cooking for Jackson, day 6

August 6, 2008 at 10:26 pm Leave a comment

I’m happy to report that Jackson’s skin is better, a lot better. He looks like a different boy. His skin isn’t normal and smooth yet, but the improvement is extraordinary. Really, day 3, it looked a lot better. A few nights ago, I let him have some fries from Wendy’s.  The next morning, he woke up scratching and was all red and a little bit bumpy, but cleared up by the afternoon.  I’m assuming that the oil (vegetable which really means soybean) it was cooked in is what caused the reaction.

Tonight I have some cookies in the oven. I’m using a pre-made mix by Namaste. The package says, “This mix is free of:

  • gluten
  • wheat
  • soy
  • nuts
  • potato
  • corn
  • dairy
  • casein

The directions say to add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil and 2 T of water. I used grapeseed oil. He can’t have eggs so I used Ener-g egg replacemer. The box warns that its best used with things made from scratch, not with mixes. Oh well. I mixed it up and it was very crumbly so I added a little more water. Still crumbly. So I mixed up some flaxseed and water and poured that in. That seemed to make the batter stick together.  They seemed so plain so I added in some raisins.

I hope he likes them.
