Gluten Free Cast Iron Cornbread!


Recently my family has started to go gluten free....problem is in my small town not much is available on the store shelves. I had a box of cornbread in my closet only to find out it was not gluten free! Luckily after much searching I was able to find a recipe I could alter enough to suit my tastes.lol


Gluten Free Cast Iron Cornbread
3/4 Cup rice flour
1 Cup cornmeal
2 to 3 Tablespoons of sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon butter
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt) together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Melt the one tablespoon of butter in a 10 inch cast-iron skillet(you can use smaller for thicker cornbread)
  4. Swirl the butter around the pan coating the bottom and sides.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and 1/4 cup butter.
  6. Add this mixture all at once to the flour mixture and stir.
  7. Pour batter into the hot skillet or baking pan. 
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm.

Gluten Free is wonderful! Isn't it crazy that cornbread isn't gluten free? I would expect it to be..years ago when my mom was diagnosed with celiac (back before everyone seemed to have it) we had a really hard time finding gluten free foods for her, she mostly ate salad and protein, but now, even Domino's has gluten free pizza!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
