Ok, it was made abundantly clear to me today that people have preconceived notions that anything I cook over the holidays is going to suck since it will be "gluten free".

So veterans, please roll out the killer recipes for us newbies, please!!! Suggested blogs, articles??

I need a killer pie crust recipe, and suggestions on how to mimic the french bread texture in oyster stuffing - reduce the liquid??

I have been diagnosed since April so I wouldn't say I'm a veteran....HOWEVER, I do have my family over often for dinner....since I've been diagnosed they haven't noticed a change in food I make aside from desset....Even at that...Betty Crocker makes an excellent chocolate cake mix (not as soft day 2...still good, similar to a brownie. Day 1 is fluffy tho!)

In the organic section there are gravy packages made with corn starch! they are good.

You can always make mashed potatoes mixed iwth sour cream and melt cheddar cheese ontop!

Veggies are yummy sauted in Kraft golder italian dressing (its gluten-free)

Watch your turkey and ham you buy!!! some have perservatives with gluten :( but some do not!

I can't help you with the pie crust, sorry! Good luck!

I made a crumb pie crust with gluten-free ginger snap cookies. It was the best crust for pumpkin pie! You could use margarine I think there is a soy free one - Earth Balance? I've seen that subject mentioned here.

Not pie or oyster recipes, but favorites for us:

I promise, NO ONE will know this is gluten free bread: http://gingerlemongirl.blogspot.com/2008/03/artesian-maple-oat-bread-gluten-free.html

I have gotten so many comments from people about this bread. I've even turned it into cinnamon raisin.

PB cookies (again, NO ONE will know they are gluten-free):

Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies

1 C. peanut butter

1 C. sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, roll into 1 inch balls. Place cookie balls on an ungreased cookie sheet or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and smash like a # sign with a fork. Cook in 350 degree oven until lightly golden about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool and enjoy! You can cook these until just done for softer cookies-or longer for crunchy ones. You can double or triple amounts to make more cookies-there

So far the dinner menu for Thanksgiving this year looks like this:

Oven roasted turkey

Oven baked ham

rice stuffing

mashed potatoes

home made turkey gravy ( using rice flour as a thickener but you also could use corn starch)

candied sweet potatoes

green beans in cheese sauce (again using rice flour to make the white sauce for the cheese )

cranberry sauce

Apple crisp

Home made cheese cake with gluten free gram cracker crust

strawberry jello salad using gluten free pretzels

yeast rolls are something that my daughter and I have not been able to make "up to standard" yet but we are still trying

**edited to add**

I forgot the relish and cheese trays :)
