these are good. Gluten eaters will like them. If you are going to share any food, take yours first. Or easier, just bring a separate portion for yourself that you keep away from gluteny fingers and crumbs.

These are a few that I have handy:

Banana Split Cheesecake

Ingredients:

2 packages no-bake cheese cake mix (Throw away the crust and create your own with Gluten Free Graham Crackers/cookies or just omit the crust altogether)

This coffeecake was outstanding and it did not need refrigeration:

I used extra dark brown sugar for the topping and did not have any nuts. It was probably my favorite gluten-free dessert ever. Right up there with Pumpkin Bars.

Here's a nice summer dessert:

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

3/4 cup gluten-free pretzels

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

crush pretzels to pieces about 1/4 inch maximum

mix together

press into bottom of greased 8 X 8 inch pan

bake 350 F for about 7 minutes

cool about 1 hour

4 oz cream cheese

1/4 cup sugar

8-9 oz Cool Whip

whip cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy

fold in Cool Whip (add more to taste if you want)

spread across pretzel layer (save a little for garnish if desired)

refrigerate 15 minutes or longer

1 small package strawberry Jello

1 cup hot water

1 large package frozen strawberries (without juice)

or sliced fresh strawberries - about 1/2 pint

dissolve jello in water, then add strawberries

after it thickens a little, pour over cream cheese layer

refrigerate 2 hours minimum

If using fresh strawberries, wash, cut (as desired) and put in freezer

15 minutes or longer to help the Jello begin to set quickly

You can reserve a small amount of the jello mix and add to the cream cheese layer to make it pink.

Another one - this looks and tastes like it took a lot of trouble to make, but really is not hard. Although as we are baking in 100+ temps outside, the thought of turning my oven on....

Petite White Chocolate Cranberry Scones

2 cups gluten-free flour blend

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp lemon or orange zest

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter/margarine

3/4 cup whipping cream

3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

3/4 cup gluten-free white baking chips

1/2 cup gluten-free white baking chips

2 tsp shortening

Heat oven to 400oF

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, zest and salt in a large bowl

Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs

Stir in cream, mix in

Stir in cranberries and 3/4 cup white baking chips

Knead dough 5-10 times until smooth

Divide dough into 4 equal pieces

Shape each piece into a 8 X 1 inch log

Cut each log into 4 pieces (2 inch each)

Cut each 2-inch piece in half diagonally

Place on ungreased baking sheet at least 1 inch apart

Bake 9-11 minutes - golden brown around the edges

Cool completely

Mix 1/2 cup baking chips and 2 shortening in small microwaveable bowl

Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds at a time until melted

Stir and drizzle scones with melted chocolate

gluten-free Flour Blend (or use your favorite)

2 cups white rice flour

2/3 cup potato starch

1/3 cup tapioca starch

2 tsp Xanthan gum

----------------------------------------------------------------

One more comment - I make a lot of good desserts, but honestly, what everyone seems to go for the most is when I make gluten-free brownies. Nothing special about the recipe, but I top with a very thin layer of chocolate frosting and Heath bar pieces.

How about individual pavlovas? They are so pretty and tasty. Or using some meringue make Eton Mess. gluten-free shortbread with panna cotta or semifreddo is nice. Butterscotch or chocolate brownies dressed with maybe a raspberry coulis or caramel are awesome. I've made chocolate chip cookie dough brownies and they are deliciuos. I've been making lots of granita and Strawberry/Raspberry Fool. Or make chocolate chip cookies and turn them into ice cream sandwiches. gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are delicious and easy to make from scratch. Maybe chocolate truffles?

Most cheesecakes can easily be made gluten-free and so can Angel Food cake (yummy with a glaze, buttercream or 7-Minute frosting).

    • Many celiacs can eat 10- 20 mg of gluten per day (10-20 ppm in one kilogram of food) without adverse effects.  That is roughly equivalent to 1/16-1/8 teaspoon flour.  More than a trace, but still a small amount.  Some of us cannot handle that amount.
    • Everything with the gluten-free certification must be below 20ppm in a lab test. THAT is much much less then a crumb. Toasters are cheap just get a new ones. If you eat whole foods only your chances are much much less of getting CCed. We normally suggest no gluten-free processed foods (dough, mixes, chips, crackers. breads etc) for the first few months only eating whole foods to boost your healing also remove dairy and oats as they can be hard to process with the initial damage (Diary requires the enzyme lactase which is produced by the tips of the villi in the intestines which are the most damaged).   To make it much easier clean our your microwave really goods, put down some paper towels in the bottom when you use it and get some nordicware microwave cook ware, a new mixing bowl. measure cup, spatula, and some basic eating and cooking utensils and you can start fixing stuff that way starting off without worry. I love steamed veggies, omelettes, etc done this way so tender and easy to digest.  I might also suggest using freezer/butcher paper for a clean prep surface starting off also makes clean up a breeze since you just trash it when done.  You can get the rest of you appliances, pots, pans and everything else changed over later. And this makes it simple to get started....PS crockpot liners are a life saver and making huge pots of stew, or roast in them from raw ingredients is super simple and you can eat on it for days.
    • Hi again Victoria  - I've just read your other comment about your insides feeling like they might slip out!  Poor you!  But yes - I can identify with that.  I actually get that exact feeling when I get a UTI - are you sure you haven't got a UTI?  x
    • Third trimester pain is a good way of describing it!  I know someone with another gastrointestinal complaint - diverticulitis - which causes this sensation too - so it could purely be down to our gut. What I would say is what side is you pain on? Is it pretty diffuse or is it on the left or right side?  For me, it was the left side, rather as if when I was pregnant a baby was standing on my hip/groin area.  As it was on the left a sigmoidscopy was indicated to make doubly sure nothing else was going on, after an internal pelvic scan u/s ruled out other problems. (I note you have had a hysterectomy but have you had any of the above scans recently? - might be worth doing to give you peace of mind). If you want to find out if it is your sacroiliac joint causing you problems, a physio or chiropractor will be able to put their finger on it (literally).  My left sacroiliac joint is very tender now but before I was shown where the joint actually was, I wouldn't have known  otherwise as the pain refers in a great part to my groin.   I nearly shot through the roof when my chiropractor touched the sacroiliac area.   The cure for that is rest and the right type of exercise, not carrying heavy loads, wearing comfortable supportive shoes etc. Another thing that pelvic pain can be caused by is pelvic congestion.   I'm not sure if this would affect someone who has had a hysterectomy. One radiographer told me I had a lot of veins (like internal varicose veins) which might be causing me pain, although when the gynaecologist looked at me she said they were normal.   Personally, I think in my case it is a mix of sacroiliac issues, bloating and possibly pelvic congestion!  A bit of everything in the mix! One thing I cannot do any more is wear tight waistbands or other tight clothes.  For whatever reason this makes things so much worse.  If you are wearing tight waistbands, definitely give that a miss. Sorry - this is a bit of a ramble, but it might throw some light on your situation.
    • So this is all new to me. Had an endoscopy done. Showed inflammation, some biopsies were taken etc. researching going gluten free and I'm completely baffled. What I've read says even a trace of gluten can be "poisonous"( sorry for the dramatics) to a person with celiac, yet gluten free doesn't mean 0 gluten. How is that supposed to provide any peace?  Someone said to get rid of even appliances that had gluten in them due to contamination. How is it that crumbs in a toaster are worse than gluten in supposedly gluten free food? The diet itself doesn't scare me. I've actually found comfort in all the gluten free options. Baking mixes, doughs, pasta, pizza crusts, etc. I was very pleased that I could maintain eating what I like with relatively minor adjustments. The concern being that even doing this, there's still a possibility of consuming gluten just makes me feel like I'm never going to get ahead with this. Any advice?
