Just make Khalua pancakes and be done with it. Or make small pancakes and dunk them in white russians. Both are equally awesome, though none as good as pure pancakes with peanut butter melting all over them.

Pancakes are failed waffles. Give be a big Belgian waffle with malt added to the batter.
Cook it until crispy, pile on some bacon and drown it in real maple syrup.

The new bacon is fried chicken. I've noticed that a lot of NYC restaurants have added it to their menu, but they only serve it certain days and times, as if it is a specialty item that is always in short supply.

Why the scary tag? Is it bad to try new foods, or is it scary that trendy restaurants will sometimes try to be on the cutting edge of food trends? Personally, I am not a fan of a lot of modern haute cuisine, as I like the old school 'good food, and lots of it' model, and I do find trendy people sometimes shallow and lacking in understanding of why they are following trends.

I have a few friends who eat quite well and avoid gluten, as it upsets their digestive tract. They're not celiac, they just feel kinda bloated/gassy after a pasta meal. They're DEFINITELY not low-carb though, i've never seen human beings eat so much risotto in one session.

I have to say I'm glad for my lactose intolerance because I've been ignoring delicious alternatives far too long. Had I not finally surrendered last year I never would have tried Almond or Coconut milk. Not to mention they have longer shelf lives than getting traditional milk, but hey, I have noticed that even cooking with the stuff has better results too. And then there's the occasional cold cereal breakfast. It's nice that I can get into the office and then not have to worry about getting sick 15 minutes into my morning.

It is always nice to find a true believer that puts peanut butter on pancakes. I also put PB on waffles. Good thing to try: make corn muffin pancakes. Jiffy corn muffin mix has waffle/pancake directions on the side of the box. It's pretty darn good and goes well with peanut butter.

Use buckwheat flour. Most of the goofy buckwheat pancake mixes that are sold have regular flour in them as well. I make mine by using 50% buckwheat flour and 50% homemade gluten free all purpose flour (brown rice flour, white rice flour, tapioca flour, xantham gum). Works wonderfully. Especially with some mashed sweet potatoes mixed in to the batter. Dammit, now I'm hungry.

Ms. Gough and the rest of the non-celiac gluten sensitive family use Pamela's gluten-free mix for pancakes and waffles. It's mostly almond flour and I'm at the point where I much prefer them to regular pancakes/waffles.

If it actually makes you feel like crap that's fine. I can't eat anything with MSG. Well, I can but it gives me a terrible headache. But probably 99% of people are only doing it cause they think it's cool to tell people they're "gluten free". Or as I said, fat-asses masking a diet with a "allergy".

I have loved bacon all my life, so as far as I'm concerned it can stay 'in.' Sliders can GTFO. Peruvian? There will always be some regional schtick that comes out of obscurity to create a trend, and it will eventually fade away again to the periphery, like fondue or Polynesian.

Seems to me that the only way exotic cooking styles stick is when we end up with a *shiatload* of immigrants, like with Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Vietnamese, Jewish delis, gyros, falafel & shawarma, etc.

My other daughter (b) is not picky at all, and they are both toddlers. I just discussed gluton testing daughter (a) with the wife this morning as a matter of fact.

Meantime, I've been wanting to try more glutton free foods, as I have become somewhat intollerant to some foods as I've aged. I know it may be "trendy" and all, but who cares - I like trying new things, and until we get the wee one tested, I'd like to see how she and even I take to different gluton free foods over the weekend.

Second! Just this week I drove nearly an hour to get some pollo a la brasa (and a glass of homemade chicha morada to boot), and it was worth every minute. Tried making it on the grill once, but it just wasn't the same.

I really wish this stuff would grow more popular in the ATL. It seems like even the good Peruvian restaurants close down from lack of patronage.

Phaeon: naughtyrev: Just make Khalua pancakes and be done with it. Or make small pancakes and dunk them in white russians. Both are equally awesome, though none as good as pure pancakes with peanut butter melting all over them.

It is always nice to find a true believer that puts peanut butter on pancakes. I also put PB on waffles. Good thing to try: make corn muffin pancakes. Jiffy corn muffin mix has waffle/pancake directions on the side of the box. It's pretty darn good and goes well with peanut butter.


When my wife and I first started dating, we quickly realized that we both put PB on pancakes (and waffles) and we knew it was meant to be. I'll give the corn muffin pancakes a try.

thornhill: I really don't get it. I know people who claim that they suddenly were tired/low energy all the time, saw a doctor, and now act as if they come into contact with flour dust they'll be dead in 5 minutes.


We live in a culture of abundance, where we all have access to anything and everything we could want, all the time. So qualities like discipline and self-control end up manifesting in a decision to abstain, and then that abstention, because it requires a constant awareness and conscientiousness re: food, becomes rolled into the person's identity; that's where the over-reaction and self-righteousness comes from. We also don't really like to be seen as vain, so ascribing a medical need, even subconsciously, is preferable. Otherwise, asking people to go out of their way to accommodate your dietary restrictions that they themselves don't follow is basically saying "I'm not going to eat this, because if I do, I'll be fat, like you."

I know some people who have genuine medical issues with gluten, but I also know a lot of people who claim it makes them low-energy or piss out of their ass or whatever. I get it, partially; I stay away from processed foods and all grains most of the time, but I do it to keep a low weight and high energy. But I have no problem admitting that I do it primarily to stay slim. And I don't think gluten-free has anything to do with a healthy diet. Hell, there's a gluten-free bakery just across the parking lot from my office, run by a family with celiac; I could head over there and have cake for lunch. It wouldn't be healthy, but it would be gluten-free.

It seems to be a poluar opinion that trying things because they are trendy is stupid.

*waves stupidly*

It's not all so bad is it? When people have fun trying trendy stuff?

Why just the other day I went in to a trendy shop because it was having a sale, and I found some old school design top hats on sale and bought one *gasp*.

It's all you really need to keep your head warm in SoCal this time of year anyay. Was I being practical or trendy? *clinches fists* Who can really tell?

There's a place called China Poultry not far from my home I had never actually visited. I've noticed they've had lines out the door lately. Being "trendy" I decided to get in line and talk to people to see what the fuss was about. Gezzuz, were they ever excited about chicken! So I brought home a free range organic chicken and a dozen organic eggs.

I haven't tasted poultry so delicious since I was in Central America.

Damn trendy people, they really need to get the "why" they are doing something straight before they try it, or they are just idiots, idiots I tell you!

thornhill: The new bacon is fried chicken. I've noticed that a lot of NYC restaurants have added it to their menu, but they only serve it certain days and times, as if it is a specialty item that is always in short supply.


I have perfected fried chicken that can be devoured by celiacs. I love fried chicken.

Also, the cocnut milk frozen stuff is awesome, better than ice cream.

I don't think that's a trend. That's, like, staple diet elements of coastal regions between the tropics of cancer and capricorn. Seafood has been eaten with lime and lemon for a very long time because the citric acid denatures the proteins in seafood, which changes the texture and kills bacteria the way cooking it does.

Sliders were never a good idea.  It made for a dry bready mess.  When you're using White Castle as a cooking template, you're doing it wrong.

Let's not overstate things. Coconut milk ice cream does taste pretty good, but is in now way better than traditional ice cream made with whole milk and heavy whipping cream. One of the major benefits of coconut milk ice cream is that it is relatively low in calories.

shArkh: abhorrent1: Ant: Stupid low gluten fad. Very few of you bandwagon hoppers are actually allergic to gluten! Knock it off!

/loves me some gluten

It's an excuse for their low carb diet. Saying they're allergic to gluten sounds better than "I'm fat and need to lose weight".

Point of order, I -tried- a gluten-free diet for a bit because I constantly felt like refried ass since moving to this here us of a (sort of "paleo", no processed-anything, wheat, sugar) and now I can't eat a slice of bread without being stuck on the shiatter all the next day. It's like I made myself intolerant of it :( /sucks


Same thing will happen if you quit eating meat for a while then eat a burger, what's your point?
 
2013-01-04 02:02:32 PM  

Peepeye: I'm not gonna lie: I would definitely try coconut milk pancakes. What's wrong with trying new foods?

I work at an Italian restaurant. People get mad that we don't offer gluten free pasta. Offering rosemary potatoes or extra veggies doesn't satisfy them.


WHY ARE YOU GOING TO AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT THEN!?!? *Slams head on desk*

I hate farking people "OH NOES! The entire world won't cater to my diet needs WAHHHHH!" I'm just happy for any substitute at all!

Food can be prepared very nicely what I am talking about is coconut crusted and lime dunked. Maybe I should have said trendy food that doesn't translate that well to mass production. I will say that bacon fits into both camps nicely.

plewis: I don't know about Gluten free, but the Peruvian food I've eaten has been damned tasty!

WHAT THE FARK IS IT ABOUT GLUTEN FREE ANYWAY? That whole thing is just stupid for 99.9% of the people in the world without celiac disease (or however the fark you spell it - lazy). It is, quite simply THE ONLY protein you get from a vegan diet that's worth a crap.

I guess people are just dying to appear to be healthy in the eyes of their equally ignorant peers.


Modern wheat has been bred to have more gluten in it so that it rises better and for more protein. There's a theory that this increase is setting off people who are only carriers of the gene later in life. Also, Doctor's now realize that gluten-sensitivity/Celiac is not just a child's disease and can present itself later in life. Furthermore, the GF diet has only been around roughly 50 years, I wonder how many children just died mysteriously beforehand.

My Aunt almost died from Celiac in the 50's and was saved by the GF diet. However, in the past 15 years that side of the family has had an explosion of GI issues. A Great-Aunt was diagnosed with Celiac in her 70's, my Uncle was diagnosed with Celiac in his 50's, Colon Cancers among the Great-Aunts and Uncles, a cousin with Chrons, my Mom with Diverticulitis, and myself with IBS. Something is going on.

There's evidence that not just Celiacs and Gluten. Wheat Belly's author Dr. Davis claims it's not just gluten but also Gliadin. He claims Gliadin causes inflammation and an opiate addictive affect on the brain, definitely interesting and worth a read.

kicksmile: As a miserable glutard, I approve of this.

Peekoo: All you gluten-free haters are far more annoying than the gluten-avoiders. It seems just seeing the word "gluten" on a box sets you off, yet I've never heard a word from the people actually avoiding the stuff.

Some of us actually ARE allergic.


So much hate.......If I could swill barrels of beer and choke down loaves of warm developed bread without spewing my intestinal lining and breaking out in horrible blisters I would. Fark you haters, hope you develop a soy allergy so you can eat less than me.

/bitter like this farking salad which I hate so goddamuch.


Your allergies aren't real. When I was a kid, I don't remember so many people having all these allergies, so that means that they didn't exist, and are therefore a figment of your imagination.

Also, if you are going to take her for the gluten drug test, make sure she eats a lot of breadhand. My blood test came up negative for Gluten sensitivity but the issue was that my parents put me on a GF diet immediately 2 weeks beforehand when I was released from the hospital following my first IBS attack, so no anti-bodies in my bloodstream. Some doctors recommend eating bread with every meal for 3 weeks before the blood test to make sure there's enough antibodies for a positive result.

Also check for corn, tree nut, and dairy allergies (Lactose and caesin).

One of my best friends is starting an elimination diet to try to sort our her many, many allergies. She can no longer eat the following: gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, pork, beef, chicken, beans/lentils, coffee, citrus fruits, nuts, and nightshade vegetables.

At least we're both trying to save money these days by cooking at home.

The idea behind an elimination food diet is that you go without for a while then slowly add back a food group one at a time to see if it has a reaction or not. It's not supposed to be permanent (unless you're very unlucky and are allergic to all of them).

I don't know if there is usally gluten in ice-cream, but there's a sugar-free coconut ice cream at our local gluten-free store that is yummy. I pick up a box of ice cream bars once or twice every summer.

Bonus: tastes good but does not make you feel like you treated your diet like a 5-yr-old treats a piñata.

My friend is on the anti-Candida diet. This means no caffeine, no dairy, no gluten, no sugar, and I think only certain kinds of vinegar. She went from being sick/run down on an almost constant basis to getting sick maybe once a year.

I tried it for a month to see if it'd help with my energy levels. It did, by quite a bit, but it wasn't enough of a difference to change the way I live. Though it did help me switch out some bad habits with better ones (guac or hummas with snacks instead of a heavier dip, brown rice pasta instead of regular, coconut ice cream instead of regular, etc...)

Now she's slowly adding things back in to see what makes the biggest difference for her.

Before you bake it, you need to take a razor and score it. For a round loaf like that, make a square on top with the lines overlapping at the ends. It'll look neat. Just score it lightly, don't go too deep.

I make a great pancake but since the waffle iron has come into my life via the local thrift store, I am done making them as they're far too time consuming, but-coconut milk waffles? My waffle iron is so old that the hipsters would find it ironic. (70 years old, yo) and I'm wondering how that would play out. Decisions, decisions. But with enough PAM anything is possible. I may have to give that a spin. Food for thought. I just don't want to spend half a Sunday scrubbing out encrusted coconut waffle batter from my iron on a whim.
