    Ah. Yes, it is manufactured in a facility that has other products. We aren't that sensitive here, thank God! Of all the flours I've tried, theirs has the best texture. Not grainy at all. So, glad we can use it without issue. I'm sure some Celiacs can't, but they will know what rice flour to use. All my recipes state rice flour or another flour.

    Default Passover Brownies

    Leaven-Free Brownies

    5 oz bittersweet chocolate (I just use the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)
    3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
    3 tbsp butter (I use ghee)
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    3 large eggs
    5 tbsp olive oil or other cooking oil
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/8 tsp salt
    3/4 cup rice flour
    2/3 cup chopped almonds or pecans (optional)

    Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 " cake pan.

    Melt chocolate in medium bowl over hot water. Stur until smooth. Remove from water; cool 5 minutes.

    Soften butter. Mix butter, both sugars and eggs until light and fluffy. (I use a hand-crank mixer.) Add oil, cinnamon, salt, flour and melted chocolate. Beat slowly to combine. Add nuts if using.

    Spoon batter into pan. Bake 25 minutes until color has changed evenly on top and a toothpick inserted 2 " from center comes out clean. Do not overbake.

    Have you all tried Miss Maggie's Frugal Abundance website? She was the originator of Hillbilly Housewife and then sold it and started Frugal Abundance. It is full of GFCF recipes.

    Thanks for the Link Hawthorne. I have forwarded it to my DD who is not only celiac but also has lots of allergies too. I hope this will help her food taste better. I have practiced with different recipes without too much happy success. AL

    The Betty Crocker mixes are pretty good. I like Namaste mixes too. And, Bob's Red Mill mixes are really good. I try to bake from scratch using rice flour, sorghum flour or a flour mix. But having a mix on hand can be a big help for emergencies.

    Default Pie Crust

    Pie Crust (Bob's Red Mill Recipe)

    Note: double this recipe for a covered pie. I use this crust to make pot pies as well as fruit pies. Yummy.

    1 1/2 cup GF All Purpose Baking Flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup butter or margarine (I use ghee)
    4-6 tbsp cold rice milk

    Combine flour and salt, then cut butter in using a pastry blender or your hands until mixture resembles course meal.

    Add milk 1 tbsp at a time until all ingredients are moist. Roll out pie crust as usual.

    To bake the crust alone - bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes

    To bake pie crust with filling - bake at 400 for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake for an additional 40 minutes.

    Default Swedish Meatballs

    Swedish Meatballs

    1 small onion, finely chopped
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 lb ground meat (I use only beef, but you can use your preferred blend)
    3/4 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp ground allspice
    1/4 tsp cracked pepper
    3/4 cup beef broth
    1 egg, lightly beaten

    Saute onions in 1 tbsp olive oil. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.

    In a large bowl, combine spices, then add ground meat and mix together with your hands. Add beaten egg and cooked onion, then mix the meat with your hands.

    Shape into meatballs.

    Heat oil in skillet on medium heat. Cook meatballs until done, about 3 minutes per side. Remove meatballs and set aside.

    Add broth to skillet and simmer until liquicde is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

    Return meatballs to skillet and simmer in broth for one minute more.


    Variation:

    Add flavoring to broth when reducing. I like raspberry chipotle bottled marinade. Ikea uses lignonberry preserves. You could use tomato paste.


    Put meatball mixture into a loaf pan for a meatloaf. Top with the reduced broth mixture. I haven't tried this so YMMV.
