Hey Guys!
While there seems to be 1000's of gluten-free recipes, it seems hard to find excellent ones.
I am making it my mission to figure out how to make gluten-free food that is as good as the next guys....
so here is my question...
Is there something you are dying to eat but there is no good recipe for?
For instance, I am hungry for some gluten free jalapeno poppers, but the few
recipes I have seen don't look great.
What about you?
What are you hungry for?


THANKS!

I would love it if someone could make a gluten free, dairy free, soy free Krispy Kreme donut that tasted just like the original. I only ate those donuts on certain Sundays and sometimes on vacation, but it would be nice to know it could be done.

I wish we could buy gluten-free puff pastry and phyllo dough. I've seen recipes but they look daunting.

I have discovered so many naturally gluten-free foods that I rarely or never ate before being forced to go gluten-free: polenta, quinoa, so many kinds of rice, amaranth, rice wrappers, collard leaves as wrappers, risotto... I find that there are so many naturally gluten-free recipes that are DELICIOUS! Much of the world eats a naturally gluten-free diet anyway. And now I cook much more, so I enjoy better food, in general. My husband would tell you the same thing.

That said, if you are really pursuing excellent gluten-free food, I'd suggest looking at some of the gluten-free blogs. Gluten Free Girl would be a good place to start.

They ARE daunting. I have successfully made recipes for nearly everything now but do wish that these two things were available. Oh, and buttery croissants. Of course, ciabatta and other crusty chewy breads.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have been reading some great gluten-free blogs, and observing their ways :)
What do you make with rice paper? I just made a dumpling recipe with rice flour, but I really want to start using rice paper.

I just read that France just made its first gluten-free eclair.
This could be good news for us if it catches on :D

I've made those, actually, and they were very good. The same choux pastry is used for profiteroles (cream puffs).

Just thought of another - big, puffy yeast doughnuts. Not the cake ones - those are easy.

The only thing I make with rice paper is actually one of my favorite meals. I use it as a wrap made with breast meat chicken, avocado and grated carrots. It's all in the dipping sauce though, usually a mixture of sweet and spicy, depending on my mood. It takes a little practice to work with the rice paper, but so worth it!!!!

I love Thai Spring rolls about 100 different ways; with ground pork, shrimp, chicken, duck, scallops, lobster, ground chicken, beef, lots of veg and lemongrass and vermicelli, toasted peanuts, black sesame seeds, etc.

Though I am not a fan of Martha Stewart by any stretch, this is a good basic shrimp wrap recipe from her website (though it is by Donna Hay):

Another interesting way is this rice-paper wrapped salmon.

Excellent! Hope you like it. It is a different way to prepare salmon and use the rice paper.

Proofreader, copy editor, herb gardener and an evolving gluten-free cook.

Had a reaction to wheat, oats, rye, and barley in a lab test done by a homeopathic doctor in 1997. Have been mostly gluten-free since then. Also highly allergic to MSG.

Here's a quote I ran across when researching self-advocacy for children with special needs that I like: "Our subconscious picks up on each positive action we take on our own behalf, lifting the spirit and deepening our self-respect." Kat James
