Too Many Chefs post of the week

Landing gear down... parachute deployed... front gear down... and Posts of the Week is home!

1. As one who lives with food restrictions, both voluntary (pseudo-vegetarianism) and involuntary (anaphalaxis from crustaceans), I'm sympathetic to those who are forced to eat a restricted diet. I'm encouraged by those who take the restriction and make it an opportunity to eat better food like the Gluten-free girl has. She discusses craving now forbidden foods in this post on cream of rice in the morning.

I. Hot chocolate in the summer? Well I suppose if you think Dessert Comes First, it's a small leap. Actually it's Tsokolate, a thick Filipino chocolate drink made with cocoa disks called tablea and it looks delicious.

A. I hope you don't have to be a millionaire to properly appreciate these Millionaire's Shortbreads from English Patis. If you can't find the dulce de leche called for in the recipe, and are brave and agree not to hold anyone responsible for any mishaps that may occur, you could try this recipefor dulce de leche from an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk.

Next time, we Shuttle you off to more great sites for a new batch of Posts of the Week!

Hey! I've been reading this blog for weeks, loving it all. In fact, I was just trying to figure out how to adapt that peach-blueberry cake to gluten-free. When I came back to check it out again, I found my blog listed! Whoopee!

Thanks so much. This means a lot to me. I'm keeping the blog because I'm wonderfully, over-the-heels in love with food. Finding out I can't eat gluten because of celiac disease has been a blessing. Just this morning, I made homemade corn tortillas for the first time. Yum. And also, I had no idea how much I love taking photographs of food. Oh, everything is better now.

Apparently, 1 out of 133 Americans have celiac disease too. So on their behalf, I really appreciate you linking to my blog!

Shauna - it's a pleasure! You've got a nice site going and I wish you luck with it and your struggle with celiac disease.

I know my diet became much more diverse and interesting when I went vegetarian. Sometimes you really can add via subtraction.
