Yes. I think it's generally awesome for a box mac & cheese. I can only say that it is way better with the butter than without. I only know this because I once realized after I had the pasta in the water that I had no butter or I wouldn't know.

Has anyone had Annie's gluten free white chedder mac and cheese? Any tips on making it?

 

Used to get it for the kids...they like Sam Mills Mac and Cheese better now if you can find -- added bonus -- it is cheeper.

 

Oh and Velveeta is making a white block of cheese type food substance that is awesome tossed with any pasta shape.

Velveeta also makes cheese sauce in a packet now that you can just squeeze out onto your pasta that is easier even than the block. It's something like $2-3 for a box of 3. They're great for my husband. I can just cook up a batch of gluten-free pasta and throw that on there and it's perfect. And I may sneak a few bites no matter how bad I know it is for me. :ph34r: It's so yummy. I'm terrible, I shouldn't like things that aren't food.

Lemme know how they turn out and what recipe you use. I haven't made cookies yet and my husband just spent his day off carrying heaving stuff to my new kitchen for me instead of playing video games. And I'm dragging him shopping and to my vendor meeting. I don't think the rib eyes I decided on for dinner are gonna cut it for a thank you. The carpets are being cleaned tomorrow and I'm going to need recuperating time but I think I could manage some baking on Friday. Cookies sound like just the thing, and he loooooooooooves him some cookies.

I buy it regularly and really like it.  White rice pasta can overcook, but not as easily as corn pasta, so don't overcook it, and yes it is better with the butter added.

I haven't seen those!  I would buy them once and enjoy, and then not again cause they are bad for me, haha.

The heat got bad today...so most of the day was spent "cleaning" the pool ; )

 

I am going to go for gold with the new gold flour -- our favorite cookie (pre-celiac), other than chocolate chip was crisp sugar cookies - a recipe passed from person to person -- often quickly at time -- never understood their name, but called "My Cup Sugar Cookies".

 

Can't wait -- no matter how they turn out I'll let you know....likely quite "loudly" if they are good as they are not only my favorite, but my Mom's  :wub: .

 

Tonight's crock recipe rocked!  The recipe calls for it to be served as sandwiches.  Was too hot so I was down in the pool...hubs took over -- at my suggestion he thickened the sauce, pulled a bit out for me, then added a can of diced tomatoes -- threw the whole deal over pasta with a side of yummy carrots :)

No. It's this one with some modifications

http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-hearty-chicken-pot-pie/78b0ab8f-a1c1-43a3-8258-e0bb35751d55

I use a 9x13 pan. So I use about 1 1/4 cup Bisquick for the crust - add a little extra milk if needed to get a thick consistency. I peel , cut boil , drain, 2 potatoes. I use about 1 cup milk and 21/2 cups chicken broth.

There is another recipe with canned soup that is good but pretty salty. Really easy though.

I have an amazing husband who worked his butt off on his day off for me. Halfway through the move I decided I wanted a little lunch. Exactly when the dishes were 100% in the new kitchen and the food was 100% in the old kitchen. Not exactly helpful for finding a meal. Lucky me I had one leftover slice of pizza that I threw in my little oven on a piece of foil and had that after it was warm. I dragged my husband off to my meeting, and will get a smaller space that better suits me that is in the shade for half the price for the markets. YAY!!! Went shopping for a few things we needed and finally splurged for something I've been dying for for months. This is our new move in gift to ourselves. http://www.chefn.com/Product.aspx?id=261

 

Dinner was pan fried rib eyes (balsamic glazed onions topping for me) with ore ida simply potato wedges and corn. Simple, yet perfectly delicious and a great way to end a long and stressful/wonderful day.

 

Also, last night I noticed a light rash on the backs of my hands. I shrugged it off thinking I must have gotten a little cleaner on me or something that irritated my skin. Today I got into no cleaners, only my dish soap and water. The rash has spread onto the backs of my fingers, one wrist and my hands very lightly yet noticeably puffy and warm to the touch. Panic time, popped the benadryl. I have no idea what the actual hell I'm reacting to. If it's worse when I get up I may end up in an instacare for my morning. Joy.

This is my new kitchen. It isn't large, but it's all mine! One from right after I finished cleaning and the other is after I moved in my stuff, the counter appliances and such are (maybe) where I like them.

Nothing wrong with the size of that kitchen -- loads of cabinets and less floor to mop :)

 

Another scorcher today so we continue with the week of KFG cooking...next up is the Balsamic Chicken recipe I posted yesterday -- don't think I'll be doctoring this one much except I'm using a whole cut up chicken -- hubs is a breast man ;)

You guys are funny. I'm not complaining about the size of the kitchen, was just mentioning that it's small. The only downside to it is if we're passing each other we're rubbing up against each other. Well, maybe that isn't a downside after all. ;) There is a "cabinet" around the corner (freestanding) to use as a pantry, that's what makes it feel small. The lack of a pantry.

 

I'm not sure exactly what will happen tonight for supper. He's working 2 hours earlier than usual to do a sleep study, but I had already made plans to go to my bff's office and work for her this evening (she's an accountant and I do bookkeeping stuff) thinking I'd be home before he gets home late. I guess he's on his own for dinner and to see himself off. I'll just have to feed myself and while that means I could have whatever I want, I'll probably just do something easy with little cleanup. Maybe that burger I keep saying I'm making and don't get around to.

I love your kitchen!

Cool bunnies set.  Do they come as a black and white set or your choose black OR white?

 

I love those tiered basket things.  (I bought one for myself then donated it to a fundraiser.  Maybe I thought I would buy it back, but the bids went too high.)

 

My whole house needs to be scrubbed!

It comes as a black and white set. I had intended when I went into the store to buy the plain little ball that is either red, blue or green and clear. But my husband was all omg this is so cute! And I was like yeah, it's freakin' adorable. And $20. (on sale!) We walked a bit and came back to it deciding we needed both a move in gift and could pass on a few other small things for a while to fit it into our budget. It isn't like they're on sale every day. I may have an impulse shopping problem. :ph34r:

 

My MIL bought that basket thing when I was doing the Bountiful Baskets produce thing every Saturday morning. There is also a hanging one upstairs. (which I'd prefer to have but takes more effort to move) She doesn't want/need them and told me to take this one so I did when I realized I had nowhere to put all my onions.

 

We were in a dollar store last night that is closing and I picked up a bargain $.75 bottle of Rainbow Dash colored nail polish. Today is manicure day for me.

My husband is away for a sleep study again tonight. He didn't sleep enough the first time to get enough readings to be conclusive about needing a c-pap so they're just going to try one to see if it helps since he obviously has at least a moderate apnea problem. I was at the office late (it feels so weird to say that!) with my best friend setting up all my accounts so I can start doing everything and doing taxes tomorrow. (lots of people file late, and there is lots of tax stuff to do all year round) So, with all this going on, I came home and had toast and fried eggs for supper and painted my nails while watching the episode of Grey's Anatomy I've been waiting months for!!!

 

I also haven't played a minute of video games for over 48 hours, which must be a record for me and haven't played more than 30-45 minutes at a time since last weekend. So, since I'm alone and in far too much pain for sleep I think I'm going to have a late night gaming session to give my nails the time they need to set. And I need some fun since tomorrow is "relax" day while I sit and lose myself in a virtual stack of tax paperwork. A mecca. ^_^ (I'm twisted)

Last night's Balsamic Chicken rocked the crock....also did something I found brilliant...I married Addie's Brazilian Cheese Bread with Jamie's new donut pan - really worked well..instead of puffs it made firmer cheesy bread rings...hubs hasn't made fun of the donut pans crowding the cupboard...between chocolate carmel donuts and cheesy rings...I think they are safe (he tends to "clear" out kitchen items when I'm horizontal, meanwhile there is an entire shop and storage room downstairs that never gets "cleared of crap" ;)

 

Still cool here...that'll change in a couple hours...might be one more night of crockin'...Spider-Man with the men late afternoon/early evening - can't wait.

 

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps  :wub:

    • Over the last 1.5 years I have had a rash that will not go away.  The rash is around the neck, hairline on the front of my head, the back of my scalp, elbows, knees, shins, parts of my ankle, and buttock.  The rash seem to get very itchy during the evening.  I did have a skin biopsy completed and blood tests last year and they came back negative.   I was on oral steroids when I had the test would this possible skew the results? Also its seems the body parts that are exposed to the sun seem to have the rash. Some Pictures

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better  
    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!   PPS( )  Inasmuch as your post can convey emotion, your's seemed positive  Stay that way! At times the diet can be a bit isolating and some friends and family may struggle to understand. I'm sure it will be difficult at times making good choices and staying vigilant when everyone around you doesn't have to think twice. Stick with it, your health is paramount and it will be worthwhile. In time your good friends will get it and those that don't aren't worth worrying about. There are great foods you can eat and if not, learn to cook them yourself
