  1. Funny...I was recently asked to foster a couple of Shibu's. I had to decline though as we have two cats and a black Lab and honestly not enough time for another pet. They are cute dogs though.
  2. Sleep

    I am glad I found this thread. I have been gluten-free truly for the last 4 or 5 months. Within that time my mother in-law was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and so the family has been dealing with that too. On top of the stress from work, mom's cancer and my lovely new diet I am virtually not sleeping. Sometimes literally. I have always been a light sleeper but now it is to the point that every little noise wakes me up. I go days without any real sleep and when I do get sleep it's not for a long enough time period to matter. I am the type of person that requires a good 8 hours of sleep on a daily basis to be fully functional. I haven't gotten than in over 2 months and it is catching up with me. Seems I am constantly sick because I am so run down. I feel like I have been stretched to my limits and I do feel like I want to stick a fork in somebody (mostly myself at this point) and that's without melatonin. Anyway, I finally made an appointment with my doctor and am hoping she has a solution (natural or chemical doesn't matter to me at this point. Hell, I've even considered smoking p** at this point). Anything...I'm desperate as I can feel my marriage suffering from it all. I never thought about tryptophan and didn't know some of the other foods. I will try that and see if it has any effect.
  3. Excellent on the JELL-O. I thought I had seen gluten-free pound cake in the stores but wasn't positive. I will look again and if not, will do the idea that ryebaby suggested. Viola...cute puppy. Akita?
  4. I got this recipe from the Kraft Foods website (kraftfoods.com) and was wondering if it would be possible for me to convert this to gluten-free without too much trouble. Mini JELL-O Trifle Bites 2 cups boiling water 2pkg. (4 serving size each) JELL-O Brand Raspberry Flavor Gelatin 3 slices (3/4 inch thich each) pound cake, cut into 24 cubes 1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened 1 cup powdered sugar 1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping 1 tsp. grated lemon peel The biggest question I have is about the pound cake. Are the tasty ready-made gluten-free pound cakes available in stores? I shop at a pretty gluten-free friendly grocery store here (Wegman's) but the only sweet stuff I've bought are some of Pamela's cookies (very tasty ). I really don't have the time to make a pound cake from scratch so it would be easier if I could just buy one ready-made. Another question I have is about JELLO-O. Is that gluten-free? This looks like a fairly easy and not too time consuming recipe and I'd like to make a few different flavor varieties since it will most likely be the only dessert I will be able to eat at the party. If anybody has any other quick and/or easy recipes that are gluten-free, please feel free to post them or e-mail them to me at racergirl435@sbcglobal.net (just make sure if you e-mail to put something obvious in the subject line so your e-mail doesn't get deleted ). Thanks! Jess
  5. This will be my first gluten-free Thanksgiving and I haven't a clue what to do. My husband's mother also happens to be celiac disease but her "episodes" seem to come and go. Anyway...we're going over to my husband's great aunt's house for Thanksgiving dinner. Being that it is only myself and my mother in-law that are celiac disease, I will be cooking a special dinner for us but I am not sure how to handle it. Plus, it doesn't help that I've never cooked turkey before...like EVER...not even a breast. Does anyone have any gluten-free recipes for cooking turkey breasts? Also, I was going to make candied yams, rice pudding and some plain veggies and maybe some mashed potatoes. I will also have some gluten-free gravy and biscuits. The biggest challenge for me is the turkey so any help y'all can give me with that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Jess
