This is the month for Trolls. They're hungry this time of year---please send
all trolls to Kate's Kitchen so she can make us a pot of Troll Stew. She's
pretty good at it.
You're welcome to bring side dishes.

Got the first post today saying we were KNITTERS. Even *I* know the diff
between using 2 needles compared to one with an eye and one with a hook.and
I'm not 'splaining what diff crafts I'm talking about.

TROLL STEW FOR DINNER...bring your scissors and rotary cutters.

I'm experimenting with a Troll & Cranberry festive meat loaf, and a
veggie nut roast version...  Both will also be GLUTEN FREE!

GLUTEN FREE TROLL anyone?

Oh, and gluten free TROLL CHOCOLATE COOKIES to hang on the tree next month.

Right now I need to finish a hat and cloak before Thursday evening, and
find a large hat box...

Working on it...  The lactose thing might be the fly in the ointment as
my cookie recipe has butter in.  I'll experiment.

Re: DEC Trolls
we eat ricebran oil spread in this house now.
ds is a vegan so he eats the dairy free "light" version.
both taste enough like butter and i used to eat light
margarine, ewwwwww.
great for baking too.
so if you can find "Light Rice Bran Oil Spread" give it a
try, you might like it.
its cholesterol free for those with cholesterol worrys.
it cost more but we dont mind if it tastes good and does the
job.
cheers,
jeanne

Whatcha need? I'm allergic to gluten, eggs, and milk (among others) -- I'll
be happy to share any recipes or substitution hints with you. How about
Troll House Cookies?

Re: Gluten-free troll recipes (was Re: DEC Trolls)
Super!
Main dishes are not the real problem -meat is OK, all veggies, and everybody
eats potatoes or rice. My chief worries are desserts (it's Christmas!) and
breakfast. We do not cook breakfast. Most Germans are used to eating bread,
rolls, and such with cheese, cold cuts, jam or whatever. Boiled eggs and
yoghurt on the side, but those we can do without. Finding special
ingredients here that are what you might be used to in the US could be an
issue! SIL has already said not to worry, she will bring a supply of fake
bread, but I would feel really happy to come up with something breakfasty
that they could eat.

Re: Gluten-free troll recipes (was Re: DEC Trolls)
I'll take a look for desert and breakfast in my recipes and report back.
Availability of gluten-free flours would be the only issue. (A quick gsearch
for "gluten free flour Germany" didn't come up with sources, but DID come up
with a lot of interesting recipes for gluten-free German chocolate cake!).
Here in the US we have a readily available baking mix that is my go-to GF
flour, but I'm sure you won't have access to that particular one. Next time
you're at the grocery store, would you take a quick look for any GF flours?
Or can your SIL tell you what's available? We can work from there. :)

Re: Gluten-free troll recipes (was Re: DEC Trolls)
Kathy: I am totally clueless about gluten free diets.
Would it be okay to include bread made with 'flour'
that is actually pulverized oatmeal in a gf diet? I
have cook booklet from Quaker Oats that has such recipes.

Re: Gluten-free troll recipes (was Re: DEC Trolls)
There is a little bit of controversy on whether or not oats cause reactions
in people with gluten problems. Most of the research, and my own personal
experience, says oats aren't safe for a GF diet.

Hugs!!

You're just the only one who hasn't heard the story but had the guts to ask!
:)

It all started several years ago, when a group of us foolishly were trying
to use more fabric than we purchased. Given that my fabric was overflowing
the space I had, it seemed like a good idea at the time. (I've since come to
the realization that it just means I need to make more room for fabric.
*grin*).

We were reporting our progress, and when it came to be my turn I said that I
had been oh, so very good, except for a couple of wild out-of-town flings
where I just couldn't control myself. One of the others (I think it was
Merry) said that made me a fabric tramp, and the name stuck. :)

Oh! I love it!! Too funny!!

FWIW, "Queen of the Fabric Tramps" sounds so decadent and worldly ... very
fashionable!! :) In that sense, the name fits you! :)

Hugs!!

My pal Julie would say the same.  Wheat, barley, rye and oats should all
be eschewed, as should spelt, though it has less gluten than modern wheat.
