After using this donut baker for both plain donuts and the Apple Butter minis, I’m very glad that I only paid $4 for it. To get the donuts cooked fully, I ended up baking them for 7 minutes. The bottom of the donuts browned evenly to a chestnut brown but the tops were lighter.
If I wanted to go out an buy a machine again, I’d get this Sunbeam Mini Donut Maker simply because the reviews are better, only 6 1 stars overall. Love the Baby Blue too
I’ve submitted this recipe to a contest on Pure Maple Canada, leftover donuts make an amazing bread pudding.
I’ve always loved the flavor of chili rellenos, those gooey spicy bundles of pepper stuffed with cheese.
My body doesn’t love the quantity of cheese they typically have, it slows me down.
Like many heavier dishes, I’ve found that by adding rice to the filling. it lightens up considerably.
I added a bit of chorizo sausage to make the filling richer in flavor and to add back a bit of protien.
Combined with the spicy poblanos, this makes for a quickly made, flavorful dinner
By using a prepared green chili sauce, it’s even simpler to prepare,
Use as much or as little as you wish for cheese. There are so many varieties of choice
Feel free to switch up the cooked grain as well, I’ve made this with millet and sorghum with terrific results

Antibiotic Exposure and the Development of Coeliac Disease
Background The intestinal microbiota has been proposed to play a pathogenic role in coeliac disease (CD). Although antibiotics are common environmental factors with a profound impact on intestinal microbiota, data on antibiotic use as a risk factor for subsequent CD development are scarce.
Methods In this population-based case–control study we linked nationwide histopathology data on 2,933 individuals with CD (Marsh stage 3; villous atrophy) to the Swedish Prescribed Drug Register to examine the association between use of systemic antibiotics and subsequent CD. We also examined the association between antibiotic use in 2,118 individuals with inflammation (Marsh 1–2) and in 620 individuals with normal mucosa (Marsh 0) but positive CD serology. All individuals undergoing biopsy were matched for age and sex with 28,262 controls from the population.
Results Antibiotic use was associated with CD (Odds ratio [OR] = 1.40; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.2 7–1.53), inflammation (OR = 1.90; 95% CI = 1.72–2.10) and normal mucosa with positive CD serology (OR = 1.58; 95% CI = 1.30–1.92). ORs for prior antibiotic use in CD were similar when we excluded antibiotic use in the last year (OR = 1.30; 95% CI = 1.08–1.56) or restricted to individuals without comorbidity (OR = 1.30; 95% CI = 1.16 – 1.46).
Conclusions The positive association between antibiotic use and subsequent CD but also with lesions that may represent early CD suggests that intestinal dysbiosis may play a role in the pathogenesis of CD. However, non-causal explanations for this positive association cannot be excluded.

Are advisory statements, such as “made in a factory that also processes wheat products” permitted on labels of foods bearing a gluten-free claim?
Yes. The final rule does not prohibit the inclusion of an advisory label statement, such as “made in a facility that also processes wheat,” on foods labeled gluten-free, provided that the statement is truthful and not misleading. FDA would need to evaluate food labels on a case-by-case basis to determine whether a specific advisory statement included along with a gluten-free claim would be potentially misleading to the consumer. However, any food whose label bears a gluten-free claim, regardless of whether it also has an advisory statement, must meet all the requirements of the final rule.
