I was wondering if any of you experienced bread makers have tried either of these recipes and what your results were.

Thanks for your advice/tips/results!

I have made the Ginger Lemon Girl bread a lot, and it's really good, in a dense whole-grain kind of way. I follow her recipe except for the Sure Jell, which I leave out, and use 3 whole eggs instead of two whole eggs and two egg whites. I use butter instead of margarine. The trick is to know how much water to use - never use all of the water a bread recipe calls for until you know you really need that much. I put the dry ingredients in the Kitchenaid, including the brown sugar, and mix. Then I add the proofed yeast, the eggs, and the melted butter and start the mixer, with 1-1/4 c of warm water standing by. As the mixer starts incorporating the other wet stuff, I pour in the water slowly and watch the dry stuff at the bottom of the bowl. When all of the dry ingredients have become wet, that's usually enough water. This bread does not become light and airy. Only let it rise to the top of the pan, then bake for 10 minutes naked, then cover with foil for the rest of the baking time (that's another 45-50 minutes in my oven). It should feel a little springy in the center but not too much. Don't be afraid to bake for another 5 minutes if it feels squishy. This will stay moist for a few days at room temp, but I always let it cool, slice, and freeze in pairs.

Note: the King Arthur Flour pans that they recommend for gluten-free bread work well with this recipe, making nice square slices ideal for grilled cheese. Also note: I calculated the calories in this bread, and for a loaf divided into 14 slices, it came out to 200 calories a slice, so any sandwich starts with 400 calories before you even add filling!

Thanks for your info!!

I made the Ginger Lemon Girl recipe and it tasted good. I made a small loaf that fell a little and 5 hamburger buns that were so cute that I texted pics to my DD (its for her). The bread wasn't as high as I thought it would be but I will try it again. The temp was 203 when I took it out of the oven.

It's sooo much cheaper to make than the bread my DD usually buys and I'm sure it tastes better too. I sliced and wrapped them to freeze and I left one bun out so she can have BBQ beef on a BUN tomorrow!! and grilled cheese and hamburgers too!

Thanks very very much!!

    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)
       
    • Excellent point, GFinDC!!! I just assumed that Steph had the endoscopy and not just the antibodies tests.    
    • She (your PCP)  can order a celiac blood panel.  It might not be a complete panel, but it's a start.  Any medical doctor can order one.  A GI is needed for the endoscopy (ulcers, Celiac disease, h.pylori, etc.), HIDA scan (gallbladder)  or colonoscopy (IBS).   Since you just saw her, email/call/write a letter and ask her to order (lab) the celiac panel.  You could go to the lab before or after work.  Pretty easy!  
    • I just now saw the second reply and I see what you mean. Again, the issue is that I may have to go with the gluten until close to the end of the year.

      However, an idea did just come to mind, and that is, can my primary care doctor do such a test? I had normal blood work done, but they didn't really say anything about testing for celiacs. I can get an appointment with my primary care doctor much sooner than a GI.

      When I was talking to my PCP last, I asked her what I should expect as far as testing goes or what she may have been concerned about. Her reply was about a HIDA scan for the gallbladder but also any test needed in case of IBS or Celiacs. Just the way she threw that in there like an after thought and left me hanging kinda had me worried.
    • I am not a doctor that's for sure.  So, I can't even answer your questions.  If you know you have pre-diabetes, you probably are working with a doctor.  Can you email them and ask for a celiac blood panel?   You can work on the weight loss and diabetes -- that you can handle yourself now and take action.  I have diabetes and my glucose readings are fairly normal now without medication and I'm thin.  Being overweight does not cause diabetes.  It's either autoimmune (type 1) or you become insulin resistant (type 2).  You can cut out all sugar and  processed stuff ASAP to help take action and start walking 10,000 steps (helps with the insulin resistance).    But the prediabetes is not going to kill you in the next year.  Whatever's in your gut is more likely going to get you much sooner.  But heck, I'm not a doctor and I don't even know you!
