Anyone ever crave something gluteny, that if you were ever allowed to cheat, would never be worth it?

I just had a random craving for Spaghetti-Os...gak!!

EDIT: Just to clarify... this is for a disgusting gluteny food that for some reason you're craving and would never be worth a cheat...like Twinkies? :D

Pizza is my all-time crave. I would think after not having it for a couple of years, the craving would be gone, but nope, I just die everytime I see a pizza commercial on tv. I keep telling myself I'm going to throw caution to the wind and just give in to it but I just never do, for one reason or another. Its cetainly not a strong, decision making skill....because I STILL WANT IT!

I always say if I ever go back to Key West I think I may have to consider the chocolate dipped frozen key lime pie. It was the best thing I ever ate and I'm not sure I could turn it down! lol!

Macaroni and cheese. You know the kind in the cardboard box with the unnaturally day-glo orange cheese powder in it? This was my favorite as a kid and my comfort food as an adult. I'm being super careful with dairy and cheese while I heal but, man, do I miss this. I actually moaned a little when I walked by it at the grocery store the other day, such is my longing.

O sticky, gooey, powdery cheese product.

The only thing I crave that I can't find a gluten free version of is phyllo. I would love to scarf down a whole package of raspberry turnovers or a sheet of baklava.

Amy's ( i think thats the brand) makes a gluten-free Rice mac & cheese- a smaller box with the fluorescent powdered cheese, and a bigger box with the squeeze cheese... works for me :)

Fresh, crusty French bread. Anyone know how to get that French bread crust and the fluffy inside gluten-free?

My cornbread recipes have not changed. I make spoonbread or an old-fashioned buttermilk cornbread. Need a recipe, Rowena, or are you still off of dairy?

Ooh I'd much like a recipe... And no I ain't off dairy completely. (Just mostly, kinda like I always have been...My moms lactose intolerant, so I kind of grew up dairy free, but I occasionally eat a bite of cheese, or something. Not much though) But I'm good at substitutions should I feel like I need to use something else...

Rowena, I have a good gluten free cornbread recipe (just cornmeal no other non-gluten flours) that I have made dairy free using a variety of nondairy milks. It is a very forgiving recipe too.

My craving would have to be the chicken & daumplings I used to make. I have made other recipes and they are good, just a different style of dumplings. My recipe used 6 cups of AP flour and I just hate to use that much gluten-free flour on one dish.

Raven-

I'm 33 years old and I was diagnosed 3 years ago... and I didn't truly find my cooking "mojo" until I was gluten free. I love watching Food Network TV and I pride myself on the fact that I've been able to make almost any recipe I see in a gluten free version.

UNTIL you see those Phyllo dough recipes.... my partner is Greek, so he grew up with it. And it's impossible... there really is no gluten-free substitute! Sad...

Building off that, I love to watch the show "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on food network... and the Neely's were scarfing down a huge piece of pound cake with caramel sauce all over it.... and it looked SOOO good. I wanted a big huge bite, but then I realized that I could make it if I wanted to :)

That sounds really good! Lat week, I made a spice cake and topped it with homemade caramel frosting. So good!

Old-fashioned Cornbread

2 c cornmeal

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp sugar or honey

2 eggs

2 c fresh buttermilk

2 Tbsp butter

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Melt butter in 9x9 pan or cast iron skillet. Mix dry ingredients. Add eggs and buttermilk and mix. Swirl the melted butter in the pan to grease it and then pour the melted butter into the batter and mix briefly. Pour bread in pan and bake 25-35 minutes. Remove from pan and cool. Traditional recipes use bacon grease instead of butter - if you do that leave out the salt.

I'm not sure how this would work without the buttermilk, but if you're good at substitutions maybe you can get it to work.

I recently received a breadmaker as a late birthday present , it has a gluten free mode on it and has different gluten free bread mix recipes , it's AMAZING , the bread tastes great. On Sunday I made some bread with the Juvela all purpose mix and the bread tasted really really good. I said after trying a slice it tasted like french bread :) Do you have a breadmaker ?

DONUTS...though I didn't indulge before I went gluten-free, because of the calories. Now...I just might! (But they have to be the yeast...raised ones, not the cake ones!)

What kids of dumplings do you like? If it's not the big fluffy ones...I have a good recipe. It's for egg noodles, but made a little thicker, they are like the chicken and dumplings I made before being gluten-free. (If it's the big fluffy ones...I thought I saw a recipe...let me keep looking in my cookbooks)

Christi, I'll take your recipe too!!! Thanks! As for dumplings, I have an amazing recipe for them, but I have yet to adapt to gluten-free so when I do, I'll hand it over. (Assuming it is successful of course.)

Tennisman- try making a recipe without the gluten free setting, it works too, and I think it tastes better. In fact Pamelas bread mix tells you NOT to use the gluten-free setting. But anyway....

I have a breadmaker and I can make good fresh bread, but mine doesn't make the French bread crust right even with wheat. I loved the fresh baked baguettes in France, and I'm after the real deal. Long, thin bread, with a chewy, shiny crust and that fluffy, holey inside that's so soft it's hard to even butter. Even if I do a French style bread with wheat in my bread machine, the shape of the loaf is all wrong so you don't get all the crust. I used to make passable baguettes by setting up the dough in the bread machine and then baking in my oven with a pan of water at 450F for steam. I've played with gluten-free flours a bit but the texture of gluten-free baguettes I've made don't come close to the real thing.

    • cadbury eggs?
      According to last year's Coeliac UK Food and Drink Directory they both are safe foods for us - I haven't got this year's though.   I do react  if I am glutened but have never had any problem with Creme Eggs - and  I bought some just after Christmas.  If you are anywhere else in the world maybe they change the ingredients but I would say you are fine in the UK..     
    • Glucose Tablets
      According to RelioOn, they do offer Gluten free glucose tablets website info   Lar
    • 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.
