  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Quaker has said that none of their products can be considered gluten free because of the way they are stored/processed. I called them after I got horribly sick from their plain rice cakes. They said there is too much potential for cross-contamination. I steer clear of anything from them...having said that I know people on this forum have been fine with the rice cakes and not reacted to them.
  3. Anxiety?

    I started having what I would call mild anxiety issues when I starting getting sick. They have resolved since I have been off gluten.
  4. What we need is some kind of a cap put on the insurance compaines, and we need doctors to not run needless tests, which also brings up the cost of health care.
  5. Whole Foods/houston, Tx

    I like the WF gluten-free Bakehouse ginger molasses cookies. They are chewy...and seem like regular cookies. The chocolate chips ones are good too. I get waffles there as they are not in my regular grocery store. I also get my Tinky and Ancient harvest pasta. They also have meringue cookies which are good.
  6. What Has Happened To The Forum Layout ?

    scratch that- I found them

    My view new post button is gone too. I can't find the logout button either.
  8. Airport Security

    I recently went on an overseas flight and had a couple of stops so I brought a bunch of food bcause I was paranoid. Most of it was just snacks...but I did bring a tuperware of frozen pasta with tomato sauce that I was worried about- but nobody even asked about it.
  9. Tinkyada Pasta

    I have tried it- not so great....although I love their pasta for everything else. I switched to the Thai Kitchen rice noodles in soup. They seem to do a bit better and they are ok if I freeze the soup and the thaw it.
  10. I really like the one from Bette Hagman in Fast and Healthy.
  11. Kenmore Commercial!

    I saw it too last night. I can't even remember what I was watching- but I am not sure it was a major network. The first time I saw it I thought I was seeing things- a little too much gluten-free food on the brain...and then I saw it a second time!
  12. I use some of the MAC lipglosses. There are some lipsticks by them that are not ok though.
  13. I got fluid filled blisters on my elbows and knees- that is how I got diagnosed with Dermatitis Herpetiformis by skin biopsy. Mine were pretty classic and in a common location for DH. I found that my elbows would be really itchy right before the blisters appeared. I also sometimes get little ones on the sides of my fingers.
  14. London, England

    I just got back today from Scotland and both Tesco and Sainsbury had a lot of gluten-free foods available. They do have different standards in terms of the amount allowed- 200ppm- and I wasn't sure how I would do. I did react pretty badly to some of it- so I guess you just have to see how you do in terms of sensitivity. The choice of cereals wasn't great- but they have tons of breads/english muffins and cookies etc.
  15. Pizza Pizza Toronto

    I was back home in Toronto last week and tried it- it was pretty good! They put the crust on a separate pan to cook it. The only thing is that I don't think they used separate slicers- so be careful about that. I didn't have any issue with it. It was nice to have "real" pizza with the rest of my family.
