  1. Looking for a good bread recipe that is yeast, egg, gluten, and dairy free. Tall order, I know, but most of the quick bread mixes I've had are okay--looking for something like a plain or corn dinner muffin that isn't too sweet. Anybody have any good ones? (I am also garlic free, black pepper free, orange free, and a few other things but can have most gluten-free flours and dairy free margarine). Yasmine
  2. Thanks, everyone. And no (she says, trying to type around a cat ~LOL~), I didn't bother with a biopsy. I was off wheat for some years before discovering gluten was a problem too, and if I ate enough to test me, I'd hurt like hell and I'm not going to bother with that. Gluten and dairy also inflame my joints really bad and I guess I've reached the end of my fudging because I just can't put myself through the pain even a day or two eating them brings to me. I've been gluten-free off and on for two years, dairy free for most of two years, wheat free for most of ten years. I say most because I've had slip ups and they all ended in me feeling like hell and sick as a dog. Not just stomach, but joints, mind-fog, congestion, asthma attacks. Not fun stuff. Take care and I hope the party is a lot of fun, for you as well as your daughter. Yasmine
  3. Thank you! I found it! Yasmine
  4. Is there a way to view the entire thread without having to click on each individual reply in order to see it? I'm used to V-bulletin systems but this isn't quite the same. I'd like to be able to just read straight from the first post through to the last without doing more than clicking for a new page of replies if the thread is longer. Thanks! Yasmine
  5. Found the forums the other day and decided to join, because I sure can use the mutual support. Let's see, to start with, my 'list': gluten intolerant (tested neg for Celiac on the blood test but sister is positive so it could easily be a false neg, my doctor said), moderate-strong allergies and intolerences (a real mix, some are allergy, some are intolerance, all are nasty): milk in all its forms, oysters, yeast, shrimp, oranges, garlic, onions, peppers, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg. Milder intolerances to: soy, eggs, coffee beans (yeah, I'm still addicted), asparagus, peanuts. Found out last year I have a low thyroid and my adrenals are out of whack, so on meds for those now. I do really well for awhile--I've been struggling with the A/I's for about two years now, but I'll get to feeling really good, be doing well on my diet, and then I get cocky or bored and the next thing I know, I'm rationalizing have that piece of real cheese, or that pie crust or whatnot. But each time, the reactions have gotten worse, so now I've decided I need to de-gluten the entire kitchen (my husband's a Type 1 diabetic, he has no problem with going gluten free with me, he already eats the gluten-free rice pasta I use), and I need to end the recurring 'denial' stage once and for all. So, here I am. My doctor is really urging me to get off all problem foods ASAP and stay off them because she's worried the moderate allergies might kick in worse and man, I really don't want to have to carry around an epi-pen. Nice to meet you all, and looking forward to checking out the forums here. Yasmine
