I need some help! I have a grandson that is allergic to wheat and dairy. I have never had to cook without these things and I am so completely and utterly lost. I tried to make bread the other day and it came out of the oven like a hot rock. I made cookies and they were little pebbles. I think if I throw those in the back yard I can have a rock garden started. Horrible! I have been doing some research on different gluten free flours. I have seen that some are for making bread and some are for making baked goods like pies and cookies, etc. I have no idea what happened to my bread and cookies the other day but they were horrible.
I am normally a good baker and cook (or so I am told by my family) I use a lot of dairy and wheat in my baking and cooking. Obviously I can't do that now. I almost feel like we are eating vegetarian, LOL. These things were a staple in our diet and now I have to change things. I definitely cannot cook differently for just this little guy. My family is too large (a total of 9 of us in the house, yes the kids are taking over) So I have to learn how to incorporate what he can have into our meals.
I need loads of advice, recipes, and help, help, help! Please anyone!
