gluten-free ideas

My SO was just diagnosed with Celiacs Disease. Have been researching all weekend, but was wondering if anyone had any good recipes for sweets or breads?

    If you have a Whole Foods in your area they have lot's of gluten free products
    Check the web as well...lots of mail order place that ship bread.....we find the tapioca breads to be the best...

    1. My niece had a similar problem. Eating gluten free is almost like eating low/no carb...mostly fruits/vegetables and meats. Rice was not off limits.

      1. Check the Gluten-Free Goddess blog - she did a few posts on baking earlier this month

        1. My husband has Celiac too. I recently bought Gluten Free French Desserts and Baked Goods from
          www.ecookbooks.com
          Some of the recipes are great and some are just okay, but it is definately worth owning.

          1. I have been gluten-free for about 13 years. First, ask your doctor for ideas. There are many websites and catalog companies. glutenfree.com has some wonderful mixes and products, many of which are available in health food stores. Some major supermarkets now carry some items in their "natural" or "gourmet" sections. Celiacforums.com has much information too. Bobsredmill.com has flours and mixes. Cybros.com has some excellent glutenfree breads and the only mock-rye bread I have found. There is lots of stuff out there. Much more than when I first started.
            Good luck
