Missyleeme: You are so lucky that your son has a visible "cheat-o-meter". I don't think my 10 yr old cheats yet, but it'd be nice to know. I wish I had a visible way to tell how I'm doing on the diet. Usually, when I get glutened, I know where it came from, but not always.....
In the beginning of this lifestyle, I'd make a batch of regular lasagna, brownies, cookies, etc. and a batch of gf lasagna, brownies, etc. But if the brownie batter got on my hand or what not I'd want to lick it off. The temptation is too strong, so I don't bake anything w/gluten in it anymore. I put up w/seeing it and buying it. I don't need to be putting myself in that dangerous situation anymore.

I am not a Celiac, but my son and husband are. I want to make sure things taste good for them....I suppose, at least in my mind, why I feel like I want to try it. But then again, who doesn't want to try a new brownie recipe or cookie recipe....after all, they are homemade!!! And it tasting it, you might be able to tell what to change the next time you make it.The GF apple crips recipe I got off the Celica.com site. I believe I used the second recipe. (Just make sure you use butter and not Smart Balance) They have a wonderful resource of recipes. The Carmel bars taste better than store bought. WE all love them.

I do find that I need to bake because my son has been cheating on his diet. He is almost 16. A little dermatitises started on the back of the arm. I told him he was cheating and he admitted it. He was diagnosed a year ago.

God's faithfulness remains constant even when ours wavers.

I just tell myself that cheating, and that's what you are doing when sampling the stuff you are baking, isn't worth the possible reaction I may have by sampling the goods. I bake for my family quite a bit and not at all tempted to try it. Too many memories of the pain I was in when undiagnosed.

In trying new recipes for my son and husband, who are Celiac,I found myself sampling them not once, but a few times. How you you resist the temptation to nibble when you're baking such great treats. Today I made GF Apple Crisp, GF Carmel Bars, and GF Chocolate Peanut butter cookies. I was like a kid in a candy store.....I really blew it today! Over 2000 calories. Any advice for the next time I bake....(in a few days) I have more members of the family with Celiac coming to visit for Memorial day.
