Trying to find a group with others that suffer from celiac. Any out there?

I've heard of this one:

http://phoenixceliac.org/

There's one down in Tucson, too: http://www.southernarizonaceliacsupport.org/

Have you checked out the gluten free bakery up there, or Picazzo's?

http://www.picazzos.com/

If you need someone to chat with, send me a private message. I'm down just past Tucson, but we head up to Phoenix every once in a while, and I'd be happy to chat. :-)

There are a few support groups that I know of. One in Phoenix, one in I believe Gilbert and one in Fountain Hills.

Here is some info on a meeting this Wednesday in Phoenix that you may want to attend.

This month's program: **THE RESTAURANT TABLE**

When: Sept 7, 2011, starting at 7pm

Who: CDF: Greater Phoenix Chapter Members, Guests & Friends

(INCLUDING: Youth ages 10-19 y/o interested in forming a Youth Group!)

Where: Paradise Valley Retirement Community' s Community Room, 11645 N 25th Place, Phoenix, AZ 85028 (Please park in the street.)

All of us can be very grateful that more & more restaurants are paying greater attention to our gluten-free dining needs. Our September meeting, to be held this coming Wednesday Sept. 7 @ 7PM, will celebrate some of these delicious dining options.

Join us at one of our most popular programs of the year..."The Restaurant Table." Meet representatives from 4 Valley restaurants and learn about their gluten-free menus. Newly invited guest restaurants include:

"The Melting Pot", "Outback Steakhouse", and "Blue Wasabi". And, returning guest "Picazzo's" is excited about sharing information about their new, expanded gluten free menu.

Join fellow CDF-Greater Phoenix Chapter members & friends as we learn about these restaurants' gluten-free options, ask questions about their menus, and gain insights into gluten free dining in general.

If you can, please bring a favorite gluten-free item for our refreshment table to share with fellow attendees and our restaurant guests. Samples of protein drink mixes have been provided by "Growing Naturals"; and, "Jovial Foods" has donated some pasta and filled cookies. For concerns or questions about treats to share, you may contact our Chapter's Activities Chair, Charlene at:

bcerpelding@cox.net

As always, please bring a list of ingredients so that fellow attendees can check for possible food allergies.

AND ANNOUNCING....youth ages 10

I'm in Phoenix, and newly diagnosed. I was literally at the end of my rope with undiagnosed doctors visits. Spent thousands of dollars on doctors, wife divorced me because there was never a diagnosis, lost my job in law enforcement because I was unable to absorb nutrients. Gained about 80 lbs, right in front of my doctor whom I'd been a regular for 15 years. Never once was a suggestion put forth to test for this.

So... Yeah, I'm filthy angry, but also finally have something that I can form closure around.

I have many questions, so I'll have to look into the meetings mentioned above.

    • Yeah I can not drink but as a chef the culinary uses for liquors, wines, and beer/ciders is amazing. Yeah I was thinking the same thing with the orange one using it in wither crock pot a bunch of chicken breast in, marinade them in prior to cooking is another thought. The apple one, I was thinking of doing a roast in it. you know how some people crock pot a roast in dr. pepper, root beer, or actual beer? I was thinking of doing a shoulder roast, or a boston butt in austin apple cider with some bacon and a bit of maplehoney in the pot along with half a sweet onion in there. Cook it say 8 hours, then drain it out and shred it then serve up with some sauce or plain depending on finished flavor. Thinking this would be nice to serve up with my bread for sandwiches, by itself, or perhaps over some chips. I also have this idea of using it to make a turkey or ham gravy, 8oz, simmer it down with trimmings and drippings from the holiday turkey/ham, the onion we cook in the pan with it chopped, 3 chopped roma tomatoes,  bay leaf, stir it with a rosemary twig, crush it all up with the back of the ladle,  then strain it out and pour in a gravy bowl with some chopped toasted walnuts in the bottom to be served with the dressing, and potatoes at new years for the family....Basing this on what I did last year with a dry sherry, but replacing it with the cider.
    • Austin's  are good ciders!   I have good luck using regular ( non- alcoholic) cider, especially for pork  roasts and pork chops!   but they do leave a bit of an Apple taste.  I think Austins has a dry cider?  That is less sweet, more beer- like.   They also have an interesting orange flavored one.  Might be good for chicken dishes.  The pineapple didn't taste very pineapples to me.
    • No milk in my diet. I don’t consume the major allergens. 
    • Thanks for the info. Great for folks that don't have a local source.  I found a place to get a good deal on both the big bag of jelly beans and licorice at my local Tractor Supply for 3 bucks each. Right now I am eating a 16 oz bag of their Bumble Beans that I got a Big Lots for $1.50. Those and Dark Chocolate baking chips are my worst food addictions.
    • Used some nice hard cider for a sub in beer can chicken last month for a cookout I was doing. I have been debating using it in place of beer in some marinades, baked goods, or roast that are cooked in a beer. I hear good reviews on them and I keep thinking the ciders might work I know I hear of people using AceCiders but I have not seen them. I used the following ones so far and only the apple. https://austineastciders.com/
