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. :(

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
