    This recipe comes to us from Valerie Wells. I dont define exact amounts of the ingredient because it will vary with the size of your crock pot how much you want to prepare. I made this in two crock pots last evening for a crowd. Everyone liked it and went for seconds. It makes a nice presentation with the colorful spices on the chicken. The gravy that forms is nice and light. If youre one who cant tolerate tapioca, then you will need to mix corn starch or another thickener with the broth before pouring it over the potatoes.
    Ingredients:
    Carrots
    Potatoes
    2 tablespoons tapioca pearls (or other thickener of you choice)
    ½ to 1 cup chicken broth
    Chicken pieces w/ skins on (skinless pieces would dry out with this cooking
    method)
    Turmeric
    Paprika
    Salt and pepper
    Directions:
    Peel a few carrots and cut into 1 inch chunks. Place in the bottom of crock pot. Peel potatoes, cut in quarters and place on top of carrots and salt and pepper lightly. Sprinkle on tapioca pearls. Pour on chicken broth. Liberally sprinkle chicken with spices and salt. Place on top of potatoes. Cook on low for 8 to 9 hours. To serve, remove chicken and place on serving platter. Put potatoes and carrots in separate dish.

    Celiac.com 11/09/2009 - Every year around the holidays, celiac.com likes to remind folks that, with a little of planning and a few tips, anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance can enjoy a safe, delicious gluten-free Thanksgiving and holiday season without fear of accidentally eating gluten.
    If you're planning to make your own gluten-free turkey dinner, here are some helpful tips to help it go smoothly:
    Start your gluten-free holiday dinner with a gluten-free turkey. Not all brands of turkey are gluten-free. Some contain gluten in their additives—so, as with everything else, check the ingredients and use our Gluten-Free Ingredient Lists or our Gluten-Free Shopping Guides to help you shop. Demand gluten-free stuffing! Accept no substitute. Don’t risk gluten-based stuffing in your turkey. Instead, try celiac.com's favorite gluten-free stuffing recipe. Make simple, delicious gluten-free gravy using either a gluten-free gravy mix, or a gluten-free gravy recipe. Remember, some bouillon cubes contain gluten, so be sure to use gluten-free bouillon cubes. Tip: Thicken your homemade gravy with either corn starch or arrowroot flour. Prepare easy, tasty gluten-free side dishes by browsing celiac.com's extensive listing of gluten-free recipes, where you will find side dishes to impress even the snootiest gourmet. Order gluten-free baking ingredients and other hard-to-find items like prepared gluten-free pies ahead of time for convenience—this will allow you to spend more time with friends and family rather than spending all of your time in the kitchen! Many excellent prepared gluten-free products can now be ordered and delivered directly to your door from places like the Gluten-Free Mall. Folks planning to eat holiday meals out, or at a friend or relative's house, might find this information helpful:

Chef Daniel Moran's article: Traveling and Eating Gluten-Free Meals at Small or Moving Restaurants. Celiac.com's Best Ever Gluten-free Stuffing Recipe
    Ingredients:
    5-6 cups gluten-free bread (about 2 loaves), cut into one-inch cubes, toasted and cooled
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    3 cups celery, chopped
    1 large yellow onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon fresh sage, finely chopped
    1-2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
    1-2 cups gluten-free chicken broth
    1 egg yolk
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    Directions:
    Sautee the onion and celery in olive oil on medium-low heat until translucent.
    Stir in the rosemary, sage, and thyme, and cook another one or two minutes, until the aroma of the herbs fills the air.
    Bring the chicken stock to boil on high heat. Place the egg yolk in a medium-sized bowl and carefully spoon two or three ounces of the chicken stock into the egg yolk, slowly, while whisking the mixture.
    Add the rest of the chicken stock to the egg mixture. (blending a small amount of stock into the egg first will prevent scrambled eggs.)
    Add the cooled celery, onion, and herbs mixture into the stock and egg mixture. Toss the bread cubes into this mixture and coat thoroughly.
    Add the salt and pepper and toss bread a bit more.
    Place all of this into a greased casserole dish (big enough to hold three quarts) and cover it with aluminum foil.
    Place in 400°F oven for 40-50 min, covering as needed with aluminum foil, until done. Insert a toothpick into the stuffing. If it comes out clean, the stuffing is done. If not, bake until the toothpick comes out clean.
    If you want to cook the stuffing inside the turkey add only 1 cup of Chicken broth.
    Serves six to eight people, depending on their appetite for stuffing.

    Celiac.com 01/16/2014 - Okay, so I'm a huge fan of shepherd's pie, going so far to freeze huge batches to eat for weeks after I make it.
    I'm always keen to try new takes on shepherd's pie to satisfy my culinary curiosity. This version combines seasonal root vegetables like carrots, rutabaga, and parsnip with lamb, peas onions and garlic in a rich tomato sauce to serve up a big helping of shepherd's pie love.
    Ingredients:
    3 cups prepared mashed potatoes 1 pound ground lamb 1 stalk celery, chopped 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sautéed, optional 1 medium onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, chopped 1 leek, white only, chopped 3 carrots, peeled and chopped 1 parsnip, peeled and diced 1 small rutabaga, chopped ¼ cup frozen green peas 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce ½ cup milk, or cream, as needed 1 teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon garlic powder ¼ teaspoon onion powder ½ teaspoon ground black pepper ⅓ teaspoon dried thyme 2 tablespoons grated Roman cheese 1-2 teaspoons butter for cooking Directions:
    In a medium pan, over medium-high heat, sweat the mushrooms until they give up their water. Remove from heat, drain well, and set aside.
    Heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    In a medium pan, sauté leeks and onion in a bit of butter until translucent.
    Place the celery, carrots, parsnip, rutabaga, and peas into a large saucepan and fill with 1 inch of water.
    Bring to a boil, cover, and steam for 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
    Meanwhile, break the ground lamb into a large skillet, and heat to medium.
    Cook and stir until lamb is browned. Drain off excess grease.
    To the lamb, add mushrooms, onion and garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder and onion powder to the tomato sauce. Stir in the steamed vegetables and mix well.
    Transfer everything to a greased 7x11 inch or 9x11 inch casserole dish (depending on how thick you like the potatoes).
    Mix enough milk or cream into the mashed potatoes to make them spreadable.
    Spread them over the top of the meat and vegetable mixture and garnish freely with Romano cheese.
    Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is browned and the inside is heated through.

    Celiac.com 07/16/2018 - Did weak public oversight leave Arizonans ripe for Theranos’ faulty blood tests scam? Scandal-plagued blood-testing company Theranos deceived Arizona officials and patients by selling unproven, unreliable products that produced faulty medical results, according to a new book by Wall Street Journal reporter, whose in-depth, comprehensive investigation of the company uncovered deceit, abuse, and potential fraud.
    Moreover, Arizona government officials facilitated the deception by providing weak regulatory oversight that essentially left patients as guinea pigs, said the book’s author, investigative reporter John Carreyrou. 
    In the newly released "Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup," Carreyrou documents how Theranos and its upstart founder, Elizabeth Holmes, used overblown marketing claims and questionable sales tactics to push faulty products that resulted in consistently faulty blood tests results. Flawed results included tests for celiac disease and numerous other serious, and potentially life-threatening, conditions.
    According to Carreyrou, Theranos’ lies and deceit made Arizonans into guinea pigs in what amounted to a "big, unauthorized medical experiment.” Even though founder Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos duped numerous people, including seemingly savvy investors, Carreyrou points out that there were public facts available to elected officials back then, like a complete lack of clinical data on the company's testing and no approvals from the Food and Drug Administration for any of its tests.
    SEC recently charged the now disgraced Holmes with what it called a 'years-long fraud.’ The company’s value has plummeted, and it is now nearly worthless, and facing dozens, and possibly hundreds of lawsuits from angry investors. Meantime, Theranos will pay Arizona consumers $4.65 million under a consumer-fraud settlement Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich negotiated with the embattled blood-testing company.
    Both investors and Arizona officials, “could have picked up on those things or asked more questions or kicked the tires more," Carreyrou said. Unlike other states, such as New York, Arizona lacks robust laboratory oversight that would likely have prevented Theranos from operating in those places, he added.
    Stay tuned for more new on how the Theranos fraud story plays out.

    Celiac.com 07/13/2018 - I went to a friend’s home for dinner.  A few days before, she called and asked me what I could eat.  I asked her what she was planning to make, and she said she was grilling meats with side dishes.  I said, “Great.  Please just grill a piece of chicken for me with salt and pepper, and I’ll be happy to bring a side.” She said, “No need to bring a side.  I’ve got this.” When I arrived, she greeted me and said, “I spent all day cooking tonight’s dinner so you can eat it. Hey would you just check this salad dressing to see if it is OK for you?” I looked at the ingredients and it contained gluten and dairy, both of which I cannot eat.  Then I glanced around the kitchen and saw evidence of wheat cross-contamination, including buns being toasted on the grill, and gluten-containing barbeque sauce spilling on the grill where my “clean” chicken was cooking. She had other guests to tend to, and I couldn’t offer instruction or read the ingredients of everything she used in the meal. 
    At social gatherings, I’ve been challenged too by those who ask if I am really “allergic,” or just eating gluten free as a “fad.” I’ve been told many times by hosts and hostesses that, “a little won’t hurt you,” or “everything in moderation,” or “if it is made with loving hands, it is good for you to eat.”  Of course, all of this is bunk for those with food allergies or celiac disease.  A little bit may kill us, and whether made with loving hands or not, it will certainly make us sick. 
    Those of us with food allergies and/or celiac disease walk a tightrope with friends and relatives. The old rules of etiquette just don’t work anymore.  We don’t want to insult anybody, we don’t want to be isolated, and we also don’t want to risk our health by eating foods that may contain ingredients we cannot tolerate.  So what do we do? 
    Etiquette books advise us to eat what is put in front of us when we are guests in someone’s home. They caution us at all costs not to insult our hostess. Rather, we are instructed to compliment the hostess on her good cooking, flavor combinations, and food choices.  But when foods are prepared in a cross-contaminated environment with ingredients we are allergic to, we cannot follow the old social constructs that do not serve us.  We need to work together to rewrite the rules, so that we can be included in social gatherings without fear of cross-contamination, and without offending anyone.
    Let’s figure out how to surmount these social situations together.  
    Each edition of this column will present a scenario, and together, we’ll determine appropriate, polite, and most importantly, safe ways to navigate this tricky gluten-free/food allergies lifestyle in a graceful way.  If someone disagrees with our new behavior patterns, we can refer them to this column and say, “Here are the new rules for those of us with food allergies or celiac disease.”  When we are guests in someone’s home, we can give them links to this column so they understand the plight we are faced with, bite after bite. Perhaps this will help those of us living with us to understand, be more compassionate, and accepting of our adaptations to keep ourselves safe. 
    This column will present a scenario such as the one above, and ask that you comment on how you would navigate it. Let’s talk about it. Let’s share ideas.  Using the example above, here’s the scenario for this issue:
    What would you do?
    Your kind-hearted friend invites you to dinner and insists on cooking for you.  You arrive and the first thing she says is, “I’ve spent all day making this for you. Oh, I bought this salad dressing for you, but you might want to read the ingredients first.”  You do, and it contains malt vinegar.  You look around the kitchen and notice evidence of cross-contamination in the rest of the meal.  What do you do? 
    Please comment below and feel free to share the tricky scenarios that you’ve encountered too.  Let’s discuss how to surmount these social situations.  What would you do?

    Celiac.com 07/12/2018 - Previous research has shown that the oral administration of Bifidobacterium infantis Natren Life Start super strain (NLS-SS) reduces of gastro-intestinal symptoms in untreated celiac disease patients. The reduction of symptoms was not connected with changes in intestinal permeability or serum levels of cytokines, chemokines, or growth factors. Therefore, researchers suspected that the reduction of symptoms might be related to the modulation of innate immunity.
    To test that hypothesis, a team of researchers set out to assess the potential mechanisms of a probiotic B.infantis Natren Life Start super strain on the mucosal expression of innate immune markers in adult patients with active untreated celiac disease compared with those treated with B. infantis 6 weeks and after 1 year of gluten-free diet.
    The research team included Maria I. Pinto-Sanchez, MD, Edgardo C. Smecuol, MD, Maria P. Temprano,RD, Emilia Sugai, BSBC, Andrea Gonzalez, RD, PhD, Maria L. Moreno,MD, Xianxi Huang, MD, PhD, Premysl Bercik, MD, Ana Cabanne, MD, Horacio Vazquez, MD, Sonia Niveloni, MD, Roberto Mazure, MD, Eduardo Mauriño, MD, Elena F. Verdú, MD, PhD, and Julio C. Bai, MD. They are affiliated with the Medicine Department, Farcombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada; the Small Intestinal Section, Department of Medicine and the Department of Alimentation at Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo, Gastroenterology Hospital and Research Institute at the Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    The team determined the numbers of macrophages and Paneth cells, along with the expression of a-defensin-5 expression via immunohistochemistry in duodenal biopsies.
    Their results showed that a gluten-free diet lowers duodenal macrophage counts in celiac disease patients more effectively than B. infantis, while B. infantis lowers Paneth cell counts and reduces expression of a-defensin-5.
    This study documents the differential innate immune effects of treatment with B. infantis compared with 1 year of gluten-free diet. The team calls for further study to better understand the synergistic effects of gluten-free diet and B. infantis supplementation in celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 07/11/2018 - For people with celiac disease, finding decent gluten-free bread is like searching gold. Many have given up on bread entirely and others begrudgingly relate themselves to the ignominious frozen aisle at their supermarket and content themselves with one of the many dry, shriveled, flavorless loaves that proudly tout the gluten-free label. 
    For these people, the idea of freshly baked bread is a distant, if comforting, memory. The idea of going to Paris and marching into a boulangerie and walking out with a warm, tasty, gluten-free baguette that was freshly baked on the premises that morning, is like a dream. Now, in some Parisian bakeries, that dream is becoming a reality. And the tear of joy from the thankful gluten-free masses are sure to follow.
    These days, a single sign on the awning speaks to hungry customers who peruse the tarts and chou buns, and the loaves that fill the cooling on racks behind a glass pane at Chambelland boulangerie and café in Paris’ 11th arrondissement. The sign lettered in French translates: “artisan baker; flour producer; naturally gluten free.” That’s right. Naturally gluten-free. At a bakery. In Paris. 
    Only the flat, focaccia-style loaves, and the absence of baguettes, tells customers that this bakery is something different. Chambelland opened its doors in 2014 and continues to do a brisk business in delicious, freshly baked gluten-free breads and other goods.
    The boulangerie is the work of Narhaniel Doboin and his business partner, Thomas Teffri-Chambelland. They use flour made of grains including rice, buckwheat and sorghum to make delicious gluten-free baked goods. Doboin says that customers queued in the rain on the first day, hardly believing their eyes, some began to cry. 
    For gluten-free Parisians, there was a time before Chambelland, and the time after. If you find yourself in Paris, be sure to search them out for what is sure to be a gluten-free delight.
    Or maybe book your ticket now.
