How cute is my hubby.聽 I get up this morning and in my emails I have the usual emails and one from him that is of course “No Subject” because that takes time and he is busy… and inside is a simple line… so I get on the intercom to make sure that he has not been hacked and ask if he has really sent me the email and he tells me yes it is for your cooking blog since you like to make all the Ukrainian and Russian food, I found that this morning and thought you would love it for your blog.

This gal and her mom have had a busy time adding a lot of recipes so hope that you enjoy them.

Corn Allergy List And Precautions


I have one in the glove compartment of car and one in my purse

Does not just come in this form sadly enough 馃槮

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corn_allergy聽

Corn/Maize allergy is a type of food allergy. It can be a difficult allergy to manage, particularly in the United States, due to the high number of food products which contain various forms of corn, such as corn starch, citric acid, modified food starch, vinegar, and vanilla, among many others. [1] However, it is an allergy that often goes unrecognized.[2]

Foods to Avoid

Completely eliminating corn and corn products from the diet may be a challenge. Reading label ingredients and educating yourself with common corn ingredients is the best way to follow a corn-restricted diet. Avoid foods with ingredients including corn, corn meal, high fructose corn syrup, vegetable starch, maize, gum and baking powder, notes the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters. Seek a registered dietitian for a complete list of common food ingredients with corn. These ingredients are typically found in a variety of cereals, syrups, baked goods, infant formulas and sodas. Avoid canned fruits and vegetables that contain sauces or syrups, notes the CHKD. Luncheon meats, processed cheese products, canned soups and processed breads and starches also contain many corn ingredients.

Corn Allergen List

The lists of corn products, ingredients and additives that I provide are not intended to be exhaustive, for that would be impossible to compile. There are many additives that are derived from corn that we do not know about, and often the employees of food companies do not know either. Plus, corn derivatives can be found in everything from body powder to shampoo (I’ve reacted to both)! The FDA, at this time, does not regulate corn to the extent that it does, say, peanuts, so we corn allergy sufferers are truly on our own. (Click here for a printable List in a separate browser window.)

PLEASE NOTE: In addition to the items on this list not including everything that contains corn, not everything on this list will contain corn. It is that they can contain corn, and therefore may need to be outright avoided or used cautiously. Read more about this on the Corn Allergens as Ingredients page. The items identified with an asterisk * are the most common items that might not always contain or be derived from corn. Proceed with caution!

Ten Basic Steps for Corn Allergy Newbies

Corn AllergensIf you or your child have recently been diagnosed with a corn allergy or intolerance, or you suspect one, here are ten basic steps to follow:

  1. Begin by eliminating ALL of the foods/products that contain corn from your home. This sounds easier than it will be, so be patient until you get the hang of it.
  2. Get into the habit of reading labels on all foods as you buy them and again before you eat it. Print The List and carry it with you always.
  3. Keep a diary of everything you eat and of every symptom (and intensity) you experience.
  4. Find a store to shop at, such as one that sells organic foods (and remember–organic does not mean corn-free). Fill your pantry with safe foods; don’t try to keep two kinds of food in the house. That is a reaction waiting to happen!
  5. Brainstorm with the family and write up a list of your child鈥檚 or your favorite foods that CAN be eaten for each meal and for snacks. There are few things worse (especially for children) than being hungry all the time and not having anything to eat.
  6. Research the allergy more (this is just the beginning) and find a supportive community such as the Delphi Forum for Avoiding Corn. The psychological aspects of the restricted diet are far-reaching and never-ending.
  7. See a doctor for medication (but check the ingredients!) to help with the reactions; i.e., medicated creams for rashes, inhalers for asthma, or pain relievers for migraines.
  8. If you have the allergy, get a medic alert bracelet. Glucose and dextrose are found in IV solutions, and hospital personnel should be aware of your allergy in case you are not in a position to speak.
  9. Corn AllergensNever let anyone prepare food for you unless you really, really trust that person (and they have The List), and even then, double and triple check. Too many (well-intentioned) people have cooked for me, and I have had more reactions and illnesses from this than I care to think about. I get sick and they feel horrible.
  10. Keep your sense of humor and be flexible. For sure, your lifestyle will change, so adaptations are in order. Not everyone in your extended family (mostly in-laws LOL) is going to get it and you will (trust me) be questioned about this.

Over time, you will see a pattern emerge that will help you confirm if you do have an allergy/intolerance. Also, a diary will help immensely for those times you have a reaction and need to research the cause. It will also help you document the facts to your doctor, who, if you are going on suspicion, may not quite believe you!

Now that I have bombarded you with data galore… my advice to you.聽 Eat at home and cook from scratch as much as possible.聽 I use rice flour and rice starch when cooking.聽 I love the Passover Holiday and stock up on the non perishable items that I can get my hands on as I know that they are Kosher for Passover which means that they are corn free.

Become aware of the symbol of Kosher for Passover, which is different than just Kosher year round…being Kosher for Passover is totally corn free.

See the P that is with the U in the Circle…that makes it for Passover…

An 鈥極U-P鈥 indicates
The product is Pareve and Kosher for Passover as well as for year-around.

An OU-D-P indicates
Product is dairy and Kosher for Passover as well as for all year round.

An OU-M-P or an OU-Glatt-P indicates
Product is meat and Kosher for Passover as well as for all year round.

An OU-F-P indicates
Product contains Fish and Kosher for Passover as well as for all year round

Best of Luck to you…It took me years to be diagnosed properly…Nervous stomach, start of an ulcer, goodness knows what other diagnosis I had prior…

It is not fun…I will say that when we are invited out to eat at someone’s home, I know that this sounds rude, however, I always let the hostess know of my allergy and that I am bringing a dish also for dinner that I know that I can eat.

Chicken Thighs with Spinach in White Wine


This is what I ended up making in exchange for what I started out with thanks to a few reblog ideas …

Yes I showed you the end before the beginning lol…

I also did make the bowties and cherry tomatoes in olive oil and chicken broth with a few spices and garlic then a bit of sprinkled cheese on top as garnish…

Now to begin:

Cherry Tomatoes

I walk outside and pick mine…

I did add a few other tomatoes from our other flower pots only because they were ready

As you can tell the weather here has done a number on this poor baby but it is still bearing…

Italian Parsley a few pinches in the chicken…

Italian Basil just a hint with the bowties and cherry tomatoes…

I use a smaller jar near cooking area and just transfer when empty… this went into both pans to start

So did this and yes I am lazy…This is actually more economical…

I added the chicken thighs that were boneless and I had tried to cut a pocket they are just too small…

Added my bag of spinach

Added just enough chicken broth to start a nice steam and covered partially to allow spinach to steam over the chicken thighs…

Added just a hint of white wine after the spinach was steamed to keep the chicken from drying …I go by smell…then added a bit more of chicken broth to mixture about a total of 1/4 box.

1/4 of box was added to the cherry tomatoes in the pot beside the frying pan

Sprinkled in the bowties to accommodate the amount of tomatoes and readjusted the liquid with tomato bisque soup since I did not have tomato paste.

Then stirred and partially covered allowing both dishes to just simmer till we were ready to eat.

Sprinkle cheese is optional…

And Again here it is…..Voila!!!! Sooooo Tasty…. Sooooo Stuffed….

Enjoy…

Tomorrow Night’s Dinner


Tomorrow nights dinner with my flower pot cherry tomatoes

My recipe is here https://tammyehoney.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/chicken-thighs-with-spinach-in-white-wine

What's 4 Dinner Solutions

This is a most excellent way to use up those proliferating cherry tomatoes.聽 I cooked these down in some olive oil with minced garlic, a chopped Vidalia onion, and plenty of fresh basil.聽 Bowties work fine 鈥 any pasta will do.聽 So easy to make:聽 Halve the tomatoes and chop the onion, pour a fair measure of olive oil into a big skillet and warm it up.聽 Toss the veggies in and cook them down, adding some tomato paste towards the end.聽 If the sauce is too thick just ladle some water from the pasta you have a-boil.聽 I add thin sliced fresh basil as it cooks and save some for garnish at the table.聽 Use lots!聽 Dump your drained pasta into the sauce and stir to combine, plate and serve immediately.聽 I grated some Asiago cheese on the pasta tonight.聽 Mmm鈥 cheese!
