In Topic: Crab Cakes

Thank you all for your advice on crab cakes. I used the recipe on the Old Bay seasoning can, except I used gluten-free bread crumbs instead of breaking white gluten-free bread into small pieces and moistening with milk. I am going to try that the next time, and I am also going to try the recipe with the bacon rinds - never heard of that one before, but am excited about trying it. Thanks again.

Why are some (most) postings signified as "Pinned"? I have been a member for a year or so, although I have written just a few messages. Some of the messages I did send I never saw posted. Thanks.

In Topic: Newbie Looking For Bread Recipe

I was diaagnosed as a celiac about a year and a half ago. I have tried many bread recipes - have had many failures (which I converted into bread crumbs) and some I didn't like. But now I have a fairly good grasp of "how to". May I suggest that you buy Bette Hagman's book "The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread". My favorites in this book are the Buttermilk Casserole Bread and the New French Bread. Instead of the dry milk powder she lists in the recipes, I prefer using the almond meal. Also, another favorite which I found on the computer if Mirielle's almond bread. If you might like to try that, let me know.

In Topic: At What Age?

02 March 2004 - 10:02 AM

I was 81 when I was diagnosed with celiac disease!! I had been having "weird" symptoms for several (or more) years. Turns out I had the "silent" type. It wasn't until I became very anemic and had lost about 20 pounds that I was diagnosed. After my doctor had me take several diagnostic tests and blood tests, including an endoscopy, it was determined that the form of celiac disease I have is gluten ataxia. The endoscopy was the real determining factor. And so my problems are mainly neurological. Also, from what I read, it would take 6 months to a year to be free of symptoms on the gluten-free diet -- then later I read it could take 2 to 3 years. Well, after 14 months on the diet, I am happy to report that I am much improved, but not as much as I would like. Perhaps because of my age, it will take longer. But I definitely would not go off my diet for anything. The most annoying thing is that I can't eat out as much as I would like. On the other hand, I have learned how to bake a decent loaf of bread and can now whip up a pretty good apple pie and other goodies. So take heart -- there is a good life to be had with celiac disease.

In Topic: Root Beer And Sour Cream Ok Or Not?

The celiac.com's list of gluten-free items includes A&W Rootbeer. I drink it frequently. Just another option for you.
