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.

Raisin Cookies - Millet & Buckwheat

I was so hungry for a cracker/bread/cookie.  I haven't had any in a couple weeks.  I tried making wheat crackers and they bothered me.  I threw that out, and decided to try some cookies.

Raisin Cookies

Preheat oven 375
Beat:  2 eggs, 1/2 cup Spectrum palm shortening until smooth, 1 cup sugar (I use beet Pioneer beet sugar)
Beat in:  1/2 cup tapioca flour, 1 cup millet flour, 1 cup buckwheat flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
Mix in: 1 cup Newman's Own raisins (This is a guess, I didn't measure raisins)  Add more or less.
Drop tablespoon size balls onto a cooking sheet, (I have a cookie scoop thats like an ice scoop but smaller) bake 9 minutes.

Now I need to break down and make vanilla.  You could add 1 tsp of safe vanilla. 
My zucchini is ripening.  I want my next cookie to have shredded zucchini.
