In Topic: Rice Krispie Treat Report

27 June 2011 - 10:34 AM

I made a batch of Rice Krispie treats using the new gluten free RK cereal. I used Kraft Jet-Puffed marshmallows. The results are good. The gluten-free RK are a little less crispy and a little less sweet, made with brown rice & sugar, instead of white rice, malt, and sugar.

My older son begrudgingly tried some and declared them to be "fine" (a major endorsement on his part), my wife liked them also. As this was one of my favorite childhood treats I opted for 1/3 of the pan for breakfast on Father's Day. B)

My kids found out that Fruity Pebbles and Coco Pebbles are gluten-free too!!! I made Fruity pebbles treats and they were very very very delicious! Very sugary taste if that's what you're craving. My friend found coco pebble treats already made in packages at Basha's in AZ! Everyone ate them before I could try it though:(

In Topic: Macyoes Mexican Restraunt gluten-free Menu

27 June 2011 - 10:03 AM

I noticed this posting was from 3 years ago so I'd like to update a little and see what others have found. I ate at Macayo's in Goodyear a few times in 2010 & 2011 and each time felt ill. The last time I ate there the waitress said, "all the corn tortillas are dusted with wheat". Then, when I went to the one on 75th & thomas I spoke to the manager and he said NOTHING is gluten free but the company has been working on it for a while and it's going to require a lot of time and training for the cooking staff. Eventually one day it will be gluten free if this company doesn't give up. As for now...NOT GLUTEN FREE. Does anyone else have any experience with Macayo's?

In Topic: Does The Reaction Get Worse Over Time

20 November 2010 - 01:46 PM

This is an older Topic but I have not learned how to use this forum just yet. I've noticed that I have reactions from Dr. Pepper when it's from the fountain machine at Circle K and from Barro's Pizza (I didn't there but my friends picked me up a Dr. Pepper at lunch). My reactions consist of my tummy painfully expanding and the feeling of not being able to take a deep breath. The feeling of not being able to breath right while having a conversation just like when I've had gluten.

They have the one size for 79cents but the lids are so hard to get out that you end up grabbing 5 at a time just to pull one lid out. I glance over at the hot dog machine and only imagine who got a hot dog first or who was eating chips etc. then touched all the lids in the front including the one I'm about to pick. I try to pull out 3, discard, then pull out 3 more and pick the center one. I don't think it works though because they all look like they've been smudged on the side from fingers. YUCK!

I just don't want it to be the Dr. Pepper itself because I'm addicted big time! Anyone have this problem?

In Topic: How Paranoid Should I Be About School?

The place-mat is such a good idea! My daughter is in 4th grade, was just diagnosed with Celiac's and I'm freaking out. How will I'll give her good tasting food in a "cold lunch" and have her not be hungry?

My sister saves a small amount of food for me before the family starts serving themselves or before she adds the gluten type sauces to it. No one else in the family does that for me but my mom n sisters. Cross contamination is inevitable at a potluck party. Even the salsa bowl becomes unsafe when kids dip chips that are not safe for me to eat. If going to someones house I try to eat first. In real life situations I've had to eat carrots and chips for dinner because I didn't plan ahead. Hate when that happens but it's reality.
