  1. And if you were talking about Salsa Dancing then... Maybe try the Tango.
  2. What about Guacamole? You can leave tomatoes out and add just the right amount of spice/flavor to suite your taste.
  3. Sometimes the food is not the issue but how you cooked it. If you grilled them on a grill or used utensils that gluten foods were also cooked on you may get a gluten reaction.
  4. Oats Confusion

    I eat gluten-free oatmeal (Bob's Redmill gluten-free Old Fashioned Oats (slow cook kind)) 2 or 3 times a week. I was not able to eat this without digestive issues for about 6 months after going gluten-free. I guess that I am not a sensitive guy.
  5. Tax Break For Celiac, Really?

    I am not giving tax advice here. If you are not well versed in taxes in the USA then I suggest seeking advice from a tax professional. If you file your own taxes utilizing deductions then you should understand the IRS Publication that I believe covers this topic. I believe that IRS Pub 502 covers this and it should be read thoroughly. There is no short reply that could be given here that everyone can follow (blame it on the IRS). Basically, you should be able to deduct the differential between a gluten-free food product and a similar regular gluten laden food product as long as the aggregate amount of that differential exceeds 7.5% of your AGI using Schedule A. And no, in your example meat would not be part of this. Further note, for tax year 2012 the deduction threshold goes up to 10% of your AGI (from 7.5%) as result of the new (Obama) health care reform. IRS Topic 502 Med and Dental Exp IRS Publication 502 Good luck!
  6. Red Heads

    You Gingers have all kinds of added issues (said laughingly).
  7. Here is an interesting read on the subject of gluten in wine. The Problem of Gluten in Wine I suggest reading the replies to this blog also. For disclosure purposes, I drink wine and will continue to do so. EDIT (added): It is my opinion that wine is safe and I am not suggesting that anyone should be concerned about gluten in wine. It is just interesting to learn...
  8. For older kids, my suggestion is a Flourless Chocolate Cake or Brownie served warm with vanillaice-cream and a raspberry sauce drizzled over it. I saw a recipe that I have not made from Whole Foods: http://www.wholefood...com/recipes/753 I recently went to the Bonefish Grill and had a (gluten-free) Flourless Macadamia Nut Brownie and itwas delicious.
  9. My First Celiac Kiss :(

    mamaw, The desert was not my primary interest.
  10. My First Celiac Kiss :(

    Hi, The best advice is... Date someone that also has celiac disease and your problems are solved. I have also had issues with dating related to eating out and requesting that my date brushes her teeth before kissing. And I have never dated anyone that has celiac disease so I'm not sure if it would make such a difference but it sure would make life easier in so many ways. If you like gluten-free tiramisu or at least if you are willing to make it with someone then I'm your next date! I have been dreaming about gluten-free tiramisu ever since someone here got my thoughts on trying some.
  11. The only time I threw up from gluten was after many years of cumulative damage to my digestive system just prior to going gluten-free. If you are vomiting, it sounds like you have to make some dramatic changes to your diet.
  12. I can say that I have not craved gluten foods except beer. One day I will find a tasty gluten-free beer... And there is not a single gluten-free beer on the market today tastes good so no recommendations needed.
  13. Your dishes look and sound great! I hope you continue being passionate about your food. Let me know if you need an extra gluten-free eater (me) to try out some of your meals!
