I had months to make peace with mostly cutting out fried foods. (stupid useless gallbladder) The celiac thing kind of blindsided me since neither my doctor or me suspected it. (diagnosed by a total fluke) So I may miss chicken nuggets, mozz sticks and onion rings, but there's no point learning to make things I really shouldn't be eating anyway.

I made this amazing artisan french bread. Dense but still somehow airy, melt in your mouth, close your eyes in ecstasy bread. A raved about staple of Christmas gift baskets. It may be years until I can resist temptation enough to make it for gift baskets.

Red velvet cake. Quite possibly the second most amazing dessert in existence. (Nothing can top tiramisu, my first real baking project after mastering pie crust will be lady fingers.)

Grilled cheese. Okay, so sure I can get a knife, fight with a frozen loaf of Udi's for 5 minutes trying to pry 2 slices off, then defrost it, then slap together a sandwich. But frankly, it just isn't the same.

I totally get the Pop Tarts thing. My husband walked in with a box of some new tropical flavored ones about a week ago. "Oh, you wouldn't have liked them anyway." Really? Hi, have we met? Tropical fruit? omg yes please! I was tempted to beat him senseless with the box.

Happily you CAN have great gluten free red velvet cake as cakes are amongst the simplest things to make gluten free. :) Anyway, here is a good red velvet cake recipe: ://www.glutenfreecookingschool.com/archives/gluten-free-red-velvet-cake/. I have another in one of my books.

I believe someone posted a recipe for Pop Tarts on here not long ago.

Welsh Rarebit on thick sourdough. However, I am going to try it on my own bread because I just love it so darned much! I'll make it work. And not just work - taste wonderful! :D

You are my hero! After the disappointment I suffered with cookies I've been scared of cake but that looks heavenly. I did see the recipe for the Pop Tarts but it's more trouble than they're worth to me. I may change my mind after years without them.

No problem. Honestly, cakes are even easier to make gluten free than cookies. Probably the easiest of all is brownies, then cakes and cupcakes and quick breads, then cookies...oh, and pastry is very simple to make - actually, even easier than gluten pastry because it doesn't fight back. It just sits there! :P

I am really missing pizza, after a few years of no dairy and no tomatoes. I could probably manage to make and allergen-free crust but what to put on it? All the cheese alternatives are out due to other allergens-soy and tapioca. No nightshades so no red pepper sauce. No matter what it would be more of a foccacia than a pizza. I could make an olive an rosemary foccacia but just not the same without a gooey or saucy element. Some kind of dipping sauce for my foccacia? maybe a balsamic and oil might be ok but still not pizza.

Had to really laugh out loud at the Udi's comment. Did this just the other day, I thought, let me grab a piece of toast on my way out, opened the bag could not get a single slice, put it back in the freezer and grabbed a rice cake.
And I applaud your restraint with not beating your husband senseless :)

Ditto on the frozen bread ordeal. I actually had to get stitches in my thumb one Thanksgiving from trying to separate the slices. All I wanted was to make some breadcrumbs!

I think the thing I miss the most is perogies!
I've made a perogi casserole which is mashed potatoes layered with cheese and lasagna noodles which is totally yummy...but not exactly the same...
I tried making my own perogies also...but the dough is pretty hard to work with to get them to stay together...:S



Good news! Simona posted a pierogis recipe in the recipe section! Check it out:

You know, guys....I read through this whole thread (and felt a little bit sad, truth be told) but I also realized there is almost always a "plan B" for most of these foods and ways to make them taste good.

I have to say that I completely agree with meatball man's statement--he said he misses the convenience of eating whatever he wants, wherever he wants. That's what I miss, too. It is hard for a major foodie (as I once once)to give up tasting everything from the simple to the exotic with reckless abandon and then coming home to recreate it. I miss the spontaneity of just getting in the car and eating at cozy diners on back country roads while we are out taking photographs. We need a chain of "gluten free eateries" to spring up across the country and we'll all be golden. B)

That's it. That's what I miss the most. :(

Chef??

Are you coming back? You have not been back since this first post.

These sweet people have poured their hearts out telling you what they miss.

Hello?? :blink:

He hasn't been back since Oct. This forum doesn't allow advertising in posts so perhaps there is no point for him to come back and try to sell us a book or something else.

I think the chef has abandoned us.

He has not been back since this first post back in October '11

so we may be talking to the air at this point. :huh:
