Potstickers - dumplings, fried egg rolls

You and me both. However, you can make your own potstickers! They are incredible. Sounds as though you are really into Asian cooking so you would really like "The Gluten Free Asian Kitchen". Excellent scratch recipes including your own nuoc cham, teriyaki sauce, potstickers...

"I think the chef has abandoned us. He has not been back since this first post back in October '11 so we may be talking to the air at this point."

LOL at the mysterious disappearing Chef.

I miss Taco Bell. :(

That cheap, junky goodness that reminded me of happy high school and college days. There's no substitute for that.

I miss the simplicity. I used to make many recipes using things like prepackaged cresent rolls etc. It's just harder now to make the same things. And of course going to parties or restraunts has many challenges.

I hear ya...it takes a lot more planning. Brown rice is now (by necessity) a huge staple of my diet, and it take 45 minutes (!) to cook it the old fashioned way.

Parties/restaurants are the hardest for me too. I never realized how much I depended on sharing food to bond with people, until now. It's so awkward. They all say, "This is good!" And you say, "It looks good!" Uh, yeah.

I miss that if you want to bake a pie or cheesecake with a specific cookie crust, you can't just buy the cookies or take them out of the pantry -- no, first you have to bake the darned cookies!!! :blink:

I gave that up when hubs was shopping and discovered Success Brown Rice 10 minute boil-in bags. This was not something I thought would be tasty at all---but I admit it, it works. ;) When you just do not have time, you may wish to use them. :)

Not a dish but an ingredient that cannot be replicated. Authentic Japanese panko crumbs. Sure, you can make your own crumbs from bread heels, etc. but not panko. There is nothing else like them. Kinnikinnick sells their own version but they are just fine crumbs that are a far cry from panko. I rarely do breading but they certainly would come in handy from time to time.

Please tell me if anyone sees authentic gluten free panko crumbs!

Oh, those are gluten-free? I just haven't ventured much into exploring which packaged foods are safe or not, I've been sticking with the basic ingredients for ease of shopping. Thanks for the tip.

Glad I looked at this thread this morning! First quick rice, now Panko crumbs. :)

Jeff Nathan Creations makes All Natural, Certified gluten-free, DF PANKO flakes.

I found them in a Whole Foods in Florida while vacationing. (we do not have one where I live and let me say these stores are a celiac's paradise! :lol: )

It's a product of Israel, Manufactured for distribution by HKS Marketing, Bayonne NJ.

Karen was right. Even if the Chef who started this thread never comes back, we can help each other find what we need. :)

Glad I could help. :)

Get yourself a copy of Cecelia's Marketplace gluten-free Shopping Guide.

She also has a gluten-free/DF/Soy free guide, too---which really helped hubs and me when I was first DXed and I could barely think, let alone create a shopping list. :blink: I could not tolerate dairy or soy either back then.

We no longer need it--- as we use minimal packaged foods and have become more adept at label reading. ( We passed it on to another celiac or I would have gladly mailed you ours. ;) )

There's a gluten-free/DF version, and a "plain" gluten-free version too!

You are so right! Thread starters may not be thread continuers but we can be! :P

I wonder if those are true panko crumbs. It would be interesting to find out - the picture does not really look like it but it is hard to tell. I will look into it. I am officially now on a gluten-free panko finding mission. The nearest Whole Foods is literally probably about a 12-hour drive but I hear that a city only about 8 hours away may be getting one! ;)

The chef makes regular Panko crumbs and he came out with these gluten-free/Kosher ones to rave reviews.

It may be as best as it gets, hon. ;)

You can probably order them off the internet, but if you want, you know I will find some and mail them to you. I managed to make it this far in the car--1500 miles-- (I do not have to tell you about painful travel) and I can surely get to the post office. :lol:

Thank you Irish Heart, I got some Success Rice at the store today. Very convenient as they're four to a box and they can get through a busy week of dinners for me. Thanks!

You bet, hon. ;) I personally LOATHE waiting for long-cooking brown rice to cook and every single time, it invariably bubbles over and I have to clean up the mess (except for my risotto, which never does, but then, I am watching it like a hawk. :lol: )

Glad it helps you save time! They have larger bags, too--marked Family Size.

Fun thread! The best bit for me is realising that reading through all these lists of awesome foods no longer makes me want to throw myself on the floor sobbing. Score! It'll be 2 years in June.

I miss the spontaneity too. Trying to find a restaurant for a birthday dinner has been a bit of a pain.

Actual foods:

Ovalteenies

They were my favourite as a little kid (a staple at the school tuckshop) and I rediscovered them a few years before I went gluten free. Sigh.

Lebanese bread

Turkish bread

Cherry danish

Huh. It was way harder to think of things than it used to be.

    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
