  1. I know a little bit about cross contamination, but would my utensils, pots pans, etc., be contaminated even if they have been washed?
  2. Thank you for the suggestions! I love the taco idea. I was worried about using store products b/c in doing research on what to make, I found a HUGE list of ingredients that may contain gluten, but they were big long words I would never remember, so rather than print the list and go shopping from there, I thought I'd check in with folks who are experts at dealing with it. Your suggestions are great and I'll be able to create a few meals for them now. One to eat immediately and a few to store in case of a bad day! Thanks and keep the suggestions coming! I am so excited to cook for them. Also, if you have suggestions on "brand" items I could pick up, I'd appreciate it. I have 3 children myself, so reading labels at the grocery store will be hard to do w/ them. I think my local grocer has a small selection of gluten free items. Oh, and can anyone suggest a dessert I could make? Is pudding gluten free? I thought maybe I could make a mock banana creme pie using banana pudding, cool whip and bananas. Thanks again! Jen
  3. Greetings, A dear friend just had a baby and I'd like to ease her burden by making some meals for her and her family as they adjust to life with a new baby at home. Her oldest daughter is recently diagnosed with Celiacs, and I have no idea what is appropriate to make. I know being newly diagnosed, the little girl is quite frustrated with the fact she cannot share meals with family and is having some issues at school with kids noticing she has to have special treatment in the lunch room, etc. so I really want to make a meal she can eat as well. Her mom has said she doesn't mind if I make a meal for them and she would make a separate meal for her daughter, but that doesn't seem very relaxing to a family with a brand new infant. Any help you all could give me would be great. My friend pointed out how to read labels, etc., but I am afraid I would miss something. Could I do something like grilled chicken, a vegetable and rice? What are some other options I have? Thank you so much. Jen
