  1. Does anyone have a gluten-free sponge cake recipe? My family has an Italian Rum Cake recipe, but unfortunately it is not gluten-free and making it so would ruin the entire cake.
  2. I Need Help!

    I don't stock up on products unless I've bought them before and are actually edible. I agree that the Ener-g tapioca break is pretty gross. I only bought it once because I was out of bread and it was on sale. I only ate it because it seemed like a waste to throw away an entire loaf of bread. I've only been able to find one brand of bread that you can actually eat straight, but it's from a local company. This company has a gluten-free raisin bread and it is pretty good.
  3. I Need Help!

    I've been gluten-free for about a year and half, after developing a life threatening allergy to gluten. I go into anaphaylaxis when I eat even the smallest bit. I've been able to manage up until now and cope pretty well, but I'm having problems now. I'm in college and am developing unhealthy eating habits, out of convience and lack of time. Does anybody have any tips on how to create meals that don't take much time, don't need to be refrigerated and are actually healthy? I hope these don't sound like weird questions to ask. Also, I'm unsure about how to tell my friends about this allergy or why I am so insistent at restaurants about the ingredients of foods and about cross contamination. I've only told my closest friends and people who need to know about my allergy in case I get sick, but some of them freak out and then act really weird about it. Any ideas? I'm so glad that I found this discussion board. Nobody seems to understand how difficult it actually is to live gluten free. They just tell me, it can't be that hard, get over it.
  4. I'm so glad that I discovered your posting. I shop at Safeway and this list will make my life so much easier. I'll still read labels though just in case. My local safeway has only ever been helpful and will even order in special produts if you request them.
  5. These products are not available in my local costco. Does anyone think that they'd be available at Costco.com? Gluten-free products are a hit and miss here. The ones that are available on a regular basis don't taste very good either.
