    What Are You Cooking For Thanksgiving?

    Samie- I use the Campbell's Green Bean Casserole recipe, but here's what I do so it's gluten-free: I use La Choy soy sauce or Tamari sauce, I either make my own condensed mushroom soup or I use the can of Progresso's mushroom soup and drain my green beans and nix any extra water. As far as the French's Fried Onions, I use (get ready for it....).....FUNIONS. They work perfect. My DH and my in-laws say they like it BETTER with the Funions and they're really the only ones I fix the GBC for; I just make it gluten-free b/c I don't make ANYTHING that's NOT. LOL. Hope this helps ya!

    Any Gluten-Free Bisquick Mix Sightings?

    Bought 3 boxes here in Warner Robins, GA at Kroger's. Bought a loaf of the new Nature's Own Gluten-Free White Bread as well.
  3. Hey, all. So, while I was in Kroger the other day, I saw this: http://www.naturesownbread.com/NAT_Varieties/variety.cfm?categoryid=160&productid=726 It was located in the organic section and was NOT frozen! They had white and whole grain. I bought the white loaf and OMG. It is AWESOME!!!! I made a sandwich with it that night and lemme tell you....it was just like pre-celiac. I cried. My husband tried it and like it, too! It runs about $5.59 a loaf and it's fairly good size. Not like a normal loaf, but hey! A bread company is now making gluten-free bread for us!!!! Go out and getcha a loaf. You won't be sorry!!! I called the customer service line and thanked them.

    Naan Bread!

    The naan recipe was WONDERFUL! Very tasty indeed. Thank you for posting!
  5. So, as I was browsing the gluten-free section of Betty Crocker's webpage, I came across a recipe for gluten-free pizza crust. It called for "Bisquick Gluten Free Mix." I scrolled further down the page and this is what I saw: "NEW Product - Coming Soon! Gluten-Free Bisquick
  6. I haven't tried the yeast breads...YET. EVERY recipe that I have tried in that book is AWESOME, except for one. The vanilla cake didn't turn out as good as my own recipe, but the others were FABULOUS. I've had to tweak a few things, though. For example, the Nilla Wafers: make them smaller than stated because they do indeed spread and cook just a tad longer. Other than that, I HIGHLY recommend the book.
  7. This tastes JUST LIKE RITZ. I let my "normal" husband and mom try them and they actually liked these better! Recipe is by Elizabeth Barbone. I highly recommend her cookbooks. "Ritz-y gluten-free Crackers" DRY STUFF: 1 1/4c white rice flour 1/2c cornstarch 1/4c sweet rice flour 1t salt 1t baking powder 1/2t xanthan gum 2 1/2T sugar WET STUFF: 1/2 stick COLD butter, cut into 1/4" pieces 1 lg. egg 6T heavy cream (I used evap. milk) 3T melted butter to brush tops of crackers Kosher salt, for sprinkling 1. Whisk dry ingredients together in lg. bowl 2. Using fingers or pastry cutter, cut in butter until mixture looks like a course meal. 3. In a separate bowl. mix together egg and cream until smooth. Pour egg mix over dry ingredients. Stir w/ a fork until dough forms a loose ball. 4. Using your hands, gather dough together and pat into a 1" thick disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for AT LEAST 1.5 hours. 5. Preheat oven to 425. Line 2 baking sheets w/ parchment. Dust a work surface lightly w/ rice flour. Roll dough out to 1/8" thick. Using a round cutter, cut out crackers. Place on baking sheets and prick all over with a fork. Press scraps together and repeat until all dough is used. 6. Bake first sheet for 6-7 min. Remove pan and carefully turn crackers over. Bake for an additional 4-6 min or until Ritz colored (golden brown). 7. Remove from oven and lightly brush w/ melted butter. Immediately sprinkle kosher salt over tops of crackers. Transfer to wire rack to cool. While first sheet cools, bake second sheet. I use a cutter that looks just like a Ritz cracker, about 1.5" across and this recipe makes about 7 dz. crackers. You can use whatever cutter you want. I warn you: these things are addictive!

    Great American Cookie Co. Has Done It!

    Here's the pic my sister sent: I thought about the cross-contamination issue, as well. Apparently they're training the employees to be very careful and that is one more reason the cookies are being kept in the back, as opposed to in the showcase in many locations.
  10. Hey, all. I just wanted to let everyone know that Great American Cookie Co. now makes and sells a "chewy chocolate supreme" gluten free cookie!!!!! Had my sister not sent me a pic of it today, I'd never believed her. She went and talked to the manager. He said that it is available at ALL Great American locations and that if you don't see it up front, ask for it. They are also developing their other flavors, but the chewy chocolate is all they have right now. Just wanted to pass this info. along. BTW, the location my sister found it was in Katy, TX. I'll have to make a trip to our mall (Macon, GA area) tomorrow and see if ours has it yet.

    Burritos Anyone?

    Here's the recipe I use for enchilada sauce: 1 c. water 1 beef bouillon cube 1 T cornstarch Put water, boullion cube and corn starch in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and cook about 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Then season to taste with chili powder, onion powder, pepper, etc. Should already be salty enough from the boillion cube
  13. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  14. To DigMom: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I have passed the word on to 4 others I know of with Celiac. Those mixes are awesome and I can't wait to get my coupon!!!

    Coconut Shrimp

    Hello, all. My mother and I made a recipe for coconut shrimp that tastes almost like Joe's Crab Shack. We even made the dipping sauce!

Place 1/3 c. cornstarch in bowl of shrimp to dredge. Shrimp will look "gluey." Mix remaining cornstarch, coconut, sugar, salt, and flours. Heat oil for deep frying Dip the shrimp in the egg wash, then roll in coconut mixture. Fry until shrimp float. Dipping Sauce 1 8oz can crushed pineapple (w/ juice) 1/2 c. sugar 1/4 c. red plum preserves 1/2 c. yellow sweet &sour sauce Mix all ingredients togethers and simmer over low heat for about 5 min.
