    Tortilla Press

    I use Bob's masa harina. The secret seems to be getting just the right amount of water in the dough - not too much, not too little, but more than I thought at first. I "fry" them on a dry pancake skillet (non-stick) - they cook up very...
  2. Eggs, beans, lentils, and things that mix up the protein well - chicken soup, salmon cakes, chili. What sort of stuff are you usually making?
  3. I just wanted to pop in and say Happy Holidays to all the wonderful people here. I know I'm not here often, but I'm glad this place is here.
  4. It gets better. 12 years of gluten free, and it's fairly rote by now. Especially if you set your house up as a safe place, and you've gathered alternative recipes and adjusted the types of food you eat, your house becomes a safe place...
  5. Yes, that could certainly have been the culprit. For what it's worth, my daughter (who doesn't have to be gluten free) must wash her hands after eating anything with wheat before she comes in contact with me (the gluten intolerant one...
  6. If they are tension headaches, the meds aren't going to help a whole lot. Massage (you can learn how to do it), stretches, plenty of sleep (hahahaha!), and heat/ice (alternated) can help. Ibuprofen (advil - which is safe) can help a bit...

    How To Decline Food?

    If I really don't want to go into anything, I just say "no thank you" and that is all. You don't have to explain, and if pressed, I would say "no thank you", followed by "really, I would not like any." I expect adults to respect another...
  8. You might also - at some point after you feel more confident about the gluten thing - look into whether or not she's getting migraines independently of the gluten. I developed chronic migraines a few years after going gluten (and dairy...
  9. Definitely NO SOAP on the pan. My MIL pretty much removed all the seasoning on my cast iron pan one year by helpfully washing it after dinner. It took a while to reseason it (per the same website that was linked a few posts above, though...

    20Ppm - Serving Size?

    As Peter explained, it's a density, not an amount. And this is why I find this "threshold" SO ridiculously annoying. What is the actual DOSAGE (quantity) that causes most people to show damage? I'm not sure that I've ever convincingly...
  11. I would find a way to try to take one Sunday off (short staffed or no), so you have a little more information before quitting.
  12. You said breastmilk - are you still eating gluten or dairy? 'Cause she can get the proteins through there.

    How Sick Can Cc Make You?

    This. You cooked with wheat flour; of course you got contaminated. My family always gets gluten free pancakes. I can do gluten free oats, so now we do oat flour pancakes, and they're awesome (and freeze well), but previously, I used Pamela...

    Gouda. I personally like a Honey Goat Gouda that Trader Joe's has here in Washington, but there are a lot of varieties of Gouda. It's a pretty smooth cheese, not too far from a more mild cheddar.
  15. Actually, I haven't been able to find a place to buy it in a couple years. Amazon doesn't have it; heck, the producer's website (amazingrains.com) doesn't even resolve any more. I don't know what happened to it! It's a little disappointing...
