Long John Silver Inspired GF Fish

Beer Battered Cod:

 I've made "non beer" battered fish before and it's been good and not so good. The last time I made it, it came out way too crunchy and I LOVE crunchy foods. This time I'm going to use the recipe for The Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries I've also learned to halve the recipe. The complete recipe makes enough for like 4-6 people.I will post the ingredients and let's see what happens.


I have 3 thin pieces of yellowfin sole1 cup all-purpose flour (Gluten free All Purpose flour) (I used a 1/2 cup of flour)1 teaspoon garlic salt1 teaspoon onion salt1 teaspoon salt (Kosher Salt)1 teaspoon paprika1/2 cup water, or as needed (maybe because it was GF flour I used 3/4 cup)1 cup vegetable oil for frying (Olive Oil/Sunflower Oil)Season to taste.
(It was almost too salty, I suggest you season the flour, do pinches of salt and taste it before you batter the fish)

I guess you can say I had a huge soft fish taco/burrito type situation. The batter is so simple - GF Flour, seasonings and water. (I used the clean water setting on my Kangen water machine. I decided not to use the alkaline water, sometimes it changes the consistency of batter.) Measuring never really works with these recipes (for me). Mix the two ingredients and seasonings until you get a loose pancake batter. I fried the fish for 1-2 minutes on each side ... perfect

The Lil Chef tasted of it and actually liked it. I think I'll use this recipe for the fish and or chicken whenever I want something "beer battered".

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

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…
