Seriously,

This is the most ridiculous thread I've ever written.

Here goes:

I CAN'T FIND MY COOKBOOKS. AGGGGGGGHHHHH!

We moved about three months ago, and we're still not done unpacking. My cookbooks were in a box labled "GLUTEN FREE COOKBOOKS." I have searched the two rooms we are still unpacking with no luck. I know they are here somewhere.

I love my cookbooks; it is a way to cope with this diet and not feel like I'm missing out on anything.

Actually, cooking is relaxing. I enjoy the results and making my family happy. And I even appreciate my mistakes so that I can learn next time what to do different.

Right now, I'm baking from memory (which is scary in itself). I know this is a stupid thread, but we are financially tight and I can make twelve pizza crusts from scratch for the price of 3 or 4 premade.

That's it. Thanks for reading. -Julie

I actually have moved to internet recipes for most things, so I have a lot of soft copies, but still, i would be upset too - tho there's no way I would have waited 3 months to tear open every box in every pile 'til i found them!

Been there!! Done that!!!

Laughing at your topic title . . . how can we NOT come and read your rant with a title like that!!! :lol::lol:

You know that somebody here has a recipe that you're looking for/quite can't remember. I'm sure there are thousands of gluten-free cookbook owners here. Ask if there is something in particular you would like for us to look up.

We moved when I was in 6th grade. My favoUrite skirt was lost in the process. Found it about 4 years later. I could get it on but . . . the word "indecent" doesn't quite cover it. :lol:

Janet,

Yeah...I think I'd have had to give it up with that four year old skirt. ;) But at least you found it. Did you know that you could have made a pillow out of it? (sorry...been watching the Home, Sewing, and Painting Channel since I can't cook) <_< God knows, I need to get back in the kitchen.

Collette,

No, I haven't found them. I'm sitting here at my desk surrounded by a sea of random books.

Lets see here...I'm looking around...I see my old Statistics book from college, How to be a bartender, Powerpoint for Dummies (I still didn't get it) :huh: , and the list goes on. Without even one cookbook!

Hugs, laughs, and hold tight to your cookbooks -Julie

Check your local library! Our county library system has an extensive selection of gluten-free cookbooks. Maybe you can check out some of your favorites until you find yours. Our library will let us renew books twice before returning them as long as nobody else has them on hold. You could concievably have books for 3 months before you absolutely had to return them. That should give you plenty of time to find them.

Hope you find the missing box.

Thank you Colleen! Actually, I hadn't even considered the library, which seems like such a basic idea, but it never occured to me.

I never thought they would have gluten-free cookbooks, but yours does? I'll definitely see if I can get the hubby to ride with me into town one day this week!

Thanks again! B) -Julie

I get a great deal of my recipes from the net. You may want to search some sites like:

http://www.allrecipes.com

http://www.recipezaar.com

http://www.kraft.com

http://www.foodphilosopher.com

The library is a great idea! I hope they have a few books to get you by for a while.

You can always post here if you are craving something. Everyone would be happy to help.

Ours has dozens of titles! Our county has lots of linked libraries, so we can check out books from any of them. We can just log in to the website, find what we want at any library in the county and put it on hold. It will be shipped to our local library and then we can pick it up. Anytime I see a new gluten-free cookbook I want to try, I always try to check it out from the library first to see if I like it.

Also, if the title you want is not available from your local library, you may be able to get it from interlibrary loan. I have gotten books from library systems in other states that way. If you speak to the librarian at your local branch, he/she should be able to tell you if that option is open to you.

Well, not to put a damper on this subject but I moved in august...... still looking for one of the phones, a box of clothes, my painting supplies (OMG the living room is PINK!)

They say if you dont use it in a year toss it you dont need it, but they COULDN'T have been talking about cookbooks!

did you by chance check the garage? thats where I found my computer speakers (in december) ;)

Oh, Locolady

I feel your pain! :D

I also have other small objects that I haven't found, but I know they are packed in the endless boxes labled "living room decor."

My cookbook box was very clearly labled (on multiple sides) GLUTEN FREE COOKBOOKS...I thought that would be obvious enough. :rolleyes: (silly me)!

Hey, I still haven't found my second phone either! My one good cordless was left off the charger and died in the middle of the day. Don't you just love moving?!?

I have done my best to check the garage, but it is packed with furniture etc. (and it has also been very cold here in Ga.). We moved from a 2400 sq. ft. home to a home with about 1000 sq. feet. Needless to say, I don't have room for all my junk and furniture.

Bless your heart, we are painting right now. My hubby had to go out and buy new supplies. My walls aren't pink like yours, but they are bright yellow and some are painted bright yellow-green. We need sun glasses to walk through the house! :huh: I don't know what they were thinking when they painted this.

Best of luck finding all of your stuff!

From a very hungry, Julie

Thank you for the extra tips. We also have an inter-library network. By gosh, by the end of this week, I'm having meals again! :)

I totally understand the moving frustrations. I moved in August and I still have days of wondering where things went. And I've only got a small one-bedroom apartment!

I get all my books from the library. A majority of books I only read once so I see no reason to spend money on those. My old library had tons of gluten-free related books, and it was a medium-sized library. You can usually order books from other libraries in the vicinity easily and if they don't have it, they can order from other state libraries. You usually have to ask the reference desk to do that for you.

DO go to your library.....that's what I was going to say and then I saw it here. My local libraries

(and interrlibrary loans) have lots........OR......you can go to a Borders or a Barnes and Noble and

sit in there cafe and write down recipes out of books if the directions aren't too extensive. Just thought I'd throw that one out there too.

I too moved this year......Sept 1st. Moved from a 3-br townhouse to a small 2-bed apt and will be

unpacking books (I have LOTS! I think of them as my friends! :P ) probably for the next year......

and other things too. I am kicking myself for marking ALOT of Rubbermaid tubs merely "household

goods!"...........grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

I found my checks in the garage the first week that I moved in, brought them in the house and

haven't seen them since and cannot find them.......I mean REALLY! It's not like I had alot of people around (like when the movers were there) and had to hide them! I just got 8 temp checks from my bank. Probably I'll have to end up ordering more and the minute I have, I'll find them, right?

And I don't have to worry about gluten free cookbooks. Haven't gotten that far yet. Maybe in a

few years? Meanwhile, I am happy nuking easy things and buying from manufacturerers who are

very forthcoming.

Okay, I'm done! You all have a good week and enjoy some warm weather!.........................Angel

P.S. It's gonna be almost 50 here in the Chicago area tomorrow......get out the bikinis! :rolleyes:

It is not a rash, but hives and swelling.  Some doctors think it is a separate autoimmune disorder or that it piggybacks on to others.  It is more commonly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis.   My last bout lasted for six months.  They appeared (from my head to my soles of my feet) every afternoon around 4:00 pm and resolved by morning.  Oddly, they start with abdominal pain.  That is my first clue and next an itchy head.  I was on a cocktail of antihistamines and attempted a low histam
