  1. Tonight I used Carol Fenster's Recipe for pizza crust and topped with Prego 3 Cheese, mozzerella, spinach, portabella mushrooms & tomatoes. It was amazing. Closest thing I have had to real pizza since going gluten-free. DS absolutely loved it and couldn't stop telling me so. It was fairly easy, definitely worth the small effort. I am sure that it will get easier every time I do it and I intend on making it often. I see a BLT pizza in my future. Here is the recipe: Pizza Crust **Courtesy of Cooking Free by Carol Fenster 1 TBSP active dry yeast 2/3 cup brown rice flour 1/2 cup tapioca flour 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin powder 1 tsp italian seasoning (I used 1/2 tsp basil & 1/2 tsp oregano) 1/2 tsp sugar or honey (I used sugar) 1/2 tsp salt 3/4 cup warm milk (110 degrees) 1 tsp olive oil 1 tsp cider vinegar 1. Preheat oven to 425. Grease 12-inch pizza pan or baking sheet. In medium mixer bowl using regular beaters (not dough hooks), blend yeast, flours, xanthan gum, gelatin powder, seasoning, sugar and salt on low. Add warm milk, oil & vinegar. 2. Beat on high for 2 min. Dough will resemble soft bread dough. If dough is too stiff, add water, 1 TBSP at a time. Put mixture on prepared pan. Liberally sprinkle rice flour on dough, then press dough into the pan, continuing to sprinkle flour to prevent sticking to you hands. Make edges thicker to hold toppings. 3. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Top with sauce and your preferred toppings. Bake for another 20 - 25 minutes (I only had to do about 16 minutes), or until top is nicely browned. Cut into 6 slices. 155 calories per slice (crust only).
  2. Here are my favorites from TJ: Chocolate Meringue Cookies gluten-free Gingersnaps Frozen Pancakes Frozen Waffles gluten-free French Rolls (in the bread area, not frozen) ~ I do freeze these after a day or so they last longer. gluten-free Granola Lara Bars, though they don't have a huge selection of flavors Brown Rice Pastas (not as good as Tinkyada, but cheaper and works well for spaghetti, mac & cheese) I wish they had the brown rice tortillas at my location, but they don't
  3. When I was trying to make bagels following the recipe on the side of Pamela's Wheat Free Bread Mix, I also made a couple topped with sea salt and they tasted just like hot soft pretzels! So GOOD!! You could probably shape them into the pretzel shape too!

  5. I made this tonight....a friend from another forum (not a gluten-free one) posted it. It was awesome! Kids loved it. Served it with Edy's Slow Churned Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
  6. Those look amazing!! I wish I had the patience! Maybe someday soon.
  7. Oh yum!! I love risotto! Too bad I would be the only one who would eat that in our house! The rest of my fam won't touch zucchini.
  8. That really stinks! I was looking forward to trying those! I love the Leapin Lemur cereal...it was on sale at Giant Eagle here last week. I was going to buy some at WF the other day b/c DS and I both eat it, but it was $4.99 (OUCH!). Stinks b/c all the other Envirokidz stuff was on sale but that one! Stinkers!
  9. Yes, happens to me when I eat apples. I can get away with eating a slice or 2, but if I eat the whole thing, I get very bloated & crampy. Happens with bananas too. I have recently been having trouble with other fruits (peaches, cantaloupe & pears), but it may just be that I was eating too many (can't help it in the summer time). I have cut back to 1 serving max. of fruit per day and make up for it with fresh veggies instead.
  10. Dried fruit also bothers me. I can eat it in very small amounts. Fresh fruit has been bothering me lately too. It could be the amount I was eating (like 5 servings/day), but I love this season of the year for fruit and eat it all day long! I had to stop. I was so bloated & gassy and in pain. Yesterday I had no fruit...huge improvement. Today, just a peach. I am bumming as there are strawberries, blueberries, pears, cantaloupe, apples, plums, peaches & bananas all waiting to be eaten! Fortunately the kids will eat some of that.
  11. Update....I made these today. I probably ended up making them more like dessert than anything else. They ended up tasting like a Kit Kat bar! OMG!!! They were TDF!!!! I used Rice Chex cereal (2 cups) and gluten-free Corn Chex (Health Valley brand 1 cup), 2 cups chocolate chips (probably should have used 1 cup gluten-free oats to make it a little healthier and it was very chocolatey. I followed the rest of the directions as posted. DS (gluten-free) and DD (not gluten-free) both loved them and begged for more!! Thanks for sharing! I am going to put pics of them on my blog!
  12. Oooh....I am going to make these this week!! We have been looking for a good cereal/granola type bar!
  13. I was going to suggest the crockpot for the pulled pork too. I put a pork tenderloin in with 1.5 cups of vinegar and cook on low all day. Then I toss with some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and freeze in small portions. Great for quick meals. I also make Little Smokies with BBQ sauce for DS..he loves to take those to school in his thermos.
