  1. You don't have to bake them long because they are not raw dough. Just heat them through, if they become too hard for your taste wrap or drape a wet paper towel over the food and microwave for 20 seconds. This will help soften the rice papers back to be edible.
  2. I've used it in lemon chiffon cakes several times and have never had a reaction. Kraft has wonderful labeling!
  3. First Sleepover

    I agree with pancakes or waffles for breakfast. You could do a vegan chili over French fries or a baked potato, throw the chili together in a Crockpot so you don't have to stand over a stove all day.Also any kind of pasta with a tomato sauce would be fun... Any time I had a friend over when I was little my mom would let us make a dessert. I never really cared what we were eating because I was so excited for the dessert my friend and I made.
  4. I love these! I have fried them and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar to make sopapillas, made individual spanakopita, and pretty much anything else that needs phylo dough including Bakalava!!!
  5. I use rice flour with seasonings mixed in... I think rice flour is crisper than other flours, but it won't turn golden brown.
  6. Make a roux to thicken any sauce melt 1/4c. butter or margarine and whisk in 1/4 c. Whatever flour you have on hand then cook for 5-8 min. Then whisk 2c. Of your sauce or stock and when it its blended pour it back into the original dish. You can always leave out the onions. Just increase your other seasonings to make up for leaving then out.
  7. There are many different levels of sensitivity so some people will have reactions to particles unseen with the naked eye and some won't. I use soap and water to clean my kitchen every time it is used, but my mother uses a mix of bleach water to sanatize her counters as she is much more sensitive than I am. I haven't thought of 409 but I'll be sure to tell mom about it!
  8. Add extra flour. I usually add at least half a cup. Also chilling your dough on your cookie sheet can help the cookies not spread.
  9. The quickest way around this issue is to train your family in the scoop then spread method. Use a spoon to scoop what you want out of the jar and drop it onto whatever you ate eating. Then use a separate utensil to spread on your food. If you want more use the spoon again. If you can trust the people sharing your jar you will never have this problem again. We use it at home, but I don't share with my coworkers... They just don't get it.
  10. http://www.glutenfreecookingschool.com/ I love this site... most of the recipes are very easy to follow and she has an on line course. All the recipes I have tried have been amazing.
  11. I MISS cookie dough ice cream!!! I can't stand not having it and TCBY mocks me when I drive past So I decided to make my own. I finally figured out how to make my own and decided I needed to share! Warning!! This recipe is not for those on diets. *I ate half of mine while I was making the dough. First clear out space in your freezer. You will need a level space to fit a cookie sheet. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper. You do not want to oil a pan so the dough won't stick... not a good idea. 1/2 c. butter, melted 1/2 c. brown sugar, packed 1/4 c. white sugar 1/2 tsp. vanilla 2 tbsp. milk 1 1/4 c. flour ( I used Pamela's baking and pancake mix) 1 c. mini chocolate chips Mix butter sugars vanilla and milk. Keep mixing until well combined. Stir in flour and chocolate chips. Form into 1/4 tsp. size balls. Or roll into log shape and slice thin. Place evenly on cookie sheet and freeze for 2 hours. Move dough into pint size zip top bag and store in the freezer for about a month. Mix into vanilla ice cream for the classic taste or a double chocolate ice-cream for a sugar rush. I haven't tried this recipe dairy free yet, but I think it will convert well. Hope you enjoy!
  12. I was 99% gluten free for 2 years and then did a six month gluten challenge eating 2 slices of bread a day. My results were negative, but my symptoms all went away with in a month after going back gluten free. Earning me a 'non celiac gluten intolerant' diagnosis. My doctor suggested I did not eat enough gluten, but I could not eat any more... I tried but I couldn't function eating more than 2 slices. I think it depends on your individual metabolism. What may not have been enough for me could be plenty for you. I hope you can get the diagnosis you want!
  13. Did you check your pork? I have bought roast before that had wheat flour on it to help with browning... It's annoying really
  14. I tested negative for wheat allergies and celiac... When my family asked why I don't eat it I explain what happens to me in graphic detail... Very graphic. They only ask once
  15. Here is my BBQ sauce recipe, it's easy and takes 10 min. BBQ sauce aka Sassy Sauce Yields 3 cups 2 cups ketchup 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup cider vinegar 1/2 teaspoon red pepper 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon celery salt 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons garlic powder 1/2 cup prepared yellow mustard 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 tablespoon ground black pepper 2 teaspoons dales or liquid smoke seasoning 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 2 tablespoons canola oil Combine everything except oil and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 min. Simmer for 8 min Remove from heat and whisk in oil. That's it!
