Posted by on Oct 6, 2012 in Blog Fun, Cooking, Gluten Free |

If you’ve had to stop eating gluten, the first thing you noticed was how much more expensive grocery shopping is. While it may bring a little relief on your taxes (  and  and  and  but you might also want to check if it’s  worth the hassle in your tax bracket)  Better Batter...

A New Winnah

Posted by on Jan 7, 2012 in Blog Fun, Gluten Free |

Knitter? Annoyed by the GF posts? Skip down to the *** for a message. Working off of last week’s recap of my fave GF recipes… Once again, I found myself going to a Friday dinner where my son and I wouldn’t be able to eat the challah. Once again, I went to the Interwebs. I love the growth of this blob monster, I really do. Two years ago I found a challah recipe or two: results=eh. A year ago I found more. Results=better....

A Non-Glutenous Look Back

Posted by on Jan 1, 2012 in Blog Fun, Cooking, Gluten Free |

I thought it might be a good idea to create a clearing-house of useful gluten free information and recipes. Obviously, this all comes under the category of “stuff I liked,” but I’m kinda picky. And I cook a lot so I’ve tested many recipes. Some failures, many successes, but a few stand out–and those are what I’ll put here. French bread: Hands down, Fire and Salt’s is the best. So good in fact, that my...

Posted by on Dec 16, 2011 in General Ranting, Gluten Free, Writing |

A frightening number of friends of mine have gotten ill lately. We’re all generally of a certain age (post 35, shall we say…) and all getting oddly ill. Kind of out of the blue. To refresh–I had hand tremors for 2-1/2 years, the need for Prevacid for 1-1/2 years, then suddenly 9 weeks of migraine (not migraineS–one loooong migraine. No joke). My MOTHER (not a doctor) diagnosed the gluten problem. I’ve been gluten...

Cinnamon Sticky Rolls Oven or Crock Pot Method. If you’ve seen my gluten free posts before then you know I love (a) Jules Flour and (b) finding a good cinnamon roll recipe. Now I’ve got both. AND a really great blog-hop to boot! Remember last year when I participated in the Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop? Well, this is similar, but with nifty prizes and great recipes. At the bottom of the intro text to the Sticky Roll recipe...

Now That I’ve got the Scones Down…

Posted by on Nov 2, 2011 in Blog Fun, Gluten Free |

The husband always liked Starbucks Cinnamon Chip Scones (I know. Evil Empire. Yada yada yada… they still were the only ones willing to make me a decaf soy latte when I was nursing–the locally owned shops in Brooklyn told me back then that “soy won’t foam right” and REFUSED to make me a drink! So. Starbucks won my vote back then.) Anyway. I digress. I started my hunt for homemade cinnamon chips. And the hunt ended...
