  1. I have never eaten at Outback, but I do have a flourless cake recipe that uses pecans. It reminds me more of a brownie than a cake. Don't know if this is similar, but here goes. Flourless Chocolate Cake 2 C pecans 1 C brown sugar 1 C eggs (4-5) 1/2 C olive oil 5 T cocoa 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/8 tsp salt Heat oven to 350. Grease spring form pan (I used a glass square baking dish). Grind nuts in food processor until very fine. Add remaining ingredients and process 30-40 seconds. Scrape sides, process 30 sec more. Pour into pan, Bake 30-45 min.
  2. I do not know of a gluten-free, already made, mainstream tartar sauce, but I make my own. Don't have exact amounts depends on how much I need and everyone's taste, just a couple spoonfuls of miracle whip, a squirt or two of mustard, small spoon full of sweet pickle relish, mix it all up, very simple. Hope this can help you out. Cheryl
  3. gapspan, I just use Pam no stick cooking spray, found in the baking ailse at the grocery store with the other oils and what not. There is one made with flour in it so be sure to read the label. I just use saran wrap to cover the dough while it rises. Remove the plastic wrap before you bake! Didn't notice that part wasn't in the instructions, sorry for the confusion.
  4. My sister in law passed this recipe to me, I don't know the orginal source. I think it is the best and the closest to "real" bread I have found. I have posted the recipe as it was given to me, but I have made substitutions when baking. I do not put in the egg substitute and I use 5 whole eggs. For me it seems a bit more moist with the extra egg, my personal preference. I had read somewhere that if your end product is dry to add an extra egg. I do not use a bread machine. Just a note for those who keep your flour in the freezer like I do, make sure you let your flours come to room temp before making your bread, it will alter the way the bread rises. I have also substituted buckwheat for the rice flour and it turned out nicely. I use this recipe for my hamburger buns also. If you have them, use muffin rings for your forms or I have used foil that I have folded into strips, formed rings and used paper clips to hold them. Gluten and Lactose Free Bread Dry Ingredients: 2 cups rice flour 1/2 cup potato starch 1/2 cup tapioca flour 1/3 cup cornstarch 1 T xanthan gum 1 1/2 tsp salt 3 T granulated sugar 1 T egg substitute 1 T Red Star active dry yeast or other active dry yeast Liquids: 4 egg whites 4 T canola oil 1 tsp cider vinegar 1 1/4 cups warm water In med bowl, measure all dry ingredients. Stir or whisk well. Combine liquids and mix well. Lrg bread machine method: Transfer wet and dry ingredients and yeast to baking pan of bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Press start. Help mix dough during kneading cycle; mixture will be very thick. Use 1 rise and 1 knead cycle if machine is programmable. Remove upon completion of baking cycle. Oven Method: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil 9x5 inch loaf pan. Add yeast to mix and beat in liquids. Beat 2-3 minutes. Scrape into loaf pan, cover with plastic wrap sprayed with Pam, and let rise to the top of the pan. Bake 40-45 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack before slicing.
  5. Don't know how many of you can get Williams seasonig products locally (I can't), they are based in Missouri. I called the company and this is the response I was sent via email. Their web address is williamsfoods.com and their phone is 800-255-6736. Cheryl WILLIAMS FOODS GLUTEN FREE PRODUCTS UPDATED 04-30-2004 Country Store Tortilla Soup Grandma
  6. Taco Bell? Are The Corn Tortillas Safe?

    At Taco John's I always get a bean hard shell taco. The meat seasoning has gluten, the potato ole's are fried in the same oil as the breaded chicken therefore contaminating them. The stores where I live also fry their corn chips in that same oil.
  7. Open Pit is not gluten free. I called them the day after I was dx, it was my favorite bbq sauce!
  8. Taco Bell? Are The Corn Tortillas Safe?

    I called Taco Bell and also emailed. I have not heard back on the email, but the woman I talked to said the corn hard shell tacos have oat flour in them. She did say the pintos and cheese, the bean tostadas, the nacho cheese sauce, the fresh ingredients like the lettuce, tomato etc are gluten-free. I can't remember the other items she named. She said the chips used for nachos are sometimes deep fried so you have to check with each individual store to see if they fry their chips. You can call taco bell at 1-800-TacoBell.
  9. Eating Out

    Don't know if you have Taco John's where you are, but I get bean hard shell (corn) tacos there. Their meat has wheat in the seasoning, their chips and potato ole's are fried in the same fryer as coated chicken strips, so I avoid everything else.
  10. I use Pace enchalada sauce. My kids will eat it because it's not as spicy as some others.
  11. A celiac friend gave me this recipe. I saw some posts that some of you are very fond of Chebe bread. I haven't bought the packaged mix since I got this recipe. Hope you like it too. CHER Chebe Bread Preheat oven to 375 Bring to boil until white foam appears: 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1/3 cup water 1/3 cup milk 1 tsp salt (optional) Remove from heat and add to hot mixture: 2 cups tapioca flour with wooden spoon. Let set 15 min. Mix in: 2 eggs 6 oz grated cheddar cheese Form balls (1 1/2 inches round) with greased hands. Bake on lightly greased sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes.
  12. Remember the no bake cookies with quick oats? I was having a craving for chocolate and peanut butter. I replaced the oats with gluten-free krispy rice cereal. Really hit the spot! No Bake Cookies 2 c sugar 2 T cocoa 1 stick butter or margarine 1/2 c milk combine above in a large pot, bring to boil. Remove from heat. add 1/2 c peanut butter and 1 tsp vanilla, mix until peanut butter melts. Add 3-4 cups gluten-free krispy rice cereal, mix until cereal is coated. Drop by the spoonful on waxed paper or press into a pan and cut into bars when set.
  13. Thanks for mentioning a list from stores, I hadn't thought of them having a gluten free list of products. I emailed Safeway last week and got a reply today. I printed out 5 pages of items that are gluten free. They are for Select, Safeway, Enlighten, Healthy Advantage, Manor House, and Lucerne brands. There are so many mainstream options I hadn't considered before.
  14. I recently discovered my local Safeway store has a Natural Market and does carry gluten free food. Mine had pasta, cereal, frozen waffles, mixes and several other items. I was thrilled when I got my weekly grocery ads and Gorilla Munch and Panda Puff cereal by Envirokids was in it. Not every Safeway has a Natural Market so call your store and check. My local Smith's store which is affiliated with Kroger and King Supers, also carries gluten free foods, they even have already made rice bread in their freezer section of health foods along with gluten-free waffles. It might sound silly, but I was so excited to find out I don't have to go to the health food store for everything! I live in Wyoming and my shopping is limited for specialty items. I have to go to Colorado to stock up on flour and what not as it's cheaper. Being new to celiac disease (diagnosed march 04), I'm so excited to have shopping options. Those of you that have had this a while probably already knew this, but I couldn't contain my excitement and just had to share!!
  15. Hi I was diagnosed two weeks ago and I had the same question. My sister-in-laws mom is celiac and has had it for many years. She told me to be sure and bleach my bread pan for my bread machine and any other pans I have used to cook or bake gluten containing foods. She recommended that I have separate pans for gluten-free baking and cooking. She also recommended using glass baking dishes. Cast iron must be replaced. She said as the food cooks it gets cooked into the pans and can cause contamination. Hope this helps.
