Calling All Gf Cooks!

Okay all you fabulous gluten-free cooks out there here is the deal.... as some of you know I have been putting together recipes for some time now to put out cookbook. So far, I have nearly 100 recipes, but I would like to get a few more before I present it to the publisher. So if any of you would like to contribute, I'd love to hear/read your suggestions/recipes.

Please keep in mind that my book is not exactly like the books on gluten-free cooking you find now on the market, mine is more about (somewhat upscale, but not advanced) cooking with fresh ingredients, and it's going to include the following sections:

Hee hee... thanks, I'm so nervous! I am drafting my proposals for the publishers as we speak and I keep thinking what if they hate it? or scarier still what if they love it? I think no matter what the responses are I'm gonna freak out. :P

Kathleen - are you planning on having some ethnic recipes? Since going gluten-free, I really miss going out to ethnic restaurants...I've been worried that the language barrier isssue would be a problem. (I've only gone once... to an Indian restaurant where the manager spoke English well enough). I'd love to learn to make my own Thai/Indian/ etc. foods. Sara

I also plan on including several Asian and Mediterranean dishes.

Would you be willing to post your chili rellenos recipe? I have been lusting for some for a long time now, but too nervous to try. good luck with the publishers. If they don;t think there's a market, just tell them to look at this site, and how hungry we all are for info.

I made some "Char Sui Bao's" today (pronounced cha sue bow), they are a Chinese bun filled with barbequed pork. It was the first time I attemped this particular feat. I had been making them for a couple of years before we went gluten free and hadn't made any since because of the challange, but they turned out awsome! Not quite the depth of color that wheat bread will get, but the taste was almost perfect.... I am definately going to put them into my book.... I am also going to work on a wonton skin, something that we can also use for potstickers too, but I need to find the time to experiment more.

Thanks for all the support guys!

Oops, I forgot... Libby, I don't mind posting the rellanos recipe, give me some time to type it up though, I have it tucked into a drawer with my million other recipes and need to pull it out.

It's really easy though.... roast & skin your chilies, then make a slit down the center and stuff them with cheese (I use monterey jack) then dip in rice flour, beaten egg and gluten-free bread crumbs. Pan fry and serve with a chili sauce or sour cream or whatever you prefer. I will post something a little more specific when I organize everything, but don't be afraid to give them a try.

Are you interested at all in some Indian recipes? In South India they make most of their breads from rice and lentils, and they turn out fantastically.

Kathleen-

thanks for being generous with your recipe- I can't wait to try it out!

shimma-

I would love to try out some indain breads. This is the first time in my life I have been excited about baking, or breads. I tried somebody's cinnamon poori recipe yesterday- yum. I did miss cinamon toast. By all means, throw some ideas out there. I will give em a try.

Here is a wonderful gluten-free fried chicken breast recipe.

1. Dust your chicken with a legal flour

2. Roll it in soaked ground flaxseed. (2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 2/3

cup of lukewarm water. Give this mix time to absorb. 4 to 5 minutes.

3. roll it in brown rice bread crumbs. I have only used HOL-GRAIN bread crumbs.

4. Then put in in your pan with olive oil, salt it and cook it. Make sure you have

enough HOT oil so your chicken does not stick.

This is a 5 star out of 5. I make it for company & they love it.

If you want to include this in your recipe book it is ok with me.

Also my favorite gluten-free bread recipe I found on the internet:

http://bread.allrecipies.com/az/lisnsgltnfrbrd.asp

It doesn't have the right consistency for sandwhiches, but if you toast or broil it , it is YUMMY! My whole faimily eats it.

Thanks for all the recipe ideas and the support. I hijacked a Pastry chef friend of mine and she is going to help me expand my dessert section, becuase since I generally only cook "savory" cusine, my dessert section was lacking.

You guys are great!

Kathleen,

Here's a dessert recipe I posted in another thread recently. I've found versions of this recipe in several places, and I particularly like it because it doesn't involve any substitutions -- this is actually a recipe that people who can eat gluten can have. Not that I don't love cake made with gluten-free flour, but sometimes it's nice to just have something like everyone else would. I made this for Christmas this year and my non-celiac parents and their food-snob guests RAVED about it. It's light and airy but intensely flavored.

Here's a flourless recipe that's just incredible:

in heatproof bowl in pan of simmering water, melt 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate with 3 tablespoons water or coffee and 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla.

meanwhile separate 6 eggs and beat the whites into soft peaks.

Thanks Laura!

I have a decadence cake that is very similar, sometimes it's called a fallen souffle cake as well, because of the souffle method used to make it. However, I have never tried to make it into a roll cake and that sounds fantastic.

Just for everyone elses benifit, this cake is awesome served with fresh whipped cream, as suggested by Laura, but also with a raspberry sauce (made by pureeing raspberries, then straining them and adding sugar to taste, may need to heat in sauce pan to melt sugar). It's also very good coated in a chocolate ganache (50% chocolate & 50% heavy cream, melted together), then served with gluten-free vanilla ice cream.

Laura, I would love to see your almond cake recipe, I recently found an almond tart recipe that is really good, but I need to make it gluten-free.

Thanks again!

Well... I have to finish writting it first, but it's nearly there! After that, it goes to print and then you will probably be able to get it anywhere you would buy cookbooks. And I am counting on you to buy it!

Let us know when it comes out, and what the title is. My favorite bookstore has already told me that they will order it for me, if they do not have it in stock.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
