  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Whole foods just FINALLY opened up, just 5 miles from my house . . the first one in Richmond, VA . . ugg . .anyways, I saw they had more than twice as many envirokids cereals as my grocery store and smaller hfs - but also noticed that one of them didnt say gluten-free on it. I thought it was pretty lame that WF had that one righ in the center of the display and all the others were gluten-free and that one wasnt. I also believe the potato flour is 30 cents cheaper at my grocery store . . . geesh. Still, NO one carries the super-fine brown rice flour that Annalise Roberts recomends . . .

  4. I kinda want to try NAET, but havent gotten there yet. Lots of people insist it sounds like quakery (and it does sound like quackery) but others swear it worked for them.
  5. The book gluten free baking classics has a cheese puff recipe - i havent tried it because we dont do dairy any more (/cry) but it might be worth checking out. It looked more like a cracker, i think
  6. Sandwich Bread?

    I have Annalise Robert's Gluten Free Baking Classics and her sandwhich bread has been my biggest success. I had a total failure w lorka's bread as well, and we didnt even like the flavor. The first time I made Robert's sandwhich bread, it fell badly, but my son still ate 3 pieces while it was warm. I finally gave in and bought a smaller (8x4) pan and a thermometer, so I can be sure the bread is done in the middle before I take it out of the oven. I think I also tried putting a pan of water in the oven. I did use her variation w sweet rice flour to make it taste and feel more like white bread, and I had to sub soy flour for the garfava because my son is allergic to garbanzo. Anyways, this has become his bread. He eats it as a treat w cinnamon sugar and takes it to school for sandwhiches. I also made her sub sandwhich bread in small mini-cake-pans i purchased at Target. The dough made 5 rolls and i put them on a pizza pan with the 6th pan half-full of water in the center - he said they beat the rolls I used to make w chebe hands down. I made her pizza dough, and made my own nomato sauce (he's allergic to tomatos AND to beets, the most comon sub) and soy cheese . . .and he said it was the best pizza sub he's had so far. btw, I did end up buying a breadman bread machine - the black one w the gluten-free setting - mostly becuase the yeast was making me sick every time i made bread. It works well except if you dont take the paddle out at the beginning of the rise cycle, it tears the bread pretty badly. But as I said before, putting a pan of water in the oven, using the right size pan, and using a thermometer to make sure the bread is really done, has given me a real success in sandwhich bread.
  7. Wow, i'm so glad people are using this recipe! I've been making them all summer, and i vary it a bit here and there, but I havent actually done chocolate chips yet - my son sometimes gets a rash around his mouth from chocolate (tho i did make him brownies for the first week of school )
  8. If you want to try baking - just be patient! I was an avid baker for my whole life (i'm 43) and my first dozen bread attemps (well, at least half dozen) were totaly flops. I finally have had success with the sandwhich bread recipe in Annalise Robert's book, 'Gluten Free Baking Classics'. I did buy a thermometer, and at first, a smaller bread pan. Now i'm using the bread-man machine with the gluten-free cycle. I cant eat the bread because i'm allergic to yeast, but my son loves it - he makes cinnamon toast w it all the time as a treat - must be good!
  9. Chebe!

    I was using chebe for rolls for my son when we first went Gluten-free Casein-free, because my earliest yeast breads were flops. He was happy w the chebe shaped as sub rolls - i did not use cheese, kneaded in the machine a long time, added the baking soda, and they came out kinda flat and somewhat chewy in the middle. I read on this forum that you should leave them out for 24 hours, wrapped in a 'tea towel', to let them dry out before wrapping them in plastic. I did make the cinnamon rolls once, and my son LOVED them However, since i finally got regular bread working, we havent made chebe. He much prefers the yeast rolls and breads, now.
  10. After 8 mo of trying, i've managed to make bread. Well, I cant eat it, but my son says its absolutely the best gluten-free bread he's had (he's been gluten free for about 3 months). I used the sandwhich bread recipe from gluten free baking classics, no bread machine, but i did have to buy a bread pan and a thermometer. He's been eating cinnamon toast . .. i cant imagine doing that with awful bread.
  11. I've been subbing soy for garfava flour, for my garbanzo-allergic son. I've only managed to make a few bread items i can eat w/out tapioca, but i cant eat yeast either. You can try various other starches - but tapioca seems to be one of the best. Any specific recipes you need help w?
  12. My sister had them, had surgeries and tons of antibiotics and nothing cleared it up. She was also allergic to corn, but never really went corn free. I recently read that corn allergy can cause utis. I'm a big fan of a sensitivity test called A.L.C.A.T (if you spell w/out the dots, it gets altered ...) you could use that to look for problem foods and see if taking them out helps. Corn, however, is a really hard one . ..
  13. I made the recipe from the book gluten free baking classics, and thought it was the best chocolate chip cookie i'd ever had. You do have to make sure to use extra-fine rice flour.
  14. I drank gatoraide for years when I got that really bad thirsty feeling. I discovered it fairly late in life, and was just thrilled how much it helped. When i met my 2nd husband, he was kinda thrilled becuase he'd never met a woman who drank it I was also noticing that i'd gone thru this summer and only wanted gatoraide one or two times and was really wondering why - i guess its that i'm healthier . .. so hopefully it will improve for you (I've been gluten-free since november 07)
  15. How funny, as sson as I tear myself away from the computer, I plan to make rolls (from the sub sandwhich roll recipe in the gluten free baking classics) in the 4-inch cake pans I bought at target. I did try making french bread once (we hated the taste and texture tho) - i took tin foil and shaped pans out of the foil, folding the ends over to make them keep their shape. I make the chebe rolls for my son, but i cant handle tapioca - or yeast for that matter. I just eat everything plain with corn chips on the side.
