  1. A friend of mine recently made this for me and then I made it myself to be sure I could duplicate it. My friend bought me the recommended flour mix, so I would start with using that the first time you make it to ensure you get the right texture. It's the best yet in my opinion! Here is the link to the step by step instructions: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2010/06/01/what-do-readers-say-about-our-gluten-free-pizza-crust-%E2%80%9Camazing%E2%80%9D/ I know you will love it!

  2. Hi Everyone, I thought I would post this to save others the time of emailing the company. WILTON: Good Afternoon, Thank you for getting back to us. Unfortunately, we do not get information on the different lines that the items are run on. We do follow proper cleaning procedures though, and so if any lines need to be switched over, they are cleaned. With them being in the same facility there is the chance of airborne contamination. I apologize for this inconvenience. We appreciate your business. Have a great day! ME: Thanks! Do you know if they are processed on the same lines as gluten products or separately? WILTON: Hi Emily! Thank you for contacting Wilton! The 710-738 doe not contain gluten, but there is gluten present in the manufacturing plant. The 710-756 does not contain gluten, but there is gluten present in the manufacturing plant. Happy Decorating! ME: Rosemary, Thank you for your quick response! Here are the products I was looking at: http://www.michaels.com/art/online/displayProductPage?productNum=sc0801 http://www.michaels.com/art/online/displayProductPage?productNum=bk0293 Thanks for your help!

  3. I'M Healthy Now, Should I Still See A Gi Doctor Every Year?

    Thank you to everyone who responded. This is very helpful!
  4. Hi everyone, I'm due on April 8th and of course don't know if my daughter will have Celiac Disease or not. Of course I'm not eating gluten now, and I was told not to feed her gluten until she is at least a year old in hopes of preventing celiac disease. Do any of you have any additional advice? Thanks! Emily
  5. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has found a good eye moisturizer that is gluten-free. One that can be used under the eyes for puffiness and/or over the eyelids. I used to use a make-up base coat sort of thing for putting under eye shadow from Clinique, but now they don't carry it anymore and I've got nothing. Any suggestions would be most appreciated! Thanks, Emily
  6. Hi everyone, I was told at one point that I should see a GI doctor once a year as a "check-up" to make sure everything is going okay. Do any of you do this? I have just been having my regular doctor do a blood test annually to make sure my antibody levels are in the normal range. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks, Emily
  7. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  8. Hi Everyone, My mom is going to buy me a bread machine for my birthday (on Sunday) and wants to know which one to get me. Any advice or opinions on bread machines would be much appreciated! We are currently trying to decide between the Zojinushi, Breadman (TR2700) and the Cuisinart (BNKR-200PC). Thanks in advance for sharing your opinions and experiences! Emily
  9. Hi everyone, I just contacted Hard Times Cafe and they said their chili is gluten free. Here is the response: Sent: Wednesday, September 09, 2009 1:29 PM <<Hi Emily - Yes the chilies are gluten free but you would not want to have the chili on the spaghetti. The chili on Fritos would be OK. Unfortunately our corn bread is made with wheat flour so it is defiantly NOT gluten free. We are in the process of putting together a nutrition page and hope to have it on the website later this year.>> -- Then I asked if I should worry about cross contamination and here is the response: <<The only cross contamination concerns are with the fries and onion rings. The onion rings are made with a flour batter. Bits of the flour remain in the hot oil when the rings are cooked. It's the same hot oil we cook our fries in so there's probably some cross contamination there. So I wouldn't recommend ordering the fries.>> If you have had an experience there, I'd love to hear about it! I have yet to go since being diagnosed. Thanks, Emily
  10. Hi, I waited two years after going gluten free before getting pregnant. My periods are pretty regular (25-28 days) with the occasional really long cycle (35-42 days). I did a blood test to ensure my antibodies were in the normal range first. Once they were, the doctor said I should be just fine. We got pregnant on the second cycle of trying. Best of luck!
  11. Here is there response on 1/28/09: Dear Ms. Wolfer: Thank you for inquiring about the nutritional information of our Comstock product. Most of our packages are clearly labeled with allergen statement; please refer to this or the detailed ingredient statement for gluten-containing ingredients. Our Comstock & Wilderness pie fillings and other plain vegetables are gluten free. Most other products, such as those containing sauces or pasta should be clarified before each use. We hope this information will be of assistance to you. We value you as a customer and appreciate your time and concern. Sincerely, Consumer Relations Birds Eye Foods
  12. Flours?

    I have been pretty successful with swapping in the following flour mix: Bette Hagman
  13. That really bugs me too! To me it's like writing, "Processed in a facility that also processes rat poisoning. If you're sensitive, then you may get sick." I have gotten sick before after eating something labeled as "processed in a facility that also processes wheat" and won't do it again. Best, Emily
  14. I just wanted to share my experiences of eating out lately without getting sick. Chipotle: I went to Chipotle and had their chicken burrito bowl with guacamole and chips. I tried to ask the server to change her gloves as others have recommended, but she couldn't understand me (language gap) and everything still turned out great! I didn't get sick and have gone back again since (I don't ask about the gloves - most everything is scooped out with serving spoons anyway). Everything is gluten free except the tortillas and the hot salsa. Red Robin: This was a wonderful experience because I could actually get a burger and fries! They have a gluten free menu that the server will bring to you if you ask for it. They offer burgers with "lettuce buns" on their regular menu too so you don't feel crazy ordering it and it is SO nice to eat a burger with your hands again! Chili's: They have a gluten free menu. I wasn't too excited about what I ordered, but I was very excited that I was able to order and not get sick! It is so liberating to be able to eat out once and awhile! Best, Emily
  15. Does anyone know if this is gluten free? I'm making sangria tonight and wanted to check it out beforehand. I couldn't find anything on the web. Thanks in advance! Emily
