I never thought I'd be able to make good old mac n cheese again for my kids. Of course, we're on the gluten-free dairy-free diet, but also no soy. So, there was no good cheese substitute to try - and even those that are soy-based are truly gross. And then came Daiya cheese. No, this isn't an ad for Daiya. But, it is the first cheese of its type that really has taste, and melts, etc. No dairy, no gluten and no soy. So, here's the recipe - it's just adapted from a typical cookbook recipe. I promise, this will work. Enjoy.

I found a recipe for Batter Fried Chicken Nuggets over at the GFCF Recipes Yahoo site at Recipe Circus. (So, no credit to me for the recipe) At first glance, I didn't think it could possibly work. Well, it does. There's no author listed. And, I -- of course -- played with the recipe a little bit. The best part of this recipe is that you can use any flour you like and it turns out pretty much like the nuggets you buy at McDonalds. So, if that's what you're looking for, this is the recipe.
- chicken: I cut up about 3 breasts. - 1/3 cup gf flour (I used about 80 percent brown rice flour and 20 percent tapioca) - 1/4 tsp sea salt - 1 1/2 tsp Heinz vinegar (or other gf brand) - 1/4 tsp baking soda - 1/3 cup water
So, you mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Then, combine the vinegar and soda in another small bowl, quickly dumping it in the flour as it reacts. Then, quickly add the water. Whisk well. Let this sit for about 5 minutes. It thickens. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a frying …
One of the most common recipe questions I get is about finding good gluten free pizza crust. Now with Dayai cheese in the store, the cheese factor has been resolved for most of us. And, the toppings are so variable that virtually any diet challenge can be met by some mix of veggies and/or meats. And, unless you're dealing with a tomato issue, there's plenty of store-bought and homemade sauce options (if tomato is an issue - try pierogi pizza - I'll be posting that recipe soon).
But, the crust! I've tried some of the store GFCF crusts and I'm not really happy with them. Some just taste horrible - sorry, but they do. And, those that work are horribly expensive. Call me cheap, but $5-$6 is a lot for a smallish crust. I'd much rather make some on my own.
I've reached a point where I can make a simple, tasty crust - that even I like to eat, and would serve to guests. I'll admit, this has taken years of adapting, tweaking, changing, etc ... but, I'm at …
