But, things happen and in my case I baked out of a little bit of desperation. I'm having a lot of stomach problems as well as a return on headaches, just plain tiredness, etc. It finally occurred to me that it could literally be the food I eat. I mean who thinks they're intolerant to certain things if they've gone their whole life not thinking that? Well, I'm still researching, but I started by going dairy free (taking a challenge, which is still in the rough start phase). Do you know how many things have diary in them? Even my bread had dairy. This weekend's grocery store trip I got more substitute items (for lack of a better phrase) to better go dairy free (I'll also be following up with a doctor).
So, back to the baking. This weekend I tried two new recipes - diary free and gluten free - from the cookbook, Cooking for Isaiah by Silvana Nardone. Awesome.
The other recipe I baked today. Cornbread. I hadn't planned on it, but I've been eating sandwiches at work and the author has a recipe that uses cornbread as the sandwich bread. What a cool idea. This cornbread is awesome! It will be around my house even if it's not the food causing my problems. I didn't do the sandwich she had in the cookbook, but I did an egg sandwich (with a small amount of dairy free cheese that was quite tasty). Truly, this cornbread is some of the best I've made.
I'm looking forward to trying other recipes from this cookbook.
