gluten-free/cf/df "chicken" Nuggets

22 December 2009 - 02:16 PM

*oops, that should read gluten-free/eggfree/df*

Ok guys, I know a lot of you have multiple restrictions, so here goes... I made nuggets today with pork (YUM)...

I used about 1 tsp xantham gum in enough hot water to make an egg-like substance. I dipped it in that and then in Ener-G bread with garlic powder, salt, paprika, and pepper.

It was amazing! WAY better than chicken nuggets!!! I didn't feel like I needed any dipping sauce at all to enhance the flavor. I baked it in the oven at 350F until the nuggets were 185F in the center. I highly recommend to anyone with a dairy/egg allergy.

Omg... I Just Created Real French Bread Rolls!

18 February 2009 - 03:25 PM

Ok guys, bear with me because this is a recipe in progress... I just made the most delicious french bread mini-rolls. They actually taste and feel like REAL french bread!!! The outside is crispy, but not hard and the inside is soft but not too dense. They are amazing! I didn't measure the milk, but everything else is right...

1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 pkt active dry rapid rise yeast
1 or 2 tablespoons white sugar (depending on your tastes)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups white rice flour
1 cup potato starch
1 cup tapioca starch
4 tsp xantham gum
1 pkt Knox unflavored gelatin
milk (?) (or milk alternative)

1. Mix water, yeast, and sugar and let sit for approx 8 minutes
2. While waiting mix gelatin, flours, and xantham gum in stand mixer
3. Add oil and salt to yeast mixture
4. Combine all ingredients
5. Add milk until mixture gets sticky (maybe 1/4 cup-ish???) and let it sit for 10 mins.
6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
7. Scoop dough into a greased mini-muffin pan
8. optional: brush tops with egg for color
9. Cook until tops and bottoms are golden brown (approximately 10 minutes???)

The dough should be thicker than pancake batter, but thinner than traditional gluten french bread dough. I also added 2 Tbsp minced garlic, 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, and 1 Tbsp mined onion, but I tend to add garlic and onion to everything I make. I tried it without and it was still really, really, really good. This recipe would probably be good with less milk made like soft pretzels. Mmmmm....

For Those In The Reading, Pa Area Or Nearby

Has anyone else had the opportunity to try Good Eatz? My husband bought me 5 or 6 different baked goodies for Valentine's Day. We sampled all and all were amazing. They have sandwiches and breakfast and everything also.


Annika Update

30 January 2009 - 03:01 PM

For those who remember us... Annika is now almost 17 months. She just started gaining weight again and we managed to pack almost a full pound on her in 6 weeks. YAY! She's back on the growth charts. We just got a bunch of bloodwork back and it showed very VERY low IGF (insulin-like growth hormone) and acidosis (acidic blood pH). The doctor thinks this could be due to food intolerances and we're going in for an endoscopy Tuesday to rule out other things. Hopefully this will be the end of our journey. I feel like we've waited so long for answers. We're very slowly adding new foods back into her diet so we're hopeful the weight gains will continue. Thanks to all who have sent us well wishes and prayers over the past year or so. :)

Need Help Finding New Foods

23 January 2009 - 02:23 PM

Ok, so we're finally trying some new foods with the little one. I'm looking for some prepackaged things to buy that I can take along on trips and what not. She needs to be gluten/casein/egg/corn/apple free and I would prefer soy/nitrate/nitrite free as well, but that's personal preference and I can be flexible there. Any ideas? Ideally I'm looking for things that don't need to be refrigerated. We already do the fresh, dried, and canned fruit thing, but I'd like some new ideas. She's currently doing well with rice products, but doesn't like rice cakes or rice crackers. LOL I would really like to find a few things that are grab-n-go so packing a diaper bag isn't so difficult. She's almost 17 months, so nothing too difficult to chew.
