Great idea. Hope all goes well for you. Unfortunately, most of my recipes are modified from other cookbooks or off this site, so I'd be afraid to share them for fear of plagiarizing. This is an exception:

My crew loves carrots and ranch dressing. Since we have so many allergies, it is hard to find an appropriate store-bought version. We just make our own.

Start with:

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup buttermilk

Stir to mix well until there are no lumps.

Season to taste with the following spices. Start with 1/2 teaspoon each and adjust to your family's preferences.

Basic Ranch:

Salt

Pepper

Onion

Garlic

Parsley

You can also add parmesan cheese or other items to make a dressing similar to many available in grocery stores.

Be certain that you mix it well and refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving to allow the flavors to mix. It keeps well and is really good for you.

For those who are dairy sensitive, a French style dressing can be made as follows:

Start by placing 1/4 cup white vinegar into a bowl. Add 1/4 tsp each paprika and salt. While whisking, add 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil. Continue whisking while you add confectioner's sugar until it is the consistency you prefer.

This recipe can be adjusted to taste (some prefer less vinegar, an alternate vinegar such as red wine style, or more color). You can also use this as a basic recipe to create poppy seed dressings, etc.

Thanks for your comments to date. The cook book will be for Kids but depending on the kids age will need adult involvement.

Okay, so I was having a rough night. I woke up in the middle of the night and realized that I had goofed on the dressing recipes.

Don't use as much salt and pepper. A half tsp is too much. Sprinkle in and adjust to taste.

In the French style, I forgot to put in the tomato sauce. I only use a couple of tablespoons since my family is not really into the tomato flavor but likes the color.

Sometimes it is tough to give out "recipes" when you eyeball everything you cook. I don't think I have measured anything other than for baking in a couple of decades or more.

I don't know if this will help, but here is a recipe. This is one recipe where I eyeball and use my families tastes vs measurements.

gluten-free Chicken Parmesian:

About 2 c gluten-free dried bread crumbs- I make my own from scraps of leftover bread or you can buy them.

Add to the bread crumbs-1/3-1/2 c Kraft Parmesian cheese. (You could probably use fresh, but my kids love the green can, so why go to the extra work or expense)

Add 1/2 t (depending on taste) each garlic powder, onion powder, oregeno or any other spice that you like.

Melt 1/2 c margarine or butter

Flatten the chicken breasts (this should use about 4, but I cut mine in half and flatten to speed up cooking time)

Spray 9X13 pan with gluten-free cooking spray

Dip chicken in butter then breadcrumb mixture, place in pan. Repeat until all chicken is done. Cook at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes depending on sized.

Remove from oven. Cover cooked chicken with bottled gluten-free Spagetti sauce, mozzerella cheese and additional parmesian. Return to oven for about 10-12 min or until sauce is hot and cheese is melted.

Serve with salad or gluten-free pasta if you like.

Here are 2 favorites!

CARROT CAKE (this is great for the whole family, it really tastes like regular cake!)

I can't remember exactly how long I had to bake it though. If you try it, you'll have to check every 10 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle is clean.

2 cups rice flour

2 cups sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ginger

3 cups shredded carrot

3/4 cup cooking oil

3/4 cup vanilla yoghurt

5 eggs

Combine dry ingredeints and mix well. Add oil, yoghurt, and eggs and mix on high for at least 5 minutes (my theory is that if you mix it longer, the texture improves). Add carrot, mix again until well combined. Pour into a greased rectangular baking pan and bake on 350 for 35 minutes, then reduce heat to 300 and bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. You may need to put foil over the cake when you turn the oven down to avoid the edges getting too brown.

Frost cake with CREAM CHEESE FROSTING (frosting is also really good spread on apple slices for a sweet snack instead of cookies etc.)

6 ounces cream cheese

1/2 cup butter

2 tsp. vanilla

3 to 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

beat together cream cheese and butter, add vanilla and sugar one cup at a time until desired sweetness is reached (you can get away with less that 3 cups if you don't mind it less sweet).

Another favorite for quick lunches:

CORN DOG WRAPS

gluten-free corn tortillas

cheddar cheese, sliced thin or grated

gluten-free hot dogs (we like oscar meyer cheese dogs)

place cheese slices on corn tortillas, and place hot dog on tortilla, about an inch from the edge. Nuke the whole thing in the microwave for 40 seconds, then roll the hot dog up in the cheesy tortilla. Serve with mustard and/or ketsup, or with gluten-free salsa if your kid is adventurous.

Oh here is another:

Corn tortilla pizza's:

Either fry or bake corn tortilla until crisp. Put pizza sauce or doctored tomatoe sauce on it, mozzerella cheese, and pepperonni. Or whatever toppings your child likes. It is more like an Italian chalupa than pizza, but my 4 year old liked them the 1st couple times I made them.

You can also do a traditional like chalupa

Fry or bake tortilla until crisp. Frying tastes better, baking is better for you. Spread refried beans, cheddar cheese, left over meat of your choice(the meat should be under the cheese). We really like chicken. I put a little chili powder, cumin, garlic, and onion powder on top of the beans. Bake in the oven until cheese is melted. Top with salsa, black olives, shredded lettuce,tomatoes, sour cream, etc.

The possibiltities are endless. You can leave the beans off, some kids don't like them. For the adults or braver kids I use pepper jack cheese or a mix of the two cheeses. This is one of those recipes that can be customized for each member of the family.

Hi I am new to this and am always looking for good tasting brands of gluten-free products. Tonight we tried to make chicken quesedillas (which we usually love with flour tortillas) with Mission white corn tortillas. Well to say they did not go over well in my house tonight would be an understatement. Do all corn tortillas taste the same and we are just not used to the new gluten-free taste or can anyone suggest a brand name and what kind of store or where on line to buy it.

Thanks,

Roo

There is a big difference between flour and corn. Some corn tortillas are better than others, but if your kids are used to quesidias with flour it will be a shock to their taste buds to go to corn tortillas. Mission isn't a bad brand. I like Pepito better and if you are further south you can find even better. My parents live in Texas and the have some great local brands. I found some really good ones in the Goya section, but I don't remember their name. I haven't found a corn tortilla that wasn't gluten-free.

Hope this helps

Personally I have found that it takes some time to adjust to the differences in taste of things. I did the same sort of thing as you in the beginning. I thought OH GREAT I'll just use CORN!! They tasted like crud!! However, over time I have adjusted and I love using them when I make mexican food. I LOVE them now. I use the Mission brand white corn.

This seems to be true for many products for me. Just takes time for the taste buds to adjust.

    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,  
    • after going gluten-free I felt great! but lately I have been feeling bad. the gluten symptoms are still gone, but now I am weak, foggy,  any ideas? doc did a full blood work up, all came back normal
