I know that I have quite a few flour blends on my blog (and in my cookbook!), but I've been working on a new one. They all work great, but I just can't leave well-enough alone! This blend includes sweet rice flour. My goal in adding this flour was to replace the xanthan gum that is usually required in gluten-free baking. Sweet rice flour is also called "glutinous rice flour" because of its sticky, gluten-like properties.

Pizza is one of my favorite foods and it's a necessity in my life. I do have a wonderful pizza crust in my cookbook. It's a yeast recipe (also egg-free) that takes a little more effort and time to make, so I wanted to share a really quick and easy way to make a low-FODMAP pizza crust.

I recently had the opportunity to peruse a wonderful new low-FODMAP cookbook from Julie at the Calm Belly Kitchen. Julie is a health coach for women with IBS. Believe me, as complicated and intricate as the low-FODMAP diet can be, some coaching and guidance is much-needed! In addition to the coaching, she is an experienced recipe developer and has some wonderful recipes on her blog.

This recipe was inspired by a recipe (click here) I came across in the local newspaper. It was made with traditional wheat couscous and a bunch of high-FODMAP ingredients, but I saw the potential for it to become a flavorful low-FODMAP dish. I got to work.

I meant to share this recipe weeks ago, but the summer has gotten away from me, thanks to a horrible head cold. Summer colds are the worst. All I've been able to do the past two weeks is nap and veg out on the couch with tissues and cough drops by my side. I managed to drag myself to work, but as soon as I got home, it was Sofa City. Luckily I had a Harry Potter marathon one weekend to help me pass the time. Movies I know by heart are the best as I drift in and out of a cold medicine-induced sleep. I don't miss anything since I've seen it a billion times before.
