I'm sure that it all depends on the tastes of the person....but I made a bunch of gluten free baked doughnuts and took them to a fall festival last fall. They also had regular gluten fried doughnuts. My gluten free doughnuts were eaten much more quickly than the gluten doughnuts. 

 

Of course, the gluten doughnuts were plain ones and my gluten free ones were blueberry orange with glaze. I wouldn't know whether the other ones were gross or not since I didn't eat them.  :P

 

 

They sound delicious to me, Ruth. . I don't believe I have ever had a baked donut, but I try anything once! ("the things I like, I try em twice" )

 

<<quick Ski, what song is that from??? tick tock

 

I don't need to have fried things, so if there's a way to eat something tasty without deep frying it, I'm all for it!

Here's my recipe: http://preventionrd.com/2011/07/orange-glazed-blueberry-doughnuts/

 

I just sub gluten free flour for the gluten flour and do any dairy modifications needed. IIRC, you do milk, so all you would need is to swap the flour out.

 

 

Those look nice.  I might try them.  I just don't really need to eat them....

I'm going to go get myself some vegan "seafood" from the health food store and have it for supper.

 

So thrilled to find a company that makes vegan fish analogs that are all gluten free! They even have vegan, gluten free, soy free canned "tuna." I could totally see where they would up the convenience factor if I threw that with some packets of mayo into my kitchen box. (I'm not vegan, just ovo veg. so I'd go with regular mayo)

 

One really hard thing about being gluten free and vegetarian is that most of the vegetarian analog products are loaded with gluten. It's exciting to have some companies come out with some acceptable options. My other favorite is Beyond Meat products. Their products are certified gluten free!

I don't have anything against baked donuts, I think that since they're available in stores for us though that some of us just really miss what we think of as donuts. And I try not to lie to myself about baked goods, there's nothing healthy about them anyway so I just do whatever makes me happy and try to eat in moderation. My exception to that rule is donuts. :ph34r: My husband would probably like those donuts. Blueberries and oranges are two of his favorite things.

I never really ate many doughnuts pre-gluten-free anyway nor did I miss them 99.9% of the time after going gluten-free. So probably my perspective is different due to that.

I never ate doughnuts much either. In fact, the first doughnut I had that I can recall was a G F one at my friend's G F bakery. It was pretty amazing to eat one warm and still dripping with glaze 

 

I think your doughnut recipe looks amazing. I think the pics even made me drool a bit. ^_^

I don't think any of us were interested in a baked donut. I know some people look for a healthy version of every treat, and that's great for people who are into that. But when I want a donut, I want a donut and I know that from the start there is nothing healthy about it so I want what I remember a donut being so I want to go all the way with it. The good ones are fried. I think a lot of us just plain old aren't fans of cake donuts. I like the Dunkin Donuts glazed style donuts. OMG now my mouth is watering from talking about it. I think it may be time to order another bag. :ph34r:

 

I'm making a couple chuck tender steaks for dinner tonight. I think I have beans ready in the garden again and I may check to see if any corn is ready. Some sort of veggie type object will sort itself out by supper. I need to run some errands, pick up prescriptions and go get a haircut today. I'm still debating how much I'll get cut off. I might go crazy and go all the way up to my shoulders, I'm feeling adventurous. :blink:

 

I generally don't eat donuts for the health aspect either :D.  Our Sunday tradition since I was a little kid was to get donuts for Sunday morning...they were the fluffy, fried, glazed donuts usually with chocolate frosting :D.  I like cake donuts too but not as much as I like the chocolate glazed donuts :D.  The frozen gluten-free ones I have are baked....but they are not good!

It is very good! When I took them to the fall fest last year, one of the little kids who did the doughnut eating contest with the regular doughnuts said to his Grandma, "Grammy, the blueberry ones were way better than the ones that we ate for the contest!"

 

The kid who said that, did not know that they were baked or that they were gluten free!

The donuts were made using the recipe from this website: http://freeeatsfood.com/2012/02/06/chocolate-doughnuts-with-butterscotch-glaze-and-salted-almonds/

The glaze was a honey/powdered sugar glaze and then I added a tbsp of cocoa powder to get the chocolate glaze. The flour I used in the recipe was a new flour I have never used before.. it was given to me by my best friend after she went to Bend, OR. Apparently her friend's roommate started a gluten-free flour company called AKulinary Innovations. It worked really well. It had xanthan gum already in it so I was kinda worried. But it worked out!

Bumping Jamie's post because these baked donuts are awesome...all this donut talk made me search for this recipe...time for some sinful chocolate glazed donuts again around here.

Dinner is something in KFG....not feeling great so dumping some meat in there seems like an excellent plan to me ;)

Edited...lol...Here you go Irish! You type faster than I'm thinking today :)

LOL!

 

I've been having a heartfelt desire to have a real celiac cook for me. I miss eating other people's cooking.
 

This weekend, a lady who claimed to be sensitive to gluten wanted to cook for me. I asked her a few questions about her kitchen and then graciously turned down her offer and told her that it was really no trouble to bring my own food. Later in the weekend, I saw her eating pasta salad, dessert, etc. at a party. Yikes! Beware the fad dieters!

I would just Irish's soup & Ruth's donuts.

 

Ruth's fake seafood..... sorry... I can't get into that.   :D But I am happy you found something you enjoy!

 

Irish - what recipe are you using for that soup?

 

Last night we just had some cheese and crackers and fruit and wine.  Hub went to the garden store.  A cute little 10 year old girl had set up a table selling honey.  She explained the whole procedure to my hub.  Her honey was only $5 a bottle.  Its sooooo yummy.  We put it on some goat cheese (OK... we also just put it on spoons, too).

 

Neighbors picked apples and made apple pies.  They brought hub one.  They don't know about my Celiac.  That's OK.  He got a nice piece of pie and put the rest in the freezer for next weekend.  It will just be awkward if they see me before they see him and ask how the pie was.....  

 

Ruth - what flour did you use for the donuts?  I have tried a few but some seem better for some foods than others.

I don't remember. I think that maybe BRM flour mix?

 

I don't know how the fish sticks compare to regular since I've never had regular fish sticks. But they are tasty and safe! :D

I adapted it from Stephanie O'Dea's--changed a few of the amounts to make more.. 

 

4 cups of beef broth ( I use the 32 oz. carton of Kitchen  Basics)

4 tablespoons butter
3 large yellow onions, peeled and sliced in rings
1/2 tablespoon white granulated sugar
1/4 cup sherry
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

 

 

 

--heat your crockpot to high and plop your butter in to start melting
--slice the yellow onions into rings & break up the onion slices with your fingers, and rub them around in the melted butter
--add the beef broth, sugar, salt, and sherry
--cook on high for 6-8 hours or low for 10-12. It takes a while for the onions to get translucent and pliable
 

I make a baguette, then melt cheese on it for dunking, instead of messing with crocks under the broiler. I'm lazy.

I have no desire to cook anything tonight.  I wish I had some frozen pizza or something in the freezer!!!  I might have some gluten-free noodles--I can make spaghetti or something easy.

It doesn't matter how awesome dinner is, I've never gotten my husband to clean up for me. I've gotten help, but he's never straight up done it for me. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. <_<

    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
    • My 7-year-old has been complaining of constant itchiness and a skin crawling sensation for the past five months, but has no external rash or symptoms.   It seems to get worse at night, although that may be because it's more difficult to distract herself at bedtime.   We've tried switching shampoos and detergents, tepid baking soda baths followed by gluten-free lotion, re-reading the labels on anything that comes in contact with her skin, having her re-tested for more food sensitivities, and even checking the house for mold and cleaning all the air ducts.   Nothing has helped. Her pediatrician referred us to an allergist who had us try several different histamine blockers, but not even Benadryl brings relief, so it doesn't appear to be a histamine issue.  Blood tests show that her kidneys, liver and thyroid are all functioning normally.   Right now I'm trying having her go nitrate-free since that isn't included in food sensitivity tests, but so far no improvement.   Now they want to refer her to a dermatologist, but the appointment is a month away and she is MISERABLE.  I have no idea how to help her.  
    • Wow! It sounds like you are going through a lot right now.  Most of our dinners at home are gluten free and my kids eat the food just fine. It does take a bit more planning and you have to make more things from scratch.  Our favorite dinners are tacos (serve on corn tortillas), red beans and rice, fajitas, grilled meat (BBQ chicken, fish, steaks, shrimp).  My crock pot is a life saver because I can leave it cooking al day and come home to a hot meal. Also, check out an instapot. I might make cooking a lot easier.
