I bought Bruce Fife's Coconut Flour book - Cooking with Coconut Flour: A Delicious Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Alternative to Wheat: Bruce Fife: 9780941599887: Amazon.com: Books
Tried the Peanut Butter muffins and Coconut Bread this weekend. Neither of them actually rose. I think I made an error in the order of ingredients mixing ... and the salt/baking powder probably didn't get distributed around or dissolved as it should. So more experimentation to be had. The end result was still pretty tasty, if a tad dry (coconut flour is like that - Bruce recommends adding more fat to moisten if needed, or I just drink something with it or use it to sop up egg yolk or sauce.)intp | type 9w1 sp/sx/so

Made more coconut flour peanut butter muffins... this time remembering the sugar. Made them earlier @ lunchtime without it. Oops.
Meanwhile, I think I will try the crepe or pancake recipe from this book. Also want to bake a coffee cake. I don't think I've honestly baked a cake once in my life!
Also- those coconut flour recipes rise much nicer when you *follow the directions* and put the salt in the wet ingredient bowl, baking powder mixed/sifted in with the coconut flour before whisking.

Made coconut flour crepes with some shredded cheese inside this morning. This is my 3rd time using the recipe, I like how simple it is. It definitely needs a non-stick pan IMO; seasoned cast iron doesn't quite cut it.
It also needs a larger pan than what I was using... we have a large teflon pan but it's looking a bit sketchy, so I may prefer to replace it. Anyone have experience with those newfangled white "ceramic non-stick" pans I keep seeing at costco/kitchen supply stores/wegmans overpriced seasonal & misc section?intp | type 9w1 sp/sx/so

Had a belated St. Patrick's Day party yesterday! My three contributions:
Steak and Ale Pie - Foodness Gracious
- Used bacon instead of pancetta because I had it lying around
Irish Immigrant Stew | Drick's Rambling Cafe
- Added the potatoes at the same time as the beef, because the last time I made it they didn't cook enough
- Didn't add as much flour as I should have, so it wasn't a very thick broth
Chocolate Beer Cupcakes With Whiskey Filling And Irish Cream Icing Recipe - Allrecipes.com
- made two servings of frosting because one was NOT enough for all those cupcakes
The stew was good, the pie was REALLY good, and the cupcakes, as usual, were absolutely the freaking best ever. They are in the top three best kinds of cupcakes I have ever eaten.
