Topics I've Started

Glutinous Rice Flour

22 September 2008 - 11:17 AM

What is this and is it safe? I saw it on the shelf beside the regular rice flour at an Asian grocery today. The ingredient list only said "rice." Thanks.

Yellow Cake Recipe On Allrecipes.com

19 September 2008 - 06:42 PM

I made cupcakes from this recipe tonight for the first time. They were tasty but nothing like "real" yellow cake. However, I could feel my arteries hardening as I mixed up the batter. There must be enough cholesterol and fat in those things to sink a ship! Has anyone experimented with a lower fat version? A related question ... why use mayo at all? Why not just more eggs and oil, as that is all mayo is?

I need to find a good lower fat cake recipe. We seldom eat desserts, but I don't want to serve something that's not very healthy if I can find an alternative. Any ideas? Thanks.

"tinny" Taste In Breads

15 September 2008 - 09:23 AM

We're still fairly new to celiac and haven't tried a whole lot of different brands and products. We have noticed a distinctly "tinny" or metallic taste in the gluten-free breads we've made. At first we thought it was from the brand new bread machine and would eventually go away with use. I have only made breads in it that are primarily rice flour. However, we then noticed the same taste in the Bob's Red Mill pizza crust mix, for which I did not use the bread machine. We've noticed it several times, in fact. Since the main ingredient in the pizza crust mix is rice flour and the brand of plain rice flour I've been buying is Bob's Red Mill, I'm wondering ... does all rice flour have a "tinny" taste? Is it only Bob's Red Mill rice flour? Could it be something else altogether? Rhetorical question -- of course, it could be, but rice flour seems to be the common denominator.

Has anyone else noticed a taste like this? My family has individually commented on it so I know it's not just me. Thanks.

Need Short Tube Noodles For School Art Projects

29 August 2008 - 09:07 AM

My 3yo daughter's preschool teacher asked for noodles to be sent in for C to use for art projects (stringing necklaces and such). I sent in quinoa macaroni noodles, but they're too curved for little fingers to be able to thread a string through.

I need to find short little straight tube noodles -- or even a plastic replacement. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Looking For Choc Chip Cookie Recipe Similar To Cherrybrook Kitchen

10 August 2008 - 06:03 PM

My whole family loves the cookies from the Cherrybrook Kitchen chocolate chip cookie mix. However, I need to make LOTS of cookies for my daughter's back to school party, and at 5 bucks for a mix that makes 20, the cost would add up pretty quickly. Does anyone have a recipe that tastes similar to this mix and that makes several dozen cookies (or could easily be multiplied)? Thanks.
