I baken brownies last night for a funeral luncheon that our church had. I used a regular mix, got a little bit of the batter on my hands, and my hands itch all day. And I feel like a witch with a capital B! Is that a normal symptom of maybe breating or touching gluten? I feel sorry for my co-worker today, I've just been plain mean today.

It probably was the batter. I would make the gluten free pantry's truffle brownies next time. They are so much better then regular brownies. The only thing is freeze them for about a half hour, then cut and put on the plate. They are much easier to cut when partialy frozen. My gluten eating husband would kill for these.

I do not bake gluten free items when I am not eating the items. I was making these for a luncheon and I was not going to be there to eat. I can't afford to make gluten free things for events that I am not at, it is just too costly. I guess I will just tell them I can't bake anymore.

If it's something you really want to do, you could wear plastic gloves and even consider a dust mask so you don't inhale any flour and swallow. I used a mask recently when we did some drywall work in our bedroom--worked very well :)

You may have inhaled a bit of the flour, and that's why you had the mood symptom.

Or it could be the weather. If you live in a colder part of the country like I do, that is. Now that heat is running, my skin is getting dry and itchy. I've found that using a little moisturizer after I shower does a good job of cutting down on both the dry skin and the itchy. As a guy I balked at the idea of moisturizer, but by golly it beats itching!

Just inhaling flour can make me witchy, I suspect you are correct that you can't bake them treats with gluten in them anymore. :(

I wonder if there are any easy, inexpensive gluten free treats to be made.
