In Topic: Who Survived Thanksgiving?

29 November 2010 - 02:52 AM

This was my first year staying home and cooking. It was a success!

Roasted turkey breast
mashed potatoes
roasted sweet potatoes
green beans
cranberry sauce
corn bread
dinner rolls
pumpkin pie
chocolate cream pie

There was gravy, but it was not gluten free. I dont eat it anyway. Everything else was gluten free and for once I didn't have to stress about what I was eating for a holiday meal!

In Topic: How Hard Is It?

29 November 2010 - 02:42 AM

I am the celiac in a house of 5. I do all the cooking and 99% of it is gluten free. It can be done, and easily. I too just did an entire gluten free Thanksgiving. The only thing that wasn't gluten-free was the gravy. I dont eat it anyway, so I bought premade for the gravy eaters :P I love to cook, so in the beginning (its been a few years) I just researched and researched. There is so much information and recipes out there. I use Pamela's baking mix. I just tried Better Batter for rolls I made for Thanksgiving. They were awesome! You will get the hang of it and it will become easy for you. I remember the first few months after my diagnosis. It sucked and I was so frustrated. I promise it gets easier!

In Topic: Stomach/intestinal Pain....where Is Yours ?

25 November 2010 - 07:01 PM

Just had a colonoscopy to figure some pain issues. Seems all is ok...been great for two weeks but now getting weird pains again. I'm thinking there is some cross contamination happening. I live in a household of 5...mom & the only celiac. So...trying to figure out if these pains are gluten related.

I believe there is a difference between straight out glutening pain and cross contamination pain. Straight glutening is way more involved, painful & longer lasting. Cross contamination is more variable. So the reason I had the scope was some pain in the upper right side and the lower right side. Pretty consistent in the lower right side but the upper right side was new. I had a gallbladder ultrasound and it looked fine...

So..I'm thinking it's celiac pain...anyone else get pain there ?!?!?

My pain has always been in the upper ab area. Sometimes over to the right side. I never had low intestional pain. I haven't been glutened in awhile, a good year I think....knock on wood!!!! I cant say whether there is a differece between straight glutening or cross contamination. I would think it would be the same. You are still getting glutened with cross contamination. Hope you feel better soon!

In Topic: Making Baked Pasta Tonight

Thanks for sharing those tips. I've been thinking about making the same, but I was afraid it would come out bad and I hate wasting food.

Yes, I have made baked pasta dishes, (baked ziti) without precooking the noodles. It came out great. I feel it came out better because cooking the gluten-free noodles makes them very mushy. Just make sure you use enough sauce because the noodles will absorb the sauce as they are cooking.
