Before bed, I went in to wash my face and brush my pearlies and I noticed a thin layer of white powder on my eyelashes.

That stuff can travel.

Note to self: no more baking in the back seat.

For all of you who listened to my story, thanks---

and I received this email from my friend Elaine --regarding the LEMON bars and the pumpkin paleo bread I made with a dairy-free glaze for her gluten-free and DF sister:

"We loved the food. The lemon bars were fabulous! We need the recipes."

IH is going to bed feeling exonerated for the lemon bars debacle.

It's from Annalise Roberts' book Gluten Free Baking Classics.

Here is the website link to other recipes of hers. They use the same Brown Rice flour mix for all baked goods.

LEMON SQUARES

Yields 16 pieces (no, it doesn't. :rolleyes: It makes 9. But Sylvia used a 7 X 11 pan and she got more out of it that way)

Crust

1 cup brown rice flour mix* (below)

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

5 tablespoons butter

1 /4 cup granulated sugar

Baking spray

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom of 8–inch square baking pan.

Put flour, xanthan gum, butter, and sugar in bowl of electric mixer. Mix on low speed until crumbly. Press into bottom of baking pan.

Bake in center of oven for 15 minutes.

Lemon Filling

3 large eggs

3 /4 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons brown rice flour mix*

1 /2 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons grated lemon rind

1 /2 teaspoon pure lemon extract

Beat eggs in large bowl of electric mixer at high speed until foamy.

Add sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, lemon juice, lemon rind, and lemon extract.

Beat until well blended. Pour onto partially baked crust.

Bake in center of oven for 20 minutes or until set. Cool on wire rack. Cut into 16 squares or triangles; remove from baking pan onto serving plate. Sift powdered sugar over the tops (in the back seat of your car)

Brown Rice Flour Mix

2 cups brown rice flour

(extra finely ground)

2/3 cup potato starch (NOT potato flour)

1/3 cup tapioca flour

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
