Chicken and yellow rice tonight:-) Maybe some black beans...

Only draw back is that I have not been able to find an MSG free yellow rice mix (dye free and of course gluten free though :-)

http://www.occasionalomnivore.com/2009/08/16/msg-free-chicken-and-yellow-rice/

does this work for you? :)

Question---if the "yellow" is coming from saffron--can you just use saffron threads and skip all the additives/MSG in any "mixes" you would purchase? I can't do MSG either and avoid all packaged things for this very reason.

Mom and grandma agree that it'd be okay (only would be a problem that long is if it was a dairy product).

Canada? Funny girl. Yep it does that here. :(

It was very nice here today, warm but a bit cloudy.

I made L2T's pasta with her ricotta filling for dinner today. First try was too dry and they split when I tried to fold them. Tried again and it was great. We put a Florentine sauce on them with some artichokes. So good and everyone loved them.

I am going to play around with the recipe using different flours.

She will be so pleased to hear this !! :)

Now, you know I meant no disrespect about the Canada question. I know it can swing wildly--just like in NYS. xxoo

The other day I converted my gnocchi recipe to gluten free and had it with a pesto I made with almonds. I was so happy it turned out I was clapping. :P

Hey thanks! I will try this. The yellow is coming from saffron (and tumeric), this has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. Even with the prepackaged stuff my wife does really well, but given the opportunity to cook fresh I will take do it.

I love saffron, too. Then, you probably would like:

Risotto with saffron

and veal marsala

That's what we're having tonight.

Namaste brand gluten free chocolate cake mix~the food of the Gods!!!! NOM NOM NOM NOM.....Best and only cake mix I will ever use. I've tried many many cake mixes that were horrible. I use to think Betty Crocker's gluten-free cake mix was good, until I tried Namaste!! I made my own gluten-free chocolate butter cream frosting. Both cake and frosting were gluten-free and dairy free.

where do you purchase such food of the gods?!! i, too, have only tried the betty crocker - and thought: surely i can find a recipe that won't cost $5 a box and make it myself... i am braver at mixing flour(s) now :)

i was thinking of trying butternut squash gnocchi (accidentally grew butternut squash lolz) as i have a ton of them (they grew in the compost bin hahahaa they survived the lawnmower :D)

here's a few nights dinners i made:

bratwurst reubens w/homemade sauerkraut (pot cheese & pickles) too hot to really cook that night :)

oooooh! oooooh! i accidentally made 'panko' breadcrumbs!!!! i usually dry out gluten-free bread ends in the oven - low temp - till its pretty well dried out and then i put it in the "bullet" <chopper thingy> well, this time i was impatient and only thawed the bread out - it was still pretty moist - put it in the chopper and it was wanting to stick together and clump so i shook it and i'll be darned if it didn't resemble panko. so, i spread it out on foil and baked it for about 5 min and they turned out GREAT!! that night we made: panko & herb crusted cod with butternut fritters and maple dijon mustard (with rice)

and all that talk of ragout...

venison ragout over spiral pasta w/steamed broccoli i'll be eating that again tonight yummmmmmz

chicken cheese empenadas (sp) w/refried beans & pico de gallo

chicken w/mushroom gravy, mashed taters, roasted brussels sprouts w/shallots & red wine vinegar

now i have a ton of sauerkraut left in the fridger :) i'm thinking pork & crockpot... i still have some pierogies in the freezer.... hmmmm....

I'm not making anything except another apple/huckleberry crisp. The one I made last night is already gone. My kids fought over it like wild animals....LOL

Last night I made sweet and sour pork with rice for dinner. My husband came home and said he didn't feel well and wanted comfort food. He wanted my fried chicken strips (dubbed crack chicken by everyone I know because it's so addictive and good), mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, and apple/huckleberry crisp. So, I made 2 meals last night and the family can eat leftovers!! I did make a second crisp though, it's in the oven.......

My Venice Bakery crusts finally arrived!!! Okay okay, so I didn't actually order them until last weekend. They shipped Monday and arrived today so it wasn't that awful a wait but I thought I just may die wanting pizza.

So, we only got the sample pack of three 5 inch crusts to try them until we were sure we wanted to order more. For the first time in 10 months I had pizza that had crust with the an amazing pizza crust texture. The taste was also great. We simply made them into pepperoni pizzas since they were so tiny but we plan on ordering more right away.

We are having a french leek pie in the new crust I bought from Whole Foods, with a green mixed salad, and baked apples stuffed with dates and brown sugar.

    • First, you're not really "young" to be diagnosed. Most people are diagnosed when they're older but it isn't because they didn't have it when they were young. It's because until recently people were being told they have IBS and everything else under the sun before they were finally told they have Celiac. My 4 year old has it. His doctor said they're seeing it in younger people now more than ever because it's really easy to test for it. I'm 30 and I was diagnosed right after I turned 29.  I was like you. My symptoms weren't that bad. But I know they would have gotten much worse over time. It terrified me that I had an autoimmune disorder. I have anxiety anyway, and once I knew that I had celiac I banned gluten from my life. I'm not exaggerating. I threw out Cosmetics, lotions, soaps, shampoo, everything. I don't allow it in my house. Sure, I could have said "Ah screw it" and kept eating it, but what it was doing to me internally was what mattered. It will destroy your body. It can cause you to develop other AI diseases - much more serious and debilitating ones than Celiac. It can cause cancer. It's not something to mess with.  I know it's overwhelming. Believe me, we all do. It's a huge learning curve. But really, there's nothing I can't eat. I have learned to figure it out. I can look at a recipe and make it gluten free very easily. Want a burger? Gluten free bun. Pizza? Got that too. There are so many options and resources. Eating out is a trick and that's the one thing I do miss the convenience of, but I'm healthier than ever because I don't eat take-out all the time. You can go to websites like findmeglutenfree.com and find tons of restaurants that are reviewed by people with Celiac's disease.  So, yeah, it's worth it. You have this. It isn't going away. And you can manage. You'll be fine. You'll be pissed off and overwhelmed and sad about it. But no sense in dwelling on the "poor me I can't have gluten" crap. You have an AI disorder that you have 100% control over. You don't eat gluten and you'll be ok. You're not like my sister who has lupus and never knows when she'll have a flare. You'll never be like my cousin who has RA and has to rely on medicines with nasty side effects just to function. But you keep eating gluten and you may end up like them because you'll be in store for another AI disorder.  It's poison to your body. Get rid of it. It's worth it.

    • I'm hoping to donate to celiac research this year.  Does anyone have recommendations as to where to donate?  Celiac Disease Foundation?  Celiac research at a hospital or university? Thanks!
    • Thank you so much for your responses!! It is so hard because there are so many unknowns, inconclusive results, and lots of waiting!! I didn't realize it was so difficult to even get the tests to begin with. Thank you both SO much. I feel much better & am more comfortable going into my doctors appointment.
