Brined and Grilled Orange Tarragon Chicken—Gluten Free
My favorite makeover recipes are ones like this, no changes required. Don’t discard those old conventional cookbooks! My mother’s Third Edition 1956 Betty Crocker’s Picture Cook Book is still my “go to” recipe finder. A basic conventional cookbook with hundreds of recipes that are gluten free! No flour or other ingredient that may contain gluten. In fact, some of my old favorite meringue recipes are available online with no changes!

The DLM Gluten-Free Food Lovers’ Club meets from 3–4:30 p.m. the second Saturday of each month except March, November, & December in the Culinary Center next to our Washington Square store. Our next meeting will be Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 3-4:30 p.m. Bring your favorite G-F entrée recipe and we will choose ONE for the makeover, using the Club’s mission statement “promoting G-F as a lifestyle choice while exploring nutritious, new foods that taste good" as our guideline. We will sample my favorite G-F makeover recipe, FISH TACOS WITH CILANTRO LIME RANCH SLAW. Copies will be provided.
DLM Air-Chilled Chicken
Did you know an Animal Welfare Committee ensures our free-range chickens are raised and handled with minimal stress and never de-beaked? Our pampered poultry are free to sunbathe in the warm grass or take shelter in their clean, state-of-the-art chicken house when the weather is bad. Our Air Chill System gives you a cleaner, better-tasting chicken. In conventional chillers, chickens may absorb 7 to 8% of their body weight in added water - and that water may contain chlorine or contamination from other chickens. The end result is a tender, more flavorful chicken.
DLM Preserves
Fruit is always the #1 ingredient in our old fashioned preserves. We start with Grade-A fruit from small family-owned farms in the most fertile growing regions of the United States. Our preserves NEVER contain corn sweeteners, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. DLM Preserves are bottled locally in Sharonville, Ohio. I use the Bittersweet Orange Preserves with poultry or grilled pork.
DLM Culinary Center
It took us three months to remodel, but it was well worth the wait. Our new Culinary Center is absolutely gorgeous with granite counter tops, comfortable chairs, and a stereo system. If you haven’t stopped by or taken one of our many cooking classes, be sure to check out the schedule. We still have seats available in several classes, so sign up today and have a truly unique and interactive culinary experience.

GRD-The Full Range of Systemic Autoimmune Diseases with Diverse Manifestations?
The term gluten-related disorders (GRD) includes a whole range of systemic autoimmune diseases with diverse manifestations. GRD are characterized by abnormal immunological responsiveness to ingested gluten in genetically susceptible individuals. Celiac disease (CD) or gluten-sensitive impairment of abnormal functioning of the intestinal tract is the best-known GRD.

Conditions occurring outside of the intestine include dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) and neurologic dysfunction. These conditions have only recently become accepted because they show no abnormality of the intestinal tract. This research of gluten-related neurologic dysfunction or disorders of the brain, spine, and the nerves that connect them reviews the spectrum of neurologic manifestations in GRD. Recent advances in their diagnosis, and a look at their possible pathophysiologic mechanisms, are discussed.

I believe the feelings of lethargy and the difficulties in concentration I have after exposure to gluten are my gluten-related neurologic dysfunction symptoms and are another form GRD and separate from CD. I also hear other members of the Club complain about the same symptoms. I am happy research in this area is being performed.
