  1. I like Kitchen Basics for stock. I use Watkins chicken and beef soup and gravy bases in place of bouillon. The Watkins chicken, beef and cream soup and gravy bases are gluten-free. The others are not.
  2. If you're looking for natural remedies, Nature's Way Sambucus (black elderberry extract), Umcka and Nutribiotics' grapefruit seed extract are staples in our home during cold and flu season. Also, we up our intake of Vitamin C, D3 and L-Lysine. Hyland's Flu Care is also good, but I don't think it's lactose-free. And Sinupret is really good for upper resp. illness. We also use several OTC meds if the need arises, but we try to treat it naturally first.
  3. I agree with above. You could have issues with the other but if you had the positive blood test, I'd say that means your body needs to be off gluten, even if you have issues with the other. It it were me, I'd get off gluten as soon as I had the biopsy and then deal with the other potential issue.
  4. I didn't know this! Why in the world ...???? Thanks for the heads up. I'm not close to Canada, but I need to go back and specify U.S. Lea & Perrins on my recipes!
  5. The nearest Whole Foods is several hours away, so I stock up when I go. Thanks!
  6. Recreating recipes to be gluten-free takes a lot of trial and error, usually. Flours that work for one may not work for another recipe, if you under mix or overmix, depending on the ingredients and recipe type, it can be a disater. Thankfully, it gets easier and easier! A lot of good suggestions on here. Pamela's chocolate chip cookie mix is the best mix for chocolate chip cookies, in my opinion, if you go that route. Betty Crocker isn't bad, but it's pretty grainy.
  7. We don't have that brand in our stores. I'll have to keep my eye out when we travel.
  8. Short grain rice is a good sub, esp. brown rice. I like to use buckwheat groats for my barley sub in stews.
  9. Try using Pamela's bread mix and flour blend, you'll have to adapt it some but it works nicely.
  10. At the very minimum, they should be warmed. If you warm it up in the microwave between some paper towels (unless you have a tortilla warmer, use that) for several seconds, it will make it soft enough to roll without breaking. It will most likely break, however, when she picks it up to eat it. You may want to wrap it in wax paper after rolling it because of this, or serve with a fork. The best thing to do with corn tortillas is heat them in oil first. But, that would be too messy to do with a burrito in mind. Greasy fingers! I haven't been real fond of the gluten-free "flour" tortillas I've tried, but I have liked some of the wraps I've made. I believe Living Without had the best I've tried. That may be your best bet for a burrito.
  11. Feeling Discouraged

    We use Bragg's Liquid Aminos in place of soy sauce. It's great! But, if you are sensitive to soy then that would also be a problem.
  12. Feeling Discouraged

    Not sure about the Old El Paso brand of enchilada sauce, I make my own now and it's so much better than anything out of a can. Very easy, too. My recipe is below. Hope you feel better soon! http://mamameglutenfree.blogspot.com/2011/01/enchilada-sauce.html
  13. I'll have to try this for the rolls in the muffin tin! Thanks!
  14. Thanks! I probably will, unless I hear something different today. I hesitate to eat Hershey's, but I do let them have the regular kisses. I read that the mint truffle kisses were okay, and found a gluten-free recipe using them, but like I said above, haven't been able to find anything about the Irish creme.
