  • About Me

    After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.  The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.  It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.

    Last night I made macaroni & cheesefor dinner using Riega Yellow Cheddar Cheese Sauce Mix. The saucecame out perfect, and was creamy, cheesy, and flavorful. Our wholefamily loved it, and what I really liked about it was being able touse my favorite gluten-free macaroni noodles, as I am very pickyabout my pasta. This is one of the best gluten-free cheese saucesthat I've tried, and it was quick and easy to prepare. This familyfavorite is always welcome for a quick hot lunch, or a dinnertimeside dish, and I will keep these on hand from now on.

    I was really excited when I received a cooler full of JD's Best Gluten Free Doughnut Holes. I haven't had a doughnut hole since before I went gluten-free.
    The preparation instructions were simple enough, and I decided use a toaster oven rather than a microwave. After preheated the oven it only took around 7 minutes for them to become warm and slightly crispy—just enough time for me to get the coffee ready.
    The first thing that struck me as I bit into one was how perfectly JD’s had captured the exact taste and texture of the doughnut holes that I remember—they tasted just like the real thing!

    Breadfruit is a starchy fruit that grows mainly in the Pacific Islands. It is highly nutritious, with high fiber, potassium and vitamin C content, as well as a low glycemic index. Signa Haiti's Gluten-Free 100% Breadfruit Flour captures these nutritive qualities and makes a tasty wheat flour alternative.
    I am a huge fan of Indian food, so when I saw that Signa Haiti has a recipe for garlic naan on their website, I got very excited. It wasn't quite as 'puffy' as what I'm used to, but it was still quite good, with a subtle 'potatoey' taste that went very well with saag paneer.
    There are a bunch of recipes on the Signa-Haiti recipe website that I'm going to try, including Haitian cereal, a sort of cream of wheat alternative. This flour shows promise and I think it would do very well in a blend with quinoa flour.

    If you love hot soup on a cold wintery day, these wonderful gluten-free vegetable soups are a great choice.
    The Cuban Black Bean Soup has pureed black beans with corn, red peppers, onions, carrots and spices. I thought it would be spicy, but it was mild. High in fiber, this soup would make a great starter for a home-made Mexican Feast.
    The Butternut Squash & Mushroom is thick and creamy with a beautiful golden color. Put this soup in a dark bowl and you have a chef-inspired dish that will win rave reviews.
    The Zesty Tomato soup is an interesting combination of tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and ginger. However, I did not realize there were jalapenos in this soup until I looked at the list of ingredients, so the word “zesty” does not imply hot or spicy.
    The Tuscan Minestrone is a low-calorie soup with tomatoes, spices, and white beans. The broth is light, making it the perfect starter for a bigger meal.
    The Sicilian Tomato Zucchini Bisque is a delightful blend of zucchini and tomatoes combined in a rich cream sauce.
    The Sweet Burgundy Onion Soup has a rich, distinctive taste due to the nice combination of burgundy wine and french brandy. Add some mozzarella cheese to the top and voila–you have an onion soup that tastes like home-made.
    All of these family-style soups are carefully crafted with the finest ingredients. Additionally, the sampler pack provides exceptional variety at a reasonable cost and the glass containers are a classy addition to your pantry (no more worries about contamination from metal cans that are often made of BPA). I highly recommend these delicious soups as part of a meal or as the meal.

    And he needs to be super strict in his gluten free diet! SUPER strict, not just low gluten. No cross contamination, NONE.  I am so sorry, there are no short cuts with the testing. It flat out sucks but there you have it.  Welcome to the forum!
    Hi TDZ, My understanding is the same, a full gluten challenge is needed for the DH diagnosis.  The method the use for DH is to take a skin biopsy from next to a lesion, not on it.  They check the biopsy for IgA antibodies. I don't know of any way to shortcut the process and avoid eating gluten to get tested.  There may be a test some  day that doesn't require it, but for now I don't think there are any out there. One thing he might not have tried is avoiding iodine.  Some of the m
    Hello, new here and new to the whole thing! My husband has been battling this rash and assorted digestive issues for years. He was diagnosed with contact dermatitis by the dermatologist, had some steroid injections and various creams over the last couple of years, and then in November he went to the ER and they said eczema and gave him steroid pills. This was after a huge bloom that pretty much hit him from head to toe, where it had been mostly arms and legs before. He finally concluded he
