My daughter, who is now in her mid-forties, has just developed celiacs disease. To add insult to that, she has also become extremely allergic to wheat. We have found that a lot of boxed items sold in grocery stores claim to be gluten free and wheat free. However, read the ingredients well. Any flavor additives listed and any ingredient starting with multi- contain wheat. Through taste trial and error, she has to steer clear of any of these ingredients. It's easy to cook regular meals for her, but I want to make an occasional cake or cookies - maybe even bread as only ten slices cost almost ten dollars. Oh, an by-the-way, many fast food restaurants - especially Wendy's, uses wheat as filler in their hamburgers making the hamburger a no-no meal. She can't have any rolled oats either. Peanut butter must include vegetable oil, Hellman's mayonnaise with olive oil is ok, no soda. It's very difficult. I've been reading some of the information on this site to get help in making cakes and cookies that taste good, have a good texture and won't make her sick. I'm getting some good ideas. Thank you. From what I am reading, this is not going to be an easy task.
