    Template

    Thanks, guys. I guess I will use the tablespoon idea for the thumb measurement. I know about the others as they are pretty self explanatory. But the thumb just threw me. LOL!

    Template

    I'm not sure if this is the correct area to post this or not. I have looked at the meal template and most of it makes sense but I just can't wrap my mind around thumb size for fats. That just makes no sense to me. Is there another way to explain it? Thanks.

    Names for MSG

    Thanks, Shannon. That list I posted was helpful but really did make me overthink it. Thanks for the link, too.

    Names for MSG

    So if something says "gelatin" in the nutritional section but not the bottom with other ingredients like preservatives, it's okay? I see citric acid on the bottom list even though the book says we can have it.

    Names for MSG

    I found this article that has extensive alternate names for MSG near the bottom of the page. I copied it for when I go shopping and have to read ingredients now and then. Hope it helps. https://web.archive.org/web/20170922123341/http://www.freshideamama.com/msg-what-it-ishellip-where-it-is-foundhellip-how-to-avoid-it I also put it into an alphabetizing utility to make it easier. https://alphabetizer.flap.tv

    Rice flour, potato flakes as coatings or thickeners

    Tapioca flour goes slimy on me. Potato flour works like corn starch for me and makes perfect sauce or gravy. I wonder if it would make a good rue using ghee?

    Thanks, Shannon. Good to know. I will nix using the rice flour.
  9. I read in a post that potato starch is okay as a coating or thickener (even though it's not mentioned in any of the ok lists which include tapioca flour. How about rice flour or potato flakes that don't have any "baddies" in them?

    Believe it or not Shannon, I had already done this. Still not working. I keep the website open so I can hear when a notification comes in but never into my email for some strange reason.

    I am still not getting notifications by email. I typed that message earlier here but I don't see it so I am doing it again. I hopefully will get a response so I can see if it comes into my email. Thanks.
  13. Thanks. I needed that information. I will buy the red wine vinegar and not make it.
  14. Hi Laura: I wasn't planning on baking goodies. I was just wondering why the alcohol in vanilla was a no-no and the alcohol in red wine vinegar was okay. If that's true that the alcohol is eaten up by the fermentation process, then I guess home made red wine vinegar is out? It's just a mixture of vinegar and red wine. I wonder how long the fermentation process takes.
  15. I am a little confused. I thought that the alcohol in vanilla extract completely dissipated when heated like in baking something. Am I wrong? On the other hand red wine vinegar is allowed and may be in salad dressing and not cooked, but there is alcohol in it. I didn't think about the sulfites but read that some red wine vinegars have them. I was planning on making my own with red wine and vinegar but I don't know that the wine bottle admits to sulfites. Thanks for the help. Love it here.
