While I miss being able to stop in ANY bakery and grab something that looks yummy, I am having a lot of fun lately coming up with some of my own stuff. I have this long list of different flavor combinations to try that I am so excited about. Squeeeee! (Do people do that anymore or is it sooooooooooo 2013? I’m behind.)
But the issue I was having with my long list of flavor combos is that every recipe ended with…wait for it…
That is all I know how to make as far as baked gluten free stuff. Seriously!? Muffins!
Now, muffins are all tasty and stuff. And I will not stop making them any time soon. It would just be nice to have a larger repertoire of gluten free baked good options.
Have you heard of Jules Shepard? If you haven’t, well, now you have.
Jules makes amazing gluten free flour blends and mixes that she sells at GF Jules. You should check them out. (Not “Jules Gluten-Free.” That is her old company that she is no longer with.)
Every year, Jules makes her Thanksgiving eBook, Gluten-Free Thanksgiving with Jules available for free for a few days. She is doing it again this year. She has given me and my readers a special code to get her (normally $12.95) Gluten-Free Thanksgiving with Jules eBook for free. [click to continue…]
So, a few weeks ago, some friends of ours had twins. The most beautiful children you will ever see, except for mine, of course. Now, they already had two kids, so it is a super lot for them to deal with. Awesome-ness! But a lot.
Being the amazing friends that we are, a group of us started a meal train for them and supplied them with dinners a few nights a week when they didn’t have family in for help. The first meal that was taken by amazing friend number one was a potato soup. I stopped by the next day to help out and took one look at that potato soup and said, “I have got to make that!”
Since I can’t eat gluten, and I am allergic to eggs and yeast, I am pretty much screwed when it comes to anything bread-y at all. Bread, biscuits and things such as that are pretty much all gluten, eggs and yeast.
I mean, think about it. Really.
Having to replace one or two ingredients, you can sometimes come up with a “reasonable” substitute. Some of them are downright good. But having to replace ALL of them, not so much.
I have really been jonesin’ for some kind of bread-ish something or other. Just something! [click to continue…]
