  1. New Beginnings

    [font="Georgia"]While spending my year in Korea, I created a blog to document my experiences. It was soo much fun. Now that I'm no longer in Korea, I miss creating blog entries. I decided to write about food. Since I love food and love to cook, why not help other people. Obviously, all my recipes are gluten free. Some people think that eating gluten free has to be expensive or maybe they have no idea what to make. This is where I can help. [/font] [url=""][/url] [font="Georgia"]It's brand new and I'm thinking of new recipes to add everyday. Mostly, it's a fun hobby that keeps me busy. [/font]

  3. Changes

    Wow, so I was just re-reading my old entries... boy have I changed. I no longer give a crap if people around me eat pizza because I don't want to feel bad anymore. If I do have these cravings for certain foods, I have learned to make them myself. Even my husband loves my gluten-free pizza! My changed attitude over the years is attributed to learning as many different recipes and varieties of food I possibly can. Before discovering I was Celiac I had never tried Thai food... now, I LOVE Thai food. The best part is that most Thai food is gluten-free.
  4. is loving my thrifty cooking. :-)

  5. I have been in Korea for 9 days now and I haven't been this sick in years. I have done research for months now before I moved, but being here it's sooo difficult. If I never left my apartment to eat, I'd be fine. I love cooking and even experimenting with new dishes... that's great! But we don't know anyone here... and my husband wants to go out with our new coworkers and other people we meet. Everything I think that is gluten-free... isn't. it's sneaky... it's in EVERYTHING here! I guess I was just feeling sorry for myself tonight and needed someone that understood.
  6. I'm Moving To Korea

    Thank you, I hadn't even thought about missions or anything like that. Thank goodness I enjoy cooking.
  7. My husband and I are moving to South Korea for a year to teach english. I've been doing some research and it is very discouraging. Most everything I find is made of soy sauce, bean paste... and even most of their rice noodles contain wheat. Anyone have any advice... suggestions?
  8. Dizziness

    Yes! and this is something that I've experienced as a child. My doctors told my parents that I'd have to "get used to" and to "be careful not to get up too fast..." because they said nothing was wrong with me. Since I've gone gluten free my dizziness has seriously reduced, and I no longer get car sick like i used to do.
  9. Perfume?

    Well I hadn't had any problems either... but it never hurts to ask. Thanx
  10. Thanx, I've been meaning to try quinoa... never had it (and I even have a box in my cabinet waiting to fix)
  11. Northwest Va Or East Wva?

    I'm from Huntington... and I totally understand the part about no one knowing what I'm talking about half the time. I have friends in Shepherds Town and visit up there in your neck of the woods all the time. It's good to see a fellow West Virginian on here. Take care.
  12. Does anyone know about perfumes? Since they are alcohol, does that mean I'd have to find out what type of alcohol, or how it's made... or are all/most perfumes gluten-free? Hmm.. I just read someone's post about beauty products, and this is something that I've never even thought about before.
  13. I'm always confused about the modified food starch too... unless it specifically says modified corn starch or potato starch, I usually call the company to find out for sure. As for the caramel... they say it's gluten free if it's made in the USA, but to avoid it when it's made elsewhere because they can't guarantee that it hasn't been contaminated.
  14. I do eat more simple starches now... because I used to eat 'whole grain' and supposedly good for me wheats, where as now all I tend to eat is rice and potatoes. I guess I've still got a ton of learning to do.
  15. This happens usually late in the evening. I really don't eat alot of protein unless I'm at home because at work the only thing I can eat is a baked potato or salad, unless I bring something from home. Could this be from not enough protein in my diet? I will most certainly start packing my lunch everyday if this is the case.
