I wanted ravioli. My gluten-free noodle recipe may also be used to make ravioli. But before starting, I needed to reduce the recipe to half. I wanted to make only enough ravioli for two.
I began the process of creating the dough. I added the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Immediately, I knew something was not right. The dough was too wet. I found my mistake. I forgot to reduce the milk to one-half.
(If you have a crisis, I’m not the one you should look for to solve it. I get excited and make things get worse.)
Alarmed, I recklessly tossed more flour into the bowl. Flour flew past bowl and landed on the floor and on my feet. I was wearing flip-flops, so flour got between my toes.
I kept going. I added another egg. I kneaded the dough and rolled it out. I prayed. I always pray. God is good. He heard me, because the ravioli was good. It should have been a total failure. We enjoyed it. I’ll serve ravioli again soon, because I want to develop a gluten-free recipe for it.
I’m glad you’re sharing your gluten-free experiences. I’m not on a gluten-free diet, but my best friend is. She came to visit me last weekend and I made your crepes recipe you posted a couple weeks ago. (I didn’t have the all-purpose flour, so I used rice flour and it worked fine.) Even better- my friend’s husband normally does the cooking so I mixed the batter and she cooked them. Armed with confidence she could make them at home, I sent the recipe with her. Thank you 🙂
I’m glad to hear that you made the recipe. And with rice flour! I’m going to start purchasing some of the many gluten-free flour products that are on the market. There are a lot of recipes that call for flour made from different grains. Thanks for telling me that encouraging story. I’m glad your friend was able to see how easy it is. Blessings to you, Janna…
Your story is my laugh of the day, Carol Ann. You found a way to make the mistake work, looks delicious.

I’m glad you enjoyed a laugh, Maxi. It’s a miracle that it worked after such a disaster in the making. I also am able to laugh now that my toes are clean and the flour cleaned off the floor. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings to you, Maxi…
You can do no wrong in the kitchen, girl! I’ve done that with a recipe, when adapting, I should write down the amounts I need and not rely on my head!
The funny thing is this: I did write it down. I wrote down the wrong amount. Duh. Oh well. Who would’a thought? Thanks for your visit and comment. Blessings to you, Patti…
