I know that I've posted some of my recipes before, but I thought that I would start a thread since I am finding great new recipes all the time. Please feel free to add to this list. I love to try new recipes!

Someone requested a pita bread recipe the other day and I said that I would give them a recipe; however, I cannot seem to find the thread. Here is a soft taco recipe that could be used as pita bread:

Bean Flour Torillas

1/3 cup light bean flour

1/2 cup cornstarch

2 Tablespoons tapioca flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs or 3 egg whites, or 1/2 cup liquid egg subsitute

1 1/2 cups water

Oil for brushing skillet

In a medium bowl, place the bean flour, cornstarch, tapioca flour, and salt. Whisk together. Add the eggs and beat together until smooth. Slowly beat in the water. Let rest in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Heat a 9" skillet or frypan over high heat, brushing with oil. Be sure it is hot enough for water to dance on the surface before starting to cook the tortillas. Spoon in about 4 tablespoons of batter or enough to cover the bottom of the skillet. Cook until the bottom of the tortilla is golden brown and the edges curl and the top seems dry, Turn and barely cook the other side.

This recipe is from "The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy" by Bette Hagman, p. 235.

Just review the recipies, I was wondering if a motivated person on the board would like to compile a cook book, Ginko's could put it together and we could buy if from that motivated person. Recipies with brand names to make it easy, would be a wonderful help to new and old members here.

As well, as a little profit for the effort. I would buy it in heart beat.

Oh, yeah, that's a great idea. (not me, I'm spending all my free time putting on a wedding in THREE MONTHS, for 500 of my closest and dearest friends :blink: ..... take a deep breath, Lisa.)

Any takers.

I would love to write a cookbook :) Right now is also not a good time for me though. I probably wouldn't be able to seriously sit down and get a book together for a few more years. I am also getting married fairly soon and I am trying to find a job while working at the same time! Ah!

Right now I am just glad to share all these recipes with everyone. If anyone else is interested in getting a cookbook together then I would be willing to let them use my recipes.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water....

    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
