  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. YES YES YES! My brothers and mother were tested after I was diagnosed, they didn't have symptoms but had all the damage that comes with it, villi were gone, bones were affected, so have them tested
  3. This is my all time favorite: 1 Cup Sugar 1/2 C. light corn syrup 1/4 C. water 1/2-3/4 tsp. cinnamon .............. 1/2 C. evaporated milk In a small saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup, water and cinnamon Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly, cook and stir for 2 minutes more, remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes, stir in the evaporated milk Makes 1 2/3 cups
  4. That is what happened to my brother, after I was diagnosed and then my mother was my brother went in to have the biopsy, his villi was gone and his bones had been affected, yet he had no other symptoms. It's good that you found out while he is young so the diet will be easier for him to follow. I would ask that the doctor test you, his father and any siblings.
  5. I think you also need to double check you are not somehow ingesting gluten, double check everything. Also, if you are not healing it could be refactory sprue, which may mean you need to be on steriods, that is what happened with me and now I am fine
  6. I think it's worth letting the doctor know, just don't blame him. My mom had gotten really sick a couple of years ago so I took her to the doctor, I asked him to check her for celiac, although her symptoms were not the same as mine, and he poo=pooed me, but did the blood test. I told him I had been diagnosed by both blood and biopsy, he said he didn't really believe in celiac, anyway long story short he took the blood along with checking for deadly diseases and when we went back 2 weeks later her blood work had come back highly positive and he had educated himself on the disease. My brother also went to the doctor and the doctor asked why would you want to go on such an awful diet if you aren't sick, Anyway, after my mom was diagnosed he went in for testing, his villi was gone, it had started affecting his bones, all without any symptoms. So, if it helps one person it's worth telling him in my opinion.
  7. Boxing Day

    Has anyone ever heard of the British English Crackers and are they used in the celebration of Boxing Day? They look like they are a lot of fun, I was thinking of using them next Christmas!

  10. Hi Becca and welcome: Have you been diagnosed with Celiac? For me the pain when I am glutened is like a knife twisting in the lower left area of my abdomen. But I have had the symptom's that you describe.
  11. Mix And Store

    Hi Julie: I have been gone for a while also, but am back now. Hope you are doing ok? I have had the best luck with the flour from Authentic Foods, Bob's just doesn't seem to bake as well for me. I use the bean flour to make pizza crust and bread. That is the Garfava flour. I like making up a bunch of different flours and then it's easy to use for baking. I make the mixes up from Analise's Roberts cookbook: (gotta give her credit) For the bean flour use I use: 1 c. garfava bean flour 1 c. sorghum flour 1 c. millet flour 1 c. cornstarch 1 c. potato flour 1 c. tapioca flour This recipe makes 6 cups of flour . I keep it in a container on the kitchen counter and then use as needed. I add 1/2 Tbs. of xanatham gun to every cup of flour that the recipe calls for I have been told that the flour goes bad after a couple of months but haven't had that problem yet. The flour I don't mix up I keep in the freezer until needed. The bean flour does have a stronger taste. It makes really good bread though. Mostly I use a mixture of extra finely ground brown rice flour, potato starch and tapioca flour because I mostly like to bake sweets as my rapidly expanding waist will attest to! I was wondering if other people have a problem with Bob's flours or if I am just doing something wrong? it just seems I have the best luck with Authentic Foods flours. I just ordered their multi blend flour that has xanatham gum mixed in with it so will be curious as to how well it works Anyway, glad you are back I was just wondering if it would work to mix up the flour I use for baking and store that in the freezer? Does anybody do that?
