I'm going to my nephew's birthday party and my sister asked my to bring some sort of dessert that is both gluten and dairy free as one of the kids cannot have either. I know the gluten end as I myself as gluten-free, but anyone have any good and kid friendly desserts I could make accommodating both dairy and gluten free????

Jello is safe, but I was thinking more of a dessert like a gluten-free/df cupcake because he couldn't eat the cake. I know how to make good gluten-free cupcakes, but unsure how to make them dairy free.

Is she expecting you to make a gluten-free/Dairy Free Birthday Cake?

I'm pretty sure there are recipes like that on this site if you use the search engine. If not, "Living Without" has some recipes if you register.

If you have seedless watermelons available in your area, it could be cool to carve and decorate a watermelon. You may even be able to stick candles in the rind with those little plastic holders. Here's some fun ideas ...

It's easy and yummy. Just use Earth's Balance spread in place of the butter required and then buy or make chocolate frosting. You will have to read the frosting containers and look for fudge rather than milk chocolate. There were several options that were Gluten-free Casein-free.

I made the yellow cake for my daughter for my birthday. I used Nucoa margarine and also Ener-G egg replacer. Came out well. Have also made the brownies using coconut oil and egg replacer. Tried the cookies but they didn't come out so well. They tasted fine. They just sort of melted into one another.

The cookies were fine for us. I think if they're spreading, it helps to chill them a bit. I think the butter or replacement has to be softened (not melted) for that reason.

Of course now that I'm not doing soy, we've got to figure another way out :)

Jules Shepard has a recipe on her blog for a cake (either white or chocolate) and she's big on substitutions. My link While you may not have her flour, here's the recipe for Nearly Normal Flour, which I think hers is based on.

Here's the link for Celebratory Cakes to give you some ideas from her for a boy's birthday.

My favorite gluten-free/DF/SF goodie is black bean brownies. If you've never tried this recipe from Living Without magazine, you'll be amazed at how wonderful they are. Don't be put off by black beans in dessert. Even if I could eat anything without trouble, I'd still be eating these instead of the ones with flour. They are the best brownies I've ever eaten.

One note: I use top these with ENJOY LIFE gluten-free/DF/SF chocolate chips. But even if you can't find them, they'll still be a hit.

Made the Betty Crocker chocolate cupcakes replacing butter for veggie shortening...mmmmmmm! They were delicious!

However, I am curious to try this black bean recipe in the future when I have some time--whenever that is!

    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      You should be able to slowly reintroduce dairy at this point if your problem is lactose intolerance.  If you have a milk protein (usually casein, but occasionally whey) intolerance, then you might not be able to reintroduce--now or ever.  If you follow cyclinglady's schedule and can't even get past the hard cheeses (cheese is almost all casein with very little lactose), it might give you cause to suspect the problem is casein related.  If, however, you breeze past the hard cheeses and only start to have trouble with the "milkier" items (softer cheeses, ice cream, milk, for sure, etc.) then the issue is probably lactose and should resolve with time.
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Hi Purdue, You've gotten some good advice already.  That functional doctor may help some people, but you are better off to stick with a traditional GI for now IMHO.  You can do some studying and learning on your own by sticking around this forum and reading threads and articles and asking questions.  There is a lot of combined experience among the members. I am not sure where you live, but another thing you can try is finding a local support group for celiac disease.  There may be one close to you that can offer information and support.  Sometimes hospitals sponsor groups and there are also national celiac support groups.  Here is an article on support groups in the US: http://www.celiac.com/articles/227/1/A-List-of-Local-Celiac-Disease-Support-GroupsChapters/Page1.html The usual diagnostic flow is to have the celiac antibodie blood tests, and then an endoscopy to take 5 or so biopsy samples.  The endoscopy is done by a flexible tube they insert through the mouth.  They discourage singing during the endoscopy.   It's an outpatient procedure. I was gluten-free for 3 months before I saw my GI so I didn't have the endoscopy.  But lots of people have had it.  Sometimes they report a sore throat from the procedure. Sometimes there are research trials for celiac treatments and they only want people who have been through the full diagnostic process.  So if you think participating in a medical trial is something you'd want to do that is a consideration. In Britain I think they had a requirement for diagnosis to get a tax consideration on buying gluten-free food some time ago.  I don't know if that is still true though. Sometimes people find it hard to stick to the gluten-free diet without a diagnosis.  A diagnosis might help in the willpower department. If you did go gluten-free now and decided to get tested later they recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten before the endoscopy.  That can be tough to do if you are sick every time you eat gluten.  So it's easier on most people to do the testing up front. But you are right, there is no absolute requirement that you get fully diagnosed to go gluten-free.  It's a lifetime commitment so that may be easier if you know for sure.  Or maybe not.  Some people have such bad symptoms that resolve on a gluten-free diet that it doesn't matter to them if a test shows celiac or not. Lots of info can be found at the University of Chicago celiac center site. http://www.uchospitals.edu/specialties/celiac/
    • Apple Cider Vinegar
      Corn gluten is still gluten and not safe for some. It depends on if you follow the traditional gluten free diet or the strict gluten free diet. Corn gluten can be tolerated by some and not others. 
    • Itchy skin
      Cool compresses may help a bit. Hot baths or showers used to really aggravate my itchy skin so go with warm or cool ones to see if it helps. Keep well hydrated both inside and out. Be sure to check and make sure any lotions you use are gluten free. Shea butter, olive or coconut oil may help. Since you say this is not DH, no blisters etc. I would not advise Dapsone. It is quite a toxic med but if you do talk to your doctor about it make sure that they do blood work before prescribing and frequently during the time you are on it.  Some celiacs have liver impact and Dapsone can be damaging to the liver. I also had both DH and the all over itchies. Being strictly gluten free and avoiding obvious sources of iodine like iodized salt or iodine in supplements will help you heal. I hope you get some relief soon.
    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
