Finally got the "I can't believe it's gluten-free" cookbook.  Hubs made the peanut butter cookies in the recipe.  He made them with butter so they are pretty flat and gooy but at least they aren't like eating sand. They taste fine.  I have a flour mix that a friend put together for me (she has been gluten-free for several years).  I want him to use his regular recipe and see how it goes.  I have some hope that the Christmas baking will be ok :D.

It's really hard to sub gluten-free flour blend for regular flour in recipes.  I think you're better off searching for gluten-free recipes.  I've found some very good ones (and some bad ones).

The recipe was basically the same, but called for butter vs using Crisco shortening like he normally does.  I am not a fan of cookies made with butter--just too gummy and greasy.  My friend that mixed the flours for me said she uses her normal recipes and adds Xantan Gum appropriately.  I've had her baking and they are fine.

It will be less of a chore as time goes on.  Glad we can inspire you with recipes.... here is a gluten-free but totally not healthy one:

 

Last I googled bacon and hot dogs because I had both in my fridge, which is unusual, and got this: http://www.plainchicken.com/2013/06/cheesy-bacon-wrapped-hot-dogs.html

 

So I stuffed them with cheddar, wrapped in uncooked bacon... baked and and they were really good!  Had them on the canyon bakehouse hot dog buns, which are really good.  too bad I only bought one package when I did my bread order.  I also make banana nut muffins since I had some brown bananas that needed used up.  Those never last long, so good when they are warm!

 

Tonight I am going to make chicken stir fry.

We used to make those hot dogs all the time when we were little.  I LOVED those (and forgot about them).

Bought a gluten-free cook book with tons of crock pot recipes. Asking for the Gluten free on a Shoestring books for Christmas. Tonight some pasta with tomato and basil. Laura, when and if I can do lactose again I will try the hotdogs.

Tonight I'll be having my usual light supper (after having a huge lunch). It'll be a grilled cheese on Canyon Bakehouse 7-grain. (I traded in two loaves of that horrible Mountain White.)

 

And I can now say that the very BEST grilled cheese sandwiches are made with Udi's multi-grain. I've tried the Schar and it's OK, and although I love the Canyon Bakehouse 7-grain at room temperature or toasted, the Udi's grills up nicer and tastes better with all that gooey cheese melted between the slices.

 

The cat will be disappointed because we won't be having cod tonight. Looks like she'll have to make do with cat food. :lol:

Had pancakes and bacon. I thought I had some of the Bisquick gluten-free mix but I didn't, but I found some Krusteaz in the cupboard.  They were good, on the sweetside, but so are their gluten mixes.  They are heavy and they don't bubble up like gluten ones so it's a new learning curve to cook them :D.

I made cheeseburgers on Canyon bakehouse buns... the best ones out there by far, no toasting needed.  Carrots on the side.  I also made these italian almond cookies today, I don't remember where I first saw them, some gluten-free website or facebook thing had pointed out this contest winning recipe was gluten-free.  http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/taste/recipes/284646961.html

They are really good.  If I make them again I will ease up on the almond extract.

I had some leftover pancake mix that I put in the fridge overnight and made some for breakfast.  The mix held up overnight and the pancakes were actually a little lighter this morning.  Nice to know :D

 

Pork chops tonight--not sure what I'm going to serve with them, probably zucchini.

I roasted some red peppers with onions and broccoli and grilled some nice sized portobello mushroom caps for dinner last night but somewhere along the way yesterday I must have eaten lactose or gluten because I wasn't able to eat dinner :( still working on feeling better today. Probably try some veggie stuffed chicken tonight and roasted potatoes, maybe I will be able to pick at it. :(

    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time. Try:  http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/answered-questions/suddenly-drinking-alcohol-makes-me-sick http://www.steadyhealth.com/topics/very-abnormal-hangovers-thinking-it-could-be-allergy-to-alcohol Cheers Sorry, best of luck!

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
    • LOL, that might put it into perspective if I explain it that way. 
    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
