I had been researching pasta machines since September when I did not receive on for my birthday. I decided that I did not need an electric one (although it would have been nice) and that I could get all of the attachments and come under the cost of the electric one if I went with the hand crank one.
I went to http://www.walmart.com to make my final purchase as they were the cheapest and offered free shipping if my order was over $100.
If you love pasta, then you’ll adore the Weston 01-0201 6 Inch Manual Pasta Machine. With the adjustable, 6-inch rollers, you can have almost any thickness of pasta you want to make for any occasion. A double-cutter attachment means you can make both fettuccine and spaghetti, while easy-to-follow instructions help you along step by step. The included recipe booklet keeps the machine fresh year after year.

I had to go to http://www.amazon.com to find my drying rack and a good cookbook to go with my machine. I was pleased to find a Weston Drying Rack at Amazon for $9.99 so that was really reasonable. I will be making my lasagna for Christmas with Gluten Free Flour.
For $9.99 it is easier than the flour surface and takes up less room as I am at a loss for space. I always prefer to go to Amazon when I am looking to price compare an Item.
That was my goal to be corn free and gluten free with my lasagna before Christmas.
I have frozen several batches of homemade spaghetti sauce that I made from the vine tomatoes that my roofer brought me so I am good to go with my sauce.
Now to conquer the battle of the cheese. That will be at least an hour in the store with my list that I was able to get from http://www.cornallergens.com/food/corn-free-cooking-baking.php that I take with me when I shop.
The actual list if you do not want to go through the entire website is located here
I actually discussed my corn allergy the other day when purchasing insurance to find out that my new insurance agent has just found out that she also has a corn allergy along with several other allergies. She also thought for the longest time that she was just losing her mind and was perhaps becoming a hypochondriac since no one else around her seemed to be bothered by the same allergies that she had.
She stated that a huge weight had been lifted off from her shoulders by my talking and sharing with her. I hope that by spreading the information that I have obtained around and others sharing with me that the world will be better equipped to help us survive our allergy one day at a time and one step at a time.
Thank you for reading.
