1. Try a recipe, and then try it again. Don't give up if it doesn't work out the first time.
2. Don't try to adjust a regular yeast bread recipe by simply exchanging flours. It will not work and you will get discouraged. There are several fabulous GF bread recipes that have been thoroughly tested - modify one of those to fit your needs instead.
3. Use recipes that are moist already- they hold together better.
4. Recipes that are supposed to be drier (like cornbread) also work well no one can tell there's rice flour in them.
5. Use Featherlight mix when making pastries or cookies. Use GF mix when making bread. Or use a combination of both to make dessert breads. These two mixes seem to act and taste the most like wheat flour. Bette Hagman's Bean Flour mix also acts much like wheat, but sometimes has a funny aftertaste.
6. Don't forget to add the xanthan gum! In general, use about 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum for 2 cups of flour mix.
7. For Cakes: If your first attempt turns out too dry or heavy, try adding about 1/2 cup applesauce, mayonnaise, or sour cream.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."

"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
