I would love a tried and true cheesy, yellow sauce to put over steamed brocolli. I did a quick check in the book and didn't see one. Maybe I missed it b/c it seemed like one was mentioned somewhere in there.
I ended up finding out something that turned out pretty well. 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/8 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups milk 1/3 cup cooking sherry 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Directions Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir in flour, paprika, mustard, pepper and salt. Pour in milk and sherry; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in Swiss and Cheddar cheeses. Cook, stirring constantly, until melted and well blended. I left out the flour and added 1/2 tsp glucomannan w/the milk. Instead of milk I used 1/2 cream, 1/2 almond milk and I left out the Sherry b/c I wasn't sure about it. It was really quite good. The original recipe was from Allrecipes.com
I'm not sure about the 1/4 C of flour- maybe you could omit that and add gluccie instead? You could add in some Laughing Cow or light cream cheese to get the creaminess if you want to omit the flour and not use gluccie.
There is also a cheese sauce recipe from the macafoni and cheese recipe in the book. The sauce you made, with the adjustments, seems tasty also. And yes, Serene's Transformer Cheese Sauce is so great. It's one of my favorites, especially with some Creole seasoning added.

steffanie3: Broth based soups are great for this time of year and a FC I did a modified "cabbage soup diet" soup with some boneless skinless chicken for protein, I just searched for an online recipe and left out some things if I remember right, I love cabbage

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl

glammom: Any suggestions as to where to purchase MCT oil? All new stuff to me. Purchase many items for plan on-line, some at Kroger, some at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Any suggestions of locations to purchase MCT oil at brick and mortar stores?

steffanie3: GNC would likely have MCT or a health food store that carries Now Brand, that is one easy to find kind.

ttate53787: I have been put on a low residue diet. I am only allowed to eat refined grains. In order to follow this plan now would I just have to give up all breads? Any guidance on this type of diet? Thanks.

steffanie3: I haven't heard of a low residue diet, maybe make a post of a suggested menu you have been given and we could help?

Bryony: After numerous attempts at baking with coconut flour my husband and I just do not like the taste but especially the texture of it. Is there something else I can use in the recipes to replace the coconut flour?
Dec 19, 2014 12:19:20 GMT -5
steffanie3: It depends on the recipe Bryony, is there a certain one you have in mind? Almond flour and oat fiber are used in many yummy baked goods.
Dec 19, 2014 15:07:27 GMT -5
Bryony: Basically all recipes Steffanie. I have so many I would like use. Are almond flour and oat flour and/or oat fiber interchangeable with coconut flour?
