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!

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.)

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
