Okay. I've finally worked up the nerve to start baking instead of buying mixes. I have searched off and on all week for a posting and cannot find it. A group of kind members had posted the types of flour combinations they use to bake breads, muffins, etc. I found lots of info except one vital tidbit.
What is the brand name of glutinous (sp?) or sweet rice flour folks use and know is gluten-free? I ask because I cannot get this flour at Whole Foods and wanted to try the Asian markets, but want to make sure it's not flour produced on the same line as wheat...
I'm also willing to order online at this point since I worked up the nerve two weeks ago but still haven't found the flour.
Thanks to all the knowledgeable out there. If I could send the hugs of gratitude I have for all your previous posts, patience, and help, I'd fill up your inboxes!
PS I read in a recipe book that sorghum (jowar) flour can be subbed for wheat flour w/o anything else - anyone try this (still need to find that flour too
Does anyone know what all yeast sensitivities means from Great Smokies? I had purchased the Uncheese Cookbook before I realized that almost all recipes call for nutitional yeast. Is nutritional yeast the same as what is referred to on that test? I'm lost!
I'd very much like to see something tangible regarding the issues with soy - my son has been drinking 3 - 6 bottles a day now for 1.5 years and if there is something bad about it - please, please do let me know.

Ordered one of everything (just about) from kinnicknincickicn - you know what I mean
Will try Ms. Robsen's too - I think that is funny because someone else recommended Ms Robsen's, I had it up on the web, my machine froze, had to reboot and could not remember the site. Thank you all again!
For those who equate stem cell with aborted fetuses - PLEASE READ ON. That is not what stem cell research or medicine is about.
Stem cells are derived from many sources, including cord cell blood after a baby is born. These are precious cells that can change the lives of thousands on this planet - right now.
Consider the argument of playing God. If a person decides it is okay to treat some diseases and not others, that person is indeed playing God. Every time someone has a heart attack and is resuscitated, are we playing God? Does that mean we let someone die who may just need a pacemaker? Every time a peanut allergic child is exposed and is given an epi pen, are we playing God by saving that child's life? Every time someone is stung by a bee and given treatment, are we playing God?
If you are hit by a car tomorrow, and paralyzed from the waist down, but they can use stem cells to regenerate the damaged nerves, would you say no? What if you were paralyzed from the neck down?
It's easy to play God when it's not you or your children who could be cured of a life-threatening illness, or paralysis, or in my son
