In Topic: Which Is The Better Brownie?

16 February 2010 - 05:34 PM

well I made the Gluten Free Pantry ones and added mint and dark choc chips.............OMG they were soooooo good! I had a hard time keeping my boyfriend away from them (and he's a gluten eater!)

gluten-free Pantry gets my vote :D

In Topic: Positive Blood Test, Negative Endoscopy?

05 September 2009 - 10:44 AM

my tests were the same way - positive blood but the endoscopy was negative so my GI doc wouldn't diagnose me. but i had such a strong positive reaction to the diet, plus i tested positive for one of the genes, i decided i don't need a doctor to tell me "you have Celiac".

it's my understanding that a positive blood result is more likely to be accurate. the biopsy only tests a few small samples of your 20-something feet of intestine so there's a good chance they'll miss the damage if it isn't widespread. i think that's what happened with me - i was just lucky to have caught it before too much damage could be done.

the good news for you is the endoscopy is over with and you can start a gluten free diet now, if that's what you choose to do. no more glutening yourself just for the sake of a test.

In Topic: Wal-mart Dedicated gluten-free Section

26 August 2009 - 05:23 PM

i've been taking advantage of the gluten-free section at my Walmart for at least 3 or 4 months now (upstate NY). i was shocked to come across it while shopping one day, and like others have said, it was right before they started significant renovations to the store.

they have Pamela's and Bob's Red Mill mixes, Tinkyada pasta, Mi-Del & Glutino products and probably a few other things as well. i don't usually buy much more than some pasta and flours/mixes but it's great to have the option. ironically though i have yet to see the Betty Crocker mixes but i've requested them a few times (via email, with no reply whosoever). i have to go to Hannaford if i want a BC mix.

i found 3 of the 4 (no choc cake :() last week for $3.39. i think the price is totally reasonable, particularly if they are found in regular stores and are quick and easy to make.

In Topic: Betty Crocker gluten-free Mixes

07 July 2009 - 02:09 PM

i've been talking about these darn mixes for a month, promising my co-workers cookies as soon as i could get my hands on them. yesterday morning my boss mentioned she saw some "regular brand" cookie mix with "gluten-free" on the box at the store over the weekend. i literally squealed with excitement and was tempted to run out to the store during lunch :P

i found the cookies, brownies and yellow cake mix at Hannaford - and for only $3.39. i'm not a big cake eater so i got the cookies and brownies and whipped up the cookies as soon as i got home. the dough was really crumbly and i found it easier to grab a handful and roll it into a ball rather than trying to scoop out teaspoons like the directions suggest. i cooked them for 10 minutes and let them cool for 2 before moving them to a cooling rack - they came out perfect! everyone at work loved them...and no one knew they were gluten-free.
