Here is the one I got, at Macys. It says "Grinding Suggestions": black peppercorns, nutmeg, whole cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, anise or fennel seeds, flax or sesame seeds, nuts (for chopped nuts), nuts (for nut flour). I have some whole millet.... want me to see if it works?

Man, if it can do peppercorns it should be able to do millet. Give it a whirl!!!

Very cool. Have you noticed if it heats things up like a coffee grinder does?

This might work as bars. The cookies hold up. 12 min. for soft chewy cookies, longer for crispy.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Mix Well:

¾ c. palm shortening
1 ½ c. sucanat or brown sugar
2 flax eggs (6T water, 2T flax seeds)

3 c. oats
1 c. dried cranberries
3/4 c. rice flour

With Wooden spoon combine wet and dry ingredients.
Bake at 350 for 12 – 15 min

Is this going to keep falling off the page because it's not a sticky anymore? How do we get it back to being a sticky.
post #387 of 483

It didn't heat things up as far as I can tell. It made walnut flour (like almond flour -- oops, I ground for too long, since I just wanted chopped nuts). And the millet flour was perfect.

The grinder looks nice. I might feel more patient about not having a blendtec with something like that.
Did you buy it at the regular store?

I got it at Macys. It was $40 I think, on sale. I had sold some of my gold jewelry that I had (rings from old boyfriends and single earrings I couldn't find the match for) and got duplicates of some of my small appliances so I didn't have to move them back and forth every summer. But the grinder was a new one. I really like it. I got tapioca starch and sweet potato starch at the Asian Market last time and it's not as fine as the other stuff I was getting. So I whirl it before I use it so I don't have little clumps.

Crepes that would work as sandwich wraps (contains eggs)

Just wanted to say that I make crepes often, with some variation of flour. I do use eggs and haven't had success with egg replacers in crepes. Anyway, today I added more potato starch than usual. My flour was about 1 part oat flour (could use millet or buckwheat, I think), 1 part potato starch and 2 parts rice flour. I haven't used potato starch much, but these crepes were much drier (not stiffer, just not so wet on the surface) and I think they'd make good sandwich wraps for that reason.

My recipe was 1/4 cup oat flour, 1/4 cup potato starch, 1/2 cup rice flour, 3/4 cup rice milk, 1/4 cup water, 2 eggs, a drizzle of olive oil, 1 tsp sugar, a dash of salt. I've made them with more or less sugar and various combinations of water and rice milk. Makes about 6 wraps. You have to keep mixing the batter so you don't end up with a lot of flour at the bottom of your bowl when you get to crepe #6 (or maybe 7).

I'd ask MoonWillow and explain that it's a frequently used resource and having to Search for it because no one's added to it for a few days is inconvenient. I think they're trying to clean up the messiness that the stickies grew into, but this, in this forum, seems more useful when it's up-top. But I'd ask and see what happens.
post #393 of 483
You guys. I'm SOOOOOO sorry. I didn't add this to the resources.
I meant to!
Please accept my apologies. It will be there bolded and shiny for everyone in about two seconds.
SO SORRY!

ETA. Done. Its first on the list of resources and bolded. Cool?

Red Cabbage and Apple Salad - like a coleslaw

Jacqueline, do only the cool kids get your blog address?

Red Cabbage and Apple Salad
By Diana Rattray, About.com

For the best flavor, prepare this salad and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
Ingredients:

* 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
* 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
* 1 tablespoon honey
* 1 tablespoon spicy or Creole mustard
* 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
* 2 medium unpeeled Gala, Red Delicious, or Fuji apples, cored, quartered, and thinly sliced crosswise
* 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
* 3 cups coarsely shredded red cabbage
* 2 cups coarsely shredded green cabbage
* 3/4 cup dried cranberries
* 3/4 cup pecan halves, toasted, optional
* salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:
Whisk both vinegars and mustard in small bowl. Gradually whisk in the honey and olive oil.

Toss apples with lemon juice, shredded cabbage, and dried cranberries. Add dressing and toss. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in pecans, if using. Refrigerate the salad and toss again before serving.
Serves 6.
I made this without apples, pepper, lemon juice or pecans but added shredded carrots and red grapes and raw onions. And instead of the spicy mustard I used Annie's honey mustard. Really good!!!

Sorry. I forgot it's not in my siggie anymore. My blog. Things are dairy, egg, gluten, coconut, peanut, and most tree nut (maybe contain pine nuts in the future) free, although I may add optional nuts (which I won't add but will tell people they can add ). I try for corn free too, but it's not a restriction of ours so... Mostly soy free as well.
That salad sounds really delish, Tracy. :

ETA: And I thought you had my blog address, Tracy, so if it was "only the cool kids", you can feel safe in knowing you're counted there.

Thanks Jacqueline!

I edited the above because I forgot to say that I also included raw diced onions.
