Topics I've Started

Salt Dough?

11 September 2007 - 04:25 AM

My daughter brought home a list of ingredients that she will need for tomorrow's lesson. They are making something with salt & flour dough. Her ingredient was salt-right! I'll have to send everything so she can make a safe batch, but what kind of flour is best for this project?

It calls for 16-oz salt, 1-lb flour and water. I'll happily send everything she needs, but I want to be sure it works the way the teacher is expecting.


Gluten Free Doritos!

28 April 2007 - 08:30 AM

I found White Nacho Doritos the other day and was thrilled to see they are gluten free. They taste almost exactly like the original gluten-filled variety. Unfortunately, it is a promotional item. They are pitting them against BBQ Cheddar Doritos and only one will go into the full line at the end of the promo. Please, please vote for the nacho Doritos! I am so excited to have an old "friend" back and will be incredibly sad to lose them again.

You can vote at http://fftf.doritos.com/ once each day!

Baby Vitamin Supplements?

16 April 2007 - 05:28 AM

DD seems to be having trouble with her iron levels, which makes sense considering her diet. She gets really tired all the time, almost like a glutening again even when we know she hasn't been. When I tried thinking back on her diet I realized she had to be low in iron. No more fortified cereals or breads. She can't eat meat. She's not on formula. I did some research and found the highest iron level in her diet were sweet potatoes and raisins so we try to make sure she eats them regularly. She has more energy, but not so pretty diapers.

Does anyone give their baby vitamins or iron supplements?

Another Is This Dh Question

15 April 2007 - 05:51 PM

My 17 month old was diagnosed celiac in October after failure to thrive, constipation and allergy tests due to "hives" after certain foods. She has been gluten free ever since, but occasionally gets a rash on her cheeks. We can't seem to connect it to food, but cross contamination is not out of the question as we do eat out and tend to buy mostly mainstream products as opposed to dedicated gluten free items.

The rash is bright red on both cheeks, pimply and sometimes blistering. It doesn't seem to bother too much in that she messes with it, but she is often crankier than usual when it appears. Does it sound like DH or at least something connected to gluten? She also still has trouble with meat so I'm wondering if we are dealing with something else in addition to celiac.

Any input is appreciated!

Who Needs Pie?

11 April 2007 - 01:09 PM

My aunt used to bring this dessert to every family dinner. I made it for Easter, substituting Pamela's gluten free baking mix for the flour in the original recipe. It turned out great-everyone ate it and didn't notice a difference. I thought it was slightly sweeter, but absolutely fantastic!

Lush (I have no idea where the name came from, but I have been a serious lush with the leftovers so maybe that's it!)

1/2 c chopped pecans
1 stick butter or margarine, softened
1 c Pamela's gluten free baking mix
1 8-oz pkg cream cheese
16-oz tub whipped topping
2 3-oz pkg instant chocolate pudding mx
3 c milk

Stir first 3 ingredients until smooth. Press into 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 10-11 minutes. Cool completely (this is key!) Mix cream cheese with 1 c whipped topping (reserve rest for top layer). Spread mixture onto cooled crust. I find this works best if you drop it on in a few places before attempting to spread so as not to lift the crust. Whisk pudding mix with milk and pour over mixture. Once set, add remaining whipped topping for the top layer. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

You can garnish with chopped nuts, colored sprinkles or even fruit. My aunt once created a flag with blueberries and strawberries for the 4th of July. I generally make the crust at night then finish in the morning. By lunch, it is chilled and ready to serve. This dessert is rich, but heavenly! I think it is almost like a chocolate cream pie only better.
