Irish, you and I would make a great cooking team, wouldn't we? We'd scope out all the unusual cool ingredients at the specialty shops and markets (making sure they are good and expensive) and cook our little hearts out.

Meals less than 3 ingredients? Heck, I know very well that both you and I can use up to 30 ingredients in a dish, let alone a meal. Bring on the complex, difficult, challenging and downright nearly impossible and we will DO IT! :D

I am not as eager about the "complex and difficult" as you are, hon. I DO like a good challenge, however.

I still am not quite sure what I said that made Karen think I said a meal could not be less than 3 ingredients (but I will claim short term memory loss from celiac) :lol: but I think it is possible to have one. A plain burger, a baked potato with butter isn't so bad, I guess??.

the current one is Dec/Jan and has cookies on the front

Do you mean

Oct/Nov (That was the Thanksgiving Hoilday Issue)

or Aug/Sept.

I can download it and email it you (PDF)

I searched the magazine's site for you. There is no red velvet cheesecake recipe coming up.

I looked, too, both the index of the my last several issues and online. No red velvet cheesecake recipe to be found. http://www.livingwit...s/archives.html

Thanks for the house with the gorgeous kitchen! Who wants to tackle this building project? Are we going to become a commune of our own?

Those muffins sound delicious! :)

I think Karen should volunteer her hub, like she did for plowing snow. :)

The muffins are good, especially warm after a few min. out of the oven. I use Pamela's pumpkin bread recipe and make them into muffins. Easier. No slicing.

Seriously, can you imagine how happy we would all be?

A truly gluten-free community --sharing our recipes and eating and drinking together and never once worrying we were getting sick from it all?

Pure nirvana.

The only thing we would have to worry about is our tight pants....which brings us back to those muu muus..... :lol:

Before it gets too crazy and busy (my Mom is coming tomorrow)...

Happy Thanksgiving ,Everyone!!

..... or as Jacques Pepin and the icon that is Julia Child say: Happy Cooking and Bon Appetite!

I had a chef friend in Boston who used to say: if we cannot afford to live like kings, we can, at least, eat like them

Enjoy!xxoo .

I'll go cry now... I have no idea. A lady let me flip through it but I was was so distracted and frustrated by other things I didn't write it down. I just remember thinking that it isn't a big deal to contact the magazine and ask for a copy. This almost calls for breaking out the headbanging pony.

ETA: The one I have is not one of the ones I see listed on their website either. I have the Gluten-Free Holidays one with the blue cover. I suppose she could have been talking about the Thanksgiving one, I don't know. I'm so confused.

okay, do not panic!! (quoted by Douglas Adams... and IH, too) Panic serves no purpose.

What do you need? a cheesecake with red velvet cake in it? (never heard of that, but hey, Lovey can figure it out)

or do you want A Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese frosting?

babe, those are easy peasy!!!

Maybe the lady was confused and it wasn't a Living Without magazine she was carrying around in her purse at all. The picture though was clearly a cheesecake, that was red. I usually have tiramisu for my birthday but making a cheesecake seems far more simple. And I would have the added bonus of having made cream cheese so I could have bagels for breakfast. I googled a little and found red velvet cheesecake brownies. Those could be a perfectly adequate replacement if they have to be. Who would complain about brownies?

Until then, maybe I'll have to make myself a champagne and strawberry cake to soothe myself. Clearly not just for New Year's celebrations!

Tonight, leftovers. That is the best reason to cook a turkey right? We never made it to the pumpkin pie shakes last night. My husband's cat went missing and we both went out in the rain for a bit looking for him but neither of us felt up to shakes. The jerk came home today acting all like nothing ever happened. Cats. <_< So shakes tonight with our leftovers.

Oh, for pete's sake, Addy! I told you a thousand times, it's not leftovers, it's "encores" :lol:

Cats do not care what we think..I have worried myself sick over Bella when she wanders....and she always comes home.

and finally....make pumpkin muffins, or bread or pie....shakes are not that great in winter...

They are okay in the summer, but in winter, nah.....they are fleeting and cold...It's like reading a sexy novel, with the window open in December.....goosebumps, shivering and no satisfaction.

Time to kick someone's ass. Went to go back thru copies of Living Without to look for the missing Red Velvet recipe and found that my dear hubby has tossed this year's collection - now I'm not saying there are not things worth tossing laying about - but why does he always pick things that piss me off?

I think we'll designate him as our dishwasher after he finishes building custom homes for us all -- of course he loves to cook as much as I do so we may need to hire a cabana boy to poor wine, champagne, shake martinis, do the dishes and shovel the snow!

Speaks to me, too. On the airline, breakfast beverage cart arrives, coffee?? tea?? (always with loads of caffeine because they want to wake you up and get you outta there!) or juice?? nope, not that either, I always ask for the sparkling wine -- oh, how they hate to open that if still corked :P -- and those in the vicinity all look at this lush who is having "champagne" for breakfast. Well, I know, I could have just water, but I am celebrating that I am about to be let out of this crate :lol:

Edy's has Pumpkin Ice Cream (limited edition) which is really quite good! I served it to company with ginger snaps. I personally prefer ice cream in the winter with a good movie. B)

Meatloaf tonight. Hunts Meatloaf Sauce (with some added spices) and ground beef makes a great, EASY and moist meal.

And shoveling snow may be good exercise, but we will get plenty when I drag you all out on the slopes -- ummm -- this snow you speak of will be resort adjacent, right?

Dinner for my men is nightshade free chicken enchiladas (cream/garlic sauce), refried beans from scratch and salad.

Endless spaghetti squash encores for me - basil spinach garlic almond pesto tonight :)

    • Awok, Welcome to the forum.  Have you considered trace gluten?  Here is a study on the topic: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/pdf/1471-230X-13-40.pdf It could explain why you felt good for a while.  I personally was glutened badly last summer.  I have no idea what got me.  I suspect either a prescription medication or one gluten free product (not certified).  I ended up on a whole foods diet and avoided even certified processed gluten-free foods including grains until I was healed (three to six months).  
    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
