good article, though there were some things in there that made me sad, like her mentioning that she can not have a homemade birthday cake? That's just not true!!! Can I get ahold of this girl and tell her about Pamela's deluxe brownie mix that you can make a cake with???

Great article! I had the same reaction you did Nini - no birthday cake - that's so not true. I just had a birthday a few weeks ago and had a wonderful gluten-free cake.

every year since my dx and my daughter's we have had the most MAAAAHHHVELOUS birthday cakes... I've even served cakes and cupcakes at her preschool that got RAVE reviews from everyone... all the kids begged for more and all the adults in the building just HAD to have the most delicious moistest cake they'd ever tried!!!! LOL And I almost always use Pamela's Brownie mix and follow the directions on the bag to make it into a cake. My other fave cake is The Gluten Free Pantry's Old Fashioned Cake and Cookie mix... makes awesome white cakes and sugar cookies.

I can't have sugar so Pamela's cakes aren't for me. My favorite gluten-free sugar free recipe for cake is the Harvest Muffins in "Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults" by Connie Sarros. It is wonderful. Everytime it's made I have to fight my family and friends to get a piece (I'm the only gluten-free person). :lol:

I had the same response--What? No birthday cake?! Her typical days' meals look a little bleak to me too. Maybe she is picky, though like my kids. Jeeeez, even a pie with a meringue crust or something like that! Great article, though. McD's are trying hard to cover their butts with all this "double-speak", huh? I seriously smell major law suits and I'm not even a lawyer.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
