  1. is craving nz custard squares... but is it worth making my own puff pastry???

  2. I have seen on the internet that you can buy premade puff pastry dough in europe and australia, does anyone know if there is anyone in the USA making this kind of product? its just such an effort to make it yourself... and I dont even know if it would turn out!
  3. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  4. no tummy issues here.... although after going gluten-free i can tell by my tummy in part if i have eaten gluten but isnt severe
  5. great minds think alike
  6. Restarants Just For Celiacs?

    I think its more like a cafe maybe... they do soups and sandwiches and stuff like that I believe... I've only been there a couple of times just for a treat
  7. maybe some gluten free brownies with vanilla icecream
  8. how long have you been gluten-free? did you replace your toaster and any nonstick cookware, wooden spoons, pasta strainers etc.? have you checked labels for hidden gluten such as malt flavoring, caramel coloring etc? some others on here will have some good advice I'm sure
  9. Restarants Just For Celiacs?

    just to let you know it is still around it moved to greenwood and changed its name from kailis to davincis... I've been there 2 or 3 times and haven't heard any fighting... they supply romio's pizza in greenwood with all their gluten-free pizza crusts and gluten-free breads.... yummy
  10. that is exactly what my son's BM's were like until we took him off of gluten. I thought it was too much fiber because it was worse when he would have shredded wheat or raisin bran and less when he would have rice krispies or other less fibery cereal but I think it was because those other cereals have more gluten in them. its like he ate sand or something... like trying to clean wet sand off after going to the beach.. its so impossible! anyway, after awhile on the gluten-free diet he hasn't had poops like that anymore unless he's been glutened... it also made it WAY easier to potty train him once he stopped having those diapers and now he has normal BMs but you would think that he was constipated by the grunting he did at first... I guess he had never used thosE muscles before! just stick with the diet and it should get better
  11. hi, my son has been coughing for a few months now off and on but it seems to be getting more frequent. I went to the dr. on jan. 12 and she asked if asthma runs in the family, I told her it does in my husband's family. anyway I took him in because of an ear ache today and the dr. looked in his ears and said they aren't infected that it is just the pressure and listened to his breathing again. she said she thinks it is asthma and put him on steroids to repair his lungs etc and gave us a script for an inhaler. I had seen something about asthma and celiac disease in the past but not sure what it was... is it a symptom or side effect? or just something related because of the allergy side of things?
  12. my sister came and babysat for us so we could go out and we went to Romios in greenwood... they have a HUGE gluten free menu! you can get... pitabread, garlic bread, cheesebread, breadsticks.... pizza, pasta, soup, salad, gyros, subs etc etc etc.... amazing! when we went they were all out of their gluten free pizza crust (they get all their gluten-free baked goods from Davincis) so I went with the fetuccini alfredo... its better than the "real thing!" it comes with soup or salad and gluten-free garlic bread (it even has the air bubbles in it it was sooooooooo good! definitely will be going back there! my husband and I ate there for less than $30 (before tip... and just water to drink) it was definitely worth it!
  13. we have our whole house gluten-free also it is alot easier and it helped us see that gluten was an issue for more than just me and our middle child, our other 2 children were affected by it also. some labels will say "gluten free" at the bottom of the ingredients list. otherwise lookout for anything saying "wheat" "barley" "rye" or "malt, barley malt, malt extract etc." most people also don't like to get anything with oats or oat flour in it because of cross contamination I'm usually willing to risk it and have only ever gotten a reaction from it once... one thing that my kids love that is very inexpensive is quesadillas made with corn tortillas. they are fast and easy also my kids (don't know if they are just weird) like peanut butter and jelly in corn tortillas I heat the tortillas in the microwave so they are more flexible spread them with peanut butter and jelly and then roll them up... my kids will each eat about 5 or 6 of them at a time. for a special treat sometimes we go to mcdonalds there is a big debate on here about whether or not the McD's fries are safe or not but we haven't had any problems with them and its one of those things that I don't want to take away from my kids. we get them each a double cheeseburger without the bun and the garden salad (grilled chicken has wheat in it there) and the sundaes are safe too... and the yogurt parfaits (without the granola) wendys is another good option for a treat or on the go the chili is safe... and baked potatoes and some of their salads too. I'm sure others have better info on the details of getting started and the issues of Cross contamination from your cookware etc.
  14. were you breastfeeding your daughters? it is totally normal for a fully breastfed baby to only have a BM once a week... unless of course it was like hard pebbles.... on the other hand if they were bottle fed they should be having a BM every day
  15. not sure how long it took really... my youngest started gaining a lb a month but he was still under 2 yrs... my other son gained like 2 shoe sizes within a couple months and my daughter seemed to grow at about the same rate... I didn't really pay attention to their growth other than for my youngest becaues growth was more of an issue there.
