What brand of jarred sun dried tomatoes are nut free? It seems many have been processed with pine nuts or other nuts. Thanks!
11/6/13 7:52 AM
I have ones that are just dried tomatoes "Bella Sun Luc"i- Nut free sun dried tomatoes were really hard to find, no matter the form. I found that one brand, but never called to confirm if they are around nuts. there are no warnings on the package, and...

What about a gf corn free soy sauce?

If coconut is safe, there is coconut aminos. Otherwise, I've had good success using umeboshi vinegar. It doesn't have the same depth of flavor (or color - it's purple which can be an odd color in some things), but give that salty "bite" to...

That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to...

Comment by MAM-mom
Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what...

I do have a heating core, but I've found that allergen friendly cakes don't always bake well in larger sizes. This is especially true of egg free cakes since they lack key structure. If you can get it baked through, the chance of cracking...

Great post. I have a question about baking larger sheet cakes. Do you use a metal core (I can't remember if that is the "real" name for that, or not) when you bake them? I usually make a half sheet for birtday parties and find it is...

Take note: Although coconut is considered a "tree nut" by the Food and Drug Administration, studies have shown that coconut is not related to "tree nut allergy". Although it is possible to be allergic to coconut, most patients with tree nut allergy...

From the Qrunch facebook page (5/10/2012): The new four-pack boxes are on the shelves at Whole Foods Markets in Rocky Mountain. And introducing our new flavor, Spicy Italian!

I really hope these become available in more areas, or at very least for online shopping! I really don't care for soy or mushroom based fake meats, plus most aren't gluten free anyway, so I am really excited about this!

On their Facebook wall, there is mention that they are going to New York next.

And the taste test results are in! Both kids (2.5 and 5.5 yo) said "yummy!" then asked for seconds and asked that I put Qrunch on the shopping list. My review - nice crunchy exterior, overall good texture & liked the flavor. Views and reviews...

I wonder if you could replace the sugar with a sugar substitute like Stevia granules and it still work?

Do you think this could be made substituting rice flour with potato flour? Lisa
7/19/12 5:30 PM
Comment by MAM-mom
I don't know that it would work. Rice flour is super-fine ground rice--think of rice that has gone through a grinder--and it has the properties of rice, so it will absorb water like rice does when you cook it. Potato flour is form potatoes...
7/19/12 6:01 PM
I think you will wind up w/ a big lump of glue if you try using potato flour. I'm assuming you really mean potato flour and not potato starch (which I don't think would work either). Potato flour is more like dehydrated potatoes and is...
7/19/12 6:28 PM
THat is what I was afraid of. I worked with rice in our last trial, so I KWIM. I also have found that potato treat the same tends to be a lump. Unfortunately, no, we don't have anything else for flour. HOwever, I have found that when things go ary, DS...

GL! Do you have any safe powdered sugar?? You can make potato candy. Not sure what you have to spread on it (the typical is PB).
