  1. Check to see if there are sulfites in the cider. I have never had Harpoon cider either because it isn't available by me or it contains sulfites. Since going gluten-free anything with sulfites gets me. Strongbow is great and not sickly sweet.
  2. Thanks!!!! I goggled before posting. Bailey's mobile site didn't have that info!
  3. Is Bailey's Vanilla Cinnamon gluten free? Someone gave me a bottle. I have never had a problem with whiskey, but I am not sure what else is in it. Thanks!
  4. Late response here, but thanks everyone for you thoughts! Endoscopy was today and it sounds like the pathology report is only a formality at this point. Poor kid. But, I appreciate the comments above that maybe all this crap I have and my family has is due to lifelong celiac crap. I definitely happy that my kid may escape some of this. Ugh.
  5. My 6 year old daughter had a "we think the random once-every-few-months-hives are from food allergies but let's test this first" celiac panel that came back "overwhelmingly positive". Her appointment with the GI doctor is tomorrow. Background - I was diagnosed with celiac last year when they were throwing a bunch of tests at me to diagnose a weird symptom (that, it turns out, is not celiac because after over a year being gluten free it hasn't resolved, but that is another issue). So, neither me or my daughter have any symptoms of celiac. NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL. I don't have a copy of her test results yet. I also don't have the results of my original tests (even after numerous attempts to get them). But, I did have a positive result from an endoscopy. Because I am an adult and have food control issues anyway, I took my diagnoses and didn't ask a lot of questions. But now I want to know! I want to know why neither of us have any symptoms! And, more importantly, I want to know if this could possibly be misdignosed and be something else. Part of my questions are because I don't want my daughter to have to deal with the gluten free stuff, I admit that. But the other part is that due to some really bad genetics, my kid is succeptible to a host of crappy diseases in the future. If it at all possible that this is NOT celiac I want to know what it IS. I don't her to spend her life not eating gluten only to find out that whatever is causing these tests to be positive is something else that we could have treated and saved her from future disease. Does this make sense? Anyway, I am just wondering if there is a resource or list of questions to ask the doctor. Or if anyone has any other thoughts or ideas on what to ask? Thanks!
  6. Nuts! My kid won't go to a play date unless there are pistachios.
  7. Squacos - squash tacos. Roasted squash, can black beans, avocado, salsa, corn tortillas. Also great with sweet potatoes. Bowl of quinoa, left over veggies, salsa, avocado Hummus and veggies wrapped on swiss chard wrap Salad! Soup
  8. I bought some organic pumpkin in a can at Whole Foods and it was terrible!!!!!!! We usually love pumpkin pie in this house and we all only had one slice and it is rotting in the fridge (normal recipe). It is Libby's for me for now on.
  9. Conference Travel?

    I have asked the "waiters" at these events for a special meal (lunch and dinners) and have always been given something. This is when I was just vegetarian and not gluten-free. I travel a lot a s bring a ton of food. For breakfast I usually heat up a cereal of quinoa flakes and add freeze dried strawberries. Plus fruit from the grocery and nuts. Lots of soup heated up in the microwave. I always have 1 or 2 gluten-free Go Picnic boxes with me too. Normally don't eat processed foods, but sometimes it is the only notion.
  10. Breadcrumbs

    Thanks. I don't have bread butts (ha!). I haven't had bread for a long time (pre-celiac). Anyone else? Want to make a nut loaf.
  11. Sorry. Gluten free or not, that is just plain RUDE.
  12. Breadcrumbs? What is the best bet?
  13. We have a local meadery. I bought a bottle, it was expensive. And, I guess I just didn't get it. Do you drink like wine? Or make mixed drinks?
  14. THANKS! I have never seen Green's in the stores around here.
