    For me, it's phyllo/filo dough. There is a gf recipe for it in a cookbook I have but I've never tried it.

    And the book is in storage right now so I can't even post it for you at this time.

    But I miss having things like spanikopita.

    For me it's not a specific food, but the convenience of being able to eat things like a hamburger from a fast food place when you're rushed for time.

    I totally relate. The inconvenience. Travelling is hard, too, especially when travelling long distances.

    What do you do in those instances?

    Maybe we should start a "Convenience and Travel Food" thread for this, since this is probably a challenge for many. icon_wink.gif

    The food I miss the most is definitely pasta.
    Don't get me wrong, I do have pasta sometimes, but I basically have two choices;

    1- store-bought dried GF pasta that tastes nothing like real pasta or,
    2- Made from scratch pasta that, while very good, takes all day just to make it.

    So, I rarely eat pasta anymore. When I do make it from scratch, I make a large batch and freeze what I can in single-serving sized batches so I can just drop it in boiling water.

    I've tried almost all of the commercial brands; the rice, the corn, the quinoa, etc. I really don't care for any of them, but when I have to choose one I go for the Tinkyada.


    I also miss flour tortillas. If anyone has a recipe for really good GF flour tortillas I'd love to see it! I made the mistake early on of buying spelt tortillas. They are really good- but they also aren't gluten free! icon_redface.gif

    I agree, CC, Tinkyada is one of the better ones. My favorite so far is Westbrae Natural Corn Angel Hair Pasta. Notta Pasta gets rave reviews from other sites I've been on. There are two brands of lasagna noodles that work well for me, too. One is "Schar" and the other one I'm drawing a blank on at the moment.

    I will soon post the GF flour tortilla recipes I have. I haven't tried them because I just use corn tortillas. But the recipes I have are from good sources. Do you buy GF products on-line? One of the recipes I have calls for Gluten-Free Pantry brand something, something Bread Mix. I can't remember what it's called off-hand. That recipe, in particular, comes from Glutenfreeda.

    Homemade gf pasta, yep, takes all day and also gives you quite a workout. LOL

    Oh, the GF blooper moments....they happen to all of us. icon_rolleyes.gif icon_lol.gif

    I realize I sound like a broken record, but the reason I originally bought the cookbook Cooking Gluten-Free by Karen Robertson is because people told me it was the best GF flour tortilla (I'm from Texas and REALLY miss my tortillas!).

    These tortillas are the best I've found so far. They aren't as good as fresh, warm, gluten-filled tortillas that you get in a Mexican restaurant, but they definitely fit the bill of something to wrap around a beef fajita. icon_smile.gif

    The best part about that book is the gluten free flour mix she uses to make the tortillas. I make that up in large quantities now and keep it in my refrigerator and use it just as I would regular flour. It even has a little xanthan gum in it, so for things like pancakes, you don't need to add any extra.

    What I'd like to do is find a really good regular flour tortilla recipe and try it with her GF flour mix. Did anyone have a good recipe for tortillas before going GF?

    Not me. We didn't really eat Mexican at home before going GF. And now, when we do, we use corn tortilla's. Anyone else?

    Hi There,
    Saw your topic on what foods do I miss the most.
    I find the corn tortillas taste really awful. Can't use flour but I was wondering if anyone had a good corn tortilla that they use that does not break?

    Hi Valerie,

    I just got back home, literally an hour ago, from a week long trip out of town. But, I wanted to welcome you, and let you know that I am going to research this. I am interested in this also. icon_smile.gif After being away for seven days, I'm eager to get back into my kitchen and this sounds like a good project to start back with. icon_wink.gif

    The trick to corn tortillas is to warm them up. I put them on a very hot griddle (dry, without any oil) for about 5 seconds on each side. This makes them soft and pliable and improves their flavor as well.

    Oh ya, and welcome back Ginny!

    Thanks, I will try that. Someone suggested I make my own. I will try my hand at that as well.

    I miss going to a Chinese restaurant and eating anything I like from the buffet. I do lots of G/F Chinese cooking at home to which I think, to a pretty good standard. But you cant beat relaxing and enjoying someones else's cooking with no washing up!!!!

    I also miss fresh baked bresd with a can of Heinz chicken soup!!! I have baked my own G/F bread, although acceptable it is not the same as a 'proper' fresh loaf.

    Hi there everyone, thought I'd join in this topic too - I miss the convenience of a panini, filled roll etc. I have tried some of the tortilla recipes off zaar but they just didn't do it for me. I am awaiting an order of Masa Harina flour from the South Island (I'm in New Zealand) which is a corn based flour that they apparently use for making tortillas. I am so desperately seeking something for my kids lunches that I can make to wrap things up in.
    If anybody has experience making tortillas out of this flour I would appreciate any tips. The only premade tortillas you can buy in NZ are made with wheatflour. Do you have to have a flat plate to cook them on or can I use a frying pan.?

    For other desperate mum's reading this, I discovered these the other day, substituting a GF flour, which I made up and put in my kids lunch box. They were very happy. I also added a small tin of salmon for extra protein. #153771 Rice Pancakes, Thailand Style by SAHMchef.

    Cheers
