I need some money!

I want this:

Because no one in my family has a gluten intolerance, I could use that to make gluten-free breads in the machine - it's got it's own gluten-free option - and then I could make regular bread for the rest of the family. I've been spending $4/bag at Whole Foods to get Olivia bread that doesn't have soy bean oil in it and it occurred to me that I could just make my own and it would be cheaper. I have a bread machine down in my basement, so until I can afford the one I really want, I can at least make bread for her school lunches.

Another thing I want but won't be able to get for quite a while is a GOOD food processor. Not a tiny one either...a large capacity one. I have the Magic Bullet, and I like it, but it doesn't do all that I want it to do and it's just not big enough.. I've thought about buying a Nut Grinder so that I can quickly and easily make cheesecake crust from almonds/pecans/walnuts instead of graham crackers, but I'd rather have one appliance that will do it all. Do you have any suggestions on a good food processor? I can't spend hundreds of dollars so I need to find one that is affordable.


  1. HI Jamie,
    While you're saving up for your gluten free bread machine consider making your own gluten free, yeast free no-knead bread.

    I have developed gluten free sourdough recipes around my own food allergies. I have combined old fashioned sourdough techniques with gluten free seed and grain flours and have come up with excellent, delicious breads, muffins and pancakes.

    They are also free of dairy, eggs, soy, yeast, sweeteners, gums and baking powder. Very suitable for sensitive digestions.

    I have posted a free download of the starter recipe plus pancake recipe:

    This type of baking takes some time to understand and master so it will not be for everyone. With planning it doesn't have to be time consuming. For people able to take the time it's well worth it as the breads are tasty, easy to digest and have an extremely long shelf life!

    My complete, and continually growing recipe book, Art of Gluten Free Sourdough Baking, is available in pdf and print form on my website,
    Good Luck and Eat Well!
