  1. Hi, thanks for your response to my post, I just wanted you to know I've put a post-it note on my fridge saying 'I'm gluten free because it's good for me!', it'll make me smile tomorrow morning when I'm feeling blue!

  2. has not set their status

  3. Same for me. They were the closest to "real" bagels I'd had in many years! That said... I'm goin' over to check out Joan's... as today is the 8th!!!
  4. I'd have to agree w/ Portland, too. There's this really neat little bakery that looks like a Gingerbread house w/ the most yummy gluten-free stuff. I moved to Arkansas where there's NO gluten-free stuff in stores, but I can order anything I need from Amazon and if I buy $25 worth of stuff (so I just wait till I need a few things)... shipping is free and buying a "case" (for example 6 packets of Pamela's bread mix or 12 packs of Tinkyada spaghetti) ends up costing me way less than it did when I could find it in stores (w/ the exception maybe of Trader Joe's which seems to have really reasonablel prices! Eating out is a problem anywhere. We just don't go often anymore.
  5. I lived in New Hope and surrounding areas for almost 30 years! VERY pretty area!! There's Jules in Doylestown (about 15 min. from New Hope) that serves gluten-free pizza. I ate at Widow Brown's in the old church on the main drag not long ago ... they were MOST accommodating!! I also ate once at the Triumph Brewing Company. My waiter hooked me up w/ a waitress who also had celiac... she told me what I could have and what I couldn't. THAT SAID... I ordered rice pudding for dessert and she came running over as I was just about to put it in my mouth to tell me NOT to eat it... it wasn't really rice, but was orzo pasta!! I wrote a letter to the management asking WHY ON EARTH they would put rice pudding on the menu, when it wasn't rice at all???
  6. Can't Stop Binging On Gluten!

    You sure must not have the gastric issues I have when glutened. I can't IMAGINE eating gluten on purpose. When I was diagnosed, I sort of OD'd on the foods I COULD have cause I was so upset at all the foods I could no longer have... and gained about 30 lbs. I'd only repeat what everyone else has said. Even if you don't have the immediate physical reactions to eating gluten... you're CERTAINLY doing damage to your body! Maybe there's a gluten free organization if your local area? Meeting other peeps w/ Celiac might help a lot.
  7. Been using her book for several years. I made about 10 batches of her carrot cake recipe and made my 3 tiered wedding cake a few years ago. It was awesome!
  8. About a year after going gluten-free, I scarfed down a huge hunk of homemade bread I'd made and missed so terribly. NOTHING HAPPENED. I had these awesome dreams of "planning" a cheat... maybe once a month... and was making a list of all the foods I might have! I didn't do the once a month cheat... and now I wouldn't knowingly put gluten in my mouth for all the $$ in the world. THAT'S how sensitve I became.
  9. Age Of Diagnosis?

    I was 49 years old... and was diagnosed after only a few months of gastro symptoms. I'm the only one of my siblings who has Celiac. My middle daughter (of 3 girls) was diagnosed at 25.
  10. This is one of my new faves. I took it to a pot luck a while back and I swear... people were about to LICK the crockpot clean, it was SO good. I doubled the recipe. Enjoy! Best Corn Ever 2 pounds frozen corn kernels 1 8 oz package cream cheese 1 stick butter 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt pepper to taste Mix all together in crockpot. Cook on high for 2 hours. Stir occasionally.
  11. Bread You Can Slice

    When I make rolls and bagels, I freeze them and take them out individually. When I'm on a real sandwich kick, I just put the loaf of bread in a zip lock in the fridge... it lasts more than a week. Or I slice it into slices and put 2 slices in a sandwich zip lock and freeze. One of the best finds... in a store like Bed, Bath & Beyond... was a $4.00 slicing knife that you "dial" the desired thickness. I get uniform slices every time. Any leftovers or bread "heels" I keep and freeze for breadcrumbs.
  12. Bread You Can Slice

    I make a loaf of Pamela's Bread Mix once a week or week-and-a-half... sometimes I make it into roll shapes and I've even made the bagel recipe.. they are DELISH and the best textured bread I've found yet! I order them by the 6 mixes from Amazon. You only have to order $25 worth of stuff and shipping if FREE... SO good for me living out there in the Arkansas woods where there are no Whole Foods and only one good health food store!! I order my Tinkyada pasta from them too!
  13. Pierogie Casserole

    I made this tonight and ... holy cow... is it DELICIOUS!!! Thanks so much for posting it! I'd SOOO been missing Pierogies and this was an awesome "remake." Edited to add... And those Steelers kicked some butt, didn't they?????
  14. There are too many people involved in eating out who just don't "get" it. I can explain till I'm blue in the face... but someone in the back of the kitchen will invariably put the fried chinese noodles at the bottom of my salad for me to find at the end of the salad (been there) or SOMETHING else that will make me sick. As others have said in the past... if I'm not going to a smaller "mom and pop" restaurant where I've established a good relationship w/ ALL involved in the prep of my food... I can't trust it! It stinks, but there it is.
  15. Nope... there's no cheating on the gluten-free diet... simple as that. I used to hope I might be able cheat occasionally, but the longer I've been gluten-free, the more sensitive I've become. I would NEVER, EVER intentionally cheat now... EVER!!!
