Topics I've Started

Middle School Book Club

09 June 2012 - 11:25 AM

My boy is going to be in a book club this summer. He is used to not eating snacks at other homes but I really want to make it special for him and to also show people that behind our walls we (mostly the kids) are not deprived.

Now, we are also milk (including cheese/yogurt and all), soy, egg, peanut, almond (and some little stuff) free. In basic recipes, it is not that hard to sub. but obviously milk/egg desserts are out.

I've thought of homemade rice krispy treats, cupcakes...what are some other "treat" type things I could prepare??

Homemade Flour

26 May 2012 - 09:54 AM

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.

Hubby is my problem child when staying on the diet. I have made a connection between his rash (DH?!) and gluten. Things were going great but then he grabbed a corn dog (all cornmeal he thought) :angry: . Now he has his yucky, oozy (because he scratches) polka dots again. Is there some kind of super easy lists for beginners?? The kind that would say for the kitchen illiterate "cornbread is made with cornmeal AND wheat" or something like that?

I'm looking for some new fiber. Need one free of not only wheat related products but also oat.

Anyone Make Your Own "flour"

05 May 2012 - 06:20 AM

I'm shocked at the prices of substitute flours. Has anyone ground your own rice to make your flour? I'm planning on experimenting since soy and most nut flours are out for us and I hate the taste of many on the rice subs. I want to try a mix of rice, coconut (for fiber and body) and maybe flax seed (for some binding/lift since we don't do eggs either). Anyone do anything like that?
