Cookie, I am a bit confused ... do you mean you use maize cornflour for thickening in place of 'regular' cornflour, or as a replacement for icing sugar?

Instead of sprinkling icing sugar on your goodies to look nice, which then dissolves, you use maize cornflour to sprinkle and make them look nice. It doesn't dissolve like the icing sugar does.

Cookie, I suspect that the Snow, has cornflour mixed with the icing sugar.

The Age book I bought because I like half of the cooks.
The Gluten free book is interesting as the recipes are simple.

Nice purchases Chookie.  You will enjoy reading those.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Thatís not naughty Chookie. They are wise purchases to guide you in your new line of health studies.

Went to Wilsonís to stock up on Fruit and veg.  They have a new product.  Boxed up mixed veggies for $5 or $8. They are supposed to be seconds but looked good to me. Each box was different.  You could pick one that contained what you would normally buy.

It certainly does. I find good fruit and veggies are quite expensive. Good on you Chookie.
