New Member New To Celiac Disease! in Coping with Celiac Disease Posted September 14, 2006 · Report to Admin As gfp said--be grateful for the fact that you like to cook--b/c that is a big help with a gluten-free diet!

A few items get tricky, but overall, once you get the hang of it, its not so bad. Can you give us some specific things you'd like help or ideas on?
