26th-Jan-2013 09:05 am - Baking question!
Librarian - pensive

I've just joined this community. While I do not have a gluten-intolerance or celiac diseases, recently, I've been experimenting with baking gluten-free as an alternative to always cooking with white flours. My question is...

I've recently been experimenting with changing-over a brownie recipe to gluten-free. I've tried adding a little less flour. I've tried adding an extra egg to the batter, even a little bit of almond or coconut milk, but the brownies are still more cake-like. Any tricks to getting a fudgier consistency?

Thank you!

I am a gluten intolerant twenty one year old female college student living in Tucson, AZ. For my cultural anthropology class I have chosen to do my semester research project on those who are gluten intolerant and how they create identity for themselves. I would be so grateful if you (or anybody you know that you could forward this to) found the time to fill out this questionnaire and consent form for me. I would need it back by May first, and if it's easier you can email it to dally@chef.net. Thank you so much and I look forward to your replies!

I've been reading Gluten Free Girl for a year or two now and really enjoy reading this site. She writes well, has a nice variety of recipes and great photography. She has a book out that I haven't purchased yet, but it's on my wish list.

This is one of my favorite new food websites that has a gluten free section. I actually like to call it food porn because, well it is. If you like to cook, click the link and you'll understand what I mean.

Stand on Head
I saw these on Joyful Abode yesterday and they looked like a perfect recipe to try this weekend. When I went to get the recipe this morning, the website was down. I consulted google and came up with this recipe instead. Here is my adaption:

Edit 4/20/09: These are even better if you make them a day ahead of time and let the oats soak up the moisture from the batter in the refrigerator.

I know that some days you just get tired of cooking and may want to go out to eat. Last night we went to Margaritas and I was impressed, I told them I couldn't have gluten or dairy and the manager came out to talk to me, and made sure the meal was gluten and dairy free offering substituions and cooking the veggies in oil rather than butter. Apparently this is standard procedure and they know what they are doing.


Just in case anyone else is looking for a safe place to eat away form home.
21st-Jan-2009 09:11 am - Looking for a good bread recipe...
I have been eating Food of Life Brown Rice bread which is good but a bit expensive.   I was curious if anyone has a good gluten and dairy free bread recipe they wouldn't mind sharing.

京楽 春水 (きょらく しゅんすい)
Does anyone have any sandwich alternative ideas for peanut butter or jam (jelly)? I'm still quite new to gluten free bread (it's just not the same! I miss my Freya's Soy and Linseed!), and I'd like to take a break from bread completely for a few months. The trouble is, I love peanut butter and jam at breakfast, and I need an alternative way to eat them.

Any creative ideas out there? All I can think of is maybe onigiri?

I was hoping to make some pre-made meals and keep them in the freezer, I have made a bunch of soups, now I would like to try some savory pies and maybe some ravaoli.     I am gluten free and dairy free  so it is a bit tricky.   Anyone have any experience of making such things and baking them?

So I'm doing a full system detox/cleanse right now which means no gluten, meat, dairy, soy, corn, or sugars. I have a beautiful eggplant in the fridge, and am looking for suggestions on what to do with it.

What are your favorite gluten-free eggplant recipes?
