OK guys, this new format takes a little getting used to. I hope you all come back. Last night I tried the Mayacamas spicey pasta mix and ad libbed it. I used chopped up veggies, plus slivered skirt steak and added the pasta mix with a little tomato sauce with a corn spaghetti and it was wonderful. Very easy and quick and tasted just great. :blink: Shirley in San Diego

:rolleyes: Shirley in San Diego,

Are you the same Shirley who posted as "aramgard" in the former message board? If so, I am glad to see you back. I only posted several times but I read most of the messages once I discovered the site. When the message board format was changed, I was so disappointed that I might lose sight of yours and several others' sage advice. This site has been my lifeline since I was diagnosed about a year ago. It has helped me tremendously.

Yes Flo, I am the same Shirley. Aramgard was the name my mother wanted to name me when I was born and my dad wouldn't let her. So in her honor I chose that handle. Silly isn't it? Don't ever feel alone with Celiac we are all here to help. :rolleyes:

That's kinda cool, Shirley. Any idea where your mom got the name? It is very unique.

And that dish you posted sounds good. Where do you get the pasta mix?

Hi Shirley, how are you? What is happening with your daughter and son-in-law? I saw a picture and story in the paper about a family in Harbison Canyon, and how they had fought to move in a trailer. I read the story, thinking it might be your family.

What an intriguing thought, that your mother wanted to name you Aramgard--we've got to know more about that!

Jacque, I have been wanting to find a cheese cake for my grand-daughters, who I believe might be celiac disease, so I will search until I find your recipe.

Thanks to all for your input. Welda

Hi Welda, I'm much better, though my husband got a really bad cold and now has bronchitis so I'm hoping I don't get sick again. My daughter and her husband ended up getting an RV which they can drive in and out of the canyon and are now living back on their property. My son-in-law works for Cal-Trans and they have been allowing him to work from 2 to about 10 at night so he has mornings to work on the property. I think he's burning the candle at both ends. Sherie is beginning to get her act together and feeling better about the whole thing, except that rain was a little stressing, they only had a minor mud slide. If it ain't one thing it's another. That's life I guess, either fire or flood. I used to order Mayacama products over the Celiac Mall, but last week I found them at Henry's and was absolutely thrilled. :rolleyes: You might check out, I think it may still be Boney's in north county. Welcome Back, Shirley

Welda, I reread the Mayacama label last night and found that some of it has Whey which I don't think you can eat--sorry. I'm really glad I'm beginning to tolerate some milk products and can still tolerate eggs, because being without fish and shellfish is a real downer for me. Shirley

Hi everybody!! I'm trying to come up with new things that I can actually eat. I loved pretzels BC (Before Celiac), but now, obviously, I can't eat them. I'm adjusting much better than I thought I would to this no gluten thing. But it is a learning curve, and, being newly diagnosed, I am just beginning to climb that curve.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated, and I'm open to emails because it is soooo nice to know that I'm not ALONE :P !!!!

Any way thanks for any ideas

As far as pretzles go...a company called Ener-G makes a wheat free/gluten free pretzel. They aren't bad at all. I actually like them better than regular pretzles. They are kind of expensive, but sure helps for the cravings!! Enjoy!!

I am newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance, it's WONDERFUL to find this message board! I've been doing okay finding gluten free foods in my area, but one thing I can't find is a good bread. I want to be able to just buy a loaf of bread like I used to, and I want to be able to make sandwiches with it. I tried a rice pecan bread, but it was quite hard & sweet, & not great tasting to me. Plus the slices were tiny. Or do I just have to get used to making bread now? This is quite the learning process for me, although it's only been 3 weeks & I feel so much better already being gluten free! Any ideas are really appreciated!

mg5676,

Are you referring to Food for Life brand bread? It's the best bread I have tried so far, but then I happen to like a slightly sweet flavor to my breads. Have you tried warming up the bread slightly (10-20 seconds in the microwave)? This improves the texture dramatically. Just be sure you don't overheat the bread, or it will turn gummy! Yes, the slices are tiny, but have you compared the calorie count to regular bread? You wouldn't want a much bigger slice (unless you are really skinny, of course)! gluten-free breads are also rather fragile and do better when made in smaller loaves. I haven't tried baking my own gluten-free bread yet, but it is always an option. Good luck, and enjoy experimenting!

    • I am curious which gene you have?  DQ6?
    • Tapioca is also a common source for "modified food starch."
    • Thanks for all your help. I got my new test results in. I'm surprised by how fast they came back. It is a different lab (different insurance) and fortunately, it is easier to read, but unfortunately, the results still seem a bit off from a clear cut answer.  Gliadin DP Igg was elevated,  along with my EMA.  The tTG IgA was not elevated on this test, although it was equivocal last time but on a completely different scale since it was from a different lab.     It seems odd that the tTG IgA is lower. Does anyone know anything about that?  At the same time, EMA and Gliadin DP IgG are higher.   I appreciate everyone's input. Until now, I have only been seeing an endocrinologist and my primary care.  They both seem to be aware of celiac but not incredibly confident in navigating the diagnosis.  My endo shrugged off the first test results as not that high.  Obviously, I don't want to have celiac, but I wanted a second opinion.  I was glad that my primary care wanted to at least look at tests again. I'm not sure yet what the next steps will be.   Celiac Serology Profile with Reflex to Endomysial Antibody (EMA), IgA Titer by IFA   NAME VALUE REFERENCE RANGE F Endomys. IgA Screen Positive  A Neg. at 1:5 ("") F Endomys.

    • In the rare instance that "modified food starch" is made from wheat, it will say so in the ingredients or Contains statement.  If you wonder what it is made from, email or call and ask.  I think its usually corn or potato Progresso is part of a large company.  they would not label something gluten-free unless they know it is.  Its a law in the US and Canada.    
    • Progresso soup check the label on their gluten free products, modified food starch is not gluten free.
