  1. Check to see if there are sulfites in the cider. I have never had Harpoon cider either because it isn't available by me or it contains sulfites. Since going gluten-free anything with sulfites gets me. Strongbow is great and not sickly sweet.
  2. Thanks!!!! I goggled before posting. Bailey's mobile site didn't have that info!
  3. Is Bailey's Vanilla Cinnamon gluten free? Someone gave me a bottle. I have never had a problem with whiskey, but I am not sure what else is in it. Thanks!
  4. Late response here, but thanks everyone for you thoughts! Endoscopy was today and it sounds like the pathology report is only a formality at this point. Poor kid. But, I appreciate the comments above that maybe all this crap I have and my family has is due to lifelong celiac crap. I definitely happy that my kid may escape some of this. Ugh.
  5. My 6 year old daughter had a "we think the random once-every-few-months-hives are from food allergies but let's test this first" celiac panel that came back "overwhelmingly positive". Her appointment with the GI doctor is tomorrow. Background - I was diagnosed with celiac last year when they were throwing a bunch of tests at me to diagnose a weird symptom (that, it turns out, is not celiac because after over a year being gluten free it hasn't resolved, but that is another issue). So, neither me or my daughter have any symptoms of celiac. NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL. I don't have a copy of her test results yet. I also don't have the results of my original tests (even after numerous attempts to get them). But, I did have a positive result from an endoscopy. Because I am an adult and have food control issues anyway, I took my diagnoses and didn't ask a lot of questions. But now I want to know! I want to know why neither of us have any symptoms! And, more importantly, I want to know if this could possibly be misdignosed and be something else. Part of my questions are because I don't want my daughter to have to deal with the gluten free stuff, I admit that. But the other part is that due to some really bad genetics, my kid is succeptible to a host of crappy diseases in the future. If it at all possible that this is NOT celiac I want to know what it IS. I don't her to spend her life not eating gluten only to find out that whatever is causing these tests to be positive is something else that we could have treated and saved her from future disease. Does this make sense? Anyway, I am just wondering if there is a resource or list of questions to ask the doctor. Or if anyone has any other thoughts or ideas on what to ask? Thanks!
  6. Nuts! My kid won't go to a play date unless there are pistachios.
  7. Squacos - squash tacos. Roasted squash, can black beans, avocado, salsa, corn tortillas. Also great with sweet potatoes. Bowl of quinoa, left over veggies, salsa, avocado Hummus and veggies wrapped on swiss chard wrap Salad! Soup
  8. I bought some organic pumpkin in a can at Whole Foods and it was terrible!!!!!!! We usually love pumpkin pie in this house and we all only had one slice and it is rotting in the fridge (normal recipe). It is Libby's for me for now on.
  9. I have asked the "waiters" at these events for a special meal (lunch and dinners) and have always been given something. This is when I was just vegetarian and not gluten-free. I travel a lot a s bring a ton of food. For breakfast I usually heat up a cereal of quinoa flakes and add freeze dried strawberries. Plus fruit from the grocery and nuts. Lots of soup heated up in the microwave. I always have 1 or 2 gluten-free Go Picnic boxes with me too. Normally don't eat processed foods, but sometimes it is the only notion.
  10. Thanks. I don't have bread butts (ha!). I haven't had bread for a long time (pre-celiac). Anyone else? Want to make a nut loaf.
  11. Breadcrumbs? What is the best bet?
  12. We have a local meadery. I bought a bottle, it was expensive. And, I guess I just didn't get it. Do you drink like wine? Or make mixed drinks?
  13. Oh! Thanks! The milk in the white russian always kept me away from the whole "russian" genre.
  14. Thanks! I have nev er seen the La Messagere. I think that New Planets "IPA" is pretty good, but I am just not a fan of IPAs. Their ale is terrible! I am not a fan of Bards. I am pretty sure that I am not going to find anything to beat a Guiness!
  15. I know! This is why I try to stick to thai food when I am out by myself, no soy sauce. However, my husband and kid would never go to thai.
  16. OHHh! I have to try that! I love apricot nectar, but don't drink it often. My mom would give that to us when we were sick as kids. She also gave us blackberry brandy, but that is a different story. I wonder if blackberry brandy is gluten free....
  17. I am now a recovering beer drinker (seriously, gluten free beer blows, sorry) and looking for some good - and easy to make - drinks. I have found a few ciders to be OK, but most aren't really my favorite (and those with added flavors give me a headache)! What are your favorite drinks? Here are mine so far.. - Hot Whiskey with Powers Irish Whiskey (best winter drink, Powers is triple distilled and there are no gluten ingredients in their mash (according to their website). - Salty Dog with Ciroc Vodka - Grapefruit and vodkawith a salted rim. Ciroc is a grape vodka, so totally gluten-free, and my favorite! - for the beer connoisseur, the most amazing cider/beer replacement I have found is Spire Mountain Dark and Dry Apple Cider! Unfortunately it is not available in the midwest, where I live. Anyone else want to share?
  18. I am doing a lot of googling on my phone for things like "skittles gluten free" or "tootsie rolls gluten free" ('tis the season for candy, I guess). Is there an app or something easier?
  19. Thanks Everyone! I am a big fan of Chipotle, but looking for other places. I haven't found a noodle place that will work except a local-ish place that will make things specifically for me, but my 5 year old isn't a fan.
  20. Look at the Vega brand. They are all dairy, gulten, and soy free. Most are no added sugar.
  21. Anyone else struggling with gluten-free and vegetarian in restaurants? I travel frequently for work and as much as I try to bring my own food, it is not always that easy. Yesterday after some unexpectedly long appointments, I tried to eat at Pei Wei because they have a gluten free menu. I just about ordered one of their gluten-free sauces with veggies and I look on their nutritional analysis and the veggie version is not gluten-free. HUH? [hind sight, perhaps it is the tofu in the tofu+veggie that isn't gluten-free, but still, annoying.] Anyone have a great "go to" veggie + gluten-free restaurant that has other options beside salad?
