What I Miss Most.

Recommended Posts

Oh, shoot. Sorry! :(

Thank you anyway. No yeast or eggs is making bread tough to find right now. Maybe eventually I will figure something out, we have been doing some experimenting with almond flour lately so hopefully I find something suitable.

Oh, I bet it makes it very hard. Have you tried something like an Irish Soda bread that does not require yeast? This recipe has no yeast or eggs. Perhaps it might work? I personally omit the currants and caraway (not a fan) but the base is good.

I just KNEW there was something obvious I was missing when I was typing above - PASTA!!!! Fresh, homemade fabulous durum pasta. I'm making my own gluten-free pasta but it is just not the same. :( I stick fresh herbs between sheets and roll out, creating lovely patterns and flavour to try to make up for the missing gluten.

FYI cakes and cupcakes are really easy to make gluten-free. People cannot tell they are gluten-free. I have all sorts of recipes if you are so inclined. :)

That would be awesome! Thanks so much!!!!

The weather just turned real cool here. It made really miss making homemade noodles and chicken noodle soup. I made chicken and rice..but it was not even close to the same comfort food!

I really miss Panera's cinnamon bagel too..fresh and chewy. It used to be my treat on the days I ran errunds.

I tried making a pizza, but the dough seemed more like a biscuit than pizza dough. Very disappointing!

I used to make cream puffs every Christmas. They were a family favorite. I found a recipe, but haven't tried it yet.

My sisters will be VERY disappointed if I can't make their favorite treat, so I hope this recipe works.

Man. People mentioned cinnamon rolls... We moved to California a couple years ago, and soon after, a vegan cinnamon bun joint opened up nearby. They're really delicious... But I was getting sicker and sicker and didn't know about celiac. Once I figured it out, I got some rolls for my gluten "bender" before I went in for an endoscopy... Just being in the store was enough to give me a

Reaction, and eating the rolls was hell.

What rotten luck, I sometimes think. I move to a vegan wonderland for food, and two years later, I can't touch most of it! The loss of convenience is the bummer, especially in our convenience-oriented world.


glutenfree since 6/2011. sick for 30 years.

borderline blood test, negative biopsy.

SEVERELY sensitive celiac with DH. sensitive to contact and ingestion.

asthma (was severe; improved exponentially after 6/11)

spina bifida & childhood SCI at L4/L5 (possibly complicated by weak bones)

countless fractures and infections.

i once listed over 100 symptoms or conditions that improved or were eliminated after 6/11.

very vegan. and, of course, i've also discovered some other food allergies.

I miss pizza so much as well but what I really miss the most is eating some of my families peruvian and chilean dishes. I went to Chile a few years ago and eating their empanadas and completos were amazing. I also miss a good beer here and there but definitely my families food. We have converted a few things but you know..it's not the same! :unsure:
