  1. I like the King Arthur all purpose gluten free flour. Very white and no garbanzo bean flour added.
  2. Registered Nurse and American College of Sports Medicine, Clinical Exercise Specialist. I do nuclear stress testing in a large cardiology practice.
  3. Are Oats Safe To Eat?

    Bob's Red Mill gluten Free steel cut oats.
  4. HA HA, I'm a nurse also and work in a large cardiology practice. I just started here in August and the first thing the staff said is you'll have to buy bigger scrubs because the drug reps are always bringing food. 8 months later of course I haven't gained a pound and am happy about it. I can't eat the crap they bring and don't care. I look at he staff, 90% are overweight and they sit stuffing their faces with their stomachs sitting on their thighs. 3 are already on HTN meds and they are under 50. I am certainly the lucky one here. :-)
  5. A can of compressed air or small brush will clean that.
  6. I just wash everything well or put it in the dishwasher and have never had a problem. Been doing this for 20 years. If you are concerned about baking sheets just use Reynolds Release. It is a non stick aluminum foil. I don't do 2 blenders, food processors or mixers. I just put everything in the dishwasher. You can drive yourself crazy over this or take a common sense practical approach.
  7. Here is an even fancier one Ive been making for passover every year. It is a huge hit and freezes well. Once chilled I place wax paper over the top. Place the cake on a cakeboard with doily, wrap in foil and place in a 2 gallon ziploc bag. I make it every year, freeze it and then cart it 200 miles to the inlaws in a cooler and it is always a hit. To dress it up even more, melt some white chocolate and drizzle over the top. The white against the very dark chocolate is a beautiful presentation. Flourless Chocolate Cake from the William Sonoma guide to Good cooking 10 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped 3/4 cup butter cut into pieces 2 tsp. vanilla extract 5 eggs, at room temperature 1 cup sugar Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 3500F. Butter a 9
  8. The bagels are nice and soft and work well. the Udi's bun I had in the restaurant was a good size. Not tiny. I think they are doing restaurants first then retail.
  9. There are several brands of gluten free pre made pizza crusts. Much better to just buy your own sauce, cheese, veggies, pepperoni etc and make your own. Best pasta in m opinion is Bionature. Even my husband eats it. Kettle Cuisine makes excellent frozen soups in single servings. http://www.kettlecuisine.com/Our-Soup.aspx Great for lunch. Udi's bread and bagels best ever.
  10. Had a great bison burger on a Udi's gluten free bun in a restaurant in Taos, New Mexico. Excellent!
  11. Any gluten free cereal works and crushes nicely in a food processor. I have also thrown in gluten free gingersnaps for a crust for a pumpkin cheesecake and the natures path gluten free honey cornflakes.
  12. Works for any recipe that requires a press in crust. ie:magic bars http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/magic-cookie-bars-from-eagle-brand/Detail.aspx
  13. I just crush chex cereal with pecans a a bit of butter in the food processor. Makes a great cheesecake crust.
  14. Bottled Water

    Water is water. No gluten in it. If you think so you are mistaken or don't understand what gluten is.
  15. Oats

    I've eaten the granola bars for years with no problem. I was diagnosed a long time ago when there was no special "gluten free" labels and there is nothing in them that contains gluten.
