http://www.gfoverflow.com/ will help you determine if a food is GF.

http://www.gluten.net/find-a-restaurant.aspx will help you find a GF restaurant.

I second all the recommendations here. Another thing to be careful of is oats. Not all oats are gf. Also, the Betty Crocker mixes are great, but you will need to alter the recipe instructions if you want them moist. I use milk instead of water, oil instead of butter and add some pudding to the mix. Tastes great! Nice and moist. I actually made cupcakes for a friends birthday party (they are non gf but she wanted my DD to be able to eat). They could not tell the difference.

It does get easier. G/L!

Another app for iPhone (maybe others, I'm not sure) is 'Find Me Gluten Free'. You can search restaurants by popular chains, by address, those close by, etc. for ones that offer gluten free options and the menu/list of choices that are GF. It also has a 'dining card' section to show to servers/chefs that clearly states what celiac is, what they cannot eat, and lists items specific to certain cuisines that cannot be consumed (ie Mexican/South American foods listed include flour tortillas , bread, battered foods, fried ice cream, churros, beer). It also contains lists of items by cuisine that celiacs must be cautious about, and items that are "safe". I believe it was free.

DH eats a lot of rice/cinnamon/chocolate/honey nut Chex cereals, for snacks as well as breakfast. Other snacks include nuts, Blue Diamond Nut Thins and Nut Chips, fruits, veggies and dip, cheese curls, tortilla chips, and Crunchmaster crackers. Desserts are tricky because he has a bad reaction to more than tiny amounts of xantham gum, which is added to so many GF baking mixes to add elasticity. I've found some GF brownies that use almond meal that he loves, so I make those for him. I've found a lot of GF recipes on Pinterest, along with a long list of GF baking mixes to make, but I haven't tried many of them yet. A PP mentioned GF burger buns at Red Robin restaurants. Our local RR manager told DH he could call the restaurant 24 hrs in advance and order as many buns as he wanted. When I get more space in the freezer I will order a dozen and just freeze them. The best pasta DH has found is Schar. It's actually made in Italy I believe.

OP, where are you from? Here in PA we have Giant, Weis and Wegmans grocery stores that have dedicated GF sections to shop in (some are bigger than others).

My husband can't have gluten, so I've been figuring this out, too. As someone who loves to cook, I highly recommend Gluten Free Girl-she has a blog and a book, is married to a chef, and her writing and recipes are gorgeous.

Nthing Trader Joes and Bob's Red Mill-red mill stuff is much cheaper through amazon than in our local stores. Their pizza mix is great. Most GF bread sucks until it's toasted.

My husband has a different gastro disease and has loved the book Breaking the Vicious Cycle. It shows the science behind what can trigger discomfort with gluten and other types of food.

We also love Grain-Free Gourmet cookbooks and Comfybelly.com for fabulous recipes (try the Jerk Chicken! AMAZING!).

Really, once you get off the processed food train, making food at home that is ok to eat (ie - gluten free, etc) is really not that hard. And it all tastes great!!! I have so many great recipes to share, just PM me.

OP, have your daughter try Udi's Bread/Rolls or Rudi's brand. Both are great toasted or un-toasted. Also, look in your area health-food store for locally made gluten free bread. Or, you can always make your own. I used to make Gluten Free Pantry (by Glutino) bread in my bread machine before I started switching to grain free, but it's fabulous! Of course you'd want to use a new bread machine because of cross-contamination. DD should get her own peanut butter, butter, honey, jelly, etc to prevent wheat-crumby utensils from contaminating it.

When I was first diagnosed my doctor me the advice to think of myself as being on a low carb diet (without the sugar restrictions). Most, but not all, low carb dishes are also gluten free. It made my life much easier at the time. Also, as PPs have said, reading labels is key. You wouldn't believe some of the items that have hidden gluten (like airline peanuts).
