  1. Hi everyone, I have not posted in quite awhile, but I thought I'd share that I found gluten free cheese ravioli next to the other refrigerated ravioli at Costco! I sampled it in the store and it was very good. I have not made it at home...
  2. I bookmarked a link to the recipe topic, but the link is broken! I would really like to make these for dinner tonight, but I can't find the recipe and I am out of time to search for it. Could someone please re-post the recipe. I would...
  3. I normally don't ask many questions like this..but I don't know where to start. We are going camping this weekend and we would like to make beef stroganoff. When we have made it in the past we used a mix, but I can't remember the names...
  4. I've tried a couple of her recipes that I have come across on different gluten-free blogs. Her cheese cracker and cinnamon rolls are amazing! I was just thinking about trying to find her book on amazon!
  5. Where can I find these delicious crusts?
  6. I have bought the Kinnikinnick buns and I have made my own. Both of them would not hold up to a hot dog. They were crumbly and they broke. I did use the home made one a few days after I made them and they had been refrigerated. Does...
  7. I have studied celiac disease, and I want to share this article with you. The only thing that it does not cover is how gluten makes it through the tight gap junctions of the small intestine. The article focuses on immunology. http...
  8. I have not posted in a long time, but I thought that I would come here to share my recent experience. My son was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago based on clinical symptoms and blood work. When he went gluten-free all of his...

    Gluten-Free Elephant Ears?

    We use pie crust and sprinkle it generously with cinnamon and sugar. It's surprising how much it takes! It's not quite like the fried version, but I guess that you could try putting a thick coating of oil on the cookie sheet if you...
  10. I called Ghirardelli today because I have read a couple of different places that they now produce a crispy milk chocolate bar (with barley ) on the same lines as their bar chocolates. I'm sad to say that it is true. All of their bar...
  11. Add me to the list! My son's diapers were like that before he was diagnosed with celiac disease and placed on a gluten free diet. They looked like light tan sand with occasional mucous. I think that was a result of malabsorption. I would...

    Donating Blood/Plasma?

    Yes, you can donate blood products. It's a great thing to do for others.
  13. I just thought that I'd add that vitamin D deficiency is very common. I work in a hospital laboratory and nearly every patient we test is vitamin D deficient. A tech tested her own blood, and she too was deficient even though she takes...

    Need A Doctor For Child In Oregon

    Dr. Terry is great! She's also recommended by GIG. If you think something else is going on with your kiddo, try going to the pediatrician I listed. She has no problems referring you to a specialist. I was concerned about my son's growth...

    Need A Doctor For Child In Oregon

    Doernbecher Children's Hospital has some great doctors. This is my son's pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Terry: http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/health/services/providers/terrya.cfm This is his pediatrician. She is great and really takes...
  16. Bob's Red Mill gluten free oats are grown separate from wheat, processed by wheat-free equipment on the field, transported and stored separate from wheat, and processed in a separate factory. BRM goes through a lot of effort to ensure the...
  17. 1. Would an Ig A deficiency cause me to not react on an allergy panel, or to have a delayed reaction to the testing? No, allergy panels are based off of IgE antibodies. IgA bodies are mainly found in the gut, saliva, tears, and milk...
  18. The tests that were run were for tissue transglutaminase antibodies, for both IgG and IgA antibody classes. Both of the tests are for celiac disease. You did not post any tests regarding antibody deficiency. A test for IgA deficiency...
  19. I would not worry about it. 2.2 is far from the upper reference limit of 10. Most doctors would not consider it significant. But there's nothing wrong with repeating the blood work periodically along with you diabetes monitoring. If...

    Thanks! I guess that I was distracted by the bright blue buttons near by!

    I can't figure out how to "view all new posts!" I don't have the time to go through each category to look for topics of interest.
  22. I thought of your post yesterday while I was at Lingonberries and found Udi's products! They had Udi frozen bread, pizza crusts, muffins, and some other products. Lingonberries is a fantastic little market in Vancouver, Washington that...
  23. I have Expandex but I don't notice a difference between Expandex and tapioca starch. You will be fine if you just use tapioca starch, and you will also save yourself a lot of money too!
  24. I have bought Expandex a couple of times, but I really don't notice a difference when I use it in place of tapioca starch/flour. In fact I still even have some Expandex, but I never bother to grab it when I'm baking. I think it is a...
