Warm stewed apple with So Good Bliss ice cream. It's winter, but we live in the tropics.

Dance, I really, truly, sincerely adore your 'quote'.

(That thing that goes at the bottom of all you posts. Don't know what it is technically referred to as. Irish will!)

:D:) You're welcome.

(I love my drawstring pants.)

Hey, Sora....are our moo-moos here yet? We put that order in weeks ago. :unsure:

Tonight, we are having No dessert.

sigh, my Bikini is too tight. I tried it on yesterday and the top burst open and flew 50 feet across the yard, hit the cat who was sunning herself, which prompted her to run smack into the screen house at full speed, rip open a section of screening and then, I had to explain it to hubs when he got home from golf.

oops?

Easy, yummy Flan

Ingredients:

1 cup and 1/2 cup sugar

6 large eggs

1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk

2 13 oz cans evaporated milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. You will need 6 ramekins or other specialty flan cook ware and a large baking pan to put them in.

Pour 1 cup sugar in warm pan over medium heat. Constantly stir sugar until is browns and becomes caramel. Quickly pour approximately 2-3 tablespoons of caramel in each ramekin, tilting it to swirl the caramel around the sides. Move fast! It hardens quickly. Reheat caramel if it starts to harden.

In a mixer or with a whisk, blend the eggs together. Mix in the milks then slowly mix in the 1/2 cup of sugar, then the vanilla. Blend smooth after each ingredient is added.

Pour custard into caramel-lined ramekins. Place ramekins in a large glass or ceramic baking dish and fill with about 1-2 inches of hot water. Bake for 45 minutes in the water bath and check with a knife just to the side of the center. If knife comes out clean, it's ready.

Remove and let cool. Let each ramekin cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Invert each ramekin onto a small plate. I loosen it by running a sharp paring knife around the edges before inverting it and the caramel sauce will flow over the custard.

Pretty... and tasty.

I swear to St. Brigid, my pants got tight just typing this damn thing out....

Happy Birthday, Hon!!! Hope it was fun!!

Tonight we are having fresh strawberries from a nearby farm with freshly whipped cream I spike with vanilla.

and P.S. to SORA--I am glad you started the thread after we talked about it on the other thread!

Just what my tight pants need--more ideas. :lol:

Thank you IrishHeart, it was a good day except for my 2 year old getting her first cast :( But other then that it was great, wish I would have thought to make whipped cream for that apple pie.

Anyway tonight is not really a sweet dessert, the kids and I are watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs after reading the book and are having buttery salt and cracked pepper popcorn with it.

Never got to this last night so I made it tonight.

Sauteed apple slices in butter and maple syrup and a tiny pinch of cinnamon. Put the ice cream on top. Delicious.

Always impressive when one quotes oneself AND makes something delicious in the process.

Sounds scrumptious. I love cinnamon.

Last night I cut up a mango and intended to have half of it for dessert and half today. Before I realized what I was doing I had pretty much inhaled the whole thing. :ph34r:

Been playing in the kitchen today. Brownie in a mug to be exact. It came out pretty good so I am going to try one with Carob for myself.

If only there was a Tiramisu in a cup recipe.

Daughter's birthday yesterday and I was going to make Tiramisu but she said no so we bought a Strawberry Mousse cake. We got it half price when she told the guy at the counter it was her birthday. :)

It was 'Wheatified' so I ate some Glutino pretzels for the first time. My god they are good!

    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
    • Wow I'm gonna be a skinny Minnie in no time rather than a bloated and confused Thankyou I'll try look at these images 4 days gluten free
