Yes. I think it's generally awesome for a box mac & cheese. I can only say that it is way better with the butter than without. I only know this because I once realized after I had the pasta in the water that I had no butter or I wouldn't know.

Has anyone had Annie's gluten free white chedder mac and cheese? Any tips on making it?

 

Used to get it for the kids...they like Sam Mills Mac and Cheese better now if you can find -- added bonus -- it is cheeper.

 

Oh and Velveeta is making a white block of cheese type food substance that is awesome tossed with any pasta shape.

Velveeta also makes cheese sauce in a packet now that you can just squeeze out onto your pasta that is easier even than the block. It's something like $2-3 for a box of 3. They're great for my husband. I can just cook up a batch of gluten-free pasta and throw that on there and it's perfect. And I may sneak a few bites no matter how bad I know it is for me. :ph34r: It's so yummy. I'm terrible, I shouldn't like things that aren't food.

Lemme know how they turn out and what recipe you use. I haven't made cookies yet and my husband just spent his day off carrying heaving stuff to my new kitchen for me instead of playing video games. And I'm dragging him shopping and to my vendor meeting. I don't think the rib eyes I decided on for dinner are gonna cut it for a thank you. The carpets are being cleaned tomorrow and I'm going to need recuperating time but I think I could manage some baking on Friday. Cookies sound like just the thing, and he loooooooooooves him some cookies.

I buy it regularly and really like it.  White rice pasta can overcook, but not as easily as corn pasta, so don't overcook it, and yes it is better with the butter added.  

 

Velveeta also makes cheese sauce in a packet now that you can just squeeze out onto your pasta that is easier even than the block. It's something like $2-3 for a box of 3.

I haven't seen those!  I would buy them once and enjoy, and then not again cause they are bad for me, haha.

The heat got bad today...so most of the day was spent "cleaning" the pool ; )

 

I am going to go for gold with the new gold flour -- our favorite cookie (pre-celiac), other than chocolate chip was crisp sugar cookies - a recipe passed from person to person -- often quickly at time -- never understood their name, but called "My Cup Sugar Cookies".

 

Can't wait -- no matter how they turn out I'll let you know....likely quite "loudly" if they are good as they are not only my favorite, but my Mom's  :wub: .

 

Tonight's crock recipe rocked!  The recipe calls for it to be served as sandwiches.  Was too hot so I was down in the pool...hubs took over -- at my suggestion he thickened the sauce, pulled a bit out for me, then added a can of diced tomatoes -- threw the whole deal over pasta with a side of yummy carrots :)

No. It's this one with some modifications

http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-hearty-chicken-pot-pie/78b0ab8f-a1c1-43a3-8258-e0bb35751d55

I use a 9x13 pan. So I use about 1 1/4 cup Bisquick for the crust - add a little extra milk if needed to get a thick consistency. I peel , cut boil , drain, 2 potatoes. I use about 1 cup milk and 21/2 cups chicken broth.

There is another recipe with canned soup that is good but pretty salty. Really easy though.

I have an amazing husband who worked his butt off on his day off for me. Halfway through the move I decided I wanted a little lunch. Exactly when the dishes were 100% in the new kitchen and the food was 100% in the old kitchen. Not exactly helpful for finding a meal. Lucky me I had one leftover slice of pizza that I threw in my little oven on a piece of foil and had that after it was warm. I dragged my husband off to my meeting, and will get a smaller space that better suits me that is in the shade for half the price for the markets. YAY!!! Went shopping for a few things we needed and finally splurged for something I've been dying for for months. This is our new move in gift to ourselves. http://www.chefn.com/Product.aspx?id=261

 

Dinner was pan fried rib eyes (balsamic glazed onions topping for me) with ore ida simply potato wedges and corn. Simple, yet perfectly delicious and a great way to end a long and stressful/wonderful day.

 

Also, last night I noticed a light rash on the backs of my hands. I shrugged it off thinking I must have gotten a little cleaner on me or something that irritated my skin. Today I got into no cleaners, only my dish soap and water. The rash has spread onto the backs of my fingers, one wrist and my hands very lightly yet noticeably puffy and warm to the touch. Panic time, popped the benadryl. I have no idea what the actual hell I'm reacting to. If it's worse when I get up I may end up in an instacare for my morning. Joy.

This is my new kitchen. It isn't large, but it's all mine! One from right after I finished cleaning and the other is after I moved in my stuff, the counter appliances and such are (maybe) where I like them.

Nothing wrong with the size of that kitchen -- loads of cabinets and less floor to mop :)

 

Another scorcher today so we continue with the week of KFG cooking...next up is the Balsamic Chicken recipe I posted yesterday -- don't think I'll be doctoring this one much except I'm using a whole cut up chicken -- hubs is a breast man ;)

You guys are funny. I'm not complaining about the size of the kitchen, was just mentioning that it's small. The only downside to it is if we're passing each other we're rubbing up against each other. Well, maybe that isn't a downside after all. ;) There is a "cabinet" around the corner (freestanding) to use as a pantry, that's what makes it feel small. The lack of a pantry.

 

I'm not sure exactly what will happen tonight for supper. He's working 2 hours earlier than usual to do a sleep study, but I had already made plans to go to my bff's office and work for her this evening (she's an accountant and I do bookkeeping stuff) thinking I'd be home before he gets home late. I guess he's on his own for dinner and to see himself off. I'll just have to feed myself and while that means I could have whatever I want, I'll probably just do something easy with little cleanup. Maybe that burger I keep saying I'm making and don't get around to.

I love your kitchen!

Cool bunnies set.  Do they come as a black and white set or your choose black OR white?

 

I love those tiered basket things.  (I bought one for myself then donated it to a fundraiser.  Maybe I thought I would buy it back, but the bids went too high.)

 

My whole house needs to be scrubbed!

It comes as a black and white set. I had intended when I went into the store to buy the plain little ball that is either red, blue or green and clear. But my husband was all omg this is so cute! And I was like yeah, it's freakin' adorable. And $20. (on sale!) We walked a bit and came back to it deciding we needed both a move in gift and could pass on a few other small things for a while to fit it into our budget. It isn't like they're on sale every day. I may have an impulse shopping problem. :ph34r:

 

My MIL bought that basket thing when I was doing the Bountiful Baskets produce thing every Saturday morning. There is also a hanging one upstairs. (which I'd prefer to have but takes more effort to move) She doesn't want/need them and told me to take this one so I did when I realized I had nowhere to put all my onions.

 

We were in a dollar store last night that is closing and I picked up a bargain $.75 bottle of Rainbow Dash colored nail polish. Today is manicure day for me.

My husband is away for a sleep study again tonight. He didn't sleep enough the first time to get enough readings to be conclusive about needing a c-pap so they're just going to try one to see if it helps since he obviously has at least a moderate apnea problem. I was at the office late (it feels so weird to say that!) with my best friend setting up all my accounts so I can start doing everything and doing taxes tomorrow. (lots of people file late, and there is lots of tax stuff to do all year round) So, with all this going on, I came home and had toast and fried eggs for supper and painted my nails while watching the episode of Grey's Anatomy I've been waiting months for!!!

 

I also haven't played a minute of video games for over 48 hours, which must be a record for me and haven't played more than 30-45 minutes at a time since last weekend. So, since I'm alone and in far too much pain for sleep I think I'm going to have a late night gaming session to give my nails the time they need to set. And I need some fun since tomorrow is "relax" day while I sit and lose myself in a virtual stack of tax paperwork. A mecca. ^_^ (I'm twisted)

Last night's Balsamic Chicken rocked the crock....also did something I found brilliant...I married Addie's Brazilian Cheese Bread with Jamie's new donut pan - really worked well..instead of puffs it made firmer cheesy bread rings...hubs hasn't made fun of the donut pans crowding the cupboard...between chocolate carmel donuts and cheesy rings...I think they are safe (he tends to "clear" out kitchen items when I'm horizontal, meanwhile there is an entire shop and storage room downstairs that never gets "cleared of crap" ;)

 

Still cool here...that'll change in a couple hours...might be one more night of crockin'...Spider-Man with the men late afternoon/early evening - can't wait.

 

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps  :wub:

    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
    • Try to stick to a whole foods diet.  Things like unseasoned stew, soup, etc.  Things easy-to digest, preferably not processed by a anyone except you.  Too often new celiacs start using gluten-free foods (cookies, bread, crackers).  Your body is not used to these grains and they often contain lots of junk.  For example, I react to Xantham gum.  It does not bother my gluten-free hubby, but it gets me every single time!   Did you read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping"?   It contains lots of valuable tips.  Make sure those meds are gluten free.  Supplements too.   I hope you feel better soon!    
    • Here are the actual tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Insist on the complete panel.  Let them know (your doctor) that your father had celiac disease.   Document in writing!  If you have celiac disease, your life can be improved.  All the things I attributed to aging were actually related to celiac disease.  It is never too late to feel well!  I am in my 50's but my Aunt iis 81.  We celebrate a Gluten free Thanksgiving every year!   Oh, my kid does not have celiac disease, but she is tested every few years even though she is symptom free!  There are silent celiacs.  My symptom?  Anemia.  No tummy issues.   Please advocate for your health.  Keep all records.  Doctors can not ignore written facts and requests.
