Headed to Crazy Town on the GFCF Train

I'm on a mission. I didn't think I baked a whole lot, so taking the steps to become a GF family wasn't a big deal. I figured that I baked about 3 or 4 times a year. We wouldn't miss flour at all!

Or so I thought.

I've found that I: make fried chicken (in coconut oil, thank you), bake cupcakes, bake loaves of bread in my bread machine, bake zucchini bread, make pancakes (ok, so Dear Husband does that) and bake banana bread often enough to actually need an all-purpose flour on hand. I also have the motivation to make some pumpkin muffins.

But I don't have the right flour. *bangs head into wall*

So I've been scouring the internet for a recipe for an all-purpose flour that I can mix up here at home. I *thought* I bought the right ingredients, but alas, I was wrong. One thing I found out, though, is that potato flour (not potato starch, the 2 are not the same) would be really tasty for fried chicken. I'm actually looking forward to trying that.

I have Brown Rice Flour, White Rice Flour, Potato Flour, and Tapioca Flour. And Cornstarch.

So, dear readers, what do you suggest as an at-home recipe for all-purpose flour?

Also, is Rice Milk a fine sub for cow's milk or soy milk?

Pamela's baking mix subsitutes cup for cup in every recipe I've ever tried it in and is great. It's a baking mix, but I still use the baking soda/powder/salt that the recipe calls for.
