Test Cooks

Each month we have some wonderful volunteers who “test” out the menu prior to publication. They do an amazing job of helping to eliminate confusion and mistakes. They may not catch everything but they sure do catch A LOT! Here is a little bit about this month’s test cooks:

  • Joslyn Hibma – I am a former Spanish teacher who is now a busy homeschooling mom and wife of a very busy farmer.  We have two celiacs in our family, so label reading is a part of life.  As we have both celiacs, and non-celiacs in our family it was a challenge in the beginning to create meals that would be pleasing for all and not taste like “sawdust”! I have been preparing freezer meals for the past 13 years, and this is what helps keep our home running smoothly and organized.

  1. Thank you so much for including my Turkey Shepherd’s Pie with Cauliflower Mash Recipe! I’m enjoying browsing your site, keep up the great work.

  2. There seems to be a discrepancy in the turkey stroganoff recipe card. There is no milk or milk substitute in the ingredient list. Just wanted to let you know! ;-)

      Oops! W will get that changed as soon as I can. The amount of gluten and dairy free milk substitute should be 2 cups for the 1 in the yellow box… Hope that helps until the card reflects that. Thanks for letting me know!

      • Brandicj says:

        The milk substitute was still not in the turkey stroganoff recipe card (or grocery list?) when I downloaded the files today.

  3. Jamie says:

    Can I substitute gluten free all purpose flour for the alternatives used in the recipe or do you think that will drastically change the taste?

    • angela says:

      You could try to replace for the entire amount of the starches/flours in the recipe. If it has xanthan gum in it already, do not add more. The big thing to watch for is how moist or dry the doughs are with the substitution as these are developed with a different balance of starches and gluten free flours, so that might be a problem. I would make a very small test batch to see if the recipe works with the different flour blend before making a big amount for a cooking day. As far as taste, some gluten free flour blends have different taste profiles than others depending on ingredients, so that will depend on what type of all purpose flour blend you are using.
