I make mine with dried rosemary tucked in, minced garlic on top, and generously sprinkled salt. (And olive oil.)

They are wonderful. I made mine tonight with pork tenderloin. Amazing.

Sounds delicious! I love how the outside edges become so crispy and the centres remain tender. Mmmm....

I'm still working with the flash frozen haddock fillets that Sprouts has for sale for $3.97 per pound, regular 9.00.

I defrosted a pound and rinsed them and cut them into serving pieces. On a dinner plate I placed about 1/2 cup of gluten free Bisquick and seasoned it with salt, pepper and paprika. I coated the fish pieces with the flour mixture flipping the pieces over several times and tapping the mixture into each piece.

In a frying pan I placed a bit of oil and about 2 TBSP gluten and dairy free Smart Balance margarine. Once the fat was hot I carefully placed the fish and cooked on each side until golden and crispy and the fish flaked. It took about 4 - 4 1/2 minutes per side.

I peeled some asparagus and dropped them into some simmering salted water for a couple of minutes. Had a slice of buttered Katz gluten free bread and it was a delicious and safe meal. Brought the rest to work today for lunch.

I plan to go back and buy 10 more pounds of fish from Sprouts so I can have some yummy, easy to meals to last me through a couple of upcoming surgeries.

They can be made a couple of different ways but I suspect in this case they are like potato pancakes (i.e. grated, mixed with egg or whatever for binding and seasoning then fried). They are very good!

Glad I asked as it would make quite a difference to use too much. Thanks a lot!

Had my "go to" meal last night because we got in late from a doctor's appointment. Had sardines packed in mustard sauce mushed up on toasted Udi bread with thinly sliced tomatoes and lots of salt and pepper. Had some pickles and corn totilla chips - Santitos I think. I know that alot of people don't like sardines, but I grew up eating them and like them. We never had the flavored kind back then, but these are good.

I love sardines, too...and I also grew up eating them.

Tonight my 12-year old granddaughter is spending the night with me and we're having pork and sauerkraut (it's in my crockpot), mashed potatoes and applesauce. She loves all of it and has for years.

No idea what to make for dinner tonight yet. Maybe chili bake topped with cornbread. But last night I made chicken and dumplings using the gluten-free bisquick. It was super tasty and even better for leftovers for lunch today. I didn't really follow any recipe and added cut up red potatoes and carrots to add a veggie component to it.

Let's see-- Thurs I had Caesar's gluten-free Lasagne, yesterday was Amy's gluten-free mac & cheese, today was Thai Kitchen Pad Thai... yes, there is a theme going here... my hubby had oral surgery (4 teeth taken out) on Thursday, so until he heals, it's easy meals all around at our house. We already have more than enough to deal with here!!

Leftovers tonight! :D :D :D

and Lemon Lover's Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream Frosting. I've been wanting to make these for months and today my granddaughter and I did. They are so yummy! I only had one lemon so saved 1 tsp. of grated lemon rind for the frosting and dumped the rest into the cake. It worked fine. Definitely a recipe I'll use again.

    • Hey guys,   I appreciate the input, you are all very sweet and kind.   I do not eat out at all. Only eat food I cook. No alcohol. Only certified gluten-free oats, grains, rice, etc. I have 3 roommates in a little house. I have my own gluten-free section to cook and prepare food but it only does so much. They eat tons of bread and drink lots of beer so it's everywhere. I find myself washing my hands every 30 seconds just to lower my risk. I bite my nails, which I know doesn't help.    And I will look into those magnesium and calming products, those sound nice.   i think yea, the biggest thing I'm looking for here is a way to minimize these symptoms that throw me off. I'm feeling a bit better today, but still extremely sluggish, with a crippling stomach ache.  I guess I'll aim for 7 hours of sleep. That makes sense, I think I need to prioritize that.
    • What was your gluten free diet like? I wonder if, when you were gluten-free, you went more whole food, less processed food? Or did you continue to eat processed food that was just gluten free? One reason I ask is that I have cut way back on grains and processed foods like gluten-free bread, but occasionally allow myself a treat which is a gluten-free biscuit southern-style from the gluten-free bakery nearby. There is no better sleeping pill in the world! I am knocked out. I’m not saying you’re not Celiac, I’m just curious what your diet was replaced with. You’re definitely reacting to something, and in a way you’re lucky to know what that is! Plumbago
    • Equal parts Hershey Coco Powder and a sweetener with a pinch of salt. Super easy to make your own.  I like adding a bit to my coffee with almond milk, and lakanto sugar free maple, or a bit of monk fruit or stevia. 
      PS you might want to drop dairy milk. The enzymes to break it down come from the tips of the villi in your intestines....these are damaged first. You can probably reintroduce in a few months but we normally suggest dropping it, and going to a whole foods only diet when first going gluten free. Welcome to the community by the way here are some useful links.

    • I was just diagnosed yesterday via lab testing and was quite shocked.  I have been looking for gluten free replacements for things as I am a definite bread-lover.  I have been using the Non-Sugar-Added Nesquik every day since long before it the name change from Nestle's Quik and just checked the label this morning.  I does say "May contain wheat"....not that there may cross contamination, but since i am so new to this I don't know if those are essentially the same thing.   I guess I will need to be a little more strict in the beginning and then try adding things back in a few months that may not be definite offenders.   If it doesn;t work, I will have to find a substitute.  I did find Carnation Breakfast Essentials Light Start is Gluten Free, but much more expensive for using every day.  But apparently almost everything gluten-free is if it is not naturally that way.....
    • If I get cc -insomnia will manifest as one of the symptoms and knock me off sleep schedule. I also get fatigue. I have multiple symptoms. If diet and personal care under control , environmental or new exposure event? Are solely In school/classes or are you on rotation or observation in field? Are you handling or dispensing  any meds for patients that have gluten in it?. Even if gloved are you sensitive to airborne "dust " pharmaceutical med or Otc meds with gluten filler even when pouring can possibly effect you in my opinion. Maybe gloves/mask would help. Just a thought. Good luck.
