too funny Greg Who Cooks! Actually once I had a fungus infection on my skin and couldn't get a strong enough anti-fungal over the counter. Went to my horse vet and got it from him. That jumped started the treatment and then just got the OTC after.

Reason I went to the vet?..... it was a 2 year wait to get an appointment with a dermatologist.

My SIL needed an ankle fusion - 6 year wait and the operation would be free or pay $7,000.oo and have it done in less than a month!

I know about pets and vet meds. Actually I've had a dry scalp problem and there's a medicated shampoo that the FDA won't let be sold over the counter, but my dog has the same problem and dog shampoo has the same ingredient in the same amount that the FDA won't allow for sale to humans.

I keep forgetting to try it. My doctor said don't use it more than 2x a week max.

I've found I can't depend on the instructions included in many recipes. I would have checked before an hour to see if the loaf had risen long enough. Most "instructions" that include times are what worked in the test kitchen. My kitchen tests might be completely different. Better luck next time.

Which size pan did you end up using? the 9x5 or the smaller one?

Oldvine: normally I start out checking at 30 min and then 15, 10 etc. I'm always anxious to get it in the oven. Plus my house is heated with a wood burning stove so the temps fluctuate a lot, I like to make sure it is even raising to begin with. Well, I got busy and the sun was in the kitchen and...

Addie: I usually try to follow the instructions exactly, at least the first time. I used the smaller pan as recommended. Especially as this is G-F bread where height is often a problem (or at least keeping it up!)

I will try again. The most I can do with this loaf is make toast. It is far too crumbly and dry to make a sandwich. I'm trying to immulate, emmulate COPY a loaf called Udi (or something) I can make a sandwich out of that - especially grilled cheese, yummmmm.

Well since this time it will be your second time, try using the larger one. You just might get better results.

Thank you for the suggestion, I will send a message to my doc for a specialist in allergies.

l've been sensitive to lactose for years and never knew it. It was only recently that being on meds for acid reflux I realized all those years I was drinking milk to calm the burning in my stomach - thinking more along the lines of ulcers and wondering why it never really helped.... duhhh.... Dr. Dragn be ashamed of yourself for the self diagnostics!
Hell's teeth - and I thought waiting lists in the NHS were bad.

Not sure if it still applies but about 20 years ago I read that in UK it's illegal for a (human) doctor to treat an animal but perfectly OK for a vet to treat a human. Odd. Also, if you go to the pharmacy to buy something over the counter, such as cough mixture or nappy cream for your horse's cough or sore skin, you must never tell them that it's for an animal because they aren't allowed to sell human products for animal use.
