  1. Bread Recipes

    We have to agree that this is THE BEST bread and makes great sandwiches and is VERY easy to make. It also holds well for 3 days (which is the longest a loaf has lasted at our house) It also makes great french toast and grilled cheeses
  2. I Ate A Sandwich!

    THANK YOU for this wonderful bread!!!!! I made one loaf yesterday afternoon and Kaitlyn Grace ate 3 slices, it was so good that I ended up making another loaf last night. I used skim milk and I warmed it in the microwave. It rose very beautifully while baking a good 2-3 inches above my pan and did not deflate after baking. It slices great, no crumbled messes. It was a very easy bread to make. As a side note I added 1/2 cup of soy flour to the flour mixture and 1 cup of flax seed. THANK YOU AGAIN
  3. It was the Alton Brown one, Kaitlyn Grace was so happy when she watched him make cookies with her flour but was so disappointed in them.
  4. Zucchini Bread

    We LOVED this thank you so much for posting this!!! I made 5 batches of muffins and we froze them....they are great!!!!
  5. We made them twice and I thought they were awful and my 3 year old would not touch them. My 13 year old that eats anything took one bite, they were very grainy in texture and had a funky aftertaste.
  6. Dallas Fort Worth Area?

    I don't get a chance to post much or read the board much, but was just wondering if anyone here is in the Dallas/Fort Worth area? We are in North Richland Hills Just wanted to email or chat with people to get the best ideas and places to shop here for things for my 3 year old. We LOVE our GI and have no doctor complaints (we go to Medical City Dallas) Please email me if you think you can help me Amanda mommy to Kaitlyn Grace amandagrace75@charter.net
  7. Heidi, Yep the corn and gluten thing is crazy but doable. We have a private duty nurse 60 hours a week with my son. Kaitlyn Grace also has kidney reflux and GERD and lung problems, so they why us is starting. She asked me yesterday why she is always so sick and can't eat chicken nuggets anymore. I reminded her that she is not as sick as Noah and its only food, we can make our own chicken nuggets and they taste better that way and she could help me. Right now at 3 that suffices. I worry more about when she is older.
  8. Kaitlyn Grace started having problems also, we took her into her pedi because her hair started falling out (on top of the being tired) she was tested and put on an iron supplement, he said she was anemic. We are taking her in again next week to make sure her levels are going up.
  9. I sent them an email so maybe they will respond.....I forget about oats being cc......thanks guys, for now they will stay on the off limits kaitlyn grace shelf!!!! I will let y'all know if they respond to me or not :)
  10. Since I am still new to this i hope someone can help me, I found Odwalla bars in chocolate peanut flavor. here is the ingredient list: * Organic Rolled Oats * Brown Rice Syrup * Grape Juice Concentrate * Peanut Butter (Peanuts and Salt) * Dry Roasted Peanuts * Chocolate Chips (Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Chocolate Liquor, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin, Ground Vanilla Beans) * Date Puree * Plum Puree * Peanut Flour * Vegetable Glycerin * Crisp Rice (Rice Flour, Rice Bran, Rosemary Extract) * Organic Oat Flour * Organic Soy Nuts * Less Than 2% of: Organic Sunflower Oil * Calcium Carbonate * Natural Flavors * Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) * Salt * Baking Soda * Soy Lecithin * Vitamin E (d-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate) * Folic Acid Am I missing gluten or wheat somewhere?
  11. Kaitlyn Grace is only 3, but she also has a corn allergy, so she would always ask if something has corn in it, cause corn makes her sick. She is very funny about her corn allergy, she'll even ask her GI if she can try just a bit of corn, cause maybe since she is a big girl it won't make her as sick!! With the celiac, we did the same as the corn. Although she doesn't grasp celiac she does grasp flour, so she knows we make her own cookies and pancakes, and she ask before she can have something. We also have made our home mostly gluten-free. Our 13 yo does not mind and our 9yo is extremely special needs, so he does not eat orally. I will agree it is an expense int he begining, but it is a healthy easy way to eat. Making our own cookies and bringing them to play dates has worked, so has using alternatives to cookies, such as fresh fruit and yogurt. We hosted play date last week and did taco salad and it was a hit with the kids!!! No shells but they used lay stacks to scoop it up and loved it!
  12. Hair Loss

    We went into her pedi yesterday and spent a lot of time talking. Kaitlyn Grace is very anemic, so we started a new vitamin. Again I thank all of you, I tend to go worse case scenario with everything!!! We are going to do this vitamin and after 2 weeks do another iron test, if she is still anemic, he said we should delve further.
  13. Hair Loss

    I was more concerned because it just started to happen, just this past weekend. We use the Suave kids 2 in 1 shampoo and johnsons buddies body wash. We also use burts bees, but I ran out last week. Her hair has never fallen out before, maybe I am being over paranoid!!! Since I am still new to this, what do I look for in the bath products? Would they say contain wheat?
  14. You have all been a wealth of information to me. My 3 year old was diagnosed on 4/5/07 and has been gluten and wheat free since 4/6/07. I went the whole 9 yards, new pots pans, dishes silverware, sippy cups, strainers, toaster,etc... I know she is not being cross contaminated. This past Saturday, she woke up and had a clump of hair on her pillow, I didn't think too much of it, now every morning she is waking up with clumps on her pillow and as I brush her hair, it falls out. She has spots of baldness. Has anyone else ever experienced this? We are going into the doctor in the morning, just wanted some ideas before I went in if possible.
  15. For pasta we use DeBoles. We love it, my husband said it is better than the whole wheat pasta we use to use. I have used it for mac and cheese and used it with homemade marinara. We have used the elbow macaroni and the pasta spirals. I used Pamela's Baking mix to make pancakes. I made a batch of silver dollar size and flash froze them then put 4 in a bag. We reheat them for 30 sec in the microwave. I hope these might help you some.
