these are good. Gluten eaters will like them. If you are going to share any food, take yours first. Or easier, just bring a separate portion for yourself that you keep away from gluteny fingers and crumbs.

These are a few that I have handy:

Banana Split Cheesecake

Ingredients:

2 packages no-bake cheese cake mix (Throw away the crust and create your own with Gluten Free Graham Crackers/cookies or just omit the crust altogether)

How about a Flourless Chocolate Cake? My gluten-eating friends love it.

This coffeecake was outstanding and it did not need refrigeration:

I used extra dark brown sugar for the topping and did not have any nuts. It was probably my favorite gluten-free dessert ever. Right up there with Pumpkin Bars.

Here's a nice summer dessert:

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

3/4 cup gluten-free pretzels

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

crush pretzels to pieces about 1/4 inch maximum

mix together

press into bottom of greased 8 X 8 inch pan

bake 350 F for about 7 minutes

cool about 1 hour

4 oz cream cheese

1/4 cup sugar

8-9 oz Cool Whip

whip cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy

fold in Cool Whip (add more to taste if you want)

spread across pretzel layer (save a little for garnish if desired)

refrigerate 15 minutes or longer

1 small package strawberry Jello

1 cup hot water

1 large package frozen strawberries (without juice)

or sliced fresh strawberries - about 1/2 pint

dissolve jello in water, then add strawberries

after it thickens a little, pour over cream cheese layer

refrigerate 2 hours minimum

If using fresh strawberries, wash, cut (as desired) and put in freezer

15 minutes or longer to help the Jello begin to set quickly

You can reserve a small amount of the jello mix and add to the cream cheese layer to make it pink.

Another one - this looks and tastes like it took a lot of trouble to make, but really is not hard. Although as we are baking in 100+ temps outside, the thought of turning my oven on....

Petite White Chocolate Cranberry Scones

2 cups gluten-free flour blend

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp lemon or orange zest

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter/margarine

3/4 cup whipping cream

3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

3/4 cup gluten-free white baking chips

1/2 cup gluten-free white baking chips

2 tsp shortening

Heat oven to 400oF

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, zest and salt in a large bowl

Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs

Stir in cream, mix in

Stir in cranberries and 3/4 cup white baking chips

Knead dough 5-10 times until smooth

Divide dough into 4 equal pieces

Shape each piece into a 8 X 1 inch log

Cut each log into 4 pieces (2 inch each)

Cut each 2-inch piece in half diagonally

Place on ungreased baking sheet at least 1 inch apart

Bake 9-11 minutes - golden brown around the edges

Cool completely

Mix 1/2 cup baking chips and 2 shortening in small microwaveable bowl

Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds at a time until melted

Stir and drizzle scones with melted chocolate

gluten-free Flour Blend (or use your favorite)

2 cups white rice flour

2/3 cup potato starch

1/3 cup tapioca starch

2 tsp Xanthan gum

----------------------------------------------------------------

One more comment - I make a lot of good desserts, but honestly, what everyone seems to go for the most is when I make gluten-free brownies. Nothing special about the recipe, but I top with a very thin layer of chocolate frosting and Heath bar pieces.

How about individual pavlovas? They are so pretty and tasty. Or using some meringue make Eton Mess. gluten-free shortbread with panna cotta or semifreddo is nice. Butterscotch or chocolate brownies dressed with maybe a raspberry coulis or caramel are awesome. I've made chocolate chip cookie dough brownies and they are deliciuos. I've been making lots of granita and Strawberry/Raspberry Fool. Or make chocolate chip cookies and turn them into ice cream sandwiches. gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are delicious and easy to make from scratch. Maybe chocolate truffles?

Most cheesecakes can easily be made gluten-free and so can Angel Food cake (yummy with a glaze, buttercream or 7-Minute frosting).

    • Confused
      Your doctor is woefully mis-informed.  First of all you did get a positive on both (barely on the TTG IGA).  That does not mean you should be referred to a dietician.  You should be referred to a GI to run either the full celiac blood panel (your GP can not order it at Kaiser) and schedule you for an endoscopy to obtain four to six biopsies to confirm celiac disease which is the GOLD standard level of care. Read the research here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Ask your doctor for a GI referral.  Show them the print out out from the University of Chicago.  Be nice, but they'll do it.   Also, did your GP run a IGA deficiency test?  Do you have those results?   Best to email your doctor.  Reqest a GI referral.  Once it is in writing, your doctor has to act.  Let him know that what is required for a proper diagnosis per leading celiac research centers and the American GI Association. http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ DO NOT GO GLUTEN FREE UNTIL ALL TESTING IS DONE!  This is so critical.  Otherwise the tests will be invalid.  Then you'll be in diagnostic limboland!   After your GI consult, you can ask to be tested for vitamin and mineral levels.  Spend time learning about celiac disease and the gluten diet.  Learn about cross contamination and hidden sources of gluten. Again, DO NOT GO GLUTEN FREE YET!  You can do anything you like, of course, but get the facts first!     
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      I too have more neuro than gastro symptoms...its so weird. I hope we both find answers soon!
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      My celiac diagnosis started with me seeking medical attention for an ongoing migraine problem. This lead to MRI's that showed white spots on my brain which lead to blood work that showed a positive ANA (1:640) and a trip to the rheumatologist. The rheumatologist suggested the biopsy and a referral to a GI specialist after he felt confident that I didn't have lupus. The funny thing is that I don't have severe tummy troubles. I have some bloating occasionally and gas along with differing bowel patterns but that's about it. The most annoying and troublesome symptoms for me are migraines, fatigue and sometimes I get a little achy. My results for the prometheus test were high, blood anti-bodies were present and my biopsy revealed Grade B2 villi damage (the worst classification according to Corazza, Roberts, Ensari). Anyway I guess what I am wondering is how long after being "glutened" will I have a migraine, vitamin deficiency or other neurological symptom so that I will know that I am in trouble? I feel like if I had the tummy trouble to go with this I would know when I have eaten something that has been cross-contaminated. I just want to heal soon and not risk further intestinal damage or lymphoma. Thanks for your reply!
    • ANA and Celiac
      Does anyone know if the positive ANA(1:640) I had back in January could be connected to my celiac diagnosis two weeks ago? Does ANA change with celiac or just other AI issues? Thanks!
    • Confused
      Hello,  I'm new to the forum and new to gluten/celiac. I had some abdominal discomfort a couple weeks ago and my doctor (Kaiser) at the last second said he'd also test my blood for gluten issues. Bottom line, last Sunday night i get the results which I didn't quite understand. TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 1.06 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.91 Index <=0.90 Index Then i get an email from him saying you tested celiac positive, I'm referring you to a dietitian for a gluten free lifestyle (head exploded). After scouring the internet for days, I've read my fair share of good and bad celiac articles. Right now it seems like kaiser just wants me to go gluten-free which is fine if I have celiac disease, but I'm not sure what the numbers indicate or how bad they are, or how much potential damage has been done. Has anyone gone through a similar process? Do I need to ask for further tests?  I'm still in shock a bit I guess but really feel like I'm in the dark and reading everying on WebMD and other celiac sites gives me hope and crushes my dreams at the same time. By the way I'm 35 and male, if that matters.   Thanks

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
