I've not yet bought masa harina (but will try it). The corn flour I have is BRM. And it is a fine flour, not corn starch. Definitely not cornmeal, which is coarse.

Hmmm...I just search that nearly normal flour mix and foudn the recipe. I have masa harina and it is a very finely ground flour, not like corn meal and not like corn starch either. I'm tempted to try it in place of the corn flour now since I can't use BRM. I will let you know if I do. Masa harina is great from making homemade corn tortillas.

I just posted a whole bunch of recipes on my new blog here on this site! It's basically a mirror of the blog I have on our own website. You can see the blog at The Liberated Kitchen, Redux

All the recipes are 100% gluten-free and fine for the Full GAPS diet. Some of them are fine for earlier GAPS stages, too, though I haven't tagged them as such yet.


Our family is transitioning off the GAPS Intro Diet and into the Full GAPS Diet.

Gluten-Free since November 2010

GAPS Diet since January/February 2011

me - not tested for celiac - currently doing a gluten challenge since 11/26/2011

partner - not tested for celiac

ds - age 11, hospitalized 9/2010, celiac dx by gluten reaction & genetics. No biopsy or blood as we were already gluten-free by the time it was an option.

dd - age 12.5, not celiac, has Tourette's syndome

both kids have now-resolved attention issues.

Great to see someone as in love with nettles as I am! I have yet to use them in pesto (thanks for the idea!) but I do make at least 10 kinds of pestos (i.e. mint, arugula). The walnut almond butter intrigues me as well. I grow my own garden, forage in our Croatia garden/hedgerows/sea (am a Master Gardener) and make all my own condiments, etc.

Thanks for posting!

It's called freeloading, I believe :rolleyes:

We should do a Progressive Dinner sometime. Anyone live in the Indy area?

I don't believe any of you people are actually making all these yummy things! I am thinking about coming round to your homes to check on the quality of the food! Will require good planning so I don't have to back track. B)

Progressive Dinner, anyone?????? I've never been able to participate in one b/c of eating gluten-free for so long. THAT would be fun.

I've been searching for the link for the meatloaf recipe that included chorizo sausage as one of three ground meats. Anyone remember that one?

That would be one LONG dinner party. I live in VA. You can come to my place for dessert and watch the sun set over the bay though. :)

Tonight we had chicken fried rice and sugar snap peas.

Sounds yummy! Was the naan gluten-free? I would love a good recipe if you can share.

Man, I love authentic ethnic Indian food! Good onion bhajis and naan bread are...well...pretty amazing.

We have curried goat with red and white rice. Individual strawberry shortcakes. Nothing fancy - just good eats!

Yup. Everything I make is gluten-free. I'll have to post it. It's one of Carol Fenster's recipes. Super easy (my husband made it tonight).

I don't know how "authentic" it is, but the bhajis are from my Indian cookbooks. I'll have to run it by my Indian friend and see what she thinks! :ph34r: She may just burst my bubble...

Baked chicken thighs, rice, cauliflower... maybe some asparagus. Nothing exciting here.

Sounds pretty exciting to me. I worked out in the yard and have yet to give dinner a thought. Of course, I don't have to come up with dinner for a family of 7 either. :P

I'm going to try making this chicken pot pie recipe someone kindly posted for me: http://glutenfreeeasily.com/potpie/

It looks delicious!

I had an egg salad sandwich and potato chips (Lay's Stax). Too tired to do anything else. (Oh, and 2 glasses of Chardonnay. Yum!) :P

We had grilled marinated lamb with brown basmati rice pilaf and sliced fresh GA peaches.

Dessert was a potato vodka smoothie with frozen banana, another fresh peach and a splash of pineapple juice. I liked dessert best. :D

It WAS delicious! My crust did not quite workout the same as the recipe. It was more like dumplings on top than a crust. it was good though. My husband declared it the BEST chicken pot pie he has EVER had and I have not made chicken pot pie for around two years (well before going gluten-free). I could not even taste the coconut milk. Success!

Spent a little too long in the garden and ended up grazing:

2 pea pods (13 beautiful peas), raw

2 handfuls spinach

1 handful green leaf lettuce

assorted nibbles of herbs

(home again)

crunchmaster crackers

pecorino romano cheese (i have got to find other sheep cheese!)

Maybe nothing else.. had to do PT for a cranky knee and it's hot enough that i'm not too hungry. Hmm... I should really eat something else...


2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable

3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG

4/2010 Negative biopsy

5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)

5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?
