In Topic: Stroganoff Help!

09 March 2015 - 07:31 AM

I make both beef and chicken stroganoff gluten free.  I use a little bit of corn starch or potato starch in mine to thicken (I have even used minute tapioca in a recipe for thickening)     I just tried a new recipe that called for cashewbutter and greek yogurt, as a thickener, I didn't feel like either did a good job adding thickness, but the dish was outstanding.   


As far as mushrooms if you can't get fresh ones can you find dried ones?     Worse case, canned ones? 

In Topic: Do You Micro Chip Your Pets?

04 March 2015 - 11:21 AM

I'm researching about it and am seriously leaning towards microchipping our kitty cat. He's an indoor/outdoor cat (he loves to hunt!) and that would hopefully increase his chances of making it home if he got lost. He wears a collar and engraved ID tag, but of course those can get pulled off or lost.

The Humane Society said that they routinely check every animal who comes in, for a microchip, so that they can determine if they are a lost pet. I adopted our kitty as a stray and before deciding to keep him, I took him into the vet to check for a microchip, because I wouldn't have kept him if he was someone else's lost pet.


If you got one for your pet, how much did it cost? Was the procedure fairly simply and well tolerated by your pet?


We microchipped a dog we had that we should have named Houdini!   That was 13 years ago, and we just got a new puppy and microchipped him.  We did both when we took them in to be neutered because we were told that the needle was big and although it could be done anytime it was just easier then.   I don't remember the exact cost, but it wasn't pricey and it did cost to "register" them in a database, I think $17.00.   Gives us peace of mind.  

In Topic: What Thyroid Meds Do You Take?

09 February 2015 - 12:45 PM

I also take Levothyroxine and mine is Mylan and have not had any trouble.  I called Mylan when I first went on it about 4 years ago and they told me it was Gluten Free, as my pharmacy couldn't tell me.    In the 4 years I have been on this medication I have had it filled at a mail out pharmacy as well as local and it has never come from another manufacturer, not sure if I have just been lucky or what.  


My son has to take the name brand Synthroid and he has had no trouble, he can not take the generic because it just doesn't work for him for some reason, so name brand it is.  

In Topic: Using Coconut Flour

My favorite cupcake and carrot cake recipe.   I got the recipe from a friend who follows a Paleo diet and they have been the best I have tried.    Now I might have to go home and make some... :D    

In Topic: Slicer At The Deli?

02 October 2014 - 04:20 PM

Deli's should be slicing cheese on one slicer and roast beef on it's own slicer (rare/blood can't touch other meat) then other meats on their own. If they do not have separate slicers they should be cleaning between the beef and other meats or cheeses. Also you can ask for it to be cleaned before you have yours sliced. Publix supermarkets by me have all separate slicers but I still ask to have it cleaned and have actually seen others request it as well. You can even asked for a new packaged to be opened, they are not always happy, but who cares, your health is more important!
