My dad and brother have Celiac's disease, so I really appreciate stuff like this. Thanks for sharing.

Or, if you'd like to have a cookie and don't want to spend the next day or so with gut-wrenching cramps and explosive diarrhea, Subby.  Celiac/gluten sensitivity in Ms. Gough's family.

yet to try arrowroot, but I've had good luck with almond flour and peanut flour.

I also have a big bag of buckwheat flour, which has never been used for anything other than pancakes and waffles... hmm...

Madelines made with ground almonds.  That's all you need to know.

I don't avoid gluten, but cookies are one particular place where gluten-free is not necessarily a sacrifice. My favorite cookies, French macarons, are gluten-free.

I especially love the pistachio ones

Cup4cup flour makes for a pretty solid traditional chocolate chip cookie.

I make a pretty good gluten-free chocolate-chip cookie with oat flour.

A close friend of mine also has Celiac. I always make sure to foreard her these type links and she and her husband love exploring options.

I still remember one time we were on a Disney Cruise and I swear her gluten free dessert was 10x better than my more traditional one.

That chocolate raspberry thing on the right is the gluten free one. Lol. I have occasional issues with lactose. So my dessert on the left might not have been the best idea. But lactose just puts me in the bathroom for a bit, gluten these days can put her in the ER.

The cafeteria at work has pretty good gluten free burger buns. That's all I got on the subject.

jclaggett: But lactose just puts me in the bathroom for a bit, gluten these days can put her in the ER.


Yeah. The awful thing is that in the late 80's and through the 90's my dad kept getting doctors who accused him of having mental issues around pooping and basically told him to suck it up and deal with it*. The chronic inflammation did some serious damage. Getting diagnosed in the late 90s was basically a miracle for him.

I wonder how many people in history basically suffered and died from it quietly.

*It didn't help that we only had one bathroom and so he suffered further psychological abuse at home. 1) dad was always in there when you needed it and 2) it always smelled like something died and stayed out in the hot sun. In retrospect I feel a little bad about that

My friend's whole life changed when she got the proper diagnosis and started adjusting her diet accordingly.

When they still lived in Florida her family and I would do frequent Disney trips.

Disney Chefs pride themselves on their creativity with food allergies. They take it seriously and have seperated prep areas and everything to avoid cross contamination.

These days you get a menu with a list of the normal menu items that they can quickly and easily accommodate. But for any table, the Chef will still come out and talk it over and offer suggestions as well.

NGL, she (and I'm sure many others) have a love / hate with the GF "fad." It's increased options for sure, but it's still lame.

Actual celiac sufferers are the only beneficiaries of the stupidity of the gluten-free craze. All the "gluten intolerant" morans are just eating inferior versions of delicious food usually at a much higher price.

Yeah, it used to be eye-wateringly high prices. My brother was seriously annoyed at the "gluten lite" crowd for a while until he realized they were opening up the market and driving prices down. It's still pretty expensive but it's gotten SO much better than the early 2000s.

And I was honestly surprised by this: 
Wyeast Clarity Ferm

So, Wyeast designed this to reduce haze in beer but it has the extremely interesting side effect of breaking up  gluten molecules. Best part is it's only $5 for a 10mL vial (treating 5 gal). I've been using it in homebrews so the family can enjoy real beer again and apparently some Mid Atlantic microbrews have been catching on to it too.

So if your friend likes (or liked) beer I have some really good news!

I have to give Disney mad props for that..  The menu list, watching food handlers change to fresh gloves when making GF dishes, and the chef coming out to check are more than nearly any other place that we've visited.

So, at the end of the day, good Guest Service is just a good investment in PR.

Walt realized that early on, and while there have been so bumps in the road, you can still know that when you step foot on property, everyone's goal is you having a good time.

I spent a decade on the inside and had an absolute blast. We were always empowered to do things to to make someone's experience better. Even little things. Little Johnny just dropped his Mickey bar ice cream. No worries, we've for a replacement, "On the Mouse." And yes. We said that. Sounds cheesey (hah!) but damnit if it didn't bring a smile to mom and/or dad's face. And of course little Johnny is happy again because ICE CREAM!

I spent most of my time at the hotels as a Concierge and then FD supervisor. I've helped create some of the most unique and memorable wedding proposals (guys...in front of the Castle is cliche. Ask Guest Relations or the hotel for help finding something memorable).

And I've seen one of my FD managers basically adopt and entire family and spend hours on the phone with airlines and such when grandma passed away in her room and things had to happen differently on their vacation.

Another manager of mine was heavily involved when the Newtown survivors got to come visit and escape their harsh reality for a few days. Looking at those photos always tugged at the heart strings.

And I ramble. But yeah, Disney is a gold standard for service for a reason. And there's a reason *many* companies send their people to The Disney Institute to learn. Or have DI come to them.

Now...I left because I made a mistake. I transferred to a call center supporting the new online initiatives that started around 2010 or so. Even at a place Where Dreams Come True, call center life will sap you.

I guessed kale when I saw the headline.  Gluten-free is way down the list.

For some reason in my experience Martha Stewart cookie recipes seem to translate really well into Cup4cup.  I guess it's the weight of flour she uses?

I can't beat what these folks can do. Brownies are about the only sweet I'll do gluten free from scratch anymore. Try em if you can find them in your area. They're all good, but the chocolate ones are superb.
