Flour Power

A diagnosis of Celiac disease has broadened my horizon. Call me a poor sport but substitutions for "the real thing" have always made me feel deprived. Ice milk should be illegal and I'd rather do without than use Fat Free Half and Half. What IS that anyway? Half skim milk and half...??

Thankfully there are now tons of Gluten Free products and recipes around. I'm not looking for GF. What I'm looking for are non wheat flours in the "real version." Imagine my delight to learn that corn starch and egg is used in American Chinese recipes to fry chicken. I'm excited to read about Indian besan (chickpea flour). Suddenly grits sound fun and I'm dreaming about perfect masa for tamales. Almond flour? Sounds delicious...what do you use it for? Rice flour?

I'll be grateful for your ideas.
