In Topic: Oh No! New Envirokidz Cereal Not gluten-free!

06 September 2008 - 05:05 PM

Whole foods just FINALLY opened up, just 5 miles from my house . . the first one in Richmond, VA . . ugg . .anyways, I saw they had more than twice as many envirokids cereals as my grocery store and smaller hfs - but also noticed that one of them didnt say gluten-free on it. I thought it was pretty lame that WF had that one righ in the center of the display and all the others were gluten-free and that one wasnt. I also believe the potato flour is 30 cents cheaper at my grocery store . . . geesh. Still, NO one carries the super-fine brown rice flour that Annalise Roberts recomends . . . :angry:

In Topic: Getting Over Other Food Intolerances

I kinda want to try NAET, but havent gotten there yet. Lots of people insist it sounds like quakery (and it does sound like quackery) but others swear it worked for them.

The book gluten free baking classics has a cheese puff recipe - i havent tried it because we dont do dairy any more (/cry) but it might be worth checking out. It looked more like a cracker, i think

In Topic: Sandwich Bread?

05 September 2008 - 06:02 PM

As far as flavour, I liked Annalise Robert's yeast bread . .

I have Annalise Robert's Gluten Free Baking Classics and her sandwhich bread has been my biggest success. I had a total failure w lorka's bread as well, and we didnt even like the flavor. The first time I made Robert's sandwhich bread, it fell badly, but my son still ate 3 pieces while it was warm. I finally gave in and bought a smaller (8x4) pan and a thermometer, so I can be sure the bread is done in the middle before I take it out of the oven. I think I also tried putting a pan of water in the oven. I did use her variation w sweet rice flour to make it taste and feel more like white bread, and I had to sub soy flour for the garfava because my son is allergic to garbanzo.

Anyways, this has become his bread. He eats it as a treat w cinnamon sugar and takes it to school for sandwhiches. I also made her sub sandwhich bread in small mini-cake-pans i purchased at Target. The dough made 5 rolls and i put them on a pizza pan with the 6th pan half-full of water in the center - he said they beat the rolls I used to make w chebe hands down.

I made her pizza dough, and made my own nomato sauce (he's allergic to tomatos AND to beets, the most comon sub) and soy cheese . . .and he said it was the best pizza sub he's had so far.

btw, I did end up buying a breadman bread machine - the black one w the gluten-free setting - mostly becuase the yeast was making me sick every time i made bread. It works well except if you dont take the paddle out at the beginning of the rise cycle, it tears the bread pretty badly. But as I said before, putting a pan of water in the oven, using the right size pan, and using a thermometer to make sure the bread is really done, has given me a real success in sandwhich bread.
