The Pinterest recipes I looked at these two days were Gluten Free Hoisin Sauce at the Gluten Free Lifesaver, and then a Gluten free version of General Tso's Tofu from Grumpy's Honey Bunch, which required a GF hoisin sauce to make it work.
It turned out pretty-pretty!

Trying to make more complicated recipes for my son that he will eat, as he is both a growing boy who needs a ton of calories, and doesn't have as many food restrictions as I do.
With this being for my son, all I had to do was make sure everything was GF, which mean making a GF hoisin sauce, which I had all the ingredients for, and using that and a GF soy sauce for those two ingredients in the original General Tso's recipe. It turned out great.
Nothing except having to make the sauces ahead of time, so planning issues, I suppose.
What I did:
1. Made the recipe pretty much exactly as it was.
Why did I make these choices:
I always used to love the super bad for you General Tso's at various Americanized Chinese restaurants, even Panda Express, so finding a recipe for it made me feel really nostalgic.
Great. I felt bad that my son ate it all and still wanted more!
How would I change this:
Nothing, this was awesome.
Would I make it again:
Oh man, it has tons of allergens. It has soy, grains, sulfites, peanuts, corn, high histamine, and so on. It's pretty much gluten, dairy, and egg free, and that's about it.
