    I haven't done the gluten free thing but I did switch to the 'no flour/no sugar' diet a number of years ago as a weight reduction measure. Worked great btw. Dr. Peter Gott - who developed the 'diet' has several books including cookbooks for this. Might be of help as well.

    I was diagnosed with celiac almost 9 nears ago. I have tried various flour mixes and I happened across this one that I have had wonderful success with. I buy flours in bulk and make my own mix then and keep it in the cabinet. This mix made wonderful pumpkin cookies (best I have ever eaten) and wonderful date pinwheel cookies with a recipe that I have made for over 40 years. It takes 4 cups sorghum flour; 2 2/3 cup tapioca flour; 2 2/3 cups potato starch; 1 cup fava & garbanzo flour. Mix it all together and store. When using it in a recipe, use 1 tsp xantham gum or guar gum, 1 tsp per cup of flour used. Then you double the leavening agent & usually cook 10 minutes longer. This mix will give the brown appearance more common to wheat flour. Some flours like rice are very difficult to brown without becoming so hard you can use them as weapons. I just use one cup of this flour and substitute cup for cup for the regular flour.

    Good luck. It can be done and I wouldn't eat gluten now for anything. My health is so much better and I no longer have headaches and constant stomach pain.There is some residual damage but I can live with that.

    Do you like almond flavor? IMHO, these are the best cookies on the planet! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recip...cookies-recipe By the way, I don't use the bitter almond if I don't have it and they turn out just fine. You'll find some other yummy GF recipes on this site as well.

    I use crushed Rice Chex in place of bread crumbs. Also found that shopping for rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca flour in an Asian grocery is much more economical than in a regular or health foods store. Betty Hagman has a series of recipe books - a pioneer in gluten free cooking. She has a recipe for gluten free "flour" that contain all three of the above-mentioned ingredients. Sadly she is no longer alive.

    My son has adopted gluten-free and based on his experience I am preparing to join him. Recently when he joined us for celebration dinner I made a flourless chocolate cake that was divine. I found the recipe online at http://allrecipes.com/recipe/flourle...olate-cake-ii/
