  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I have a few questions if you don't mind; does the oil go in the mixture or is it to grease the pan? How many pancakes should this recipe make? I've never cooked American style pancakes before and ended up with 2 enormous ones about 1cm thick, which were nice but probably meant for more than one person? Thanks!
  3. I tried the damp paper towel trick and that really improved the tortilla. This time it was salt and pepper with the eggs and that tasted nice as well. I haven't eaten cheese for years (and then it was cheese spread, not real cheese) so I've no idea if I'll like it but its worth a try! Thanks for the hints, Edd
  4. After reading that scrambled eggs and gluten-free tortillas are a good combination I decided to have a go. (Bear in mind I've never scrambled an egg or eaten a tortilla until today). I don't really like the taste of eggs but it came out very nice and I will be making it again. It was tricky to eat without egg spilling out everywhere though, so I'm after some tips. Is there a good method to scramble an egg? I whisked 2 large eggs with 1 teaspoon of milk in a bowl, tipped it into a non stick pan (to which the egg proceeded to stick ) waited for the bottom to look non-liquid then mixed it about a bit with a spatula. Should the tortilla wrap all the way around the eggs or just fold once. The problem I had was the preparation for soft tortillas, 30 seconds in the microwave with a few drops of water, produced a tortilla which was anything but soft and so wrapping was a problem. Are there any good toppings you can recommend? I had a bit of maple syrup which was delicious but a bit of variety couldn't hurt. Thanks for any tips! Edd
  5. Brian, Unfortunately, I am located in the UK and as far as I can tell Enterolab are a US only company. Also, it doesn't really make a difference to me if my doctor confirms I have celiac (or if I'm sensitive to gluten), the thing that really matters is whether I feel better. With this in mind a gluten free diet is now under way. I've been gluten free (hopefully) since Sunday (the 4th) and am feeling better. I still feel a bit strange at times so cutting out my breakfast porridge is in order. Finding a replacement is a bit of a chore, but walking round the supermarket for a while tonight should resolve the matter. Thanks for your advice.
  6. A visit to the doctor 12 months ago resulted in a diagnosis of IBS. However, I now think I may have celiac disease but if it turns out I don't its still one more thing ticked off the 'no' list. My BMs can be normal* for a few days but then I sense a gurgling in my guts, get gas and within a few hours will have D. This is where my symptoms seem to differ from the typical IBS sufferer though; I don't have bad pain, and once I've gone I feel fine and won't go again for a day at which point the BM will usually be normal again. I do however have urgency. Other symptoms are bloating, feeling tired, tired eyes (could be using the computer too much ) and irritability some days. *normal doesn't mean the typical sausage BM, just not D. I'm male, 5'7" and weighed 114 pounds this morning but feel as though I eat enough, just stay thin for some other reason. Thanks for any help.
