Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

Yes you can make bread in 1 hour

It's difficult to find bread without corn.  It's easy to make your own.  Bread makers are about $40, and they now have a 1 hour setting!  Recipe:  Make sure the blade is in the bottom of the pan.  Add: 1 cup warm water, 2 Tablespoons Sugar, 2 Tablespoons oil, 2 Tablespoons water, 1 teaspoon salt, 3 cups King Arthur unbleached flour, make a dip in the flour and add 2 packs of red star yeast.  Put in bread maker and select the 1 hour 1.5 lb loaf setting.  Take out of the maker when it's done.  Shake the loaf out of the pan to cool.  You don't have to get the beating paddle out of the bread right away.  If it's late sometime I put the loaf in the oven to cool and get it out in the morning.  Problems:  If it sinks in the middle: too wet - reduce the water or better pack your flour in the measuring cup.  If the bread doesn't seem to be rounded on top add a couple tablespoons water.
The bread slices better if it's refrigerated.  I slice in half top to bottom across the long side of the loaf.  Then lay the cut side down and cut into slices.  If you cut half the loaf at a time it's easier to use, but it tends to dry the bread out faster.  Keep in a zip lock in the refrigerator for 3 - 4 days.  You can also freeze it.  Toast the bread it stays together better.  Cook yourself a chicken breast or steak.  Slice and you have a sandwich.  Fried egg, cheese, meatloaf and what ever you can think of.
