Things are finally returning to normal in our house. Mr. Naughty’s arm is healing nicely and he’s in a
removable splint. I can tell he’s feeling much better since all he wants to do is run and climb. Another fun stage has just started… tantrums!
Really, you should come over and see the show. The all out wailing and lying on the floor. If I’m lucky, I also get to see him on the hard wood floor, lying face down with one arm up and legs spread (think a crime scene pose). Yes, he’s feeling much better.
I miss crackers. I think I may miss them more than bread (it’s probably a tie). When I grew up, I always had crackers on hand for an easy snack to grab. I practically lived on them in college.
A good gluten free cracker is hard to find. A good gluten free cracker free of egg, soy, tree nuts, sunflower, cotton seed, sesame seed and poppy seed is even harder. Or near impossible, since I haven’t found one yet. 🙁
My allergy motto (and yours too I imagine) is: If you can’t find it… make it. I used to love cheddar crackers so this was great for me too. You have to try these, crackers they. are. awesome.
You can just hand mix the shortening to create crumbs and gradually add the milk until it forms a dough. I rolled them out and cut 2 inch crackers from biscuit cutters. If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, you can cut them into squares with pizza cutter. Carefully transfer crackers to a baking sheet and bake until golden brown along the edges.
I hope you love the cheese as much as I do.
