Cooking Free : 200Flavorful Recipes for People with Food Allergies and Multiple Food Sensitivi

I love this book! It has many recipes with alternate ingredients for those who must omit certain foods from their diets. The selection is diverse, from baked goods to main dishes to condiments to making your own rice milk. Each recipe comes with a set of 4 icons (gluten, dairy, egg, sugar) to help you easily know if it can be made without a specific allergen. For example, there is a gingerbread recipe that needs eggs to work (the egg picture is not crossed out on top). Often there will be additional substitutions at the bottom of the recipe, or the next recipe will be an alternate one, such as gingerbread without eggs. The layout makes finding recipes easy. The appendix/glossary/resource sections are very detailed and helpful in finding the right tools, ingredients, substitutions, techniques, and support.
The only downside I see about this book is the lack of pictures, but those are only the icing on the cake!

This lady REALLY knows her stuff. There are lots of basic recipes in this book, such as brownies, bagels, pretzels, pizza dough, crackers, flaky pie crust you'd be proud to serve, even recipes for sauces and toppings, plus lots more comfort foods you've missed since going gluten-free. Her motto is to make it good, period, not just "good for gluten free". Check out her website: glutenfreeonashoestring.com

This is a must-have book for anyone on a GF diet.

I love the way the author puts in lots of extra info for the reader, such as maps, what it was like to live in those times, how things were done, pronunciations of harder words, diagrams and illustrations. Everything you need for a well-rounded character report in just one book. Easy reading.
