Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Hi Susan--Good to hear you feeling so chipper! My rec. on the ice cream machine--get the Cuisinart. Several of us have it--it's very easy to use!

Patti-

can you ahve dairy? I think you can't so what do you use to make ice cream?

miamia

This is what I did Susan,

I used a steamer basket and put it in to a big enough pan (that has a lid) so the tortillas would be flat, filled the pan with an inch or so of water and brought it to boiling (make sure you watch the water level because you don't want tit to evaporate out and burn the pan) then once I saw steam rising from the boiling water, I placed a couple of tortillas in the basket and put the lid on. I steamed them just for about a minute or so.

Steaming makes the corn tortillas really moist and pliable, it doesn't dry them out, and I think it brings out the sweetness of the corn.

Happy Friday to everyone :)

Andrea, I love the new picture of the kids!

Donna, so sorry you had an itchy leg reaction :(

Rachel, very exciting about the rock climbing :)

MiaMia, I think it was you that mentioned you eat spinach? It is one of the major "big ones" on all of the foods that have naturally occuring histamine. Maybe you could try to go without it for a week and see what happens? Just a thought.

The spinach thing is definitly something I should try but its hard I have not found many vegees that I can tolerate and I was always alright with it- or so I thought .

I feel like I keep finding all these things to cut out but nothing much to add.

Thanks julie for the advice

I'm envisioning Karen, on an Oscar Meyer float, big bun and all ;) , with a necklace made of mini-Altoid tins connected together . . . and some really ummmm evocative, maybe, costume. I agree with the Ice Cream Man theory, and she could do one of two things . . . wear one of those "Change-maker" things around her waist (too mechanical, maybe), OR, as part of a Rachelville is a Wonderville theme, she could simply toss Altoids out to the crowds (all except the Cinnamon . . . ouch) . . . . She could have a crown, and wear the long white gloves, and wave like parade princesses do . . . . And, should someone become harmed in the mad rush to see the Altoid Goddess on Parade, then I can patch 'em up, and send 'em back out!!! Yeah, THAT'S the ticket!!

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Hi Rachelville friends! I just had to stop by an internet cafe and visit Rachelville, because I'm hungry and I miss the place where all the food is safe and happy and gluten and auxigro and everything else free! Grow me some food and have the geese fly it over! LOL haha...but it's okay...I'll figure out how to eat here! I even found a place today that sells Bumble Bars!

I don't really know what's going on in Rachelville, but I saw a box of altoids showed up :o and the population grew! My internet time's up.. gotta go!

:):D:)

Hi Miamia

How are things today? I have not used dairy in over 2 years. I use Vance's Dari Free. It's a potato-based milk substitute--it contains no soy, grain, nuts or gluten. It makes pretty good "ice cream!"

Patti, you have to try the Vance's chocolate milk. It tastes just like regular chocolate milk. Even my gluten eating granddaughter thinks it tastes the same. So yummy.

Hi Celia! Good to see you :D So, today's moving day? Sounds hectic--moving and being in "transition" is not fun. Hope everything goes smoothly ;)

Yep--I have the same Cuisinart as Vincent. Actually he suggested it to me :)

Robbin, I'm so sorry to hear that you had such a rough day yesterday. I can't imagine having a problem with my eyes--I guess I take them for granted. I hope that you are better this morning :)

Karen--That trophy is perfect :D

How great was it to hear from Mango? :D

Can't wait to hear about Rachel's softball game.

Andrea--If you get a chance to check in today, just want to say hi!

Hi to everyone--hope you all have a great weekend! :)

Patti, you have to try the Vance's chocolate milk. It tastes just like regular chocolate milk. Even my gluten eating granddaughter thinks it tastes the same. So yummy.

Thanks, Armetta--I should try it. It would be easier to make chocolate "ice cream" with it! I bet it also makes good hot cocoa :P I'm happy to see you posting. Are you doing any better? I've been thinking about you :)

Patti, I am doing better, but the doctor said this past Monday that I have a ways to go in the recovery process. I don't post long answers, but have started to again get into the forum.

Can you give me a link for the ice cream that you make? I only ordered a qt. of the chocolate and wished I had ordered more this last time. I really had no idea how great it would be. You are going to love it. Hugs.

I had vances a while ago - I can't remember how it sat. I still have some in my fridge- does it have a shelf life? I want to try it again but it may not be good anymore.

Armetta--I emailed Vance's and they got back to me with several recipes for ice cream. I printed them off, and deleated the email. The thing I notice about the recipes is that they use things like gelatine and eggs--both of which I don't want to use. The ice cream also comes out of the machine nice and soft, like custard--but when you transfer it to a container and freeze it, it becomes rock-hard. We determined that it was because it has no fat. Anyway, I've experimented with it and found that adding a banana or two (blended in the blender) helps with the hardness. Here's the recipe I used the other day.

In blender combine 2 bananas, 2 cups of Vances (prepared thick), 1 cup sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 cup chocolate chips (ground to almost a powder in the blender). Blend until smooth. Pour into ice cream machine, process for 20-30 minutes. Done.

You can take the idea, and add or omit anything that you like. :)

I believe the shelf life dry is a year (unopened or in an airtight container), after mixing with water, it's a week.

Acorind to thier FAQ, Vances prepraied as milk lasts about a WEEK, Vances power if sealed in air tight container is good for a YEAR.
