I like her blog. I don't read it often but I love her attitude about eating and cooking gluten free. Her recipes are good too.

This is another blogger that I really like http://glutenfree.wordpress.com/ I find that her recipes really suite my tastes. I make her flat breads and granola bars often.

yes...I like this woman's site too. Frankly, when I found out I was gluten intolerant I was both happy and sad! Happy that I had finally discovered why I had felt bad for so long....and sad because I thought I'd be limited in what I would be able to cook, bake and eat. What I have found is just the opposite.....what I'm finding are challenges to be sure, but incredible discoveries about food that I hadn't known. Now I'm excited! I've decided that creating and baking good chewy crusty gluten-free artisan bread is my first priority. Even though I've never been an avid bread person really....I'm viserally aware that other people who are gluten intolerant really miss bread a great deal, and I'd like to develope a reliable technique.

If you develop THE technique, please let me know.  I'm trying to follow a gluten free diet, and haven't had much success with the bread, so far.

This french bread recipe is pretty good. It doesn't keep, just like regular french bread. I think you might like this one.

GLUTEN FREE FRENCH BREAD

2 tablespoons active dry yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/4 cups warm water (about 110 degrees)

3/4 cup sorghum flour

1 3/4 cups potato starch

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 teaspoon guar gum

1/4 cup powdered milk

1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons salt

1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

4 large egg whites, at room temperature

Line a two-baguette French bread pan with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and water and stir until dissolved. Set aside for 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the flour, potato starch, xanthan gum, guar gum, powdered milk, salt, butter, cider, 3 of the egg whites and the yeast mixture.

Beat on low to blend. Once blended, beat on high speed for 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. The dough will be soft. Transfer half of the dough to each side of the prepared pan.

Use a wet spatula to smooth each into a 12-inch loaf.

Lightly beat the remaining egg white, them use a pastry brush to lightly coat the top of the loaves. Use a knife to cut 3 diagonal slashes (about 1/8 inch deep) across each loaf.

Place the pan on the middle rack of a cold oven. Set the oven to 425 degrees and bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until nicely browned. Remove the bread from the pans and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing. Makes 2 loaves.

I finally find Xanthan Gum, now you want me to find Guar Gum, too?  LOL.  I actually think I have most of the other stuff, so will have to try this one.  Thanks.

You can just double the xanthan gum for this recipe, and omit the guar gum.
