It has been. Since she started school this is our third cook and as far as I am concerned the most caring for my daughter and her sister who also has food allergies. I am trying my hand at fixing GF fried chicken. I used products from a company near me. It's called Mom's Place. They have a variety of GF mixes. They have a flour blend I'm trying for the 1st time and using my own blend of spices for chicken coating. I'll let you know later tonight how she liked it. I'm going to the company tommorrow to pick up some more supplies. Last night I fixed a gluten free recipe from "The Chew" actually it's the poor man's version. It turned out well. I took a large ruby red yam and cut it into cubes, sliced some sweet onion laid it on top. Laid chicken pieces on top. Topped the chicken w/ orange zest and cooked it orange juice covered @350 for about an hour. Very sweet and low calorie.
I live in a town of less than 600. It's the largest town in our county. There are about 150 kids more or less in the entire district. With the cook serving so few kids she feels it's not too much trouble doing a little bit for her. I supply GF Hamburger buns (I have a kit), Just sent GF Pizza crusts, Tommorrow they are serving spaghetti.. My daughter asked to have GF fried chicken. This will be my 1st time using this special flour blend to make fried chicken. Some meals I provide in entire amounts or partial. Many meals she changes slightly for my daughter. They will have scalloped potatoes soon and my daughter will have baked. They are also catering to 2 other students with food allergies.
My daughter has had food allergies for all but three years of her life. Ages 9-12. Shortly after her 13th birthday this came on. Her old list was as long as my arm at one time. She gradually out grew those. I was told by her allergist this could be temporary due to her age and it being hives. She cooks some of her meals and because of her life with food allergies she has become creative in her cooking. She has done a 4-H project on cooking gluten-free and has done a competitive demonstration on baking gluten free brownies. Right now I'm trying to lose weight and expand what we eat as a family. We have several cookbooks and I have been working with the school cook (who is wonderful) in expanding what my daughter can eat at school.
Hi and welcome to the team. Make sure that you read all labels and if in doubt then don't get it.
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.

Welcome! I have found that my whole extended family will eat gluten free pasta, which helps. Our favorite is Hodgson Mill, and we also like DeBoles. They will also eat pancakes and muffins made with almond meal. It is fun to try out new recipes. We also like stuffed peppers made with quinoa instead of rice, even though rice is also gluten free. Have fun experimenting with new gf foods!!! (My Aunt just made a gf pizza using the King Arthur gluten free multi-purpose flour for the crust. The possibilities are all around!)
I am a mother of a teenager who was diagnosed with a wheat allergy (hive) this past December. With the help of friends with Celiac's we have made her life more enriching. Because she will be under my roof for some time still I am cooking for the most part gluten free. Some meals that I eat separate from her I still eat wheat. For those meals we share (which is frequent) I want to continue providing healthy wheat-free meals the whole family can enjoy. We have found some local companies that have wonder gluten-free alternatives for her. Her favorite GF meal is Stuffed Bell Peppers. Thanks.
