Guess, is this sandwich gluten free? November 30, 2010Posted by @Melonie in : Dishing It , add a comment
Is it or isn’t it gluten free? What about lactose free? I’ll give you a hint with a pic of the condiments I used. Leave your answer in a comment. I’ll post the answer tomorrow morning.
How to save your salty gravy and make a gluten free modification November 25, 2010Posted by @Melonie in : Dishing It , add a comment
Happy Thanksgiving gluten free friends. It’s a dangerous holiday for eating on our diet especially if you are also lactose intolerant. Ugh! I am making an alternate version of our family turkey gravy recipe with my Oma today and I added salt without tasting. Hello chef 101! She uses bacon on the turkey to keep it moist, then we use the turkey drippings to make gravy. That’s all I’ll share about our secret family recipe but I will tell you the gluten free substitute to flour: corn starch. It comes out beautiful and shiny. My other secret, when you over salt a sauce or soup add raw, peeled potato chunks to it. It completely saves the day by absorbing much of the salt flavor. Control it to taste by adding more potatoes. Remember to take them out well before they cook of mashing.
Remember to taste before you salt friends and do not get yourself sick over dinner. There are subs don’t be shy with the family present
How Cherry Ice Cream Saved My life November 22, 2010Posted by @Melonie in : Dishing It , add a comment
I walked in the door to the smell of cupcakes cooking in the oven. The regular kind. My daughter, an aspiring pastry chef, is trying a new recipe from the Food Network for yellow cake and home made chocolate cream cheese frosting. Nothing will create a glorious glutenous break down faster than cupcakes. I grab an avacado and it was perfect, not over or under ripe and creamy. But it wasn’t cake. Quick! She hands me a pint of TJ’s soy cherry ice cream and it’s heaven. I ate it right out the box. The best way to eat ice cream!
Trader Joe’s cherry ice cream is gluten and lactose free for under 5 bucks.
