  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Bread Cups

    Yes - really thin - like thin pie crust would be. I don't particularly like the Chebe breadsticks. I just use the mix for pizza dough or these "cups." One secret I found is that you have to work with it a little more than regular dough. My mama always told me not to "overwork" my dough, but it's hard to do that with Chebe. I roll it out, ball it up and roll it out again. You'll notice when it starts loosening up and acting like regular dough. I don't know why they would have stayed the same size though? My chebe always puffs up to about twice the original size. Maybe try working with it some more.
  3. Forgive me if I have posted this already: I take bread dough - I like to use Chebe garlic breadstick mix or Pamela's Biscuit Mix, but anything will do - roll it out and cut cirlces with a biscuit cutter, lay the circles into mini muffin tins and bake on medium heat for about 15 minutes. You can use these for any meal of the day. Some examples: For breakfast - fill with scrambled eggs, cheese, sausage, onions, peppers, whatever... For lunch - (This is hubby's favorite) fill with chicken or tuna salad For dinner - fill with sloppy joe meat or taco meat or BBQ chicken The possiblities are endless. These are also just fun fingerfoods and my neices love them as well - they like to fill with pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni. Hope someone enjoys this as much as we do!
  4. I will get to the bottom of this. ------------------------------ And yes - I do have symptoms - severe ones - when I eat gluten. I realize that some people don't, but I do and that's a pretty good indication to me - if I don't get sick after eating something then I assume it's safe.
  5. I think Wal-Mart is going to do the "Gluten Free" labeling.
  6. *Ask them if they would perfet to drink very fresh new battery acid, or older somewhat used battery acid.* LOL!!! Thanks guys for the response to this post. I was kinda thinkin it was a little silly to think you could eat a "younger version" of wheat and that be ok. I mean - it's still freakin wheat! Anyways! Tiffany, how did you get so smart?
  7. I've seen the list of "safe" brands on here (I think it's Kaiti who posted?) but I was wondering what that meant. Ok, for example, if a product from one of those companies contains maltodextrin, am I safe in assuming that's from a gluten-free source?? Please clarify. I'm still confused.
  8. Brain Fog

    This is me totally. I've ran a stoplight, almost been in countless accidents, zoned out in meetings at work...you name it. The "brain fog" was the FIRST symptom I had that led me to find out about Celiac. I remember I had a test in one of my college classes and (I've always been very studious, but) I could NOT concentrate to study. I would try to read and instead I would just be zoning out while staring at the book. After a few weeks of that, I was like OK...SOMETHING is majorly wrong here. I'm still having problems with this as well as short-term memory problems and an inability to concentrate. It gets worse when I've been glutened, but I have it a little bit all the time.
  9. I Need Snack Ideas.

    ...anything with peanut butter is great. I understand about the carrot sticks. I never can get full eating raw veggies! I'm addicted to Seneca Granny Smith Apple Chips right now - they're like potato chips, but not. They're actually not even much healthier than potato chips, but I trick myself into believing that if it's from an apple it has to be a little bit healthy, right?! They also have sweet potato chips that I have in my desk at work, but haven't tried yet. I really recommend peanut butter for snacks tho b/c all the protein helps keep you full longer than carb-heavy foods do. You can carry a little tupperware dish of the peanut butter and have gluten-free crackers, celery, fruit, etc to eat it with.
  10. Tums

    FYI - Just got some Multi-Symptom Rolaids - helps with gas too! SO GREAT!!! I'm going to use these from now on.
  11. I actually had this same question. The Mexican Tortilleria here uses the Maseca corn flour to make fresh tortillas with and we eat those quite often. I've never gotten sick from it, so I'm assuming it's safe - And really yummy! I'd like a recipe for tamales if you can share??? My hubby has been bugging me for MONTHS to make him some, but I'm a little nervous b/c I don't know all the "secrets." HTH
  12. celiac3270, you're so awesome to do this. I know it must get tiring, but could I pretty please have a copy as well? Email is kristen_varney@yahoo.com Thanks SOOOOOOO much!! MWAH! (That's a kiss!)
  13. I've been wondering about sprouts for awhile, and a post from em2005 about supplements reminded me that I should ask this here b/c it might benefit other people as well. This is a quote that a company sent her: "...All the grasses and sprouts in greens+ are harvested at a tender age before any gluten is formed. You can rest assured the product contains absolutely no gluten..." So my question is about all these sprouted grain breads that are getting pretty big now. The man and his wife who own our health food store say they heard these are ok for people with Celiac b/c they don't contain gluten since they are picked so young. But I don't know, I mean we're talking WHEAT here. I just can't imagine eating BREAD with everything in it that I'm not supposed to have. There's like 5 different grains in there. I would love to eat it b/c I've had it before and it's quite good. I just can't bring myself to try it now that I have developed Celiac. Anyone know anything about this?
  14. Gf-friendly Restaurants In Atlanta

    We've eaten at several places in Buckhead and I haven't had any problem - but I usually get salads when I go out. Bah! I'm not a lot of help.
  15. Still Sick; Korean Market?

    For the first six months of our marriage, hubby and I lived on beans and rice. Wal-Mart has pinto beans for $.50 a can - cook those on low with a piece of bacon for an hour and it tastes like my mom's beans that she would slow cook all day long! But it gets old...FAST. I think that was my motivation to learn to get creative with my shopping/cooking. Now we only have beans and rice when we want 'em! There are other options.
