- Gluten Free Mom
- I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

Glutened at PF Changs :(
My mom took my entire family out to a wonderful meal at PF Chang's last night. I ordered gluten free lettuce wraps, gluten free egg drop soup and gluten free chicken fried rice - I mean why not, it was my birthday dinner. Everyone shared the lettuce wraps and soup, at that point there was nothing on our table that contained gluten. We finished the appetizers and the meals came out, mine first and it was delivered as "gluten free fried rice" by the server. I was fine for about an hour after we ate, then right in the middle of an amazing foot rub from my husband I had to go get sick... for an hour. I'm making myself yogurt and fruit shakes today to make sure I don't get the lovely side effects I usually do after eating gluten, hopefully it works. I have no clue how I got gluten, I must assume someone thought they made a gluten free dish but used gluten by mistake. This type of sick was more than just a crumb, it was empty your body now lady type of sick :( I have a nasty backache this morning but otherwise am fine. Oddly enough I got a pounding headache right after I ate, but I thought it was just because the restaurant was loud. Now I'm thinking it was the warning light coming on... ugh. No more PF Chang yummies for me :( I'm running out of restaurants I can eat at!!!!
