I am a HUGE fan of yours! And your awesome sons as well! I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease, and have to be 100% gluten free. :-(. It's not been too bad so far, I LOVE to cook! What could I use in place of bread crumbs or crackers or panko? With all of the recipes I love, everything is breaded!

For Tillie. I use fat free ranch dressing and not mustard for my oven baked fried chicken. Also, if you put a little flour in the panko it makes for a crisper chicken.

Looks delicious.....I am always looking for recipes I can use. I also have diabetes, But I also have Chronic Kidney Disease. So I am very limited as to what I can have. It is so hard for me to find a recipe I can actually use. I cannot have Salt, Whole wheat, Chocolate, Colas, Beans, only 5-6 oz of protein a day. I think that is it. So basically just fruits and veggies and very little protein. Oh and I also can't have dairy, so no butter, cheese's. Sorta depressing wouldn't you say? I have written to so many people for some help with ideas, but I guess they just don't have any. Breakfasts are hard for me, I don't like the Rice milk, and etc. So all I drink is water. That's my story, if you can help me out at all it would be greatly appreciated. I have several sodium free spices from Penzy's and Mrs Dash. But there is nothing like salt.
