    How Do I Stop Being So Generous?

    My kids like to try my gluten free cookies and waffles. Mostly I say no and don't feel to bad about although I do share sometimes. Most of the time they think it tastes strange and don't like it anyway but sometimes they really like it...
  2. Didn't lose a pound! But I was a bit overweight before and still am although weight watchers is now helping with that.

    Artisanal Gluten-Free Cupcakes:

    I took a bunch to work because I had NO self control on these and no one would have known they were gluten free if I hadn't told them. Ok, I tried to add the link but it got all wonky and when I check it it said "company name removed...

    Artisanal Gluten-Free Cupcakes:

    Pretty sure it's the same people but different book. This one is all cupcakes and has a cupcake on the cover. Is it ok to post a link?
  5. I bought this book on Saturday and finally had time (and ingredients) to make a batch of cupcakes. I am in heaven, I just made the snickerdoodle cupcakes and used store bought vanilla icing. The texture and flavor are wonderful! I don...
  6. Thank you everyone for your replies. I know what you mean but long term I can't afford to stay here. Plus my family is wonderful and I want my kids to grow up closer to their family. I love Oklahoma and am going to stay with my parents...
  7. Bubbas mom I wondered the same thing and after confirming it for myself the hard way i can say Yes, you do have to watch for contamination. However, I don't worry about handling the dog food or if there is gluten in my shampoo. But I do...
  8. I feel your pain and feel free to vent away. I work in a hospital too (office job though) and have seen the junk food people bring to work. I have finally come to the realization after 6 months of eating gluten-free that I am going to have...
  9. I haven't posted in a while but since having found out in January that I have Celiac I have been coping ok. But last month while on a field trip with my daughters 5th grade class (2 days before school let out for the summer) my husband...
  10. Amen and well said zus888. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, it was hard for me to come to terms with too but it but it does get easier. And it could be a lot worse. I know that sucks to hear people saying that (I was kind of angry...
  11. Are you saying you ate gluten and then got abdominal pain? Or you have been off gluten and having pain? I get terrible pain (along with gas, bloating, many trips to bathroom), but it was the pain that finally made me go to the doc. I...

    Poll- How Tall Are You?

    5' 6 and a 1/2. Just recently diagnosed at age 42.
  13. Pain is really the only reason I gave in and went to my doc finally. What a bunch of baloney from him.
  14. Welcome and I am so sorry to hear about your health problems. It sounds like your doc is on top of things though. I know it really stinks right now while you are getting used to it but the good news is that at least with Celiac you...
  15. Gluten free pasta (sam mills corn pasta) with Prego pasta sauce and cut up italian sausge in it. Peas even the kids ate it and liked it.
