Finally got the "I can't believe it's gluten-free" cookbook.  Hubs made the peanut butter cookies in the recipe.  He made them with butter so they are pretty flat and gooy but at least they aren't like eating sand. They taste fine.  I have a flour mix that a friend put together for me (she has been gluten-free for several years).  I want him to use his regular recipe and see how it goes.  I have some hope that the Christmas baking will be ok :D.

It's really hard to sub gluten-free flour blend for regular flour in recipes.  I think you're better off searching for gluten-free recipes.  I've found some very good ones (and some bad ones).

The recipe was basically the same, but called for butter vs using Crisco shortening like he normally does.  I am not a fan of cookies made with butter--just too gummy and greasy.  My friend that mixed the flours for me said she uses her normal recipes and adds Xantan Gum appropriately.  I've had her baking and they are fine.

It will be less of a chore as time goes on.  Glad we can inspire you with recipes.... here is a gluten-free but totally not healthy one:

 

Last I googled bacon and hot dogs because I had both in my fridge, which is unusual, and got this: http://www.plainchicken.com/2013/06/cheesy-bacon-wrapped-hot-dogs.html

 

So I stuffed them with cheddar, wrapped in uncooked bacon... baked and and they were really good!  Had them on the canyon bakehouse hot dog buns, which are really good.  too bad I only bought one package when I did my bread order.  I also make banana nut muffins since I had some brown bananas that needed used up.  Those never last long, so good when they are warm!

 

Tonight I am going to make chicken stir fry.

We used to make those hot dogs all the time when we were little.  I LOVED those (and forgot about them).

Bought a gluten-free cook book with tons of crock pot recipes. Asking for the Gluten free on a Shoestring books for Christmas. Tonight some pasta with tomato and basil. Laura, when and if I can do lactose again I will try the hotdogs.

Tonight I'll be having my usual light supper (after having a huge lunch). It'll be a grilled cheese on Canyon Bakehouse 7-grain. (I traded in two loaves of that horrible Mountain White.)

 

And I can now say that the very BEST grilled cheese sandwiches are made with Udi's multi-grain. I've tried the Schar and it's OK, and although I love the Canyon Bakehouse 7-grain at room temperature or toasted, the Udi's grills up nicer and tastes better with all that gooey cheese melted between the slices.

 

The cat will be disappointed because we won't be having cod tonight. Looks like she'll have to make do with cat food. :lol:

Had pancakes and bacon. I thought I had some of the Bisquick gluten-free mix but I didn't, but I found some Krusteaz in the cupboard.  They were good, on the sweetside, but so are their gluten mixes.  They are heavy and they don't bubble up like gluten ones so it's a new learning curve to cook them :D.

I made cheeseburgers on Canyon bakehouse buns... the best ones out there by far, no toasting needed.  Carrots on the side.  I also made these italian almond cookies today, I don't remember where I first saw them, some gluten-free website or facebook thing had pointed out this contest winning recipe was gluten-free.  http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/taste/recipes/284646961.html

They are really good.  If I make them again I will ease up on the almond extract.

I had some leftover pancake mix that I put in the fridge overnight and made some for breakfast.  The mix held up overnight and the pancakes were actually a little lighter this morning.  Nice to know :D

 

Pork chops tonight--not sure what I'm going to serve with them, probably zucchini.

I roasted some red peppers with onions and broccoli and grilled some nice sized portobello mushroom caps for dinner last night but somewhere along the way yesterday I must have eaten lactose or gluten because I wasn't able to eat dinner :( still working on feeling better today. Probably try some veggie stuffed chicken tonight and roasted potatoes, maybe I will be able to pick at it. :(

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      I have an omelette every  morning and mix up the filling, different stir fried veggies, spinach, avocado etc.  Super nutritious and can keep me going all day if need be.   I went awhile after gluten-free before eating cereal and now I eat it with coconut milk, Tesco's own brand is nice enough. Maybe an option if you want to experiment with avoiding dairy for awhile whilst you heal? Best of luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
