  1. I got their chili once and felt sick afterwards (and that's supposed to be safe!) However, I have the Butterfingers Concrete and it doesn't bother me.
  2. Thanks! I have a mix I keep in my pantry along with a xantham gum measurement guide I got off of here. I'm going to give it a try tomorrow when my sisters come over to back cookies! Thanks!
  3. I have my aunt's Kolacky recipe (polish cookie) and would love to make it this year. I would like to use gluten-free flour, but not sure if it would work: 1pkg. yeast (dry or small cake) 9 tblsp. milk or cream 1 tsp. vanilla 3 egg yolks 3 C sifted flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1 C Crisco Shortening sugar fruit filling The recipe calls to use sugar when rolling out the dough instead of flour, so that's a plus! Other than that, would I be able to use a gluten-free flour blend in place of flour? Thanks!
  4. I realize this is after-the-fact, but I made a pumpkin pie using Whole Foods Bakehouse frozen pie crust (it comes in a package of two) and it turned out AWESOME!! If it wasn't for the fact I was eating the pie, my family wouldn't have believed it was gluten-free! Whole Foods also had a recipe for pie crust that was really good - flakey and actually had a taste to it - but I'm not sure if it's still on their website. When I have a chance, I'll post it on the Forum.
  5. OK, so I started bringing out my Fall decorations and now I'm getting my usual annual craving for candy corn! Brach's used to be the only brand I really liked and realize that they can't guarantee it's gluten-free. I checked the history for this topic and the latest it's been brought up was about 2 years ago. Does anyone know if anything's changed? I live in the Midwest - what brand of cc is just as good as Brach's but safe to eat? Thanks! Laura
  6. OK, I'd hate to see Donna carted off because she's been talking to herself ! I placed my order (and thank you, Donna, I probably would have taken my time mulling over what to do about a bronzer, but your post about the specials kinda helped me make my decision sooner!) and I decided to go with the Soft Bronzer and Summer Silk Dust. I figure if either of these are too dark I can always mix them with something lighter! That's the beauty of EM!!
  7. I have a question about bronzers! Summer's coming and I will be getting a little tanner than I am now. I see that EM sells bronzers - has anyone tried them? I have light to fair skin so I don't need anything really dark, just something to give me a little color. Thanks! Laura
  8. Well, the good news is that Mimi's opened up near my house. The bad news is they're not offering a gluten-free menu ! With Cheeseburger in Paradise and Biaggios in the same shopping center and both offering gluten-free menus, you'd think they'd follow suit ! Well, I'm going to write a letter to the manager to complain!!
  9. I take Kyo-Dophilus every day. I can't feel - or tell - that it's working. My doctor recommends that I take a probiotic, so I do. I trust him and from what I read about probiotics, it's probably helping me more than I think.
  10. I plan on going to Chevy's this weekend and was wondering if anyone's been there recently. Is there anything I should stay away from? Thanks!
  11. I was never a heavy drinker and now I drink even less. Wine sometimes gives me migraines and swollen fingers (I believe from the sulfites) and beer - well, unless I'm at a restaurant that serves gluten-free beer (which is rare to never) - I drink that usually at home.
  12. That's good to know!! I thought only Brown Cow was gluten-free and that brand is hard to find in my area. Before going gluten-free, I loved the Yoplait whips!! Yippee!! I can have some yogurt now!!
  13. I just made this yesterday and it's WONDERFUL!! I had to go on a treasure hunt for some of the ingredients, but it's worth the time!! Yes, increase the bake time because mine did come out a little raw - and I used a 9" springform pan!
  14. Costco has wonderful gluten-free items. Mrs. Mays Trio Bars are also great. Franceen's list is great because there are so many other items that are already gluten-free.
  15. I have all my flours in their own shelf in our pantry. I have all my utensils in a container. I have my own toaster which is kept in a cabinet and taken out only when I use it. If I'm making a sandwich, I just use my plate to prepare it. I'm the only gluten-free out of a family of 4 - so I don't trust the counters no matter how much I wipe them down. I have two young kids who are just not careful.
