Lasted A Week

Recommended Posts

Grocery list.....something I started a long time ago (because I blamed the brain fog on just being too busy and couldn't remember anything for more than 2 minutes) .....is a perpetual list that stays on the counter by the fridge. Anytime I am any where near the end of anything it goes on the list. If I'm looking at recipes, what I need goes on the list. If I shop and don't pick up something on the list, it gets written on the new list.

I keep all of my gluten-free baking supplies in clear plastic tubs, and put the label on the edge where I can see what it is without taking everything out of the cupboard. Any "mixes" that I make before hand have their own tub marked with marker. Organization helps me out a lot. I started a recipe box for gluten-free stuff that I try (seperate from the "real food recipe box". I don't add any recipes to the box until I have made it and dubbed it worthy of a place there. That way the box doesn't get filled with recipes that I'll never use again.

Hope some of this helps. I'm too scatter brained without these helpful tools. Hoping the fog will lift sometime soon. I USED to be a genius! :lol:

I do the list too. It's really helpful. The only problem is that I need to make a list to remind me to take my list when I go to the store. :huh: If I go without a list and only need one thing, I come out with every thing but what I went in for. It's like AADD. Once I walk through those doors, there is so much to look at and see that I can't focus on the reason that I'm there. I usually remember what I originally wanted two blocks from home. :(

Interesting. I thought the gluten-free stuff was real food! Everything else is poison, no matter how tasty it might be.

And yes, gluten-free bread is better homemade. I'm still experimenting, but since my fav was always biscuits, not sandwiches (except for the PB&J), it seems a bit easier.

For those interested in the site about marshmallow peeps, here it is: Peep Research. Just make sure you're not eating when you go there. I don't relish the idea of making someone choke from laughter.

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Thanks for posting the link

If you are interested and want to p.m. me, I would be happy to get the recipe to you.

Not MNBeth but I'd love the recipe.

I'm sorry Wonka, I'm not sure who your question was intended for. I offered to provide a recipe for someone earlier in this thread but I'm not sure if someone else made the same offer??? If I am the person you were requesting the recipe from, I would be happy to help you. If not, I'm not sure that it's clear who you are talking to. :) Also, if it is me, I have talked about recipes for a Farmhouse White Loaf bread and a recipe for homemade ravioli. Which were you interested in?

Hey all,

So the bread drama. I am also a bread adict and this diet is killing me. I can't find one I like either. The closest I have come is Pamela's Bread mix. I tried Kinnkinnick and HATE it. I feel like a freek saying taht because everyone else loves it. The texture, fact that it doesn't turn color when you toast it, ahh just everythign was all wrong for me. The other thing I am struggling with is pizza dough. I have tried gluten free pantry and Pamela's. I hated both. Both have either no texture or are a pain to make. Grr the frustration, I dont think I will ever feel happy again, like I did when I ate regular bread!

Have you tried the Chebe pizza crust mix?? That's my favorite so far, although I haven't tried a ton of different kinds.

It was your recipe for Farmhouse White Loaf Bread that I was interested in but I'd happily accept a ravioli recipe as well. I love to cook and love to receive already tried and loved recipes. I do find this forum a bit harder to follow regarding who posts are directed at than the food forum I also hand out in (fine cooking). Each post is numbered and the responses tell you which post # the response is for. Very user friendly.

I agree with you Wonka. Because people use 'interesting' names for their posts, I usually have to check the spelling at least once before I reply.

I will be happy to send you the recipes. As I explained to someone else, the bread recipe is from a cookbook that I had checked out from the library and I had to return it. And because I have ordered it for myself, did not think to make a photo-copy of the recipe. The book should be here by Monday so I will be happy to send both recipes to you then.

Thankyou very much. I hope you enjoy your new purchase (I love new cookbooks).
