I am so excited to try Stephanie O'Dea's recipe for crock pot buffalo chicken casserole! I bought her cookbook last week out of menu boredom (I was in a super frustrated place - it gets tiring cooking all the time! Can I get an amen!?) I can't wait to go home and try it! I also bought the cookbook Against All Grain. Excited for both of them. I love perusing recipes and menu planning before bed.

ima need that sweet onion crack dip, ms k  ^_^

 

yesterday, i made the baking beauties version of bette hagman's french bread.  and i changed it (b/c i didn't have enough tap starch) lolz - MIRACULOUSLY it turned out great!  i made little baguettes and froze most of them.  went to a mardi gras party last night and brought my own bbq shrimp.  it's a cajun recipe tweaked by my italian friend.....   the hostess of the party e-mailed me her menu and i just made one or two things that were similar to bring for me to eat. 

 

i can't tell you how happy i was with the bread!  i think i have this flour mixing thing going on ;)  <she says confidently, thereby jinxing herself......... <_<

I used Miracle whip instead of the mayo..... Nah! Just kidding! :lol: . I used sour cream instead - hub hates Mayo and Mayo- like products so much that he can't walk down that isle in the grocery. It's yummy. It re- heats in the micorwave. And the left- overs cold from the fridge are very very yummy crumbled on a salad. Probably be good on a burger or sandwich.

Just got back from a great trip to see a friend... Gosh I love Seattle!  Great gluten-free dining options. Pulled some chicken tenders out of the freezer and grilled them up on the george foreman, served with some canned veggies.  Gotta go get some groceries tomorrow!  

 

While at her house we made gluten-free chicken fried steak.  Mmmmmmm.

When I found out the company that makes the only taco seasoning I like (that doesn't have msg) was out of business I cried. This was quite a while ago and I've tried others or making my own since then and wasn't happy with any. Then one afternoon in the hippie store as I walked down an aisle I saw an entire box of my taco seasoning! Apparently they had an old box laying around. I quickly grabbed ALL OF THEM. I practically skipped to the checkout.

 

So tonight was tacos. Amazing, perfect, delicious tacos. And Mexican rice. I'm so happy I'm not even missing the salted caramel hazelnut ice cream I finished off last night.

We had a really yummy Smoked turkey and bean soup. Fabulous flavor - slightly spicy and nicely smoky.

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2012/10/smoky-turkey-and-black-bean-soup.html

I used a big piece of turkey they called a "turkey tenderloin" but you could probably put a turkey breast in, too. Used frozen corn , onion and frozen spinach - didn't thaw them. I added another can of beans, forgot to pulverize a little before I put the shredded turkey back in. Next time, I would add a can of Great Northern beans toward the end. Maybe put a little colby Jack cheese on top.

Just to stop this argument before it starts - Liquid Smoke is gluten free - even said so on the container.

tonight is the 'skinny wednesday' lent and all that at church, so they are making pancake supper.  yah.  i'm not venturing into the kitchen tonight!  luckily, last time i made crepes, i made extra and froze them.  i has bacon :)  and when they ask me what i'm eating ima say 'pancakes'  and they will want some and i'll make that face and say "ooooh....  sorry..........  they're gluten free.  (you wouldn't like them........)  sorryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.........."

I discovered this recently when we decided to make beef jerky. Every possible kind that exists for sale locally is safe so they probably all are. And also, homemade jerky is delicious!

Isn't a hippie store entirely a freak section? We used to make so many jokes when we needed something from one of those stores, and now we shop at them all the time. <_< Still make the jokes though, and for some reason we never lock our doors when we shop there. Because the new age, healthy, eat right, do-gooders aren't the kind of people that would steal stuff out of your car, right? And we both watch Adult Swim, so we've probably both at least laughed at jokes about burn victims and/or lepers. Not sure, my memory isn't so great but I'm almost certain there have been lepers. We may still be screwed. :P

I love Stephanie O'Dea's recipes. I even wrote to her to say thanks for sharing so many on her website and she wrote back to say thank you to me--for letting her know I liked them. Very nice gal. :)

I may try this one next.

 

And K.. I printed the onion crack dip recipe. I've got incoming peeps next week--they will love it.

 

I went to P F Chang's in Palm Beach Gardens yesterday. My virgin dining experience there. 

J loves Chinese food and as my G F in solidarity partner,

I felt I should take a leap of faith for him.

 

The waitress was a doll (she and her her hubs are gluten-free--he has UCI). The manager came over when he heard it was my first time and he gave me a spiel about how they take it seriously. Gave me a $10 gift card to use. 

The food was exceptionally good. I am not a big fan of chinese (I do LOVE Thai food) but I wanted Jack to have a meal OUT. We really liked it!  We had "encores" for dinner.

I told the manager that I review for Find me Gluten Free and Trip Advisor. He seemed to like that. The mongolian beef and spicy chicken, pork fried rice and spinach and garlic. YUM

I did not eat the fortune cookie of course, but J opened it for me. It said "One hour spent with good friends is better than 10 spent with strangers"....well, duh. lol

Found this recipe for Tortillas's I think I really want to try it! What do you guys think?

 

 

Like corn tortillas, these become pliable when heated. Pop them in the microwave or warm them in a dry skillet before using. If you like crispy edges, add a little oil to the pan when reheating.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 cup yellow split peas
  • 1/4 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • oil for the pan

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cover the split peas and rice with 2 inches of water. Cover and set aside on the counter overnight.
  2. Drain the peas and rice, then put them into the bowl of a food processor. Add the salt, then process until the mixture is finely chopped, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. With the motor running, gradually pour in ½ cup water. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then continue to process for 3 minutes. The batter should be the consistency of pancake batter (but grainy). If it’s too thick, stir in a spoonful or more of water.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add a thin layer of oil. Pour in 1/3 cup of the batter, then spread it around with a rubber spatula until you have a 7-inch tortilla. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the tortilla is golden around the edges. Flip and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute more, until bottom side is lightly freckled. Remove from the pan, then repeat the process for the remaining batter.

Yield: 7 torti

This was gross!! 1st it made 3 and it tasted like raw split peas! Blek!

Sorry, hon...I was pretty sure you would find that to be the case, but we do not discourage experimentation on this thread.

 

Sadly, some things just cannot be "turned into tortillas". Ah well, you tried.  :)

 

I know you say you cannot have corn, but why can't you make rice flour tortillas?

does something in those cause a problem too? (not sure of where you are in figuring out food

issues)  There are many recipes out there--try googling Jules Gluten Free and there is this one:

So true. Unfortunately, not everything comes out as nicely as we'd like. Thankfully, some things come out just perfectly. :)

 

Tonight will be more tacos. Yum!

 

There was an incident over the weekend involving a mallet and my left hand, which is my bad side. I've more or less lost the use of my thumb as a thumb. I can't grasp or lift anything with it and the pain has quickly escalated and spread. Thankfully, I am finally getting in to see a pain doctor this month and hopefully will get this with everything else under control. I don't know what I'll do if I can't get back more use of my thumb or lose it altogether. For now I at least still have motion.

LOL W8in, sorry you have to be the guinea pig but glad you posted feedback... when I saw recipe that I wondered why the peas weren't cooked.

 

Yesterday I made chicken broccoli rice casserole, today I made grilled chicken with asparagus and rice.  My george foreman grill seems to have crapped out on me and only the top burner heated up.  Need to look around and order a new one ASAP because I cook on it all the time.  This one lasted a year, but I bought it refurbished so I guess that was the tradeoff for the cheapness.

I got a Cuisinart grill instead of a George Foreman when I replaced mine. I picked it up on sale at Costco for something like $60. It has removable plates that reverse and can be used as a griddle if you open it flat. I love it and use it all the time, it's my favorite thing for so much. You can also purchase waffle inserts for it. I think those may be my Christmas present this year. B)

 

Also, I just about had a heart attack when I saw it on their website. They list it for $100! I've never loved my Costco membership more. :wub:

Oooh I like that one!  If you cook something that a lot of fat comes off of, like burgers, does it drain off the fat into something or a certain spot?

This is my question, too?  It looks like it has a hole in the back and the grease would just spill out onto the counter.  Some of the gluten-free grills don't seem to have a good grease catcher, either.

No prob! :) I had another lil recipe for bread. It had Almond Flour, egg and a sweetner or garlic, and water. You put it in a cup and microwave it. Reminded me of the 3-2-1 cake. Anyhow do you think I can find the recipe?? Nope! I loved that bread.

    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
