I got a grain mill and ground 1/2 white rice and 1/2 brown rice in flour. I then made some corn flour out of popcorn.

The kids were able to have "corndogs" for lunch today. Not that I want them to eat that meat all the time but it does take away some of the stress of the 'no" to everything all the time.

Next time, I will add some kind of starch to my mix - probably tapioca - as it was a little crumbly. The taste was awesome!! If everything turns out like this, the only thing we will miss about wheat is the convenience.

Congrats on your culinary success! :) I am sure Mom feels good today!

You could try this next time (she lists measurements for baking powder, gelatin, etc) which may help with the "crumbly aspect":

That sounds fun! Do you mind me asking what brand/model the mill is?

I ordered just a plain, no frills vitalmill.

I decided that was going to be cheaper in the long run than buying all the premade flours since the whole family is gluten-free. I'm in the experimenting phase now but we all were impressed with the flavor.
