Living in a ski town means that the holiday week is far from a vacation... I am on day 11 straight and am not sure when I can break that streak. And by 11 days I don't mean ski days in a row... that's work days in a row. Thankfully I got ready for the holidays early and began mixing my flour blends before the madness hit.

Good thing too because I'm really messy at flour blending....

Lately I've been keeping Artisanal Flour Blend in addition to the Featherlight. I like both for different things. The artisanal makes a great pizza dough and the featherlight is great for crepes. 

I had picked up Artisanal Gluten Free Cooking and I have to say that I really liked their pizza recipe... ok they have a few but so far I've enjoyed just one.

my gluten free, dairy free, pinapple and peperoni pizza
Did I mention that? I gave up dairy for the holidays and am feeling good. The breakout on my chin as also disappeared. I had some small amounts earlier this week and it is thinking about returning. It was a lot easier to give up gluten then dairy. It once again changed my eating habits. I've been subbing in almond and soy milk. I can't have a lot of soy milk but it's great for baking.

I also tried my hand at a frosting... it was pretty good all things considered! Thanks to Marlow for the idea and to my nautral food store for having "fake people" cream cheese!
Plus here's a few shots of the donuts we made... and need to make again... these were from
The Gluten Free Gourmet as was the frosting.
I think the poor kitchenaid is going to take issue as we got an immersion blender and I'm hoping to use that when I make my next foray into the kitchen again... someday soon when the holidaze are over....
plus I got the 1,000 Gluten Free Recipes and that's a lot to go through....
Happy Gluten Free and Mostly Dairy Free 2010!
