ok, so tonight, my 4 year old (almost 5) co-chef and i followed one of my grandma's recipes from her "allergy" book that i inherited to make some pizza, that boy oh boy, was really quite yum and super easy really, even though it involved yeast. we even adapted it because we didn't have enough rice flour so used some all purpose bobs red mill gf flour mix. so officially i haven't tried just the rice flour version. i'll try it and let people know if it's just as good. if anybody is dying for the recipe, lemme know.
it's the first recipe that i've tried from that book and i'm totally impressed. it was such an easy recipe and didn't require 234522 binders and gums and 345 flours and a bit of milk and a bit of potato. etc.

also, yesterday, the chef and i made some biscuits. they were OK. nothing fantastic. again, using bob's red mill biscuit mix. we added cinamon and sugar to a little finger hole we poked in the top and shoved some raisins in there as well.

i swear i don't work for bob. i tried some of the gf bread mix, that even includes the yeast packet. it was really good. it wasn't that good right out of the oven, but a couple of hours later, and the next day, it sliced up very nicely and toasted almost like wheat bread (only had to push it down once!! with the setting full blast of course) again, it didn't take that long and was worth the extra effort. plus the kid enjoyed making it.

Rice Cakes

Maybe it's the result of an overload, but I am beginning to strongly believe that rice cakes are seriously misnamed. I'd be happy to take suggestions for new names and pass them on to the manufacturers. We should probably steer clear of such things as rice Styrofoam or dry tasteless slabs of congealed rice.
