Love to especially since where you live is far warmer than where I do! I've been approached several times to open a restaurant - part of me wants to but my logical side says nay.

Especially warm to date with paper whites blooming in December. Do you know how to make a million dollars in a restaurant? Invest two million. :lol:;)

....exit the hijacking ..too good a topic to interrupt :) .

So true! :lol: I'd rather continue teaching cooking classes for the utmost in flexibility and no $2M investment! :D

Paper whites? Seriously? We've had snow for nearly a month already (although I missed part of it as we were on vacation). Yuck.

Will you be my Mommy? My personal chef? Marry me? The weather only just turned cold in the last few days (highs still 45-50)

Probably wouldn't work.

Do you have any bite sized desserts that I could make a day ahead for a party? Besides truffles. I have some of those recipe we like & I am going to make. They freeze well.

:lol::lol::lol: Sorry - my husband wouldn't be overly enthused if I were to leave him... :D

Nice temps! Man, I cannot imagine how nice it would be not to have to deal with "real" winters.

Will look for some bite-sized desserts for you as long as you send me some of your weather! :P

I think that one of our favorite naturally gluten free desserts is baked apples stuffed with homemade pumpkin butter. We love it so much that we make it for breakfast too:)

The Pate de Fruit is bite sized and you can make all sorts of flavours. Simple and elegant looking and fine made the day before.

How about homemade marshmallows? They are fun, funky and soooooo good. Mini pavlovas? You can make them the size of a cookie.

I think we will try the Pate de Fruit this weekend. Its like a fancy fruit gummy.

M would probably like to make the marshmallows sometime.

I live in Kansas City. Its usually much colder by now. We have just been lucky.

I'm not making the fancy fruit gummies this week. Raspberries were $4.99 for 6 oz. It would be $20 just for the raspberries! Frozen are cheaper, so I might try that.

Ouch - that is expensive! I've made them with other fruits such as blueberry, apple and cinnamon, and pear. Not sure what my favourite would be as I love them all!

Hub liked the idea. I just won't make a batch this weekend that we munch up & another next weekend.

for those who are dairy sensitive, coconut milk can be subbed in most recipes, including puddings/custards.

Ooooh! I just saw this list. Have to admit I don't recognize most of the items on it. But it may come in handy when I have to bring dessert!

My own favorite is:

Old Fashioned Tapioca Pudding, http://www.bobsredmill.com/recipe/printer.php?rid=858

Not to mention:

Indian rice pudding, http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aarti-sequeira/indian-rice-pudding-recipe/index.html

(an easy one in which to substitute coconut milk)

And now that it's the holiday season, how about:

Eggnog

Peppermint Bark

This thread reminded me of how many Indian desserts are naturally gluten-free. Here's a couple more:

Coconut Burfi, http://www.manjulaskitchen.com/2007/10/18/coconut-burfi/

Ras Malai, http://www.manjulaskitchen.com/2007/12/02/ras-malai/

(Manjula is amazing! She's like having a private tutor in Indian cooking.)

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
    • Rum is naturally gluten free, but in cases where it is flavored, spiced, etc. you have to be careful where they might add a malt in the natural flavorings. I been using Admiral Nelsons coconut rums in cooking for finishing off stir frys, and adding a bit of flavor to caramelized ingredients for a few years now, I have never had issues with those. As for the Morgan, I would be careful with the spiced version as they might use a malt based ingredient in it. I did a bit of research and like you found no conclusive evidence to if it contains gluten or not. The plain rum from them is listed on many and been tested by several groups and has come up gluten free. On a side note if your a celiac or have intestinal damage I would avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. I personally only use it in cooking.
    • Hi, It seems they advertise it as a malt beverage.  Malt is made from barley normally, so it would not be gluten-free.  Unless they specify the malt is corn malt, it is always assumed to be barley malt per FDA labeling regs.
