  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Blue Diamond Nut Thins. I can eat 'em by the box. Toasted corn tortillas with cheese. We just found Kinikinnick pizza crusts -- I can haz pizza!

    2009 Gig Conference Planning

    Questions I've had (don't know if they'd be covered under other topics): The gluten-free kitchen: What has to be changed? How do you prevent cross-contamination? Talking about gluten: How to convince your first degree relatives to...

    Wow, People Really Don't Get It...

    I gotta confess, my family jokes about cross-contamination. We call it "Cross-Contamination: The Glutening", like it was a cheesy monster movie on the Sci-Fi Channel (I try to do the Don LaFontaine voice, but I'm a bit too... female for...

    Do You Cheat?

    I'm here for my pat on the back: friends came over for dinner last night and brought my absolute favorite french bread (and some pretty good beer) and I passed on both of them. Yay, me!

    Celiac But No Horrible Symptoms

    Another anemic here; had the endoscopy to look for internal bleeding, found celiac instead. I didn't think I had symptoms, until I noticed how much less gas 'n' bloating I had...

    Depression Post gluten-free Diet?

    Three cheers, two thumbs up, and a pat on the back for flutterby!
  8. I'm another anemic celiac... 1) My low # so far has been 9. I can't imagine what 4.9 feels like. Wowzers. 2) I am a very lucky nerd; it was the hematologist/oncologist who sent me to the gastroenterologist for the endoscopy after...
  9. I like this equation. Right now I'm getting a feeling of control over my situation by working on the cross contamination thing. Hopefully it doesn't kick over into a full-blown obsession.

    Second Hand Breadmaker

    I'm calling dibs on the entire toaster oven, 'cause I'm mean like that. (Also, I can put my toast on aluminum foil as an added barrier against the dreaded cross contamination.) The toaster's at least 20 years old; I'm not going to try to...

    Second Hand Breadmaker

    Y'know, I was going to ask that, too... I'll break it to him gently. edit to add: um, will we have to get a new crock pot, too? Dang, this dx is getting spendy...
  12. My husband just called me at work, he found a Regal Kitchenpro K6773 breadmaker at a yard sale for $1.00... but it doesn't have a manual. The internets have been very uncooperative; any ideas where I could find a manual? Thanks!
  13. Ack, I didn't think of the microwave. I'm in a small department, we only share what we want to share. I may have a celiac moment* the first time somebody brings donuts, though... *that's what I'm calling the "cry like Lucille Ball...
  14. Thanks. I'm feeling better now that I've clorox-d everything within touching distance of my desk. (Okay, not the whiteboard or the monitors.) I'm only a bit of a control freak, really... Since my husband is VERY supportive, and does...
