Speaking of applesauce, when I make it I like to infuse it with fresh rosemary or thyme and I roast my apples first. I just love the roasted flavour! :)

Just curious, what is the difference between roasting and baking ?

Lamb chops with steamed carrots and baked potatoes.


27, F, from the beautiful area of Twente in the Netherlands. English is not my first language, so I apologize for any errors.

Symptoms started in 2007, but no link to celiac disease was found until 2009. I learned of celiac disease through the internet, my doctor never recognized it. She put me on a diet before tests were done, so the initial tests failed. My GI advised me to do a gluten provocation, which had to be stopped too soon to take a reliable biopsy. Based on symptoms such as vitamin deficiencies, GI problems and osteopenia my diagnosis now is: glutenintolerant, suspected celiac disease. This diagnosis was in march 2010, and I've been so much better ever since.

Good question! There are subtle differences. I bake a cake but roast carrots. I think this article describes it better than I could!

...once you find out what it was

I'll be good until I run out of that little packet from the indian grocer! It's either dried cardamon pods or tamarind pods (husk removed), I think. :D

Tonight we're having stuffed peppers again. Peppers are .25 each now, so I stuffed them with chopped onion, leftover chicken, asiago cheese, mexican quesa cheeese and Udi's crummbs. And I had finally had my corn challenge with gluten-free corn chips and salsa.

It's five hours later and so far so good, except my fingers are burning.

That could be due to cutting and stuffing the pablano peppers bare handed, but it never bothered me to stuff pablanos without gloves before.

Keep your fingers crossed for me! :o

For a cold rainy day: Hormel Turkey Chili, I was so happy to find some canned chili that is gluten and soy free, wonder of wonders! Mixed with some canned corn and rotel tomatoes, with some tortilla chips on top. Bob's cornbread on the side.

Some poblanos are pretty warm. They do that to me even if they don't taste hot. Hope you don't wear contacts...

I'm cooking babi ketjap tonight: crispy pork in a sticky-sweet sauce. A side dish is nasi: baked rice with leek, onions, scrambled egg and diced ham.

Oh, and I'm also going to bake kruidnoten :) Sinterklaas is tomorrow, and you can't have that without kruidnoten. Those are very small spiced cookies: http://www.de-chef.nl/foto/1036863854.JPG I'll put the recipe in the "Going Dutch" topic for Dutch recipes.

I am thinking greens sauteed in bacon grease over red quinoa. I've never tried the red quinoa so I figured I'd need the bacon flavor as a support device. :P

Quinoa to be cooked in turkey stock.

THANK YOU I am so happy too--it's been trial and error for the last couple of months figuring out what I can eat, yesterday was more of a "trial" day and I'm happy to say I feel fantastic this morning. I am DEFINITELY counting my blessings that everything I ate yesterday was successful!!! :D

Thank you prickly, I'm pretty happy about that. Funny thing is, I've been postponing a challenge for ages. DP wanted me to get him a 12 pack of beer when I went to the grocery yesterday. I was looking at the corn chips, found one without soy and ta da.

Tonight we're having smoked pork butt with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. DP is still all over his smoker with football season on. I'm pretty tired of smoked meat, but he's put up with my many food ordeals, so I'm hanging with the smoker.

:D

We're having spaghetti and meatballs.

I'll trade you!

That really is great news, excluding corn can be difficult IMO.

Yep, corn is a tough one to eliminate from the diet and H&B products. Truth is, I'm still kind of scared of it.

Hope your pasta was good! :)

(I can't trade him, he saved me when times got really dark.) But if you ever want some smoked meat, holler, I've got it in the refrigerater and freezer. I stick it in soups and beans, stuff peppers and mushroooms with it, keep trying to come up with ideas for using it up.

We can do shredded pork nachos now! :o Ha! I know what we're having for dinner tomorrow.

Hachee (spiced stewed beef) with cooked potatoes and beet salad or sprouts on the side. We have friends over for dinner tonight, they are always so picky about vegetables. Their mother never prepared anything fresh, literally everything was from cans and boxes and often way overcooked. I'm on a mission to show them the taste of freshly-cooked things. So far there are several dishes they used to dislike that have been promoted to: "I guess this is fine..." :P
