  1. This is a recipe I got off of Allrecipes.com. All I did was substitute the flour, baking powder and salt called for in the recipe with Pamela's Baking Mix. It turned out fantastic. 6 tablespoons butter, melted 3/4 cup brown sugar 6-8 slices of canned pineapple, depending on how you arrange them in the pan Mix the melted butter and the brown sugar in an 8 inch square cake pan. Arrange the pineapple slices on top of the brown sugar mixture in the pan. Can also add half of a marachino cherry to the center of each pineapple slice if desired. 3 eggs, separated 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup Pamela's Baking Mix 1/2 cup milk 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 teaspoon almond extract In large bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar to the egg whites, beating continuously until stiff peaks form. In another bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Add the baking mix, milk, melted butter and almond extract. Mix until well blended. Fold the egg whites into the flour mixture, mixing just until blended. Spread evenly in pan and bake in 325 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes and invert onto serving plate. Serve with whipped cream and enjoy!
  2. I was diagnosed as having a vitamin D deficiency as well and I'm now taking 2000mg a day of vitamin D. I know I would have a vitamin D deficiency even if I didn't have a gluten intolerance problem (not diagnosed as celiac, just a high IgG number so no damage to my intestines). I've read that the vast majority of people in this country are deficient in vitamin D because of our fear of the sun. We've been told for so many years to avoid the sun like the plague and since the only way our bodies can make vitamin D is through sun exposure...well you do the math. Anyway, I wouldn't worry that the low vitamin D level is a sign of malabsorption...just my opinion though.
  3. Ok, so I thought I'd see what all the hype is about and try this recipe for myself. Mind you, I've only been eating gluten-free since the middle of December (so I still remember what wheat bread tastes like) and am amazed at how much this bread tastes like regular wheat bread. It only took about 50 minutes to rise to the top of the pan and then got nice and high in the oven...I was afraid it might fall once I took it out and it did just a bit, but not enough to make a difference. The only problem is, I forgot to put in the salt! So it does taste a bit flat...I might try to make it into bread pudding or something and make another loaf tomorrow for sandwiches. All in all though I'm very satisfied with the way it turned out and don't see the need to experiment with any other recipes.
  4. Does anyone have a TNT chocolate chip cookie recipe? I always make the one on the Nestle choc. chip cookie package and I like them to turn out sort of flat and chewy. I don't like a cake like cookie at all so does anyone have a gluten-free toll house cookie recipe that is similar to the original one? Thanks!
  5. Thanks for updating us Klay....glad it wasn't too terribly uncomfortable for you. Hopefully it will help you conceive and then you can be updating us about your pregnancy!
  6. Hi, I had the "dye" test several years ago after having had two ectopic pregnancies (both in the same fallopian tube). The doc wanted to check to see if the other fallopian tube was clear. Anyway, I wasn't given any pain meds during the procedure, was just told to take a couple of extra strength OTC pain meds a couple of hours before I went in. The test was VERY painful for me (I was told this was caused by the dye being pushed through the tiny fallopian tube)....but thankfully the pain only lasted 30 seconds to a minute. I hope that you will be given some valium or something before they start the procedure. I don't want to scare you, just give you a warning that it can be painful and if your dr. says,"oh, the pain is similar to period cramping", don't believe them! Ask for some pain meds before they start! The test didn't help me get pregnant, although I have heard that this happens sometimes...if you have a blockage in the tube the dye being pushed through it can clear the blockage out. But no worries, we subsequently have gone on to adopt four beautiful children from Korea so everything turned out as it should be. Good luck with the test and I hope you find the answers that you need.
  7. Can the Pamela's mix be used like you would Bisquick? I looked on the Pamelas website and they have recipes for waffles, pie crusts, biscuits, that kind of thing, but I'm wondering if it can be used in main dish meals. I've never used Bisquick before but I know there are lots of recipes out there for things like cheeseburger pie, ect. Anyone have any ideas on how to sub the Pamelas mix for the Bisquick? Thanks!
  8. Hi All, I'm new here....been perusing the board for a few weeks and decided to jump on in. I'd like to try this recipe as the various gluten-free breads I've purchased at the store have been less than satisifying. I looked in the fridge and see that I only have two eggs....would sour cream work as a replacement for the two egg whites? If not, what else would work to replace the egg whites? I'm in the mood to bake today so any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Deb
  9. Hey Tim, I'm not sure which beer you're wanting to try, but I know that Whole Foods carries New Grist as I just bought some there last weekend. I'm not a big beer drinker by any means but every so often I'll have a taste for one so I thought I'd give it at try. I can't tell you what it tastes like though as I haven't had one yet, lol. I've got a couple in the fridge and will have one tonight. I'll let you know how I like it. Take care,
  10. Hi Tanya, I'm new to all of this as well...was just diagnosed last month by a Naturopathic Dr. This was after going to several regular MD's over the years with my gastro complaints only to be diagnosed with IBS and GERD (btw, my GERD is completely GONE since going gluten-free, something I consider to be nothing short of a miracle). Anyway, I'm so glad I went to the Naturopath as I would have never thought that gluten was my problem and clearly my family doctor hadn't ever thought to test me for it. I do plan, however, to contact my regular MD and get a referral from her for a registered dietician. I'm not sure how well versed a Naturopathic Dr. would be in the gluten-free diet. A dietician can help you with meal plans ect. based on what kinds of foods you like to eat and your lifestyle. I don't think a Naturopath would be able to do these things for you. Sorry this got long but I'm just still so amazed at the change in my health since going gluten-free and the fact that none of the dr's I went to in the past had ever thought to test me for gluten intolerance.
