OK - all you dieters please cover your eyes, but I always wanted to try making a gluten-free French Silk Pie and I did it over the weekend. Turned out great (it's long gone by now) and was much easier than I thought!

Yay!!!!! Thank you so much for posting, my family will love it! I can't wait lol I just love this thread!

You're welcome, caselynn! I'll be looking forward to hearing how yours turns out. I love this thread, too...however, my hips do not!!! laugh.gif

Please note that I added an edit to the recipe I posted after contacting Annalise last evening about the sinking blueberries.

And if you make this, make sure you use the right size pan so you don't end up with a 1" high cake. I did use a Kugelhoph pan.

You KNOW Annalise Roberts? And you didn't tell me?? and you're on a first name basis? Cool!

hey, tell her my lemon bars were a hit--but that you have to dust them with confectionery sugar in the back seat of your car.

Gotta love a woman who even HAS a Kugelhoph pan!!!!!!!

I betcha LOVE2TRAVEL has one, too.

Nope, I don't know Annalise but most cookbook authors can be reached and she responded quickly to my question. Sorry to disappoint you. tongue.gif

I only have a Kugelhoph pan because I took a cake decorating class when I was pregnant with my daughter and made doll cakes for her when she was little. I bet L2T has far more fancy schmancy pans than I do!!!

Lucky!! My Mom never made doll cakes.... :( waaaa.

when I come to visit, will you make me one?

For dessert we are having:

fresh blueberries

and the new ice cream maker is still in the box (we wore the old one out years ago)

We are on diets. :)

Of course I'll make one for you...never mind that I haven't made one for 40 years! Hahaha

Oh wait...I can't do that as I threw out the doll years ago...it was getting kind of ratty.

Fresh fruit is still my favorite dessert...although I still have a couple of pieces of Lemon-Blueberry Pound Cake left that will be eaten until the last crumb is gone. biggrin.gif

P.S. What kind of a diet are you on? The seafood diet...you see food and you eat it? laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

(groan) Oh NO, you didn't say that....arrgh!! that's my Mom's joke. And it's not funny when she says it either. :huh::P

She also used to tease us with this nugget when we were kids:

We'd ask "what's for dessert?" and she'd say "DESERT the table!".

(groan) Geesh, my Mom was kinda mean, now that I think about it.

I'm gonna call her right now and tell her!

(ahem, obviously, I got my sense of humor from my Dad.)

I melted about 3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips with a Tbsp of heavy cream (milk works just as well). Meanwhile I crunched up some gluten-free pretzels.

Two scoops of vanilla ice cream placed in the bowl of melted chocolate + gluten-free pretzels + a scant handful of cashew pieces = YUM.

My desserts have been somewhat curtailed, since I'm on Weight Watchers. However I have found that Jello brand sugar free/fat free puddings made with skim milk are great with fresh fruit. Stir some blueberries into the vanilla, peaches with butterscotch and strawberries with chocolate. So far I've lost 16 pounda and have 20 more to go!

GREAT IDEA AND CONGRATS!! :D

I was terribly bad last night. We had pumpkin pie shakes. With the evenings cooling off we were just starting to feel fall in the air and couldn't help ourselves. Not to fear though, we totally put flax in them so they were practically healthy! I'll tell my hips that too. :ph34r:

I would like to perk up this thread. Since the holidays are here why don't we post our holiday desserts that we might only make at this time of year.

This is one of my favorites that I make and give as a gift and keep one for myself.

Pumpkin Bread

9x5 in loaf pan

350 oven

Sift together

1 3/4 C AP flour (add xanthan gum if your mix doesn't have it)

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (I grind my own and make sure to leave some chunky bits)

Beat until light and fluffy

1 1/3 cup sugar (I use Demerara)

1/3 cup soft shortening or butter

2 eggs

beat in

1 cup cooked or canned pumpkin

Add dry to wet in 3 additions alternating with

1/3 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Do not over beat.

Fold in

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup chopped dates

Bake in greased pan about one hour.

This bread freezes really well and is delicious cut in thick slices and warmed with ice cream or whipped cream on top.

Sora, thanks for thinking of this thread - I had forgotten! Not having dessert tonight but I am making the best chocolate chunk cookies on the planet tomorrow for my massage therapist. She practically begged me for them last week.

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
