You can all come over for some! ^_^ My husband was poking fun at me because they didn't have "nooks and crannies" when I split them. But they're light and fluffy and ohmygawd! I don't know if it's that it's been so long or that they're simply wonderful but he even said they were really good so I'm going with option B. Better hurry if you're gonna get here before they're all gone!

Aren't these the most beautiful thing in the world? Maybe not having an english muffin in 3 years has simply made me crazy, but the 20 minute wait to pop one open after taking them out of the oven is KILLING ME!

There are frozen English Muffins at my grocery store--I can't remember the brand off hand.  Have you tried them?  I'm hesitant to spend $8 on them if they are awful.  I used to eat English Muffins for breakfast frequently.  

 

I wonder if you can make English Muffin bread with your recipe as well?

That whole $8 thing... yeah, that's a problem for me. I tend to stand and stare and stare and stare through the freezer door until I eventually walk away because ARE THEY FREAKING SERIOUS? Who pays $8 for english muffins? I still haven't talked myself into the baguette that everyone says is awesome and it's "only" $7. One day. Maybe. $7? GAH!

J and I made english muffins more than once and I thought they just tasted like any other homemade G F bread product...like a fluffy roll. 

 

Did you think they were "English muffins" for "reals"? ^_^ . 

 

Now, are these from the America's Test Kitchen G F cookbook that you are blazing through?

I do. I pay $8 for them--- because my hubs really  likes them and all the ones we made (using up all that flour and starch that costs just as much) tastes like a roll. He doesn't want a roll. He wants an English muffin. ^_^

And he should have one that's as close to the real deal as it gets.

Yes. I am just blazing through the book! I went last week and bought 5 more pounds of rice flour and I'll probably need more again next month. :ph34r:

 

My husband says that they didn't taste like and english muffin to him. For me? It's been 3 years. I'm not sure I remember exactly what they're supposed to taste like. They were bready, light, fluffy, they split like a frickin' dream with a fork. Toast beautifully and are melt in your mouth perfect. English muffin? I can't say because it's been too long. But it's delicious and perfect and I'll for sure be making them again and again and again.... They'll also hold up really well for breakfast sandwiches. I just wish I wasn't so awful at making them into actual circles. Some of them were rather oblong. :lol:

yeah, addy - fork over the recipe <see what i did there) i might make them in 2021.......................

 

j/k, but i have been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.  this weekend i had so many things to do ANYWAY but after we got daughter, grandsons and their 2 cats and dog out of the house, they left me a wonderful gift:  flea infestation.  (we don't have any pets anymore) so, have been vacuuming, vacuuming, trying this and that to NOT have to bomb the house.  i think we are losing.......   :blink:   didn't want to poison the whole place, but it looks like it is inevitable.  going to buy bombs today.  even when we had dogs, we have *never* had a problem.  i hate everybody.

 

and that's why dinner is macaroni and cheese, because it's comfort food.  and it goes well with tears of frustration.   :mellow:  (and bacon)  ^_^

She's using the recipe from America's Test Kitchen's  "How can It be Gluten Free" cookbook, hon.

 

Maybe we can cut and paste it from the website. I'll take a look.

 

Okay, I'm back.  ^_^

 

They are willing to give some "freebie info" away.... but that EM recipe is not there.

And maybe it's copyrighted and we could get in trouble. They might send an infestation of fleas down upon us! I think nuclear bombs are the only way to get rid of fleas? Or maybe that was cockroaches?

I'll check my cookbook later when I'm in the kitchen, but my guess is there is something in the front of the book about how you're not allowed to post their crap on the interwebz. But even if I can, I can't recommend enough getting that book! There are just too many awesome things in it.

 

I think tonight we're going to have some chile and garlic chicken and mac & cheese and some whatever veggie I find in the freezer first. I'm far too lazy to put effort into food right now. I'm in high gear getting food ready for comic con so the daily stuff is gonna have to just take a hit.

 

I'm thinking it's pedi day!

I don't often say this about a gluten-free cookbook as I generally cook from regular recipes and just make necessary subs for gluten, but the ATK gluten-free book is worth purchasing.

I'm the same way. I look up recipes online, use an AP flour as a sub in my regular recipes and generally get along just fine. This is my first gluten-free cookbook and it was a gift. Honestly, I don't know how I survived the last 2 1/2 years without it. I'd rescue it if the house was burning down!

I own this ATK cookbook, I gave it to 2 friends as gifts and I admit I have not made a single thing from it yet.

:D but that's only because my thighs do not need any of those things right now.

 

I also own several other cookbooks, several gluten-free ones too and I love to recipe search, adapt and create. Even though I am a decent cook and baker, we never stop learning and playing with our food. One of the ways to get over fearing food and being intimidated by the G F life is to embrace cooking and baking once more. 

 

For the relatively fair price and the information presented in the book, I'd suggest buying it as well, icelandgirl.

All this cook book talk! It's making me want to get out of bed and cook something, but alas, it's 1am and I don't wanna get up and shouldn't eat this late. But I did kill it at Aldi's today! I was able to buy some fresh fruits and veggies (first time in a while), and tomorrow I'm gonna hit them up for some fresh meats (forgot my "stays cold" bag at home today

I totally agree with everyone on this!

 

Today we went out to a local italian place and I had chicken marsala with sauteed spinach.  Was pretty good!  About to make nachos for a late dinner.

Make you some nachos!!!!!!  I know you cook for one, if you make your taco meat moist, like put some tomato sauce in there, it freezes really well.  I will make a pound at a time and that is 2 meals for the hubby and I, I just put the rest in ziplocs or a tupperware thing and freeze it.  Meat, cheese, chips.  Refried beans (bush's are gluten-free) are really good smeared on the chip first, too.  Pile it on!  I like the tostitos restaurant style chips because they are big, flat, and sturdy.  Frito lay and says gluten-free on the back.

 

When I first was told I needed to go gluten-free (When they forgot to tell me I had celiac yet) the first meal I made was nachos.  I was like, oh, this isn't gonna be THAT bad!  Memories...  One time newly diagnosed we made a late night trip to walmart and my husband wanted to get himself some taco bell.  We had gotten a bag of cheetos and I ate nearly the whole thing out of sadness.  Never was a huge fan of taco bell since there are much better Mexican fast food places in TX, but its the whole mourning my ability to eat what I want kind of thing.  

 

Speaking of Taco Bell, I read on a food blog that someone is coming out with nacho cheese taco shells in the grocery store.  I want to say it was old el paso, I hope they turn out to be gluten-free because I will scarf that down for sure!!!

The nacho cheese taco shells are Old El Paso. They are gluten free. They are okay, but not awesome. I was not impressed. My husband brought them home instead of the usual white corn ones for me this last week. I'm glad we tried them, but I won't be eating them again. I'll stick to my white corn hard shells when I do hard shells.

I'm making a pork roast with oven browned potatoes tonight.  I haven't had this in a long, long time.  You need a fatty roast to make it work and they just trim too much fat off meat these days.  I got a larger pork steak that was well marbled so I'm hoping it works.  The juices/fat from the roast caramelize the potatoes and they are oh so yummy..oh so not good for you but who cares :D.
