Sending gluten-free Kid To Camp

28 May 2012 - 08:00 PM

Any tips on sending a week's worth of food to camp on a bus? My plan so far is to label everything by meal and day and pack it in dry ice. College kids will be running the kitchen and my son will not be allowed to prepare his food.
A lot of things on the camp menu he can eat, so I'm just subbing the things he can't, like parmesian chicken, burritos, roast, pizza, brownies.... lots of cooking to do!
But the camp is 6 hours away and I have to put him and his food on a bus.

Help With gluten-free Cupcake Recipe

24 April 2012 - 06:26 PM

My daughter turns 10 Friday, and she wants these gluten-free cupcakes in a recipe book for her class birthday party. That is no problem, but for a birthday cake later that night, she also asked if I could do the cherry recipe. I am not an improv baker, and as expensive as the flours are I don't want to mess up! So what do you think - would this cupcake recipe work for a cake too?

Flour Blend (and if you don't have this- it is SO good for any flour substitute):
1 C. white or brown rice flour
1 C. sorghum flour
1 C tapioca flour
1 C cornstarch
1 C almond or coconut flour

1 jar cherries
1 C sugar
2 eggs
1-1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 C vegtable oil
1/2 cup soymilk (or other milk)
1 tsp vanilla

mix bake 20 min at 350 degrees

What do you think? Would I use this for a cake recipe too? I wonder what temperature I'd cook it at for how long - 350 for 25 is what another cake recipe says - but that is for chocolate.

And this is from "Recipes for Gluten Free Kids" that a friend got us from Sams. I LOVE this cookbook.

Thank you!

I LOVE this site!

Want A gluten-free Thanksgiving? Hound Relatives To Get Tested!

03 November 2011 - 07:09 AM

Here is a really great reason to keep hounding your relatives to get tested: The more people who find out are gluten intolerant, the more safe food choices at holidays!

Last year, there were 4 of us on a gluten-free diet, and yes, I got contaminated. This year - more than half of the people at the event are on a gluten-free diet and we are planning on a mostly gluten-free Thanksgiving. And these are amazing cooks who have adapted their baking quickly to gluten-free goodness. Their pies are amazing!!!

I have to thank this Forum for guiding me the past year and a half as I navigated this new life. We need each other!!!!

What is your favorite gluten-free Thanksgiving food that is a big hit? I would love to hear!!! I'm going to start cooking and freezing this week.
