Topics I've Started

Happy Hannukah!

21 December 2008 - 05:54 PM

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to share my success with Jewish cooking :) I adapted these two recipes from Jennie Grossinger's The Art of Jewish Cooking and they came out great! For the noodles for the kugel, I used Glutano brand tagliatelle pasta, which is similar to egg noodles. It's tough to find in the US but can be bought here: http://www.celiac.co...?products_id=63. The Latkes only called for Matzo meal and I just used rice chex instead. Enjoy!

Kugel

1 Bag Glutano Tagliatelle Pasta, Cooked
4 T Brown Sugar
4 T Melted Butter
1 t Lemon Juice
1/8 t Nutmeg
4 Eggs
3/4 Cup Golden Raisins
1/2 Cup Sliced almonds

Beat eggs and sugar until fluffy. Add all other ingredients and mix in a casserole. Bake with lid on for 45 minutes at 375 degrees. Uncover and bake 5 more minutes or until slightly browned/crispy on top.

Latkes

3 cups shredded, peeled potato
2 eggs, beaten
4 T shredded onion
2 T crushed rice chex
Salt and Pepper to taste
Oil/Butter for frying

Mix all ingredients together. Drop by large spoonfuls in pan of hot oil (oil should be about 1/4 inch deep). Cook until browned and crispy, turning to get both sides. Serve wiht sour cream or applesauce.

Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome

Hey all,

I stumbled across this on discovery health's mystery diagnosis ;) But is sounded like something a lot of us here should be interested in. Here is link that explains it well:
http://yourtotalheal...html?pageNum=5#

I think this is something I might want to ask the doctor about, but I wanted to know anyone's opinions, especially those who are familiar with it. From what I've read candidiasis is one of the main symptoms, and I don't know if I had it as a child but I suspect I have it in my nailbeds now. I also don't menstruate (well, ovulate...I have very light infrequent menstruation) on my own and have been on birth control. I also have low blood pressure, CFS, numbness/poor circulation in extremities, and a history of low calcium (I broke 7 bones as a child). And, of course, all of the intestinal/celiac stuff.

But I feel a bit like I may be overreacting. I also have had my thyroid tested numerous times and it was normal...does anyone know if they test for PTH as well? Heh, I would hate coming into the doctor with an unfounded TV/internet self-diagnosis :) any thoughts?

Stuffing!

27 November 2008 - 12:07 PM

So I have been diagnosed for a little over a year, and have sadly lived my life in absence of the salty buttery crumbly goodness that is stuffing. But this year...stuffing has returned ot my thanksgiving table!!!!!!!!! I found a ridiculously easy recipe from glutenfreeda that uses van's waffles as the bread, and I tweaked it a little. make sure you get the gluten-free van's waffles, as they do make several types.

Here it is:
2 boxes Van's gluten-free waffles, toasted until crispy and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1.5-2 cups gluten-free Chicken Stock (use judgement as to when moist enough)
2.5 tsp herbes de provence (I like a lot of herbs, so I used liberally...cut back if you wish)
1.5 tsp sage
salt and pepper to taste
4 ribs celery, chopped
1 med. onion, chopped
1 apple, chopped
1 stick butter

Toast waffles, cut and set aside in large bowl. In a large saucepan, melt butter and cook veggies, herbs, and apple for about 10 mins or until soft. Mix in bowl with bread and stock. Spread in baking pan and back at 350 for 20 mins. Start to finish, this recipe barely takes 40 mins. It's sooo easy and yummy. It's taunting me on the counter right now...can't wait to get it on the thanksgiving table! :D

Celiac On House, Md Again!

11 November 2008 - 05:41 PM

Ok well the episode is still in progress as I type this, but here is my reactio so far:
-Patient portrayed as mentally ill..second time they've had a celiac with that
-Referred to celiac as a wheat allergy
-Referred to being able to see reaction in progress during endoscopy (I think...it was confusing)

That said, celiac as in the media! By name! Coupled with the term "flattened villi!"

I'll let you know more after the show

Need Advice- Should I Mention Something To Teachers?

18 October 2008 - 07:54 AM

Hi All,

I'm a high school senior, and I've been gluten-free for a year. I've never said anything to my teachers unless it came up, like if we had a field trip or food in class, etc. Those who I have talked to have been very helpful and understanding, but I figured I'm old enough to handle it as it comes up.

(slight gross alert)
Since going gluten-free, my bowels are finally regular. I almost always go first thing in the morning, although when I have to go I REALLy have to go. But when I get glutened, even after the obvious symptoms pass, it takes a while to get back to normal.

I had a minor mishap last weekend where I ate some miso at a japanese restaurant while traveling, assuming it would be fine since I always have it at our local restaurant and they checked for me and it's fine. I only had one spoonful before the waitress ambushed me and took it away, and I didn't get too sick. After a night of D, I was constipated for a while, and now my bowels are all messed up.

Yesterday, I couldn't go in the morning, which worried me a little. But then during calculus, which was the last class of the day, we were taking a quiz, and all of a sudden I REALLY had to go. I knew my teacher wouldn't let me go w/o a lengthy explanation, which I wasn't about to deal with. So I rushed through the rest of the quiz (never a good idea in calculus!) and then went.

This is the first time anything like this has happened. It was never a problem when I was younger and undiagnosed because I had severe C and only had to go a couple of times a week. I have had a reaction at school before, but only stomachaches, never D or anything. But should I mention something to me teachers, in case it happens again? Needless to say, it's really embarassing! But I'm afraid it might happen again sometime when I can't wait and can't go, ie during midterms or AP tests or something. Any thoughts?
