  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. A lot of people in my family can't drink cows milk. I remember using goats milk a lot. I could never get my girls to drink soy. Amy
  3. Hi, I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to store muffins. I usually put them in a Rubbermaid container or a ziplock bag. The next time we go to eat them the tops of them stick to your fingers. My mother once told me muffins and quick breads should not be stored airtight. Could this be the problem? Thanks to anyone with any advice. Amy E Topolski
  4. Hi, I just ran across this thread and would LOVE to do this for my daughters. I have absolutely no idea where to start! Is sweet rice ok to use? I think we have almost 15 lbs of that. How do you cook the rice? I have only used it for flour. I tried it today with 1 cup rice 2 cups water and it fell apart. Also, how do you get filling in it? Any help would be much appreciated. Step by step instructions would be awesome. Thanks in advance! Amy E Topolski
  5. Lunch Ideas For 2 Toddlers

    Thanks for the ideas. Unfortunately they won't eat hotdogs or lunch meat any more. They don't like soup, tacos, quesadillas, or gluten free noodles. We also are on a tight budget so we don't buy anything that is prepackaged gluten free. Only naturally gluten free products. I will definately be tring the peanut butter and apples, but we won't be able to try the peanut butter dip. I can't use the pudding because of food color or the sour cream due to the lactose. But it sound wonderful! They might just go for that and it will give them that more full feeling. Thanks for all the help! Amy
  6. Hi, my daughter'a are 2 & 3 and have recently been giving me some trouble about food. I am at my wits ends. My 2 year old is only 23 lbs and I would hate to see her loose any weight. They can't have any lactose, eggs or food coloring which makes things harder. They use to eat lunch meat with fresh fruits and veggies and lactose free cheese. They still will eat the cheese but no longer want lunch meat. One will eat hotdogs, but to eat them all the time is not healthy. We tried ricecakes and peanut butter but only the peanut butter gets eaten. Any help would be a blessing! Thank you in advance! Amy E Topolski
  7. Hi, This is the recipe I know of. Hope it helps. For 1 teaspoon of baking powder, mix
  8. Making Yogurt

    Hi, As I mentioned in my last post, my girls can not tolerate any amount of lactose. They also don't like soy yogurt and can not handle any artificial color. This made buying yogurt very hard. I found a website GIProheath.com, they make a dairy, soy, corn, gluten and wheat free yogurt starter called ProGurt. So I decided to give it a try. They say it is excellent for people with Celiac. I also ordered a Yogourmet yogurt maker. Both got here on Wednesday. I was so excited! I also found out about the SCD diet. (Breaking through the vicious cylce) They said that if you use cows milk and let it ferment 24 hours it would be lactose free. So I tried. Both my girls were sick. So I made it with Lactaid. It worked! They love it. You can also make it with soy or nut milks. Just had to tell everyone! Amy
  9. Non Stick Pans

    Another thing to concider is the person. My Kitchenaid pan were in very good condition and I had to replace them with sainless steel. My daughter is very sensitive and is easly gluten by the smallest amount of cross contamination. Everytime I cooked in those pans after she felt better she was sick again. In that case, it's going to be trial and error. Hope I've help! AMy
  10. Making Yogurt

    Thanks. We already use the milk but my girls are too young for the pill and we couldn't afford it even if they could take it. Also, I forgot to mention that they can't have any artificail colors. This makes it very difficult. Amy
  11. Hi, My daughter now 3 1/2 and her 2 year old sister are lactose intolerant. They also have never been very fond of soy yogurt and I feel they don't need all that soy if they don't have to have it. So, I was thinking about making my own. I was looking at yogurt makers but could use some more info. Has anyone ever tried this? I read that the longer it sits the more lactose is gone. Can you use lactaid? What do you need to do this? Any help would be a blessing! Amy
  12. Try this recipe for sauce. http://www.emerils.com/recipes/by_id/4911.html Amy
  13. This is a dairy, gluten and egg free cake recipe I just made last week. Everyone likes it! It's very moist and did not dry out the next day. If you don't want to use the coffee water will work as well. I did this as cup cakes and not in the bundt pan. I think cup cakes cook better. Amy Eggless Chocolate Cake 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup baking cocoa, divided 3 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups sugar 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 cups cold brewed coffee 1/3 cup canola oil 2 tablespoons white vinegar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1/2 teaspoon shortening 1. Coat a 10-inch fluted tube pan with nonstick cooking spray and dust with 1 tablespoon cocoa; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and remaining cocoa. 2. In another bowl, combine the coffee, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Pour into prepared pan. 3. Bake at 350
  14. How Sensistive...

    Hi, My daughter is exrtemely reactive. I think it could be possible seeing that my daughter is that sensitive. Hope your feeling well soon! Amy
  15. I think ice cream is a great idea! I would be very happy to see a diary free ice cream recipe. Say some with coconut cream or another dairy free cream alternative. Amy
