Since going gluten-free and dairy-free two months ago, I've managed to go from using the mixes to create brownies and bread to making my own cakes and breads. I've figured out easy dinner ideas, amassed a rather terrifying shelf full of ingredients, and am currently looking for a mini-freezer.

(I figure I have at least two days before class starts after I get back to campus; if I use one day to set up my room, I can use the other to freeze food for the first couple weeks.)

I've made cookies that are absolutely fantastic. (Original recipe's from the glutenfreegirl's blog.)

1 cup peanut butter, one cup sugar, an egg, and a teaspoon of baking powder. Cream the sugar and peanut butter together (by hand; do not ask me why it has to be by hand, but it *works*) and then mix in the rest of the ingredients and bake for ten minutes at 350. Then let cool for five to ten minutes. My next batch is going to include Mexican chocolate swirled in and agave instead of sugar.

I have found ice cream that I actually really love and chocolate that doesn't set of killer migraines.

Now, I'm trying to figure out other things: for instance, my family used to have a tradition--on holidays, my grandmother made pecan buns that were to die for. My mother made really good cinnamon buns when she wanted to. And god damn, I have a craving! The only question for me is how in the world I'm going to achieve decent results.

Anyone have any suggestions or tips?  Either on how to make a gf-df cinnamon/sticky bun or how to create fried green tomatoes when your father's breading makes you ill? (Or fried chicken?)

Or hell, even quick recipes ya'll use on occasion?

I use brown rice flour for breading. It doesn't hold together quite as well, but it's very yummy.
