    Last weekend, I made some fantastic gluten-free buttermilk Belgian waffles from scratch (for my INTP friend who's got a wheat allergy). I'm not modest - these were great.

    Ingredients:

    - 1 3/4 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour
    - 1 tsp baking powder
    - 1 tsp baking soda
    - 1/2 tsp salt
    - 1 tbsp brown sugar
    - 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    - 1/2 tsp ginger
    - pinch of ground cloves
    - 2 eggs (or 1/2 cup Eggbeaters)
    - 2 cups cultured fat-free buttermilk
    - 1/3 cup canola oil (or butter- but I used canola oil, as I was low on butter. I assume it'll come out the same w/ butter, though)
    - 2 tsp vanilla extract



    Instructions:

    1.) Preheat waffle iron. (I have this one - a light shuts off/it beeps when it's preheated, as well as when the waffles are done)

    2.) while the iron heats, mix all the dry ingredients well, in a large mixing bowl, w/a wire whisk.

    3.) in a separate mixing bowl, beat the 2 eggs, until well mixed.

    4.) add remaining wet ingredients to the egg-bowl; blend well.

    5.) pour wet mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix ONLY until moistened - batter should be lumpy.

    6.) let the batter rest about 5 min, then pour 1/4-1/3 cup batter into waffle maker, & close it. Scrape away any excess that may ooze out.

    7.) most waffle irons will indicate when the waffle is finished cooking. Serve immediately, with butter, syrup, fruit - whatever you like best. And coffee. Serve with coffee, or you're going to Hell.


    This batter didn't bake up well when used later that day, but the waffles themselves keep very well overnight & put in a toaster. They freeze well, too. You can't actually taste the spices at all, or the sugar. They were kinda bland without it, though. Hard to explain.



    Thought I'd share this, as I know gluten-free baking can be a pain in the ass, & some folks on the forum have to eat gluten-free ( @Sinmara ). I couldn't tell the difference between these & Belgian waffles made with white flour- though personally I prefer whole wheat flour. I'm gonna try that in this recipe next time, with some slivered almonds. I may try subbing in the oil for nonfat yogurt. It works in pancakes, sometimes - but I've a feeling it may result in softer waffles (vs the crispy outside/tender/fluffy inside this recipe currently yields), which may be less desirable in terms of holding up toppings.

    Made a bunch of whole wheat Belgian waffles, broke them up (just a quarter is pretty damn filling - likely because whole grains tend to be heavier than shitty white flour) & froze them.

    I bought a bag of King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour, & used the recipe on their website, with a few substitutions.

    Whole Wheat Waffles Recipe | King Arthur Flour

    In place of the sugar, I used brown sugar (had it on hand in the freezer). Subbed unsweetened vanilla almond milk for the regular milk, as the waffles seemed too dense when I tried it w/regular milk. Canola oil for the vegetable oil.

    Added 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, & pinch of cloves. Also about 1/8cup hand-chopped (not sliced) almonds.

    They came out awesome. Had a quarter of one with sugar-free (Splenda sweetened) maple syrup. Might up the chopped almonds by a tbsp next time.

    Froze really well, and reheated perfectly in the toaster, slightly above the medium heat setting. I'm going to save these as an every once in awhile treat for breakfast, as I prefer less sweet stuff, like egg white veggie wraps/omelettes & a piece of fruit for breakfast, more often. Waffles, even a small serving, just feel too heavy to start your day with all the time.

    I didn't cook anything today but here's what I cooked this weekend:

    - potato beet sausage skillet with fried eggs (great)
    - zucchini noodles with pesto, cheese, and sausage (good)
    - szechuan tofu with eggplant (okay)
    and it's nice enough to

    I have been making this Thai Noodle dish every week. It's addictive and tastes great cold too. Actually, the recipe is for a cold salad version but I like to make it warm and add whatever veggies I have kicking around.






    Last night I made this as practice for a dinner I want to make for someone important. I would WELCOME suggestions on how to plate this more attractively. I can make the rice distinctive but then the sauces just look like splodges on a plate and run into the rice Are there ways to get around this? I know nothing about plating so please, even basics are appreciated.

    Just put a garnish on that meaty orange sauce part... I think it will look better. Idk maybe some toasted almond flakes or some such

    Now I need to read more of this thread.

    I will probably make pumpkin spice cookies tonight... out of a bag... with cream cheese icing out of a plastic can.
    I know, I'm lame. But it's the most I can seem to manage nowadays.

    (last week, I used the slow cooker to cook a pork loin with bagged sauce to have pork BBQ meals for a few days. It actually was good. But I haven't done much from scratch at all in recent years.)



    I was always looking for a decent way to make General Tso's (or sesame chicken) in terms of the batter, but I don't want to use a deep fryer. It never seems to cook in the cool lumpy way the restaurants do.

    Nothing special, just frozen chicken burger things but I did bake some sliced mushrooms with a bit of oil and liberal slosh of balsamic vinegar for 10 minutes. I know how to accessorise.
