  1. Cheryl, I hope that you made out ok with the gluten free buns. I agree with the poster who suggested O'Doughs, I have bought the bread directly from the factory and you save a bit doing it that way. I have also found a new gluten free store in Woodbridge at the intersection of Rutherford and Jane, called Nut N Gluten. They have a wide range of items and they make and sell fresh gluten-free bread Saturday mornings. This bread is good, I mean really good. You could come home with it and make a sandwich. It is like a baguette and I have done a number of different things with it. Save your receipts for the taxman. Lisa
  2. Hi Rideallways, I am not sure where you are, I am in the Toronto area. I go to Buffalo and stock up on gluten free things such as the Betty Crocker cake mixes. I have also found the gluten-free Bisquick mix and I buy Chex Cereal all the time. The cereal is much cheaper then buying cereal here. I have not had to pay duty or taxes on groceries, however there are some limits and I suggest that you look at the govt guidelines for this. Betty Crocker are expensive but save your receipts for the tax credit. I buy 5 or 6 at a time so that I have them on hand and my guests can't tell that there is anything different about the cake. I hope it works out. Lisa
  3. Any Celiac(s) From Canada

    Hi K Dawg, I am here from Brampton. New to this as well. I have found a bread that is absolutely wonderful and it is produced here in Toronto. O'Doughs Flax Bread. They have a website and you can order from the factory. It is soft and fluffy and a decent sized loaf. You could actually make a sandwich with this bread without toasting it. I was diagnosed last fall and it is a challenge. Good luck. L
  4. Any Celiac(s) From Canada

    Hi Krista, I am from Toronto and diagnosed last fall. It is a challenge to say the least. I am finding some really good products though. Last weekend I tried a new bread that my sister in law found for me to try. It is the closest thing that I have found to regular bread. I have found the website and you can order directly from them. The company is O'Doughs. I tried the Flax Bread and it is soft and fluffy and a decent enough size. Some of the mixes are really good from Bob's Red Mill. They deliver to Canada and are really good. I have found Gluten Free Oatmeal from Cream Hill Estates out of Quebec. I can tolerate Oatmeal and it is good to bake with. I have also bought Pamela's All Purpose Baking flour and pancake mix. I did buy it in the States though. A big bag was about 18 dollars US and is enough for alot of products. I am slowly finding out that I can substitute the gluten-free flour mix for regular flour in recipes. If you can find a cooking class for gluten-free cooking that is a good way to get started. I have found that corn pasta is better then the rice pasta. I bought Mrs. Peepers corn pasta and it stays together and is not slimey like rice pasta nor does it become mush when you cook it. I hope that this helps. Lisa
