So far, no one seems any perkier, but we're only a few days in, and the elimination challenge is for another three weeks. So it is still possible that the household will need to become gluten-free, but now I have hope that if that happens, I won't kill anyone for lack of comfort food.
The recipes in question:
Cherry Almond Bars -- this is not written as a gluten-free recipe, but I subbed in off the shelf GF flour for the regular flour and it worked fine
Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread by Life After Wheat This was so superior to everything else GF I've tried that I think I'm going to try her custom GF flour mix recipe instead of store-bought next time. (Also, dear lordy GF store bought things are so expensive; making it from scratch is a pain but definitely cheaper.) This entry was originally posted at http://jeliza.dreamwidth.org/1011078.html.
