Gluten Free cloud bread!


This is actually from pinterest But I love it and wanted to share. There are so many people trying to cut down on the gluten or that just simply can’t have it. So I wanted to share this recipe. You can find it at www.food.com under carb free cloud bread.  The recipe was posted by Gillian Spence.

3- Eggs, seperated

3- Tablespoons whole milk cottage cheese or 3 tablespoons cream cheese ( I prefer organic )

1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter

1 packet artificial sweetener. ( I prefer truvia, which is natural but will still give you that sweet taste)

Cooking-

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Seperate the eggs very carefully. You cannot have yolk in the whites or it wont come out right. In one bowl mix the egg yolks, the 3T of cottage cheese, and the one packet sweetener until smooth. In other bowel add cream of tarter to the egg whites and beat on high speen until they are fluffy and form nice peaks. Very cafefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites until mixed.  Try not to break down the fluffiness of the egg whites too much. Spray two cookie sheets with Pam or put olive oil on a paper towel and wipe down cookie sheets. With large sppon scoop the mixture into 10 even rounds on the sheets. they should be about the size of hamburger buns. Bake on the middle rack. Make sure to watch them because baking time may not be the same on every batch. It is somewhere around 1/2 hour, but could be more or less. You need them a nice golden brown. Remove form oven. place cloud breads on cooling rack or cutting board until. Once cool store in container over night. The next day they will be like a nice soft bread!

 

I hope this recipe helps out my gluten free buddies! Also here is my favorite peanut butter gluten free cookie!!

 

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

 

Mix all together and bake on greesed cookie sheet or 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. I will alos buy gluten free chocolate and melt it and dip the cookies in the choclate. I then let the cookies cool and that will also allow chocolate to harden back up!! They taste great and are so easy to make!!

 

Homemade laundry soap!


Yes I know there are tons of recipes out there but thought I would share one of my favorites! I have been using this mixture for years. I tried doing the liquid and realized I wanted something easier. So this is the recipe I use for a dry detergent.

 

1- Box of Borox

1- Box of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda (not the same as baking soda. You can find this in laundry aisle)

1- 4 lb Box of Arm and Hammer Baking soda.

2- Bars Fels-Naptha soap shredded in food processor

 

I mix all ingredients together. Make sure soap is ground into very fine pieces. I use 2 table spoons for every load.

 

Update: After I wrote this I was looking up recipes online to see if there was an even easier way to make laundry soap (lol) and came across this website. Please check it out! I also love that she puts it in a nice glass jar to store it!!!
