Hey Cindy from Cindy, I picked out a few recipes that I really like and converted them...for instance I made custard in cups instead of in pie crust.I really love salad, so I made a nice big salad. We had mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. It worked out fine.
Thanks for the suggestion on the soup. I will look for it. I will look for the recipe for cheese cake,too. I am just beginning to build a gluten free recipe library. Slowly but surely!
I am searching for a bread recipe that does not turn out gritty. I have a new one that I got from one of the links suggested that I am going to try. I first have to get the correct flour.
Welcome to a fellow Cindy! I also am cooking Thanksgiving and it really doesn't have to be different for you. I am making a pumpkin cheesecake (the link to the recipe is in the chat forum) and just modifying the gravy using cornstarch, and making my own stuffing with GF bread. IF you can get to the people in time that are making the casseroles...there IS GF cream of mushroom soup made by Imagine. It is in a carton and I found it in the natural/organic food section. worth a try, maybe they would substitute for you if you gave them some...

Cindy H, there are a lot of good bread mixes out there. Pamela has one that I really like to make rolls from and when they are hot my family really likes them. I think I saw a really good pumpkin cheesecake pie recipe using the new GF bisquick mix. Go to their web site. They have what looks like a lot of great recipes.
Put GF in the search engines and you will find that there are plenty of recipes out there. You can make them and don't tell others and they will no know the difference with them. So give it a try.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Hey Donna, I don't really know what I am searching for exactly. I learned to bake bread and make pies as my primary contribution to family events.
I built a cook's kitchen in my new house to try and contribute to my husband's (now my) family. No one really has the space for events so we stepped up. We live on a farm and all the kids get a kick out of coming out.
Now I am going to have to earn my cudos in a different area than baking. So far I have a hummus recipe the kids ask me to make...not exactly traditional TG, ha,ha!

Thanks Sallie. Any suggestions for GF dishes? Everyone in our family brings something, but it seems most recipes start with Campbell's soup. We will have greenbean casserole, broccoli cheese casserole, pies, sausage dressing, yeast rolls, and mashed potatoes brought in.
Then I will make turkey, gravy, salad, buttered carrots and I am searching for some other recipes.

Welsome! This will be my first year cooking Gluten Free as I was just recently diagnosed. but I have wonderful neighbors and friends and we are cooking together and my girlfriend loves to cook and has already researched many things we can have. I am blessed. I am not a big meat eater but will eat a bit of white meat turkey. Happy Thanksgiving. Sallie

Hello all. I am new to SparkPeople so bear with me. I found out in April 2010 that I have Celiacs. Same story as many, misdiagnosises, lifelong symtoms...I am feeling wonderful these days, unless I get "glutinized." I also am very sensitive to glutamates, so I have become a label reading fiend.
I am "it" this year for Thanksgiving dinner. I am cooking for 21 people. It suddenly occurred to me that there will be very little that I can eat, so I am feeling a little lost. Being a vegetarian with Celiacs is lonely! Anyone else out there feeling this way?
