My husband made the original Peanut butter cookie recipe on the jar but substituted gluten-free flours for wheat flour - I WILL get the ones he used and amounts - I hope he remembers! He has also made wonderful ginger cookies -- then lost the recipe he changed -- tried another one that was pretty good but not AS good B)

Anyway -- a great idea of yours! I wish you very well in your writing!

Bean and Rice Burritos

1 cn Refried Beans 16oz.

1 c Brown rice; cooked

1/2 c Onions; frozen, chopped

1/2 c Gr. peppers; frozen, chopped

1/2 c Corn; frozen

Chili powder; dash Cumin; dash Garlic powder; dash

3/4 c Water


10 Corn Tortillas

-----------------------------OPTIONAL TOPPINGS-----------------------------

Lettuce, chopped 1 bn Scallions; chopped 1 Tomato; chopped

Saute the frozen onions and green peppers in a few tablespoons of water in a skillet. Pour refried beans in a skillet . Add the cooked rice, corn, spices and water. Heat 5 to 10 minutes until most of water is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Heat the tortillas quickly (just to soften) in a preheated skillet, a toaster oven, or a microwave. Place a line of bean mixture down the middle of each tortilla, add a teaspoon of salsa and any of the other toppings as desired. Fold up 1/2 inch on each side, tuck in the top edge and roll into a burrito. Serve immediately, topped with additional salsa if desired. The leftover bean mixture can be kept in the refrigerator and reheated in the microwave prior to assembly. The bean mixture can be adapted by changing the kind of beans (try kidney beans) or omitting the corn, or adding your favorite ingredient.

Hashbrown Crust Pizza

I used a pie plate, thinly sliced hashbrowns

Pour some hashbrowns into a lightly Pam'ed pie plate/pizza pan.

Defrost Hashbrowns and press onto the sides of the dish.

I added some garlic powder and oregano and basil to the hashbrowns.

Bake for about 20 min at 350...or until slightly brown and crispy.

Top with pizza sauce, toppings(meat, veggies) and cheese bake for

another 10-12 min. and you now have a great quick pizza!! YUM!!

I made a Ham and pineapple pizza was SOOOO good.

I used regular sauce, but then also added a little bbq sauce (sweet

baby ray's) for some extra kick. It was AWESOME!!!

Green Pepper Steak

2 tbsp. Corn Starch (argo)

4 tbsp Beef Broth (herb-ox boullion cubes)

4 tbsp soy sauce (San J)

1 garlic clove

1/2 to 1tsp. Red Pepper Flakes (McCormick)

1 lb. top sirlon sliced thin.

1/2 C Water

3 tbsp. vegetable oil (divided)

1 green pepper

1 red pepper

In bowl combine 1 tbsp corn starch, 2 tbsp broth, 2 sbsp soy sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes. Add beef and toss to coat (set aside).

In small bowl put water, remaining corn starch, broth and soy sauce.

In wok, heat 1 tbsp. oil. Add peppers and stir fry 1 min. Remove. Add remaining oil and stir fry beef. Return all to pan. Stir in corn starch mixture and boil.

Serve hot over rice. Makes great leftovers and freezes well.

*this dish is spicy, decrease red pepper flakes for less “heat”


I also add a can of diced tomatoes to my recipe. I also increase the beef broth for more sauce. You will need to increase the cornstarch if you increase the broth amount. I put in about a cup of broth and about 3 tbsp corn starch.

This recipe was given to me by my mom. It is one of my favorite meals!!

Hi Kaiti--I have another recipe that I was going to post last night but my house kind of turned into Grand Central Station! Anyway, this is what I call


1 onion

3 green peppers

2 ribs celery

1 lb. good ground beef

1 cup raw Uncle Ben's Converted Rice

1 bottle Ragu Sauteed Onion & Garlic Sauce

1 small pkg. frozen green beans

In a large pot, saute the onion, green pepper and celery in 1/4 cup olive oil until soft. Add ground beef and brown well. Remove any excess grease from pan. Sprinkle in the rice and stir. Add sauce (after pouring in the sauce, add 1/4 cup water to bottle, shake and add), stir well, bring to a boil, then simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Pour in green beans, stir and continue to simmer for another 30 min. or so.

You can play with this and use any veggies you have or another favorite sauce. This is good reheated for lunches, too.

Hamburger, cooked

Ragu Spaghetti sauce or Kraft pizza sauces (Kraft will always indicate gluten)

    • Thanks for all the input guys. Yeah I've had the vit/min panels and all that done and it was all normal. Regardless I've been supplementing with 1,000mcg sublingual B12 daily, 5,000iu sublingual D3 every few days, and since going keto, "ketovitals" which gives me some magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium. Also douse everything in pink sea salt and drink a ton of water. For months now I've tended to get at LEAST 10 hours of sleep per night... Usually. I still at times have terrible insomnia, which is what happened the other night, then had to get up early. Got a total of maybe 5 hours and still feeling it now 2 days later despite sleeping closer to 14 hours a night since. So Ennis, you mentioned about lectins, which I'm now reading about, and interestingly, certain things I don't do well with (usually uncooked veggies, aside from onions) seem to correspond to this. I even do fine with peas, but, I cook those. I'll have to start experimenting. The only part that gets me is that I'm reading grain-fed meats are high in lectins. I've read before that the supposed grain/grass fed difference is BS, and in fact the one thing that has never let me down through all of this is chicken, and I just buy the regular stuff for that. Can anyone confirm or debunk?
    • At 6. Months I was still recuperating for sure. Still had the dh but less of it, still had chronic pain in my abdomen but less of it, still constipated. I was in the stage of eating gluten-free processed foods, which was too much gluten for me, and keeping my symptoms active. In all actuality my C stopped a few months ago. I've been gluten-free for almost 10 years now.
    • 6 months for me stuff was still iffy. I was having bad days good days wtf days. Seemed like ANY change and my body threw a tantrum like a little kid. Yeah sleep patterns lol. I STILL CAN not change them I HAVE to go to bed at a certain time and WAKE at a certain time (9pm-4am)or my cycle goes all out of wack (also take a mid afternoon nap) , the entire day becomes ruined. Meals are the same way. There is this like 30-60mins window if I miss this shot my body goes all kinds of wonky. Mostly it become anemic and my got shuts down and constipation sets in. Always have to have hot fluids or this happens also.....no more cold drinks lol.

      EVEN if your levels are fine, supplementing is something many of us HAVE to do. For me I do not feel "Normal" unless I take my B-vitamins etc. Heck if i miss my magnesium supplement I block up, stop stomach emptying, get cramps, and generally vomit after day 2 if I eat anything. Supplementing is the new "Normal" for me.

      Still to this day food diary shows ups and downs with certain foods, I can not eat many foods, and others HAVE to be prepared in a certain way. heck up until recently I assumed it was a histamine issue or mast cell. Then I found some high histamine foods that should did not bother me go figure, then learned of something called Lectins and my prep methods that work with foods.....corresponds to lowering lectin content.....yeah SO I might have solved that mystery but am experimenting with it still.

      Health wise I am now doing much better and after 4 years found that "Perfect" diet plan for my body (at least for now). Putting on weight,  and trying to body build, still seems to yoyo with ups and days but less now.
    • Sorry to hear you are still suffering so. Have you had a vitamin and mineral panel done?  You should at least have your B12 levels checked. If they are not over 500 then try a subligual B12. That might help a bit.  I take a Stress B supplement but was able to drop the B12 after about 5 years. I know how hard it is to stick to a very regimented schedule as far as sleep goes. I suffer greatly if I don't retire and get up at the same time every day. I am trying to adjust my schedule a bit right now and paying for it. I have been going to sleep at 8pm and getting up at 4am now for a long time which cuts out any real social life.  The last few days I have stayed up till 9:30 or so and gotten up at 5:30 with a headache and generally feeling lousy.  I started getting up very early a few years ago so that I would still get enough sleep even if I have to be somewhere earlier than normal.  Is it possible to adjust your sleep schedule so that if needed you can be somewhere early and not have it mess up your system?  I try to wake at least 3 to 4 hours before I leave the house. It is amazing how much you can get done and how relaxed your beginning day is when you don't have to worry about having to get up early to accomodate an unusually early obligation. Please don't get discouraged. It can take a very long time to heal but for many of us we were ill for years before we finally got diagnosed. I hope you see more progress soon. Be patient with yourself as there are no instant fixes for us, unfortunately.
