gluten free restaurants

Does anyone know where I can get a list of gluten free restaurants? I've checked several of the societies, but all I've found is reviews of restaurants that people have gone to. No actual lists.…Continue

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

i just joined this group. My husband is the cook at our house. He uses

gf Jules flour. He was able to use his mom's old recipes for cookies at Christmas last year. I am sold. I don't have Celiac but just sensitive to wheat and gluten.

Restaurants are now going gluten free. I call before I go. Most places we go have either a gluten free menu or can make dishes gluten free for you.

I hope that helps.

Welcome Andrea C. This group is rather small. Gluten free is becoming a symbol on packages, but it still can contain soy.  I need to go shopping for some rice flour. I did put cup of flax-seed in my bread instead of cup of flour. It was really good made in the bread machine. I too have a longarm machine. Spent a few hours with it today. I need to quilt for others.

Hi, I am new here. I was just diagnosed in mid-May, and I dove right into creating my own replacement recipes since the pre-packaged GF stuff. Costs so much.

My problems started when I was pregnant with my second child who is now 18months old. I had several surgeries for different symptoms, and was still in upper GI stress. My gastro doc could not find the problem, it ended up that my obgyn discovered it. I was off of all 4 meds in 1.5weeks. I am feeling ten times better, but still healing. I am left in a state of peri-menopause with CFS, but my doc is hopeful that with herbal suppliments and 18-24months of healing time I will be fully recovered. Sounds horrible, but I really am feeling so much better!

I love quilting, it's the air that I breath! I own a longarm and do quilting as a business part time out of our home. My favorites are civil war, Kansas troubles, and all the earthy types of fabric. Really, I like brights and stuff too, but those are my favorite.

I am excited to start swapping GF recipes with you all, thanks for having me!

I was thinking about  this site be for food quilts? I have a pie quilt and cherry table cloth quilt?

Any one made a good gluten free cookie. What do you use for flour? I tried rice cereal and oats. It had too much butter, but it worked. May try it again soon. I need a breakfast bar. School starts in a week.

That's great to hear, Linda. Nice to know you have less pain. My younger daughter is now off of gluten again. She is definitely sensitive to gluten. When I get around to it, I make our bread. I try to avoid soy as well. There's also a lot of sugar in gluten-free foods.

I have been reading more about this subject after being told my liver was having problems. I feel it was soy and taking too much over the counter drugs.  The gluten free diet is the cure or help for liver damage. When reading about the liver one site said McDonald  and Burger King where loaded with soy. I am surprised that many gluten free food also have soy. Soy is in all the bread. I have found in the last two weeks that the more I eat natural and homemade the less I have pain.

Anyone in this group actively chatting. I can't believe there are only a few of us.

Right now I'm listening to a radio program on gluten free diets.
