lamb Shanks use any tomato products?

      Dinner tonight is cooking in the crockpot. It's a chicken stew using boneless chicken thighs, mushrooms, red potatoes, sweet potato, onions, carrots, celery, chicken stock seasoned with fresh rosemary, salt&pepper.

      Can also scramble some eggs/cheese/meat/veggies & roll it up in corn tortillas.

      FYI, it's possible to be allergic or intolerant to the yolk only or the egg white only.
