Here are my favorites:

*Best Bread = Microwave bread that was posted on here. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=56641&st=0&p=521029&fromsearch=1&#entry521029 I also buy Pamela's bread mix to make bread crumbs.

*Best Bagels = None. I have not tried any.

*Best Pasta = Bionature is my first choice and Tinkyinada second.

*Best Pizza = Homemade with a coconut flour crust. Here is the link to the recipe: http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com/recipe_Gluten-Free_Pizza_Crust.htm

*Best Rolls = Pao De Queijo made from this recipe: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Cookbook%3a%50%C3%A3o_de_queijo

I like to use 1/2 parm and 1/2 extra sharp white cheddar cheese.

*Best Crackers = Nut Thins (Almond) cheddar cheese and ranch flavors and Mary's Gone Crackers

*Best Cereal = I don't eat alot of cereal any more, but I like Arrowhead Mills maple buckwheat flakes, cocoa pebbles, Perky's nutty flax and all chex.

*Best Waffles = Homemade. I used a flour mix of 1 1/2 cups sorghum flour, 1 1/2 cups cornstarch, and 1 cup tapioca flour for the flour, added 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp. xanthan gum. You could probably use less xanthan gum.


*Best Donuts = None. I have not eaten any.

*Best Muffins = I use many different recipes depending on my mood but make them from scratch.

*Best Cupcakes = I have used several mixes. Namaste, Better Crocker, and Bob's Red Mill.

*Best Cake = Black bean cake. I have modified the recipe since this topic started. I increased the baking cocoa to 1/4 cup and used the full 2 oz of baking chocolate. I also have been using cream cheese. Here is the link: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=62563&st=0&p=566283&fromsearch=1&#entry566283

*Best Cookies = Sugar cookie: I use the sorghum mix that is listed under the best waffles now and follow the recipe otherwise to the tee. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=39686&st=30

*Best Chocolate = I'm not too fussy.

*Best Candy = If it is gluten free then orange slices.

*Best Gum = I'll chew about any gum but try to stick with sugar free.

*Best Ice Cream = Breyers

*Best Sprinkles = ?

*Best Sorbet = ?

*Best Chips = I like South of the border tortillia chips or make my own with corn tortillias (I've deep fried and baked them)

*Best Pretzels = Glutino

*Best Drink = Water and unsweetened ice tea. I like the cranberry splash sierra mist when it is available.

*Best Soup = I make my own but use Health Valley cream of chicken, celery and mushroom for cooking.

*Best Frozen Meals = None. I don't buy them.
