Pizza is my all-time crave. I would think after not having it for a couple of years, the craving would be gone, but nope, I just die everytime I see a pizza commercial on tv. I keep telling myself I'm going to throw caution to the wind and just give in to it but I just never do, for one reason or another. Its cetainly not a strong, decision making skill....because I STILL WANT IT!

I always say if I ever go back to Key West I think I may have to consider the chocolate dipped frozen key lime pie. It was the best thing I ever ate and I'm not sure I could turn it down! lol!

Macaroni and cheese. You know the kind in the cardboard box with the unnaturally day-glo orange cheese powder in it? This was my favorite as a kid and my comfort food as an adult. I'm being super careful with dairy and cheese while I heal but, man, do I miss this. I actually moaned a little when I walked by it at the grocery store the other day, such is my longing.

O sticky, gooey, powdery cheese product.

The only thing I crave that I can't find a gluten free version of is phyllo. I would love to scarf down a whole package of raspberry turnovers or a sheet of baklava.

Amy's ( i think thats the brand) makes a gluten-free Rice mac & cheese- a smaller box with the fluorescent powdered cheese, and a bigger box with the squeeze cheese... works for me :)

Fresh, crusty French bread. Anyone know how to get that French bread crust and the fluffy inside gluten-free?

My cornbread recipes have not changed. I make spoonbread or an old-fashioned buttermilk cornbread. Need a recipe, Rowena, or are you still off of dairy?

Ooh I'd much like a recipe... And no I ain't off dairy completely. (Just mostly, kinda like I always have been...My moms lactose intolerant, so I kind of grew up dairy free, but I occasionally eat a bite of cheese, or something. Not much though) But I'm good at substitutions should I feel like I need to use something else...

Rowena, I have a good gluten free cornbread recipe (just cornmeal no other non-gluten flours) that I have made dairy free using a variety of nondairy milks. It is a very forgiving recipe too.

My craving would have to be the chicken & daumplings I used to make. I have made other recipes and they are good, just a different style of dumplings. My recipe used 6 cups of AP flour and I just hate to use that much gluten-free flour on one dish.

Raven-

I'm 33 years old and I was diagnosed 3 years ago... and I didn't truly find my cooking "mojo" until I was gluten free. I love watching Food Network TV and I pride myself on the fact that I've been able to make almost any recipe I see in a gluten free version.

UNTIL you see those Phyllo dough recipes.... my partner is Greek, so he grew up with it. And it's impossible... there really is no gluten-free substitute! Sad...

Building off that, I love to watch the show "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on food network... and the Neely's were scarfing down a huge piece of pound cake with caramel sauce all over it.... and it looked SOOO good. I wanted a big huge bite, but then I realized that I could make it if I wanted to :)

That sounds really good! Lat week, I made a spice cake and topped it with homemade caramel frosting. So good!

Old-fashioned Cornbread

2 c cornmeal

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp sugar or honey

2 eggs

2 c fresh buttermilk

2 Tbsp butter

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Melt butter in 9x9 pan or cast iron skillet. Mix dry ingredients. Add eggs and buttermilk and mix. Swirl the melted butter in the pan to grease it and then pour the melted butter into the batter and mix briefly. Pour bread in pan and bake 25-35 minutes. Remove from pan and cool. Traditional recipes use bacon grease instead of butter - if you do that leave out the salt.

I'm not sure how this would work without the buttermilk, but if you're good at substitutions maybe you can get it to work.

I recently received a breadmaker as a late birthday present , it has a gluten free mode on it and has different gluten free bread mix recipes , it's AMAZING , the bread tastes great. On Sunday I made some bread with the Juvela all purpose mix and the bread tasted really really good. I said after trying a slice it tasted like french bread :) Do you have a breadmaker ?

DONUTS...though I didn't indulge before I went gluten-free, because of the calories. Now...I just might! (But they have to be the yeast...raised ones, not the cake ones!)

What kids of dumplings do you like? If it's not the big fluffy ones...I have a good recipe. It's for egg noodles, but made a little thicker, they are like the chicken and dumplings I made before being gluten-free. (If it's the big fluffy ones...I thought I saw a recipe...let me keep looking in my cookbooks)

Christi, I'll take your recipe too!!! Thanks! As for dumplings, I have an amazing recipe for them, but I have yet to adapt to gluten-free so when I do, I'll hand it over. (Assuming it is successful of course.)

Tennisman- try making a recipe without the gluten free setting, it works too, and I think it tastes better. In fact Pamelas bread mix tells you NOT to use the gluten-free setting. But anyway....

I have a breadmaker and I can make good fresh bread, but mine doesn't make the French bread crust right even with wheat. I loved the fresh baked baguettes in France, and I'm after the real deal. Long, thin bread, with a chewy, shiny crust and that fluffy, holey inside that's so soft it's hard to even butter. Even if I do a French style bread with wheat in my bread machine, the shape of the loaf is all wrong so you don't get all the crust. I used to make passable baguettes by setting up the dough in the bread machine and then baking in my oven with a pan of water at 450F for steam. I've played with gluten-free flours a bit but the texture of gluten-free baguettes I've made don't come close to the real thing.

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
