Join The Lil Chef and Myself on our "Food Adventures"! There will be recreations of "Old Classics", exploration of new Allergy Free products (as they come out), the making of my many food cravings, and testing of recipes. We are ALWAYS trying to raise awareness of food allergies & intolerances one post at a time. This page Gluten Free, Wheat Free, mostly Allergy Free, hopefully, one day Yeast Free, NO red meat, Dairy, and Lactose Free.
I Really Really like the Amy's Gluten & Dairy Free Burritos! But! why did I not think of this sooner?! Why not make my own? (Technically, I had thought of this but none of the wraps I ever used worked!) My homemade burritos are not perfect but it's a work in progress.
The Amy's Burrito says rice and bean and I happen to have both of those ingredients yesterday so why not? The picture on the left is the Amy's and what I decided to eat with it because I can no longer have sour cream or greek yogurt :(
The mixture consisted of refried beans (which I'm reintroducing myself to), corn, diced tomatoes, and spicy guacamole. I mixed that plus some leftover rice I had in the fridge, warmed up the wraps, put the rice and bean mixture in them and my version of a burrito.
(These are the wraps I used)
Alright so today... I ate my 1st homemade burrito and I was impressed how well the wraps did. WAAAAAAY TO GO Toufayan!!!
Back to business... I definitely need to "over season" the mixture the next time. It's missing something... I'll do more beans and more seasonings or actually season it. This is a wonderful idea for make ahead (quick) meals. I will do this again!
Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
