It's $3.95 and I have certainly got my money's worth. Yes, it is tapioca flour based and it is derived from Brazilian pan de queso, which I know you are familiar with. She provides both a dairy and non-dairy version. I have only made the non-dairy kind, which I like very much. In fact I made up a new batch this morning and cooked up a large flatbread. I should be clear - it's not really bread, more like a flatbread or cracker, although it makes a very nice sandwich if you don't cook it too crispy. To be honest, she makes the recipe sound a lot more complicated than it really is, if you have any questions after you get it let me know. For one thing, I don't have a scale, I measure the ingredients and it turns out fine.
    Thanks for posting the link Siobahn, I have downloaded the recipe and got all excited then remembered my stove died Wednesday night . Guess I will have to wait to cook this but I am not very good at waiting at all booo

      Is the whole thing down or just the oven? I wonder if it could be cooked in a fry/saute pan? Be sure you save the recipe in the manner she describes, or print it out, or both, because it will disappear in a week or so. (Something that annoys me.)

      • Well, Ex just left. He called yesterday, no notice as usual, and was heading this way to look at his property. I invited him to come by afterwards, although to be honest I really wanted a quiet night at home by myself. Yes, I have a lot of quiet nights at home by myself. There is a reason for that. I like it. As usual, he could not give me any kind of time frame for when he would arrive. I made myself a rather indulgent comfort meal of rice noodles, onions, tomato sauce, and cut-up hot dogs. (Okay, this what my grandma used to make for me, with regular spaghetti of course. She called it Spanish noodles.) I ate some, had a glass of red wine, and watched DVDs of Big Bang Theory and read a book. He showed up at 11 PM! He called about 10:45, said he was almost there and asked if he could pick anything up. He knows full well (or should) that no shops are open here. Of course he had not eaten. He literally inhaled the Spanish noodles. God knows when he last ate. Don't worry, he's not wasting away, in fact I am a bit concerned at how portly he is getting. I was very tired, as I have been saying I am asleep by 10 PM most nights. As usual he offered to share my bed and as usual I said no and told him to sleep in the cave.

        This morning I cooked a big breakfast for us and we went for a short bike ride so he could critique my form. Apparently my form is very good as he had no criticism. He went off, back to look at his property again and do some errands like get a P.O. box. I was frankly so glad to see him off. Just not feeling social right now! Not depressed, not blah, but just not feeling like much. I had planned to go to the Y to either swim or do TRX or spin or maybe all three, but to be honest I don't want to wake myself up as I have to work tonight and I will not mind getting some more sleep. So it's off to bed with me (alone! or just with felines).

        Funny how the cats sense my mood or take their social cues from me. They all like him very much, but this visit Slim Cat hid under the bed and BW Cat hid under the blankets. Oboe apparently slept next to my head all night, which he never does.

          • I am a pretty social person - but over past 5 years I've grown to love my time alone at home. I don't much like going places alone - even running errands I would prefer to do with my hubby - but I do appreciate my quiet mornings. I'd rather see my hubby getting home by 6:30 - but this time of year its normally closer to 8:30. This is odd for me because I have always disliked any time alone. I guess I wasn't comfortable with myself up until the past few years. Odd how we change as we pass into our later years.

            4. Embrace today

            6. Respect my body
            7. Cultivate joy
            8. Find my passion
            9. Meditate on peace in my soul

            • Feeling a little discombobulated, I think it is because I got off my self-imposed schedule. Getting to sleep almost two hours late, although I still got 7 hrs, is taking a bit of a toll. And I didn't get some things done that I would have liked to accomplish, just out of sheer forgetfulness. Hope I'm not getting Alzheimer's! (No, I don't really think that.) I completely forgot to pick up my mail and take some things back to the library. Yikes.

              I can report, however, that the new scratching post for the felines is a resounding success. They LOVE it.

                  The whole thing has died and we have just sold our house so I am really unimpressed as I have to replace it then move!
                  I have sent the recipe to a friend and asked her to make it for me. She thinks it does not seem very primal with the mashed root veg and all. What are your thoughts?

                  • Root veg are totally primal! I always make mine with sweet potato but I have made it with regular old white potatoes and it turned out fine. Obviously it will take on the color of whatever root veg you choose and some people are put off by the orange color of SP, although for the life of me I don't know why. I think it looks very appetizing. Tell her to be sure not to overmix as the tapioca starch will break down and it will get watery. Still edible, though, but the dough will be very wet. Tapioca starch breaks down much, much easier than gluten.

                    • Okay - I finally broke down and paid for the bread recipe! Saved and printing.

                      • I hope you like it! And I hope it might help you avoid grains. I really like it - it's really good! I have only made the paleo (non-dairy) version but I am sure the one with dairy is also good.

                          • Tip for Today

                            Just get started. Do something. Anything. Start small and create a flow. Just clean your desk. Or pay your bills. Or wash the dishes. Take out the garbage. You just need to get started. When you have finished that small task you’ll feel more alert and ready to go do the next thing. You just need to get started to get motivated. So if you really don’t feel like doing anything, start with something small and work your way out up.
