Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

Ann Byrn was on a local radio talk show here this week and she convinced a non-Celiac host that gluten-free can be tasty. I need to find a couple more books to order thru Edward Hamilton to justify the shipping costs. Are there other gluten-free cookbooks any of you can recommend?

One of my neighbors gave me that book to give to my daughter.
She had made a gluten-free and a regular strawberry cake and the host liked the gluten-free better.

I received my copy of this book this week and the recipes all look so good and easy to make. One note, this is a dessert cookbook and all recipes start with a gluten-free boxed cake mix, usually yellow. The only items from scratch are the icings, glazes and fillers.

Glad you mentioned that - boxed cake mixes are such a turn off for me - definitely will not be getting this book! Love to bake/cook from scratch.

The Culinary Institute of America's gluten-free baking book is good - it includes recipe for cannoli, yeast/other breads, eclairs, bagels and so on. One of my favourites! Also like Annalise Roberts' book.

Awesome! I hope you enjoy it. It contains so many recipes I have not seen elsewhere before and is written by a chef who really knows food science and what he is doing. :)

Glad to be of help. I mostly quit baking from scratch about 25 years ago, probably because somewhere deep down I realized everything was having an adverse effect on me, and switched to mixes for what little I did bake. These days for purposes other than baking I am learning to use the substitutes for wheat flour. Some of the sauces look a little strange without the opacity but their flavor has been declared delicious by my husband, so we have basically become a totally gluten-free household. The one thing I do want to find is a good bread recipe. I never was a big bread eater but I use it for hot browns, meatloaf and stuffing so it cannot be sweet. The other thing I would like a tried and true recipe for is angel food cake.

I have the Culinary Institute book, but never use it. Many of the recipes are very complex and call for ingredients that I can't find.
I love the Cake Doctor book. I'm going to make the carrot cake today.
Another book I like is Carol Fenster's 100 Best Gluten Free Recipes.

I have not yet tried making gluten-free angel food cake. Roben Ryberg has a recipe for angel food cake in The Gluten-Free Kitchen and http://www.food.com/ has a few recipes. Plus I saw this one on Taste of Home (it had great reviews):

Gluten-Free Angel Food Cake Recipe


Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 3/4 cup plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Assorted fresh fruit, optional
Directions
Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, flours and potato starch together twice; set aside.

Add cream of tartar, salt and vanilla to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.

Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.

Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. Top with fresh fruit if desired.

Yield:
16 servings.

Sylvia, this looks like a wonderful recipe and I cannot wait to try it. The only other one I had found called for brown rice flour and I find that rather gritty, or at least what our local co-op carries in bulk is.

I also had no idea Taste of Home was now providing gluten-free recipes. I used to enjoy their magazine and still use a number of recipes from it, my favorite being green pepper steak which I converted from slow cooker to stove top. And it has always been gluten-free, even before I realized I needed that, as it is thickened with corn starch and I serve it over rice.
