On A Lighter Note!

1) Yesterday I made some energy bars with peanut butter, coconut, honey, oats, flax seed and chocolate chips. I didn't have any oats, so I actually cooked quinoa and added it. Did not have honey, so added maple syrup. They were really tasty. I gave 3 to my husband, he ate one and said "you POOR thing! Is THIS what celiac has reduced you to??? Thinking this tastes good?" and he gave two of them back!

2) Someone gave me a cookbook with Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Sugar Free recipes. One of the recipes, I kid you not, was for STRING BEANS and the ingredients are STRING BEANS and WATER. Needless to say, I am not inspired..

Wow! Those are great ingredients! Very healthful and good choices for a snack that will give you energy. I'll bet your husband couldn't cook his way out of a paper bag (am I right??). Maybe he just doesn't like food that is healthful and prefers the processed type....oh, well. Enjoy your delicious snack!

As for gluten-free cooking, I simply use regular recipes and adapt them.

No, he likes healthy food, just tok great offense at this particular one :)

And I don't even use gluten modified recipies any more, I typically just use naturally gluten-free foods.. I just thought that I could write this cookbook! (Recipe: Apple. Wash and Eat)

I have a great recipe to share! As I have mentioned before, I'm not a very good cook, but THIS one works so well I have had lots of complements on it, especially on a hot day. Here it is:

Water - place glass under tap. Turn right hand knob until glass is full. Drink. Repeat if necessary.

LOL. When you think about it, there is a lot of stuff in recipes that is taken for granted. Heat oil in pan, for example. It generally assumes that you will place oil in the pan, put the pan on a burner, turn on the electricity or gas and not let it catch fire :rolleyes: Or cream butter and sugar. Summons up all kinds of possibilities :blink: There definitely is a place out there for a basic cooking definitions dictionary for the uninitiated.

So I made the energy bars again but put them in a pan and baked for 15 minutes to try to make them firmer...Cut them into bars (instead of rolls) gave to my husband and he says "You THINK that by changing the shape I won't realize these are the same balls of raccoon poo you tried to feed me before. And quinoa is for DINNER not DESSERT"

Good thing he is cute.

Funny! I have one of those books where you hide purees in food for kids...had a similar reaction with a few recipes. My son started asking "what's in it" every time I made something. He was 5.

I don't do that anymore.
