answers (4)

There are tons of ones out there. I have a sister-in-law who has this allergy (also I enjoy cooking like it once in a while). I have spent alot of time on the internet googling recipies. Some things to keep in mind to alway check every ingredient and if you are not sure phone the manufactures number and ask. Some gluten-free pantry staples: gluten free all purpuse flour (or make your own with rice/potato flour), beans and lentils, rice, chickpea, soy, rice, tapioca flours, rice noodles, cornstarch, cornmeal, gluten free pastas. Things like condensed soups have wheat in them, barley, oats, malt vinegar, pretzels even some hot chocolate mixes as well as some pop (COKE products, I think) all contain gluten. Crazy what contains it but at the same time there is so much that you can do. Any recipe that needs thickened use cornstarch, substuite regular flour for gluten free in any recipe.One of my favoritve gluten-free recipes: 1 1/2 cup white rice flour, 1/2 cup soy flour, 1 tsp gluten free baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp each of allspice, nutmeg, cardamon (optional), 2 eggs, 3/4 cup chai tea concentrate, 1/2 cup liquid honey, 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt. Mix first 9 ingredients into large bowl. Mix remaining together in another bowl. Add wet to dry, stir till moistened. Batter will be thin. Fill 12 greased muffin tins. Bake @ 375 F for 20 minutes.Enjoy.
Hi, I was diagnosed gluten intolerant 7 years ago.  I found Delphi Forums - Celiac Disease On-Line Support group.  There are a lot of helpful people there and a ton of recipes.  There are more and more GF foods on the market everyday.  Good Luck!
The magazine "Living Without" has a TON of great recipes and is delivered to you monthly. Also Whole Foods has an entire gluten free section and also has goodies throughout the store as well. Most regular large chain grocery stores (including Whole Foods) have a label clearly stating under the item that it is gluten free. Changing a household diet is hard but once you get the hang of it it will be second nature.
I would consult with a registered dietitian that is knowledgeable in celiac disease/gluten intolerance.  You want to make sure the diet is adequate in nutrients and you need to come up with a plan for parties, eating out, schools, etc. as well as cross-contact in your own kitchen.
