#793845 Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

Posted by jess_gf on 07 May 2012 - 12:59 PM

Wow, way to go out on a limb, boys.

They've admitted that it's not safe for Celiacs, and personally I wouldn't suggest that people with wheat allergies or gluten intolerance try it either. Honestly, I feel like they are exploiting the gluten-free diet fad that's getting a lot of publicity right now (Miley, Kim) and possibly trying to tap into the primal/paleo market as well. I guess some people will be happy with the product, but I know I certainly won't be trying it.

#793649 May Is Celiac Awareness Month

Posted by jess_gf on 06 May 2012 - 11:20 AM

I'm not sure if you all know about this (I didn't until Twitter exploded about it a couple weeks ago!) but May is Celiac Awareness Month. We get our own month :D

The NFCA has some more info about it here: http://www.celiaccen...awarenessmonth/

#789250 Does Anyone Else Just Not Join In?

Posted by jess_gf on 20 April 2012 - 03:24 AM

I actually prefer potlucks! That way I know I can bring something that is completely safe. I usually make something that's mostly a meal in itself and serve myself first, or make up a plate beforehand. It's pretty rare that I trust anyone else to make gluten-free food. I just find it easier to know I can take care of myself ahead of time and not worry about the food once I get there.

The hardest situations for me are big family events that are at a restaurant, typically a buffet. At those I never really feel safe, and if I order off the menu I feel too "special".

This thread is funny :) It's a girl with reddish-blonde hair in pigtails on a windy day, showing off a lollipop.

#677686 What Do You Do?

Posted by jess_gf on 23 February 2011 - 09:00 AM

Right now I work part-time doing audio edits and other related stuff for a webconferencing company that caters to big Pharma :P I used to work there full time, but there was another round of layoffs and they gutted my department. Shock of shocks they've been having trouble meeting client deadlines since then.. but I digress!

I like that I can work part-time from home now. Since being diagnosed I spend a lot of time cooking and planning and researching and it's definitely easier at meal time being at home with a kitchen. But I do feel a bit lost, like I'm not contributing enough to society (or making enough $$). I have been looking around for another job but haven't had much luck yet. It would be really cool to work for Celiac awareness somehow, but I haven't seen anything out there like that.

For lunch today I had two yellow squash sauteed with bacon. That was tasty!

I also cooked a whole chicken for the first time a few days ago using this super easy recipe and it was outstanding: http://www.epicuriou...-Chicken-231348

Last night I made a berry crisp using two bags of frozen mixed berries from trader joe's, tossing them in some gluten-free flour mix, then mixing together 1c of gluten-free flour mix with 1/2c sugar & 1/2c butter, some walnuts & some spices and then using that on top of the berries. Yum.

Tonight I am going to try creating a gluten free teriyaki sauce. All of the premade sauces have gluten in them and I have tried using gluten-free soy suace + honey + sesame oil. That combo is pretty good but it's still not quite teriyaki. I did some research and this time I'm going to try splashing in some Mirin and fish sauce!

Tonight I cooked my first steak :P I used this marinade: http://allrecipes.co...aks/Detail.aspx Turned out pretty good! I also roasted some small potatoes and carrots with o.oil and herbs in the oven @425 until they looked done. The carrots were so sweet!

Tonight I made a basic meatsauce to go on top of TJ's rice pasta. Tasty & easy! Basically I put a whole onion in the food processor and sauteed it with 1lb of TJ's ground beef until it browned, added a can of tomato sauce and a small can of tomato paste, a cup of water, tsp sugar, tsp salt, and various dried herbs. I had one serving and my boyfriend inhaled the rest :o

Today I also turned the rest of my crockpot chicken into chicken noodle soup buy adding in some more water, chicken stock, straining out the glop, shredding up the bits of chicken and cutting up the chunks of potato and carrots. Also added some more herbs and a squeeze of honey. Very comforting!

Irish Davy Boy's oven risotto, butternut squash, and cornbread. Can't wait!


That sounds delish! I've never heard of Irish Davy Boy's though. I'll have to keep my eyes open for it!


My crockpot chicken turned out pretty well - but turned into more of a soup there was so much liquid! And I barely added any in the beginning, maybe 1/4thcup of oj and 1 orange squeezed. The meat was very tender though. Maybe I'll just add some noodles and call it chicken noodle soup :P

Hmm I'll have to try those soup suggestions. Thanks guys :)

Tonight I am using my crockpot again, I love that thing! I'm cooking a whole chicken in there (though I bought it already in pieces). I'm following this recipe http://allrecipes.co...ken/Detail.aspx but I added in some potatos and carrots at the bottom.. just realized now I forgot onions, oops.. then I added butter to the top, freshly squeezed juice of an orange and I also tossed in what was left of the orange itself, a drizzle of honey, extra paprika. I have no idea if it will taste good or not.

I have a question. I have some leftover pot roast, a box of opened beef stock I don't think I'll use within a week, and some leftover tinkyada noodles. Can I made a soup out of this stuff? Or should I freeze it?

Well the Tinkyada pasta was a hit! It tasted really good and my bf said it tasted just like regular pasta. Yay! Gluten-Free chicken meatballs from TJ's was good also. I improv'd a dessert as well - chopped up two green apples, put them in 2 ramekins, topped with cinnamon, b.sugar, and a pad of butter. Put them in my toaster oven at 350 while the pasta was cooking and left them going while we ate, then took them out when we wanted them. Nice lazy dessert :P
