Okay all you fabulous gluten-free cooks out there here is the deal.... as some of you know I have been putting together recipes for some time now to put out cookbook. So far, I have nearly 100 recipes, but I would like to get a few more before I present it to the publisher. So if any of you would like to contribute, I'd love to hear/read your suggestions/recipes.

Please keep in mind that my book is not exactly like the books on gluten-free cooking you find now on the market, mine is more about (somewhat upscale, but not advanced) cooking with fresh ingredients, and it's going to include the following sections:

Hee hee... thanks, I'm so nervous! I am drafting my proposals for the publishers as we speak and I keep thinking what if they hate it? or scarier still what if they love it? I think no matter what the responses are I'm gonna freak out. :P

Kathleen - are you planning on having some ethnic recipes? Since going gluten-free, I really miss going out to ethnic restaurants...I've been worried that the language barrier isssue would be a problem. (I've only gone once... to an Indian restaurant where the manager spoke English well enough). I'd love to learn to make my own Thai/Indian/ etc. foods. Sara

Would you be willing to post your chili rellenos recipe? I have been lusting for some for a long time now, but too nervous to try. good luck with the publishers. If they don;t think there's a market, just tell them to look at this site, and how hungry we all are for info.

I made some "Char Sui Bao's" today (pronounced cha sue bow), they are a Chinese bun filled with barbequed pork. It was the first time I attemped this particular feat. I had been making them for a couple of years before we went gluten free and hadn't made any since because of the challange, but they turned out awsome! Not quite the depth of color that wheat bread will get, but the taste was almost perfect.... I am definately going to put them into my book.... I am also going to work on a wonton skin, something that we can also use for potstickers too, but I need to find the time to experiment more.

Thanks for all the support guys!

Oops, I forgot... Libby, I don't mind posting the rellanos recipe, give me some time to type it up though, I have it tucked into a drawer with my million other recipes and need to pull it out.

It's really easy though.... roast & skin your chilies, then make a slit down the center and stuff them with cheese (I use monterey jack) then dip in rice flour, beaten egg and gluten-free bread crumbs. Pan fry and serve with a chili sauce or sour cream or whatever you prefer. I will post something a little more specific when I organize everything, but don't be afraid to give them a try.

Are you interested at all in some Indian recipes? In South India they make most of their breads from rice and lentils, and they turn out fantastically.

Kathleen-

thanks for being generous with your recipe- I can't wait to try it out!

shimma-

I would love to try out some indain breads. This is the first time in my life I have been excited about baking, or breads. I tried somebody's cinnamon poori recipe yesterday- yum. I did miss cinamon toast. By all means, throw some ideas out there. I will give em a try.

Here is a wonderful gluten-free fried chicken breast recipe.

1. Dust your chicken with a legal flour

2. Roll it in soaked ground flaxseed. (2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 2/3

cup of lukewarm water. Give this mix time to absorb. 4 to 5 minutes.

3. roll it in brown rice bread crumbs. I have only used HOL-GRAIN bread crumbs.

4. Then put in in your pan with olive oil, salt it and cook it. Make sure you have

enough HOT oil so your chicken does not stick.

This is a 5 star out of 5. I make it for company & they love it.

If you want to include this in your recipe book it is ok with me.

Also my favorite gluten-free bread recipe I found on the internet:

http://bread.allrecipies.com/az/lisnsgltnfrbrd.asp

It doesn't have the right consistency for sandwhiches, but if you toast or broil it , it is YUMMY! My whole faimily eats it.

Thanks for all the recipe ideas and the support. I hijacked a Pastry chef friend of mine and she is going to help me expand my dessert section, becuase since I generally only cook "savory" cusine, my dessert section was lacking.

You guys are great!

Kathleen,

Here's a dessert recipe I posted in another thread recently. I've found versions of this recipe in several places, and I particularly like it because it doesn't involve any substitutions -- this is actually a recipe that people who can eat gluten can have. Not that I don't love cake made with gluten-free flour, but sometimes it's nice to just have something like everyone else would. I made this for Christmas this year and my non-celiac parents and their food-snob guests RAVED about it. It's light and airy but intensely flavored.

Here's a flourless recipe that's just incredible:

in heatproof bowl in pan of simmering water, melt 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate with 3 tablespoons water or coffee and 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla.

meanwhile separate 6 eggs and beat the whites into soft peaks.

Thanks Laura!

I have a decadence cake that is very similar, sometimes it's called a fallen souffle cake as well, because of the souffle method used to make it. However, I have never tried to make it into a roll cake and that sounds fantastic.

Just for everyone elses benifit, this cake is awesome served with fresh whipped cream, as suggested by Laura, but also with a raspberry sauce (made by pureeing raspberries, then straining them and adding sugar to taste, may need to heat in sauce pan to melt sugar). It's also very good coated in a chocolate ganache (50% chocolate & 50% heavy cream, melted together), then served with gluten-free vanilla ice cream.

Laura, I would love to see your almond cake recipe, I recently found an almond tart recipe that is really good, but I need to make it gluten-free.

Thanks again!

Well... I have to finish writting it first, but it's nearly there! After that, it goes to print and then you will probably be able to get it anywhere you would buy cookbooks. And I am counting on you to buy it!

Let us know when it comes out, and what the title is. My favorite bookstore has already told me that they will order it for me, if they do not have it in stock.

    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Good idea! Add also the lactulose - mannitol test, to confirm they are/are not experiencing leakyness in the gut, then correlate the results with the symptoms (obviously digestive symptoms would have to be excluded, because diarrhea and bloating will probably be present anyway, due to having damaged intestines). You see, ironically it would be "gluten-free challenge", because possibly systemic symptoms ("leaky gut syndrome")  and GI symptoms start after going IV fluids -> gluten-free (instead of "gluten challenge", which would be gluten-free -> gluten).
             
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      PPIs should not affect your digestion of gluten one way or another. Many folks with celiac disease may have villous damage without obvious symptoms. Others eventually get symptoms after the disease is "activated," but exactly how or why this happens is not yet clearly understood. Biopsies are generally done after someone has symptoms, and likely already has villous damage, so I would imagine your doctor must be necessarily a bit vague about whether you might have "inactive" or "active" celiac disease. The gold standard is to get a biopsy while still eating gluten, and then another after being on a gluten-free diet for some time, to assess whether you heal without gluten in your system. Positive genes and blood work, AND villous atrophy would seem like fairly strong evidence, but that's up to your doctor to determine. If you feel comfortable sharing your test results on the forum, some folks here can give you their two cents. But listen to your doctor! Glutenease might help your digestion, but if you have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, it won't prevent the possible damage that comes with gluten mistakes. Research on l-glutamine is somewhat supportive for healing, but it's not a panacea.  You will read about various levels of sensitivity and prudence here and elsewhere. Eventually you'll come up with a plan that you consider is "safe," but hopefully will still let you get out in the world. Read up on gluten-free groceries and how to deal with restaurants safely, and you ought to be able to find a happy "middle-path" between prudence and paranoia. I'm one of the fairly sensitive/paranoid types at this point in my life. I personally don't worry too much about possibly breathing in gluten, but on the other hand I wouldn't eat anything that's been out where flour is in the air. Nor would I use a shared toaster or fryer. Again, it's important that you form a lifestyle approach that is informed about the risks but still a good life! Most importantly, work with your medical team to determine if you in fact have celiac disease.
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      We are utilizing the "our kitchen is completely gluten free" and DEFINITELY checking every label every time methods. SO glad to hear my DGP should drop!!!! 
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Without reference ranges for the IgA there's no telling wether the IgA or tTG are anything worth while.  I think your best bet is to wait on a call from them for interpretation. I know that's hard but really, they are the ones with all the necessary information.  
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Hello all, new to this site!  My 10 month old son was referred to an endocrinologist as he has consistently failed to chart in both weight and height.  After discussing his symptoms with the endocrinologist (fussiness after eating, diarrhea) she suggested it could be Celiac disease.  She ordered several blood tests to which I have received results that I am not quite sure how to interpret (and of course I haven't heard back and she hasn't returned my messages).  The following abnormal test results I received: Immunoglobulin A:  Less than 8 mg/dl IgA TTG Antibody:  Negative (I've read this can be a false negative if he is IgA deficient?) SGOT/AST:  93 U/L (standard 25-55) SGPT/AST:  49 U/L (standard 13-45) IgF-1/Somatomedin-C:  Less than 25 ng/ml (standard for age range 16 days to 1 year is 55-327) Any insight into what these results mean would be extremely helpful and appreciated!  Also, my son has been exclusively breastfed; if he does, in fact, have Celiac disease is gluten transferred through breast milk?
