#881697 We Need To Start A Thread On Stupid Stuff Doctors Say!

Posted by on 29 July 2013 - 07:51 AM


I hate to tell you what I would have spelled out with those alphabet noodles.

But I think you can imagine. 




Probably the same thing I would!  LOL


This is how I feel lately, 


I had to fight for my Celiac DX and I still continue to fight for my health everyday. I hope in this fight, I may bring some type of knowledge and awareness of what Celiac disease is to someone for the good. <off soap box> ;)

#876382 Red Apple Lipstick

Posted by on 24 June 2013 - 04:13 PM

I love how they send it all wrapped, with a sample. Red is pretty, but my favorite right now is Petal Pusher and Mint to be lipgloss. French skirt is perfect to add over any lipstick for a shimmer. I have a lip pencil too! After ordering the lip pencil and Petal Pusher, someone asked me if I had a new man in my life because I was glowing :D I said "nope, just my new lipstick". I spent over a year after DX to replace the bright pretty colors, so happy I found RAL. The lip balm is good too.

#821002 I'm A Grandmother!

Hi everyone! I'm a grandmom! My son welcomed his son on August 30! My thoughts beyond loving every minute of it. I'm wondering if the Celiac gene hit him, you know?

My children do not show signs and their DR said to wait for signs or symptoms before they are tested.

How many of you are concerned about passing the gene on? This baby boy is such a blessing and while holding him, I wondered silently...did I pass this on to you?

Anyone relate??

#791692 Your Home Restaurant

Posted by on 28 April 2012 - 07:37 AM

Naturally gluten free at our house. I love to do fancy schmancy such as vanilla bean poached lobster, mushroom pate, seared duck with port cherry sauce, poached or seared scallops with vanilla cream, standing rib roast with Yorkshire pudding, roasted leg of lamb, celeriac puree, wild mushroom risotto, pots du creme, creme brulee, etc. When we have guests we go all out. No need for rolls or bread. I might make homemade crackers or gougeres and a lovely roasted red pepper and walnut dip or serve with compound butters. Or I might make homemade pasta (ravioli) stuffed with roasted butternut squash and goat cheese with crispy sage leaves and arugula.

Come to think of it, this is how we often eat anyway. When guests come we tend to make more courses. We also like to cook non-traditional stuff, things they would never expect or otherwise have. It is like eating at a high-end restaurant.

loves2travel, I think everyone would be beating down your door to eat dinner with you! :D

#759651 Help Me Please!

Good advice given already.

I would most certainly request the full panel of blood testing. Some doctors hesitate to order this panel or even think of it. My sisters' gastro only gave in and ordered it for her because I am celiac. He told her it was doubtfull she had it too. Crazy!

I was told after my colonoscopy that I had IBS. I went on the diet for it and my pain was worse, so I started eating salads. I felt better and told the doctor, only then did she order the panel for Celiac.

Best wishes to you! Please keep us updated!!

Hello Everyone!

I was recently diagnosed with Celiac @ age 31 and I have been gluten-free for 2 weeks now. I already feel better! I can't believe I've been sick my whole life and never knew it. I even used to think people with "celiac" were a little wacked out in the head. It turns out it was me that was wacked out in the head afterall. :D

I'm looking forward to the future now that I finally know what's "wrong" with me and I hope to learn a lot from you folks.

Welcome! You will learn alot from all the wonderful people here, I did as a newbie! I still do everyday and I love the reciepes and helpful advice.

I was DX celiac a month after my 44th birthday. Good luck on your quest for a girl!

#719824 Chicken And Cabbage

Posted by on 31 July 2011 - 11:14 AM

I've cooked cabbage this way before using both green and red cabbage. I've added onions and carrots to it before. This sounds like a recipe you can play around with.

#719513 Cooking For A Date Tomorrow!

Posted by on 29 July 2011 - 03:36 PM

Thanks everyone. I plan to make some of those suggestions. There was a fifth date ;) He is wanting me to meet his son and taking us to Outback. I've not been there since going gluten-free because I'm pretty sensitive. How should I order to be the safest? I'm sure he will order gluten-free also. I have a week to figure it out.
