I need your help

My oldest daughter has just been diagnosed with Celiacs Disease, I have to get my other 2 kids tested for it because they are both showing symptoms of it and if one person has to go gluten free then I've decided that we all will, in the long run I'm pretty sure it will benefit all of us. But here's where I need you, I know there are a lot of people going GF now for one reason or the other, if you're one of them could you share some recipes and cook books along with pointers such as what flours are better, tapioca or potato, are some GF crackers better than others ? what salad dressing do you use ? what about broths and noodles ? a staple around here is homemade chicken noodle soup, but my recipe is going to have to be tweaked a bunch I'm thinking.
If you could help me in this process I'd be so appreciative xox

Get the noodles in the pink and beige package at Giant. We have been through every brand and these taste (and smell) the least like stinky feet. In fact I would venture to say they may be stinky feet free!

LOL Maria. Being stinky feet free is always a good thing. I was going to ask you where you buy all of your GF stuff.

the GF pasta brand I like the best is Tinkyada, they sell it at Whole Foods and at our "regular" grocery store (wtf is Giant? Hah! <3) and it always comes out perfect al dente - my MIL can't tell the difference between it and regular wheatful pasta.

go to , and -- they both have GREAT recipe archives, and's forums are super-awesome for advice.

I will put together a cookbook list for you, too - hopefully this weekend. You really don't have to go crazy, you just need to read EVERY DAMN LABEL for the rest of your life (we all should be doing it anyway, it is insane the amount of crap we put into our bodies unknowingly!)

p.s. I did reply to you on my blog too but I think it posted as a comment instead of emailing you directly ;)
