Ewww, the brownies were horrible.

I made them from the El Peto mix. Any recommendations for a better brownie mix?

Have you tried the Betty Crocker gluten-free brownie mix? I really like it and even gluten eaters like it, too (like my son, who does not have celiac).

I agree the Betty Crocker gluten free brownie mix is really good. Unfortunately I had to stop using it when I when soy free.

How about Pamela's? I don't know what it contains though. I know the King Arthur gluten-free brownie mix doesn't have soy.

We are going over to my mom's house tonight and we are making chicken parm (the chicken is breaded with almond flour and we are using homemade sauce), salad and Annie Chun's pad thai noodles as the pasta.

For dessert I am trying Pamela's vanilla cake mix and I am making a peanut butter cream cheese frosting.

We have a hug pot of chili and some biscuits from last night.

And I am working on a bottle of wine from my son.

Happy Mothers Day everyone.

I had a 2 or 3 week old cabbage in the frig and decided today was the day, I had to cook that head of cabbagge! (I am a master procrastinator.) I finally dedcided on Hungarian cabbage casserole after persuing several recipes online and reading all the reviews. I added sauteed ground chicken, ground sirloin and ground Italian sausage so that it could be a lunch for several days. We need our protein!

It was good, but wasn't done until about 30 minutes after DP's charcoal grilled chicken was done. Happily, I called my neighbor and asked if she was up for another wierd lunch for work tomorrow. She's a good sport and said "Bring it on". She was actually very happy about it. At the end of the day, I'm happy, doubly so because I made dear neighbor happy. (I told her it wasn't especially good, but included all food groups except fruit. So I took her a pear too. I'm pretty sure she'll love the pear. :D

Spanish rice made with brown rice. It smells good! I just hope that my daughter will eat it. She doesn't really like brown rice. But she is on the South Beach diet so white rice is out. Also a side of zesty salsa refried beans.

I made ground chicken Hawaiain meatballs adapted from Pioner Woman's blog for Meatballs with Pineapple and Peppers.

My breadcrumbs were Udi's sandwich bread that has been in the freezer for over a year, whirled them up in my mini food procesor. I followed the :D rest of the recipe pretty closely. I stuck a piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet before freezing those little balls. (They were prone to stick. Anyway, they came out great! :D

Hope everybody will wear purple this Friday, it's for Lupus awareness. I'll be sporting purple. I

    • Just thought of something else.  Have you tried cream of rice cereal?   When I was at my worst, I'd have this a few times a day to settle my stomach. 
    • The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA   You can either have a gastroenterologist order the full celiac panel plus whatever else they typically test for, or you can order your own test at a site like walkinlab.com. At walkinlab.com it's called the celiac comprehensive test and costs $298.00 (not covered by insurance). Then if any one test comes up high you can give it to your gastroenterologist so they can do an endoscopy. The blood draw is done at your nearest Labcorp. Personally I'd make an appointment at the gastro so they can order their other blood tests and just insist on the full celiac panel also. There's any number of things it could be, not just celiac. If you don't get diagnosed you probably won't stick with a 100 percent gluten free diet for the many months required to see if it works. Good luck in your search.
    • You could certainly try.  Just remember that, if the mix doesn't have xanthum gum, you may need a little.  
    • Maybe the 20 mg. was too strong for you and increasing symptoms?   I have a very low threshold for most meds, and do better on child sized doses.   If you tolerate the 10 mg., that may be the way to go just to get symptoms under control and get stabilized.  Or maybe 10 mg. every other day, if that works. I read that food intolerance symptoms can take 24 to 48 hours to show up.   Can you think of what you were eating in the week before all this started?   I have always used dairy to settle my stomach, so until I figured out the dairy intolerance I was using a small glass of warm milk whenever my stomach was upset.   It provided immediate relief, but caught up with me hours later.   It was kind of hard to believe that milk was the cause when it was so effective in immediate symptom management.    I had also increased chocolate, coffee, and peanut butter right around the same time.  They don't seem to be intolerances (or maybe they are in huge quantities!), but they were irritants, so I needed to avoid them to get things to settle down.  Now that I'm approaching the 3 month point and starting to do better, I have been able to drink coffee with soy milk to buffer, have a little chocolate, and sample some peanuts without much distress.  Perhaps the hardest part of all of this is the time it takes (why forever?!), and how limited one's diet must be for so long in order to stabilize.  I was so sick of eating the same thing for so many weeks, that I started dreading the next meal.  I agree that symptoms and recovery become a blur.  I started making notes on a calendar so I could be more objective and accurate in looking back to assess my symptoms, what I'd tried, and progress.  Otherwise, I just couldn't tell what really did and didn't work.   What seemed like a week ago was really 2 or 3 ... I know you know what I mean! Do follow up with your doctor as need be.  I find that GI docs aren't that helpful for this sort of thing as it's minor in the general scheme of GI things.  My PCP basically told me it was trial and error, as it's different for each one of us.  He could only guide me in meds.   
    • I am sorry that you are all having to go through this. I know all too well the neuro issues she is going through. The world seems so hopeless under that gluten cloud. But it does lift.  There isn't much a neurologist is going to be able to do except to encourage her to be as strict as possible.  It would be a good idea to have your GP or GI do a vitamin and mineral panel if that hasn't already been done. We do sometimes need supplementation while healing as some nutrients do have an impact on the nervous system function. What I find helps me the most is knowing that it is the gluten and it will pass. It is a horrible feeling when it is happening and is hard on ones loved ones.  All you really can do to help her is to remind her that it is the gluten that is making her feel so bad. Try to provide distractions and understanding. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section it has a lot of good info for you.  These episodes will come less often as accidental glutenings become less frequent. Ask any questions you need and feel free to vent on the tough days.
