thank you for the ideas. I am always looking for good magazines or cookbooks, and it's great to hear from folks who use them and know which ones are good. I will definitely look for that magazine...I've never seen it before.

I saw Udi's bread when we were at a local health food store, but i didn't get any. She doesn't really eat much bread, but if I can sneak it in on the rest of the family, then it makes life all the way around a little easier.

I hadn't thought about the tax idea...but I will definitely look into it. I was hoping there was some way to get a break on this, since it is really expensive to have to shop this way. Thanks again!

I have been GF for 2yrs so I feel for you and your family. I haven't tried any pie crusts yet but Delight Magazine has a lot of great ideas for the holidays! They also list out other allergens other than gluten so that might be a great resource for your family.

On a different topic, have you tried Udi's at all? I was dying for bread for months until someone told me about them. Costs more than regular bread but worth the $$. Just not sure about the other allergens so you will need to read the labels.

Also, talk to a professional about your taxes and how you can save $ due to buying foods for medical issues. Hopefully that will help you get $ back on your taxes. Good luck!

I have been too lazy to experiment with GF pie crusts so I just make pumpkin pie crust-less.

Thanks. I am trying to find a good pie crust recipe so that I can make my pumpkin pie. Wonder if they make a sugar free caramel sauce??

There are gluten free oats (oats are naturally gluten free but are often contaminated during processing). Trader Joes has some delicious and cheap brown rice pasta that I love for easy meals (there are others, ex. Tinkyada). Sauces can be thickened with corn starch or xanthan gum rather than flour. There is a large a variety of gluten free flours out there is you like to bake, and even some cake and brownie mixes. For Thanksgiving I am going to make a pumpkin pie, so I don't get left out of dessert. Lunches can be challenging if kids are used to sandwiches, but there are GF breads that are pretty good but they are pricey. The hardest part for your daughter is going to be saying no to foods that she is offered (school, parties etc.)

Hello all. I am new to this group, and as of yesterday, new to gluten free eating. My youngest daughter has suffered from headaches for the past 5 years, and we finally decided to have her checked for food intolerances to see if that was the cause. Well, last night we got the results and among other things, she has intolerances to gluten (wheat and oats), cow's milk, cane sugar, and maple sugar. The only non-caloric or artifical sweeteners that she can use are agave and honey. Needless to say, this is going to be challenging at best, especially with the holidays coming up. I need HELP! Any suggestions, recipes, and so forth would be great (along with tips on how to get her to go along with these changes). I have yet to tell the extended family, and I hope that they are willing to get on board with this, because if not I'm really going to have to fix her whole holiday meal and take it with us just so she can eat. Thanks again.
