Try this coconut milk ice cream: http://veganicecream.blogspot.com/20...t-squared.html

It's very yummy!! (VERY rich though... don't eat too much or you'll regret it. ) The coconut shreds are totally optional; I never added those.

I was making coconut milk ice cream this summer that tasted like egg nog. It was really good right out of the ice cream maker, but it froze too hard if there were any leftovers. I can't remember if that one made it to my website. I'll have to look around for the scrap of paper otherwise!

ooh we can have everything on that list.

what about if i don't have an ice cream maker? can i use the old "fill a freezer bag with ice cream mixture, put it inside a larger freezer bag filled with ice & salt, seal & shake" trick?

Yep- that's how I did it! Actually, I didn't even put in that much effort... I just put it in a bowl in the freezer, and stirred it every 15 minutes or so for a few hours. I'm sure it would have been even better if I would have done the salt/bag thing.

sweet. i know what i'm doing tomorrow.

good timing, too. summer left us yesterday. it's been raining and cold all day today. i'm currently in flannel jammie pants & a sweater. but, dammit, i will enjoy my first bite of ice cream in nearly a year. (and if we're talking real dairy-rific ice cream, that has been nearly 19m. *sigh*)

Thank You for posting the ice cream recipe! That's been a hard one for me to give up. I got over the cheese and yogurt cravings a while back, but the ice cream one still haunts me on occasion and now I can make my own! Hurray!!!

It's still bloody hot here, 91 tomorrow so I think some ice cream is in order for this weekend! :

i'll jump in with a recipe I used before we even found out my son has allergies to a couple of things.

Main meal

Chicken/turkey/pork chops (whichever you're in the mood for)
Sweet potato soup (plain, or just puree sweet potatoes and add a little water so that it's a tiny bit runny)Butternut squash also works.

Heat meat first in frying pan (just to brown outside)
Add soup and simmer until meat is cooked through.

Easy!!

Serve over rice, rice pasta or whatever you want!!

Do you add any spices to it? That actually sounds really good. I can do that on the pork/sweet potato day of the rotation. I can even add ginger to it or nutmeg. Have you tried it in the slow cooker?

I'm really having an urge to do pulled pork. I got gluten free beer, but I need to see what other ingredients are in it to see if I can really use it. The kids' ALCAT tests said they could have brewer's yeast and hops. Of course the regular allergy (skin prick) test showed that DD was allergic to yeast but I got conflicting information (written and oral) about whether it was brewer's yeast or baker's yeast. I still have to do a bunch of substitution, like maybe some white wine vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar, and I'll probably have to alter the spices. I'm just getting bored of our meals. Has anyone else done pulled pork?

I've attempted pulled pork, but not the style you sound like you're describing (which sounds really good).
My pork didn't pull apart easily whatsoever, which annoyed me. I guess I didn't cook it quite long enough, probably. It was cooked but not falling off the bone cooked.
I was trying for carnitas-style pulled pork. Barbecue pulled pork sounds so good.
Does that happen to fall on your maple day, Kathy? Because pork and sweet potatoes go so well with maple. Throw some of the ginger in there and my mouth is watering.

Well I'm lazy (ha ha) so I found a ready made soup that's pretty plain. In it are the sweet potatoes & reg potatoes, carrots, sea salt, canola oil, rice syrup - all purred together. I'm sure you could do anything you might normally want with sweet potatoes though!
Haven't tried the slow cooker, b/c I find it actually doesn't take that long to cook - a quick fry, then simmer (usually I simmer at a pretty high temp b/c I put a lot of liquid in and then it cooks much faster.)

MMMM...pulled pork, now I have a craving!!

I discovered a new favorite for me - sweet potato fries with honey/dijon mustard mix. It is the perfect complement to the sweetness of the fries.

Anyone have any idea of how to make "pizza" without dairy and tomatoes? I have been craving it SO much. Maybe olive oil and herbs as a sauce?

mmmm... I wish we could have sweet potatoes- that sounds YUMMY!

My favorite sauce on pizza is pesto (even before the allergy stuff). Or yeah- olive oil w/garlic & herbs would be tasty too. I'm sure there's a recipe somewhere for pizza crust with rice flour... and you could try Chreese for the cheese on top- they have a mozzarella 'flavor'.
post #175 of 483
Mmm pesto sounds good! Is Chreese soy? I forgot to add, we can't have soy either - I had been having soybean oil, and apparently that is okay, but I trialed soy flour (it was the last ingredient in the bagel I had for lunch) and DD is reacting tonight. I will be cutting out the soybean oil now for sure.

Nope- chreese is dairy/soy free. They also have gluten-free varieties, but those have some type of legume in them, so we couldn't do those. It's pretty much nutritional yeast and some herbs. Comes in a powder that you mix with water to make kind of a paste. I never tried in pizza-style, so I have no idea how it would come out. I had some on a grilled-cheese (the cheddar flavor), and it was pretty good.

I don't see any soy but I just glanced. I found the chreese I tried (gluten free) had a very "beany" flavour though.

I haven't figured out a way to do it without all nightshades, but peppers are okay for us now, so we can have it again.

Pulled Pork

3 bottles beer (I used gluten-free Redbridge, made with sorghum)
1 1/2 c. sugar (I used palm sugar, I used to use brown sugar)
1 Tbs. dry mustard
2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 1/2 c. white wine vinegar (I used to use apple cider vinegar)
2 Tbs. chili powder
2 tsp. sea salt
2 bay leaves

1 4-6 lb. pork roast (I use boneless)

Preheat oven to 300F.
Bring everything but the roast to a boil in a large pot. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes to blend flavors. Place pork in Dutch oven. Pour half the liquid over the pork. Cover and place in oven for 4-5 hours.

Boil remaining liquid on med. heat for about an hour (should reduce by half; I stirred every 15 minutes). Discard the bay leaves. When the pork is done, pull apart with fork. Put pork in liquid that was on stove, plus any liquid that was left in the Dutch oven. I used to like mine on a roll (so far, haven't been able to find a good gluten-free one) with baked beans.

Baked Beans

1 lb. dry navy beans
1 ham hock (I got mine from a pastured-animal farm in TX)
1/4 c. maple syrup
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 c. onion, minced
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 c. water

Soak beans overnight.
Drain.
I put everything in a crockpot and cooked on low for 10 hours.

The house smelled really good yesterday with both of these cooking!!

Here in Eugene, OR we have this place called Cafe Yumm - they make these Yumm bowls that are, well, yummy! It is basically rice, black or red beans, avocado, cheese, tomatoes, purple onions, sour cream, black olives, Yumm Sauce and cilantro. It fills you up like none other, while also being really healthy.

Since we have found out about DD's intolerances, I have been trying to find things to eat - so I modified this to make our own Yumm Bowls, with DD's intolerances in mind.

I layered jasmine rice with avocado, purple onions, black beans, chicken, and lemon juice on top (maybe a tbsp?) and it was amazing. I will probably be making my own Yumm Sauce sans soybeans though - here is a link to a copycat recipe that you can modify if you want - http://www.recipezaar.com/297251

It was really amazing and filling.

I do rice bowls -- cooked jasmine rice with diced cucumber, carrots, and avocado, with a little rice vinegar and salt & pepper. I started doing it after my sushi fell apart one day that I was trying to make, and I gave up and just put everything together in the bowl (except the seaweed, because it was annoying me). But I haven't had it in a while.... thanks for reminding me!!

Has anyone tried to use millet in cornmeal type recipes, like cornbread and cornmeal mush and polenta? I was making millet pancakes for DS this morning, and to me, millet flour is very similar to cornmeal in texture. I figure in the cornbread, I could use sorghum instead of wheat flour. Anyone experimented already?
