Thanks guys (well, you know what I mean). I am not too sad about soy. I will try the coconut aminos. I hope I can do soy lecithins, I have found a chocolate which is gluten, dairy, nut and egg free but has soy lecithins. The odd square of chocolate would be nice.

Easter George sounds good :)

Dinner is roast chicken, jacket potatoes, carrots and broccoli.

I'm thinking of picking up a small ham for myself for easter. Any suggestions on the brand? I can always make my own glaze, so thats no big deal. :)

 

It sounds soooo good, but hopefully my stomach will let me have it (the grease gets to it).

Crazy (and totally wrong) Irish toast I saw recently. Given the proclivity for the Irish to have celiac (so much so that they dub it "celtic disease") I find it bizarrely ironic. (but I have a twisted sense of humor as you know)

 

Knew you guys would find it funny.Cheers!

Barley bread will do you no harm,

er, nope.  :blink: 

 

LMAO  :lol:

 

Thanks for the giggle...perhaps I'll add this at the end of the Irish Blessing I was planning on  :P

 

First Corned Beef that I prepared all the way from scratch...when he popped out of the brine crock he looked and smelled just right -- now --- hmmm, let's call him "Pat" is bathing in beer and seasonings in the crockpot -- smelling great here.  Hubby will take care of the potatoes and cabbage -- and I made a sinful triple chocolate cake that I will frost with minty icing -- one son challenged me to make a cake in the shape of a shamrock earlier in the week...so the base layer will be large circle with the second layer carved into a shamrock...going to play with the decorating === fun!

 

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Everyone :)

Lisa, that looks yummy!!!!  And so spring-y with the yellow daffodils. 

 

To go with encore roast beef from last night I made poutine with delicious lactose-free mozzarella that actually is cheese - not soy or any other product masquerading as cheese.

 

Honey roasted carrots and more Eton Mess from last night.

SKI!!

Holy mackeral!! that cake is awesome. We can add cake decorator to your many mad skills. Cool beans, little sister! I cracked up yesterday when my friend's 96 year old mom licked the spoon, her fingers and the plate !! after she finished her piece of flourless chocolate cake. Talk about enjoying the crap out of every single moment. I hope to be her when I grow up. We had a great day with our friends.

I buy Boar's Head ham. They make smaller cuts, too--boneless, spiral, etc.--so you do not have to eat it for the rest of your life. :lol:

Even the glaze is gluten-free, and it is pretty good,  but I prefer my own. 

 

LOVE2

I have never had Eton mess, but I am sure I would love it. Hope your Bday was super-perfect. You deserve all the happiness in the world.

 

Tonight, we're having roasted chicken with this on it:

I'll have to look into it :)

 

I am a sucker for the bone in ones though... its bad i know but i enjoy the skin and fat.... Bad bad bad for my GERD friendly diet.

 

What i like to do is take a little honey and use it either as a glaze or dipping sauce. You can also add cinnamon to it if ya want.

Errand day, so lazy day. Leftovers for me. Apparently my husband doesn't like corned beef. Who ever heard of such a thing? Oh well, he picked up a frozen pizza while we ran errands and that is his dinner. Now tomorrow I can sleep until I wake up. No alarms.

 

That mango sauce looks SO GOOD!

Jose, just for the record, when you put pictures of cake like that, you are

required by board rules to describe it's deliciousness in detail, and also

provide a recipe. Ok, that's not a board rule, but it should be!

 

 

So Addy's cheese bread turned into crepes? Makes great burrito wrapper!

That cake looks amazing!

 

Also, burrito wraps is a brilliant idea. I should try that.

So i put out a roast to thaw. I'm thinking of doing something different other than my soups, so planning on cutting it up and cooking up the pieces with a side of veggie. Now what to season it with. I may just do some salt and Pepper.

 

Good idea?

 

Any ideas on how to keep it tender? I know cooking it when its room temp and at a lower temp, but thats about it.

What type of roast?  How much does it weigh? 

 

I would roast the roast -- then cut it into little pieces to use in a variety of ways.

 

Salt and pepper is all we use regularly on my meat -- I do use dried herbs and garlic as well if you have them lying around.

haha no problem

 

Ingredients

 

1 can of Libby’s pumpkin

2 cup sugar

1/2 cup canola oil

1 1/2 cup apple sauce

5 eggs

3 cups flour mix

2 tsp xanthan gum if flour mix does not contain xanthan gum

3 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger for a spiced cake

1/2 cup cocoa powder

3/4 tsp kosher salt

 

Preheat oven to 350*

 

  • You will need 2 large mixing bowls one for wet ingredients and for dry.

     

  • To make your flour mix I used 4 cups white rice flour, 1 1/2 cup potato starch, 2/3 cup tapioca starch mixed up into a large canister mix well and measure out your 3 cups. You can use premixes as well.

     

  • Dry: SIFT (very important to sift it gives the cake air) flour into your dry mixing bowl with xanthan gum, cocoa powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add salt and now whisk all dry ingredients to combine.

     

  • Wet: in your 2nd bowl combine pumpkin, sugar, apple sauce and oil into your stand mixer or mixing bowl and beat to combine. Add eggs one at a time until mixture is runny and all ingredients are combined.

     

  • Add the dry mix into your wet ingredients. This mixture will be very thick almost so the spoon can stand up in the bowl.

     

  • In 2 greased cake pans split batter into 2 and spread. Place pans into a 350* oven and bake for about half an hour. Check cakes with a toothpick, toothpick will come out clean when cakes are done.

Allow to cool before frosting.

 

 

Frosting is made by whipping together

 

2 8oz packages of cream cheese (I used pumpkin pie spiced cream cheese)

1/4 cup confectioners sugar

Spread in the middle and top of the cake

1 also used 8oz dark chocolate Philadelphia’s indulgence cream cheese spread for the top and sides.

Allow cake to chill for half an hour to one hour so cream cheese can set up.

 

 

I got this recipe from here http://clippingoutgluten.com/recipe/chocolate-layer-cake-with-cream-cheese-frosting/

That's the basic idea of this thread...we all talk food and general conversation -- much like we would if we were dining in each other's homes -- my husband likes to lurk in this thread because we both cook -- he just doesn't post -- that's a good point -- if there is anyone else reading along...

 

What are you having for dinner tonight?
