Mamaw,

So sorry it wasn't what you had hoped. But at least you got to buy some good stuff!

And tell Rocket I thought he did a mighty-fine job typing!

Broncobux - I am going to Columbus on the 17th for my GI appointment and we are planning on trying out one of Cameron Mitchell's restaurants. I saved all the info that you posted a few weeks ago. Now I just have to remember to print it and take it with me!

Hey Kris

What do you think about the stuff you purchased from Everybody Eats???? I was a tad disappointed this year. I loved visiting but I'm with you about some of it. I paid because I hope some of it goes to research... In fact I paid for three of us... I don't think I will do it again. Maybe just for one of us. We really didn't get alot out of the lectures. great for new ones tho....

Did you happen to get a business card that was being passed out for the new cookbook??

mamaw

I was a bit dissapointed. The Challah was really good when it was first opened, but it didn't last 24 hours before it turned to sawdust. : ( The bagettes were much smaller than I anticipated. I think I am going to stick with Anna's breads for a while. I will be buying myself a (zoruchi?) bread machine before the week is out.

I don't believe I got a card for the new cookbook. What's the title?

Just wanted to add another great restaurant for anyone visiting or living in Columbus...Hyde Park (there is one on 23/Crosswoods, Henderson Rd & Frantz Rd). They don't have a gluten-free menu, but I gave the server my Triumph dining card and they were great!! I had filet mignon, baked potato, salad and creme brulee for dessert....it was awesome!!! They were very accommodating!! It is on the pricey side ($24.95 for the filet alone), but oh so good!!!!

No tickets yet, but I just love being in C-bus for that weekend -- SOOOO MUCH FUN!

I will be back in Dayton over X-mas (to see the family)...

I noticed your username -- when do you graduate from Nursing school? My mom works at MVH in the NICU unit (graduate nursery)

I should graduate in about a year. I had to take some time off of school to care for my mom while she was sick and because my husband was transferred to WP so now I'm in the middle of trying to get into the Wright State program....what a nightmare! I work in the pharmacy at MVH, how funny! I tip my hat to your mom, I don't know if I could do the NICU. I hope you have a great time next week and I'll keep my fingers crossed that you score some tickets!!!

Hi to all who are in ohio i would like to know who live in ohio b/c i love to cook and i have a lot of recipes that i am willing to make for people with celiac disease or sensitivity. just let me know.

lauren

Hi I was just diagnosed in July. I was wondering why you think your grandma had lymphoma because I had enlarged lymph nodes in my abdoominal area and this finally led me to get more tests. I have suffered what I thought was irritable bowel for years like 10 or 20 . Now I know it's celiac. I have been on gluten free since this last July 07 and I feel so much better . I live near Kent State U. I have not yet made many gluten free things except for Angelfoood cake.

Hi, I live about 3 miles from Kent State too and would love to connect with you. My adult son was told yesterday that he probably has celiac and needs to start a gluten free diet. He went through extenstive testing with a GI physician in Akron. Please get back to me as there is so much to learn. Thanks

Hi Mimzy,

Was your son told he does or probably has it. I first had a Upper GI with concentration on the small bowel this showed them a lot , then I had the blood test for celiac, then a EGD with biopsy and all of these showed it. I also had a liver Bx because of liver damage. What can I help you with. The dietitian was of no help to me I just have been searching the web. I have gotten a lot of foods at seven grains in Tallmadge and some at Mustard seed in Montrose.

Hi Michelann,

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm new to this message board and hoped I'd get some kind of notice when my message was answered by you. Sorry I took so long writting back. I'll figure the board out eventually. In the meantime shopping for gluten free food is the hardest part. We spent 3 hours in Cleveland at Trader Joes today. They have a ton of gluten free food with much better prices than I'd found locally ( Kent Natural Foods and Cappabiancos) Its just taking forever figuring out what are "safe" foods. I haven't looked in 7 grains yet but definitely will. The Dr. tested my son pretty throughly. He did blood work which showed that he carries the gene. He also had a stomach emptying test as he thought it might have been gastroparisis. That test was negative so then he did an endoscope and biopsy. The nurse that called with results was a little vague. She said he probably has Celiac and that the Dr. highly suggests he begin the diet as that will be the most definitive way to diagnosis. He also found that he has the H. pyloria infection. Its not related but requires major antibiotics. Anyway he will be starting the diet tomorrow and he has a follow up appointment in about 4 weeks. I guess as far as help I could use a shoulder.. Have you been to any support group meetings in the area? Maybe we can get together for a grocery shopping spree or go to a meeting. Lets stay in touch!

Hi Mimzy,

I tried to find your message and couldn't until today. I am new at this site also. so this is very challenging . I found Trader Joe's prices were very good compared to the two other places you mentioned. I did get on the mailing list at Seven Grains in Tallmadge they have the Nut Thins made by Blue Diamond for $2 a box compared to $3.29 other place, I really like the pecan ones the best. The Kent Acme has a few things in the organic area too. EXpensive though. Kreigers on Graham Rd also carries quite a lot in the back room area of the store

I haven't found a support group I guess I was using this to read and see what other are saying. I would love to meet sometime. I have actually gained weight since I have gone gluten free. The most frustrating thing is when you go to someone's house for a party or restaurant. It' is hard to eat . I haven't had much luck yet with my baking . I haven't tried to make bread just cookies that were thin as crackers and Angelfood cake. I have not found a premade bread that is good yet . I heard there is a bakery in Alliance that is gluten free. I also heard that the bakery in Stow at Oregon Trail Great Grains bakes gluten free bread but I don't know if I want to take a chance there with all the flour floating around for fear of contamination. I have been very careful. With all the problems this celiac has caused me I don't want to take any chances. Most manufacterers are very nice and some send coupons for the items they sell. Like Hilshire farm deli selects are fine to eat and they have sent me coupons. I don't go to the deli counters to buy meat I don't trust that they would clean the slicer enough from other gluten products. I also bought soft corn tortillas to use as rolups because bread is so dry and crumbly. I am not sure if we should post email addresses or phone # here or not. Let me know what you think. Michelann

Hi Lauren, I live in Ohio. Wellsville. South of Youngstown and north of Steubenville. It appears you are in Columbus? I'm new to this group and I have not been diagnosed but I have little doubt. Would love to get recipes.

Joe

Joe-

My husband and I currently live in Ashtabula, OH (up by the lake), but are planning to move to Toronto, OH shortly, as I recently got a job there. Where do you buy your gluten-free foods in the area? Is there anywhere besides Riesbecks that sells them?

Thanks!

If you haven't tried Anna's bread mixes you should!!! It is a great bread but if you were a town talk white bread person before going gluten-free the most likely you will not care for this bread. If you search the recipe section there is a great recipe by Lorka ( Laurie Crater) that everyone seems to love including my family. It is pretty forgiving so you can change the flours to whatever you have on hand. Plus there are so many good recipes from this site. There are many good gluten-free cooks on here.

By the way there is The Raisin Rack store in Canton & also near Columbus that carries much in gluten-free. Plus Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, The mustard Seed, Costco's has limited gluten-free another place is Jungle Jim's..Cindy's Health Food store in Warren, Ohio.

In October the Children's Hospital in Columbus has a nice conference with vendors so that is a good place to sample & buy on the spot.

I mentor in Pa (near Pittsburgh) helping people navigate through the gluten-free diet & finding their cravings.... if I can be of any other help please send me a private e-mail.

Ps. Carrabas in Boardman is a great place to eat gluten-free.

Hi Lauren, My name is Jan and I live in Canal Fulton, Ohio, so hey from Ohio too.

I have never been on this website so I hope I do it right. I am in desparate need of bread recipes, I especially need a bread recipe made with teff flour if you have one. Thank You SOOOOOOOOOOO much for sharing your recipes. My husband is Celiac, diagnosed about 7 years ago.

I hope this goes through.

My hsuband went to the Mustard seed last week and picked up a Pamela's angel food cake mix. I couldn't believe my eyes!!!!!!!!!!!! I have made this so many times but for some reason this mix would NOT thicken or double. I put it in the oven anyway and the whole inside carmelized---it was bizarre. I called the company right away and she said there were other complaints on this particular batch, so she sent me a free coupon for 7.00 to buy any product I wanted, which was very generous of her, but the darn thing was to be my puppies first birthday cake, go figure!!!!! I haven't gone to the raisin rack yet or Cosco's, but the new Buehlers in Massillon, Oh. has a nice variety of gluten-free products, but not enough variety for me. Thanks for responding to me, I appreciate it. What is your personal e-mail address, I don't know how to find it on the website---I am new to this.

Thanks again and have a great day.

Hello to Michelann, Mimzy and Janice Kelleher,

I am in the North Canton area. Just an FYI, we have a Raisin Rack that has a gluten free section. It's easily accessed from 77 south if you are at all interested. Take the Everhard Road exit. Turn left at Everhard (you will be staring at Westfield/Belden Village Mall) follow Everhard to Main Street and take a right. Go half a mile or so and Raisin Rack will be on your right. If you get to the Fisher Foods at 44th you've gone a few blocks too far. They have a support group that I think meets the first Saturday of the month.. I will have to double check on that. Also, local Giant Eagles and Clicks stores have been adding to their gluten-free sections as of late.

Chuck
