My better-half and I were talking yesterday, and she asked; what do I crave right now, if it didn't matter about ingredients. I said; a chili-cheeseburger and fries. So today, when she came in from being out, she had HQ ground beef, Borden cheddar cheese, and a nice store brand chili we found. So, we had one of our favorite "junk food treats" without the "junk"; the bread that is.
:-)
This was the first time I'd had something like this without the bread... which made me start thinking 'n' wondering about what other people have done to change/improve some of their favorite non-essential food treats.
Come-on everyone, let's share some ideas..... thanks, GC

When I REALLY want a Wendy's cheeseburger, I will go to Wendy's and buy the burger patties without anything on them (of course I get really strange looks when I tell them to just put the patties into a "boat") then I bring them home,put my own lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayo and mustard and cheese on the patties and either put it on some gluten-free sandwich bread or eat it without the bread! Sure satisfies a craving!

We made ice cream sandwiches with pamela's gluten free cookies. Lots of them. With different flavors of ice cream. :P We've been dairy free ish for some time now. I may just have to go get some breyers this weekend...

Great idea for a post!

I found a recipe for a chocolate polenta cake and made it friendly to celiac AND my allergies and it tasted just like chocolate cake! I topped it with fresh berries and it was so yummy!

Another thing I do is make cheese sauce out of nutritional yeast and put it on EVERYTHING>...............!

When I'm craving something really good, I make brownies, put vanilla ice dream on them, and some Hershey's syrup heated up poured over it all. It's really good and reminds me of Chocolate Thunder from Down Under at Outback, which is a good gluten free but not dairy free dessert.

we'll do like nogluten and make a brownie sundae with a namaste brownie and edy's icecream and hershey's.

we'll take kinnikinnick english muffins and either toast or grill them and add scrambled eggs, cheese, for a breakfast sandwich. you could add bacon too or ham.

i made my dh and i our own gluten-free blizzards over weekend. edy's vanilla with crushed up wild oats gluten-free chocoate chip cookies and some hershey's chocolate. they tasted great :) and risk-free !

My "better half" refers to a husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend. My husband will introduce me to someone new by saying, "I don't think you have met my better half Kimberly..." ;)

Hi lorka150,

The chocolate polenta cake sounds great. I have alot of other allergies as well: egg whites,peanut, rice, and pinnapple. I have been looking for a cake for a while. Would this recipe be ok with my allergies?

Thanks,
Traci

nini, That is a great idea regarding the Wendy's burger! I'm going to do that this weekend--I've had such a craving for Wendy's. Maybe I'll bring my bread, order a baked potato and a drink and eat there like a normal person--I'm really excited now :D Thanks SO much!!!

Yes, it is an American English expression. Each person in the couple is considered "half' of the whole, so it is a joke in our country to call the other person the "better" half.

I was craving a Dairy Queen blizzard so I made one myself! I used my gluten-free ice cream and chopped up reses peanut butter cups. It was so good!!
