But normally I watch as others eat donuts, pancakes, french bread and most importantly fried chicken. For the past year I have been in Iraq where others made my meals for me (that and my laundry), so being home and being in charge of cooking again I find having problems with cooking gluten-free substitute meals. My husband has hated everything. So when I told him about the meal he looked at me skeptically. Finally, after bribing him with onion rings I began the process.
Most of the ingredients were easy to get except the flour substitute. I am not that familiar with Texas and shop at the Local Wal-Mart. They only have regular flour or Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Mix. It was not until someone told me to try HEB. Ahhhh the mother load... I got the goods I needed. So I began....
I am not a baker, chef or at all handy in the kitchen. I do enough to feed me and the hubby, and I can make gravy and biscuits to keep the southern boy happy. Add to the fact that I had to read a recipe..
The recipe does have you weigh out the dry goods of the flour mix and the corn meal. Which scared me slightly but I pushed through. Mixing all the ingredients together. Now I did have to add more milk then the recipe called for but I think that was due to my scale not being the greatest.
But I began to dip the hot dogs as the recipe called. My husband at this time got curious and came into the kitchen promptly telling me I was doing it wrong and took over (I think he just wanted to fry things). So after a glare as I took a photo and him saying it was bad enough he had to star in a comic strip he was not about to be shown making corn dogs I stopped taking pictures. With him in charge of the frying and such I started getting the plates together. 15 minutes later all four dogs were done, a couple of hush puppies (an idea I got from the comment section of the blog) and the onion rings.

I prefer BBQ dry rubs. Try explaining that to security out side the DFAC
