This is what I miss most - a $35,000 dessert...

:lol: I'm not a chocolate fan but I do love champagne and caviar!

Also if anyone can make a gluten-free Triscuit or Shredded wheat they are a genius. One of the few processed things I miss--mainly for the texture is Triscuits. I've looked and have not found even any regular recipes for duplicating Triscuits, let alone gluten free ones.

OMG! I ate an entire box of Triscuits in 3 days prior to my biopsy because the doctor was pretty sure I was going to be going gluten-free after it...oh, I miss that crunchy salty treat.

Besides all of the above:

Sushi - I'd like to be able to get a california roll and a shrimp tempura roll at a restaurant or at the grocery. I know I can make it all myself, but sometimes you just want it done for you. I'm also not that big a fan of nigiri.

Good bread - I worked in a french bakery for 6 years before being diagnosed. So I'm a little jaded.

Beer - anything you can't see through. The first person to create a gluten-free porter should be thrown a parade.

Try the Belgian imported Green's Endeavor dubbel dark ale. It's pricey but it's an honest-to-god dark beer. http://www.merchantduvin.com/brew-greens-gluten-free.php

People have mentioned some of my favorites. Crusty French baguette, Triscuits, pizza with REAL crust (and why must all gluten-free pizza be Chicago style??? New York style gluten-free pizza, please!) I have others to add though.

1. Knishes with potato filling.

2. Fresh gnocci or ravioli with interesting filling. I can get dried gluten-free pasta with no fillings but if I want fresh I have to make it, which is a pain.

3. Still-warm sopapillas with honey.

4. Beer battered onion rings. (Separate fryer and gluten-free beer, please.)

5. Pastry. I MISS going to a bakery and getting cake slices with the thin layers and fruit or cream filling in-between, napoleons, cream puffs, eclairs, or cannoli. I could probably make them gluten-free but it's a ton of work.

6. Calzones

7. New York street pretzels. You know the ones I mean. They come from the carts and taste slightly smoky from the charcoal fire, have the big chunks of rock salt on them, and you eat them with yellow mustard.

I thought I would miss pizza, but I don't miss it nearly as much as I supposed I would.

For me I miss a big old crusty, baguette the most... used to love it with brie or camembert, or just dipped in olive oil. :(

Convenience. (I know, you can't help me there). I can pretty much make and adapt anything I want, but I miss grabbing a burger and fries on the road while on a day trip to another city. Or sampling that city's specialty while on a tour. Which brings me to:

Eating out. Without having to explain celiac disease in detail to every server (which is why I seldom eat out). This, of course, is exactly what you are trying to help with, and for that I want to thank you. Please tell us the name of your restaurant and the city it is in, because I would love to visit it someday!

ETA: If your city DOES have a specialty (like Chicago deep dish pizza, or Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches) please see if you can adapt it to gluten-free. THAT could even get you a spot in the local newspaper or, dare I say, a gluten-free magazine. :)

Fried Chicken

Fish & Chips

Corn Dogs

French Fries

Fried Dough

Chicken Nuggets

Gyros (on a pita)

Chicken Parm

Lucky for me I don't have much of a sweet tooth B)

While in the frozen food section yesterday I passed bagels and wished for second that I could have one. I so used to love a sausage patty with an egg on a onion bagel with cream cheese for breakfast!

I miss Vermicelli (angel hair) pasta, as well as tortellini. A good tortellini is a wonderful thing... (I'm not Italian, but I love Italian food.)

I think the thing I miss the most is perogies!

I've made a perogi casserole which is mashed potatoes layered with cheese and lasagna noodles which is totally yummy...but not exactly the same...

I tried making my own perogies also...but the dough is pretty hard to work with to get them to stay together...:S

I'v had Conte's frozen, gluten-free,WF,CF - gnocchi,ravioli and spinach ravioli, all very good. Check out Conte's online maybe you can order them. Our local pasta store "Pastosa" carrys that brand but also has fresh stuffed shells, ravioli, spinach ravioli. I've tried both fresh raviolis and making the shells for Christmas. They ship anywhere.

This year I missing pastiera and struffoli. Aleia's make a great almond horn got them last week. Enjoy the Holidays.

For almost six years I asked to eat at Lucky Wishbone (local fried food chain in Tucson). Never, ever ever ever got it.

Hubs always made an excuse - no...too heavy, too greasy, will give him indigestion.

Mind, he RAVED about eating it as a kid/college.

So, a few weeks before I MOVE TO TUCSON AND COULD EAT LUCKY WISHBONE WHENEVER I WANT I'm told to "try gluten-free".

So, I am now a resident of Tucson and don't know what the heck Lucky Wishbone tastes like.

And I have no idea why I'm bitter about something I've never tried, except my 9 year-old RAVES about it, since hubby took HIM.

I had months to make peace with mostly cutting out fried foods. (stupid useless gallbladder) The celiac thing kind of blindsided me since neither my doctor or me suspected it. (diagnosed by a total fluke) So I may miss chicken nuggets, mozz sticks and onion rings, but there's no point learning to make things I really shouldn't be eating anyway.

I made this amazing artisan french bread. Dense but still somehow airy, melt in your mouth, close your eyes in ecstasy bread. A raved about staple of Christmas gift baskets. It may be years until I can resist temptation enough to make it for gift baskets.

Red velvet cake. Quite possibly the second most amazing dessert in existence. (Nothing can top tiramisu, my first real baking project after mastering pie crust will be lady fingers.)

Grilled cheese. Okay, so sure I can get a knife, fight with a frozen loaf of Udi's for 5 minutes trying to pry 2 slices off, then defrost it, then slap together a sandwich. But frankly, it just isn't the same.

I totally get the Pop Tarts thing. My husband walked in with a box of some new tropical flavored ones about a week ago. "Oh, you wouldn't have liked them anyway." Really? Hi, have we met? Tropical fruit? omg yes please! I was tempted to beat him senseless with the box.

Happily you CAN have great gluten free red velvet cake as cakes are amongst the simplest things to make gluten free. :) Anyway, here is a good red velvet cake recipe: ://www.glutenfreecookingschool.com/archives/gluten-free-red-velvet-cake/. I have another in one of my books.

I believe someone posted a recipe for Pop Tarts on here not long ago.

You are my hero! After the disappointment I suffered with cookies I've been scared of cake but that looks heavenly. I did see the recipe for the Pop Tarts but it's more trouble than they're worth to me. I may change my mind after years without them.

No problem. Honestly, cakes are even easier to make gluten free than cookies. Probably the easiest of all is brownies, then cakes and cupcakes and quick breads, then cookies...oh, and pastry is very simple to make - actually, even easier than gluten pastry because it doesn't fight back. It just sits there! :P

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
