  I go to the University of Maryland as well! Smiley  I didn't go to Maryland Day, but I saw all the pictures on their website!  They did a pretty awesome job!  Do you know if they ask students to help or do they have caterers do it?  Go Terps!

The University of Maryland Bakery made them. It took two months. They made 52,000 total, the extra 2000 in case something happened. Dr Mote and his wife made the first 24, lol. Then the food service people who work in the dining halls and student volunteers gave them out (for free of course). What year are you/ what do you study?

  Thats pretty cool!  I technically should have graduated this year, but I spent a couple of years at Montgomery College after high school.  So I am starting my junior year as a Special Ed major and then I will go straight into Maryland's Graduate program.  What about you?

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: ~*~*Reviews of Prepackaged Vegetarian and Vegan Foods*~*~ on: June 24, 2008 06:54:48 AM
  I loooove Quorn frozen products.  All of their products are meat free and I believe they are all soy free as well!  They have everything from "meat" balls to "chicken" cutlets to a "turkey" roast.  Everything has great texture, taste, and looks appealing.  I like to use the cutlets in any recipe that requires chicken.  They are also great on the grill will some bbq sauce!  Here's the website with a list of all their products, recipes, and a store locator!

6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: ADHD/Autism cookbook thoughts?? on: May 28, 2008 08:44:54 AM
  I'm sorry if you took my reply as an attack, because it was definitely not intended to be that way at all!  I didn't realize you were looking for people who had actually tried the recipes.  I thought you were just looking for thoughts on it.  I really do apologize.  And believe, me I know how difficult it is to have a child with disabilities.  My older sister has CP/Intellectual disabilities.  I have grown up my whole life around people with disabilities and know about the struggles all too well.  I also have done respite for a family friend with a teenager with Autism, so a lot of my opinion was coming from conversations I have had with his mom.  I was just throwing out my opinion because I do think the whole Jenny McCarthy idea has given people the wrong idea, I was in no way trying to say that everyone was using it for a cure.

  As someone who is majoring in special education and has had a lot of experience with people with Autism/disabilities, I find the diet "cure" quite unbelievable.  You either have Autism or you don't.  It seems like to me if a gluten and queso free diet is helpful, the problem in the beginning was an allergy problem.  If you're sick from eating foods that make you sick, it is hard to concentrate and of course you would be irritable.  I don't know, just my opinion.
8  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Coeliac Vegetarian!! HELP!! I need recipes! on: March 21, 2008 03:05:04 PM
  My granddad has Celiacs and he was living with us for awhile.  I am also a vegetarian so it really was tricky to find a lot of options that would accommodate us both.  It is crazy some of the stuff that has gluten in it that you would never expect!  Be careful with some soups.  Some people and companies use flour to thicken the soup.  Also, some soy sauces and mayonnaise contain gluten.   

  Bob's Red Mill(http://www.bobsredmill.com/) have a lot of alternative flours that you can replace with regular flours when you bake.  When I bake my granddad cakes and cookies I use rice flour. They also have cake, cookie, breads, and brownie mixes that only require you to add some additional ingredients like milk and butter. 

  Whole Foods also carries gluten free food.  They have pizzas, cookies, and bread that you can get.  Sometimes they even have fresh goods in the bakery. 

  http://www.glutenfree.com/home.aspx?CategoryCode=42  Is a good source to buy almost everything!     

  Hopefully this helps!!  Good Luck with everything!!!
9  COOKING / Dessert / Re: sugar cookies and icing? on: March 14, 2008 01:27:27 PM
My favorite sugar cookie recipe is from Wilton( the one on the back of their cookie cutters).  Everyone in my house loves these!  I think its the almond extract that makes them extra yummy!  I actually doubled the recipe because the original just didn't seem to make enough!  My granddad has Celiacs disease and I have made these with rice flour and they taste just as great!
It makes about 4 dozen give or take depending on your size of cookies! 
Heat your oven to 400*f

-2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter                        -1 teaspoon almond extract
-3 cups granulated sugar                                    -5 1/2 cups flour
-2 eggs                                                           -4 teaspoons baking powder
-3 teaspoons vanilla extract                                -2 teaspoon salt

   In mixer bowl, cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs and extracts.  Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; add to butter mixture 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.  DO NOT CHILL THE DOUGH!!  Divide into 2 balls and roll out.  Roll out somewhat thick (personal preference, I like them somewhat soft).  Bake cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet for 5 minutes.  ENJOY!
