Ice cream on Rice ChexWhen I had to go gluten free, one of the things I missed most was ice cream in a cone. I found out that ice cream on a bed of Rice Chex tastes just like eating ice cream in a cone. It has the same crunch down to the last bite. Delicious.

Does anyone one have recipes for the Celiac Diet? The more I can get the better.

There's a myriad of ways to eat GF. Start small - the bread is not that delicious, so try other things first. Like:

"Lettuce-wiches" - your favorite meat, cheese, spreads (mayo, mustard...), tomato, avocado folded into green or red leaf lettuce leaves. A bit messy, but yummy!


Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
3 c. gf flour mix (2 c. white rice flour, 2/3 c. potato starch, 1/3 c. tapioca starch)
1 1/2 t. xanthan gum
2 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa powder
2 1/4 t. baking powder
1 1/2 t. baking soda
Blend together then add
1 1/2 c. mayonnaise (egg free is fine)
1 1/2 c. HOT water
1 1/2 t. vanilla
Pour into a bundt pan, 9x13 in. cake pan or two layer cake pans and bake at 350 until it pulls from the side of the pan.

Carol Fenster and Bette Hagman have some marvelous cookbooks out there. Try eating your favorite pasta toppings on baked potatoes (alfredo is wonderful!). Eat your favorite salads (chicken or tuna) on potato or tortilla chips or rice cakes. Replace pasta sides with rice or potato sides. Fall in love with Mexican food. Nachos are GF!

I think that these ultra simple peanut butter cookies would apply:

1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup sugar

Mix well, put on ungreased cookie sheet in walnut-sized balls. Flatten slightly with fork dipped in sugar. Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes, depending on if you like your cookies soft or crunchier.


I hope that I am right that celiac and gluten free diets refer to "wheat free" recipes.

Is there a way to privately email you? Might be are some recipes I love and I use Betty Hagman's original GF flour with the white rice flour, potato starch flour, and tapioca flour blended together.



1/3 C shortening
1/2 C potato starch
1/2 C cornstarch
1/4 C GF flour mix
1 3/4 tsp Xanthan gum
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp sugar
3/4 C milk
1 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients well. Roll out onto well-floured (tapioca) suface. Cut with biscuit cutter. Bake 12-15 min. at 350.

I use this for my sandwiches. However thick you cut them though will be about the thickness of the biscuit. I have just never had luck with a "loaf" bread and I have been on a GF diet for years.


1/2 C shortening or 1 stick butter/margerine
1/2 C Baking cocoa
1 C sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 C GF four
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C chopped nut (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8 x 8 x 2 inch pan. In a medium melt shortening over low heat (or melt in microwave). Remove melted shortening from heat, add cocoa, and stir until blended. Add sugar and beat well. Add rest of ingredients, beat on medium speed. Spread in pan and bake 20-25 minutes or until inserted knife come out clean.


Im not positive about the time to bake on this, is torn off, but just start checking them around 15 mins. They are SO good.


Good luck

My mother was recently diagnosed as being "gluten intolerant". This is making a huge difference in the foods she is allowed to eat.

Does anyone know of a cookbook or website that would make finding suitable recipes easier?

I was diagnosed with non-Celiac gluten intolerance, which basically means I am allergic to gluten. I'm relieved to learn this disease is treatable without medication; however, I have to remove all forms of gluten from my diet.

Would anyone out there in "Thriftyfun World" be able to supply me with some basic gluten-free recipes? Mainly bread, or any meal ideas, I'm totally stumped. I recently ate oatmeal with fruit and was violently ill for 3 days (full of gluten), help!

I am cooking for someone with celiac's disease and casein intolerance. I was wondering if someone had any luck with cooking for the aforementioned situation. I know my son's fiancé has had trouble making banana bread. I went through an entire box of gluten-free flour trying to make homemade noodles; 1 c. flour, 1 egg, 2 tsp salt, and 2 tbsp. milk. I substituted almond milk for the recipe as well as using gluten-free flour, eggs were extra-large instead of my usual jumbo.
