Lactose and Gluten-free Banana Bread

Sunday, October 16th, 2005

Making gluten-free bread can be a real challenge. With baking powder based breads, though, it is possible and pretty darn easy.

I took this recipe from Betty Crocker and tweaked it so it won’t make me sick.
Preheat oven to 350.
1 cup sugar (for less sweet bread, reduce to 3/4 cup)
2 tablespoons shortening
2 eggs
3/4 […]

Gluten and Lactose Free Mediterranean Pizza

Saturday, October 8th, 2005

I just tossed this together tonight and was stunned by how incredible it tasted! It’s been a very long time since I’ve had a good pizza. I’ve created lots of very unsatisfying substitutes for pizza and it’s been depressing. Tonight, however, my unsatisfying pizza life is now over!

Pure delight

Monday, December 13th, 2004

Easily the best dark chocolate I’ve ever had is made right here in Alaska. It’s called Theobroma and contains no dairy! The setup and ease of navigation on their website leaves much to be desired, but the taste of their Dark Satin chocolate makes it all worth it. What’s more, they’ll even […]

The first tasty imitation

Monday, April 26th, 2004

Another thing I can’t tolerate - quite literally - is dairy. So for my fellow intolerants out there, I’ll be collecting tasty imitations of real food recipes.
Creamy Ranch Dressing/Dip
A friend of mine adjusted this recipe and came up with a pretty good imitation for a Ranch-like dressing.
Mix:
1 ½ teaspoons vinegar
