I enjoy food, especially when it tastes good. I also enjoy making it. Here are some yummy things I’ve made since February (now September). There is a transition from wheaty goodness to trying other goodnesses (rice flour, potato starch, teff flour, sorghum flour etc.) as I discover I cannot eat gluten anymore.
Butter buns for hot dogs and hamburgers
Chris’ nachos – first step
Chris’ nachos completed with cheese, taco sauce, sour cream and bacon
Homemade burger Yum!
Chris’ special cheesy noodle bake – so rich and delish!
First every roast chicken with thyme
Delicious Herb Garlic wedges (SO good!)
Yorkshire pudding (with gravy and roast beef – drooling delicious!)
Chris topping his pizza
Potato salad with lots of hard boiled egg chunks!
Oatmeal bread before baking
Oatmeal bread is very moist
Crunchy wheat crackers which I’m sad I can’t eat anymore
Raisin Tea Biscuits
Gluten free white bread from the bread machine – a bit too yeasty flavoured for me
Sunflower gluten free bread
Sunflower gluten free bread: I make my own flour mix and at this point, am experimenting with flour flavours.
Gluten free Lasagna using rice noodles
All baked. It tastes pretty much the same as using semolina noodles, perhaps a bit more bland.
Potato Lentil stew – nope, can’t use barley anymore. Bum! I like barley. Oh well, brown rice and wild rice are nice and crunchy too.
Banana blueberry muffins. I just love the colour!

Okay, it might look like something else, but this is a mix of teff flour (the brown colour) with white rice flr and potato starch
2 kinds of cracker: Teff and Teff – Sorghum mix. I discovered that teff is a bit too bland by itself in crackers, so am mixing with Sorghum flour (a bit nutty) and it seems to work! They don’t even need a topping. Yum Yum!
The poofyness is from the xantham gum which acts like a gluten membrane and traps bubbles. (I like pillow crackers)
More pillow fun
My oatmeal choc chip cookie recipe still rocks even with white rice flr and potato starch! (that’s ’cause most of it is oats 🙂
I was relieved that my favourite and very important banana walnut choc chip muffins tasted almost the same with gluten free flour. It is my staple 2nd breakfast at work. Very filling and tasty.
I finally found a tasty strawberry from the grocery store, so bought a bunch when they were discounted so much due to over ripening, and froze them on cookie sheets for future cereal yumminess.
