Thank you. Just looked it up. I doubt if I'll ever get much use out of that cookbook b/c I don't use yeast.

Do you think you could sub baking powder/baking soda to get the rise from it instead of yeast? I have no clue how it would work but Roben Ryberg uses it instead of yeast in her You Won't Believe It's Gluten-Free cookbook. And in her other cookbook The Gluten-Free Kitchen, she uses yeast for flavor but says it can be left out. Just a thought.

No, hadn't thought about that. It wouldn't be the same texture, though, but might be worth a shot sometime :)

I don't know how it would translate with the recipes from Annalise Roberts' book either...wonder if some other adjustments would have to be made. If you try it, I think I'd cut the recipe in half so as to not waste ingredients in case you bake a brick.

Pumpkin Crunch cake sounds goooooood!

You can search on myblessedlife and pumpkin to find the recipe I use. It was posted on Sept 20, 2010. I use a Betty Crocker's Yellow cake mix and only 1/2 cup better. It's good with pecan or with sliced almonds. This recipe is not a diet recipe. lol

______

for not using yeast in baking-

Re: baking soda and pure apple cider vinegar, or even lemon juice, can be easily used to leaven gluten free breads instead of yeast. You just don't have to let the loaves or breads "rise," with the fermenting yeast working with sugars, but bake them right away as it's the fizz from the soda and acid that does the trick. The texture is always going to be a bit of a challenge, anyway, as to finding and blending gluten free proteins that bake up with the similar sort of slight rubberyness- but not too bouncy.

Tonight is British pub-like fare:

Bangers and Mash with Caramelized Onion Red Wine Sauce (plump Cumberland sausage from a guy who grew up in Cumberland, England and mashed roasted garlic potatoes with crispy shallots)

Shaved Raw Asparagus Salad with Pear Balsamic Vinaigrette, Shaved Parmesan and Toasted Pecans (OK, that's not British...)

More Coconut Cream Cake but this time with Orange Buttercream

Posted this in my mayo thread but I think it belongs here too:

I tried a new recipe tongight that was a hit. I took inspiration from this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Amazing-Chicken/Detail.aspx

But instead of Italian bread crumbs I used crushed gluten-free corn flakes (Nature's Path) and cajun seasoning. It was wonderful! I couldn't even taste the Mayo.

Tommorow I am going to try to convert this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Scalloped-Potatoes-and-Onions/Detail.aspx

to gluten and dairy free.

Be glad to. I often make up my own recipes so they are more or less in my head but will try to remember to add them next time. ;) Thanks for the compliment - I really appreciate it!

Leftover Bangers and Mash with Red Wine Caramelized Onion Sauce from last night but this time accompanied by Spinach Salad with Chevre, Blood Oranges, Peppergrass and a Honey Blood Orange Vinaigrette, with Toasted Pistachios.

And to be completely piggish we are polishing off the rest of the delectable Coconut Cake with Orange Buttercream. :P

We are having a yummy meal planned for tomorrow, that is for sure.

Tonight I made Jessica Seinfeld's recipe for her DH, Jerry's favorite sandwich: Balsamic Chicken Sandwich. I just used Pamela's flour and Against the Grain Baguettes. Was to die for. Found the recipe in March 20, 2011 Parade Magazine in the newspaper. You can search on "Balsamic Chicken Sandwich" and "Seinfeld" to find the recipe.

I did two things different. (ok 3) I pounded the chicken breast thin. I figured a whole piece of chicken would be easier in a sandwich. And I did not use any broth. This made the sauce very syrupy so it did not drip off the chicken. I decreased the cooking time since the chicken was thin and did not have the broth. Will make this again and again.

Bunless turkey burgers with lettuce wedges in place of the buns to hold all the toppings, homemade baked steak fries and fruit salad (cherries, pineapple, pears, mandarin orange and banana slices) for dessert.

I feel like it's summer already! :)
