Oooh I like that one!  If you cook something that a lot of fat comes off of, like burgers, does it drain off the fat into something or a certain spot?

 

Yeah, it has a grease catcher. It isn't quite as awesome as it could be if something is SUPER greasy. But as long as things are only sort of greasy it works well. It's just a little black thing that slides in on the bottom. The trick is, and this is important, it only works if you remember to slide it in before you start cooking. Not that I have experience cooking greasy things without the grease tray or anything. :ph34r:

No prob! :) I had another lil recipe for bread. It had Almond Flour, egg and a sweetner or garlic, and water. You put it in a cup and microwave it. Reminded me of the 3-2-1 cake. Anyhow do you think I can find the recipe?? Nope! I loved that bread. 

I have this recipe for flax seed buns which I love love love :wub:  but flax does not love me :angry:

I wonder if I can covert this to say chick pea  flour instead of flax meal :mellow:

 

Gluten free flax seed buns

 

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon flax meal

1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder (opt)

1 tsp caraway seeds (opt)

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

drop or 2 of stevia

3 eggs

1 1/2 tablespoons water

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

 

 

               

   

Mix the dry ingredients; add eggs, water and oil. Pour the batter into 6 greased muffin top pans. Bake at 325º 15-20 minutes. To serve, split the buns horizontally to make two halves using a long, thin knife.

Makes 6 servings

Can be frozen

Number of Servings: 6

 

I leave out the stevia

Hahahaha, you sound like me!  I checked it out online and I think I am going to get it.  The Big A has it for $80, and bed bath and beyond has it for $99 and I can use my 20% off coupon to make it the same price, so I am going to try to make it out to a BB&B this week.  I like that it folds out to a griddle, I don't have a griddle and have always wanted one but didn't want to sacrifice space.  The george foreman ones keep crapping out on me and cuisinart has a good warranty so if I use it to death maybe I won't have to buy a brand new one in a year.

 

Today for dinner I am making crock pot red beans.  Gotta go help out a family member so will get home for a late dinner and won't have to mess with it, just eat!

I feel like I've had mine maybe a year or so, so I can't speak for how well it lasts. But I've always been happy with the brand which was why I was confident buying it. The George Foreman with the removable plates is so much more expensive and I refused to waste money on one without them because they're a pita to clean. Been there, done that, never again.

 

Tonight will be baked chicken of some kind and some sort of veggie something or other with it.

Bummer! The only thing I have had burn in the crockpot was some potatoes - but just a little on the bottom. The rest were fine.

Last night we had penne with Newmans Own Marinara. I baked it in the oven with moz, Asiago, parm and Romano on top until brown. Yum!

Last night we had pork tenderloin and onions, sauteed zucchini noodles, applesauce and these teeny tiny golden potatoes

(i have never seen them that small before--they were at the produce stand we have down here--really, they look like marbles  :D )

anyhoo... I just sauteed them in butter and some white truffle oil for a few minutes and they were very yummy .

 

Not sure what's happening tonight as we are going to the ball game and I may want to just have pizza when we get home.

I smell all that food at the games and sometimes, I get a little miffed that I can't have it,

but then I think, meh...it's all fried crap anyway

and my thighs do not need it. -_- he he he

Sounds like a splendid Friday. B)

 

Things are going well for business. So I went today and bought myself a sewing machine so I can stop using my MIL's. I don't like hers and I also hate being restricted on the time of day I can sew since I'm such a night owl. Now I can sew when it suits me, even if that means it's "the middle of the night" for other people. Also stopped by the mall today to see about a kiosk there. By next summer I should be ready to do a three month stint there as long as I'm healthy enough. ^_^ For now I'll settle for being ready for the local farmers markets.

 

Dinner will be chicken quesadillas and maybe some original Star Trek all cuddled up with my husband. :wub:

Chicken tacos, mexican brown rice, refried beans. Birthday dinner for my boyfriend. I also made a Blueberry "Pancake" cake with maple butter cream frosting. I used the yellow King Arthur mix and doctored it up with cinnamon, nutmeg and blueberries. Dusted it with cinnamon sugar.

Unfortunately they were frozen and thawed blueberries and not fresh. Blueberries are just so expensive!! These taste just as good! Thanks Lisa!! I had a lot of fun baking this. Baking was a passion before diagnosis and the gluten free baking intimidated me. But I think I am starting to get excited about it again!

Not to worry...took me a while....perhaps longer than you...but my gluten-free birthday cakes are just as tasty (many times even better) as the gluten-filled ones and the love of decorating to make a gift of those cakes...well...that is the same with or without gluten ;)

Looks great! And blueberries are one of the few fruits that thaw and taste like new!

OOH babycakes!! can't tell you how thrilled I am for your new venture. whoohoo!! You can be all "SHOW me the money!! " PS Did you get what I sent yet? (or do we have to hunt down the mailman?) ...chuckling...

Mmmmmmm cake....

 

"What she said!!" .......mmmmmm cake....

 

Going to be an interesting week here., Painter comes back Tuesday to fix the crappy paint jobs in the guest bathroom  and master bath, too.....just before our friends come in on Wednesday..How fast can it dry and how soon can I hang a few pictures and make it look pretty one wonders...the answer better be "24 hours" :lol: If not, so be it.

As it is, we're dining off cardboard boxes as my table and chairs have not come in. ah well. c'est la vie. Good thing I am a good cook and we're good friends and they don't give a crap about such things. 

 

Dinner tonight is looking like burgers and fries (I know, not exactly healthy, but it's quick....)

I've got a boatload of shopping to do...meat market, liquor store, produce stand, Italian specialty mart, the fish market and the crazy cool place with all the G F stuff on the shelves and in the freezer....oh boy. I LOVE to cook for my peeps!!

    • LOL, that might put it into perspective if I explain it that way. 
    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already.
