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.

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

I made these corn dog bites.

I used a gluten-free cornbread mix and buttermilk.

They were a big hit.

    • Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH.  It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck).  It comes and goes over the years which has thrown me a little, but from what I can tell it can happen with DH? Anyways I went to an allergist, he was a jerk and told me it was not an allergy and to get a biopsy (which was done ten years ago when it first happened, but okay).  Me being at my wits end I called up a local dermatologist and got an appt for a biopsy.  I went in armed and ready with the info I have read here about the correct biopsy etc.  Well of course the dermatologist wouldn't give me the time of day Would not listen to the past history of the rash or look at photos, was in and out within five minutes and insisted on a scratch biopsy instead of a punch biopsy.  She simply said she would be highly surprised if it was DH.  I try to respect doctors so I pushed but I did not push hard enough.  She did the scratch biopsy against my recommendations.  So that brings us to today when I received a message that the biopsy showed an allergy and that they could either give me an order of prednisone or refer me to an allergist.  Now if you remember my local allergist sent me away and said it wasn't an allergy.  I am so done and I refuse to just keep medicating myself, I need to find the root cause.   So I have a physical tomorrow night with my regular doctor and I am tempted to just insist on a punch biopsy next to the rash for a proper biopsy.  Couple questions for you guys though.  If a scratch biopsy came back as an allergy could that possibly lead to gluten allergy (I know it doesn't prove that, but could it mean it could be gluten?).  Should I keep pushing for a punch biopsy? I am planning to go gluten free after this appointment anyways but I keep eating it to try and get a proper diagnosis.  I feel I should get a proper diagnosis, one to keep me on track, one to make sure that is what it is and also I did try gluten free for 30 days before and it didn't seem to help the rash.  But from what I have read that could have been to short of a time.  I feel I need a proper diagnosis to help me stay with it and keep on the right path.   Lastly, the rash definitely went through stages and is at an end stage, still itches like crazy but isn't as bad looking as when it started.  Does it matter when you take the biopsy as long as there is a rash it will potentially show?  I hope all this makes sense.  I am tired of being told I am crazy from doctors.  If they could find the solution I wouldn't be looking myself.  I would be very happy to be proved wrong but so far that has not happened and I just want an answer! So tired of being itchy!! Thank you very much for your help and listening!!!
    • I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and have tried different meds but finally accepted I need the Zoloft and Xanax probably for life. I will say that most of our serotonin is in our stomachs and any time I switched meds or had to withdrawal my stomach issues were the worst. So please be careful with switching or stopping ( never cold turkey) any psychiatric medication. Also you could be sensitive to other grains. Gluten free bread does not like me. Also so far I have not found any one in the medical field that takes celiac seriously. I have been laughed at even and most don't have a clue what problems gluten does to us mentally and physically.
    • When does it matter if its gluten-free? ( likely is)  but she isn't eating it. She isn't 2 and put her fingers and paint brush in her mouth.  Are you or your son going to lick the glass?  Of course not.    Any paint can be be scraped off glass with a razor blade.  Some people use dry erase markers
    • Wow. I'm quite surprised that this is so highly heritable. I mean, I knew there was a genetic component, but most things I've read have said that it isn't very well understood and that other factors play a part.  This gives me a lot to think about.
    • The point is, celiac is mostly genetic, it can be dormant for years then come up. You can have it with no symptoms for years as it slowly eats away at your insides also. So you should have your kids eating gluten and get them tested. This way you know if they have active celiac. They should also be tested every year or so as there is a high chance they will get it.
