OK - all you dieters please cover your eyes, but I always wanted to try making a gluten-free French Silk Pie and I did it over the weekend. Turned out great (it's long gone by now) and was much easier than I thought!

Yay!!!!! Thank you so much for posting, my family will love it! I can't wait lol I just love this thread!

You're welcome, caselynn! I'll be looking forward to hearing how yours turns out. I love this thread, too...however, my hips do not!!! laugh.gif

Please note that I added an edit to the recipe I posted after contacting Annalise last evening about the sinking blueberries.

And if you make this, make sure you use the right size pan so you don't end up with a 1" high cake. I did use a Kugelhoph pan.

You KNOW Annalise Roberts? And you didn't tell me?? and you're on a first name basis? Cool!

hey, tell her my lemon bars were a hit--but that you have to dust them with confectionery sugar in the back seat of your car.

Gotta love a woman who even HAS a Kugelhoph pan!!!!!!!

I betcha LOVE2TRAVEL has one, too.

Nope, I don't know Annalise but most cookbook authors can be reached and she responded quickly to my question. Sorry to disappoint you. tongue.gif

I only have a Kugelhoph pan because I took a cake decorating class when I was pregnant with my daughter and made doll cakes for her when she was little. I bet L2T has far more fancy schmancy pans than I do!!!

Lucky!! My Mom never made doll cakes.... :( waaaa.

when I come to visit, will you make me one?

For dessert we are having:

fresh blueberries

and the new ice cream maker is still in the box (we wore the old one out years ago)

We are on diets. :)

Of course I'll make one for you...never mind that I haven't made one for 40 years! Hahaha

Oh wait...I can't do that as I threw out the doll years ago...it was getting kind of ratty.

Fresh fruit is still my favorite dessert...although I still have a couple of pieces of Lemon-Blueberry Pound Cake left that will be eaten until the last crumb is gone. biggrin.gif

P.S. What kind of a diet are you on? The seafood diet...you see food and you eat it? laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

(groan) Oh NO, you didn't say that....arrgh!! that's my Mom's joke. And it's not funny when she says it either. :huh::P

She also used to tease us with this nugget when we were kids:

We'd ask "what's for dessert?" and she'd say "DESERT the table!".

(groan) Geesh, my Mom was kinda mean, now that I think about it.

I'm gonna call her right now and tell her!

(ahem, obviously, I got my sense of humor from my Dad.)

I melted about 3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips with a Tbsp of heavy cream (milk works just as well). Meanwhile I crunched up some gluten-free pretzels.

Two scoops of vanilla ice cream placed in the bowl of melted chocolate + gluten-free pretzels + a scant handful of cashew pieces = YUM.

My desserts have been somewhat curtailed, since I'm on Weight Watchers. However I have found that Jello brand sugar free/fat free puddings made with skim milk are great with fresh fruit. Stir some blueberries into the vanilla, peaches with butterscotch and strawberries with chocolate. So far I've lost 16 pounda and have 20 more to go!

GREAT IDEA AND CONGRATS!! :D

I was terribly bad last night. We had pumpkin pie shakes. With the evenings cooling off we were just starting to feel fall in the air and couldn't help ourselves. Not to fear though, we totally put flax in them so they were practically healthy! I'll tell my hips that too. :ph34r:

I would like to perk up this thread. Since the holidays are here why don't we post our holiday desserts that we might only make at this time of year.

This is one of my favorites that I make and give as a gift and keep one for myself.

Pumpkin Bread

9x5 in loaf pan

350 oven

Sift together

1 3/4 C AP flour (add xanthan gum if your mix doesn't have it)

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (I grind my own and make sure to leave some chunky bits)

Beat until light and fluffy

1 1/3 cup sugar (I use Demerara)

1/3 cup soft shortening or butter

2 eggs

beat in

1 cup cooked or canned pumpkin

Add dry to wet in 3 additions alternating with

1/3 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Do not over beat.

Fold in

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup chopped dates

Bake in greased pan about one hour.

This bread freezes really well and is delicious cut in thick slices and warmed with ice cream or whipped cream on top.

Sora, thanks for thinking of this thread - I had forgotten! Not having dessert tonight but I am making the best chocolate chunk cookies on the planet tomorrow for my massage therapist. She practically begged me for them last week.

    • Yes I eliminated high glycemic foods. Eating only small amounts of carbs. No fruits, added sugars, starchy grains. Eating lots of fibrous veggies. Eating olive oil, as I don’t seem to tolerate the saturated fats or MCT oil. Allergic to nuts and seeds unfortunately.
    • Just wondering if you have an update at all? Going through the same thing at the the moment with my type 1 14 yr old. I would be interested to know what your gi said and how your daughters doing now? xx
    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!
