I know it may seem very overwhelming right now but I promise it will get better
Here are some links that I hope are helpful to you and your daughter.
50 Gluten Free recipes
Safe and forbidden Food & ingredient list

I am pretty new to this also but am getting the hang of cooking for my family without gluten. Actually, I think the breakfast-lunch meal is harder to figure out, but dinners have been pretty good (actually, my husband says we've never eaten better!) and both my daughters, who are big pasta eaters, aren't missing it too much. You can get a couple of decent regular cookbooks that have good recipes that don't feature a lot of additives, breadcrumbs, flour, or pasta . Here are 4 meals I made last week, and no one even noticed they were "gluten-free," including the other family we had over.
Pot roast with gravy (I just used cornstarch instead of flour to thicken and some red wine), mashed potatoes, and salad.
Chicken cutlets with cornflake crumb coating (use organic cornflakes from a health food store, not a commercial brand like Kellogg's, which uses gluten ingredients, and always check the label -- I just put them in a large baggie and ground them up with a rolling pin, then dipped the cutlets in egg and then crumbs), sweet potatoes, spinach salad with tomatoes and mushrooms.
Grilled pork chops with vinegar glaze, twice-baked potatoes, green beans with lemon juice.
Roast chicken with garlic and rosemary, rice cooked in gluten-free chicken broth, stir-fried zucchini and tomatoes.
If your daughter is young, some of this food may not appeal to her, but by experimenting you'll find lots of things she'll like, and you can cook things more plainly as well.
Also, there are two really good gluten-free breads that you can order through www.kinnikinnick.com -- I was very surprised and pleased to find that they are a decent substitute (I just don't eat them that often because they're expensive). They have an excellent pancake and waffle mix as well.
Two other good sites for products are www.gluten free.com and www.glutenfreemall.com.
You can get some gluten-free cookbooks by Bette Hagman and I think even Amazon and Barnes & Noble carry them now. Keep reading the messages posted on this site, they've been very helpful to me. The beginning is hard, but you'll figure it out and your daughter will recover, which is the most important thing.

There are several gluten free foods out there.. cereals and such most health food stores carry them, and alot of regular supermarket stores as well. Our local Acme just started carrying Amy's gluten free pizza!!
So consult with the manager of you local grocery store on that.
Here is a link to a list of gluten free foods found in regular markets.. but as always consult with that safe/forbidden ingrediant list..
A note Kellogs Corn Pops are no longer gluten free they started adding wheat in them in January.(they might be on that list)
Hope this helps!

A couple questions I still have are:
1. Do you buy the $5 bread or do you bake bread yourselves?
2. How diligent do I have to be about contamination with wheat?
