1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: teething biscuits- suggestions please on: February 20, 2008 05:29:40 PM
I can honestly say I haven't heard of teething "biscuts"... BUT I saw something a while back on the TODAY show or GMA and they had cloth teething rings.

This seemed very simple to make out of some washable fabric, or washcloths.

Maybe roll up a washcloth... sew the ends together to make a ring and WOOOLAH!! a teething ring... throw some water on it, freeze it, and you have a washable (potentially messy & drooly) cloth teething ring.
I don't have kids, but this might be an ok idea, yet potentially drooly!!

Hi. This isn't a recipe, only a suggestion  Grin For a gluten free in-a-pinch dessert idea.
I modified it from an 'almost homemade' cooking show...
It's an APPLE CRISP idea...
peel, slice about 4 apples (empires, or another crisp baking apples work best)
put them in a lightly greased baking dish
throw about a 1/2 stick of marge/butter (melted)
about 1/4 cup of brown sugar
about 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
about 1/4 gluten free flour (i used corn flour, it was OK-- all purpose GF is probably best)
about 2/3c- 1c of water
MIX and pour it over the apples
Bake for about 20-25 mins on 350ish or until apples are tender, not mushy

I am not very accurate w/ my baking or cooking...

By the way, what is a 'PM'

My dad used to make this sandwich, that i LOVE as a treat... he called it the "poor italian girl's sandwich".
italian bread, jelly, and ricotta cheese.

It's a sweet late night treat. Sounds gross, but It's NOT Smiley
I keep skim riccotta in the fridge often, for such cravings.

So my parents decided to make this dish someone has called "garbage".

It consists of:
Ground beef
black olives
frozen peas
cream of celery soup
and tater tots (potato wedges)

It is so gross! I just had to rant to someone about my parents crazy concoction, and I figured craftsters refined taste would agree with my upset tummy. (of course I didn't eat it, it looked too nasty to try and chew)

Now, if anyone has had something similar to this, I apologize for any offense. Anyone want to share their family "gross" recipes/dishes?

I went to college, briefly, outside of Rochester, NY... And I guess in midstate/western NY there is a never ending craze of "the garbage plate"... and you get to choose from like grilled cheese, hot dogs (minus buns) or hamburgs (minus buns) as your base, then like mac salad, mac n cheese, or something to the mac affect, there are other layers i'm forgetting, potatos, mashed or fried- but then they top it off with like ketchup or hot sauce. thats a mess to me.

Tuna would cheap & easy
Hummus would be ok in there with some red peppers--> a jar of red peppers will last you too.
When I was living in a dorm, my roomie had a little electric ceramic contraption that boiled water, in small amounts.  That might be a good thing to have, to boil like one egg.  You could make egg & olive (or just egg salad)

I love cucumber sammies with cream cheese... you can probably nab some single serve cream cheese from the dinning hall... I am NOT one to condone stealing, but... I don't see why you can't get a little extra CC on the side  Wink

Boca, Morningstar Farms, and a couple other companies also make fake meats that are pretty much like the real thing. I love the Morningstar Crumbles, which is imitation ground beef, and the fake chicken patties are tasty too. That might be a way to ease into it, since it has the appearance and texture of meat. I'm not sure where you are, but they are pretty easy to find in US grocery stores.

YES YES!! The crumbles (mock-o meat as i call it) is a great way... Throw it in a pan, add a packet of taco seasoning & some water ( to keep it moist) and cut up your man-friendly veggies, lettuce, tomatos, onion, or whatever you like.  He can build his own too, when he is all of a sudden hungry. Plus the mock-o stuff doesnt take long to cook and be ready.

Great topic, especially for those of us that are ::new:: to vega-something-isms.

I've always ate meat, and always have been a "good eater."  I was always willing to try anything once, especially if it was something identifiable, or natural- made from "real" ingredients... The past few years, I tried tofu a few times instead of chicken in my chinese take out, which did NOT make me feel yucky (like the chicken always had).
I did see a "cruelty" video online, which peaked my interest to find out the big deal was with organic meats/eggs etc. versus NOT organics.  I tried organic chicken for a while and swore off red meat, then I just decided no more meat for me... at least for a while. After about 2-3 weeks I felt like a new person, like I quit smoking, I felt healthier and better than ever.

Meat-free since October-ish 2007.  I do fish, eggs, cheese, no walking flesh.

As a new year resolution, I decided to go GLUTEN FREE, to see if it would have an affect on my body-- of course it has.  I have always suffered from moderate to severe (time of year matters) eczema.  As a reward for being so good for the past 3 weeks, a few days ago I ::splurged:: and ate 2 small triangles of pizza... 2 days later and my back and legs are all inflamed & flared up with eczema.  So I'm going gluten free too.  (Very special occasions & worth while sampling aside).

Yay!! This sounds great!
But if I were to use regular sugar instead of splenda, is it 2c, rather than 1c?
