Yeah, GF Girl's 1st book is her story with some rudimentary recipes that she'll tell you aren't very good. Her 2nd book/cookbook is a mix of more of her story and w/the Chef and recipes that just happen to be GF. Not sure the subject of the 3rd, I think it's more quick cooking since now she understands why people with kids said they were too busy to cook now that her daughter is 3. She's working on it since has a deadline coming up really quick.

How cool! I didn't even know she had more than the one cookbook. I'll have to look for the second and see what I think. I've got a collection of GF books now LOL.

Hi and welcome to the team

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I love GF Girl! I'm impatiently waiting for her 3rd book to come out. I even bought a scale for her recipes and now I use it for tons of things.

I didn't know they had cake and cupcakes! That's cool!

But can I let you in on a secret? I've discovered that with a decent blend of GF flours, I can make my old cake recipes and they turn out just fine. You might give it a try sometime. This is the blend I use:

(Scroll down to where it says "Our All-Purpose Flour Mix", I've found it's a great substitute in most things for wheat flour.)

there bread can be dense but the cupcakes are divine. Someday I'll be able to afford a cake, in the meantime cupcakes are enough, plus I don't need all the calories or the cake. The decorations for the holidays are wonderful.

Yes, I was thrilled that they won cupcake wars! Go Kyra! :)

I've had the New Cascadia bread before and it is tasty. A bit dense, but that makes it great for toast. :) Aha, it sounds like you've got your routine down, smart thinking to get it all in at the same time!

Cool, we're so close. I haven't made it to Crave yet, I dislike LO police so try not to go there unless I have to. Did you see they won Cupcake wars?

I really like New Cascadia Traditional Bakery in close in SE, not the easiest to get to but it's sold at New Seasons too. I tend to go if I see my ND, he's in Milwaukie, so I'll see him, go to BRM and stock up on flours then swing by the bakery on the way home. emoticon

Thanks for the welcome! I'm still learning too, especially when it comes to baking. That's tricky. Especially yeasted breads. I love me some good yeasted bread but my GF bread attempts so far have been.... um.... not so great. :)

Jen, for me it's also the smell but the pain sometimes is awful too. Plus the feeling of being sick all the time, the diarrhea, the pain of the diarrhea moving around as it works its way through... Sorry if this is TMI.

It's a small world! I live in Tigard, but I'm super close to the border with Beaverton. :)

Have you been to the Crave Bake Shop? OMG they are so good! It's a totally gluten free gourmet bakery and her treats are awesome. Look them up if you haven't already, they're in Lake Oswego. :)

Hi Valerie,

emoticon to the group. Gas can definitely be a problem, for me it's more the smell then the pain but thats there too, along with a bunch of other symptoms if I get glutened.

Where in Oregon are you? I'm in Beaverton.

Hello, my name is Valerie and I've been gluten free since November 2010. I have not been tested for celiac disease, though I know I'm at least gluten intolerant.

It all began a couple years earlier, in 2008 or so, when I noticed certain foods made me very gassy... lots of very smelly gas. It got worse over time, with daily diarrhea, gas all the time, bloating, headaches, and just a general feeling of being sick all the time. The final straw was the day I was left curled up on the floor for two hours with the worst gas pains I've ever had in my life.

I have friends who are celiac and this sounded like their symptoms. Out of desperation, I went GF for a week... and my issues magically started to disappear. Now, I feel perfectly fine as long as I stay away from gluten. I can tell when I've eaten it by accident... all those nasty symptoms come back and I feel terrible for 48 hours.

I look forward to seeing what this group has to offer, and what I can offer in return. :)

-Valerie
