  1. Kelly; you are absolutely on the right track. I just wanted to add that for birthday cakes for kids, Namaste has an absolutely fantastic chocolate cake mix that turns out great every time. It is better than a 'regular' cake. The mix makes 2 8" or 9" layers.

    Wow! Thank you both for your replies. I would be satisfied with a program of some kind for gluten if I knew that down the road there would be 'plugins' for other food issues. Or gluten/dairy and updates later. It seems complicated to me as I am not that computer savvy. We do pretty good at avoiding gluten/cow milk. Corn seems harder to avoid - and getting harder all the time.

    Smumkeemom: Thank you so much! So I'm not crazy. We haven't met anyone in real life that is doing what we are doing - noone has a clue as to what happens to my daughter if we don't stick to this diet. It's just good to know that I am not the only one dealing with this. I am planning to organize mine on the computer but haven't quite figured out how yet - my husband won't touch the computer so it will be for me.
  4. Forgive me if this has been covered before. I have a 3 year old that is gluten/corn/cowmilk intolerant. We have been at this for a while. I would love to throw everything out of the house that she is intolerant to but that hasn't happened yet. It has been challenging to learn to cook for her but we are doing okay. I do all the cooking. I keep food, snacks, etc. in strategic places so that my husband knows what is acceptable for her to have. He doesn't know how to cook for her, and neither do any extended family members. She is only 3, so she is only responsible for her diet as a 3 year old would be. I am concerned that if something happened to me or I was out of commission for a time; that no one could step in and cook for her properly. We live in a remote area - very difficult to find ingredients to cook with; or prepared foods that she can have. I have been putting together a notebook (with plastic sleeves) where I am putting labels from ingredients, convenience foods, etc. I am listing where I purchased the items, the cost, cross-referencing recipes, - generally how to use them. Am I reinventing the wheel? Is there a resource already available that would help me catalogue ingredients and convenience items and provide the necessary information so someone else besides myself could understand what to purchase and how to prepare it? Am I nuts?
