Topics I've Started

Pizza

24 February 2012 - 07:31 PM

I was at Whole Foods yesterday and in the fridge/deli area I saw an uncooked/fresh gluten free cheese pizza and decided to try it. It was THE BEST!!! I added some jalapenos and baked it for 10 minutes. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The ingredients listed potato flakes. Does anyone have a pizza dough recipe with potato flakes? I really want to make this dough.

Thanks!

Baking Fail

11 December 2011 - 09:33 PM

I have been majorly craving stuffed Chicago style pizza and I finally attempted it. It did not turn out as planned. The bottom layer of dough was more like a hard baked pasta and the top layer was at least edible, but not great. It was only okay because the cheese under and the sauce above it made it softer.

Does anyone have a good dough recipe that would work for a stuffed pizza?

BTW...the sauce was great! I used Trader Joe's stewed plum tomatoes and basil, tomato puree, red wine, garlic, oregano, crushed red pepper and black pepper. Really good. Too bad it and tons of cheese just went to waste. :(

Which Is Best For Baking Bread?

04 December 2011 - 07:16 PM

Hey everyone,

I made some banana bread today and I started thinking about my friend and how her bird died from her non-stick cookware. She had her bird autopsied and the vet said it died from the gas produced by cooking with teflon. I already use cuisinart's green gourmet frying pans and stainless steel cookware, but all my bakeware is non-stick. I don't have a bird, but I find it hard to believe that the gas isn't harmful to us, too.

So, what would you recommend? I saw a Lodge cast iron loaf pan that looked good, but would ceramic be better for baking? Or, should I just go with stainless steel?

Thanks!

Curly Hair Styler

13 November 2011 - 08:51 AM

Good morning everyone!

I was very hesitant to get rid of all my gluten containing hair products (which took me years to find the right mix). I gave most of my products to my friend and I tried ShiKai Curl defining spray and bumble and bumble curl defining cream (which are both great), but the best/cheapest styler so far has been flax seed hair gel mixed with shea butter and olive oil. My hair is soft, conditioned and without frizz! No crunchies!

I combined a few recipes I saw on naturallycurly.com to make it work for my curls (more shea=heavier cream).

I boiled 2 cups of water with 1/4 cup of flax seeds to make the gel. After straining the seeds, I added about a TBSP of olive oil and 2 tsp to a TBSP shea butter (gel is still hot so it will melt the shea) and whisked the mixture until combined. Then I put it in a container and that's it!

SUPER CHEAP and the best part...no alcohol or other ingredients that may damage my hair.

I'm also going to start making lotion at home. I'm just waiting for the ingredients to arrive :) FUN!

Sharing An Experience...

02 November 2011 - 02:38 PM

I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business and I hear the guys across the room start talking. I usually try to ignore them, because their conversations usually include stuff about how their girlfriends are mad at them or how they plan on working out...blah, blah. But, I hear one of them say that there are all these people in the world with autoimmune diseases and that science is the only thing keeping these people alive because they would have just died out a long time ago and that it's all about Darwin.

When I heard this, I wanted to get up and start yelling at him. I can't believe that a person would say such a horrible thing and honestly, I think he's wrong. Almost everyone in my family has an autoimmune disease, but they've all lived long lives so far (except for my mother who died in her 30's of CNS type lupus). I mean, us celiacs (without science to diagnosis us), it would be a sucky, painful life, but we'd still live and be able to procreate, right? Am I wrong?

I mean, who knows...I just can't believe he'd say that, and I want him to be wrong. I want to say something, but I won't. I haven't even told all my co-workers about my celiac disease and I don't want to for sure now that I know how some people view this sort of thing. I can't help but think about this. He's wrong, right? I mean, heart disease is the number 1 killer I thought. I guess I'm just trying to find a good argument for myself to feel better. I almost feel like I shouldn't exist, but I know I shouldn't let someone else's words affect me.
