Never heard of it. I don't like eggs cooked that way, but the stuff under the eggs sounds ok.

Reactions & Stories / Re: ANA Reaction Abroad ... Surviving MY Unthinkable!
« Last post by ctmartin on July 22, 2018, 03:09:22 PM »

Hi, Everyone ... I just wanted to thank you all for your kindness and support.  To all those who responded to my post, and even to those who did not respond but simply took the time to read about our experience ... I appreciate you!  This has always been my "Go-To" spot when I need answers, or even simply to vent.  I try to give support and feedback of my own when I can, and I hope that I have helped at least some of you.

Anyway ... we are in full recovery mode, and I feel it's going pretty well.  We still haven't eaten out yet, but I'm sure that time will come.  Until then, things are slowly returning to normal.  HOWEVER ... I feel there is one more step to my recovery, and I am not sure whether it is worth the effort or not.

I would like to write an honest review ... obviously not of the food from the restaurant, which we did not even get to enjoy anyway ... but of their attitude toward food allergies (obviously they are not very educated and/or as careful as they purport to be).  That's the thing ... given that the owner has STILL failed to respond, I have no idea really what happened or how it happened ... I only know that my daughter had an ANA reaction to sesame in the bread, which is what he has reluctantly admitted.

I have done some research on-line at tripadvisor and other sights and have seen other such reviews ... I feel like I owe it to the food allergy community, but I do not want it to come off as vindictive, even though that is what I am sure it is going to seem like to him.  That is why my daughter does not want me to write anything ... she who looked at me with pleading eyes trying to talk me out of even TELLING him what had happened as it was happening ... AS IF! ... for fear of ruining my friendship with him.

So, I wonder ... would it be enough of a benefit for the food allergy community for me to write a review of warning, or would people just see all of the great reviews (of which he has plenty, which is what would make writing this so hard), and disregard my warning.  What do you all think?

Thanks for being here for us ;)
Recipes & Cooking / Re: Nut Free, Dairy Free and Gluten Free cake recipe needed
« Last post by hezzier on July 21, 2018, 09:45:44 PM »
Everyone thought the cake and glaze were great.  My neighbor wants the recipe so I will email it to her.  I ended up using King Arthur All Purpose GF flour.  It turned out very moist so I do think it could have cooked a little longer and I would guess that it will not be great leftover tomorrow which is just fine since we still have DS's nut free bakery cake in the fridge too.  I brought coconut cool whip and regular cool whip to go on top.  You could totally skip the glaze and serve this cake with fresh fruit and whipped cream/ice cream/cool whip, etc.
I am always wary of all purpose gluten-free flours, because they vary so much and are super finicky, per my experience.  Sometimes they work, something they're a total disaster depending on the recipe.  Which flour mix did you end up using for that recipe? 
Traveling & Restaurants / Re: Toronto

Don't forget about the new Hype Food Co!!!! 

Our kitchen is free from gluten and top allergens including peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, milk, eggs, soy, sesame and seafood.
  They DO use coconut, though -- it is NOT a tree nut in Canada.

The Keg is a nation-wide chain with a good reputation for accommodating allergies and special diets.

Another one: Goodbye Gluten Bakery:

Allergy Bites has some good restaurant reviews of Toronto area restaurants, and some discount cards:

Some fun items you can have shipped to your hotel or find a various grocery stores (some may use coconut, I have no idea since it's not a nut here):
- Libre Naturals - (they ship to America too, coconut-free)
- Freeyumm granola bars, cookies:
- Three Farmers roasted chickpeas:
- Made Good granola bars, granola, chocolate chips:
- Screamin Brothers frozen dessert (coconut base):
- Lotus Foods rice ramen noodles (just the noodles, not the flavour packets):

I finally made this dish!  I've been wanting to for a decade or so!

I think I had too many peppers - or maybe just slice thinner - I uded a red bell, red jalepeno and a pablano - w/one can 28 oz whole tomatoes...

and I was little heavy handed with the paprika and cumin
or my tomatoes just weren't that bright.....

does anyone add an acid?  splash of vinegar? lemon?

served with a sourdough baugette

It was great!   Very satisfying

Do you make it?  Tell me your version.
