And MsMofet the MUFFINS are gluten free - the carrots and bananas are naturally that way.

Sorry, but in my house this is no laughing matter.
so sorry

between autism and celiac disease. gluten sensitivity that isn't related
to celiac disease is basically a food allergy.
but no, your ears won't fall off!!
Oh good; my wife says my ears are cute.
Well, I must not have the "celiac disease", since I have been baking with gluten for years.

Thank you very much for really explaining what Celiac disease. Is it a wide spread problem. Sorry for you husband. Having anything off-kilter with the digestive system is a real bummer.

Sorry, as I was not making light or fun of the disease. I was just not familiar with it.

funny you should mention the sweet bread! I posted an ISO request
the other day and got a recipe for it. I made it last night and it turned
out awesome! check for the thread in the bread forum.

Thanks to you and MsMoffet for your apologies. I must apologize as well if I sounded a bit harsh. Being trained in special diets and dealing with my family members and clients on a regular basis just brings it all too close to home for me. And yes, we do need to bring some fun into serious matters. I know you meant no harm.

Ella, your descriptions of celiac and the "disease of the month" reputation are spot on. But I am so thankful to see that restaurants, magazines and supermarkets are becoming more educated and offering more products, recipes and information on celiac, lactose intolerance and other digestive problems, as well as diabeties.

I made some "chocolate chunk shortbread bars" out of my new "Diabetic Desserts" cookbook which is accredited by the Canadian Diabetic Association for my Dad last night. He was so happy because he misses his sweets (specially cookies and chocolate) and it contained no artificial sweeteners and yet fit into his exchanges.

I am so happy when I can bake for my men!

I just wanted to add that I am not dissing anyone who has a diagnosed
condition such as celiac or food allergies, diabetes, etc. I know that
this is real and can be deadly. my problem is with the quacks and the
people who diagnose themselves, and the mentality that people get
when a condition starts getting a lot of press. people who suddenly
think "I am always flatulent!! I must have such-and-such disease!!"
please.

it is awesome that more and more information and warnings are out
there for those who really ARE ill. my friends kid can die if he even
gets a microscopic whiff of peanut dust. stuff like this is no joke.
celiac disease, untreated, destroys the small intestine and releases
toxins into the body at the very least. at the worst your guts just
start to hemorrage and you die. again, no joke. but hypochondriacs
truly annoy.
I feel for you for your husband. what a drag. but as you said, there
are more and more options, so in that case too much press isn't a bad
thing.

and in keeping with the thread, today I am doing something with a
couple pints of fresh blueberries, don't know what yet, and some
chocolate-chip cookies so far. might as well crank out some baking
while this unseasonably LOVELY, humidity-free cool weather holds.

no need to appologize to me sweetie!! i deal with food problems also due to stomach problems and migraines. did you know fermented food bring on migrines? i eat the food anyway though and deal with it because i refuse to give up cheese, vinegar, wine and bread to name a few things. i PAY dearly sometimes but i am stupid and have to deal with it till i can't any more!! and how can you ask an italian to give up spices and GARLIC!!?? compared to my friend who has Krones and can't eat ANY veggie or fiber not even a SPEC!! i call myself lucky i only need to deal with my problems!! again i am sorry i didn't mean to make light.

but like people who laugh at tragic events to deal with them i try to use humor in the same way and everyone please uderstand THAT is how i DEAL with sad or tragic things. please take no offence in my words just slap me so i know i did something wrong.
