Hi there! Newbie to the forum. 

 

Does anyone know any good gluten free recipe apps? Have friends coming over after Christmas and we need some good Christmasy recipes which I can download.

 

Love any that you've tried and feel worked for you.

Sorry, I don't know of any apps, but on this forum, many folks have posted great recipes.  There are plenty of blogs out there too!  I try to avoid the blog recipes that require different blends of gluten-free flours.  

 

I do plenty of baking of goodies and have converted most of my old gluten-containing recipes to gluten-free using Pamela's gluten-free flour.  I try to avoid any all purpose flour that has beans in it. 

 

Looking for desserts?  There's a gluten-free gram cracker crumb manufacturer that will allow you to make your own cheesecake or ice cream cakes using a springform pan.  Find a cheesecake recipe on Bon Appetite and you'll be sure to get raves and they are easy to make!

 

Attended a party last night.  I brought ham rolls (ham, cream cheese, green onions or aspargus stalks), and crispy bacon wrapped dates stuffed with almonds.  So many options!

Just something simple and quick - we'll probably do a roast so that's ok, but it would be nice to have some gluten free stuffing or similar and maybe something for dessert?

Have you ever made risotto?  It is actually quite simple, but they make gluten-free box mixes that are really good, I use lundberg brand.  Says gluten free prominently on the box.  

 

A nice holiday side dish is au gratin potatoes, just use a regular recipe, and use corn starch in the sauce instead of flour.  I can vouch that this works well.  If you are in a gluten-eating kitchen, I would buy a new container of corn starch (its cheap) since all that powdery stuff floofs all over and you don't want to feed your friend gluten by accident if they are sensitive.  Here is a good recipe:  http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/cheesy-au-gratin-potatoes/f2665027-8485-4153-bdea-da9c427a4d44    (I have made that with parmesean cheese, too.  And bacon/cheddar)

 

Mashed potatoes are naturally gluten-free as well.  Just boil peeled potatoes that are cut up, until soft.  Mash with butter, milk/cream, and salt and pepper.  You can make them garlic mashed potatoes by boiling whole garlic cloves with it and mashing them with the potatoes.  

 

Something I like to serve with fancy roasts is haricots verts- or fresh french green beans.  You can steam/boil them for a few minutes, then sautee them with garlic and butter in a pan.  Be careful to not burn the garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. 

 

If you want to make gluten-free stuffing, you can use your regular recipe and use gluten-free bread.  I would cut up the bread into cubes and toast it in the oven before adding it into the mix because gluten-free bread can get mooshy.  If your grocer carries Udis brand that works well.  It is kept in the freezer and has a yellow/blue label.  But any gluten-free bread you find should work fine.  Also in the stuffing recipe, it may call for broth, and not all broths are gluten free.  Look for stock in the square containers, a lot of those gourmet brands will say "gluten free" on the box.  Here is the stuffing recipe I made for Thanksgiving, it is in a slow cooker but it would work just as well  in the oven:

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/11/perfect-homemade-stuffing-crockpot.html

 

And for dessert, I know the perfect chocolate-lovers recipe.  Flourless chocolate cake.  Make it with the ganace on top like it has here:   http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/flourless-chocolate-cake-recipe  and serve with sliced strawberries.  If your friend is a sensitive celiac they may not be comfortable eating something made in the same pan as gluten baked goods, you may want to ask them first.   I have my mother in law make everything in disposable foil pans when I come over, it solves part of that problem.

 

Another less-involved dessert idea would be a sundae bar, really good if there are a lot of people.  Get ice cream, bananas, chocolate syrup, various fruit, and let everyone go to town making what they want.  

 

I would like a banana split now after talking about that!  Hope all my ideas helped ya :)

I used Rudi's stuffing this year for Thanksgiving and made the second recipe on the list, the Laura's whatever. The apple in it seemed a little weird when I was making it, but I did it anyway and it turned out perfect. Of course, you have to find Rudi's stuffing, which I found in all of my local health food stores, but none of the regular grocery stores. http://www.rudisbakery.com/gluten-free/blog/category/gluten-free-savory-herb-stuffing-recipes/

 

Other than stuffing, I mostly just make the same everything I've always made for the holidays with the exception of green bean casserole which I simply skip. It's just meat + veggies + gravy + stuffing. The only issue there is the stuffing. Dessert is as easy as a crustless pumpkin pie or cheesecake.

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
