Simple steak with noodles and green beans tonight since my youngest was having a playdate and I was starting to make cookies for christmas.

I am so so happy with how the cookies are turning out this year...made flourless peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip from the Pamela's baking and pancake mix package and also used the Pamela's in a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies that calls for wheat flour (they are perfect!!!). Yesterday I also made no bake cookies for my neighbor, peppermint fudge and rocky road fudge.

I was at a kids birthday party in the afternoon and had olives and stilton. I fell asleep before dinner (yawning smiley)

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

I'll bet. :) You have excellent willpower. I always taste everything I make (I have to make sure it's "okay")

This has been very difficult of late -- I never realized how much I tested the food I cook. I've learned to use the "testers" living with me -- but am still nervous when I entertain -- hard not knowing that it tastes good.

Absolutely sure that RBJ tastes fantastic -- and have decided this shall be my Christmas Day dessert -- just for me once the day's festivities are done -- I'm having dreams of tasting the magic potion :) Everyone else has requested it as one of our snacks earlier in the day.

I wish, it's not so much willpower as having to watch my sugar intake. I have my hubby do the tasting for me. Today I'm making the brownies and golden kolacky for christmas so I am just adding chicken to last nights noodles and green beans.

I've got an eager hubby taste-tester, too.(and I need to watch my sugar intake as well) Good thing they are so willing. :)

We had a little dinner party last night and I am beat so, it's a bunch of "encores" to pick from:

--crostinis with goat cheese and roasted, marinated peppers

--antipasta platter

--shrimp cocktail

--beef tenderloin

--the salmon is gone (I let my cat have it :D)

--potatoes gratin with 3 cheeses

and I know Karen wants to know this:

--Tiramisu

I have to say, I cheated and used Scharr ladyfingers, rather than make my own, and they worked out very well.

I soaked them in the espresso syrup instead of just brushing it on. Softened them up just fine. I let it cure overnight

and topped with sweetened whipped cream and dusted the whole thing with cocoa powder, cinnamon and shaved chocolate curls.

NOTE TO LOVE 2 and SKI :

The redunkulous bacon jam (RBJ) was a huge hit and I gave some to my friend as a gift. She agreed with me---crazy good on the beef.

Never got to trimming the tree, it's still Naked, but the tree skirt draped around it with the cat happily snoozing on it was "good enough".

I'll do it tomorrow...maybe

I sent that link to Santa on the slopes of Vail! He was looking for an cute apron for me, not sure if he already got one. Not sure if this can get here in time. We should all order one and freak Cafe Press out!

It could be a New Year's present :)

........and yes, if we all hit them with orders, they may wonder what the Sam Hill is going on.

Made coconut-herbed pizza with cherry-tomato sauce, cayenne pepper, oregano, garlic, baby romaine and jumbo shrimp. Not bad, for a first time, but a pizza in a brownie pan is a bit sad.


Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.

Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.

Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.

No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.

Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

My body is trying to kill me.
