Update, Upon Request

I… am 30 weeks pregnant. After a short detour into Whatever-Will-Stay-Down Land, I am back off gluten. I have to say, I eat so much healthier now.

SuperDad… is, for the first time ever, actually giving gluten-free living a real try. Go SuperDad! 

E… On March 11th, she will celebrate 4 years off of gluten!  Wow!  Where does the time go?  School lunch was our biggest challenge recently. She packs her lunch every day. She either has leftovers (GF spaghetti, GF mac & cheese, and soup are some of her faves) or PB & J* (as of now, her school still allows peanut butter), along with fruit (grapes, sometimes applesauce), and yogurt or string cheese. I was worried, but things have gone really well. She's old enough now (almost 6) that she knows what she can have, and what she can't.

D… Is almost 4. He recently had very minor surgery to put in ear tubes. He hasn't ever had an ear infection, but he had lost almost all of his hearing due to trapped fluid. After a 7-minute surgery, he's good as new!

Miss Baby M… Is 17 months old.  She has no idea what is about to happen to her life about 10 weeks from now!  She has never had gluten.

*I don't know that I've ever shared it, so below you will find our very best ever gluten-free bread recipe, the result of much fine tuning.

Glad to see your post and that everyone is doing well. Yay for SuperDad going GF... it makes life so much easier if everyone eats the same!

Can't wait to hear about your newest arrival in a couple months!

30 weeks already? Time flies!

Glad to hear Super Dad is giving the GF life a try. Hope it goes well. :)

Where exactly do you buy xanthan gum? I was watching a cooking show on tv last week, she was making a GF recipe of some sort, she's also an organic cook... she had the xanthan gum in it and I wouldn't have a clue where to buy it.

Good luck in the next 10 weeks! Hope you are feeling well!

Ah... xanthan gum. Definitely a staple in EVERY gluten free kitchen! You can find it in the "natural foods" section of almost every supermarket these days, or anywhere that has a gluten free foods section. It's expensive, but you get a lot and use just the tiniest amount. I've never understood why they don't sell it in smaller quantities.

HI there, I'm dairy free as well as wheat free, what would you reccommend for the dry milk substitute? I have a soy milk maker so can make my own milk to what ever thickness I require, should I do that rather than the milk powder and water?

Tenille said...

Hi Frank! I've had good luck using rice milk in place of the dry powder and the equivalent of water, but I'm sure soy would be fine too!
